Ravenswood Review: Séance

at .  Updated at .

Another week has gone by in Ravenswood since the accident and life has definitely not returned to normal for the four remaining teens from the car crash.

Along those lines, Ravenswood Season 1 Episode 3 opened with Miranda's funeral.

Considering she was in town for all of 48 hours, it had a surprising turn out.

At Miranda's Funeral

Mr. Collins made a short and sweet speech, but Miranda wasn't buying it. During the brief time graveside, Olivia noticed a blonde woman standing at her father's grave. However when she pointed it out to Luke, he saw nothing. I wonder why Olivia was suddenly able to see a ghost.

Was it because the ghost wanted to be seen?

That scene was so brief, I had to re-watch it to catch it. The second time Olivia saw her it was far more obvious and pretty much scared the crap out of me! It turns out this visitor of Olivia's was none other than a woman named "Abby" the police are searching for.

Abigail Wheelan was their father's high school girlfriend and he believed she was trying to warn him about the curse. Then their mom revealed that Abby was one of the five teens who died in the laboratory fire 20 years before.

By the way, did anyone catch that one of the students from the fire was named Walter White? You gotta love the props department!

So there seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding what's happening on this show - and I'm with you guys. But every week they do teach us a little more about this curse. Originally, I had mistakenly thought the curse only occurred twice prior. This week Remy clarified it had happened five times. Her mother coming home was the beginning of the sixth.

On Ravenswood Season 1 Episode 2, the rest of the teens experienced dangerous or near death experiences. This week things almost settled down...until the seance.

Remy was always a believer, Caleb sees ghosts and now that Olivia is seeing ghosts, Luke couldn't really deny everyone's request to talk. He also wasn't truly on board until he saw the supernatural events of the lights, windows, and doors in the very Carrie-esque scene. 

People always said this place was cursed. Maybe it's what they're talking about.


So now I have two main questions:

  1. What is the five pact?
  2. Why did Miranda keep getting transported to that hallway and why are the ghosts trying to hurt or scare her?

Also: If Abby's ghost was trying to warn Luke and Olivia's father, why is she now trying to scary Olivia?

So many questions. Hit the comments with your thoughts and theories and check out this promo for what's on tap:

Maybe there was supposed to be five coffins out there today.


It's okay you can say it. Something in this town is trying to kill you, all of you.

Miranda [to Caleb]
