In the upcoming Wednesday, August 5 episode of GHI titled, "Spirits of Italy," the crew return to Italy to investigate a Tuscan castle and its 700 year-old legend of its doomed lover. One of the investigators gets the shock of her life when she sees a face that could be that of the doomed lover herself and Robb gets uninvited from the castle by an occupant who has been dead for some time. The team will also travel to Genoa to investigate the Palazzo Ducale, home to the city's doges and their prisoners. As the team search the cells for the spirit of a political martyr, they get a bump in the night that seems paranormal - but is the city itself responsible for the palace's haunted reputation?
