Melinda Gordon - played by Jennifer Love Hewitt
What we know: She can see and communicate with the Dead. She was married to Fireman/ Paramedic Jim Clancy and they live in a fixer-upper house in Grandview. Jim was killed by accident in the beginning of season 4 however, his spirit entered the body of Sam. She is a sixth generation Ghost Whisperer, her Great-Great-Great-Grandmother (Tessa) being first (revealed in S03e05). Melinda owns and operates an antique store in Grandview called "Same As It Never Was Antiques". When stressed, she takes solace in ice cream. She also takes turns with Delia buying coffee at the local Village Java. She is the best role-model anyone could have. Delia is still having trouble trying to believe that Melinda can see and speak to the dead. She also didn't go by Mel Clancy because she wanted her own identity (SO1E02) What she don't now is that she has a brother who is her enemy. He has got dark forses in his hands. He want to hurt her. He wanna have every spirit stay on Earth.

What we don't know:
What the baby she is expecting can do. (It was mentioned by a ghost it will be able to do more than Melinda.)
Her role in the town( aside from keeping ghost away :>)): She owns a antique store in town.

Family: Husband: Jim Clancy. Mother: Beth Gordon. Father: Paul Eastman, Grandmother (deceased): Mary Ann. Great-Great Grandmother Julia Lee Lucas. Great-Great-Great-Grandmother Tessa Lucas.Other: Gabriel (half-brother, s03e05 she gets Gabriel's records from the hospital he was at she had to send her Birth Certificate to prove she was family for them to release the records) and of course her ghost dog Homer! Also, Melinda is currently expecting a baby boy.

Melinda and Jim's true love: Melinda was lucky enough to find her one true love, Jim. They share a love like you have never seen before. Jim is the first person, other than her grandmother, who actually accepted and believed her gift. Jim was able to accept her for who she really was because he loved her so much. Jim is Melinda's hero, he is the one who is always there for her and protects her. Jim is Melinda's rock!! Melinda loves Jim with all of her heart, she is lost without him. After a long day of dealing with ghosts, it is nice for Melinda to be able to go home and be with Jim!!! Jim is who keeps Melinda sane, his love keeps her grounded. Their love is unbreakable. Melinda was devastated when Jim died but their love will transend death. Which shows you just how strong their love for each other is!!!
