This episode seemed so unfinished. There is a dark energy in the house that is targeting the child, and the female medium said early on that the child may be sensitive and that a voice told her the girl needs to be trained. But at the end they leave the family hanging.They never found the negative spirit , and just told the family to just tell that spirit to leave. Not sure how that is helpful....
