Bo is contacted by a Fae who works as a doorman in an apartment building. The humans that live there are losing their minds and he asks for Bo's help to figure out why and stop it. Kenzi hires a Brownie to clean Bo's home and look after their needs, but she takes him for granted against Trick's warnings and things go from good to worse quickly. Lachlan, the new Ash comes between Lauren and Bo, severing their relationship and forbidding them from seeing each other again without his permission. Bo finds herself having nightmares that sap her strength, eventually discovering that her dreams and that of the ill humans are being fed upon by a Mare, a Dark Fae that feeds on the nightmares of others to survive. Bo eventually discovers that the doorman is a Dark Fae called a Sandman, taking advantage of the chaos among the Light Fae and squatting on part of their territory with the Mare, getting Bo involved in order to have the Mare feed on her. Attempting to kill the Mare, she has dreams of an older version of herself and of Dyson that try to keep her in her dreams, but she escapes with the help of a Baku, a Light Fae that can stop the effects of a Mare. Bo ends the threat, the Ash makes an attempt to have Bo work for him, but she refuses his offer, and the Brownie leaves to help the Baku.
The episode title is a nod to the 1931 song "Dream a Little Dream of Me." Since then it has been recorded in over sixty versions. The 1968 solo voice version by Mama Cass, together with The Mamas & The Papas, became one of the most memorable recordings of the song.
