  • Another season is over, And i'm very glad!!

    It's not that I don't still love Ghost Whisperer but this episode proved why Eli (Jamie Kennedy) should not be on this show! The episode was far too Eli centric and i was bored halfway, like literally, he hogs all the spotlight, he was in every single scene in this episode, I expected more and was very disappointed with the ending, I wanted a cliff-hanger like they usually have!! Eli is the most miserable character I've ever watched n a TV show, like does he ever smile?!

    Jamie Kennedy is an awful actor and I certainly hope next season features less Eli and more Mel and Jim otherwise I might end up switching off!moreless

It's deffinatly in my favourite show list! The only thing that I dont like is how Zoey dies but it does add some excitment. I cant wait till next season to see what happens to melinda and her son...or daughter.!moreless
  • Overall a good episode But I don’t think the writers thought it through, there were too many plot holes

    For example according to Melinda the Book of Changes enlists everyone who has died and come back in one way or another, except Andrea never came back in any way neither did Zoe, and why the name of the “step in” introduced on “Leap of Faith” wasn’t on that list, or even Melinda’s name, she died on the field and was brought back by the four kids who survived the accidents on May 11th which brings me to the next mistake, the plane crash occurred on May 11th as stated on “The Prophet” , Andrea died as result of the plane crash, yet in the book they show she died on April 28th , yes “Free Fall” aired on April 28th , but still it looks like they completely forgot the final 2 episodes of season two. And the most discussed mistake, why is Melinda due date on September 25th? if she got pregnant before November that’s a 11 months pregnancy, unless is not Jim’s baby.

    Bright side of the season finale, the baby is a boy, who is the guy that wanted the book so badly and who is he working for? And the last scene with the wedding and all the light spirits watching over them. Can’t wait for next season, let’s hope they don’t introduce more storylines before wrapping all the ones left hanging (Romano, Gabriel, Tom Gordon, The Underground, The Watchers)moreless
  • I think the show may have had its day.

    I think the show may have had its day. This season has gone from bad to worse. The whole Jim possessing Sam was something out of a bad B movie. Everyone is excited about the baby but they are forgetting its Sam and Mel's baby not Jim's. The prof needs to come back as this would give it another level of intellect as I found his input about other cultures interesting. I did like the introduction of another character with the gift who wasn't evil like her brother. Did anyone else notice that this season Ned has aged about 5 years?moreless
  • Another season ended...just leading to another fabulous one

    I totally loved the season finale, just like very episode of GW, but this mistery around the Book of Changes scares me. Or what about Mel&Jim's son, "he will be able to do more". Well I can't imagine what more can come after seeing the dead. However I still think that it was great, it could have contained a bit more JiMel scenes, but the end with the marriage was sweet. I also feel sorry for Zoe for dying so soon and at the first time not even knowing why she had to die...

    All in all I guess this episode goes to my fav episodes.moreless
