In this fifth season, Allison and her family's world has returned to normalcy, now that both of the Dubois are employed and her abilities are publicly known. With Manuel Devalos (Miguel Sandoval, "Jurassic Park") returning to the D.A.'s office, Allison once again serves as a part-time consultant to his office, using her psychic abilities -- which consist of talking to dead people as well as seeing current and future events in her dreams -- to solve violent and horrifying crimes that baffle Phoenix police and others within the criminal justice system. Jake Weber ("Meet Joe Black") stars as Allison's supportive husband Joe, who is launching his own scientific engineering business. Sofia Vassilieva ("Eloise at the Plaza") and Maria Lark ("10.5") star as Ariel and Bridget, the two eldest Dubois children, both of whom share their mother's abilities to varying degrees. David Cubitt ("10.5: Apocalypse") stars as Detective Lee Scanlon and Madison & Miranda Carabello plays the youngest daughter, Marie Dubois.Click the pics for Rumer Willis's gallery:
