Mac and Pete present a Phoenix foundation invention to a school for the deaf/mute: it converts sounds into waves to feel. The teacher Carrie Linden has strange, scary, symbolic dreams involving lightening, a Moor on a horse, a steel skeleton, a limousine and Mac's dead. A U.S. Army jeep is robbed of secret Moloch missile warheads by a fake sheriff and his deputies in South Carolina, they travel far to steal from an exhibition another part of the rocket.

During Carrie's dream sequence of Mac being run down by the "phantom car of death", a very brief clip of an approaching forklift that's just about to "ram the camera" is seen, interspersed with the "speeding phantom car" footage (both dreamed images show a "killer vehicle" just on the point of striking its quarry). This seemingly-unrelated "additional flash of premonition" correctly predicts one of the events yet to come in Mac's life, and is shown in the subsequent MacGyver episode "Partners", where Murdoc uses the junkyard's huge forklift to crush the taxicab that Mac and Pete are inside of, prior to his loading it onto his box-trailer. A pity that Carrie didn't think to tell Mac about this additional "flash from the future", also, or Mac might have been forewarned of his and Pete's impending doom when he went to the junkyard to meet Pete.

In Carrie's dream, she and Mac are fleeing the "phantom car" that is approaching them along the flat level gravelly shore of the lake, yet when Mac throws Carrie aside to avoid the car, she lands among the grass and rocks of the meadow that's a lot farther up the bank from the lake, near the pit with the "steel skeleton".
