After Allison has a skin graft on her left hand after a kitchen accident, it begins to act rather oddly. Her hand will grab onto people or objects, including the television remote control where is will constantly change channels. At the same time she is having dreams about a young woman, a doctor, who is assaulted and put into the trunk of a car. She eventually concludes that the skin graft she has received came from the dead woman but how to prove that her hospital colleague is responsible for the young woman's murder is the puzzle Allison has to solve. Bridgette meanwhile seems to have become a soccer star all of a sudden. She hasn't told her parents about her sudden success - they think she is the team's equipment manager - and for good reason since she is actually receiving ghostly coaching. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Although credited, Sofia Vassilieva (Ariel Dubois) does not appear in this episode. She is conspicuously absent during a number of the Season 7 episodes since she was attending Columbia University in New York when they were being filmed. Within the context of the show, Ariel's absence is explained for the same reason. Incidentally, Vassilieva graduated with honors from Columbia in 2014. See more »
