    In the town of Barda, Wyoming, Jack and Clu fall for a mysterious girl...who later walks right through Fi. Fi believes she is a ghost, but after doing some research finds she is alive and well, and is attending Barda High School. The girl's name is Claire Avner. Fi soon realizes that the girl must be using astral projection...the practice of making your spirit leave your body. Knowing that doing such a thing can be dangerous, Fi finds the girl's number in the phone book and calls her. She sees the girl, who vanishes right before answering the phone back home. Fi is seriously creeped out.



    She goes to see the girl, and tries explaining to her what could happen if she doesn't stop projecting herself. The girl doesn't listen, and leaves her body right there in front of Fi, wandering off.



    Fi drags Jack and Clu to the fair to search for the girl. She sends them into the woods to search for a treehouse that Claire had mentioned earlier, while she goes to look for her astral form. She finds her in the House of Glass, and convinces her she must face all her problems instead of using astral projection to escape them. The girl realizes she's right.



    Meanwhile, Jack and Clu find Claire's body in a treehouse, and almost get it killed after accidentally causing the rotten floor to fall through. In the end, Claire decides to talk with her parents about her problems.





    This was a pretty good episode, but it felt like it was missing something. I'm just not sure what yet. This was actually the second episode, and the first for the new producers and writing team who came in after the pilot, and it shows. However, it's a great start.
