The story so far…
Thanks to her father’s research, Cassidy knows the name of the poltergeist is Thomas Alain Laurent, a 7-year-old boy who went into the tombs with his older brother Richard in 1912, and never came back out. With further info from Lara, Cassidy and Jacob (along with their Parisian host Pauline) head off to visit Richard’s granddaughter. There, Cassidy meets Richard’s great-granddaughter Adele Laurent who finds Cassidy amusing and decides to tag along. Thomas’ angry spirit is now wreaking havoc all across the city, and Adele then regals the truth of Thomas’ tragic story.

Knowing that Cassidy must head back into the Catacombs to face off against Thomas, she reluctantly destroys her parent’s earlier footage, forcing them to slap together a re-shoot for later that night. Back in the tunnels, Cassidy and Jacob enter the Veil and face off against an increasingly angry and powerful Thomas. Together, Cassidy and Jacob are able to remind Thomas of his life, calming him down from poltergeist to ghost, and Cassidy releases his spirit. The next day, Jacob tells Cassidy of his own death for the first time, not wanting to become like Thomas.

As Cassidy, her parents, Jacob, and Grim wait for a train to the airport, Cassidy spots a sinister-looking man in a black suit and skull mask staring at her from across the platform. A person that no one else is able to see...
