Episode Summary

EDIT
When Cory has nightmares where the recurring theme finds him trying to kill Shawn in imaginative ways, he goes to Feeny for an interpretation. Meanwhile, Eric finds a new, but odd, roommate -- one who seems to have seen Hitchcock's "Psycho" once too often.

  • Not an episode I particulary like

    5.0
    This episode bugs me. I cannot totally put my finger on why. I know that is realistic that someone like Cory will have nightmares about getting married. And yes, the dream itself does seem like it really could be something that would be dreamed about. Considering Cory's relationship with his other friends, especially Shawn, it is also understandable about how he would he feel towards getting married to Topanga.



    I don't like this episode. Part of it is because they do keep forcing Cory to finish the dream and I don't see that as being real. Yes, finishing the dream will accomplish what he wants, but I do not think that you can force yourself to dream something. I think it unrealistic towards the end of the episode.



    It is not a bad episode, just not one that I happen to like.moreless

    Definitely not the best episode of Boy Meets World and probably the worst of the season. Yes, I got it, Cory having anxiety before the wedding, but they could have done so much more with this plot, why did we have to delve in to Cory's dreams. Cory is killing Shawn in his dreams, and he's trying to find out why.



    The episode ends bluntly with Cory having doubts about marriage. "Say whaaa..?" Nothing was remotely funny about this episode, the only part I found myself interested in was Lauren's surprise appearance in Cory's dreams, and Cory shoving everyone down the elevator was somewhat amusing, but this wasn't Boy Meets World.



    Having a strange roommate is nothing new, and I felt like this whole plot has been done before, so a bit predictable with the subplot. Not a very entertaining or even funny episode of Boy Meets World. I guess I'll give this episode points for plot development, and did they really have to use the same eerie music as "And Then There Was Shawn"? An episode that was loads better than this one?moreless
  • superb

    9.0
    cory has dreams and in each of them, he kills shawn. with the aid of feeny will cory get to the bottom of these dreams and stop them from happening? what do these dreams mean? eric movies in with a strange guy, in a hilarious parody of Pyscho.



    good episode, cory's behavior, especially in his dreams, was a bit too spooky for me, i'll be honest, he did scare me a little, but overall the rest was fine, eric's plot was hilariois i thought, and so because of this the episode definitely gets an A+ as a grade from memoreless
  • Cory dreams about Shawn dying.

    9.5
    Cory has strange nightmares where he is killing Shawn. He fears sleeping. Cory talks to Mr. Feeny. Mr. Feeny tells him to finish the dream because in every one, Cory doesn't actually see Shawn die. Cory has another dream and finishes it. It turns out to be about Topanga and marriage. Lauren is also there, but she represents all that Cory will be giving up in order to marry Topanga. Eric moves in with a fellow student, Adam. Adam is very strange, as he still has a pet bird who is dead, and talks to his mother, even though she is dead.



    This was a great episode! It was a little strange though. I thought it was funny, and I liked seeing Lauren again. I thought that Adam and Eric were funny! This episode gets a 9.5!moreless
