Sally is stuck in limbo, throughout the episode Josh and Nora try bring her spirt back, but each try is met with failure. When they try every last psychic in the area they end up turning to a witch. After finding some ingredients need by the witch they find out she is not only going to bring back Sally’s spirt but her body as well.
The episode wraps with Aidan being worse off then being buried, Josh living with his guilt, and Sally brought back to life.
Could this be a season where the ghosts, vampires, and werewolves take a back seat to witches and zombies? Only time will tell.
