  • A police officer is mistaken for being an abusive cop. Melinda at first thinks a young boy ghost had been killed by the cop, but his death was an accident.

    As episodes go, this one was fairly well written and performed. My biggest problem, however was the shameless use of product placement with an internal commercial for a new SUV, the Arcadia. I found it offensive and a pointless part of the total storyline. It's only purpose was to plug the car and added nothing to the script. I generally really hate commercials and usually mute them. As producer of the show, Jennifer Love Hewitt, I believe, sold out the quality of the show by allowing her sponsors to dictate what gets put into her show. She obviously made a bunch of money for doing so. Either way Jennifer, I love your show, But please don't ever do that again.
