Salem’s Ghosts: The Lynn Lady centers on the Bishop family. We follow daughter Marina Bishop, a podcaster and true crime/paranormal enthusiast born and raised in Salem, Massachusetts. Marina hosts a podcast called “Twisted Salem” with her long-time best friend Tyler Aldene, on whom she has largely emotionally depended since the strange disappearance of her father a year before our story begins.
Marina’s mother, Patricia Bishop, is a history professor and career-minded woman who is doing her best to keep moving forward after the sudden vanishing of her husband. For Patricia’s emotional support in this trying time, she has largely turned to Ashley Knightsbane. Ashley is an associate professor at the same school as Patricia as well as a part-time psychic medium who works at “Corwin’s Curiosity Shoppe” in downtown Salem.
Also in the mix are a party crew of early 20 year-old’s named Drew, Mason, and Will who are, as a group, entangled in a mysterious, terrifying car accident early in the piece, from which not all escape. The psychic reverberations of this accident go on to also ensnare the Bishops as the piece progresses through its six episodes.
The other half of The Lynn Lady follows a young man and woman in 1941. We first meet Frances Cochran, a late teenager who’s got her heart set on leaving her hometown of Lynn, Massachusetts. To this end, Frances works at a leather tanning company in nearby Salem, where she is well-liked among the staff. She’s precocious, curious, strong-willed, and always ready for adventure.
Contrasting her, we meet Al Pleasance, a compulsive poet and wandered whose home life is brutal, history is shadowy, and future looks uncertain. When Al and Frances chance upon each other on the streets of Lynn, their connection is immediate and compelling.
Soon, the young couple goes on their first date to Marvin’s One-Stop, a local diner. But, the young romance can’t last forever and before long the 1941 story turns into something far darker than it at first appears.
