  • Dick Hallorann Says

    (#1) Dick Hallorann Says "Ka Is A Wheel"

    During Dan's last conversation with Dick Hallorann he's convinced by his former Shine mentor that he needs to pass along what he knows to Abra. "Everything comes back around," Hallorann tells Dan, "Ka is a Wheel." The idea of life being cyclical is present in quite a few Stephen King tales but the phrase "Ka is a Wheel" is ripped straight from The Dark Tower series. Ka is essentially Mid-World speak for destiny or fate, and Roland can be heard muttering "Ka is a Wheel" to his gunslingers throughout the eight book series. 

  • The Stand Gets A Shout-Out on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#2) The Stand Gets A Shout-Out

    At the end of the movie Abra has a talk with Dan's ghost. She apologizing for getting him killed and wonders if maybe she did the wrong thing in confronting Rose because of how many people died or got hurt. Dan says there are always going to be bad people like Rose in the world, but there also need to be people like Abra – "people who stand." This is most closely a reference to King's post-apocalyptic classic The Stand, which is all about people rising to face a greater evil.

    One of the book's most famous lines reads, "The place where you made your stand never mattered. Only that you were there...and still on your feet."

  • Dan Is Dressed Like Jack on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#3) Dan Is Dressed Like Jack

    It's hard to consider anything that happens in the last 45 minutes of Doctor Sleep to be Easter Eggs when Dan is going down memory lane in the Overlook, but this one might have snuck by some folks. When Dan has a conversation with his father at the bar, he happens to be dressed nearly identically to the way Jack was when he sat at the same bar and had a chat with the ghostly Lloyd in The Shining.

  • Rose Gets De-Gloved on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#4) Rose Gets De-Gloved

    When Rose first finds Abra, she sneaks into her mind to try to learn more about her. Unfortunately for her, Abra has a massive amount of Shine and she catches the vampire in the act. The girl traps Rose's hand in a metal drawer and in freeing herself she nearly tears all the flesh off her hand. A similar hand "de-gloving" takes place in Gerald's Game when Jessie manages to get out of her handcuffs by shedding the skin from her hand. Both the Doctor Sleep and Gerald's Game film adaptations were directed by Mike Flanagan.

  • Dan Travels On A Tet Transit Bus on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#5) Dan Travels On A Tet Transit Bus

    After a few rough nights sleeping on the streets, Dan decides to head north. He gets on a bus and hops off in New Hampshire. When he leaves the vehicle you can see writing on its side denoting it's part of Tet Transit. This is a subtle reference to the Tet Corporation from The Dark Tower series. In the books, Roland Deschain and his fellow gunslingers travel to Earth to help a group of people set up a company to protect that world's version of the Dark Tower from the Crimson King and his own evil entity the Sombra Corporation.

    In order to become as much a financial powerhouse as Sombra, Roland gives his Earthly allies investment advice from the future (i.e. invest in Microsoft) and tells them to get into a number of ventures. Apparently one of them was bus travel.

  • Bradley Trevor's Baseball Number Is 19 on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#6) Bradley Trevor's Baseball Number Is 19

    The number 19 is incredibly powerful in Stephen King's stories, showing up in major and minor ways in nearly all his works. Bradley Trevor's – the boy the True Knot kills that Abra witnesses – baseball number just happens to be 19. King also wrote a novella called Blockade Billy about a similarly talented baseball player and Billy's number was also 19.

  • Lamerk Industries Owns The Construction Site on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#7) Lamerk Industries Owns The Construction Site

    After the True Knot kidnap Bradley Trevor, they take him to a construction site to perform the ritual of taking the boy's steam. When Dan and Billy arrive later to find the boy's body buried there we see that the construction site is owned by Lamerk Industries. Lamerk is another megacorporation in alliance with the Sombra Corporation, North Central Positronics and the Crimson King fighting against Roland, his ka-tet of gunslingers, and the Tet Corporation for control of the Dark Tower.

  • Underhill Pops Up On A T-Shirt on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#8) Underhill Pops Up On A T-Shirt

    Many Stephen King adaptations hide Easter eggs on the shirts of their characters and Doctor Sleep is no different. One of the members of the True Knot wears a shirt with the last name Underhill on it. There are a few characters in King canon with that name but most famous might be Owen Underhill. Owen is one of the central characters in King's 2001 novel Dreamcatcher – an army soldier who ends up going rogue after he learns about Kurtz's plans. He's played in the Dreamcatcher film by Tom Sizemore.

  • Danny Lloyd Appears At The Baseball Game on Random Easter Egg In 'Doctor Sleep'

    (#9) Danny Lloyd Appears At The Baseball Game

    Before Bradley Trevor is abducted by the True Knot, we see him at a baseball game and how he uses his shine to anticipate pitches. One spectator comments that it's like he knows what the pitcher is going to throw before it happens. This is Danny Lloyd who played Danny Torrance in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.
