WARNING: Don't read this photo recap if you don't want to know what happens in this episode.
After years of living with her parents while they got on their feet, Jeanine and A.J. had finally found their dream home. The floor plan was perfect for a family with two sons. It was a foreclosed home and needed a little fixing up, so the price was much cheaper than they would have expected to pay.
The unusual activity began innocently enough. While she was alone in the house painting one of the rooms, something kept turning the radio off. As Jeanine had a heart condition, the fright was not good for her health ... and could've even killed her. Later, Jeanine's mother had a fright when left alone in the house to prepare for Jeanine's eldest son Gage's birthday party.
One night, Jeanine was in the kitchen washing dishes when things started getting strange. A gust of ice-cold air on her neck turned into something she could not see poking her. That was enough of a start for her to drop a dish. Her heart was racing, which caused her condition to kick in. Out of nowhere, something yanked her hair. Jeanine sprinted out of the house ... but left her heart medicine behind. She had to dart back into the kitchen to retrieve it.
Jeanine was folding laundry when she heard her other son Hunter talking to someone in another room. Jeanine asked Hunter who he'd been talking to, to which Hunter said his "friend." When Jeanine asked what his "friend" had said, Hunter told his mom that he said that he had to be a friend himself ... otherwise, the friend would hurt his mother. Jeanine was floored but tried her best to hide how frightened she was from her sons.
During a visit, Jeanine's father witnessed a rosary on a door handle swing like a pendulum and then stop cold. Within moments, a giant stomping filled the house. Pictures fell from walls, plaster rained down from the ceiling, but there was nothing Jeanine or her father could see to be causing it. Jeanine's father yelled at the presence to show itself, and it certainly did: Jeanine ended up with three deep claw scratches on her back.
Jeanine showed A.J. the claw marks but he wrote them off as her brushing up against a couple of nails while working in the house. It wasn't until a door opened and slammed shut on its own that he began to believe her.
A.J. thought that perhaps hanging some crosses and other religious items around the house might calm the spirit, so he and Jeanine went to work. She brought her Bible with them from room to room. When they reached the door in the kitchen, she put the Bible on the kitchen table. As soon as A.J. came down the ladder after hanging a crucifix over the door, the lights went out and the Bible began to vibrate on the table. They sprinted out of the house when the Bible slammed shut.
Believing they had a ghost in the house, Jeanine thought perhaps a cassette recorder might pick up something. Mustering all of her courage, she ran into the house, put a recorder onto the kitchen table, and ran back out. 30 minutes later, she ran back in to get it. She listened to recorded silence that turned into low growling, which soon became a snarl of "She will die." Was this indeed a ghost ... or something else?
About a week later, Jeanine had to go into the house to look for the boys when they disappeared from the yard. She ended up in one of the upstairs bedrooms ... and couldn't leave it, as something held her in place. It slowly lifted her from the floor and then pinned her down. It felt as though an enormous weight was on top of her and hands were on her. Jeanine fought with everything she had but could not get away.
A dark voice told Jeanine to "look under," and she managed to tear a corner of the carpet. She gave it a yank and suddenly the entity released her. Carved into the wood flooring under the carpet were symbols that she could only describe as "Satanic." She sprinted from the house, relieved to see A.J. with the boys outside. As she tried to stop her racing heart, she told A.J. to go upstairs. When he saw some of the carpet pulled up, he tore up the rest and found a large circle of symbols. Had someone really tried to summon a demon in the bedroom?
A.J. called the local minster, who felt a presence in the house upon entering it. As they worked on blessing the house, Jeanine began to feel ill. Thinking that her heart was acting up, A.J. found her a place to sit while he helped the minister finish the cleansing. Jeanine's chest was tight and she could barely breathe. Finally, Jeanine no longer felt like she was even herself anymore and blacked out.
An hour later, the minister finished his work and left. When A.J. checked on Jeanine, she was still pretty out of it. As they drove to her mother's house, he asked Jeanine how she was doing. Suddenly, a deep voice said, "I'm fine." Her eyes were pitch black. A.J. floored it until they reached their destination.
It was a battle, but eventually Jeanine regained control and the entity was gone. A.J. and Jeanine packed their kids and belongings into the camper and moved off the property to stay with Jeanine's sister while they tried to sell the Demon House.
