Trivia

The writers of this episode appear to be influenced by the White Wolf game "Wraith: The Oblivion", a role playing game where players play as ghosts. The episode shares two things in common with the game. First the fact that a ghost can be anchored to an object that holds emotional sentimental value. Second that a huge wind is sweeping through the ghost world, that can be felt in the real world, and that sweeps ghosts away. See more »

Goofs

When Melinda falls in the forest and hits her head on the rock you can see the rock squish like a squishy mushy squish or something. So it is not a real rock. See more »

Melinda loses her paranormal powers as the result of a bad fall. A young girl is haunted by her dead beau, and wants Melinda's help. Melinda struggles to find a way to help her. The episode starts out with a boatload of spirits seeking Melinda for her help, and the effct is almost comical as she by now knows many of them by name. But it quickly turns tragic when she swerves her car to miss a ghost family standing in the road, and encounters the dead boyfriend in the nearby woods seconds before she falls and cracks her skull. She even loses sight of her ghost dog! Mom comes around, feeling very chipper since Melinda is no longer haunted. The ending is quite conventional for this series, more's the pity.
