  • I never would have guessed that the girl was the prom queen.

    This was a very smart and interesting episode. It also played into a bit of urban legend which was really cool. A girl that died years ago keeps coming back to catch a ride that never comes for her prom. The water parts were creepier than anything. When it started bubbling I was at the edge of my seat, and the girl knew how to summon a spirit, that kinda made me suspicious. But to find out she was actually the girl that died in 1956 was extremely shocking. Oh and when the guy had his cousin come as the fake ghost, that was kinda funny. I liked how they make the episodes scary but manage to put some humor in it. This episode is classic. AYAOTD is the best.
