Lying in her hospital bed, professional dancer Liz Powell has a recurring nightmare where she takes the elevator down to the morgue wand is invited in by a severe looking nurse.

The nightmare is very real to her and the doctor suggests that she try to break the pattern to see if she can them to stop. The next time she has the dream, she travels down to the morgue but the dream goes off as before. She's eventually released from hospital but it's only when she gets to the airport that it all starts to make sense. Written by garykmcd

Listen to Those Dreams
17 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a college friend who missed his plane while in Vietnam. He stopped to buy some candy before he took off and the plane took off without him. He knew he would be in big trouble, even get busted. The plane was shot down before it landed. All aboard were killed. This isn't about dreams, but it was as if there was some force that save him. The woman in this episode is reminded night after night about something over which she has no control. She keeps being invited into room 22. But what does it mean? She gets no explanation or help from the psychologists. As is usually the case in the Twilight Zone, things get resolved.
