Reverend Purdy pays Johnny a visit and persuades the troubled psychic that it is his destiny to help people with his visions and that he should not run and hide. Sarah becomes more uncomfortable and slightly jealous over Johnny's blossoming romance with Dana Bright, leading her to question her feelings towards him. Meanwhile, Greg Stillson, an ambitious and unscrupulous politician, arrives in town as part of his campaign for the U.S. Congress. Stillson's background story reveals that he will do ANYTHING to get what he wants, including lie, cheat, steal, blackmail, seduce, and possibly murder. Stillson's and Johnny's paths cross when Reverend Purdy joins Stillson's campaign as an advisor. When Johnny shakes Stillson's hand, he has a horrific vision of a nuclear Armageddon.
