PostSubject: Ghost Whisperer Thu Jan 29, 2009 7:02 am




Plot:

Ghost Whisperer is an episodic series that follows the life of Melinda Gordon, a young woman who has the ability to see and communicate with the dead. Each episode deals with one or more ghosts seeking Melinda's help in relaying a message or completing a task that will put the spirit to rest, and allow them to "cross over" into The Light, a metaphor presented by the show as its conception of Heaven. Crossing over is when a spirit leaves earth and goes to heaven.

Despite the episodic structure of the show, plot lines that span two or three episodes (normally during season openers and finishers) develop and progress throughout the rest of the season. The first season arc introduced the show's first antagonist, Romano, a negative entity in a black hat, who attempted to do the exact opposite of Melinda and gather earthbound souls and bring them to the Dark Side. The story climaxed in the season finale when a plane crashed in Grandview, and Melinda and Romano both attempted to sway the souls to the Light, and staying on earth, respectively. Her best friend Andrea Moreno was killed in the plane crash and, in a story that would carry over to the second season, was being swayed by Romano to stay earthbound.

In the second season, two new characters (Delia Banks and Professor Rick Payne) are introduced, both of whom, by season's end, come to learn of Melinda's power and become survivors that ghosts want messages passed to through Melinda. The second season arc revolves around the thinning "veil" between the living and the dead, evident in certain situations in second season episodes. By the end of the season, a second Ghost Whisperer was introduced. His arrival in Grandview sets the final events of a disastrous prophecy in motion, and the strengthening of the dark side over the Light.

The beginning of each episode normally revolves around Melinda first encountering the ghost(s) that will be crossed over in the episode. In their normally brief appearances, Melinda collects clues she later researches. After gaining a significant piece of information that drives the episode's plot further, the ghost(s) normally open up to her, and tell her how it is she can help them find peace. Often, the messages the ghosts want Melinda to pass are confusing and as a result, she is normally met with questions and scepticism by those she is trying to give the message to the families, friends and lovers of the ghosts. By the end of each episode, Melinda is usually able to complete her task and cross over the ghost(s) from the respective episode.


Characters:

* Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt): Melinda has the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. She moved to Grandview after she married Jim Clancy, a paramedic who knows of her ability. She had always been able to speak with the dead, or "earthbound spirits" as her grandmother (with whom she shared this ability) called them. Her mother, Beth Gordon, possesses the same gift, although she denies it.

* Jim Clancy/Sam (David Conrad): is Melinda's husband. Jim and Melinda get married at the very start of the first season, as well as move to Grandview. Jim is a firefighter, and the two meet as he rescues her from her burning apartment complex. Jim learns of Melinda's unique abilities of being able to communicate with ghosts at the start of the series; he helps her as much as he can, though Melinda's good friend Andrea Moreno provides most of the aid until her death at the end of the first season. It is revealed in the pilot episode that Jim has witnessed his older brother, Dan, die while Dan was in college. After having seen Dan die and being unable to save him, Jim decides to become a paramedic. After Melinda's near death experience during the season two finale, "The Gathering," Jim becomes worried about what else could happen to Melinda due to the ghosts. Jim also helps try to find information about Melinda's father, Tom Gordon, who might or might not be dead, as well as try to find any information about Melinda's brother. In "Haunted Hero," Jim and Melinda welcome Matt, a returning soldier from Iraq, back to Grandview. When Matt becomes so fully paranoid from being haunted by his dead comrades and from post-traumatic stress disorder, Jim confronts Matt in the town square and talks Matt out of trying to kill himself. Jim delivers some of his convincing argument with Matt's gun pointed at him. In "Weight Of What Was," Gabriel returns to Grandview and Jim throws him away, though, not before Gabriel reveals that he is Melinda's half-brother. Jim, Rick, and Delia go in search of Melinda, who is trapped in the remains of old Grandview, now buried under present-day Grandview. Tessa, the ghost of Melinda's ancestor from her mother's side who was also a Ghost Whisperer, helps them find Melinda by communicating with Delia and Jim. Jim also begins thinking of moving out of Grandview while attending Medical School; at first, Melinda does not like the idea, but she later agrees to it. In "Deadbeat Dads," he admits that he would like to have children some day. Early in the fourth season, Jim is shot and flatlined in the episode "Imaginary Friends & Enemies"; Melinda subsequently wakes up and sees his ghost. Jim is eventually revealed to have died, but he refuses to cross over. He eventually enters the body of a recently deceased man named Sam; when Jim/Sam wakes up, he has no idea who Melinda is, or anything that has happened to either the Jim or Sam part of him. Later on, however, fragmented memories of both individuals begin to surface.

* Andrea Moreno (Aisha Tyler): had once worked in New York, for the FBI, until her job changed. She would move to Grandview and obtain a job working at "The Same As It Never Was", an antique store that is owned by Melinda. Andrea was a tall and single woman up until her death. She was played by Aisha Tyler, and was part of the main cast during season one. Andrea becomes Melinda's best friend while working with her. Melinda even comes to trust Andrea enough to tell her about her gift of being able to communicate with earthbound spirits, or ghosts. Andrea becomes essential to the store and Melinda, because of the very fact that she knows about Melinda's gift. Such as, whenever Melinda has to run off and help a ghost, Andrea is left to keep the store. Andrea also helps Melinda with difficult cross overs removing some of the stress from Melinda's husband, Jim. In "The One" a plane crashes and Andrea notices Melinda is hiding something. She believes that her brother Mitch had died during the plane crash and that Melinda is seeing his ghost.At the end of season one it was revealed that it was Andrea who had died during the crash and not Mitch. While Andrea was not on the plane she died because her car had been on the path that the plane had crashed on. Romano attempts to prevent Andrea from crossing over into the Light, and instead to join him on the Dark Side. Melinda would not allow such a horrific occurrence to happen to her friend and so she sets out to stop Romano and warn Andrea. With the help of an occult professor at Rockland University, Rick Payne, Melinda is able to help Andrea find peace and cross over into the Light. Andrea is later mentioned in "Delia's First Ghost" and "The Prophet". Also, while having been successfully crossed over into the Light for over a year, two ghosts taunt Melinda by calling her Andrea during "Bad Blood".

* Delia Banks (Camryn Manheim): She and her teenage son, Ned, lost their husband and father Charlie three years prior to their appearance on the show. Delia became a real estate agent after Charlie's death. Delia meets Melinda Gordon after Melinda calls Delia about Ned having tried to shoplift from Melinda's antique store. Delia tells Melinda about how stressful her job as a real estate agent is, so Melinda offers her a job to help work at the antique store, which Delia accepts. They begin a friendship, though Delia does not know about Melinda's gift at first. In the episode "Delia's First Ghost" Melinda has to tell Delia about her gift because Charlie's spirit is haunting her. At first Delia calls Melinda crazy, admitting that she had seen Melinda talking to herself and was worried. Delia even goes as far as to tell Melinda not to expect her at work again. By the end of the episode Delia learns, with Melinda's help, that Charlie is only haunting her because he wants her to be safe. While still a little skeptical of Melinda's gift, Delia tells her that she will open the shop the next morning. Delia remains skeptical concerning Melinda's gift in season three, but discusses the various ghosts that Melinda encounters to help Melinda with them. When Melinda was stalked by a lawyer, Shane, he tampered with Ned's records because Delia was trying to get him into private school. Nevertheless, when Shane was caught Ned's records were untarnished and Ned got in. In episode 5, "Weight of What Was" Delia travels along with Jim and Rick into a series of underground tunnels and alleyways from a much older Grandview to find Melinda. With the help of a ghost named Tessa helping Delia and Jim they manage to find Melinda and get her to safety. In "Bad Blood", Delia's need to find a rational explanation for every situation, including ones involving ghosts, is brought up. Delia tells Melinda that she will try to accept the notion of ghosts more.

Afterlife in Ghost Whisperer

There are two places in afterlife, when the ghosts "cross over": The Light and the Dark Side. These two places are one of the main points of the show.

The Light

When Melinda helps ghosts cross over, they see a bright light. The Light is invisible to viewers and shown only a few times such as in episodes The Vanishing, The One, Giving up the Ghost (briefly) and The Gathering. Almost all the spirits Melinda helps in the show cross over into the light.

The Dark Side

Not all spirits cross over into the Light. Some cross over to the dark side. Spirits who are trapped in this Limbo are exposed to hate and anger.

However, some ghosts remain earthbound, whether because of an evil force, or unfinished business. Some do not even know they are dead. These spirits can reside above the surface (such as ghosts that haunt people) or in The Underneath (where evil spirits stay

Wuuyy!! Hindi naman talaga siya totally nakakatakot... Drama yan eh... sobrah... as in maraming episodes rito naka imprint sa utak ko... like yung episode ng 5 year old boy sa train rails... palagi siya andoon...

Tapos ng kausapin ni J. Love sabi niya, doon daw siya iniwan ng Mommy niya, kaya doon siya babalikan...

Naaksidente sa loob ng kotse na na stuck sa rails ang kinamatay ng bata... Parang clueless yung bata at hindi niya maintindihan kung ano ba ang patay at buhay...

Napaiyak ako rito kasi hinabol nila yung daddy nung bata... papatayin sana nung daddy nung bata yung nagbenta sa kanila ng kotseng palyado, pero nagsalita yung bata thru j. love... lahat ng key words of comfort na madalas ginagamit nung Tatay sa bata pag upset yung bata, ginamit naman nung anak sa Tatay niya...

Iyak ako ng iyak doon... Sad Imagine, he's only five.

Me comedy rin... meron doon scene na bestfriend si J. Love... nagtataka yung bata kung bat di siya kita,,, sabi na lang ni J. Love, bulag kasi yung bestfriend niya! lol!

nanalo nga ng best young actor yung batang yun sa emmy (yata) ... I think. Because of that episode sa season 1 tapos palaging Best actrees si j. love rito...

Maganda yan sis... highly recommended... can't get enough of the episodes grabe...

ayaw ko din ng inaabangan ito sa TV.... mas like ko din ung marathon... hehehe Laughing

nakakabitin nga... kapag sa TV lng...

i love ung episode nung unti-unti ng nalalaman ni Melinda ung tunay niyang pagkatao...

napa-iyak ako dun nung malaman niya kung sino talaga ung tunay niyang ama... and he called him out "dad' or "daddy" habang sinasakal siya nung kinilala niyang ama...

There was an episode kung saan nakilala ata nila ung soul ng magiging anak nila... not sure if I understand that episode correctly....
