Close Encounters of the Third Kind Scene 24

Scene 24

Scene 24

  • Roy heads to Utah and gets lost again. As he drives, he fumbles with maps and almost drives headfirst into the evacuees' cars.
  • He passes cattle lying on the side of the road, looking dead.
  • At the train station, he sees Jillian. It's chaos—evacuees shoving to get on trains, men hawking caged birds to use as tests of air quality.
  • Roy and Jillian buy some birds and drive on back roads into the evacuation zone. Both are astonished to see that Devils Tower really exists outside of their imaginations.
  • Believing—or more accurately hoping—that the deadly gas story is a fake, they drive closer to Devils Tower, but it isn't long before they're captured by the authorities.
