Warning: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Off TAPS goes to Wilmington, Delaware. The Rockwood Museum was built in 1854 by Joseph Shipley, a merchant banker. It was later owned by the family of Edward Bringhurst. The estate is now a museum open to the public. Make that a haunted museum…There are confirmed deaths on the property, which may be behind all the paranormal claims on the mansion.
This is Mary, the niece of Edward Bringhurst. She died at 100 years old in the house and many people believe it is her ghost that is roaming the estate. People have been touched in her bedroom and have seen a lady in white in the gardens.
Clients April and Phillip are also bothered by shadow figures, voices and noises. Doors open and close. There's been a man in black who walks the balcony. One night even the police responded to the house and saw the apparitions. Ghosts getting into trouble with the law? Whoa.
People have also seen a young boy they call Edward Jr. wandering the living room and he even sat at the kitchen table. The apparition of Edward himself has been seen in the living area. Are these spirits going to be riled by the upcoming Victorian Spiritualism Exhibit, complete with ouija boards and crystal balls? Or will the exhibit draw out even more ghosts, that perhaps aren't so friendly? TAPS needs to settle this so the staff will feel safe.
We have guests! Welcome to actress Rachel Nichols (Continuum) and good friend Jonathan Sadowski (Young and Hungry). Rachel grew up in an old house that she believed had a spirit watching over it. John has been a huge Ghost Hunters fan and he is fascinated by the unknown. They're super pumped to be helping out tonight.
There are odd noises and then unexplained cold air in the attic as K.J. and Dustin try to make contact.
That door opened. By itself. While K.J. and Dustin were standing right there. To quote the guys: "Dude!"
John is a natural investigator. He and Tango determine that the spooky creaking noises they hear are the boiler, so that's some good debunking.
Jason puts his phone on the table and John tries to teach ghost Eddie how to use it. The EVP session is quiet. That is, until Jason asks if a woman is in the room…
Shari and Sam ask out "Do you know Eddie?" and the REM-Pod goes haywire. Several times!
The guys are on the second floor when Jason hears someone walking on the stairs. As they move down they hear a strange whirring sound.
The attic scene needs a second examination, so K.J. and Dustin go back to figure out how that door opened. But did someone push Dustin's head back to keep him from going any further?
Every room has a mannequin of a man in a black jacket and a lady in white. So Steve and Tango are wondering if people's eyes are tricking them into believing they are seeing apparitions?
There is so much solid evidence to go through. Watching the playback of the REM-Pod interactions is fascinating for the team. They pick up on voices recorded while Jay and Steve are investigating. And a great sound is recorded while a group is investigating the prep kitchen.
Phillip and April receive all the stories of the teams' personal experiences and review the footage. This is among the longest reveals in Ghost Hunters history- so much good stuff!
This evidence is a LOT for the clients to take in. They are totally on edge now. Can you blame them? The good news is, this evidence is pretty solid that they are dealing with Eddie, the nice kid, in the dining room.
Jason advises, "please don't be scared." All arrows point to a playful ghost, nothing aggressive. It is definitely an intelligent haunt in the Rockwood mansion, but there's nothing to be afraid of.
