  • Allison has recurring dreams where she herself murdering a man.

    Another classic. Allison thinks she's murdered a man in cold blood. Joe thinks she's crazy. Allison is hysterical. Well this was another one of those Allison possessed or acting out the life of another person. Last week it was the kid building the bomb, this week she's possessed by the body of a Latina woman. But is she the Latina woman really a murderer? What about Allison will she go to jail.

    Last week's episode was entertaining but fairly predictable. Halfway in that episode there isn't that many twists. Here the plot is more complicated. It's not just a case of murder but a case involving somethimg bigger with more lives at stake. There were a couple of funny scenes like Allison calmly holding the chopped hand of a corpse. The side story with Ariel learning to drive (it looks like the episodes are out of order since Ariel was aleady driving last week) was ok. Joe's constant critique of her driving seemed to be more driven by his insecurity that Ariel is flexing her independent muscle which in this case is driving a car.

    Eventually everything worked out but I liked it because it was another episode where I couldn't tell where things were going till the end.moreless
  • Allison shares her body with the spirit of a girl that has just being killed, and that makes her think she has killed several people.

    I loves this ep, Cecilia Suarez!!! a great mexican actress, she has previusly worked on mexican soap operas and the hit HBO mexican seires Capadocia a series that tells the story of a jail for wemen in mexico city, you all should watch it it would give you a good perspective on how really mexico is. It was a great episode were we dont know what do the dreams mean, and I actually tougth for a minute that Allison had killed all the people. I liked the daugther father moment and how Ariel and the girls are more aware of what momy and they can do.moreless
  • Allison believes she murdered someone...

    Allison finds herself in a weird situation after waking up in a dark alley and she doesn't remember what happened to her. Something really unusual is going on as she keeps having dreams where she is involved in a hit and run, a guy is dead and later on the body of a woman is found. Allison is clueless about the answers to all of her questions.

    Six hours of her life have been taken away. It turns later on that Maria (the woman that was killed) worked for a company that was involved with human trafficking meaning that immigrants were sent to the U.S.

    Eighteen people were supposed to die but thanks to Allison, the case was solved.

    Not a great Medium episode, but all in all it was OK...It was a step back from last week episodemoreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: The letter Alison opens in the beginning of the episode, which reads "1927 Hennepin," is different from the letter shown later on in the episode. In the first letter "Hennepin" is under the numbers 1927, and the 7 is not crossed, but in the second letter "Hennepin" is on the right side of the numbers 1927, and the 7 is crossed.

    • In this episode Ariel is shown driving for what is clearly her first time, but in the previous episode "Things to Do in Phoenix When You're Dead" she was shown driving to school, with her father in the passenger seat.

    • Joe: I'm afraid bandage-wise, all we have in the house is SpongeBob.
