M*A*S*H makes its only venture into the paranormal in this episode, in which the ghost of a dead GI adamantly refuses to accept the fact that he is no longer among the living. Dazed and confused, the spirit of Private James Weston (Kario Salem) looks on as the surgeons of the 4077th try to save the life of his wounded buddy. Naturally, no one can hear or see Weston--with the exception of Klinger (Jamie Farr), who is suffering from a high fever which has temporarily "enhanced" his sixth sense. The last scenes in this compelling drama finds Klinger and Weston carrying on a rambling yet somehow rational conversation about life, death and What Lies Ahead.
