After dreaming about the near crash of a commercial jet, Allison goes into work the next morning to find the pilot of that flight, David Call, sitting in the waiting room. He's there because of the disappearance of his wife, who has been missing for some two weeks. He seems sincere and the police don't think he's a suspect per se, but they haven't ruled him out yet either. As Allison continues to dream, the identity of the killer becomes apparent but she also has a dream of the same flight with a different pilot, only this time it crashes. Will her actions in the case result in David Call not piloting that flight on the fateful day? At home, Allison and Joe have a fundamental disagreement about parenting when Bridgette takes to wearing her new bicycle helmet all the time. Written by garykmcd
