The Good Dream is the sixth episode of the third season, and the 18th episode overall, of Netflix's original series, Castlevania.

Synopsis

Lenore continues to spend time with Hector, slowly earning his trust. Saint Germain experiences a telling nightmare about the Infinite Corridor.

Plot

Carmilla's Castle

Lenore visits Hector at his cell. The latter now has clothes and, according to Lenore, looks almost human. Perfect to go on a walk, but before Hector can leave his cell, he must wear a collar, which he reluctantly agrees to.

In the castle's courtyard, the pair are enjoying their stroll despite the cold and lack of sunlight. One of their conversations leads to Carmilla's treatment of Hector during the war. And although Hector is still resentful, he must admit that Carmilla's intentions were not to kill him. Carmilla might have a temper, but she's logical. She never lets it run away with her to the point of condemning the entire human race to death, unlike Dracula. Moreover, Hector is still alive because he listened to Carmilla and saved him from his former master's foolish plans.

Nearby, Striga and Carmilla are listening in to the duo's conversation. Striga disagrees with Carmilla's treatment of Hector; however, she points out that if she hadn't broken him, it would be impossible for Lenore to build him up. But even if Lenore convinces Hector to make the night creatures, there's still the issue where they will get fresh bodies without reducing their feeding stock to nothing.

Lenore brings Hector back inside, but instead of leading him to his cell, she brings him to a new one. His new prison quarter has a sheet and a pillow. But most importantly, a desk with a book about vampire magic. Slowly but surely, Hector begins to fall for Lenore's charms.

Trevor and Sypha are in bed together, discussing Saint Germain. Even though Trevor doesn't trust him, he admits that his first impression of the aristocrat was wrong. Saint Germain is a sad but confident man who desperately needs a friend. The duo decide to help Saint Germain in his quest. Underneath their window, a monk edges an ominous symbol on the wall.

Meanwhile, Saint Germain is having a terrible nightmare. The aristocrat is falling in an endless pit with vibrant colors and lightning splashing all around him. He lands on the ground and a high-pitched sound covers the dimension he's in, when suddenly, the savanna grasslands appear before him, as well as a giant mechanical creature. As quickly as it came, it vanishes. More dimensions start to pop up. Images of space ships and the Australian outback come into vision. Another aspect opens up with a woman standing at the center. Saint Germain stretches out his hand for the woman to take. However, she denies it and throws him a crystal instead. Saint Germain wakes up from his nightmare and starts to write in his diary.

Somewhere outside of Genoa

Isaac is sitting near a campfire surrounded by night creatures. He wants to speak with the creature who can talk well, the one with the eyes, the one he made in Genoa, FlysEyes. Isaac wants to know if the creature remembers his life before FlysEyes went to Hell. He does. He was a scholar, a philosopher from Athens, during the time the empire ruled the country. However, the Christians ruled philosophy to be a crime. To be a philosopher was a sin. And as such, FlysEyes was hunted. But that isn't why he was in Hell. He lied for his life in a church before a judge. He gave up others so that he may live. He became a sinner, and they killed him anyway. During his time in Hell, FlysEyes learned something about sin. He learned to like it. A look of remorse appears to form on Isaac's face.

Quotes

Saint Germain: Never wanting to sleep. Not until I find you. Not until I live in the good dream again. Not until you're back.
FlysEyes: Yet here I am, back on the surface of the Earth... strong and free, in a world where thinking is considered something that should be tortured and murdered. Thank you for my second life.
