Just finished this episode. As I've got it as a file a usually watched it on my computer, today I finally took the time to get me Samsung Smart View and watched the episode on my big screen smart TV! Wooohooo!!
As you know I'm a very big fan of the medical stories happening in Hope Zion that don't have to do with Charlie and Alex, and this time they were okay, there were more exciting ones but it's okay as this week the more exciting story was about Charlie's ghost ... which leads me to my other two topics about this weeks episode, one's good, the other one's not so good.
The not so good first: Alex and Charlie back not really back together and behaving weirdly. Not that I don't understand why they wouldn't jump back in with each other, but the way they do it is odd. If this was season 3 or so, I would get the tension and feel excited when they finally gonna kiss again, but this is season 5 and it's the final season. This doesn't make me feel excited anymore, it makes me feel annoyed and makes me want to vomit (which is quite something considering all the graphic stuff shown on this show). So stop it already, get into bed, show us some shirtless Charlie and a little love scene or don't but stop messing around like this, it's annoying. --> well, unfortunately nobody can hear me now.
Okay, so to the better part: Finally Charlie was confronted with a really mean ghost and he was kinda freaky. We could see some of Michael's great face-acting-abilities that we all I think love so much. I don't know, when I think of that scene in the morgue, who was more scary, Blake or Charlie ... I would have feared Charlie more in that moment! I hope that this was only the start of what's going to happen, and I need answers. I hope they will answer the question why Charlie really can see ghosts and also why they become more and more scary. This one wasn't bad and I liked it although I found they resolved it too fast.
So, all in all this was a good episode, maybe not the best of them all, but a good one, especially considering that I'm generally not really fond of season 5 so far. At the I think they ended the episode to sudden, I was almost surprised about the end, not hug, no kiss, not let's move on with eating, just end? Well, I'm still looking forward to the next episode.
At least Charlie and Alex have talked and are trying to move forward. A new baby doesn't instantly fix things and Alex's mom telling her she's not cursed doesn't ease her mind 100%, and now the nightmare and the creepy ghosts. As much as I'm on Charlie's side and want Alex to support him and his ability, she's right in that Charlie can't predict certain spirits like Blake and Crenshaw. Yes, that ending did feel sudden.
I also would like to know more about the ghosts...why Charlie sees them, why some of them can make contact, and some can leave the hospital.
Loved Zach, Shahir and Jackson this episode. Some great comedy moments to balance the creepy and queasy.
