Medium Episode Recap: "The Devil Inside, Part II" Season 5, Episode 12

"You are broken." The words are written in blood in the D.A.'s office, but only Allison sees them. Allison accompanies Scanlon and Devalos to the morgue to view the serial killer's latest victim and hears her crying, "Mommy." She lifts the sheet and sees Ariel dead on the table. Lucas Harvey is still haunting Allison from the grave. Will he get the better of our heroine? Or will this Medium be able to get rid of this ghost once and for all?

There's been a break in the serial killer case when a "mark" from the serial killer is found on more than one of the victims. The killer has been stuffing an "Inspected by #8" tag in the nostril of the girls. Allison dreams about the killer and Kevin, and Scanlon follows her lead to find him dead in his house, surrounded by all the evidence needed to know he is the killer. (What's nice is that both Scanlon and Devalos thank her for her help. Scanlon even goes so far as to say, "You're back, Allison Dubois.")

The next series of dreams shows that Kevin had been working with a partner, who appears in Al's dreams as an animated smiley face. Unfortunately, it's a little difficult for her to explain this to Devalos, so he decides that he's satisfied that they have caught the one and only killer. That only lasts until he hears about another killing in Scottsdale. Oh, why do they ever doubt Allison?

Lucas Harvey appears to Allison half-naked, thank you, and tells her she is irrelevant. He intends to restore balance on his mission from God. She might be scared if he wasn't so, well, dead. He is hindering her ability to identify the serial killers. Lucas, half-naked, (did I already mention that?) has infiltrated her dreams and is altering them to discredit her. He says he is doing it for all the mediums around the world. Time must be very malleable when you are dead, that he can travel around the world and still have time to scare the Bejeezus out of Bridgette in the meantime.

Let me just say that his scene with Bridgette was quite disturbing. It was bad enough that he appeared to her sans shirt in the nurse's office at school, but it was quite something else when he told her to tell her mother that he intended to slit Bridgette's throat and send her "lying little ass straight to hell." I have to hope that Maria Lark won't need therapy for the rest of her life for that scene. I get nauseous thinking about it.

Marie is cuter than any button I've ever seen. She is still cutting dolls from the financial pages and is naming them after businesses. Her harmless statement, "Maye's buying Wilt's house," proves to be more than just a simple game of paper dolls. Joe is certain that Marie is intuiting stock market gold and tries unsuccessfully to convince his wife that he should tap into her skills and make them a fortune. They tell their daughter to stop cutting the newspaper. But when Joe wants to hear more stock tips and tells Marie to cut up the paper again, she exclaims, "You told me not to, Daddy! Paper dolls are for babies." Joe tries to urge her on, naming companies, "Apple? It worked for Gwyneth Paltrow." No dice. She heads to bed. He relays the scenario to Allison, sad because they "knocked the Warren Buffet right out of Marie.

Lucas thinks he can talk Allison into killing herself, but he hasn't taken into account that she is much stronger than that. And besides, she is saved by the bell, or at least by Tricia Daniels, and the other girls killed by Kevin and Donald. I absolutely loved the not-so-subtle revenge ending with the girls and their buddies taking Lucas down. Way to give a guy his comeuppance! I'm pretty sure we won't be seeing him again. He's been relegated to the depths of hell, right where he belongs, leaving the dreams to the visionaries once again.
