SEASON 2 EPISODE 8. (30 )
"Message from Clara "
November 10 1959.
** Spoiler Alert **
SYNOPSIS: A woman teaching English to a group of adult immigrants is given a cameo brooch by one
of her students, a butcher from the "Old Country", and suddenly she starts writing in a language that she
has no knowledge of. In fact, Miss Morrison is writing in the words of a woman, Clara, who has been dead
for five years . . . a murder victim. But why is Clara communicating and what does she have to say (?)
COMMENTARY: How can someone write a passage in a language that he or she has never studied and does
not understand (?) In the annals of the paranormal, the answer to that question would surely be what is known
known as automatic writing: the ability to write messages without conscious knowledge or control . . .
