  • When Lucy becomes interested in numerology and astrology, she almost ruins Ricky's chance to star in a new musical. Trying to fix her mistake, Lucy finds herself hosting a seance in the Ricardos' apartment.

    "The Seance" is another fine example of the fine acting and writing that made "I Love Lucy" such a great comedy. Vivian Vance is great in this episode as Madam Mertzola, the medium, and Lucille Ball is classic in her imitation of a spirit (of what turns out to be a cocker spaniel). Jay Novello guest stars as Mr. Meriweather, the producer of the musical in which Ricky wants to be cast. "I Love Lucy" fans should be familiar with Novello, as he also portrays Mr. Beecher and Mario in other episodes of the show. He is one of the best parts of the episode; the scene during which the seance takes place is a classic "I Love Lucy" moment.
