Time of Your Death

The Ghost Whisperer: Pilot

Oh, and what have we here? It's night, Melinwitt is in bed, and there's a hollow knocking coming from the bowels of her unfinished house. She jerks awake and we're -- upside down? Is she now Alice in Ghostland and about to meet a dead rabbit with a wonky pocket watch? I don't understand. So, Melinwitt leaves her bedroom, walking on the floor (the ceiling to us) and all is relatively normal. I mean, they just tipped the camera around. Next scene, she walks through a door and is now actually walking on the ceiling. Between the hanging lights. As if it were the floor. Oh, and she's also back to being the kid in the opening and the camera is making her do stutter-steps. Man, if I had her calling, I'd be taking my anti-emetic vertigo medicine every two hours. Mini Melinwitt looks at her hands. So we look at her hands. Then we look back at Mini Melinwitt to find that it's Melinwitt Regular, now with more breastages. Melinwitt saunters down the ceiling of the hallway, clad in an uncomfortable-looking white satin peignoir that no one but Alexis Morrell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan would ever think of sleeping in, and heads toward the knocking. She opens a door and finds Paul Adams in all his dead-faced glory standing there. There's a waterfall in the background. "Who told you I could help you?" Melinwitt demands in loud, high, breathless tones. "MELINDAAAA!" another voice yells. Melinwitt jerks awake in bed. A body hurtles toward her. She screams. It's her husband. He comforts her, telling her it's just a dream. He realizes she's "helping someone." Melinwitt crabs that she knows she said she'd give it a rest. But...you didn't! Earlier, you announced that there was no remote control for the spirit world, so why are you...? I mean, is it too much to hope for continuity in a single episode? Probably. Plus, I thought she said she was "giving it a rest" only on the night of her wedding, not for, like, weeks after the wedding. Whatever. I'm over it. Melinwitt goes on that the man who needs her help is a soldier and -- Jim interrupts her, saying he understands, he just thinks she should try to keep it at arm's length. "Remember, the magic word," Jim croons. Please? "Balance," Jim says. Oh. Right. The OTHER magic word.

Sometime later, Melinwitt sips a steaming hot mug of montage and Googles "Vietnam June 1972." She comes across the phrase "treacherous Lo Valley" and the spirit of a long-dead light bulb slowly flickers on.
