It's almost a cliche - a protagonist wakes up from a nightmare to immediately sit upright in bed, either screaming, sweating or profusely panting. This is how Thomas wakes from his successive nightmares...
... except each of the awakenings is actually a dream.
This is in fact avoided in the endings where Thomas ACTUALLY wakes up. In "Destroyed Dreams" he just opens his eyes slowly and takes a deep breath, and in "Final Descent" he slowly lifts his head from the desk he fell asleep at. Only "Wayward Dreamer" has the young Thomas sit upright upon waking - another clue that he might not be really awake?
Anyway, I think it's a nice touch.
Discussion of the game should go here. Let's keep the rest of the forum free from spoilers!
