As it turns out, Ghost Whisperer is indeed going ahead with its plan to jump five years into the future a la Desperate Housewives. Camryn Manheim, who plays Delia Banks on the CBS series, says the upcoming season as "scary."
"There's another underlining darkness to it," says Manheim, adding that Melinda's (Jennifer Love Hewitt) baby will indeed have some powers, but the Ghost Whisperer showrunners are still figuring out what he can and cannot do. "Where Melinda has embraced her powers fully for herself, she hasn't embraced it in this situation and it's very complex and complicated."
What does the five-year jump mean for Delia? For starters, her teenage son Ned (Christoph Sanders) will be in college, while her character is dating and back to real estate. "It's nice baecuase we get to reinvent it again.
As for Hewitt, she said it's "definitely fun" to play new mother because as a mom, she can be a little bit feisty.
After the jump, her baby will be at least four years old, old enough to do things other than cry and ask for milk. It was also previously revealed that the child "holds so much promise" - perhaps even more than his mom. In fact, an impending battle between good and evil might be resolved by the baby as "the key."
