Andrea and Melinda are contracted to auction furniture from a community inn before it is torn down. While cleaning the basement, Melinda finds the lost spirits of three boys and their dog that perished in an orphanage fire fifty years ago. Melinda tries to help the boys pass on before the inn is destroyed and they are forever locked as earth-bound spirits. Meanwhile, as she becomes a Wendy to these "lost boys" and their ageless Peter Pan-like leader, Melinda must also deal with Lew, Jim's visiting boyhood friend who has, in all aspects but physical, never grown past adolescence.

LOST BOYS is exactly what it sounds like: Melinda comes to the aid of a group of little boys, killed in an orphanage fire, who have been waiting for the return of one of their playmates, who may have escaped the fire. Melinda plays Wendy to their collective Peter Pan. The leader of the group is in fact the Peter Pan surrogate: He has no wish to move on and grow up, as it were. Meanwhile, a developer is intent on tearing down the old structure and replacing it with condos, which will leave the boys with no place to play hide and seek. The resolution contains a great twist, one that few will see coming. Many will recognize Bruce Weitz from HILL STREET BLUES as the developer. This continues a tradition of what I choose to call stunt casting in many of the episodes. They employ an actor or actress who is familiar from the movies or past TV shows.
