Season 2 of GHOST WHISPERER draws its curtains Tuesday 24 January 2012 at 9pm. At the end of the season, Melinda finds four children, each of whom have survived a different accident and have been prophesying about a tragedy.
Melinda believes she has to protect these children and at the one-year memorial walk for the plane crash, she pushes the children out of the way of a collapsing monument, but is struck and killed by it herself. She sees the light, and a ghost appears and talks to her. The children resurrect Melinda (it was actually the children’s job to protect her). When questioned by Jim, Melinda reveals that she believes the ghost was her father, Tom Gordon, and that he told her she has a brother.
The GHOST WHISPERER series follows the life of Melinda Gordon played by Jennifer Love Hewitt, who has the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. While trying to live as normal a life as possible—she is married and owns an antique store—Melinda helps earthbound spirits resolve their problems and cross over into the light, or the spirit
world. Her tasks are difficult and at times she struggles with people who push her away and disbelieve her ability.
In addition, the ghosts are mysterious and sometimes menacing
in the beginning and Melinda must use the clues available to her to understand the spirits’ needs and help them.
In the third season, Melinda searches in her family history for answers as she gets closer to learning the secret of her gift, her childhood, and her estranged father. She soon finds out that Gabriel is her half-brother. Melinda finds a series of tunnels which lead to a town buried deep below Grandview, which houses dozens of ghosts. She soon has dreams about a man in a mask coming to her in her sleep, and believes this is an event from her childhood.
At the end of the season, Tom Gordon appears in Grandview alive with Gabriel. It is revealed the man in the mask is Paul Eastman, and Melinda’s biological father.
In disbelief, Melinda goes with Tom to her childhood home and when they arrive inside, where he tries to kill Melinda, but she is saved when Paul’s ghost possesses Tom and throws him down a flight of stairs, killing him. The next day, Melinda and her friends meet in the town square. Melinda invites her mother, and the two say goodbye to Paul as he goes into the Light.
