The Ghost Whisperer Series Finale Review: "The Children's Parade"

at . Comments

Last night marked the season finale of The Ghost Whisperer - and by the looks of it, the series finale. Tear.

Hopefully another station will pick up our favorite spooky show! (Hint - Hint - ABC, Cmon! Please!?)

George Wendt on Ghost Whisperer

Finally the Shinies came back into play and we get what we've been waiting for! The ultimate battle between the light and the dark.

It was interesting to find out that the Shinies are a bunch of children. Children are known as being pure innocents so it would make sense that the Shinies were only made up of ghost children.

This also answered our question on why the Shadows were so interested in getting ghost children above anyone else. The Shadows were trying to build a bigger army to destroy the Shinies, but the Shinies are stronger and more powerful.

"The Children's Parade" really showed us what Aiden is made out of - Bravery. He knew that it was up to him to lead the battle against the Shadows to save his mother and he not only pulled it off, but gave a remarkable speech to get the Shinies together.

So now that the Shinies destroyed the Shadows - do you think that they will be able to gather their powers and come back again? Could this really be the end of the Shadows? We have a feeling that if another station decides to pick up this show, it won't be!

We were surprised that Bedford was no where to be seen throughout this episode. His storyline was crucial to the battle and yet when the chip fell - he was M.I.A. What gives? If this episode really is the series finale, it would have been nice to have him cross over into the light.

Overall, we were pretty impressed with this last episode and the fact that it ended happily with the family together and really no cliffhangers. What surprised us most is how non-creepy Aiden was. We even venture to say he was cute! Especially at the end when he told his mom he was brave like she is every day. Awe!

What did you think of the series/season finale?! Do you think this show should be saved? Leave your thoughts below!

I think all stations should pull every freaking reality show off the air and leave our non-reality shows, especially Ghost Whisperer!!!! I mean after all, we live and breath our own reality every single day!

And I agree with Natasha, if CBS doesn't want it, pull Private Practice on ABC!! Or CBS should pull some of the shows they are currently showing Friday nights. So far, not impressed.

I agree, this show truly has the potential to be on-air for many more seasons. I would LOVE to watch Aiden grow up and see what he can do.....of course along with Ned, Eli, and his mom :) The characters are there. If the actors are willing to stay in, get some creative writers and get back to work!!!!!

I'm so so sad! This was the only show my Mom and I agreed on; we had a standing date every Friday night. We were both captivated starting Season 1 and never faltered. CBS you've gotta wake up!!

I really don't understand why the Networks choose to ignore the viewers. They are indeed just all about money. If they can turn 2% more or even 1% they will. Bottom line, we viewers really have no power because we have no way to really ban together inmasse. Posting here & there does nothing. Some computer genius should start a website where we can pull together. If a couple of million of us said something maybe they would listen. Just saying...

I think Ghost whisperer should replace private practice on ABC..That show is useless, ABC might as well invest in a show that everyone really wants to watch..

How stupid is CBS?? This is one show that kept me captivated from season 1 to season 5..There were no dull moments. The end of each episode had me in tears and left me wanting for more, so much so that I watched all the 5 seasons again on Netflix, just to relive the experience..There is so much material with which the show can go forward for atleast 3 more seasons..I visualized Aiden being an awkward teenager who can see ghosts, Melinda still sees ghosts and has her own story on the side but the focus is more on Aiden and his ghosts..Eli is Aiden's closest confidant because of the gift they have and also because of his knowledge of the book of changes and he also has a woman who accepts him finally...Ned is probably engaged, maybe to that girl Kate he met on one of the episodes.so Many potential stories...The show will never be short of viewers..CBS should just get off its Ass and get that show on air again!! Its been a year since the show ended, and people are still talking about it!! Is CBS so oblivious to its viewers???
