  • great episode

    Allison dreams about ariel in a carrie scene. It makes no sense, but when she goes to a clothes store to buy ariel a dress for her school dance, she finds the dead bodies of a mother and daughter who owns the shop. Allison dreams up the dead mother's perspective, while Ariel gets her dreams from the dead teenage daughter. This episode is excellent. ariel gets centerstage on this one as she gets messages from the murdered teen girl. Little by little they piece together the mystery. I really enjoyed this episode, I liked watching it from start to finish. It's a great episode.moreless
  • A very clever episode, starts with an allusion to a classic movie and leaves us guessing as to the identity of the murderer.....

    A very clever episode, it starts with an allusion to a classic movie, Carrie, with Ariel in the lead role.

    Both Ariel and Alison have dreams which are similar but with subtle differences. The dreams force Alison to take Ariel to a dress shop where Alison discovers the bodies of a murdered Mother and Daughter; the daughter was a class-mate of Ariel's.

    The ongoing dreams which Ariel has, culminating in the final dream which both Alison and Ariel have, are played out in such a way as to leave us guessing to the end as to the identity of the murderer.

  • worth watching.

    it's one of those episodes i enjoyed watching, how they did the carrie scene like. i admire stephen king and carrie is one of his best novels so to see a movie based on his book incorporating it in an episode of one of the series i watch is definitely a treat for me. allison and ariel are having dreams that are related to the murders they help solve. it started on the store which allison and ariel went to buy the dress ariel wanted for the prom only to find the owners murdered. soon they both found out what really happened and who was responsible with the help of detective scanlon.moreless
  • Great one!!! Ariel was awesome...

    Brilliant start to the episode with the prom scene a la Carrie! So much fun to watch... and then Ariel having the psychic dreams, just like her mother... I think it was really clever, each of them dreaming about hte murders with a different perspective... just great writing!!!!

    Sofia Vasileva is really proving to be a great actress as her role in the series grows... she was amazing in this episode, only a kid and having to deal with so much horror...

    Allison was great, so protective of her daughter, trying to spare her the gory details....

    In my opinion, this is the best episode in the season so far!!! Hope they keep up the great work!!!moreless
  • Excellent episode.

    This was one of the best episodes of the series. I missed it the first time it aired but saw the repeat. Ariel upset that she has her mother's "gift" was realistic. I normally don't like the way they write Ariel but this was a good story for her. Allison and Ariel seeing the same event from a different victim's point of view was a nice change. The girl playing the teenage victim was very beautiful and did a great job.moreless
