The episode follows their investigation into the death, which they thoroughly believe was murder.

Then the mother-and-son duo try to track down the real murderer of the woman, as patriarch Mike disapproves. Mike notes that the death was listed was "drowning due to cardiac arrest," but that's just not enough for Frankie.

The Middle fans are loving the eerie premise and took to Twitter fan-out over the episode, as well as reveal their own haunted tales.
