Jim is devastated when a female teenage patient of his dies unexpectedly during a simple surgery. When he and the senior attending, Dr. Morgan, seem to get haunted after the procedure, Jim is sure it's his patient. Melinda discovers through a vision its actually Tina Clark, a medical school classmate of Jim's and Dr. Morgan's old TA. In her vision, Melinda got the impression that they were having an affair and the newspapers have reported her missing. When Jim tries to ask Dr. Morgan about her, Dr. Morgan clams up. Through a dream, Melinda discovers Tina worked as a stripper to make money to help her through medical school. When she and Jim question one of the strippers, they discover that Tina was seen with President Bedford, the president of Rockland U. According to Dr. Morgan, who finally admits to his relationship with Tina but having no idea what happened to her, President Bedford was the only one who knew about their affair and encouraged Morgan to break it off and not jeopardize his chance at the presidency for Rockland. Tina ran away but news of their relationship campe out and Bedford replaced Morgan as the top candidate for the job. When Eli confronts Bedford, already angry and sick of the way Bedford has always abusively treated him, Bedford admits to his attitude toward Eli all being an act. He'd been trying to protect him and Melinda from the Shadows who are really pulling the strings with the series of events. Melinda gets increasingly worried about these so-called all powerful Shadows as she can feel them but can't see them or hear them. She suddenly feels helpless and concerned about their power as even The Book of Changes erased all mention of them in fear.
