The Dead Zone: Heritage (season premiere)
I worry because Greg Stillson has persistently pursued Sarah too. I am not convinced that she sees him for the villain that we (the audience) and Johnny know him to be. Though, Stillson did tell Johnny this episode that he isn't as bad as Johnny thinks he is...
Having seen Stillson's murderous past, I don't think anything will convince us of that. However, it will be interesting to see if the show tries to sugarcoat Vice President Stillson, particularly with his evil advisor Malcolm Janus dead.
I wondered during this episode if perhaps David Ogden Stiers was leaving the show, because at one point, Johnny's visions led him to believe that Purdy was dead. However, Johnny, even realizing that anything he does to try to change one vision can lead to bad things, warned Walt that now Purdy (rather than Walt) was dead in the vision, and that warning ultimately led to Walt's demise. Or, at least Johnny thinks so.
When Walt got the contents of the envelope from the older woman, he opened it and remarked that John Smith was in for a big surprise. I was wondering what that could be about (I mean, could anything really shock Johnny at this point?), and then I realized what it must be: Look again at the name of the episode. Heritage. I bet we are going to find out that John Smith (and his oh, so laughably generic name) is actually something like John Purcell. Or maybe even John Stillson... wouldn't that be great? Can't you just see it? Johnny's mother lets the Bible salesman in, has an affair, has a child-- and boom! Johnny and Greg are brothers.
This is sheer speculation on my part, but wouldn't that be sort of delicious?
I am pretty sure Nicole de Boer (Sarah) is pregnant in real life (or has just had a child): Her face has the slight puffiness you see in pregnant women that actresses simply can't reproduce with a prosthetic uterus. So, it could be that she and J.J. will disappear for awhile to deal with their grief over Walt's death. I don't know, but it seems plausible.
I was frustrated last season because the episodes seemed to have lost their focus: Johnny's prevention of the apocalypse. They seem to be on track, and as sad as Walt's death is, it certainly provides some great material for the coming season!
