Why is the Outer Limits Season 1 penultimate episode ("Birthright") missing?

I've just completed watching the first season of The Outer Limits (the 1990's series), but the penultimate episode ("Birthright") is missing. On the episode list, Season One skips from E20 to E22. I didn't even notice it was missing until bits of it appeared in the final episode (a 'clip show'). I found the episode name from other lists of the season Episodes (wikipedia, Amazon). Is there any way to see the episode Birthright? Thank you.

@Ike1947-

On which channel are you watching Outer Limits?

I'm not sure what you mean by a 'channel'. I have a Roku stick plugged into my TV, and watch it on hdmi2 on that TV. I then simply go to "The Roku Channel". Is that what you're asking? Sorry if I'm not answering your question.

You'll probably need @RokuDanny-R or @RokuKariza-D to step in.

Total speculation here, but part of the problem may be that the first season of The Outer Limits (1995) actually had 21 episodes. Sandkings was a two-hour premiere when it was first broadcast on Showtime. That made the first season 21 episodes, containing 22 hours of content. Sandkings was divided into two episodes for later showings and video release, much as Star Trek: The Next Generation premiere Encounter at Farpoint was done.

I'm wondering if that apparent discrepancy may have confused someone involved in setting up the episodes for streaming. Again, just speculating. Or, this could have nothing to do with it. I mention it in case it does matter when Roku starts research into the issue.

Thank you for your comments. It will be interesting to see if anyone has a full explanation--and a solution. Smiley Happy

I had noticed the episode numbering discrepancy on Roku caused by the first episode. But I'm hoping that because Roku lists the last two available episodes of Season 1 as E20 and E22, that they'll be able to find 'their' E21.
