  • A good episode overall

    9.3
    This was a good episode for a number of reasons, one being because all of the charactors were put into major danger and the other was that we never knew whether Johnny would be able to stop it. The main story was about a storm which appears before the weather stations can track it so it comes as a supprise. Johnny has to warn those who in danger before the storm comes, be he later learns that Sara and Walt are also in danger. Overall i really liked the episode. This has been a great season which should hopefully get better.moreless

    It's episoide like this that makes me enjoy this series, after last week calm episoide with Bruce and his family, i should of guessed this episoide was going to be action-packed, let's start with Jonny teaching, that's quite nice, i'm glad he got something else to do apart from saving people lives . The problem i have with this episoide is the suddenly Jonny keeping to himself in the house, i understand why he would want stay there after what happend with his school friend but last week when he was at Bruce father funeral he seem fine.



    It's great idea doing intervention but you just knew it would get complicated, we will start Dana and Sarah, these two are great chacter the fact they don't like each other yet they both love Jonny, i was on the edge of my seat when i saw Dana almost beening blown away in the storm, i thought, no, they can't kill her off like that but they didn't which made me happy. So Sarah wants to have another baby with Walt to show him she loves him?, come on and it seem Walt know the kid was not his all the along. That's not a good reason to bring a child into this world.



    i really enjoyed jonny making the deal with the storm it was brillant and he did save a lot people along the way, still who was grim man he saw when he was on the ground?, i'm sure we will find out eventually. Still it's a nice change from the Stillson story-line, how long will they drag that out?, we almost half season now.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Trivia: In a previous episode, Johnny says he never has boring visions. However, when touched by Flo McMurtry in this episode and asked by her husband what Johnny saw, he says he simply saw them having a safe trip.

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (5)

    • Much confusion originally arose over whether this episode was the start of a new season - even after USA and various other sources stated the last six episodes would just be a continuation of season 2, on-air commercials continued to refer to an "all-new season of The Dead Zone."

    • Frank Whaley is credited on-screen, reflecting the first of several appearance he'll be making up to the season finale where he plays a major role. The USA Network website doesn't credit him, presumably to keep the exact nature of his role a secret.

    • This episode marks the premiere of the extended summer second season, nicknamed by fans as Season 2.5. "Dead Zone" castmember, John L. Adams (Bruce) wrote in his "behind the scenes" column on the official website that producers referred to these summer episodes as "The Sexy Summer Six." The unaired episode, "The Hunt" was later added into the schedule.

    • Michael Piller took the idea of a mysterious tornado from a similar incident that occurred at Lake Cobbosseecontee, Maine in 1998.

    • On 06-Jul-2003, this episode was the first of the series to be broadcast in "letterbox" format; the aspect ratio is (1.85:1).
