Episode Recap

Melinda encounters a ghost named Charlie. Charlie is dressed up as a clown. It is revealed that he is a private investigator who passed away while working undercover as a clown at a birthday party. Charlie was hired by Todd, Sherry's ex-boyfriend. Charlie's job was to locate Sherry.

Sherry had recently won the lotto and kept it a secret. During the investigation, Charlie grew to really care about Sherry. She helped her keep her winnings a secret to ensure that Alex, her current boyfriend, is not into her just for her money.

Out of nowhere, Todd asks Sherry to marry him, which is thrilling for her. She's wanted to marry him for many years now, but left him because she thought he was after her money. It turns out that Todd was not after her money at all, and it was Alex that was. Todd truly wanted to be with her. Once the truth is uncovered and Sherry is with Todd, Charlie can cross over.
