"You haven't got a prayer."
―Alien in possession of Granny's body

"Thy Kingdom Come" is the third episode of the 1st season of the War of the Worlds TV series.


The aliens trek to Canada in order to free more of their sleeping brethren. The Blackwood Project's only hope in finding them lies in the scattered mind of War of the Worlds veteran Sylvia Van Buren.


Sylvia Van Buren, a veteran of the 1953 invasion, tells Harrison and Ironhorse that the aliens are on the loose in northern Montana.

The aliens possess prison hockey players, then a vacationing family. The team follows their transmissions to a Canadian army base where the gate guards have been killed. The team members are arrested, but escape. The aliens locate others stored in a lake on the base and revive them, possessing many soldiers in the interim. Using explosives, the team drops a power line into the lake, electrocuting many aliens, but other aliens escape.




Sylvia Van Buren: Harry, do you remember Clayton's study of the alien eye?
Harrison: Vaguely. Why?
Sylvia Van Buren: Because the way these things see us is more like...this doohickey little Saint Nicky.
Suzanne: Harrison, we're wasting our time.
Harrison: Hang in there, Suzanne.
Suzanne: But she's mad.
Sylvia Van Buren: Oh, yes, dear. Quite mad! And so would you be if you lived in a world all topsy turvy. I told them the aliens would be back and they didn't believe me. They said I was insane. So they hooked electrodes up to my brain 'til I couldn't even remember my name. Bzz, bzz, bzz! Rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain. This is not Spain, Harry.
Harrison: What are you trying to tell me, Sylvia?
Sylvia Van Buren: This is someplace on Earth. As seen from...outer space.
