  • Great episode, different than all the others. A great twist to the regular spec-ops, shoot um up, fly by the seat of your pants which would be a normal episode. Variety of plots makes this show fun to watch.moreless

    Great episode, different than all the others. A great twist to the regular spec-ops, shoot um up, fly by the seat of your pants which would be a normal episode. Starts off with Kim having a dream. turns out she is dreaming of an actual mission going down now. The commander gets wind of this dream and takes it out on Brown thinking he put the lives of his fellow Unit members in jeopardy. Brown is monitoring the mission in North Korean waters from his base in Fort Brag. They are trying to get a North Korean defector to safety. There are the usual wrench in the works as the team does their job, but meanwhile Kim and her husband are being interrogated for treason. The variety of plots makes this show fun to watch.moreless
  • Not one of the best episodes but still good!

    This is not one of the best episodes of the show. But still, it was pretty good. Think that Kim was only saying stuff in a dream. The Coloniel is only protecting his men. But still, think that he needed to back down and let Bob do his job. And not try to interrogate Kim or even their daughter for that matter. Jonas, Blaine, and Mac I think, despite being in charge. Really shouldn't had shot down the South Korean commander. Because that would be a charge of treason and murder. Linda Hunt was good in the show. As she is an underrated actress. Hope that she can come on back.moreless
  • Not perfect, but almost a classic.

    Its difficult for me not to give this a 10. Its one of my favourite episodes as Kim is one of the main protaganists. Having her totting a H&K SMG would normally warrant such a mark!



    As it is, its well written having two strong plotlines intertwining. Kims performance makes her apparent sixth sense feelings for the ongoing mission very credible. While the col. does a great job of being the foil of conflict for Bob and Kim. Meanwhile, even if the actual mission is low key, the close confines of the sub provide more adhesive to keep a viewer watching as the N Koreans and the sub-captain do their best to twart Jonas and the others.



    What I loved most about this episode is the way Kim manages to turn things around and have the Col believe her, with the help of the army intell. medium. Especially poignant is the end scene where the ambulance and raven are such up a tree as Jonas and the rest of the unit bring their package to the pick up point. Those images, apparently surreal in the context of Kims dream are brought into perspective by that scene.



    Definitely a great installment that should be watched.moreless

    Kim dreams about herself inside a submarine and with members of the unit being in it. At the same time, Jonas and the unit is are taking part in a mission that involves an old ww2 submarine. Col. Ryan tries to figure out how Kim is able to pick up details about his husband's planned mission over north korea. it's a really exciting episode. bob's mission might get scrap when ryan figures out that the mission is compromised. the underwater scenes were awesome. the paranormal link examined in the show looked really entertaining and mind boggling at the same time. it's a good episode.moreless
  • One of the better episodes on The Unit.

    This had to be one of the better episodes that has been aired. A little bit spooky with the old woman, but kept me hooked the entire episode never the less. The best part had to be when the Korean commander of the sub threatned Jonas and Charlie, and Mack shot him dead from the side. Another good part was the part of Kim's dream where she is killing all those guys on the submarine. Unreal, but still fun to watch. But, maybe the best part was at the end where the car is in the tree and the raven flies off of it, signaling hope. Great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: Colonel Ryan says the submarine must be near the surface (periscope depth) to send and receive signals. However, Jonas is seen using his hand-held GPS to chart the submarine's course. GPS uses high-frequency microwave transmissions, as most satellites do. If Colonel Ryan were unable to contact the sub because it is underwater (too deep for his transmissions) it would follow that the sub also cannot receive similar transmissions from the GPS satellites. Most subs use an internal navigation system (tracking engine power, turns, headings, etc) for exactly this reason.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Tiffy: Either you're getting too much sex or not enough.
      Kim: Only in my dreams.
      Tiffy: Where was your husband last night, as you were dreaming of our husbands?
      Kim: Not in my bed, all night at the office.

    • Colonel Ryan: (to Bob) Your daughter just sold you out.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Sub Conscious: Episode title

      It alludes to the mission (and Kim's dreams) taking place on a submarine. But it also alludes to the connection between Kim and Bob. More specifically that Kim and Bob seems to be communicating on the sub or un-conscious level.

    • At the beginning of the episode when Kim enters the submarine with a cat suit and an SMG, the music is very reminiscent of the Mission: Impossible theme. Mission: Impossible is a TV series in which a secret team of government operatives combats dictators, evil organizations and crime lords - not unlike The Unit.
