'Urgent' Episode Recap

The season premiere of Ghost Hunters picked up exactly where the last episode left off, with Jason and Grant leaving Hawaii and preparing for a case to help a family. The rest of the team stayed behind in Hawaii to analyze the evidence. Amy and Dave, aided by Jason and Grant via video conferencing, presented the evidence that they team found at the Pacific Aviation Museum. The team recorded voices, including two very clear EVPs that sound like yelling in the hangar. The team also caught video evidence of a light that Amy and Adam had seen earlier in the evening.

Back in Rhode Island, Jason and Grant, along with Steve and KJ, headed off to the Reid House to help a family that was fearful of the paranormal activity in their home. Steve and KJ got faint geophone hits on the stairs, indicating that something might be trying to walk down them. Jason and Grant found high EMFs in the "bad" living room (which makes the homeowner's daughter uncomfortable) and more upstairs in the bedrooms. They heard voices and footsteps from the other room and some K2 hits. Steve and KJ encountered random EMF spikes on the stairs and Jason and Grant discovered even more EMF emitting devices in the basement. They conclude that the family needs to have it evaluated by an electrician to (hopefully) stop the "creepy" feelings. Upon evidence review, they do find a female laugh.

The Ghost Hunters Are Back! Watch a Sneak Peek of the Season Premiere

Ghost Hunters returns for an all new season this Wednesday! The episode will feature the results of the team's Pearl Harbor investigation (which aired in June) and the urgent case that caused Jason and Grant to leave Hawaii early.

The season premiere of Ghost Hunters, entitled Urgent, will air at 9 PM on the Syfy channel. 

Amy & Adam Talk About Their First Paranormal Experiences, Pranks, & More has a new interview online with Amy Bruni and Adam Berry. The TAPS duo talk about their experiences working with each other on the show, their start in the paranormal field, frightening encounters with the living (not the dead) on the road, Steve's hilarious reaction to a bug in the TAPS van, and more.
Amy: ...But anyways, wherever it was, there were huge bugs and Steve was in the TAPS van and Jay was in the van with them. They were looking at the cameras and this huge June bug flies into the van. And when Steve sees something like that all rational thought leaves him. There is no like it’s a bug, I’m going to calmly exit the van. It is I am going to kill it, I am going to freak out. And so he just starts grabbing at anything, the keyboard, the cameras, something to hit this bug with. And so Jay has to grab him and literally almost put him in a headlock until this bug went away. And we didn’t know what was going on and we see this whole van like rocking all over the place. Like what is going on in there and it was all from some little bug and Steve was freaking out.

Reminder: Ghost Hunters International Season Finale Tonight on Syfy

Ghost Hunters International wraps ups its 2011 season tonight on Syfy at 9 PM! Reveals 2 Upcoming Books by Jason & Grant

While searching for Jason and Grant's newest young adult book, Ghost Hunt 2, two suggested books reveal upcoming publications from the TAPS team leaders.

The first is Ghost Files: The Collected Cases from Ghost Hunting and Seeking Spirits. Amazon lists this book's release date as September 13, 2011. From the description:
What did a paranormal investigation uncover at the Stanley Hotel in Colorado, the hotel built in 1903 that inspired Stephen King’s The Shining?
What is the chilling history behind the Rolling Hills Asylum in Batavia, New York?
What happened when a man was overcome by an evil entity as Jason and Grant surveyed his home?
How can a Connecticut woman seem to exist in two places at once?
In this hair-raising omnibus, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, founders of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (T.A.P.S.), reveal the memorable and spine-tingling cases featured in their smash-hit collections, Ghost Hunting andSeeking Spirits. From their never-seen-on-television adventures as budding paranormal investigators to the behind-the-scenes accounts of heart-pounding supernatural encounters featured on their popular show, these fascinating and frightening real life tales will keep you up at night!
As the title suggests, the book contains extracts from both Ghost Hunt and Seeking Spirits, which have been published previously. It is uncertain if the book will have have any new content that hasn't been seen before.

In this spine-tingling new series, the stars of TV’s GHOST HUNTERS introduce readers to a team of paranormal investigators who reunite to defeat a sinister force they unleashed long ago. . . . 
For fifteen years, Amber, Drew, and Trevor have barely been able to recall-let alone explain-what happened the terrifying night they decided to explore the old, abandoned Lowry House. According to local legend, the house was cursed by a dark past and inhabited by evil. It burst into flames on the night of their visit, leaving the friends traumatized and nearly dead with only vague memories of the frightening events they had witnessed inside. Now, on the eve of their high school reunion, they have gathered to reopen their investigation and figure out, once and for all, what took place that fateful night . . . before the supernatural entity they escaped threatens to overtake them again.
