    A solid episode that reveals more about the night of Johnny's accident whilst intertwining with a case of a missing girl and the start of a relationship with a new cast member.



    The episode starts confusing but reveals itself as it goes on, the main premise is the night of Johnnys accident and how he survives. You find out in this episode that someone actually pulls John from the car before the paramedics arrive - by the end of the episode you find out who it is.



    Also the episode builds up the relationship with John and Rebecca Caldwell, who was introduced in the previous two episodes.



    The episode is fairly well written and directed with one or two moments, the paramedic character is a bit of a nothing character but some of John's visions are intense, espicially in the ambulance, with a chilling moment.



    Good Solid, Episode.moreless
  • The night of Johnny's accident, up close and personal.

    10
    A young girl goes missing, and Johnny begins having visions of her that are intertwined with visions of the night of his accident. Initially, it's hard to understand how the two are connected, but Johnny soon begins to realize that the only way for him to find the girl is for him to also work through his memories of that awful night.



    This episode showcases so much of what is good about The Dead Zone - an intriguing storyline with a hard-to-predict twist, a building sense of dread and tension, giving us a deeper insight into the characters and their relationships, and excellent performances all around. The growing bond between Johnny and Rebecca becomes clearer as the visions become more and more specific about exactly what happened during and immediately after the crash.



    The way the two stories - the missing girl and Johnny's crash - are wound together is interesting, and it's nice to have a chance to know more about Johnny's accident and how he was able to survive it.moreless
