See larger image

Last night on "Ghost Whisperer", it was revealed how Melinda has to face the biggest fear in her life, the death of her loved one. In the next episode of the show, Melinda will get used to the changes after her husband Jim leaves the living world and becomes a ghost who promises to stay by her side.

"Threshold" will see Melinda trying to cope with the dramatic changes in her personal life, while at the same time struggles to help a desperate teenage ghost. Melinda finds it difficult to go on with her calling as a ghost whisperer after the tragedy, but she talks to a ghost that says she thinks she helped kill Melinda's husband. Meanwhile, Jim begins to see how things work from the other side.

Joanna Cassidy ("Six Feet Under") will guest star as Faith Clancy in the episode that will air November 14.

In an interview with TV Guide, Jim's depicter David Conrad shared of how the audience will see Jim after his death. He said,"I think they'll see a Jim like they've never seen before. I think he'll find out who his true self is, though it might take a long time. That's cryptic."

This show used to be a good and touching show. What happened? The story lines suck. I don't care what happens to any of the characters now. There are no more heart warming stories!

This show went from good entertainment to pure garbage with the killing off of Jim, then he's a ghost, then he jumps into another body thing. Why did the writers even bother with this stupid plot line. Yeah, he got his memory back, but it was a day late and a dollar short. This show jumped the shark big time over this. I don't even bother watching anymore.

I really looked forward to watching the ghost whisperer every week. Now since they killed off jim, and put him in someone else's body. It suck's!!! If they want to bring back the show, they should just say Melinda was in a dream and jim is still alive. Good-bye ghost whisperer you let alot of people down.

The whole episodeIcried. this sucks! I really hope however that b/c jim died and that IF he comes back he might have gained the same talent as melinda & could then help her. that would be a SWEET twist! If jim dosent stay I would really get depresses.

WHY, WHY, WHY, is what i have to say!!! These writers only have me for a couple more shows. If they don't bring Jim back...i am history. This was the dumbest move in history. I hope the idiots writing this show are reading these posts, cause everybody is pretty ticked off!!!

I am so glad that everyone feels the same way..their marriage is what most people wish for and hope..i know its just a show but people really feel the love they share and I AM SOOOO UPSET that Jim is dead!'s just not right!
posted by Sherylgirl on Nov 15, 2008
I, too am very disappointed by Jim's death, and I hope the writers have something up their sleeve besides bring him back as a ghost. I agree with some of the others in that I enjoyed seeing a happy, fulfilled married couple who complement each other so beautifully. I can't imagine why they did this -- and I hope they will reconsider.

Do they think ther're suddenly goning to get more veiwers by sending Jim away and replacing him with a (less hotter) version of him. . .? I DON'T THINK SO! Let's Go Burn The Writers Houses. . . .

what would happen if all this is a dream, but not melinda. Jim, at the hospital Jim is in a coma maybe dreaming what would happen if he died. melinda fail a sleep on the chair beside Jim. maybe Jim and melinda are having the same dream. maybe they love is so strong they are connected even in spirit. ghost whisperer is a good series, because of Jim and melinda relationship like ( Lois and Clark ) one cannot survive without the other. if something work wonderful don't mess with it.

I am a big fan of ghost whisperer. it was a good show, if the writers decide to kill jim character that was stupid. maybe jim wasn't the main character like melinda, but jim was the second best. don't kill jim in ghost whisperer season three melinda hand a vision that wasn't hers, but someone else. if the writers or smart they should make all this a dream, but not melinda, jim is in a coma and dreaming of what would happen if he died. I just hope is a dream...

IRRITATED IS ALL I CAN SAY. ARGGGGG! Fire the writer who ruined the entire supportive story line. So many better things they could have done with the injury, he gets a gift, they are a team..but this. These guys just ruined a great show.
posted by sharlann on Nov 14, 2008
I loved the love story. I am not watching anymore if Jim is dead. I hope he is in a coma and will wake up soon.
posted by Raylynn on Nov 14, 2008
I thought the writers were professionals. That was such a lame story. Now he is in someone elses body. You got to be kidding me. They could have written excellent stories with him alive. There was never a reason for him not to be a front and center character. There was so many ways to keep him a big part of the story without killing him off and have him in another body. I don't understand why they couldn't come up with something better. Change it NOW it's not too late.

Can't you just leave well enough alone. Melinda's relationship with Jim filled my heart. If this is not Melinda's dream or Jim's comatose life, I'm not watching anymore. STUPID EPISODE FROM A STUPID WRITER!! FIRE HIM! :(

I'm very sad that JIm has to die. I'm very mad at the director right now! If only Jim was alive again things would only get better.

hi fans, i'm upset too, but the producers wouldnt do this to us. i beleive melinda is having a bad dream and when she wakes up everything will be ok.

I guess they are just playing with your head. This will be like the episode of Dallas where everyone thinks JR was dead, and it ends up that it was only a dream....hopefully...

It sucks that Jim has to die. I agree with my sister Camilia and I was sad too. I hope the producer changes the fact that Jim is dead.

Please don't make jim die,I'm 9 years old and I've been crying for a long time. WHY DOES HE HAVE TO DIE? ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE LEFT. I hope she is just having a nightmare.

I agree with most everyone else,too depressing.First her best girlfriend,now her husband.I'll be changing chanels.Bad move on the writers part.

It seems like every time I invest myself in a weekly show, the writers eventually disappoint me. TV viewers watch TV for a reason: to look forward to the ongoing storyline. So many episodes have hinted at a pregnancy for the couple. So, to go this route shows very poor judgement on the part of the writers.
posted by Raylynn on Nov 14, 2008
I can't understand why he couldn't be a big part of the show being alive. They could have had him helping her like he did on the cruise ship episode. I thought that was a great episode. He was right there with her. He was completly involved. He could have been doing that the whole time. I never understood why they always had her with someone else helping her or by herself. I think they make a great team. Keep him alive, as Jim, not possessing someone else's body. I think its stupid.

youre all upset and I am to, but the show needs to have an end.......
posted by BEER999999@aolcom on Nov 13, 2008
I too am very upset that they killed Jim off. Even though they will keep his spirit is much better to have him be with her in the flesh. They had a magical relationship on the show. Why ruin it? I did hear Jennifer say on an interview that their WILL be little footsteps in her house but that it will a spirit who gets her pregnant. I guesss we can see where this is going. Still Why kill him off? This sucks! And why not show her friend that works with her have a relationship...heavy woman like love and sex too.

Big mistake! This is the only show on Fridays I watch. I'm getting a little tired of channel nine. I'm still ticked about the canceling of Moonlight. I gather that if channel nine keeps this up, I won't be watching it much longer.

I can't believe this!! I will never watch your show again! They completed each other! You can't take him from her! Suckas!!
posted by Ga Girl on Nov 13, 2008
Write me off as a viewer, too. I guess these writers are like the ones who write for soap operas, they can't let anyone have a family. Showing her boobs each week didn't help the ratings guess this is a last ditch effort just not at my house! Good bye Melinda!!!!
posted by Jennifer on Nov 13, 2008
Can't someone have a "normal" relationship. Melinda and Jim were going to have a family and now Jim's a ghost?? What the heck is going on?! What a waste of a great character and good story-line. This had better be a dream or this show is losing a whole lot of viewers.
posted by SCRAPBOOKCHERYL on Nov 13, 2008
I work hard all week long, I look forward to an hour of escape watching Ghost Whisperer and now you ruin it by taking away yet another great character...what are you people thinking...I realize it's just TV - but the writers need to realize it is an escape from all the crappy stuff people have to put up with at our jobs, the grocery stores, the kids, the husbands, killing off's just not going to be the was sad to see him go...I seriously hope you take a que from Dallas and make it all a bad dream...cause right now as the show stands it's a nightmare...

What is wrong with you people!?!? i actually cried when i saw they killed jim!! he was her only help and support...perfect couple..that not even death can's just sick..i'm done waching this!!!!
posted by jen on Nov 13, 2008
I can't believe Jim is gone. I'm sure he'll come back as a ghost. I remember a long ago episode where Mel and Jim asked each other what they would do if the other died and Jim said if he died he would stay with and "haunt" Mel forever. Still, I can't help but feel sad. They had the marriage that most people can only dream of.

i can't believe that they killed off Jim. i really really hope that she is dreaming but i really don't think she is! i will not stop watching the show i have watched it since the beginning but it was really upsetting that he was killed off!

hmmm... Jim is dead... and it is not a dream... wrong !!! sad !!! wtf?!?! i don't this is sick... i have no hopes or expectations...

Big mistake killing off Jim. He was a real live character she could kling to for support. I don't think I'll be watching the show again. Sorry
posted by Sally on Nov 11, 2008
Taking Jim away was so heart wrenching, not sure I will like the show as much now. Killing Jim was a mistake. I never missed an episode. Killing the professor Payne would have been a better idea. I know this is Linda's show but I feel David Conrad was a huge part of her success (living)to support her. Not sure if I will continue to watch
posted by msvfig on Nov 11, 2008
I couldn't believe it. I cried. I can't believe that Jim, as a side-kick is going to work out. They truly completed each other. What a screw-up!!! I can't see them bringing back a dream. Same goes with Moonlight.

I can't believe this!! They were the best couple ever and now he's dead! they're takin all the good actors/ actresses off the show now only melinda is worth watching. I was sick to my stomach at the end!!!

Okay, first time reading comments on the show. Hey, Lexi, I understand how upset you are. Don't give up yet, your too young to remember how they killed off Bobby on the show Dallas. They had a whole season with him supposedly dead. Turned out his wife, Victoria, was dreaming the whole thing. Well, remember that Melinda was sleeping in the chair beside Jim's hospital bed???.... You never know. I'm holding out it's all a dream....
posted by Michim711 on Nov 11, 2008
one of the many reasons i watched and have in DVD all previouse seasons is to see what else is Jim going to do to steal not only melinda's heart but every girl out there that has wished to have a man like that..... no he is gone? just like that? When Andrea died.. it was hard but JIM?? come on.. there was no need for that.... i have to admit i dont think i will stop watching but it wont be the same
posted by melissa on Nov 10, 2008
They killed off Jim, one of the few examples of a man who is truly in love with his wife, so that he can be a helpful ghost sidekick instead? Way to jump the shark.
posted by kelli on Nov 10, 2008
I was a devoted viewer of this show, however, I will not be watching anymore. Nobody likes to watch things that make them sad continually. Once in awhile is different, but they are constantly taking the main characters away. I'm not going to watch something that makes me sad week after week. It was a good show but don't see it lasting much longer.

What I like about this show is that you don't always see what's coming.....I can't wait to see who becomes a ghost next.....Jim will probably hang around and be Melinda's sidekick.....
posted by maggiemay on Nov 10, 2008
I like many of your other readers have been watching Ghost Whisperer since the beginning. I have always felt that the story surrounding Melinda and Jim was the heart of the show. Now after reading all of these entries by other fans I can see everyone else agrees. I really hope that the writers will take to heart what their avid watchers have said. With the technology today writers can now see the emotion of the fans with a click of a button. Please take advantage of this and listen to your fans and please do not kill off Jim or have him stay as a ghost. There have been so many movies with that plot line. Do something original bring him back as himself and let them have a baby together.
posted by Greta on Nov 10, 2008
That was so drastic! I didn't imagine that it'll turn this way. I nearly cried myself when i've seen the end of the show. It's soooo sad. Even though Jim was main character it's always hard to let go. If i was a director of these series i wouldn't do that. It's too cruel.

So, he dies. I wanted to cry, but you know what. Death is a part of life, and every good story has a painful death that helps move the story forward. I won't refuse to watch it just because he died. I saw it coming after the warning she was given that what she does may cause death to brush off on the ones she loves. Well, it seems to have happened. I am even more interested in watching the show now than ever actually.

The writers did their job. They caused 'reaction' and 'emotion' for its viewers. We'll miss Jim but I suspect the good stories will continue.

Hate to break this to you guys... But word was out awhile ago that this season would be "dark" as no previous season before. Melinda would learn a "sad lesson on paying the price for her special "gift". Have you all forgotten the creepy "death" ghost in earlier seasons that kept "forcing" ghosts to go with him rather than be "helped into the light" by Melinda? Lets not get all upset & threaten to quit a great show because it's changing. It's a TV show - FICTION! Who knows, maybe the season ender's cliffhanger has Melinda in a coma & Jim, Prof. Payne & the rest of her friends try to "wake" her.

I can not believe that you killed Jim! As far as I am conserned you have ruined the entire show by killing Jim. If he is going to continue on the show as a dumb ghost I will NEVER watch the show again. He needs to stay alive. If you want somebody to find out about the ghost world kill somebody esle besides Jim. Melinda needs her husband. I will never watch this show again, and I think I will have a lot of followers.

Shame on the writers, producers, actors anyone who went along with this ridiculous plot, I thought hollywood was out of touch with real people considering their politics, Now I know their out of touch with the way we really think. Another one bites the dust.
