Without thinking twice, Mrs. Grose knows exactly who the governess has described. When the governess witnesses the first appearance of the ghost of Miss Jessel, she goes to Mrs. Grose once again to consult with her about her experience. Although the governess makes the implication that the ghost is in fact Miss Jessel, Mrs. Grose agrees to the possibility that it could be the ghost of the former governess. The governess is reliable because she describes the ghosts of Peter Quint and Miss Jessel without having met them or seen them in any way. Another point to validate that the governess did witness apparitions is that she was not the only person at Bly aware of their presence.

The second individual I interviewed is a grey solidarity witch, with two familiars and five children. As described by the informant, a grey witch is a person who “will do no harm unless it 's for protection of myself or my loved ones, or those that cannot protect themselves who ask for help.” A solidarity witch is a person who focusses their magic on healing and helping.
