Steed relives a nightmare - Emma sees daylight
When a delegation arrives at a crucial European conference, the key attendant inexplicably turns around and runs away in fear. When he is later killed in the automobile accident that he previously foresaw, his successor also begins to exhibit similar behaviour, prompting Steed and Mrs. Peel to investigate. They discover that someone is manipulating the dreams of the British delegates in order to undermine their confidence, and therefore disrupt the talks. But can Steed and Mrs. Peel find the culprits and put an end their scheme before all the delegates fly home..?
