From a home invasion to a ghost invasion; this week the ghosts of the house reveal their devious plan for the Harmons. We also find out who the man underneath the rubber suit is.
As the episode goes back and forth between six months ago when Chad and Patrick were living in the house and to present time, we start to see unnerving parallels between the two periods of time. Judging by Chad and Patrick's tragic end, it is not going to end well for the Harmons either.
A Ghost's Guide to Haunting a House
- Decide whether you want to just be one of the passive and confused trapped souls in the house or do you want to be "in on the game" and have some fun, get some revenge too while you're at it.
- When you realize the power the house has, use it to your advantage. But first, pick your strategy: do you want to make yourself known or unknown to the living?
- If you want to be visible to the living, you can pose as a trusty housekeeper who is both a sexy seductress to the men and wise old helpful confidante to the women.
- If you are a young ghost, you could also pose as a troubled kid and befriend the equally isolated teenager that's in the house. Just don't fall in love as that could be tricky. If there's a kinky rubber suit in the house, why not also develop a sick fetish for being a "rapist in a rubber suit"?
- They say "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". If you have an axe to grind, you should make yourself unknown to the residents of the house and do a full scale haunting – flickering lights, moving furniture, footsteps, the works.
- And when it all gets too much and they try to escape, appear as terrifying faces from a recent traumatic event at the back of their car – that would get them running right back in to the house.

A very successful haunting orchestrated by Hayden leads to Vivien being admitted in to a mental hospital. Vivien is relieved saying "at least I'm out of this house". Something tells me she has not fully escaped and the ghosts will have other plans...
