Plot summary

Cast and characters





Bess Marvin. Socialite, liar, thief. Why did Bess say she lives with her aunt when she lives in a van? Why did she have Tiffany's ring? Could Bess be the killer I'm chasing?
— Nancy's inner monologue

I thought if ghosts exist you would come to me. Why haven't you? Am I not enough to keep you here? Because I really need you.
— Nancy to her mom

Nancy: "I wasn't with mom when she died. I didn't get to see what she was going through or what she was feeling. I was in a gym dancing with my friends. I had my phone. You could have called. But instead, you made me believe everything was okay. But I never got to say goodbye because of you."
Carson: "I was trying to honor your mom's wishes. I thought I was doing the right thing, but maybe I wasn't. Whatever you're feeling... you can carry it with you, but you can't let it consume you."
―  Nancy expressing her resentment to Carson.
