Griffin and Harper find a way to go back to 1962 and locate Savannah who has finally found a family. She decides to send a message back to 2020 so adult Bennett can move on with his life. And, it seems like the Tremont is no longer haunted as people understand that Savannah is still alive and both Bennett and Jess feel relief. Meanwhile, Harper has decided to use the time portal to go back and save her dad from the car crash that took his life.
I love this episode. It wraps things up in a happy little bow and then hints that it will all be taken away. Savannah, who never had a real family in 1990 found her happy home in the 1960s. Bennett and Jess found relief and it allowed for Griffin and his siblings to stay in Sulphur Springs where they wanted to be rather than go back to Chicago. It seems like Harper and Griffin will get to continue hanging out as best friends, but it ends with Harper going back to 2011 and the day her Dad died.
This penultimate episode of the first season of this show has done an excellent job of setting up a second season. The teaser at the end lets us know that the Tremont is still haunted, just not by who we all thought it was haunted by. Savannah wound up being an excellent red herring for the show. But, the question is now “who is haunting the Tremont if it’s not Savannah?” It seems like the haunting may be by Harper’s dad or possibly by Harper if she ends up dying in the past. I can’t wait to see the season finale to see how they are going to continue the series.
I’ve said numerous times that this is better than any Disney Channel show I can remember. This week, I learned that this was supposed to be a Disney+ Original before being moved to Disney Channel. That explains so much about the quality of this compared to other Disney Channel shows. If it was intended to be on Disney+, that means it should get the same attention to detail as “The Mandalorian,” “WandaVision” or “Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” I’m excited for the finale.
