Where was the priest’s ghost on The Haunting of Bly Manor?
During The Haunting of Bly Manor Episode 8, we found out a priest was killed on the grounds. Did his ghost show up on the series?
The Haunting of Bly Manor was a bittersweet ghost love story. Episode 8 brought us answers to the majority of our questions. We learned about the original ghost and why those who die on the grounds are trapped.
One of those who died in Episode 8 at the hands of the Lady in the Lake was the priest who married Viola and Arthur. Dying on the property meant that he would remain there, but was he a ghost we saw during the season.
Plague doctor, young boy, and the soldier ghost
There were a few ghosts that popped up now and then in the background. The plague doctor ghost was one of the first to appear, and later we got to know the young boy.
In the background now and then, a soldier ghost would pop up, although he wasn’t included in the backstory in Episode 8. There were a few others around, but it was never clear enough to make out what time period these ghosts were meant to be from. Some seemed like a few centuries ago.
There wasn’t one dressed in the robes of someone connected to the church. That’s how this ghost would appear considering the clothing he was wearing at the time of his death. Only Hannah kept changing clothes, refusing to admit that she had died.
It’s just a small thing for the series. However, it did mean the story of the priest being killed in the house was a shock.
That being said, we did get to briefly meet the priest before his death with the wedding. It’s just a shame that he didn’t pop up in the background…unless we missed him. We’ll be happy to be proven wrong!
