Most people don't believe in the supernatural, but what happens when you take these sceptics and put them in a place where strange and unexplainable things keep happening?

In this series, unsuspecting members of the public are taken by a trusted friend or confidante to a location long associated with frightening myths and legends.

Once there, they are put through a series of meticulously staged events that bring these terrifying tales to life, enough to put fear and doubt into the heart of the most cynical or hardened person.

Then, when the victim is close to breaking point, the truth is revealed, and the cameras come out to film their reactions.

One of the most elaborate prank shows ever conceived, how will the subjects respond when they find out it's been a set-up all along?

As Teresa prepares herself and her daughters for her husband's future, she simultaneously is faced with cheating rumors and lingering tension within the group.

Melissa is on the brink of celebrating her 40th birthday, and while her career is booming, she still thinks one thing is missing from her perfect family.

Margaret is forced to revisit repercussions from a legal battle while struggling with her mother's decision to start a new chapter. And a jab at Teresa's alleged affair leads to new tension among the ladies.

Dolores questions her future with David and must make the ultimate decision about their relationship. Meanwhile, after a heated argument with Jackie, the women are forced to pick sides.

Jackie opens up to her friends and family about her eating disorder in hopes to become an advocate for others. With her newfound sense of self, she learns to advocate for herself amongst the other ladies.

Jennifer undergoes a major physical transformation that has her feeling as confident as ever; but after her daughter and friends accuse her of acting like a bully, she is left feeling rattled.
