Ghost Whisperer Teaser:
Medium makes the move to CBS. At the end of last season, Allison (Arquette) had just undergone brain surgery and maybe lost her vision abilities.
On Smallville least season, Clark Kent (Tom Welling) dealt with Doom but the body count was high. Now the Red-Blue Blur has got more work to do on his hero gig. Do clothes make the man? Maybe it’s time for a new suit?
Is Echo (Eliza Dushku) on the path to self-awareness and insurrection? Now that Paul Ballard (Tahmoh Penikett) is working on the inside, can he pull everyone out of the Dollhouse? Or is it back to brothel as usual?
