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. Written by

Did You Know?
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
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
