Meanwhile, a mysterious stranger, Owen, wanders into The Claw and asks the gang to cater a charity gala happening at the country club that same day.

Review: Nancy and her friends deal with a case of possession.

The Story

Picking the story up from last week. Georgia has been possessed by Tiffany’s spirit and it is causing all sorts of problems for Nancy and her friends as they have to deal with Tiffany’s spirit while simultaneously trying to provide catering for a charity event being run by the Hudson family. Luckily Georgia’s mother is into the paranormal and able to help her daughter out.

Nancy also finds a time capsule from 1999 reveals a few clues into the murder of Lucy Sable.

Also, Laura is after the password to a USB stick, which Tiffany left for Nick.

The Acting

Leah Lewis does a pretty good job of portraying the possession of George and is genuinely scary in certain moments. Especially when she is dealing with very big knives.  Alex Saxon has some pretty good scenes as Ace in which he is paired up with Nick.


A lot of this episode dealt with Tiffany’s possession of George. So we didn’t get too many clues or scenes of Nancy making new discoveries surrounding the Murders until the last few minutes of the episode. I really liked seeing Ace and Nick work together when they were accessing the USB stick that Tiffany had left. The contents of which may hold clues to the murder of Tiffany.

We also got a pretty tense scene in which Tiffany’s spirit is going after Ryan Hudson. The opening segment of that where she takes control of George and makes her write the words ‘I Know’ on Ryan’s bathroom mirror was pretty effective.

Overall. A pretty good episode, but not as interesting as what we have seen to date.
