They're heeeere....

Okay, now that you've seen episode 505, "Cause for Alarm" (if you haven't, go to and catch up quick!), you're beginning to glimpse where we're going this season. Aiden talks about some new "friends" which he sees but apparently Melinda doesn't. And, well, I'm not going to give anything away other than to say, everything you see on this subject is VERY IMPORTANT. Pay close attention, and don't miss an episode after this. Especially this week's Halloween show. And the one after that. And the one after that. And really REALLY the one after that...

Random factoid from recent episode: Believe it or not, the house Chad Lowe's character lives in (in the panic room episode that just aired), which looks like an industrial park or something, is actually a regular (rich person's) house. It's in Malibu, California. Move to Malibu, and you could live in a house like that too. (But don't forget to pack your winning lotto ticket.)

In the writers room we're breaking episode 514 right now, and things are really starting to heat up. Not in the writers room -- it's freezing in there. (Lousy thermostat. I wish I were kidding.) No, I'm talking about the season "arc" -- the big story we're telling in Season Five. We're starting to reveal a lot more about key supernatural elements, including the Book, and the Beings that you're going to meet soon. And man, are things going to get crazy and weird. I mean, CRAZY. And WEIRD. (You're supposed to pay attention to word choice here -- I don't have time to post a lot, so these infrequent items are clues...)

John Gray is busy writing episode 515, our 100th episode, to be directed by Love, which has been on the drawing board for some time, because it's so important. If you've been keeping up, you might have read that it's going to be "explosive." What can I tell you? Sometimes you need to believe what you read.

That's all for now. KEEP WATCHING. Because the season's big twists and developments (to borrow an AFI Top 100 Movie Quote, from the movie Poltergeist) -- THEY'RE HEEEERE....

Don't miss tonight!

Or any night, for that matter. We're starting to build this season's big mystery -- new enemies and new dangers, and maybe some new friends too -- and every week's episode has an important piece of the puzzle.

Tonight pay special attention to the ghosts. Oh, did I say ghostS, plural? I guess I did. I don't want to blow anything, but really, I'd be blowing it more if I didn't urge you to pay close attention. There's more to this episode than meets the eye. Don't miss a moment.
