‘Ghost Whisperer’: Okay, who cried?

Season five[].

Melinda gives birth to her son Aiden at the start of Season 5. A ghost appears five years later and claims that Aiden is her son. Melinda crosses this ghost over. The following episode features a ghost who sends chain emails to bring about bad things. This episode features a ghost with their mouth and eyes stitched shut. This ghost has yet to be seen again.

Aiden, Melinda’s son, starts to discuss ghosts known as Shinies and spirits known as the Shadows. The Shadows are after the Book Of Changes. They are constructed from the pieces that ghosts leave behind when they cross over. They are evil. The Shinies, also known as crossed-over spirits of children, are The Shadows’ adversaries. In the end, Aiden helps the Shinies defeat the Shadows, and everything returns to normal.

Update: Season 5 Scoop!

Ghostly whispers about next season (yes, next!), include: Dr. Jim (?! ), the “Book of Changes,” a particular baby’s unique talents, and perhaps a Grandview space-time continuum!

Season Two[]

Melinda defeats Romano to assist Andrea and many other ghosts from the plane crash cross over after losing her friend and business partner in the crash.

Rick Payne, an occult professor, frequently assists Melinda with a bothersome ghost without her knowledge until she informs him of her talent. She also meets widow Delia Banks and her son Ned. Melinda invites Delia to replace Andrea as her business partner after a few episodes and confides in Ned about her talent. In the episode Delia’s First Ghost, Melinda reveals to Delia her gift while attempting to seduce Delia’s husband. Delia, who is skeptical of anything out of the ordinary, gradually starts to believe Melinda.

Events that take place throughout the season demonstrate that the “veil” between the living and the dead is thinning. The earthbound spirit of Paynes’ wife reveals to Gabriel Lawrence, a second ghost whisperer, that evil forces “are trying to make the dead stronger than the living.” She discovered that she might have a brother from her deceased father in the season finale. She had passed away briefly when a tower of poles collapsed upon her before she realized this. Four children help revive her (as noted under “Abilities”). When she regains consciousness, she is shocked and says, “I think I have a brother.” Gabriel is glaring at her very angrily from a distance as she turns to look around.

Melinda Gordon

  • Edit source
  • View history

The series follows the life of Melinda Irene Gordon, who can see and communicate with the dead. Trying to live as normal a life as possible, she is married and owns an antique store with her best friend, Andrea. 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 do not believe in her gift. In addition, the ghosts are mysterious and sometimes menacing at first, and Melinda must use the clues available to her to understand the spirits' needs and help them.

Early Life [ ]

Melinda was born to Beth Gordon and Paul Eastman both of whom were mediums, like her. Melinda has been able to see ghosts since she was a little girl. Her grandmother told her about their abilities, and that Melinda's mother doesn't like their gifts because it scares her. Later on, Melinda met her husband, Jim, when her apartment building was on fire and had to be evacuated from the building. Melinda sees the ghost of an elderly woman whose husband is still inside. Melinda tells Jim that there is still a man inside, and even though he doesn't fully believe her, he goes inside and double-checks. He finds the man still breathing, and the man's wife. The wife is relieved that her husband is safe, and can cross over. Jim sees Melinda walking, and he gets off his fire truck to walk with her. After they met, they eventually got married and moved to Grandview, New York where Melinda opened a small antique shop, named "The Same As It Never Was" Antiques. She met and became friends with Andrea Marino, who came to share management responsibilities of the store with Melinda. Eventually, Melinda gained enough trust in Andrea to tell her about her ability.

Powers and Abilities [ ]

Mediumship: A hereditary gift, Melinda was born with the ability to see and communicate with earthbound spirits and uses this ability to help them crossover into the Light, however, there are a few that remain earthbound for many reasons. Spirits can give her visions of the past and future to give her information on what is keeping them earthbound, some scarier than others, due to some spirits forgetting various things from their name, families, and even their identity to the point that this and other things can reflect on how a spirit presents itself to her. She must give loved ones closure while the spirits find their peace and can move on. Her abilities have even been able to interact with technology, as she was able to pull a ghost out of a computer that was existing inside of an online chat game and was even able to enter the game world to confront them. Meredith is also possibly able to see ghosts in photographs as when she saw the glare on her wedding pictures she knew it was Dan, whether she saw him or had common sense is unknown. Her powers also might be unique amongst ghost whisperers as when the 1800s bloody ghost from Grandview said powerful, he could’ve been saying that he's finally strong enough to have caused the cave-in, although he might’ve caused others as well, or he might’ve been calling her powerful, something that supports this was when her ancestor Tessa said that other ghost whisperers have come to help but have died as well, and her stepfather backed this up as well.

Psychometry: It is revealed that Melinda is capable of a form of Extrasensory Perception, where she receives visions about the history of an object by touching said object.


Intense Energy: If a spirit(s) pushes too much of its energy onto Melinda it can overwhelm her to the point of passing out.

  • The Ghost Whisperer Baby Daddy Update: Who Knocked Up Melinda?

Matt richenthal

Melinda Gordon is knocked up. This is one Ghost Whisperer spoiler that was leaked as soon as we all saw shots of Jennifer Love Hewitt on set with a baby bump . So, who is the child's father? Jim or Sam? According to an interview the series creator gave E! Online, all signs points to... Jim. "Do the math: less time has passed for our characters than has passed in the broadcast calendar," said P.K. Simonds. "Basically, time slowed down in the aftermath of the big events at the beginning of the season. [The 12 episodes] since Jim died have taken less than 12 weeks in terms of Jim and Melinda's lives."

Are You Okay?!?

Wait... so So might Melinda have been pregnant this entire time without realizing it? "Sometimes you don't notice something like that," Simonds said. "Especially going through what she's gone through - the cycles [can be] interrupted by traumatic events." Wow. TMI, dude.

Characters / Ghost Whisperer

Edit locked.

The characters of Ghost Whisperer number pretty high over the series, and almost all of them get a decent amount of characterization given the ghost-of-the-week episode basis. For the sake of cleanliness, characters both living and dead will be divided by season.     open/close all folders 

Melinda Gordon

ghost whisperer when does melinda find out shes pregnant

  • Brought Down to Normal : After a car accident in Vanishing. Subverted at the end of the episode, when it's revealed that she has not lost her ability to see ghosts, but that something is "sucking" them.
  • Broken Bird : Melinda's own life is not without casualties. Sometimes this makes her an Iron Woobie, but she's shown to be very torn up about the losses in her life most of the time.
  • The Call : Not just her ghost-riddled daily life. Supernatural forces literally tell Melinda that she is the only one who can save certains souls before the end of season one.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come : Inverted, as she tends to see the past events of ghosts, rather than the future ones. However, in Season 4, when she is pregnant, she does have recurring nightmares of her baby's fate.
  • The Empath : Melinda is aware that ghosts can affect people and herself in more ways one, and commonly notes a presence even when she can't see it. In one episode she uses touch to trigger a vision on purpose to find out who killed a ghost.
  • Go into the Light : Her main goal, as a resolution of Unfinished Business .
  • Happily Married : For the most part
  • The Heart : Melinda's ability pretty much requires her to be this, as until she can make them feel better, ghosts will regularly screw around and cause harm.
  • I See Dead People : As per her "gift"
  • I Just Want to Be Normal : For a little while during her youth, as ghosts determinedly trying to talk to her was causing problems with her social life. She is now being made fun of because of her power to see ghosts.
  • Law of Inverse Fertility : Downplayed in "Deadbeat Dads", she and Jim attempt to have a child to no success, as she has a miscarriage. Eventually, this is turned around when she has Aiden.
  • Loners Are Freaks : She is being called a freak by an Alpha Bitch since high school in "Mean Ghost" in a flashback.
  • Long-Lost Relative : To Gabriel, who came from her father's side and was in a psych ward.
  • Muggle–Mage Romance : Is married to Jim, who has no power of his own.
  • The Soulsaver : Downplayed, however, she does this trope in a way by convincing and helping ghosts cross over, along with helping them come to terms with circumstances and or make amends with their loved ones.
  • Surrounded by Idiots : Melinda herself is actually very intelligent and resourceful, and thankfully usually has the sense to pick up a weapon when someone living might hurt her. It's just that the people she has to cooperate with can be kind of dense, sometimes seemingly on purpose.

ghost whisperer when does melinda find out shes pregnant

  • Identity Amnesia : When he becomes a step-in, he loses all memory of who he was as Jim or as Sam. Jim starts to come back to him though.
  • Killed Off for Real : He comes back though. Sort of.
  • Mr. Fanservice : Not to the extent of Melinda, but he has his fair share of scenes where he's shirtless and occasionally and beautifully bareass naked.
  • Muggle–Mage Romance : Is married to Melinda, and has no power of his own.
  • Sidekick : His connections to the police office are what tends to make many episodes possible where research is required. Unlike a lot of shows, Jim actually does get some strain and complains that he's running out of favors with them.

Andrea Marino

  • Bait-and-Switch : Even worse and more painful than other times in the show. In the Season One finale, when she thinks her brother is on a doomed plane, she gets in her car and rushes to see him, only for the plane he was supposed to be on to crash into her car and kill her. We're led to believe Melinda is trying to tell Andrea her brother is dead—but it turns out Andrea's the ghost.
  • Dead All Along : See the Bait-and-Switch entry
  • Sidekick : Played this role initially until she was replaced by Delia
  • Deadpan Snarker : One of the snarkiest characters on the show and delivers most of his lines with a neutral half-grin.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold : He's rude, sarcastic, has no filter, interrupts people and always thinks he's right. He also does his best to help Melinda, including putting off a much longed for sabbatical just because she's in the middle of a case she can't figure out without him.
  • Rejected Apology : To his late wife, who cheated on him despite loving him very much—she wouldn't have let him find this out, however, Gabriel convinced her to. This is what prevents her from crossing over.
  • Skeptic No Longer : His wife has been haunting him for a long time. When she gets vocal about it though, Melinda spills and he becomes a believer.

Delia Banks

  • Former Teen Rebel : As a Teen she was the type of girl, who would sneak out to wild parties and smoke pot.
  • Glamorous Single Mother : Subverted. She's more of a Struggling Single Mother , except she's more wealthy and is more overworked.
  • Mama Bear : When she finds out someone tampered with Ned's records, almost costing him a chance at private school.
  • Sidekick : Plays this role to Melinda in Season 2
  • When You Coming Home, Dad? : Before being hired by Melinda, she was often overworked as a real estate agent

Delia's teenage son

  • The Casanova : Has a new girlfriend very often, and at least once was sleeping with one girl and dating another. The girls were roommates.
  • Demonic Possession : Some of his behaviour was because of a ghost's influence.
  • Disappeared Dad : His Dad, Charlie, who passed away
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold : He tends to act jerkish but he's decent guy all around
  • Sticky Fingers : How his mother met Melinda, as the latter called his mother when she caught him shoplifting
  • I See Dead People : He doesn't see them, instead, he hears them
  • Near-Death Experience : A part of how he gains the ability to hear ghosts

Aiden Lucas Gordon

  • A Child Shall Lead Them : To the Shinies
  • Creepy Child : He can be, since he's an Empath and a lot of weird supernatural things happened (or happened more) while Melinda was pregnant with him.
  • Dead Guy Junior : Named after Melinda and Sam's deceased dads
  • The Empath : Might be why he can be a little creepy
  • Fetus Terrible : While Melinda was pregnant with him, his presence caused a bit of unrest in the supernatural realms
  • Bait-and-Switch : Oftentimes it isn't apparent that someone's a ghost until someone walks right through them.
  • Empathic Shapeshifter : Quite often, a ghost will start out looking anywhere from mildly disturbing to incredibly terrifying. Melinda notes that this a result of their mental state—if a ghost has just died, and/or is confused with their situation, they usually appear in the form they were when they died, that is to say, frozen over, with a burnt face, or no face at all in the cases of two separate ghosts. On other occasions, a ghost may appear blurry or distant to Melinda for similar reasons. As Melinda gets further into the case and figures more things out, they can appear more clearly and more close to a normal form rather than anything malevolent, as they understand more. This can be a surprisingly useful tool to know when a character in the show may be incredibly malicious or evil—if they're doing bad things and look completely normal, then it's bad news.
  • Demonic Possession : a variant and a subversion. All ghosts are capable of inhabiting bodies. One ghost inhabits the body of another recently dead against his will, and begins controlling the corpse, which eventually starts to deteriorate and forces him out. A ghost can also become a "step-in" as Jim does, but this will lead to memory loss and in worse cases suicide. There's also hypnotic suggestion, where a ghost will whisper (or scream) into a person's ear and affect their emotions and actions. One case of this got so bad that it very much seemed like the living bodies of two victims were being controlled, though as Professor Payne notes "only demons possess people". Despite this distinction, at least one man gets full-on possessed by his dead girlfriend at night.
  • Bait-and-Switch : Has a very heartwarming conversation with Melinda right before Melinda realizes she's a ghost and is dead in the next room.
  • The Mentor : To Melinda as well, a very trusted one.
  • Older and Wiser : Tying in her being Melinda's Mentor
  • Passed in Their Sleep : Implied, considering that the nurses in said flashback said something about her wanting to nap.
  • Hunk : Played by the very handsome Wentworth Miller.
  • I Will Wait for You : Why he couldn't cross over, as he thought his pregnant wife was at home waiting for him, unaware that his son was born and his wife had passed away.
  • Children Are Innocent : He starts off unaware that he died and simply think he's waiting for his mother.
  • Not-So-Imaginary Friend : He's this to Dylan, whose mother insists he's not real, much to his (and Dylan's) dismay.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin : Inverted, as she's the deceased twin, Natalie is the surviving twin.
  • Fake Twin Gambit : Helps Natalie pull this off
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling : The Foolish to Natalie's Responsible.
  • Polar Opposite Twins : With Natalie, as Natalie seems to be The Ingenue in comparison to Zoe
  • The Resenter : Natalie was the twin who could ace tests and do anything she put her mind to. Zoe wasn't, and resented Natalie for being the favored child, as she saw it. Despite this, she still loved her sister very much.
  • The Unfavorite : She thinks she's this to their dad, and thought he preferred Natalie.

Connor Donovan

A man who died in a bicycle accident worried that his girlfriend might hurt herself due to her grief.

Serena Hilliard

  • The Faceless : Initially, as she's wearing a veil

  • Green-Eyed Monster : Towards Lisa, who's marrying her surviving husband, Mark
  • Childhood Friend Romance : Downplayed, as she and Mark have been together since high school
  • Shotgun Wedding : The original reason as to why she and Mark were marrying and the marriage seemed logical, as they thought they were "madly in love".
  • Wight in a Wedding Dress : Is seen in a wedding dress, tying into Jacob Marley Apparel , as she died in that wedding dress.
  • Woman Scorned : An odd version, as she was mistaken in her feelings towards Mark (she really wanted the best man, Josh) and spends much of the episode with Misplaced Retribution

Rat, Vic, and Marty

  • It's All My Fault : Rat blames himself for the fire that killed him, Vic, and Marty
  • Only Known by Their Nickname : Although if one looks closely when Melinda is researching about the fire at the orphanage you can see their real names. Near the end of the episode Ernest (Ernie) also reveals that Rat's name is from his initials, "Ronald Aikens Tracy".
  • Evil-Detecting Dog : An odd variant, as he's dead, however he did react to something off.
  • What Happened to the Mouse? : For some reason, he stopped making appearances after "Children of Ghosts" and it's not said whether or not he crossed over
  • Helicopter Parents : Part of what made his granddaughter run away. He was overprotective to the point of controlling every aspect of his granddaughter's life.
  • My God, What Have I Done? : When he realizes why his granddaughter ran away

Marty Golden

  • Driven to Suicide : Apparently, he killed himself because his girlfriend wouldn't go on tour

Julian Borgia

  • Disappeared Dad : As we find out, his reason for not crossing over was that he wanted to make sure his newborn son was okay and make amends .

  • Easily Forgiven : Towards her late husband, who cheated on her the night she died, thanks to a sort of code between them that she took to mean he still loved her. The napkin he wrote it on was what the purse was hiding.
  • Wicked Stepfather : He's more interested in helping the ghosts cross over to the dark side and enlisted Gabriel's help to do it. Oh, and he killed Melinda's real dad, Paul Eastman and he would have killed Melinda, too, if not for Paul possessing his body .
  • Abhorrent Admirer : According to this Shane, she was a "nightmare" but the reality is that HE was was the one stalking her and might have led to her being so scared of people that she always took the stairs .
  • Shrinking Violet : As we find out, she was actually this. Her landlady described her as "quiet and scared to talk to people and she was so scared of people that she took the stairs. .
  • And I Must Scream : She had fits of catalepsy (think Madeline from The Fall of the House of Usher )
  • Buried Alive : When she was in a really bad cataleptic fit, her father thought she was dead but tied a bell to her wrist, in case she wasn't and she suffocated to death trying to claw herself out of her coffin .

Pete Murphy

  • Bait-and-Switch : Melinda doesn't realize he's dead until the soda she bought him falls through his hand.
  • Dark and Troubled Past : His mother died giving birth to him , so he was raised in a youth home and in and out of foster homes. He never stayed in any one foster home very long, though, due to being too much for the foster parents to handle. And then he died alone in a hospital at age thirteen.
