The character is enterin the gate to the afterlife, or perhaps he already entered afterlife; the first person he meets (and often, the only kind of person he meets) is someone he had known who had died before him.

If the show has an official Grim Reaper then he will appear instead, and this trope will not be mentioned. However, sometimes it can work on both levels: the Reaper takes the character to the next world, and the ghosts of dead friends and family escort him further from that point.
