[S1E1] Sleep Of The Just


[S1E1] Sleep Of The Just

We cut back to the man, introduced as Dr. Hathaway, arriving at a grand house and meeting Alex and his father Roderick. Roderick and the doctor have both lost sons, and the wounds are still deep. Their aim is to capture death and compel them into bringing their sons back. Whilst Morpheus is on his mission in the waking world, he is accidentally captured by their cult, which causes chaos. Sleeping sickness takes over, with many people left continuously sleeping or begging for sleep. This shift has a huge effect on the world, without them realizing it.

Finally, one of the guards falls asleep, as we were warned, and Morpheus goes into his dream and manipulates the guard to shoot the glass cage, freeing him. In a hue of blue swirling light, he is lifted into the light.

In the closing ten minutes of the episode, Morpheus comes to visit Alex, giving him the gift of eternal sleep. The torture of sleeping and sleepless nights has come to end, and The Corinthian feels the shift.

Berlin, Germany, the Corinthian had just killed a man when he was apprehended by Dream, who scolded him for killing mortals for pleasure in the waking realm. Corinthian questioned why they should confine their talents to humanity's sleeping mind when they were unstoppable in the waking realm. He pleaded with Dream to spare, though Dream could not allow his insubordinance to go unchecked and approached with a glowing red ruby to return Corinthian to the Dreaming. However, he was summoned away before he could fulfill his duty.

London, England, unbeknownst to Roderick, in trapping Dream, he had caused immeasurable damages to the Dreaming, as well as the walking realm. The following morning, there were sleepers who did not awaken. "The sleepy sickness," as they called it, affected nearly one million men, women, and children in every city, village, and town in the world.

Roderick received an unexpected visit from the Corinthian, who informed Magus that he didn't capture Death, rather it was Dream, who was locked away in his cellar. And these were only two of the Endless; Desire, Destiny, Despair to name a few others. Corinthian explained that Dream's ruby, pouch, and helm could lend the owner an aspect of his power, such as extending their life span and allowing them to manipulate others. Corinthian simply sought to ensure that Dream never escaped, explaining that the binding circle wouldn't be enough, and advised Roderick to construct a spear of glass inside the circle to contain Dream's physical manifestation. Additionally, no one could be allowed to fall asleep in his presence, as he could escape through their dreams. Roderick questioned why Corinthian was so willing to help him, to which Corinthian explained that Dream was his maker and that he could take everything back should he ever get free. As one final warning, The Corinthian alerted Roderick that he was being watched by Dream's raven Jessamy.

1926, London, England, Dream's imprisonment only furthered the world's misfortune; ravaged by the disease named encephalitis lethargica, some begged for sleep that would not come, others lived as perpetual sleep walkers, whilst most slept without waking.

With the protection seal broken, Dream forced one of the guards to fall asleep, allowing him to gain access to the guard's mind and manipulate him into shooting the sphere, shattering the glass, thus releasing Dream. The guards drew their weapons and instructed him to open his hands. He complied and blew a handful of sand into both of their faces, rendering them both unconscious.

The Corinthian quickly realized that Dream was free and out of his cage, though he himself was only just getting started and was still intent of reshaping the world in his image, after having cut out the eyes of his latest victim.

Brittany: The Magus ceremony was almost beat for beat exactly how I thought it would play out. It is one of those scenes where it could go one of two ways: super creepy and chilling, or a bunch of people standing around wearing matching robes trying to sell you on their rung of the pyramid scheme. Because the comic jumps right into the middle of this, moments before the summoning begins. You need to execute fast and convincingly. Having that opening bit of being with Hathaway tangentially in the Dreaming at least gave us this person who sees some form of peace in sleep just before everything is about to go terribly for the rest of the dreamers of the world.

Brittany: Even for one of the longer episodes of the season, the building of this introduction had a lot of great moments that were demonstrated as panels with time stamps in the comic. The consequences that were not apparent to most of the individuals directly involved with the capture. Those who would not wake, those who were trapped sleepwalking, those vignettes and the way that we saw the passage of time were also some stylistic nods to the original that were nice to see.

When Alex suggests that they should release him, The "Magus" responds about as well as you'd expect, and orders his son outside to speak to the crowd that's gathered on their doorstep.
