There seems to be a ghost resembling Timothy.

Um, either Scarlet knew the ghost was there all along ... or she's assuming that's Timothy talking from behind her.

Wow, didn't even consider that she didn't know there was a ghost behind her. I assumed the strong feelings she's recently displayed were based on them playing around with something she's had to deal with extensively. Also, I assume Tim's voice is squeakier than the ghost guy behind her. I assumed a Lot in that one panel. :lol:

Also, the apparition is a lot taller than Timmy.
Cassie and Day haven't picked up on Scarlet's direct answer to the spirit. e.g.: "Who are you talking to?"

In hindsight, of course the cat can see ghosts.

I note Ghost Boy doesn't appear to have a name, yet...

I have often wondered if ghosts are standing around some of these ghost hunter teams you see on tv asking WTF?

My guess is that Ghost Boy is Scarlet's twin brother.
Scarlet seems to have known the ghost for some time and that the ghost was with her.
They seem to be the same age and height.
They seem to have the same neck, shoulders and ears. But these features are not much different than Daylia and Castela's.
Their thick eyebrows, nose and posture match and are different that the other girls appearance.
Or maybe I am just seeing things.

No name for ghost boy? Then until Paul gives him a name, we shall call him Mervin. (because it sounds funny.)

Nah, usually they're making scary faces at the hunters and giggling hysterically.

No wonder Scarlet is so freaky about ghosts . . . Is she The Ghost Whisperer?

Now that I think about it, their next words are obvious.

Thing is, we haven't seen Timothy since his brownie munching. Is it possible he has this "side effect" of being semi-spectral?

That depends very much on just what was in those brownies.

However, the ghost is shown as being about as tall as Scarlet. Timmy is much shorter than she. So, I don't think it's him... a student's ghost from his clothing style, but not Timmy.

Or, perhaps, we already have one. We don't know who "our" Timmy was named for.

It doesn't look as if the ghost died in a school laboratory explosion, but who really knows? (Other than Paul, of course).

You've seen that too? It's either that or unplug something useful and make it look accidental.

So, it's some sort of a law of spookiness that ghosts can only speak when spoken to, except when speaking to certain specific people? I wonder how rule-bound they are, and who enforces such rules? Or are they just natural laws that they can't break?

Yeah, I was wondering which case it was. Either way could get very interesting very soon.

Unless Timmy looks taller because the brownies made him high. . .
