The Haunting Of Bly Manor: Where To Find Every Hidden Ghost
These ghosts range from easy-to-spot to almost impossible.
The fact that Netflix's The Haunting Of Bly Manor is absolutely lousy with hidden ghosts probably won't be a surprise to you if you were a fan of its predecessor, The Haunting Of Hill House,. Hopefully, you already had your eyes peeled while watching, searching every possible nook and cranny for carefully hidden spooks--but this year, the art of the ghost hunt changed things up a bit. Not only were the Bly background ghosts a bit harder to spot, they're actually characters in and of themselves. Once you start your search, you're going to start noticing some recurring faces prowling around in the shadows, and some are much easier to recognize than others.
We went over every episode of Bly with a fine toothed comb to play the world's creepiest game of Where's Waldo and came away with over 50 hidden ghosts to share with you. This is your guide to finding them all, in order of appearance.
Naturally, we're going to be getting into some slight spoiler territory here as we work our way through all nine episodes, so please proceed with caution. The actual story and context of each ghost is something we'll leave up to you to figure out, but this guide will tell you exactly where to look for each. Let us know if you spotted any we missed in the comments below!
