School Spirits Season 1 Episode 7 Recap

The episode begins with Simon grilling Nicole about why she didn’t pick him up this morning. She has an answer for everything, but Simon is flustered because they blame Mr. South, and he doesn’t believe he did anything to Maddie.

While looking at Nicole’s project, he notices many photos of Maddie and questions it, and Nicole gets super defensive. The afterlife crew is preparing for a mock trial, Maddie wants answers, and Mr. Martin wants her to calm down.

Nicole, who has been super suspicious lately, is seen burning the photos of Maddie that were in her project. Next, the crew discusses how Mr. South isn’t the guy because he is his alibi. Then, they are trying to figure out their next move, including finding out who recorded the video of Mr. Anderson and Claire.

We hear Nicole pipe up with negativity again, asking when they all became Scooby Doo. The crew (minus Claire) decides to go to the police station to break into the evidence locker.

Simon oddly bombs his meeting with a college admission lady. Moments later, we see Claire smashing her window as a ploy for them to get the cops there while they go see if they can get in the evidence room.

Nicole is pacing the halls waiting for someone to get off a specific computer at school. Of course, Xavier and Simon are able to get into the evidence locker.

What do Simon and Xavier find at the police station?

Simon gets inside the evidence room and finds a bootprint. He asks Xavier if he was there with her when they found it, and at first, he says yes, but remembers that they split up. Simon realizes that it isn’t Maddie’s bootprint.

We returned to the computer room, where Nicole threatened the kid on the computer to get them off it. Moments later, the teacher comes back in, and Nicole asks the teacher if someone wipes off stuff on the computer, if is it gone forever, but he says the computer saves every three minutes.

Then, Simon talks to Maddie about the bootprint, but she wants to know why he bombed the college meeting. But he only wants to talk about Nicole and her suspicious activity.

Sandra is at the store, buying some alcohol, when she goes outside and sees Mr. South at the pump. Mr. South tries to talk to her, telling her he wouldn’t hurt Maddie.

Next, the afterlife crew gathers to try to ignite Maddie’s memory. Finally, Simon confronts Maddie and tells her he has no choice but to go after Nicole, and she agrees.

Why did Nicole record the video?

While frantically trying to delete the video from the school computer, Simon walks in and tells Nicole not to bother, as they already know the truth.

However, Nicole tells him the real reason she recorded and needed the money was that she wanted to go to the same school as Simon and Maddie. She wasn’t going to be able to get into the school she wanted and wanted to be close to them.
