Ghost in the hood
15 February 2009 | by ctomvelu-1See all my reviews

Except for the ongoing train wreck of a subplot involving Sam/Jim, this was a pretty decent episode. It involves a sorority tragedy, a missing student, and a hooded ghost who may not be who she appears to be. Melinda gets involved after the hooded ghost appears to her. The only interesting thing about the train wreck subplot is that Sam/Jim becomes aware that Melinda lies a lot. Hopefully, he will decide to leave town. Hopefully. The episode does a little COLD CASE plotting when Melinda goes to talk to a former student of the college who is now a member of AARP. Flashbacks to the woman's student days help Melinda unravel the mystery of the hooded ghost.
