As we clear another name off of the list of who killed Maddie, School Spirits is ramping up for a wild final two episodes, and I am ready.
We recap the Paramount+ series School Spirits Season 1 Episode 6, “Grave The Last Dance,” which contains spoilers.
As each episode passes of School Spirits, we hone in on someone who likely will not be the killer. However, Maddie (Peyton List) and Simon (Kristian Flores) have their eyes set on Claire (Rainbow Wedell) and her possible involvement in the murder. Can they finally get Claire to admit it? What is Nicole (Kiara Pichardo) hiding?
School Spirits Season 1 Episode 6 recap
The episode begins with Claire texting Xavier back and saying that she will go to the dance with him. Of course, Simon, Xavier, and Nicole gather together to “get Claire to admit to killing Maddie.”
Rhonda and Maddie are talking about the dance when Maddie asks Rhonda if it is possible to have sex in the afterlife, and she says they can. After more digging, Rhonda finds out that Maddie died a virgin. Finally, Wally asks if Maddie will go to the dance with him, and she says yes.
Claire has quite a few questions about why now with Xavier. Xavier handles the confrontation well without missing a beat by saying he feels terrible about dealing with the situation and wants to make it up to her. This leads to Xavier freaking out over Claire, possibly setting him up, but Simon reminds him they owe Maddie.
Wally and Maddie meet and head to the dance together. Next, Claire questions Xavier’s dad while she waits for him to come downstairs. On their way to the dance, Claire stops the car to tell him that her friends are going to be a little hard on him, and shortly after that plants a big kiss on him.
After Xavier arrives, Simon, Nicole, and Maddie notice he has a lip print on his neck from Claire.
At home, Sandra, Maddie’s mom, is startled by some noise at her house. Back to the dance, Wally is having the time of his life while Rhonda and Maddie look on. Things aren’t going as planned at the dance, and Xavier and Simon have words with each other.

Moments later, Sandra calls Simon, who doesn’t answer, then Nicole, who says she will check on Sandra.
Wally notices that Maddie isn’t paying much attention to him and tells Maddie that they don’t think going to the dance is a good idea. She asks him why, and he says he doesn’t believe she is ready to die.
Of course, she mentions that he is “old” dead, and her being dead is still very fresh. As they are talking, Maddie sees Xavier and Claire leaving the dance.
What do the police find in the woods?
The police found Maddie’s book bag in the abandoned house, and when they continued their search for other things around the house, the cops stumbled across a crowbar that had a little blood on it.
As they go into the boiler room and start to make out, Clarie notices that Xavier turns on the recording button on his phone. She confronted him about his plan, and he showed her the video of her and Mr. Anderson fighting.
He pushes her for answers about what happened and if she had anything to do with Maddie’s death.
Does Claire admit to killing Maddie?
No, Claire admits to telling Mr. Andreson to pay Maddie off because she thought she was the one that had the video of them talking about the money.
However, she says that is it and knows nothing about what happened to Maddie, including her death.
School Spirits Season 1 Episode 6 Ending Explained
After they return upstairs, Xavier explains that he believes Claire about not wanting to hurt Maddie to Simon. A very defeated Simon isn’t sure what to do next. Xavier’s dad arrives at Sandra’s house to inform her about the murder weapon. He also tells her that they brought in someone for questioning, who we see is Mr. South.
Finally, we see Maddie apologizing to Wally for ruining the night for him. While he tries to tell her she doesn’t have to apologize, she grabs him and kisses him. As things wind down in the episode, we see Sandra reaching for the bottle and Nicole unburying something.
I knew she was acting sketchy.
