This show begins with Earl (Charles Durning) awakening from a horrible dream. In very vivid detail, he sees a plane crash and bodies everywhere. It's SO realistic that he's convinced that it's a premonition but naturally no one believes him. With only one more late night flight scheduled, Earl heads to the airport--determined to do everything he can to prevent the flight from taking off. Naturally they assume he's a nut and he's soon escorted away by the police--presumably to take him to the hospital. However, Earl is REALLY determined and when he sees what appears to be the cause of the crash, he springs into action like a hero.

This is a very tense episode and it's handled very well. Durning is an old pro--and it shows by his performance. Without his excellent acting, the very simple idea might not have worked.
