Dr. Stegman's complaints about Dr. Hook's repeated 'unauthorized' tests on nurse Druse's mother, Sally, are ignored by chief of staff Dr. Jesse James; Steg still throws her out as malingerer. A man is brought in, badly wounded after jumping from his roof. Hook can't make sense of Peter Rickman's contradictory paralyzed condition. Putting them on the same room starts common nightmares which cause real, apparently unprovoked damage. The circle convenes again. Sally Druse warns Hook that evil is awakening. Weird things keep happening, in hospital and in jail to multiple murderer Petersen, who is brought in.
