This article contains major spoilers for Ghosts season 3 episode 1.

It’s been a long wait for the Ghosts season 3 premiere – nine months, in fact, since the Ghosts season 2 finale ended on a major cliffhanger in May 2023. The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes unexpectedly extended the usual planned summer break hiatus well into the fall and winter. 

Now fans are finally finding out what happened immediately after Sam (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar) watched in shock from their car as a massive light beamed down from heaven to “suck off” (in the show’s parlance) one of the ghosts. 

“The Owl” begins with Sam and Jay entering Woodstone and immediately conducting a headcount. One by one, the main ghosts either appear or tell them that they’ve seen another ghost recently. The basement ghosts and even the attic ghosts are accounted for. It’s clear eventually that Flower (Sheila Carrasco) hasn’t been seen by either Sam or another ghost in a while and she was the one that abruptly got “sucked off” to the real afterlife.
