Harper is doing her best to pretend to be Daisy in the 1930s, while Griffin continues searching for the crystal that powers the time machine in the present day in the latest episode of “Secrets of Sulphur Springs.” Topher found the crystal and took it back to his house, but it scares him, and he loses it in the rain which causes the springs to return. Meanwhile, the twins are working on a trap to catch the ghost that haunts the hotel. And Savannah has discovered Daisy’s brother, Joe, is working to build the time machine in the 1960s.
I’m very curious to see how the springs are going to factor into the rest of the series. They had disappeared years before, but it’s clear the crystal brought them back. Will the springs factor into the time machine? Will they become a new time portal? And how does it connect to the Daisy’s mother? Her ghost seems to be haunting the Tremont. Is it a ghost? Or is she stuck in another dimension? Anything’s possible with this show and that’s got me excited for what may be to come.
In season one, we learned more about Griffin’s family’s connection to the Tremont. This season is tackling Harper’s family’s connection. We already knew her father had worked there as a teenager and claimed it had once belonged to his family. Now, we’re seeing how it belonged to his family and how they may have lost the land back when it was just a farm. It gives a personal connection to Harper in the same way we saw Griffin’s, and Ben’s, personal connection to the old summer camp that was on the property.
I want to see a little bit more from Savannah in the 1960s, as well as the twins and Topher’s investigations into the paranormal activity taking place at the hotel. In the first season, the twins and Topher seemed characters put there to make the families seem more like actual families rather than the typical TV families where everyone only has one child. But, this season, they are more integral to the story, especially Topher. And, while Savannah, and her disappearance, was a key part of season one, she’s been lost in the shuffle at times in season two. I get she’s not as important anymore, but I’m really enjoying her story and her connection to Daisy’s brother.
I like where this show is headed. I want to learn more about the springs. I want to learn more about the ghost, and I want to learn more about Joe’s efforts to build the time machine in the 1960s. Could Savannah be responsible for making the machine work that took her from her home in the 1990s and put her squarely in the 1960s? We know Topher is the reason that Harper and Daisy can’t get back to their respective timelines, but will he factor in setting everything right? This show has so much potential, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
