Paranormal Lockdown made a strong debut last year in its rookie season for paranormal investigators Nick Groff (Ghost Adventures) and Katrina Weidman (Paranormal State) with their novel approach of locking themselves into some of the most haunted locations across the United States for 72 hours. While the Paranormal Lockdown Season 1 investigation of Hinsdale House was the scariest episode of the season for many fans, Nick and Katrina upped the ante for their recent Halloween special, investigating the UK’s equivalent of the Amityville Horror House, the Black Monk House. Well, TLC released a press screener of the Paranormal Lockdown Season 2 premiere airing December 16, and if you thought that the Hinsdale and Black Monk episodes were scary, buckle your seatbelts, paranormal fans, because in the proverbial words of Bachman Turner Overdrive, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”
As noted in the headline, mild spoilers follow. Or to be more precise, some teasers, to give you a little taste of what’s to come without spoiling the fun.
The Return Of A Paranormal State Favorite
Paranormal Lockdown loves to have guest stars, and this episode features the psychic talents of one of Weidman’s former colleagues at Paranormal State, Michelle Belanger. Belanger is not only a psychic but a well-renowned expert and author on all things occult. Fans of Paranormal State can attest that Belanger is known for keeping her cool during intense investigations, and she proves that skill once again in channeling some serious energies right from the get-go.
Belanger picks up on some vibrations of some very strange objects found at their first location for Season 2, the Monroe House, in Hartford, Indiana. While no local historians have ever been able to pin down a particular tragedy that occurred on the premises, Monroe House has become known for occult and ritualistic activity that occurred there and is considered one of the most — if not the most — haunted houses in Indiana, according to the history revealed in the Paranormal Lockdown episode.

What Is The Scariest Thing Nick Groff Has Ever Done?
On this episode of Paranormal Lockdown, Groff and Weidman document two pieces of physical evidence that any paranormal investigator would envy. The only possible “debunking” of these two things is they are faked, and anyone who has met these two would never doubt their sincerity about paranormal investigations. That’s all that can be said without giving away too much, but paranormal investigation fans and skeptics should be very impressed with the physical evidence in this Paranormal Lockdown Season 2 premiere.
We also get a peek at some of Nick and Katrina’s new gadgets, including one new device that serves as a very refined version of a spirit box, with very clear verbal communication. While those more skeptical fans may question the accuracy of such devices, this yields some pretty impressive results in the Monroe House episode of Paranormal Lockdown.
Groff has had plenty of ghost adventures — pun absolutely intended — and has been known to take hauntings home with him from Paranormal Lockdown Season 1, but Groff finds himself in a precarious situation that he claims is the scariest thing he’s ever done yet while at Monroe House. Let’s just put it this way: if you’re claustrophobic you might have a problem with this episode. If you’re afraid of the dark, this episode might be particularly terrifying. And if you’re afraid of both, you’ll probably agree that this really is the scariest thing Groff has ever done for the sake of collecting paranormal evidence.
However, not only will his bravery benefit their paranormal investigation, but it may just reveal why Monroe House is so haunted. This scary segment leads directly to a major discovery, as revealed in the video teaser below.
A Paranormal Lockdown And Paranormal Investigation First?
A preview clip released by TLC reveals that Groff and Weidman find what appears to be human bones when they returned to the crawlspace with the Monroe House owner. At that point, they had to stop and call in the police to investigate the site. That’s certainly something never seen before on Paranormal Lockdown, and quite possibly the first time in paranormal investigation history on TV that a paranormal team has uncovered real evidence of a crime.
Which is to say, the you-know-what gets real in this episode. And while it wasn’t stated explicitly, Paranormal Lockdown fans should probably expect some kind of follow-up in the future on this one.
The verdict on the Paranormal Lockdown Season 2 premiere at Monroe House? At some point, Paranormal Lockdown will probably reach a plateau where each new episode isn’t scarier than the last, but Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman haven’t reached that point yet, and keep increasing the intensity with each new episode. Paranormal Lockdown takes a serious, scientific approach to each investigation, maintaining the human element in each location’s story and getting some of the scariest results of any paranormal show. For paranormal fans, it doesn’t get any better than this. (They also have the coolest opening credits and theme song by far.)
Paranormal Lockdown Season 2 premieres on TLC December 16 at 9 p.m. ET. Here’s another teaser video for Paranormal Lockdown Season 2 when Nick and Katrina investigate St. Ignatius Hospital in S2E4.
