"We just want to confirm the fact that she's haunted by this, that Pelant has had an impact on them," executive producer Stephan Nathan tells TVGuide.com of the spooky twist. "While he's gone, the impact on everything that he's done is still with them, which will inform some other stories in the future, although Pelant won't really be a part of them.
