In the premiere season of the paranormal drama, wife and mother Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) begins to see the good that can come from her gift of being able to communicate with the dead and foresee certain events. The series is based on the real-life experiences of self-proclaimed medium Allison DuBois. As the series opens, Allison gets a job working for Phoenix DA Manuel Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) and has a dream about a murder in Texas. Initially, her husband Joe (Jake Weber) attributes her visions to stress. To prove his point, he submits the details of what Allison saw to various law-enforcement agencies, and he's surprised when the dream relates to a real case. Devalos soon introduces Allison to Det. Lee Scanlon (David Cubitt), who is dealing with the aftermath of an apparent murder-suicide involving his sister and brother-in-law. Scanlon is reluctant to let Allison help at first, but then he sees she really does have a paranormal gift. Soon, Allison learns she's not the only family member with the gift: Her middle daughter Bridgette (Maria Lark) gets a new playmate who turns out to be a little boy who's been dead for several years. Later, oldest daughter Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva) dreams of a young girl being held captive by an ogre. Allison thinks this is nothing more than a nightmare, but Ariel does some investigating and discovers it's something more. Eventually, Allison helps Ariel decode the dream and they find that a young girl really is missing. At one point, Allison has a vision about the death of her brother Michael (Ryan Hurst), a soldier in Afghanistan. She's terrified the dream's going to come true, but then her brother turns up at her doorstep for a visit, and he has some secrets he's been hiding. Other cases Allison works on in Season 1 involve a serial killer, a wrongly convicted man and a murder from the 1960s.
In Season 2 of the paranormal drama, time plays tricks on spiritual medium Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) as she has many dreams involving the past, as well as dreams in which incidents from the past result in an altered present. But first, the second season picks up with the conclusion of Season 1's final episode: Capt. Push (Arliss Howard) is still in a coma and Allison is trying to decipher confusing messages to help stop a serial killer. Soon after, Allison starts having dreams set in the past, including one that takes place in a mental institution in 1959. A woman committed to the institution claims she is Allison DuBois, living in 2005. Then Allison flashes back to her high-school days, when a friend was seeking fame as a model, and she connects these visions to a present-day missing-person case. Allison later dreams of the unborn son she miscarried 15 years earlier, and imagines what life would be like if he had lived. She also envisions an alternate life in which she becomes the lawyer she originally set out to be. Allison's dreams about her current job working for DA Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) include a disturbing recurring one in which the office staff is murdered. When Devalos runs for reelection, Allison dreams that a murder will ruin his chances. At home, Allison must talk to her daughters about what she does for a living after Bridgette (Maria Lark) inquires about her mom's job for a school assignment. Allison's work continues to affect her family, such as when the spirit of a doctor (who was seen in Season 1) returns and targets daughter Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva). Season 2 guest stars include David Carradine and Kelsey Grammer, who is one of the series' executive producers. In Allison's visions, Grammer appears as the Angel of Death, and in her waking life he's a shady businessman.
In the third season of this paranormal drama, a challenging case involving a possible serial killer has Allison (Patricia Arquette) working with FBI criminal profiler Edward Cooper (Kurtwood Smith) for the first time. Cooper's very skeptical about Allison's skills, especially when her visions differ from his findings. Allison bonds much better with Debra (Neve Campbell), a woman who becomes her new friend, but who unfortunately winds up in jeopardy. Allison's husband, Joe (Jake Weber), also lands in a dangerous situation when a disgruntled former coworker of his returns to the office and takes his anger out in a violent way. Meanwhile, Joe has to help Allison through an identity crisis when she wakes up one day and believing she's an entirely different person.
The fourth season of this paranormal drama finds Allison (Patricia Arquette) dealing with the consequences of having her psychic abilities exposed to the public: She's banished from her job at the DA's office and her relationship with Scanlon (David Cubitt) deteriorates, so she works with private investigator Cynthia Keener (Angelica Huston) instead. Eventually, Allison's visions shed light on a troubling part of Cynthia's past. A troubling thing happens to Allison when a young deaf girl gets kidnapped: Allison loses her hearing. Meanwhile, Joe (Jake Weber) looks for a new job; and his mother (Kathy Baker) comes for a visit and reveals a secret to Allison, who struggles with keeping the secret from Joe.
The fifth season of this paranormal drama opens with Allison (Patricia Arquette) returning to working at the DA's office, but eventually she accepts a new job with a Fortune 500 company. She enjoys her new luxurious lifestyle, but things take an ugly turn when the company's founder (David Morse) wants her to predict business trends for him and forbids her from sharing her visions with others. At one point this season, Allison envisions the end of the world, and later she works with the ghost of FBI agent Cooper (Kurtwood Smith) and finds herself questioning his true motives. However, something truly disturbing occurs when a demonic stalker threatens her family and then invades her visions, rendering them unreliable.
In the sixth season of this paranormal drama, which aired on CBS for the first time instead of NBC, Allison (Patricia Arquette) awakens from her coma following her brain surgery. Initially she struggles with the aftermath of her surgery and its effects on both her physical and psychic abilities. However, her visions do return: At one point she sees mysterious symbols, and later she sees numbers on people's foreheads. In a Halloween episode, Allison has nightmares in which she finds herself in scenes from the classic horror film "Night of the Living Dead." Meanwhile, as Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva) finishes her senior year of high school, she meets a ghost who might help her get into the college, and then she finds herself in a time warp.
Family members, both living and dead, figure prominently in the seventh and final season of this paranormal drama: Alison (Patricia Arquette) is concerned about her brother (David Arquette, stepping in the role originated by Ryan Hurst) after she dreams about him; Joe (Jake Weber) visits his ailing mother (Kathy Baker) in the hospital; Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva) communicates with her late grandfather as she prepares to head off to college; and Scanlon (David Cubitt) is troubled by a recurring dream about his deceased brother. The series finale features both a seven-year flash-forward and a 41-year jump in time.
