After years, Steven is visited by patient who appears to be a fan of his works. While his family is wrapped up in a series of conflicts that appear to re-emerge from the past, he does not take it too seriously and continues his work. As his younger sister Nellie decides to visit their old house, Steven gets a call from his dad with unfortunate news.

When Olivia interrupts Stephen and Mrs. Dudley's conversation, a face can be seen behind her as she moves through the door frame. It is gone when she turns to leave after inquiring about Luke. See more
Incorrectly regarded as a goof: Hugh (the father) tells Steven (the eldest son) to close his eyes and promise not to open them before they make a run out of the house from a bedroom to the car outside. Steven promises not to open his eyes. His dad carries him into the hallway and reminds Steven not to open his eyes. When they reach the stairs, you can see Steven now standing, no longer being carried by his dad. They both run down the stairs and Hugh is not leading Steven by the hand, yet Steven somehow knows exactly where and how to run down the stairs and out of the house (presumably with his eyes closed).
However, Steven does actually open his eyes and catches a glimpse of what he believes to be his mother coming around a corner. He never makes any attempt to close his eyes after that and can obviously tell that he's at the main staircase and he runs to the car immediately because Hugh had already told him that's where they were heading to.

I've seen a lot of ghosts. Just not the way you think. A ghost can be a lot of things. A memory, a daydream, a secret. Grief, anger, guilt. But, in my experience, most times they're just what we want to see. Most times, a ghost is a wish.
