Plot[edit | edit source]
The episode begins with Frank and Sadie having a spat. Frank locks himself in the walk-in liquor cabinet and only communicates with knocks. Sadie wishes to go to a party they RSVP'd to, which Frank does not want to attend, leaving Sadie to go with her college friend Ewing Klipsringer. Ewing arrives, and Frank still refuses to leave. Sadie leaves a jealous Frank to pout at home in their walk-in liquor cabinet.
The pair head to a seance party at the home of Carter Caldwell, a publishing magnate. Ewing flirts shamelessly with Sadie, despite her growing discomfort with his advances. He introduces Sadie to Carter Caldwell, and Dee Fay, a writer and the hostess of the party. Dee implores Sadie to use her psychic gifts to run a seance, and Sadie agrees.
Sadie begins the seance, explaining that they can only ask the ghost Yes and No questions. They ask the summoned ghost several questions to attempt to find out who the ghost was and what he did while he was alive. When it's Dee's turn to ask questions, she confesses to the group that during the summoning she was trying very hard to summon her long-dead love, Jay. Dee breaks the rules of the seance, releasing Jay's spirit from the binding created by the rules of the seance.
Dee explains that she just wanted to say she was sorry, and how she left her husband, Tom, but since Jay's death she has felt unfulfilled. The two profess their continued love for one another. This lets Jay find peace and go into the afterlife. During their confession, Ewing confesses that he loves Sadie and believes the feelings to be returned. She does not return his feelings, and leaves to return home to Frank.
