May 4, 207: Death of a Loved One Season 5, Episode 21

First, let's share a collective sigh-o-relief, shall we? *Sigh* No death of a loved one... yet. I was so tense every time Jim left the house, and the moment I saw Delia's close encounter with "death by stereo," I started to get really upset. I thought, "She finally learns Mel's secret, then gets killed a couple weeks later?! Didn't they do that last year? Why are they doing it again?!" Luckily, they didn't. Everyone we love in Mel's circle is still standing, but... for how long? Although Payne didn't seem anywhere near death's door at any point in the episode, I was getting sad about him going on that sabbatical. I'm glad he decided to stay... May sweeps needs Payne. It felt as though tonight's episode was like lining up dominoes - slow-going at times, but it's a steady build into an avalanche of apocalyptic-y goodness. I have to say, I was riveted... absolutely riveted, just as I was last week. I think my favorite scene this evening was of the underwater visions of the ferry sinking into the abyss: It was beautiful and so eerie. The audio captured that sickening, claustrophobic sound of deep, deep, dark waters... very scary, but also just awe-inspiring. When Melinda first opened the curtains, the blue glow and the white mist swept me right into one of my favorite horror movies, John Carpenter's The Fog (the only version that should have ever been made, thank you very much). The car-avalanche was quite impressive, too. I think the Ghost Whisperer folks may have spent a pretty good deal of the budget on this episode. Although we didn't get to see The AntiGhostWhisperer often tonight, Gabriel's moments during this episode were effective... just enough to keep that continual question mark in the air, and everyone on edge. I really love the sexual tension between Mel and him... it adds more layers to his foreboding presence. I realized tonight that I like Gabriel and Ignacio Serricchio the way I liked Billy on Six Feet Under, played by Jeremy Sisto. Jeremy Sisto is so gorgeous and magnetic, and an unbelievably amazing actor who does dark and creepy so well; I just love to be rattled by him. I sort of feel that way about Gabriel.... Is that wrong? Am I a bad person? [giggle] While I'm on the subject of gorgeous actors who do dark really well, what a pleasant surprise to see special guest star Julian Sands! Love him. But... I will never love another Ghost Whisperer man the way that I love Jim. Finally, I like it that the show is busting out of Grandview a bit, traveling to Europe and Russia and showing just how far-reaching Mel's gift potentially may be. Get ready for 511....

Premise: Newlywed Melinda Gordon tries to help the dead communicate with loved ones, 'but sometimes the messages she receives are intense and confusing.' Most of Melinda's efforts involve resolving conflicts that are preventing the spirits from passing over. The sentimental drama is 'inspired by the work of medium James Van Praagh.'
