  • Shockingly revealing

    From the minute the team takes on the case of a child baring the mark of the sacrificial lamb, you get the feeling something's wrong with Nick. It's normal for him to be sceptical about paranormal causes but this time he's angry up to the point where the others are wondering what's up with him. He seems certain the father abuses the boy.



    Even when Rachel witnesses a strange attack in the hospital on the boy he's reluctant to agree on a ghost causing this. Later he tells Derek why. His father Jonathan and Derek had been colleagues and friends but nobody knew what a mean drunk his father was and that he used to beat up Nick and his mother. Derek never had any idea and consoles the young man.



    Later on it's revealed that the ghost attacking the boy is the deceased son of the father, given up for adoption to an abusive family and wants to revenge by beating up his halfbrother. In the end the father sacrifices himself to save his still alive son.moreless
