Sheâ€™s baaack!!! Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo returned for a third season last night with two back-to-back new episodes: â€śHomecomingâ€ť and â€śA Medium Surprise.â€ť Season 3 of Long Island Medium (TLC Sundays at 9pm ET/PT) features 16 new episodes, which means the Kleenex box at my house will now be part of my coffee table arrangement for the next eight-plus weeks.
Theresaâ€™s surprise medium-on-the-street spirit interventions are where the show works best. In â€śHomecoming,â€ť a young mother (Vanessa) and her aunt were stopped by Theresa at a local store. Theresa asked about the deaths of Vanessaâ€™s mother and father, and quickly validated the spirit presence by referencing a special rocking chair and the color of her babyâ€™s bedroom (yellow). She also noted Vanessaâ€™s concerns about not â€śfeelingâ€ť her mother anymore. â€śI canâ€™t even tell you how happy I am knowing she is with me and watching over me and my son,â€ť Vanessa shared.
Next up was a most unusual group reading where Theresa connected with a middle-aged woman in when she saw a spirit behind the woman doing the sign of the cross. Apparently, the woman â€” a devout Catholic â€” was reluctant to come to the group reading, unsure if a mediumâ€™s work was accepted in her religion. Theresa explained that the spirit was actually her mother and she was showing the sign of a cross as a way to tell the woman it was OK to be here, as she was about to receive a message that would change her life forever.
Pay attention, for this one was, at first, hard to follow. Theresa also learned through the spirit that the middle-aged woman [I didnâ€™t catch her name] also lost a daughter named Elizabeth at the age of 2. Elizabethâ€™s soul, however, was re-entered into one of her grandchildren. Say what????
Yes. A first on Long Island Medium â€”Â but spirit was telling Theresa that little Elizabethâ€™s soul was re-entered into her granddaughter Alexis (unsure of spelling here), who is now 8. The pained woman cried in acknowledgement, claiming she always knew it was â€śLizzaâ€™s spirit.â€ť The womanâ€™s other daughter [mother of Alexis and sister to Elizabeth],Â who was in attendance, as well, was equally as moved as she described: â€śI felt my sister around me my whole life until my daughter was born.â€ť
Theresa told them: â€śGod has granted your wish by allowing your daughterâ€™s soul to re-enter into one of your grandchildren. â€¦This soul has re-entered into this lifetime and thatâ€™s something that usually doesnâ€™t happen.â€ť
Anyways, hard to top that reading, but Theresa lightened the mood by moving on to another attendee â€” Ginger from Amityville, New York â€” who lost her mother and father. Her spirit connection was validated by the fact that Theresa was able to describe her parentsâ€™ relationship perfectly and that Theresa knew that Ginger still kept her motherâ€™s muumuu dresses.
The second episode of Long Island Medium Season 3, â€śA Medium Surprise,â€ť was more lighthearted as it focused on the Caputo familyâ€™s plans to surprise Theresa for her 45th birthday.
A private reading at Theresa’s house introduced viewers to another mother and daughter who were seeking answers to the death of their daughter/sister, Laura, who lost her 15-year battle with an eating disorder. Theresa was able to validate Lauraâ€™s spiritual presence when she shared what Laura was asking her to tell them both, givingÂ them the answers they needed so they could move on.
Cameras later followed Theresa to a self-serve yogurt shop, where two patrons â€” a mother and teen daughter â€” are interrupted with a spiritual intervention from their husband/father. Theresa amazed â€” validating nicknames, how he died, the spiritâ€™s former record collection, and giving them the message they needed to hear to heal. At a home reading, Theresa also helped a young mother whoÂ lost her husband to an anaphylactic shock brought on by an egg allergy.
The episode concluded with Theresaâ€™s restless feelings being confirmed. â€śIâ€™ve got a very uneasy feeling about tonight â€” something just feels off,â€ť Theresa said. And to make matters worse, her spirit guides were showing her â€śJack squat.â€ť
Chalk one up for the spirits knowing when to keep a secret â€” husband Larry was able to surprise Theresa for her 45th.
â€śPeople think that because Iâ€™m a psychic medium that I know everything,â€ť the birthday girl shared. Â “But thatâ€™s just simply not the case!”
