‘Tis the season for vacation hijinks at Woodstone Manor!

Sam desires to create her personal rom-com vacation film, however the ghosts produce other plans on Ghosts Season 2 Episode 9 and Ghosts Season 2 Episode 10. Put together yourselves for probably the most daring possession plot and Bela’s newest relationship mishap.

It is an hour-long episode dripping with vacation nostalgia and cheeky enjoyable.

“The Christmas Spirit, Half One” and “The Christmas Spirit, Half Two” felt like two full components of 1 story.

This vacation story is not a case of two episodes being slapped collectively resulting from a schedule determination. Or two episodes airing back-to-back to hurry via the manufacturing.

Each components match collectively properly to inform a heartwarming vacation story set at Woodstone Manor. You could not have one half with out the opposite; each have been wanted to fill out the story to provide it a whole decision.

I would think about that is what it might really feel like if Ghosts had hour-long episodes as a substitute of solely being a half-hour. Based mostly on this variation, the present ought to do that model once more.

Possibly one other vacation particular or one thing spooky for Halloween?!

Sam’s obsession with the vacations made whole sense. She loves love tales and something festive she will do so as to add cheer to individuals’s lives.

Her bread and butter can be adorning round the home and watching vacation rom-com films.

Rattling, this cookie good.


However, Thorfinn hating the vacations got here as a shock. I’d’ve guessed that he would’ve been accustomed to the vacations by now since he is one of many oldest ghosts round, however he’s cussed and does maintain a grudge.

Sam and Thorfinn’s polarizing sides made them nice counterparts to play off of on this story. We now have the one that loves Christmas probably the most being possessed by the one that hates it probably the most.

The vacation film writes itself right here!

Sam getting possessed by Thorfinn was hilarious from begin to end. Did anybody else chuckle every time Rose McIver, who performs Sam, tried to behave like Thorfinn?

For anybody else who watched iZombie, it introduced again so many recollections of her taking part in these completely different characters and roles. Rose McIver did a fantastic job embodying Thorfinn; she’s so underappreciated for her comedic timing.

Trevor: What the hell, Sam?! You don’t have to repair her up proper in entrance of my face.
Sam: You’re proper, Trevor. That was insensitive of me. It’s simply that he looks as if a pleasant man and also you don’t have a physique!

Thorfinn, Sasappis, and Hetty had a blast utilizing Sam’s physique to the fullest. You virtually needed to affix in on their enjoyable. Utilizing Alexa to order frozen pizzas and giving Hetty entry to sizzling wood-chopping TikToks could seem small within the grand scheme, however the jokes hit loads arduous for these characters.

And because the day went on, it was surprising that neither Jay nor Bela seen that Sam was possessed.

Thorfinn wasn’t delicate within the least; his deep voice gave him away rapidly. Although, we in all probability want to recollect Ghosts Season 2 Episode 8; Jay is not the quickest to note particulars or modifications. He would’ve missed the obtrusive crimson flags right here.

Thorfinn ultimately discovering his love for the vacations was candy.

Positive, it felt like a tacky Hallmark or Netflix vacation film, however that is the vibe “The Christmas Spirit, Half One” and “The Christmas Spirit, Half Two” needed to get throughout. This hour was Ghosts’ vacation second.

Particularly, the scene when Thorfinn finds out that Sam and Jay purchased every of the ghosts a present was new ranges of touching. This scene was the traditional vacation trope the place Thorfinn realized “the true that means of Christmas.”

In fact, Sam and Jay would get them presents; they care in regards to the ghosts and deal with them like a household. The music, “Sam’s” face after they noticed the present field, and the reveal of the glass ship bottle made it one in every of Ghosts’ most fantastically candy moments but.

Talking of sweetness, have been you cheerful that Isaac and Nigel lastly kissed?

It took ceaselessly to get them to this second. After all of the flirtation, walks, and relationship dilemmas, it is good to have them transfer ahead in a constructive path.

Alberta: So, y’all haven’t kiss but? In any respect?!
Isaac: That’s appropriate.
Flower: Isaac, it’s been months. I’d’ve slept with him and his bass participant by now.

Although, it was stunning that they hadn’t kissed but.

Isaac and Nigel made plenty of progress by revealing their emotions for one another and committing to the connection. However their first kiss felt like one thing they need to’ve achieved by now, even with delays in defining the connection.

The pacing was a lot slower than we realized. Generally that may be factor to let the couple develop naturally, however there additionally must be some motion. We won’t have the event take ceaselessly.

Hopefully, Isaac overcoming his guilt of mendacity to his spouse Beatrice can be first step.

If that guilt held him again from kissing Nigel, then his conquering it ought to assist him push issues ahead. Nothing is holding him again now that he is processed issues.

And the flashback to Isaac’s remaining moments with Beatrice was a pleasant reassurance for any lingering questions.

The ghosts ought to dig into their reminiscence banks before later. Sasappis saved the day right here, however he may’ve dropped the reality bomb a lot sooner. Many ghosts’ issues appear to be solved when somebody remembers eavesdropping on one thing as a ghost.

Elsewhere at Woodstone Manor, Jay’s sister Bela, Eric, and Trevor performed with fireplace throughout their possession plan.

The collection has solely had a number of possessions up to now, so there is no telling how good or unhealthy the following one could possibly be. Sam and Jay can solely assist a lot if one thing have been to go flawed. And their electrocutions/possessions have fortunately averted any issues.

On this case, Eric almost died after electrocuting himself on the wall gentle. If it weren’t for Thorfinn’s powers, we might’ve had a brand new ghost working across the manor.

The group must be taught from this misfire and by no means do that once more. Possessions are hilarious and trigger plenty of drama, however they got here near ruining the vacations and taking a life. The 24-hour relationship plan was not value it.

And Bela must acknowledge that she has unhealthy style in relationship experiences.

Trevor is actually lifeless and emotionally/bodily unavailable. She might have appreciated their connection, however nothing would ever occur between them. The plan would’ve solely made her need him extra since he was unavailable.

I’m not asking you to have an ideal marriage. I’m asking you to not sleep with a ghost on Christmas in my home!


Let’s hope that her new flirtation with Eric works out. She now sees him in a brand new gentle, and typically a small step could be step one to one thing nice. And we can’t know but if their chemistry works in a romantic relationship.

Granted, she’ll in all probability nonetheless underappreciate what Eric does for her, however something may occur. Possibly he’ll nonetheless be the “unhealthy boy” she’s into?

Miracles can occur through the holidays.

Final Ideas From Woodstone Manor:

  • Hetty and Trevor?! It is so scandalous. It was solely a matter of time earlier than the 2 most hot-and-bothered ghosts lastly received collectively.


  • The heckler on the practice station might be confused about what is occurring at Jay’s mansion after listening to their dialog.


  • Nobody will ever let Pete overlook that Alberta facepalmed him over the kiss. It is the rejection that retains on giving.


  • Hetty’s lust for shirtless males chopping wooden must turn into a Valentine’s Day episode or a romance novel.
