Other Information (Trivia, Fun Facts, etc):
Steinbecks' "Of Mice and Men" is a novel following two men, George and Lennie, during the Great Depression trying to find work. Although, they were not twins, George and Lennie, share some similarities to the characters used in The Dead Zone episode. Both George characters had dreams. Both Lennie characters had dreams also, but those of which contained George right beside him. In Of Mice and Men, Lennie is mentally impaired, but is very strong, unlike the Lennie in The Dead Zone.
Lenny's confession would never hold up in court because of the way it was obtained.
The twins plan is flawed. Johnny could have easily seen their hoax, it was just luck that he only saw the "murder." It's as if the twins planned which particular visions Johnny got of them, but how would they be able to do that?
You can see one of the Todd twins move noticeably when he's supposedly "frozen" in Johnny's vision at the mask store.
