The television show’s Season 2, Episode 9 has a number of important developments. As his wife, Paula, suffers a terrible death in which her body cracks open, Reggie, the main character, calls out for assistance. Reggie says that Paula had been warning that nobody in the town is free while she was sleeping. Everyone in the town, including those living in Colony House, receives a warning from Sheriff Boyd not to sleep that night.
Reggie panics at Colony House because of his grief, worried that others would nod off and lose their lives as his wife did. He is segregated to protect others from harm. Ellis is concerned about Fatima, his pregnant partner, who is unable to sleep. Ellis is reassured by Kristi (Chloe Van Landschoot), who has medical training, that Fatima will be OK.
Mari, Kristi’s lover, develops physical and emotional problems as a result of her drug addiction withdrawal symptoms. Mari’s conduct is managed by Kristi using straps on the bed. Mari starts to imagine huge cicadas attacking her, but Kristi is not there to see it. Concerns regarding Mari’s hallucinations are raised when she eventually passes out.
Boyd gives his daughter Julie the order to collect their family and spend the night awake. Together with other people, including Tian Chen, Victor, and Jade, they move into Kenny’s home. Jade and Tabitha talk about their discoveries, which include Victor’s early paintings and Tabitha’s reoccurring dreams about a tower. They assume that the kids they observe might need their assistance. Julie’s little brother, Ethan, becomes frightened and loses trust in Cromenockle, his favorite fairy tale character, fearing for their lives. Ethan is still afraid despite their efforts to distract him.
In regards to Sara and Kenny (Ricky He), Kenny walks with Sara to keep her from dozing off. Sara explains her hypothesis that the town’s cicadas are actually the manifestation of the dead residents’ nightmares. When Kenny accuses Sara of causing his father’s death, their conversation becomes hostile, leading Sara to think about committing suicide. Kenny steps in and prevents her from firing the gun.
Boyd runs upon Jim Matthews (Eion Bailey) and Donna (Elizabeth Saunders), who are being held as ransom by Randall. They spend the night in an RV that has wrecked. When monsters come close to the RV, Boyd muses deploying bile-tipped bullets. Strange music begins to play, and the bullets fail to hit their target. Boyd momentarily glimpses his departed wife Abby before Donna’s calls bring him back to the present. Although it’s not obvious how they got the vehicle started without the keys, they manage to go away in it.
Randall escapes into the woods, where he is eventually overpowered by cicadas after being hunted by creatures. Elgin (Nathan D. Simmons) thinks back to a dream he had while riding the bus, in which a young child repeated a rhyme about putting an end to the music to stop the monsters. It is made clear that this rhyme, which links the experiences of numerous characters, is an old nursery rhyme.
