The Sky is Falling is the eighth episode of the third season of the CBS drama series "Touched by an Angel." This episode was marked as a Halloween episode, but aired November 3, 3 days after Halloween.


Monica is assigned to Leonard Pound (Brian Keith), a man who has lived a hard life, and doesn't want to recall October 30, 1938 - the night of Orson Welles' radio broadcast of the War of the Worlds...neither does Monica. This was also the night Monica and Tess met.

On that night, young Leonard and his family gathered around the radio. His father, a state trooper, left the house to investigate the flaming object that reportedly fell out of the sky nearby Grovers Mill. Everyone else retreated for the church, with Tess trying to calm everyone down. Then, Monica appears as an angel, saying to everyone "be not afraid." Thinking she was an alien, everyone flees out of the church. Tess is more than angered, and yells at Monica. Later, Tess encounters Dottie, the Angel of Etiquette, and tells Tess that God has plans for her and Monica.

Meanwhile, Leonard encounters Penny, who has a flashlight. They get lost, and find a police car. Leonard learns his father was killed in a car accident. Years later, Leonard and Penny married, but Penny died recently.

In the present, Monica finds Leonard trying to kill himself. Monica stops him, saying she can help console his wife's death, because "sometimes all an angel can do is cry with you."
