When producer Sophie Trouw traveled to Massachusetts last summer, she profiled a welcoming group of friends who were willing to open up about their traumatic experiences for InsideEdition.com.
But that wasn't the whole story.
Trouw appeared on Episode 5 of The Breakdown to reveal what really happened when she camped out with Starborn, a support group for people who say they've experienced an alien abduction.
Before she got there, members of the group warned her to bring extra batteries "because they are known to drain when the aliens are around and you're not going to be able to shoot if you have enough batteries," she recalled.
She was skeptical. "I completely disregarded it. I was like, 'There's no way that's going to happen.'"
But after arriving at the campsite, the crew decided to head to the grocery store and they noticed a warning light pop up inside their car.
"The car battery's almost dead," Trouw recalled. "The other producer and I looked at each other and we were like, 'Oh my God.'"
After also experiencing audio issues, "the man we were interviewing, one of our main subjects, he was just like, 'I told you so.'"
She even had second thoughts about attending the shoot, she said.
"There was definitely a moment of — or a few moments — 'what have I done? I'm scared. Let's stick with each other the whole time.' But the folks of Starborn support were so welcoming, and so lovely, and that quickly vanished, those feelings of fear," she said.
