Storyline

When his housekeeper's daughter vanishes, DA Devalos asks Allison to help out with the case. Elena Agronov was a college student who practically grew up as part of the Devalos family and the DA is certain that something is wrong as a prolonged absence is out of character. Allison has had a dream about the girl who, unbeknown to anyone, has been working as a stripper. She's also been having an affair with a married man. It all takes a strange twist when the dead woman's spirit takes over Ariel's body. It's only obvious to Allison and she desperately tries to stop Elena/Ariel from taking revenge on the killer which would result in Ariel spending the rest of her life in jail. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Ariel's driver's license is shown, it is a horizontal license. Arizona uses a vertical system for those under 21 to make it easier for cashiers to spot underage buyers. Since she is under the age of 21, her license should be vertical. As is, her license suggests she is over the age of 21. See more »

I'll admit that it is largely something personal, but I think it goes beyond that.

This show has never really defined any rules for what happens to Allison and the girls. In fact the the things that happen follow pretty fluid rules. Good fiction is based on a universe with rules. Although this isn't strictly sci-fi, when I was in high school, one of the first things I learned in a writing class was that good sci-fi establishes the rules by which the story functions and sticks to them. This show doesn't do that.

Further, if we have a case where any spirit can body-snatch Ariel, by precedence, that means that any of the women in the family could have that happen at any time. What about Cooper? There are others in Allison's past that could represent a threat. In fact, it becomes pretty likely that it would happen again, and apparently there is nothing they can do to prevent it. Whether it happens again is arbitrary on the part of the writers. That is not good fiction.
