Synopsis


Melinda gives birth to a baby boy the night that The Book of Changes predicted. At 11:48pm, time stops and then ticks forward again. Melinda sees a tide of blood seeping onto the floor and then a pair of ashen feet. Then everything is normal again and her baby is okay even though the doctors are puzzled by the fact that when he was delivered he was blue but his color came back before he even took a breath. Cut to FIVE YEARS LATER and Aiden is planning his birthday party with Melinda and Jim. Aiden can see ghosts & they try to be as open as they can with him even though Melinda is still wondering what sort of powers Aiden is going to get. She's also worried about his birthday as every year something happens to him - his birthday curse. This year Melinda sees a figure of a woman who warns her to check on Aiden. She runs to him and finds him completely blue & once again at 11:48pm time stops and resumes as color floods back into him. Melinda works to find the ghost that warned her and waht is happening to Aiden. She discovers that when she was in labor, another woman was also giving birth but there were complications and she died. Now a ghost, she believes that her baby also died and his spirit went into Aiden's body. Melinda finds out that the baby is still alive, having been adopted by the father, with whom the woman had an affair. Melinda gets to the ghost just as she corners both Aiden and her now grown 5-year old on a jungle gym and convinces her the boy is doing great with his family. In the aftermath, Melinda confronts Carl the Watcher, knowing now that she and Aiden have a connection - visions come from him and go through her and that he's an empath who can share others' feelings and experiences.
