The Twilight Zone Emmy Eligibility

CBS All Access isn’t exactly overflowing with must-see content, with Star Trek Discovery and The Good Fight being the only two original hits in their library. But since The Twilight Zone reboot came along, plenty more people have been flocking to the streaming subscription service, and the show is bound to end up with some Emmy nominations later this year, but not in the category you might think.

Unlike other anthology shows that have landed accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, such as American Horror Story or Fargo, The Twilight Zone won’t be competing in the category for Outstanding Limited Series.

This episode had me literally screaming “What’s going to happen?!” and squirming in my seat. Perhaps some of that was the orange-vanilla coke I drank. But I think most of that was due to the action, drama, and pure emotion that filled this week’s episode.

I don’t know where to start. So let’s go ahead and break down the top emotional moments of the episode.
