This entire 5th episode is the worst I've seen so far. With this segment, I just don't quite know what to say. A bit of a ghost story with a light at the end, but not the kind that leads to death. I never really felt interested in the characters, though a sad event occurs, and it makes you ponder the sequences of events that happen in a day -- if only one small piece was altered...
Either way, I wasn't interested.

A 4 for me. An interesting concept poorly done

I like this story, the ghost of the little girl is eerie and Tony LoBianco gives a good sympathetic performance. The ending doesn't make much sense though, he has no reason for placing his comatose daughter in Sarah's old bed, and then afterwards are we meant to believe the dead girl possesses his daughter? Or is her body now a refuge for both of their souls?

7/10

A sad story, too dragged out even for it being so short. Mr.R, I think you are right, the dead girl did possesss his daughter, but she calls him "daddy", so I think both personalities are active.
This episode is a bit nonsensical, even if she possesses the daughter,she[the daughter] is dying, I do not think the possession of her will stop her from dying. Or are we to believe the father has to live with an undead daughter?
