Storyline

A flashback to 1984 shows young Tate's first encounter with ghosts in the basement. In the present day, Tate tells Nora Montgomery that she can't have one of Vivien's babies. Several of the ghosts have their eye on Vivien's twins and Constance faces off against Chad. She suggests that she keep her grandchild while he take Ben's child but Chad insists he wants both children. Violet tries a spell to get rid of some of the ghosts. After Ben collects her from the hospital, Vivien goes into labor at the house but only one child survives. Violet learns who fathered one of her mother's babies. Written by garykmcd

Another Bad One
2 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is no logic to this show and events that happen in previous shows are not continued correctly in subsequent episodes.

This one we see Tate's first encounter with the house.

Everybody is having a party.

Hard to believe there's room the house is so full.

Gay Spock is back.

And Lange wants them gone.

Eventually after unbearable exposition, the baby comes.

Big whoop.

I have to say that the writing sucks on this show.

I think we continue to watch it because it's so freaking cheesy and mindless.

Don'r expect to be frightened in the slightest.
