    Texas Ranger Captain Push dreams about a couple of EMT personnel gets kidnapped and murdered somewhere in phoenix. Captain Push travels to Phoenix to explain to Allison about everything that's been happening in his dreams. When Captain Push goes through his ongoing pacemaker check up, he finds out that his dreams connect to something that might happen in the hospital where he is about to get surgery. Allison is clueless about a lot of things in this episode as Captain Push comes up with most of the dreams. It's a great episode. The dream sequences were so well made, I can't wait to see the next one.moreless

    Well, what a very special episode. The plot was VERY well done with Captain Push thinking his coma left him psychic but really all his coma did was left him with a vast knowledge beyond his wildest imagination!

    I also loved the back story of Bridgette after her drug assembly finding out her daddy did drugs, and captain push telling her his own lie to make her feel better! It was great to see Bridgette back in character!

    This was by far my favourite episode of the series and one of my favourite episodes ever! Bravo to all the writers, a very special episode indeed.moreless

    This episode was very well done a lot of things were intense, funny and well acted. The episode begins with a violent ambush and murders of two ambulance medics. This time, however, it’s not Allison who saw this in a dream but Captain Push. Captain Push tells Allison what he saw unofficially so she follows through bit by bit and sees that Push also has expanding psychic abilities.



    This episode goes back to the earlier appearance with Push more specifically what happened during and after his coma. It fills in the gaps about how what Push saw during a coma relates the current case.



    There’s also a side story with Bridgette being mad at Joe for lying to her on subject of drugs. Specifically, the question asked was if Joe used drugs and of course, he did use drugs but told Bridgette otherwise. Captain Push helped settle this matter but deep down this side story was a way of talking about the harmful effects of lying.



    The writers also made the episode more interesting by altering Push’s dreams with different clues. Like for instance, when he and Allison visited the crime scene objects and places and even the victims would be different. It was an interesting way to make the episode less predictable. However, as a whole I liked it and they did fill gaps about the Push character and made his character once again be memorable.moreless

    In my estimation, this was a perfect episode! First we see someone other than Allison having a dream. What a nice change of pace! The fact it happens to be Captain Push of the Texas Rangers makes it even better as we have come to know and love this man. Seeing him struggle with the thought of having a psychic dream fits his character so well. Bridgette's story was a hoot as well! So excited to tell her dad about drug assemply at school and all the drug names she has learned was too funny. I knew the minute she asked Joe if he'd done drugs/would do drugs that this was going to be the "white lie" angle. Sure enough, Joe denies any involvment in drugs to his daughter who immediately makes a face. The next morning as she is caught going through his sock drawer was priceless! From the look on her face at being caught to the way she ran out of the room when given a chance.



    Back to Captain Push and his dream. The way the story unfolded with Push being frustrated with the details of his dream not matching the actual evidence was great to add to the mystery. The secondary part of the Push story with his hospital visit was a great way to throw us off the track.



    We go back to the family and Bridgette being hysterical at the dinner table because she doesn't want her Daddy arrested and then Marie starts crying was so real. It was very touching the way Push told Bridgette a story about his dad, which we later learn to be untrue, but how that helped Bridgette to understand the difference between absolute truth and white lies.



    Allison having her dream to clarify what is going to happen and Push realizing he is just a lawman and not a psychic was a nice touch.



    Scanlon getting to ride in to save the day was great.



    The episode kept us guessing until the very end!moreless
