22 Episodes 2009 - 2010
The fifth and final season of the supernatural drama about antiques-store owner Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who helps the dead resolve their earthly dilemmas, opens with Melinda undergoing an emergency cesarean section—and then the show, as a whole, jumping five years into the future and landing at the 5th birthday party of Melinda and Jim's son, Aiden Lucas (Connor Gibbs). A fair bit changes during that leap, including Jim (David Conrad) having become a doctor, but much has not: Melinda stills sees and hears spirits, and still tries to shepherd them to the light. Among the cases that come her way: a chain e-mail that comes with a malevolent force attached; a haunted hospital morgue; and a radio station that broadcasts a mean-spirited skit thanks to the interference of a vengeful ghost. At the same time, she can't help but to worry about Aiden, who was born with both her gift and several others, one of which is the ability to see certain supernatural entities known as "shinies" and "shadows."
