    This episode was EXCELLENT. We get to find out all kinds of new things and get action on all kinds of fronts. First, we find out how the new students get shipped into the school and why they don't remember anything about their capture (and in the process get to find out that Suki might have a little crush on Ian [yes, that was the sound of CJs fingers snapping in true mean-girl format]). We also get a lot of backstory on Tower Prep, how and why it was founded and by whom, its purpose for being established, and the fact that whoever controls the school now is trying to turn the students into something the thought of which horrified the benevolent founder (but of course, to keep the story interesting, we don't get to find out exacly what the heck it is). Connor's introduction was masterfully crafted by there were several mind-boggling mysteries left. How is Ian in a picture with or related to Cornelius Tower if he's never seen the man before in his life? What's with all of the dreams? Is there someone who has the power to work in dreams or what? How did Connor escape and what was he wearing Headmaster's suit for (or does he have the power to control dreams and just influenced Ian to think he was escaping one way when he left another way)? Why did Cornelius leave his petrified EYE in a secret room? This show is definitely starting to heat up.moreless
  • Like an onion, more layers to the mystery of Tower Prep are revealed in this surprising (and mind screwing) episode.

    From the opening scene to the finale, Dreams managed to answer some of the mysterious of Tower Prep, like its origins (it was founded by an eccentric millionaire with a questionable mental background), but also raises some new ones; What was the true purpose of Tower Prep? What is it being used for now? Is CJ hiding something from the gang? But the real mystery lies near the end of the episode. I won't spoil it, but I'll say it was more plot-twisting than the ending of the Sixth Sense. Can't wait for how the producers answers these questions. ;)moreless

    • Psychology: Our psychological makeup, like our fingerprints, are unique to each one of us. What means one thing to one may mean something different to another. So, in the case of Miss Sato, the yellow elevator door may represent a desire to escape an unpleasant situation. The yellow door may represent the sunshine of freedom, whereas for Mr. Forrest, the yellow doors may represent, let's say, a fear of wetting the bed.
      Gabe: Well, um, how come she gets the sunshine of freedom, and I get... pee?

    • Gabe: Hey, guys, this will help us with our dream analysis.
      Suki: What is it?
      Gabe: It's an old record.
      CJ: What's a record?
      Gabe: Wh-what's a record? You s-serious? Uh, it's uh--it's like a hard copy of a musical download.

    • Suki: Our subconscious is trying to tell us we have unresolved issues with something associated involved with that elevator.
      Gabe: Yeah, but I have unresolved issues with everything. Why single one thing out?

    • Ian: But then there was this weird moment near the end of their talk. Headmaster learned in and whispered something to him.
      Gabe: What did he whisper?
      Ian: I don't know, Gabe. He was whispering.

    • Psychology: "To sleep, perchance to dream." Ah, there's the rub. Referencing the play Hamlet (approx. 1600) by William Shakespeare. In it, Hamlet performs what is typically considered a soliloquy, the famous "to be or not to be" speech of Act Three, Scene One.
