When Allison dreams of a young woman who has had a serious fall, she contacts Det. Lee Scanlon and Deputy Mayor Lynn DiNovi, a close friend. There is little to indicate foul play but subsequent dreams show others also dying in strange circumstances. The focus seems to be adulterated over-the-counter headache medicine, but the question is just who is responsible. Joe meanwhile is convinced that Marie needs glasses but she passes her eye exam with flying colors. He's not sure that it was the eye chart she was reading, however. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


The plot of this episode is slightly reminiscent of the case of Stella Nickell who was sentenced to 90 years in prison for product tampering in May of 1988. Mrs. Nickell allegedly poisoned at least 2 bottles of Excedrin capsules with cyanide. One was given to her husband and the other replaced on the shelf of a store which resulted in the death of Susan Snow. Because of the seemingly random nature of the poisonings, it was first believed to be a contamination of the manufacturer. After this was ruled out, the police began to focus on the significant others of the deceased. See more »
