It all started with a scrawny little kid beating up the school bully with his lunchbox, that only minutes before the bully had berated. Oh, how I yearned to do the same with my Partridge Family lunchbox. That would have shown any school bully I meant business.
It would take several dreams for Allison to find the significance of the dream of the young boy and his twin brother sitting outside the principal's office. But soon she would realize that the boys in her dream were the same as the adult brothers she was also dreaming about.
Miguel Ferrer starred in this episode of
Medium as the grown-up version of twin brothers, Joey and Teddy Carmichael.
The story, a drug dealer, Curtis Lambert, was shot execution style, one shot into each knee and one into his head. Not that he didn't deserve it, but it was nasty watching him crawl across the floor with his bloody knees. Who shot him was only part of solving the crime. According to Allison's dream, it was cut and dry. Joey Carmichael shot and killed Curtis, but upon meeting him it was evident he could not have not been the culprit. Joey's twin brother, Teddy, had gotten into some trouble with Curtis years back and had been shot in the head by Curtis' wingman, Martin. The damage was significant, reverting Joey's mental capabilities to that of a 12 year old and rendering his hands unusable.
Al's next dream led her to Teddy. However, unbeknown to Joey, Teddy had been beaten and killed by Martin, leaving Joey to fend for himself. Twins often have a powerful bond that even death can't break and Teddy kept taking care of his little brother, from the grave. Eventually, Teddy appeared to Allison and exposed the final secrets of the case.
Frankly, I couldn't tell if they were really supposed to be one person with split personalities, or what. I knew that Teddy had to be dead after being shot in the chest as many times as he was. It must have felt great for Joey to finally stand up for his brother when he went and killed Martin in the restaurant.
Scanlon nearly begged Allison to come and help him on the case, and when her dreams weren't adding up, he once again got irritated with her. Seriously, he needs to understand that although her dreams may not seem to make any sense, they are almost always right. And Lee rarely apologizes for doubting her. Frankly, I think it might be time to see Lee eat some crow.
Kelly Preston was back as the alluring, if crazy, Megan Doyle, and even though she apologized profusely to Joe for her completely inappropriate behavior last week, she ended up causing more commotion by sending Joe a $2,200 cashmere robe. When Joe showed Al the robe, they had a real knock-down fight in the garage, but I was completely on her side. He really should have come to her and told her when it happened. Granted, he didn't feel like there was much to say, but he should have picked up on her mood all week. Plus, he's been married to her for what, like 16 years, you'd think he might worry that she might have a dream about his dalliances with the new hottie in the office. Incidentally, Joe has really been getting a lot of screen time this season and I love it.
Bridgette was a troublemaker to her little sister Marie, when usually she is much nicer to her. She was playing with Marie's glasses and wouldn't give them back. Ariel was actually pretty nice to Bridge explaining why she couldn't see out of them, yet Marie could see better. Allison put the kibosh on the teasing.
They don't often show Allison or Joe just playing with the girls. Nine times out of ten it's just breakfast, lunch or dinner. So it was especially fun to see Allison performing in the finger-puppet play for her newly eye-glassed daughter, Marie.
My favorite line:
"I find all this good cheer depressing."
We're one short week away from the season finale of
Medium. But you can console yourself by watching clips in our
Online Video Guide.
