Things become even more complicated after the young woman claims to have met Malachiâ€”Carolynâ€™s former patient whose treatment was cut short when he was brutally murderedâ€”in her dreams. What is the link between the two, and how can Carolyn help a patient who, it seems, does not wish to be cured?
