Brandon Scott Jones, star of ‘Ghosts,’ Teases Isaac’s ‘Unfinished Business’ in a ‘DandD’ Episode (Exclusive)
In an all-new episode of Ghosts, a few ghosts emerge from the woodwork — or, in this case, the shed behind the haunted home Sam (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar) share — causing more spirited activity in the house.
Thursday at 9 p.m., in the episode “Dandamp;D,”

“You can’t keep denying who you are,” he said.
“I hope that, in the end, that is his journey — that he discovers who he is and, perhaps, that is a chance for him to move on.”
