Plus, the gang receives a terrifying message from beyond the grave! This show is scary and nuts and I love it.
Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) and Co. attended their first funeral on the Nov. 5 episode of Ravenswood — and considering the direction this show is headed, I’m positive it won’t be their last. With Miranda’s (Nicole Anderson) ghost standing by their side, the surviving members of “The Five” said goodbye to their fallen friend, not knowing they’d all be seeing her again. Real soon.
While Remy (Britne Oldford) hit the books to research the curse further, Caleb spend some quality time with his dead BFF, helping her discover her new ghostly abilities. He also took her place at Chez Collins, working out a deal with Raymond (Steven Cabral) to get a room in exchange for doing some chores around the house.
Honestly, this deal might work out really well — especially since Caleb can basically just wear all of Miranda’s old clothes. Her pants will be a little short on him, but I’m sure Caleb looks great in capris.
Are You There, Abby? It’s Us, The Five.
The mystery behind Luke (Brett Dier) and Olivia’s (Merritt Patterson) dad Charles’ death also thickened this week with the introduction of Abby Wheeler, Charles’ ex-girlfriend… who also happens to have died 20 years ago. Luke and Olivia’s mom told them that Abby had tried to contact their dad about a mysterious threat, and now, Liv is convinced Abby is trying to contact her. She’s so convinced, in fact, that she got “The Five” — or, at least, what’s left of them — to perform a little seance to communicate with Miz Wheeler.
With a little help from Olivia’s make-shift Ouija board — seriously, I’ll never look at refrigerator magnets the same way again — Abby told “The Five” that Luke and Olivia’s dad discovered the curse on Ravenswood, and that the curse is to blame for his death! She did say that their dad isn’t with her, which makes me wonder where his spirit disappeared to. In Ravenswood, I feel like it couldn’t have gone too far.
Miranda eventually became visible to the rest of “The Five,” after saving them from a vengeful spirit (Abby?), so at least Caleb won’t feel so alone anymore. But I wonder what she was trying to tell them about the “pact.” What pact was made that’s now causing all this trouble? Who made it? And how can it be undone?
>> What really happened to Raymond’s former caretaker?
>> Can Mrs. Grunwald (Meg Foster) see ghosts, too?
>> How annoyed must Miranda be that she’s stuck in the same outfit every day for the rest of eternity?
