Highpoints: Isabel the Christmas Nazi. Max and Liz bond. Michael and Maria finally hit it off.
Lowpoints: The sick kid is Brodie's. The dead stalker.

You know it's going to be good when the trailer at the WB website makes the hair on your arms stand up.

The gang is in the middle of the Christmas season. Isabel takes Christmas very seriously. So seriously in fact that I thought for a minute that it wasn't actually Isabel and that her evil twin had returned. But man, it was funny. The others are a little more Bah-Humbug than her. Micheal is trying to pick a good gift for Maria and decides on what every girlfriend wants - a new bumper for her car. Not! Max is just his usual brooding self and the Valenti's, plus Tess, are busy buying frozen turkey dinners. Sounds like a quirky little holiday special until... Max and Mike watch a man push his daughter out of the path of a speeding car and die in the process.

The next thing you know the dead guy is stalking Max. I had a problem with this because it was just too Sixth Sense. I kept expecting Max to blubber "I see dead people." I think his conscience alone could have spawned the storyline. They didn't need a dead stalker.

Anyway, racked with guilt over the fact that he could have used his power to save the guy, Max decides he needs to save someone - anyone. Maria discovers that Brodie has a daughter who is dying of cancer. A little too perfect huh? I mean we never heard squat about Brodie's family before, let alone that he has a daughter. And where has this little kid been while Daddy is off being posessed by aliens?

Anyway, Micheal is - as always - against the idea. Still, he is the one to go with Max to Phoenix where Sydney (Brodie's daughter) is in the hospital. Max's not only saves Sydney but all the other kids in her room too - nearly killing himself in the process.It was amazing.

But all is well that ends well and this one ended very well. Micheal and Maria exchange gifts and he scores (Thanks to Isabel buying him a back-up gift). Max attends church service with Liz and the others. A very warm and fuzzy episode for all.

Foreshadowing: Liz and Max's final hand-holding scene is the beginning of another beginning.
