Lee Travis
Can Shane please stop being so good looking that would be great. Kay thanks. Lol
at 22:44 when shane finishes saying "unfinished business" you can kinda hear something that sounds like a whispered "yes"
When your mom walks into your room without knocking: "Oh boy, get out."
Oh no
I love Ryan but come on... Come on.
He didn't say brown and white
Huong Le
Uhm...they saw very clear evidence of ghosts but...why was ryan kinda chilled ? In the previous season he'd scream when the lights turned on/off by itself. But now even when he actually heard voices he remained...pretty calm. Guess Shane had a good influence on him somehow lmao

Dang this prison is crazy. No family, no newspaper. I'm claustrophobic. This place is scary. Shane don't want to believe nothing, he is funny though. That's probably a defense mechanism.
The scanner always sounds scary while scanning
At 9:20 the guy looks like a better looking Shane
Ryan: “Horrifying, terrifying...”

Shane: “I mean, its a bit spacious...”
ryan: horrifying and chilling...

shane: S P A C I O U S

I love the spirit box! Like if you agree!
I like to believe that the whistle they heard was the way of the 'ghosts' during their living life's to tell the others someone was coming close
Promethazine & Percocets
Mob Of The Dead?
Haleigh Marie
