Warning: Major 'Ghost Whisperer' Spoiler Below!

Image2Consider this your final warning.

Okay, so, death is no stranger to Ghost Whisperer. Heck, the show’s very premise hinges on Jennifer Love Hewitt chatting with the dearly departed every week. (Or so Mandi Bierly tells me.)

But this season, the Grim Reaper makes it personal.

Although CBS declined to comment, multiple sources confirm what has been buzzing on the Internet for weeks (final final warning): Melinda is about to become a widow, as producers have decided to kill off TV hubby Jim (David Conrad) early in season 4.



Remember, this is Ghost Whisperer, people. It’s highly unlikely that Jim’s death will mark the end of Conrad’s GW run (see also: sassy Talk Soup lady). But how long will he be sticking around and in what capacity? God only knows.

Bottom line: If, like Ms. Bierly, you only watch GW for “those special moments when he actually gets to do something, like wear a wifebeater to bed,” don’t freak out. At least not until I tell you to freak out.

Okay, time to freak out.

    I don’t like this. It ruined Close to Home. Why can’t they just give him more to do?

    Michael, women who lose their spouses through death, become widows not widowers.

    The Husband of a deceased spouse is the widower, the surviving wife is the widow.
    Just don’t tell Ned she’s on the market again.

    You are an idiot, Assiello.
    Its WIDOW, not widower.
    You did this in the House report yesterday too (Cameron is a WIDOW).

    If Jim checks out, so do I.

  • Chris

    WHAT?! I only watch the show cause Jim is at least in a tank top if not shirtless once every show!!
    This is a HUGE mistake to kill him off!

  • Raven_Moon

    Nooo!!! If Jim dies I’ll stop watching. It’s bad enough “Moonlight” is gone. Why would they do that. It’s just stupid. I guess my Fridays will be more open now.

  • Kat

    BAD Idea to kill off Jim. I mean, please… kill him off and let him linger around? The angst issue’s will make the storyline dull after awhile. Like Moonlighting or Remington Steele after the lead couple finally got together!

  • Ian

    Sorry, I don’t watch the show. Who is Melinda, referred to in the article? Bad journalism I guess.

  • Jean Hendrick

    If they kill of Jim, I will stop watching the show. I am tired of shows not honoring and showing good marriages, they are out there you know. I am sure the writers could come up with viable stories to include Jim if they put their minds to it. No Jim, No GW for me, bottom line.

  • DanOregon

    I keep waiting for EW to do an annual “in memoriam” feature for TV characters who are killed off during the TV year.

  • Snarf

    Oh the internet is going to be a MESS over this one.

  • Sam

    Jean is right- there are so few shows out there portraying marriage in such a positive light. How disappointing that they’d need to lose yet another character. Wasn’t killing off Melinda’s best friend enough of close people crossing over?!

  • Suz

    I think Jay Mohr leaves, not Jim, since he’s starting his own sitcom. BUT if Jim dies, I leave.
