Okay, seriously 'S.K. Rules'? I know your post is eons old, but you really didn't get the story at all. The two of them die in a plane crash (although never explicitly stated) and the woman is living for eternity in purgatory. Stephen King said; "Hell is repetition", and that's exactly what's happening. She believed she was going to hell, ergo that's where she ended up. She gets the feeling of deja-vu because she's encountered the same events seemingly hundreds of times before.

A bit confused on how the two of them die and she goes back and starts it over again and again and again, I thought deja vu was just seeing the samething over and over again without being killed.

The LOST finale reminded me a lot of this story.

One of my absolute favourites. I wrote a short story in the same pedigree and mighty proud of the way it turned out. I became a student of King after this one.

For me, this is the best story in the collection. I cannot extricate it from my brain. This is one of those stories that, as a writer, makes you think - why do I bother? I can't write anything this good.
