** Ghosts see what they want to see and that scene was intended to show that he was finally capable of moved on. If he had seen his ring on his finger, that would have implied he still saw himself alive (and thus would never see the real ring) or still saw himself as married (and thus not ready to move on and probably censoring out the experience in his own head).

*** Probably also depends on how they died. Kind of hard to censor away a hanging.

** Note that we have only Cole as a reference and in his case, he's encountered mostly the angry with a few nice ones. It might be true that any strong emotion would cause the chill effect and he just hadn't had the experience with it.

**Why would she be afraid to get caught playing with puppets? She probably realized her mother was kind and doting when she was ill, but might be cold and cruel if she saw her daughter apparently recovered enough to play and have fun.

*** She also walks in with the tray and sets it down without the cleaner. When she looks at Kyra, Kyra is pretending to be asleep, and that's when she goes to get the cleaner bottle from somewhere we can't see.

** There are lots of people who rarely or never take their wedding ring off. Besides, in Christian thought, a marriage lasts "´till death do them part", implying that no ring on Malcolm's hand meant that the marriage couldn't outlast his death.

*** Probably this, since she's a divorcée from what a appears to be a dead beat, and holds two jobs (as per the conversation during the car accident). I do believe Cole was on Malcom's waiting list (he has notes on the kid previous to their first encounter), but since Malcolm had just been awarded by the city of Philadelphia in the opening scene, it may be plausible that Cole was a pro-bono case.


Added DiffLines:

** I thought that the girl turned on the camera to record the puppet show, rushed to bed to avoid getting caught, left the camera on unwillingly and recorded her mother in flagrante delicto by accident and turned it off afterwards without realizing what it had filmed until after she died.


Added DiffLines:

** Since it seems that Cole was a case on Crowe's waiting list before he got shot (notice Crowe has notes on Sear), Cole was part of Crowe´s unfinished business that troubled him (and related to his death given that Vincent was a similar case), so it would be consistent with the other ghosts´ behavior.

* The TomatoInTheMirror moment seems a bit weird to me. Malcom's wife drops a wedding ring, the camera shows that she's still wearing hers, and a close-up reveals that Malcom... doesn't. But that makes perfect real-world sense if Malcom just wasn't wearing his ring at the time. It seems to me that the reveal would've worked much better if he ''had'' been wearing his ring. The presence of three wedding rings makes no real-world sense, and could've clued Malcom in that his own ring was part of his own fake ghostly form. Am I missing something here?
