Every ghost has a backstory; it's maybe the most important thing about them. But that's not the only James story that the new season is riffing on. Another one, titled "The Romance of Certain Old Clothes," is the source for both the title and story of episode 8 of Bly Manor, which stands apart from the rest in several ways. Filmed in black-and-white and set centuries before the rest of the season's episodes, "The Romance of Certain Old Clothes" is essentially an origin story for how Bly Manor first came to be haunted by vengeful ghosts. It stars Hill House alums Kate Siegel and Katie Parker as Viola and Perdita, two rich sisters who end up competing for the love of the same man and killing each other, eventually becoming two of the house's first specters: The Lady in the Lake and the faceless spirit crawling around the attic, respectively. Siegel is married to Haunting showrunner Mike Flanagan , and the two frequently collaborate on his film and TV projects. Siegel starred in Hush , Flanagan's Netflix horror film about a deaf woman being stalked by a killer in her home, and had a major role in The Haunting of Hill House as Theo Crain.

Mormons are one of the few remaining groups with healthy women. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. Who knows, but I think it was especially hard for the moms of young men. The right age for getting married varies depends for men and women. And on my part, I felt I needed to go out and live harder, party more, be more social, etc.
