My biggest criticism of Ghost Hunters has always been the ongoing ridiculous portrayal of Jason and Grant still working as plumbers for Roto-Rooter. While this may have been the case years ago when the show first started, there is no way these guys are still working as plumbers to make a living. Having met Britt from the show last summer, he was very open with me about how much time the show soaks up from their lives. Based on the travel alone, being a part of Ghost Hunters is more than a typical full-time job, which wouldn’t allow any other time for them to work on a stranger’s toilet. To deceive viewers with the guys working as plumbers within the first three minutes of tonight’s episode, I think it becomes so much harder to believe anything else presented on the show. If a reporter lied for half of a news story, would you ever believe anything they wrote again? I don’t think so. So, did the “plumbers” and their crew find any ghosts tonight as they investigated the U.S. Naval Institute in Annapolis, Maryland? They seem to think so. I don’t. Read on for more!
Much of the lore swirling around the building surrounded a young lieutenant who died on the property. While it was declared a suicide, others still believe he was murdered. Legend has it that his mother felt something bad happened to him at the exact time it did. For the following 72 hours, his mother claimed that he was visiting her with messages that he was actually murdered. For that reason, he is considered an angry spirit because nobody ever did the time for doing him in.
Since his death, people have reported seeing his ghost as a glowing figure. Others have reported hearing strange sounds inside the building like doors closing on their own. That is exactly what Jason and Grant experienced while investigating on the first floor. Although it wasn’t visibly captured on film (shocker!), the sound of a door closing stunned both guys as their meter made all sorts of crazy sounds indicating something paranormal was in their area. They tested the door to see if it had any elements that would make it close on its own, but none were found.
There were also a few other instances during the investigation in which objects suddenly fell to the ground. Jason and Grant had a meter fall off a table. Again, this wasn’t caught on film, but the meter had been hanging partially off the edge of the table before it fell off. Although they never debunked this as not being paranormal, I’ll do it for them. Nothing ghostly there. Sorry.
While Amy was sitting alone in the dark doing research, a marker flew off a windowsill. Since she didn’t get that moment on video the first time, she set everything up the way it was in hopes to capture it on film. Amazingly, the marker flew off the windowsill again. Spooky, right? Except for the fact the video showed the window was open and it simply blew off the windowsill and onto the floor.
When the guys revealed the evidence they captured, there was nothing too impressive. They captured a “hey” via EVP, but it sounded more like somebody’s shoe scuffing the ground. They also caught a voice that did sound like it was saying “didn’t do it.” But that was way too muffled to understand. Hell, it could have said “can’t glue it.” After all was said and done, Jason and Grant determined there was something paranormal at the building, but didn’t think it was harmful.
What did you think of tonight’s episode? You don’t really believe Jason and Grant still work as plumbers, right? Did you think the evidence they captured was proof of the paranormal? What are your thoughts on Grant leaving the show? Sound off and leave a comment below!
