Randy, a teenage neighbor of Johnny Smith, comes home to find his father shot in the head. Escaping from two hired killers who want his own head as well, Randy runs to Johnny Smith's house, with the gunmen hot on his trail. Johnny's visions prevent him from fatal run-ins with the killers, and to see that they have cut phone and power to the house. As the group race to stay one step ahead of the killers who have now broken in, Johnny learns (as has Sheriff Bannerman, who arrives on the scene solo only to get held hostage) that Randy and his father were unwitting witnesses to a mob hit and the men after them are cold-blooded assassins sent by the imprisoned mobster to kill them in retribution for locking him up for life.

The worst episode of the series
10 January 2008 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

In scriptwriting there are many basic rules you must respect to do a good story. One of them it's don't abuse of coincidences. This episode has one after another. I agree that there's something in fiction called poetic license, and it usually take shape like coincidences, but in this episode it's too much.

*Guns that get empty in the necessary second. *A lighter that falls at the feet of a character when he'll need it *A photograph of Walt and J.J. that appears (in a absolutely dark house)just when the killers need to know their relationship. *Wooden doors that can't be open with a gunshot at the lock *Air-condition tubes in a private house that are enough big to let pass an adult (the reason :cause they are old) *A pro-killer that's caught unawares by a ten years old boy's kick (and so hard that he loose his foot and fall down.)

And finally the summit:

* Not just one secret door to let the characters run away from a closed room. When they get caught in the basement with no chances, there's a second secret door to avoid 'em escape in a passage.

Terrible.(And to complete the disastrous episode, John waits till the killer throw down the door and comes in to run away and in a incomprehensible way never has behind him the killer trying to shoot him -even though it's a long corridor).

A sad, shameful, and awful episode that should never been filmed (or written).

Fortunately, The Dead Zone has many other great episodes that let us forget (and forgive) this mistake.
