Also in this episode, a ghost's reflection suddenly appears next to a woman in a haunted Australian hotel; a ghost hunting group has some amazing and chilling experiences at an infamous California restaurant; a young girl's spirit is stuck inside a house; and disembodied voices and loud footsteps terrify an Ohio family.
