Storyline

Bobby Singer is attacked in Pittsburgh and is found in coma in his hotel room. Meanwhile Sam is upset with Dean's situation, drinking alone in a bar. When Dean arrives in the spot, he discusses with Sam, but they are informed by phone about the condition of Bobby. They head to the hospital where the doctor explains that he does not know the cause of Bobby's coma; therefore he does not know how to treat him. The Winchester brothers discover that Bobby was investigating the African dream root "Silene Capensis", the subject of Dr. Gregg's experiment who mysteriously died after a coma similar to Bobby's. Dean pretends to be a detective and interviews Dr. Gregg's assistant Maya Sanders and his former subject Jeremy Foster that had sleep disorder. Dean decides to call Bela to provide the African root to dream and help Bobby. The brothers drink the yellow tea and help Bobby to return; but the homicide sandman decides to chase them in their dreams. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Jeremy Frost's father's name is given as "Henry David Frost" on the photo copy of his driver's license that Bobby Singer shows Sam & Dean. This appears to be a hybrid between the names of two of the great American poets: Henry David Thoreau and Robert Frost. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series (to this point) the '67 Impala had spotlights mounted to both the driver and passenger sides of the car. In this episode (#3.10) they are clearly missing, assuming a different car was used in this episode. See more »

The Homicide Sandman

Bobby Singer is attacked in Pittsburgh and is found in coma in his hotel room. Meanwhile Sam is upset with Dean's situation, drinking alone in a bar. When Dean arrives in the spot, he discusses with Sam, but they are informed by phone about the condition of Bobby. They head to the hospital where the doctor explains that he does not know the cause of Bobby's coma; therefore he does not know how to treat him. The Winchester brothers discover that Bobby was investigating the African dream root "Silene Capensis", the subject of Dr. Gregg's experiment who mysteriously died after a coma similar to Bobby's. Dean pretends to be a detective and interviews Dr. Gregg's assistant Maya Sanders and his former subject Jeremy Foster that had sleep disorder. Dean decides to call Bela to provide the African root to dream and help Bobby. The brothers drink the yellow tea and help Bobby to return; but the homicide sandman decides to chase them in their dreams.

"Dream a Little Dream of Me" is an episode visibly inspired in "A Nightmare on Elm Street" with the killer capable of entering in the dreams of his victims, and turning them into nightmares. The erotic dream of Sam with Bela is funny and the dream of Dean with the gorgeous Lisa Braeden apparently discloses his dream of raising a family of his own. The confrontation with his demon image seems to have changed his perspective of life. However, the naiveness of the brothers with the tricky Bela is irritating. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Sonhe Comigo" ("Dream with Me")
