Netflix has given way to a clear display of the spreading sickness in The Sandman

The official page of Netflix Geeked has posted an extended scene from the first episode of The Sandman. The post addressed fans for showing their love towards the show so they bestowed a gift of an expunged scene from the “Sleep of the Just” episode. The clip began with a different video as they might have edited and replaced it with Tom Sturridge’s voice for better impact on viewers.

The video took fans to a decade after the imprisonment of Dream where Burgess is hosting a party. And Alex is reading the newspaper about how “sleeping sickness” is still ravaging the world. However, nobody knew that the king of Dreams was secretly locked in the dungeons of The Order of Ancient Mysteries.

Hearing these words from the unworthy son’s mouth he dismisses him to go and send off the people waiting outside. Check out the deleted scene pinned below:

This scene gives a clear account of the events that Roderick has not only imprisoned an Endless but he was the killer of all those people who died from that disease. Because he knew that Dream’s captive resulted in people dying as they never woke up from the last dream.

Since Morpheus is not there to manage the dreams and nightmares of the waking world. Whereas Magus’s wickedness has not reduced an inch as he is only interested in making money. Like, one of his followers said that people are lined up in front of his mansion to see the magical tools he kept on display.
