The rest of the questions I can't answer lol Maybe because Maggie was already dead for a while she had more control as a ghost than the others? Were trapped there because as Lamdis said they had blocked deaths door and they couldn't move on, which is why they lashed out. My theory is that Maggie (or something that seems to be her, Roman is not that all powerful, he was unable to see the real ghost inside Abigail) managed to fool Roman to achieve what she wanted, be alive again.

Truth Seekers ending explained as ghosts wage war on mankind – setting up a terrifying season 2. No act of sudden sci-fi silliness can overshadow how effectively every breadcrumb, clue, and seemingly insignificant detail culminates in an intense ending no one can possibly see coming.

But what happens when you take soldiers who have lived through that nightmare and plop them in a haunted house bearing the scars of Nazi presence? Like the rest of the towns power comes from their emotions but she had been there long enough to speak civilly to Roman as well while everyone else just seemed hate driven. Yet “Ghosts of War” earns the right to this redirect with an emotional payoff that’s tragically heartbreaking. So I've started watching from the beginning again (I know, I'm weird) and Father Dan gives this speech at the bar funeral about how he perceives death, and he says that death transcends time... My first instinct when I saw the end clip of Dan's ghost was that it was in an earlier time period - the children's clothes, the buildings and the colour wash all looked older. Nadine was inside the accelerator room and she is ALREADY dead, she could just open the portal and no one would die. eventAction: 'view' }); I have rarely been so disappointed with how a movie progresses.

Ghosts of War A gaggle of American soldiers make their way to a fancy French chateau at the end of the second world war. He could not be the Whistle-man while alive because he sacrificed himself. What... Why... Ok someone please explain? The end was bad anyway, felt rushed with lots of plot holes. And the children running after him bring some normalcy to that implication. Father Dan's faith was on the rocks. Its a good idea, but wasn't Father Dan surprised by the discovery of the room he found? Spoiler. I got the impression that Roman's body was taken over. So the reason Maggie was normal is because people who died before the earthquake/Lamda test, were normal ghosts (unfinished business etc.) Nadine was inside the accelerator room and she is ALREADY dead, she could just open the portal and no one would die. Bress: I guess I was really tired of all the horror movies where the innocent family movies into a haunted house and you know the rest.And that’s the problem, is that you know the rest. And why would Roman go through all the trouble of earning the town's trust if he could open the gate with Maggie and earn only Daphne's trust to access the Lambda Facility... i dont know, maybe they did all that on purpose, Yeah, the last 2 episodes felt like someone had said to the writers "look, you're not getting a season 2 so just wrap this shit up". Also her ending line is really twisted, take another body? That's the question that 'Ghosts of War' answers with arguable efficiency. It's possible he kept the myth going.
