  • Good episode

    Good episode, but I'm disappointed that Allison chose to end her friendship with Lee rather than trying to help him. Something weird is obviously wrong with him.
  • Ghosts galore, Ariel preparing to go off to college and Lee Scanlon going off the tracks and having a fight with Allison. All in a day's work!

    Although this was a good episode, I personally thought that far too much was happening at once which it made it a little difficult for the viewer to process and even tougher to get a grasp on any particular part of the story.

    It all seems fairly normal when Ariel gets a phone call from Melissa Drake, a girl from Texas who is going to be her new room mate. Nothing unusual about that except the fact that Melissa has been dead for eleven years ...

    Meanwhile, Lee Scanlon is haunted by the ghost of his sleazy older brother and, sleep-deprived, he begins to make some very risky and not-so-sensible career decisions which leads to a disciplinary hearing.

    Meanwhile, another slezebag, in the form of an uncle, kidnaps his niece and professes to be deeply in love with her and wants her to put off going to college so they can be together. NOT the world's nicest man by a long shot!

    Allison finds herself unable to assist Lee at his hearing but at least Ariel saves the kidnapped niece after one of her dreams. So all is almost well that ends well. Except maybe for Lee and Allison's friendship.
