** Played with in the episode "Shadows", in which Lauren Tyte is a rather shy and pretty much harmless secretary who, due to various corporate malfeasances on the part of her weapons-manufacturer employer, is targeted by numerous assassins. Unfortunately, what these assassins ''don't'' know is that she's also being haunted by a very angry, very vengeful and ''very'' protective spirit who is a lot less harmless...

* ''OneStepBeyond'' had an interesting version - In "The Burning Girl", Alice is a quiet, put-upon young woman accused of starting fires and getting into (sexual) trouble. Fires do start when she's around, but not the way people think, and she doesn't remember what happens. It's only after a row with her aunt and a near-rape by a local that the truth of her pyrokinetic abilities comes out.
