When Jim and Melinda's army friend, Matt, returns from Iraq as a wounded hero, it quickly becomes obvious that he's returned with spirits attached to him. Initially, Melinda isn't sure who these spirits are, but she soon learns that they are his fallen comrades, men in Matt's squad killed in the same ambush in which he was wounded. Because there was so much confusion during the ambush, Matt feels that he may have abandoned his men, and when a video of the incident surfaces and opens an investigation, it appears to confirm that Matt did indeed desert them. However, once Melinda is able to communicate with Matt's men, she learns that they've attached themselves to him to ensure that the truth is told: that Matt went on a suicide mission to distract the insurgents so his men could escape. Matt's plan worked, but when his men went to move, they accidentally ignited an IED, leaving Matt as the sole survivor. Once they're able to share their story with Matt and help close the investigation, the dead soldiers cross over.
