The Ghost Whisperer Review: "Blood Money"

at . Comments

On this week's episode of The Ghost Whisperer, Melinda's life was actually in physical danger.

"Blood Money" showed us the perfect example of how money is the root of all evil. Henry was a very rich boy whose parents never gave him any of it because they wanted him to not just be a lazy trust fund kid, but to have goals and aspirations for himself. One would think that if you did have the kind of money that the Austin's had, this would be the perfect way to raise your child.

But, things usually never work out like you plan them and because of Henry's friend Jeff's influence, they set up his own kidnapping to get two million dollars from his parents. It was sad that Henry had to die because Jeff didn't believe he could keep this from the cops. We were wondering how, if Henry was in on his own kidnapping, why would he get to see the light? It made sense after the flashback because Henry didn't want the money, he just wanted to go home to his parents.

In Danger?

Moral of the story? If you are multi-million dollar wealthy make sure to always talk to your children about the evils that come with having so much money. Money changes people and in order to stay grounded, you must give to the less fortunate. That's all we got from it. What do you think the moral of this story was?

Another part that confused us was why were the three kids going to that barn anyway? It looked like the only one that didn't know about the money was Greg. The last scene with these guys was in a hospital prison. We feel the writers didn't do a good job wrapping this part of the story up.

Since we only have a couple more episodes before we say good-bye to our beloved spooky friends, it was nice that they threw us a bone and gave us Carl at the end. We really didn't understand his warning.

First he tells Melinda that the Shadows feed off of energy and if they become fearful of her, they will attack her and her family. He leaves telling her to worry less about greed and focus on fear. We don't get it. What should she be fearful of? And how will this help keep her family safe? What does greed have to do with the Shadows and Melinda?

One thing we know for certain is that Aiden will play a huge creepy role in the season finale - we can just feel it!

Hi.
They went into the barn because they were on their way to a bush party. They got lost and saw the barn. They saw a ton bunch of holes out front and one of the boys decided that that must mean that someone was looking for something of value. They did not know about the money before they went into the barn. It started to rain so they went in and all started looking around. The one boy fell through the floor and found some of the money. He wanted to keep it all for himself, so he screamed at his friends to run and scared them out of the barn. They left, he left after and ran towards Canada with the money. He found out about the boy who was kidnapped and the ransom and realized that there must be more money, so he contacted his other friend and had him go look. He got caught at the border though and his friend got knocked out and went to the hospital. They were not in the prison hosiptal because Jim was there, and Jim comments that the guy is able to be there with his friend because he is out on bail.
Whew.

Something is happening to my visions - they seem to be merging together with my reality and I can't seem to tell the two apart.
