Ghosts Season 2 Plot
According to Deadline, Joining Port and the show’s 10 aforementioned central cast members in San Diego for the panel moderated by actor Matt Walsh (who appeared in Season 1 as Elias Woodstone) was writer-EP Joe Wiseman, who teased that “we’re going to learn a little bit more” in Season 2 about each ghost’s backstory—starting to further examine “lots of fun mysteries.” He said that we’d see Prohibition-era jazz singer Alberta singing in a club and find out more about her death while meeting “some suspects,” also confirming that each ghost has a special power and that the show will “continue to explore” them all.
Wiseman added that there’s a tree on Samantha and Jay’s property that’s “as old as Sasappis,” which we’ll find out more about in terms of the “special meaning” it has for him. Moreover, Season 2 will explore “a surprising connection” between established characters and “a ghost that lives at the Farnsbys’ house.”
Cast members then chimed in on the guest stars they wanted to see on the show as new characters came through the B&B. Moreover, Ambudkar joked, “Jean-Claude Van Damme.” “He’s going to play my dad.” “Lizzo, please!” said Pinnock. “I love you.” Added Wisocky: “We would love to be visited by the cast of the original [series].”

In order to prevent a B&B from ever opening, Thorfinn says he put a Norse curse on the mansion. He claims that the curse, which may or may not have been real, is to blame for all of the bad things that have happened this season, including Sam’s injury that gave her the power to see ghosts.
Sam almost breaks the purported curse by combining cinnamon, sugar, and hot water, but she decides against it because she does not want to risk losing her power. She advises Jay to keep pushing forward to launch their company regardless of the challenges they face. When Jenkins, a subordinate, tells Isaac that Nigel has entered the afterlife, Isaac is devastated because he had intended to tell Nigel that he liked him.
