As we find out more about Allison's relationship with her mother and grandmother when she was younger, the whole situation bears an uncanny resemblance to the relationship between Melinda Gordon and her mother and grandmother in CBS's Ghost Whisperer. Both mothers do not believe that their daughters have any special abilities (although it was eventually revealed that Melinda's mother did indeed believe in her daughter's abilities), and both mothers try to get the idea out of their daughter's heads. Also, both mothers are separated from their husbands, and the husband is cast in a negative light in both situations. On the other hand, both Melinda and Allison had grandmothers who believed in their abilities, and both Melinda and Allison's mothers disagreed with the ideas the grandmothers put into their granddaughter's heads.
