Storyline

Clark Kent has a strangely realistic nightmare with him being romantically involved with Lana, Lex discovering his secret, and a girl called Sara Conroy being chased by a weird, red-robed creature called The Traveller. When Clarks wakes up, he learns that was was asleep... for the last 36 hours consecutive hours! Clark finds that Sara has just moved with her uncle and tutor Nicholas Conroy to the house on the next door that belonged to Lana. Intrigued with the situation, he visits Sara with Lana, and Clark sees that the teenage girl has been in coma for the past six years, increasing the mystery. Clark decides the the solution is literally in his dreams. In Metropolis, Lionel demands that Lex take a psychological evaluation prior to increasing his work responsibilities, but for some unknown reason, Lex refuses.

Trivia

To coincide with the release of the CD "In Time: The Best of R.E.M. 1988-2003" on 28 October 2003, the third season episode "Slumber" included only songs by R.E.M.. The album is released on Warner Brothers, the same company that produces this show. It was also a reference to the show's relation to sleep; Chloe makes an offhand reference to the R.E.M. (rapid-eye movement) state of sleep. See more »

Goofs

While there was a close up on Clark while he was asleep, you could see a small cut right above his eye, which is impossible if he can't be hurt. See more »

Great episode with a sleepy feel.
2 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am still yet to find a bad episode of Smallville. I do not know how the writers manage to keep me utterly engrossed for the duration but with the quality of actors in the main roster as well as guest appearances it must sure help the situation.

Katherine Isabelle was outstanding as sleeping girl Sara. She looked so believable with a real unique beauty displayed in her innocence. I will certainly be checking out her back catalogue of roles. Christopher Shyer who plays Sara's uncle also puts in a fantastic yet creepy performance.

As with every episode I felt closer to the characters and the storyline just oozed with good feeling. The sleepy feel of the episode (sort of plodding on rather than moving superhero speed) made for a nice change and got the best out of the actors in difficult roles.
