We open webisode 7 with an Ed voiceover explaining that the team "Shamanologist," Kenneth Spruce, is going to "channel his ancestral powers" to set Janet's ghost free. I didn't realize 1/16 Cherokee came with ancestral powers, but I like where this is heading. I also like that they're not trying to kill her spirit per se, just set her free.
Spruce starts chanting, and it's the most amazing mix of Cherokee-sounding singing and Jewish phrases! I'm pretty sure I heard an Ishmael and a Yahweh in there. Notice, too, that he's put on some face paint in blue and white, which are traditional Jewish colors.
The camera pans over to Ambyr, who looks pretty confused by the whole thing. Spruce continues his chant for a while, drumming on this little handheld drum the whole time. He ends the proceedings with a little yelp, and the Facers take a deep breath and are ready to proceed.
As Spruce starts salting the film reel he was burning during his chanting, Ed comes over and tells Spruce he did a good job. He then asks if the chant was Cherokee or Hebrew, and Spruce replies that it was both. Ed is pretty impressed by that. He then tells the team to "pack it up and move out." He thinks they've done a good job, and that the whole thing is over. Considering this is only webisode 7, I'm guessing it's not. But Ed doesn't know that, of course.
An Ed voiceover informs the viewer that since the only known remains of Janet Myers have been burned to ashes, not to mention salted, the Facers are packing up after a job well done. Ed continues to say that "after we lost -- well, I lost -- our last intern to an evil apparition, it is redeeming to finally lay a spirit to rest." I really like how Corbett and his death has been used so far in these webisodes. It's not schmaltzy or overly emotional but feels true to how the characters would be feeling about it. Ed feels responsible for his death, so of course it makes sense for him to bring it up now. Even if it is in a self-serving voiceover!
Ambyr interrupts his musings by radioing to "Mr. Ed." Ha! Ed sort of chuckles at how ludicrous that is, and I can't believe they haven't made that joke before now! Ed instructs Ambyr that she can just call him Ed, but she again calls him Mr. Ed. She was radioing to tell him that she's all done cleaning up the equipment in the room she was assigned, but she missed the overhead camera, as Ed duly points out. Ambyr asks if Ed can see her on "this thingy" and promptly adjusts her boobs. Ed has the following reaction to that:
Awesome! Oh, Ambyr, you are so not subtle. Ed responds that he can see her. Then he clips his radio on his coat, thinking that it's off, and says, "and it's giving me a chubby." But since the radio is not actually off, Ambyr hears his and thinks Ed says she looks chubby. Ed has no response to this, but is embarrassed that she overheard him and bites his fist before he can say anything else.
Cut to Harry and Maggie tearing down equipment in another part of the theater. They're both in good spirits and are playfully hitting each other and we can all see where this will end up. Flirt alert! Maggie bats at him and calls "en garde" and then they're both playfully sparring. They end up in a semi-embrace.
Harry compliments Maggie, saying "she's been practicing." I assume he means practicing her Ghost Martial Arts, which was another video starring Ed and Harry. They spar a little more, giggling the whole time, then they end up in a real embrace. They are just about to kiss when Spruce interrupts them by singing fake porn music, all "bow chikka bow bow." "I caught you!" he says. Maggie and Harry are not pleased at all. But just when it looks like Harry is going to say something nasty to Spruce, the EMF meter goes off.
They're not sure what it is. Harry thinks it's something new, but Maggie thinks maybe it's Janet and they didn't free her. But Spruce is sure that his little ceremony worked. Maggie wonders, "what if it's not the film?" Ed and Spruce seem worried by that thought. I'm pretty sure she's right.
Cut to Ambyr still primping into the camera. She asks Ed how she looks, and Ed says that she's got a great jawline and flowing hair and is clearly not sure how to proceed with that. But he does say that the camera loves her. Ambyr is flattered by that, and giggles, saying, "I am ready for my close-up, Mr. Ed." The camera pans back over to her, and holy crap! Janet is right behind her!
Ambyr screams, and that's the end of the episode! Oh, man. Things aren't looking too good for Ambyr. What is it about interns that attracts malevolent spirits? I predict that webisode 8 will be a bad one for Ambyr, and she'll get killed or seriously injured. See you then, same Bat time, same Bat channel.
