DLM: Info On The Final Two
'DeadGirlWalking' has returned, with spoilers for the final two episodes of the 'Dead Like Me' season. Some interesting events in the second to last episode, titled 'Always'. While the final episode is a Halloween-themed 'All Saints'.
Just a reminder as well, the new season of 'Dead Like Me' begins tomorrow night on 'Showtime'.

Dead Like Me: Always (2.14)
Okay, got some info on the last two episodes of the season. In the 14th - 'Always', Rube finally finds the person who he was looking for and it is his daughter. There are some flashbacks and I think we find out how Rube died. All I know is that he leaves his family for some reason and he has a gun.
There is another reaper that works at the nursing home where Rosie is. Penny, the reaper, also knows Rube and why he's there. She ripples Rosie while Rube is talking to her, and she passes on while Rube is sitting with her.
Mason has turned into a wreck, he's bumming food off people and sleeping in the Der Waffle Haus. Even though the staff always seems to hate Mason, I guess they get together and give him some money to help him. George also decides to take him home to stay with her and Daisy, but Daisy isn't thrilled about this. I don't think anyone else knows what happened with them.
My friend also mentioned that the dog from last season, the one that her family had, dies. They have to go to a funeral parlor and get a coffin, and then they have a funeral for the dog. My friend didn't say if the pet reaper was involved.
They didn't say a lot about George, just something about her going through the old files at 'Happy Time' and finding her file from when she first went there.
Dead Like Me: All Saints (2.15)
For the last episode, it's going to be a Halloween one. They all have a list of very strange appointments, all that occur at 59 minutes past the hour. There is this serial killer that is stalking George's old neighborhood and is killing people every hour.
The killer is this creepy guy who goes around in white sneakers and strangles people as they answer the door. The reapers don't realize this until they all show up in the same neighborhood. I don't know if they figure out what is going on, I do know that Daisy goes out dressed as a cop and somebody recognizes her from her Hollywood days. Roxy ends up escorting a group of kids with Delores. Delores loves Halloween so I guess she chaperones kids every year. Some of the others discover a suburban brothel.
But while this is all happening, the killer is going about his rounds. Since this is where George used to live, I asked if someone in her family is killed, but my friend didn't know. She did tell me that George is the one with the post-it for the killer. When she was a kid, she ran into him on Halloween and saw a graveling in his house. He recognizes her when she knocks on his door, but she is so mad, when she reaps him she doesn't even wait to see how he dies.
The final bit of info is that Crystal is snooping around in the computer files, trying to pull up George's original 'Happy Time' records.
From the looks of it, it does appear that the big season-arc finale will be resolved in Episode 14. The Halloween episode sounds more like a themed-episode that may not have much to do with setting up next season's arc. Then again, with such limited information, it's hard to say.
I don't know what has happened to Trip, the love interest that seemed to appear several episodes earlier. After George reaped his father, and the funeral in the following episode, there seems to be nothing else. Which is surprising, since it seemed so well setup for him to discover George's true identity.
Also not much on the Daisy/Mason storyline it seems in these episodes. Mason is now living with Daisy and George, so we may have to see how this plays out next Season.« hide more

DLM: Episode 12 and 13 Information
The emails from 'DeadGirlWalking' have been sporadic lately, but she did just write with new information on 'Dead Like Me' episodes 12 ('Forget Me Not') and 13 ('Last Call'). I can also add that the title of the 14th episode will be 'Always'.
read more »
Dead Like Me: Forget Me Not (2.12)
Going to have to apologize again for the delay in getting you this info, my friend is getting real tough about giving me the goods. I have this feeling she's keeping something big from me, but I have no clue what.
I do know that in Episode 12 we meet this new reaper, she's a nurse named Maya. I guess there are these different gigs a reaper can get, and she's one of those who reaps the people who die of natural causes. Rube takes George to the hospital to reap a woman with Alzheimer's, and this is where George meets Maya. George runs into problems because after she dies, the woman still doesn't realize that she's dead (she forgot already). Rube in the meantime wants to get more information from Maya on this woman that he's been trying to find, and although she didn't tell me this, I'm almost certain it's his daughter.
Daisy has a boyfriend, or is seeing that guy who was doing the reality show. This makes Mason really jealous, and when Mason and Daisy go to a boxing place to reap someone, her boyfriend and Mason fight over Daisy. I guess Mason gets knocked out or something like that, but then something unexpected happens. Daisy and Mason sleep together it seems.
George has to go to her sister's school, I think that Reggie is dating the guy who brought the Komodo Dragon to class earlier in the season, and he's in this spelling bee. The father of another kid gets really mad at the judge and throws a dictionary at him, which kills him. The guy Reggie is seeing wins.
Dead Like Me: Last Call (2.13)
I've got barely anything for this one, just that the gang has to reap a busload of sports fans and George reaps this young military academy cadet. She's around George's age, and dies really stupidly while trying to prove herself to the male cadets.
Very interesting spoilers, especially in regards to both Rube and Daisy/Mason. I believe that what we are seeing is George's influence on the others. Still no word on Trip, perhaps that is the big secret that her friend is not mentioning. Also very little Happy Time info, perhaps these stories are taking a back seat while we focus on the Reapers themselves. By my count, there are only one or two episodes left in this season, so it will be interesting to see how this all turns out.

DLM: Episode 10 and 11
'DeadGirlWalking' wrote with spoilers for two more episodes of 'Dead Like Me'. The info she has is very brief, and only gives a small outline of what may be happening in the episode.
read more »
Dead Like Me: Death Defying (2.10)
Sorry for not having a lot for these two, my friend is kind of reluctant to reveal everything they know. I think there are some big things happening that nobody is talking about.
In the first episode, all I know about George is that she has to reap this guy who likes jumping off buildings. I guess he does it for thrills and calls himself Kid Icarus, has a big following. He gets George and Mason really mad, because he tells the audience that all the grim reapers can kiss his butt. George almost doesn't reap him until he dies, but ripples him at the last minute. Then she gets really mad at his soul and starts yelling at him. The crowd and his girlfriend see her yelling at thin air.
Daisy has to reap some tough guy at a bar, I guess he's going to die in a really bizarre way. Rube goes to the city archives, he's looking for information on a woman. My friend thinks it could be his wife or daughter.
Joy and Reggie discover that they have a really cute grocery delivery guy. I think Joy asks him out on a date. Then there is some kind of mix-up with whether Reggie is supposed to be with Clancy or Joy on the weekend of the date.
Dead Like Me: Ashes To Ashes (2.11)
This one I have even less on. All I know for sure is that Reggie falls in with the Goth crowd at school. She's befriended by a group of them, who think she's cool because of the way her sister died. They have a sleepover at Reggie's house, and Joy tries to be encouraging. Which kind of makes Reggie mad, as it's supposed to upset her instead.
George has to reap a homeless man, which starts a whole thing about having him properly buried. I don't think the soul wants it done, but the person who runs the shelter they were in. It will cost $400, and George really doesn't know what to do.
Daisy ends up getting back into acting, she appears on a Reality TV show.
That's all that she passed along, and there really isn't much to go on. I asked about Trip, if he appears in these episodes, and she said that's one of the questions that her friend wouldn't answer. Since there is so little 'George' time in this info, hard to say.« hide more

DLM: Info For Episodes 2.8 and 2.9
'DeadGirlWalking', who has been MIA for the past few weeks, dropped a line to say that they are still 'undead and well', but only just recently heard about two upcoming episodes. Looks as if there may be a new recurring, who will double as a love-interest for George. In addition, we see the return of one reaper from last season.

Dead Like Me: The Escape Artist (2.8)
George's assignment is in some rich country club, and there was no way that George was going to be able to get in. But this really cute guy gets her in, and they really start hitting it off. His name is Trip, and George thinks he's a reporter because he works for the newspaper. George follows her heart and as they are talking kisses him. But when a waiter comes up and addresses him by his last name, George realizes he's the one she's there to reap. His nickname is Trip, but his real name is John. George has a hard time dealing with this, and is in the process of rippling him, when he introduces her to his father, John Junior - so Trip is John the Third. George realizes it's the father she's there for, and she stops rippling Trip. He senses something has passed between them. Then she reaps the father, and while George stands with John Jr. watching Trip try to help his father, John Jr. tells her that it's obvious they like each other. He tells her to say something to Trip before they leave, which George tries to do, but it comes out all wrong. Very conflicted, George and John Jr. leave.
Roxy and Mason are looking forward to their assignments, since it involves getting on a flight to Cancun. Since the time of death is while the flight is in the air, why not have a good time when they get to their destination. The plane gets grounded, and they end up having to do their reaps before it takes off. They have to reap a newlywed groom, who dies from a peanut allergy while making out with a stewardess in the bathroom. The other victim is the stewardess, the bride kills her when she catches them.
The best part is what happens to Reggie. At her school they are having a 'show-and-tell' event. One of her classmates brings in his Komodo Dragon to show the class, and not only do Rube and Daisy show up, but the kid reaper from last season. The dragon gets loose and the kid reaper reaps the dragon. The dragon is killed by a janitor, but not before it poisons him and he dies. I guess that's why Rube and Daisy were there. What is cool is that Reggie knows that something is up with the kid reaper, and she follows him after he leaves. I guess they talk and he tells her that he knows George.
Dead Like Me: Be Still My Heart (2.9)
Daisy has a very difficult reap, she has to ripple the soul of a woman who has been seeing a married man. She gets into the hotel room and ripples the woman, but curious about what is going to happen she hides in the closet. She ends up watching as the man kills the woman. Before she goes, she leaves clues so the police can catch the killer. Roxy also ends up there since it's a crime scene, but for some reason Daisy didn't take the woman to her final destination. Roxy has to take her soul out of the room.
George takes Mason and crashes John Jr's funeral at the country club, she wants to see Trip again. They still have a connection, but Mason gets mad at her when she tell Trip her real name. She had told him it was George from the start, but when he asked for her last name she told him Lass. This is going to be a big deal I think, because in the previous episode, George thought he was a reporter. He really is the guy who writes the obituaries. Before another kiss can occur, George has to go to her assignment for the day. It's a same-sex marriage, and she has to reap one of the attendees. He gets smushed while trying to catch the bouquet.
There's also a funny scene at Happy Time, where it seems that one of the temps has a heart attack. But it's really just Delores running a training drill. There's a weird exchange between Crystal and George, I guess Crystal may know what George really is, but my friend wasn't certain. I guess it may be a weird exchange because Crystal is so weird.
It appears that Trip is a recurring characters, and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. He certainly is going to remember who George is and that she died, will she be forced to reveal the truth. It will probably a major plot for the final run of episodes.« hide more

DLM: Episode 7 Info
"DeadGirlWalking" wrote again, passing along information on the 7th episode of 'Dead Like Me: Rites of Passage'
read more »
Dead Like Me: Rites Of Passage (2.07)
I guess the big news in this episode is that we meet Joy's mother. Her name is Phyllis and she shows up to help Joy and Reggie back at the house. Which is kind of confusing, because I thought they were moving downtown. I guess that Joy is now working downtown, so maybe they haven't moved yet. Phyllis helps out by watching Reggie while Joy is at work, and they actually start talking about what happened to George. Joy won't talk about it at all, and Reggie is really happy when Phyllis starts doing all these George-related things with her (like a buddhist ritual and going to where George died.
George's story this week starts at 'Happy Time', where she finds out she has to reap this young rock star. My friend says that while researching her reapee, she finds out that other people there are big fans. Which causes Delores to think that George might be a lesbian. I didn't understand all of that, because my friend said there's also some reference to a cat, which is really similar to something that happened with a cat in Buffy (sorry, I only watched one episode of that so I have no idea what they are talking about).
Anyway, Mason has to also reap someone at the same place George is going. It's a big televised concert at the record studio, with lots of bands and fans and groupies. Mason tries to get them in, with no success. So Roxy ends up getting George into the studio. Mason keeps getting thrown out until this goth girl senses that he's a reaper. She's with this Marilyn Manson like singer, called Bandar, and she gets him inside because she thinks it's cool that he's a dead guy.
George is having problems getting to see the rock star, his name is Kyle. She bumps into his ex-girlfriend Jeannie, who works on getting George to see him. Mason is trying to deny that he's a reaper, but eventually starts spilling the beans to the goth folks.
So George has to reap Kyle, and she keeps coming close and just misses touching him. Then just as he goes onstage she manages to reap him. Mason thinks he's supposed to reap Bandar, but it turns out he has the wrong guy. In the big climax, right after Kyle stops singing, Jeannie shoots and kills him. She's about to kill the girlfriend when Roxy shoots her. Then Mason dives onto the stage and reaps Jeannie right before she dies.
At the very end, we find that everyone is having this big candlelight vigil for Kyle, and George finds that Reggie and Phyllis have left her a single candle where she died.
Oops, almost forgot Daisy. She goes back to see the priest she saw earlier this season, Father Matthias. It's kind of sad because she has to reap him, but before she does she explains who she is and why she's there. I guess he had lost a bit of his faith, and this helps him right before he moves on.
Sounds interesting. I am confused about the 'Buffy' comment, I hope to maybe turn up some more on that. I also asked if the 'Goth Girl' is the same one we saw last season, played by Jewel Staite. 'DeadGirlWalking' says that they were casting for it, so it's not going to be the same person.« hide more

DLM: Episode 6 Info
'DeadGirlWalking' has passed on information about the sixth episode of 'Dead Like Me'. Titled 'In-Escrow', it seems to focus on the characters making changes in the way they are living their lives.

Dead Like Me: In-Escrow (2.6)« hide more
Early on, George reaps a hockey coach. He happens to be yelling at this cute guy, Andy, who is around her age. The coach has a Zamboni accident.
The Happy Time story is about George having to pick from three temps, who will get a prime job at a new drug company. Her choices are Anton (an immigrant), Michael (who has a bizarre disability), and Margaret (who is a nice middle-aged woman). I guess we find out that she picks Anton. Later in the episode, all the reapers have to go to a company to do a mass reaping. Anton is one of the victims when one of the employees goes postal.
Mason's bit has him reaping a famous rock star from the sixties, who is about to overdose. I guess he was Mason's hero and was part of the reason why Mason died from drugs.
Daisy is getting more and more serious about church, even stealing a cross from one of her souls. She confesses this to a priest. It makes Roxy mad because the family of the reapee wants the cross back. Daisy doesn't want to give it back.
Joy is looking for a new place to live and isn't sure what kind of a place she wants. Reggie really likes this downtown loft, but Joy isn't so sure. But the landlord convinces her to come back and see it at night. Joy leaves Reggie with a babysitter, who ditches her after Joy goes downtown. Joy and the landlord hit it off I think, because she stays there way too long but decides to sign the lease.
The final scene goes along with the opener. George goes back to the rink to see Andy.

DLM: Episode 5 Info
'DeadGirlWalking' checks in again with spoilers for Episode Five - 'Hurry'. It's short on specifics, so a lot of details are likely missing for the episode.

Dead Like Me: Hurry (2.5)« hide more
Just heard about the latest episode of Dead Like Me that they are working on, it's called 'Hurry'. My friend says that it's all about people who are too concerned about time or delays or getting things over with.
George's bit is all at 'Happy Time' or at least what she told me. George shows up late and Delores is all freaked because some management consultant is checking them out. She's making everyone work their butts off and she gets George to help out. There is supposed to be this guy there that is really funny, everyone knows him as The Ted. But he gets fired later in the show. The consultant takes a big interest in George too.
Roxy has to find a french woman at the airport. There is this delay with the baggage, and the woman is really mad that she has to wait. Roxy has to wait with her, because I guess she gets killed by her baggage.
Mason is busy chasing after this bike messenger, Herm. He owes Mason money, but the real reason Mason is after him is because he's going to reap him. So he spends the day trying to run him down on a bicycle.
Rube has to go to the post office for a special letter that's being sent to him. His problem is that the line is like miles long and moving slowly and he gets stuck there all day before he can get his letter.
Daisy is trying to find this guy to reap at a local dating service. It's one of those speed date places where you see like 30 people in an hour, 2 minutes each. Her assignment is someone who has a name that starts with J. and it seems all the guys are named Jeff, John, James, Joseph.
Oh and my friend says that the divorce papers are signed in this episode.

DLM: Episode 4
I receive a small bit of information on the fourth episode of 'Dead Like Me' from 'DeadGirlWalking'. The episode is to be titled, 'Shallow End' and appears to feature an interesting revelation about George.
read more »
Dead Like Me: Shallow End (2.4)
You had talked about how George's story seems to revolve around Happy Time this season, and my friend agrees. She says that this time we find out that George/Millie has a fan club at Happy Time. I guess all the office geeks are fascinated by her, and one of them has a major crush on her. George likes him too and somehow she figures out that people like her more when she's rude to them.
The reason why that's important is because there's this flashback to when George was young. George goes to a pool with one of her friends. Some really popular girls are there, and they try to get George to do something to her friend. George is too nice and doesn't do it, but they ask her friend the same thing and she does do something.
She pushes George into the pool and she hits her head. George is going to drown and as she sinks, she sees two gravelings come out of the drain and look at her. Then they change their mind and go back, because the parents at the pool save George.
In the present Mason goes to the same pool, where he has an appointment with an older man. He has some kind of diving accident, and Mason has problems because the guy doesn't want to move on right away. He ends up taking him to see Rube.
There's also something going on with Daisy, like she's trying to find God. My friend said that she's started praying and maybe even going to church. She also said in an earlier episode she's admiring crosses and one of the souls gives her one of theirs.
Not much about George's family, except that Joy and Reggie go shopping. I guess Joy is looking to appear a little less married.
Not much to add in the way of thoughts. I do find it interesting that we are not only getting a lot of 'George at Happy Time', but also quite a bit of 'Young George'. The info about Daisy is also intriguing, have to wonder where that storyline is going.« hide more

DLM: Episode 3 Info
'DeadGirlWalking' has checked in again, with information for the third episode of season two, 'Ghost Story'.
read more »
Dead Like Me: Ghost Story (2.3)
At the start of the episode George and Daisy are at a gym. They have an appointment to reap twin sisters and while they are there George is looking at pictures. I guess she has been getting some comments from Delores that her cube is dull.
So later in the episode, Delores is mad at George, because of this and other things. She's not been a team player even after Delores promoted her. There is a retreat that everyone is going to go on, but George doesn't want to go. But then the guy who is running the retreat talks her into it. They are all going out camping in the woods.
I guess this works out, because George has an appointment close to the campsite. They are two drunk hunters. I'm not sure why but Rube shows up at the retreat. While George is out reaping the two hunters, he's telling this ghost story around the campfire. It's not much of a story from what I can tell, my friend was explaining it to me and it didn't make much sense.
The scenes with George's family are about Joy selling the house. A couple come to see the house and Joy wants Reggie to be nice. Reggie ends up telling the couple that George's ghost is haunting the house. It looks like they won't be buying it.
The other story is with Daisy and Mason. When Rube leaves, he's worried that Mason is going to mess things up as usual. What happens? Mason loses his post-it. Daisy and him end up breaking into Rube's apartment to see if the appointment is written down somewhere. They find a desk stuffed with post-its and must find the information they need. Mason finds his appointment just in time.
Interesting information, this is the third episode of the season which has revolved around events at 'Happy Time'. It seems that the story arc this season is going to focus more on George's relationship with 'Happy Time', rather than her relationship with her family. Which makes sense, as both the Reapers and 'Happy Time' are her new family. It also appears that Daisy and Mason may be getting a bit tighter, but it's hard to know for certain from the limited info that I'm getting.

DLM: Episode Two Info
'DeadGirlWalking' has provided us with some information on 'Dead Like Me' Episode Two. Called 'The Ledger', the info is a bit sketchy but does have some interesting revelations.

Dead Like Me: The Ledger (2.2) - Courtesy of DeadGirlWalking
Early on, George's bike is stolen, so she has no way of getting to work. George goes to the police station to file a report about her stolen bike. The cops really don't care, it's just a bike. It doesn't help that George is in a hurry because she's going to be late for work.
When George gets to work at Happy Time, she finds out that everyone is in a special meeting. They brought in someone to talk about office theft. She and the speaker kind of get into it.
George later goes off to her reaper assignment, which is at a grocery store. There, she participates in a demonstration of a new food processor. The guy who is running it gets his tie caught in the machine and gets processed. George takes his car after he ascends.
George goes to her old house, which is on the market. She gets a realtor to show it to her and when she goes nobody is at the house. George sits a while in her old room.
A couple other things. I guess George's parents are getting divorced. That's why the house is up for sale. Mason has been acting strange for a while. I think he's stopped drinking and is scamming people out of their money with some kind of shell game and later he's selling those food processors. I guess they were in the car?
Not much info, but it's interesting that it looks as if Clancy and Joy are getting divorced. Which means that Season Two will continue to follow the story of George's family.« hide more

DLM: Season Two Spoilers
Just received the first information on the new season of 'Dead Like Me', coming from a completely unexpected and new source. Though I'm usually skeptical of new sources, I was able to get some additional verification. This all looks solid. Read on for a look at the first episode of Season Two, 'Send In The Clown'.
read more »
Dead Like Me: Send In The Clown (2.1) - Courtesy of DeadGirlWalking
It begins with George as a child, she's at this outdoor market with her mother. There's a woman who sells flowers there, Dierdre, who talks to them. Then the scene kinda shifts to the present, and George is back at the market with Mason and Daisy. There's going to be a gas explosion and all of them are popping souls. George finds Dierdre, who is still working there. She's her assignment. The workers can't find the leak. A few minutes later, one of those gravelings does and the flower cart explodes. Dierdre wants George to help her clean up the mess, but George gets upset and runs off.
George goes to work and is called into Delores office. She had to hire one of the owners nephews, Brennan. She wants George to train him. Brennan comes in and he may be dumb, but he's cute.
George is trying to explain how to use a phone to Brennan, but in her head, she's thinking about how hot Brennan is. Daisy calls, but Brennan doesn't really have the hang of the phone. He may be distracted because he's way into George, and asks her out.
She first says yes, but then decides to say no, until another girl in the office makes a pass at him. George realizes she has to make a move first, and pretends to faint. As he's reviving her, she kisses him. Delores sees this, but doesn't say anything.
Rube and Mason are trying to find their appointment at a child's birthday party. Rube's not happy because a child is going to die. They go into the party, and pass themselves off as a clown act. Mason dresses up like a clown, making balloons for the kids. He's in a bad mood and pretty much being a jerk. The birthday girl's father complains, and Mason realizes that he's the one who's going to die. After he takes his soul, the guy gets really upset because Mason knew he was going to die, and ruined his daughter's party.
At the end of the episode, George breaks her date with Brennan. I don't know if Delores got mad or something, but George isn't too upset about it.
P.S. Roxy's around too, but I think she's just doing her normal stuff.
Seems like a regular episode, not a lot happening that's really noteworthy. In fact, it almost feels more like an reintroduction to the show and characters, in order to help transition any new viewers they may get for the premiere.
No word on when we are going to see this actually hit the airwaves.« hide more

DLM: Episode Synopsises-es
On the offical MGM 'Dead Like Me' site
, they've put up mini-summaries for all the rest of the episodes of the first season. These will follow below, but I wanted to touch on a couple of future and past spoilers for the show first
One of the hardest things coming into a show late, and beginning to rank spoilers after just having seen it for the first time, is that there really isn't much to go on. Which is why the spoilers for the first season of 'Dead Like Me' are few and far between.
The other issue, is not knowing how much tweaking will actually go on behind the scenes. As it stands right now, I've been unable to compare info I've gotten against the actual episode. Which is why I wasn't too surprised that the spoiler 'George saves Charlotte from killing herself', really didn't turn out to be true. The original source was FilmJerk, who pulled that info from casting notices, and in the end it's turns out that they didn't use that plot in the episode. I've also gotten conflicting info about 'Unfinished Business', but the good news is that finally I'll be able to compare spoilage against what actually ends up happening (so don't expect all the spoilers for this episode to be correct either).
In any event, it appears that 'Dead Like Me' will go through a bit more tweaking from early scripts to final product, than other shows have in the past. With 'BtVS', oftentimes the spoilers didn't vary much from the final product (well, with the exception of Kennedy, she was not what I was expected from the early news I had about her character). So bear with me as we go through a few spoiler bumps for the first season of 'Dead Like Me' and more than likely, 'Tru Calling'
Now onto the synopsises-es.

The Bicycle Thief
After George informs Delores that she's found another higher-paying job and will be leaving Happy Time, a bereft Delores organizes a going away party. Mason takes the souls of a gay, together-forever couple, while Daisy is called to task by the soul of a young painter who won't cross over. And when JD the dog runs away from the Lass home, Reggie, Joy and Clancy blame each other as they search for the glue of the family.
Unable to sleep and reflecting on her life (and afterlife), George heads to the Waffle Haus where she finds the reapers filling out evaluations under Rube's watchful eye. After glimpsing a post-it which lists her family's address, George disobeys Rube and rushes to the Lass house.
When the Gravelings take the day off, our reapers are stuck cleaning up an ensuing filing fiasco. Although the filing gets underway at Der Waffle Haus, George convinces Rube to move the operation after hours to Happy Time, where computers and modern technology are available. Meanwhile, George is distressed to see Joy, Clancy and Reggie heading to the family cabin without her. George reflects on the family's happier times at the cabin, as we see her parent's marriage fall apart.
Rest In Peace
The Lass family is preparing to visit George's gravesite, where her headstone is being set. Meanwhile, Rube pops a soul of a yoga teacher who, surprisingly, can't wait to embrace the great beyond. Elsewhere, Mason embraces a young woman who puts an end to his sexual dry streak after he divulges his undead secret identity. And back at Happy Time, George asks Delores for her job back. In the end, the reapers gather at George's gravesite.
Pretty much fits what I spoiled, with a few changes here and there. So not too bad for the first season, but not perfect. That should about do it for any new spoilage for Season One of the show, hopefully it won't be too long before we start hearing info about Season Two.« hide more

Some info on upcoming episodes of 'Dead Like Me'
A cancelled assignment leads to George getting involved with the soul she was supposed to harvest, that of a cute young schizophrenic (Tygh Runyan) who claims he can see the gravelings. Also: George must mentor a new employee (Tegan Moss) at Happy Time.
Rube takes a job as a short-order cook at a waffle house; and George picks up a pet.
One strange thing is that the second episode, 'A Cook', was actually supposed to air after 'Sunday Mornings' according to the info that I had seen. I've verified the date at the official site for the show, so I'm going to change the order on the Spoiler Page.

Dead Like Me Tidbits
Some news about 'Dead Like Me'.
One good thing about being in Vancouver this week, in addition to the Molson Indy race, is that Jewel Staite (who played Kaylee on 'Firefly'), is apparently in town shooting a guest spot for the 'Dead Like Me' finale. According to info posted at Fan Forum
by LJC, she's going to be playing a goth girl. Whom according to the info that I have, is going to have a close encounter with Mason in a closet at the record store that she works at. Apparently, Reapers really turn her character on. This is the storyline where Mason is trying to pick up multiple women in a record store, and Daisy is coaching him on his technique.
I wanted to mention two 'Dead Like Me' sites that I've visited recently, both of which are called 'Dead Like Me Online'. Dead Like Me Online (1)
is a nice site, and one of the first one's that I found when researching spoilers for the show. I also received an email from the owner of Dead Like Me Online (2)
which also has a lot of good information. Be sure to check out both sites.

Finale Spoilers Already
From beginning to end in just a week. Just started covering 'Dead Like Me', and already it appears that info on the finale is trickling in. The title is likely to be 'Rest In Peace' and I have a few other tidbits as well. So I'm going to cover what little info that I have on the final run of episodes for now, and as mentioned earlier I'm still trying to dig up info on the more recent ones.
This info is a bit sketchy and very subject to change, I would rank all of these as 'Possible' leaning towards 'Likely'.

(Note: numbering may or may not be correct, depending on how you count the Pilot was either Episode 1, or Episode 1 was 'Dead Girl Walking')
- Episode 9
An older woman is 'reaped', but has valuable business information that she wants to pass along to her son, so he can retain control of the company. The Reapers (George, Mason, and Daisy) concoct various ways, including a seance, so they can pass along this info. The mother, Mary Beth, won't move on until she's done this.
The Bicycle Thief
- Episode 10
Lots of storylines in this one, but the main one appears to revolve around George getting a full-time job, apparently to buy a bicycle (a Cannondale - and how much does it suck that this is the second year in the row with no Cipollini in the Tour de France). She finds a job that pays well and most of the episode is devoted to her going-away party at Happy Time. We meet a number of the staff, including a young girl who's happiness is chemically-induced. In the end, George's new job doesn't end up to be all that it's cracked up to be, as her new boss has taken digital communications to a new level (he does everything via Instant Messenger - everything).
Meanwhile, Daisy reaps a young artist, who refuses to move on (known in the business as a 'straggler'), while Mason goes to reap an older same-sex couple and perhaps gets more involved than he would normally in their deaths.Nighthawks
- Episode 11
Not much on this one, other than it appears to be time for annual evaluations for the Reapers. It appears to take place completely at night, and one scene has Rube 'reaping' George's milkman.
- Episode 12
Not much for this one either, other than it appears that after the evaluations, Rube decides it's time for some fun, and the Reapers take the day off
Rest In Peace
- Episode 13 (Finale)
George goes back to Happy Time to get her job back, but Delores is not open to this at all. That is, until her cat ends up getting very sick. George goes with Delores to the vet, where we discover that it's not just humans who get reaped (I believe the cat will be alright, but George meets a rather young reaper). Meanwhile, Rube seems to accidentally reap his yoga instructor, and Daisy seems to be coaching Mason on how pick up women (it would appear that he may be a virgin). It looks like the first season of the series will end at George's grave, at the service where her headstone is placed.
