    Devalos is asked by a senator to run for the D.A.'s office. When Devalos introduces the senator to Allison, she senses something very negative to him. She gets dreams of Senator Garrity from his vietnam experience. He's done something bad in the past and he's done something bad at the present. She finds it really hard to deal with pros and cons of getting sen. garrity imprisoned for murder. It's a really interesting episode, things don't go as usual, but the story itself if good enough for the episode to end in an unresolved fashion. the writers did a good job.moreless
  • Patricia Arquette looks great.

    6.9
    First off, I want to say that Patricia Arquette looks fabulous! I don't know if she has lost some weight, has taken better care of herself, had some work done - or all of the above, but she has never looked better. She was beautiful to begin with, but she really looked great this episode. Okay, now to the episode. I wasn't crazy about it. I was pretty unhappy about the whole "eating a guy so the other guys could live" thing. Sure, maybe that could have really happened, but I didn't tune into Medium for it. I don't enjoy feeling like I am going to vomit when I am watching one of my favorite shows. And that is exactly what I felt like when Allison was watching the Senator eat that meat sandwich. I don't mind the occasional severed body parts here and there, but this was just down right disgusting. It was fairly predictable once it was established that the torso found had a connection to the senator and had a major gambling problem. When the group of now professional guys got together and plotted this dudes death, it occurred to me that they really didn't think it over too much. If LaRoche had exposed them for what had happened in Viet Nam, he would have lost his meal ticket. Better to keep paying him off in small amounts till one of the loan sharks offed him for his debts. Then their hands would be clean. But I guess that wouldn't make for very good television. It gets extremely tiresome that Scanlon and Devalos both doubt Allison when she comes to them with these visions. Her track record should be enough to prove to them that she is not just insane. I wish they would take her a little more seriously. Scanlon can be outright rude about it. Okay, I get it. He's a tough cop... whatever. I completely loved the side story of Bridgette, Joe, and the credit card Company employee!moreless
  • This is more like the Medium that I know and love!

    9.0
    Truthfully, I was getting worried after last week's episode. I really didn't like the direction it was going in. However, this week things seem to be getting back on track. Scanlon's not running away from Allison anymore. Their working chemistry is back. The story line was a bit disturbing and the Senator was scary at the end when he's explaining how he and his comrades have devoted their lives to doing good to honor the soldier they killed and cannabalized while prisoners in Vietnam. I almost wanted to believe him. ick. However, the best part of the episode was Joe tracking down the bill collector because Bridgette wanted to warn the man that his apartment was going to be broken into. I enjoy when the girl have dreams. I hope future shows continue to explore the girls' emerging psychic skills. I'm looking forward to next week's episode with Allison and Ariel.moreless

    Okay, so this isn't my favourite all time episode, but I was strangely fixed to my TV screen for the entire duration of the episode (with the exception of ads). Unlike most episodes which tend to be tied up with a pretty bow, this one didn't. It showed a side to war that many people don't want to know about, or admit, but also the effect is can have on all people involved. Nice to see more of Lee and DeValos.



    The side storyline of Bridgette and the telemarketer was also rather amusing - though it was predictable that it would relax the pressure on the family - which I think was slightly exaggerating how things would work in the real world.moreless

    • Scanlon: (to Allison) Hey, if you want to pursue your Senator Cannibal theory, by all means, feel free. Be sure and let me know if anything breaks.

    • Allison: (trying to convince Joe to honor his promise to call the creditor Mr. Reshmi) I'm not sure that our nine-year-old is really clear on the difference between a white lie and a regular one.
      Joe: I guess I'm calling India.

    • Senator Garrity: People like the word "intuitive." They're comfortable with it. I'm comfortable with it.

    • Joe: (observing Allison's new, dressed-up look) Hubba hubba.
      Allison: A hubba from the hubba. That's good. But it's not too "hubba," right.
      Joe: Why do you ask?

    • Joe: Bridgette, who is Mr. Reshmi?
      Bridgette: He's the credit card man.
      Joe: You're talking to somebody from the credit card company? Give me the phone.

    • Senator Garrity: (in Allison's dream sequence) I'm surprised you haven't figured it out yet. That meat you're enjoying so much, the secret ingredient, is you. We're eating you. Your right leg, to be exact. Look for yourself, you'll see.
