"You know when I was alive, women couldn't even be a butler! You could be a wench, a midwife, or a whore," Nancy tells Pete (Richie Moriarty) after Pete informs her that Sam is not a ghostly butler. Pete had grabbed Nancy from the basement to act as his fake girlfriend in front of the other ghosts. Do Pete and Nancy end up having an iota of romantic potential?

Who plays Nancy on 'Ghosts'?

Pete's problems began when the ghosts are left to fend for themselves after the television goes into standby mode. Sasappis (Román Zaragoza) blurts out that he overheard Jay saying that Pete planned to tell Alberta (Danielle Pinnock) that he likes her.

Desperate to distract his fellow ghosts, Pete blurts out that he does like someone ... one of the cholera ghosts in the basement. Luckily for Pete, Nancy the cholera ghost is totally game to come upstairs and pretend to be his girlfriend. She challenges him to actually grow a spine instead of constantly trying to broker ghostly peace.

Ironically, Pete does finally stand up for himself. After Nancy calls Pete out for his desire to be liked by everyone, Pete is finally fed up with his fake girlfriend. He breaks up with Nancy in front of the other ghosts. Naturally Nancy quickly declares that she was the one who broke up with Pete and declares she's returning to the basement.

Will Betsy Sodaro return to 'Ghosts'?

We'd love to see Betsy make a glorious return as Nancy in Ghosts. While there's no official confirmation that Nancy's ghost will reappear in future episodes, it'd be easy for her to reappear given that she's downstairs in the basement.

Thorfinn the Viking (Devan Chandler Long) also expressed romantic interest in Nancy following her fake breakup with Pete. We'd love to see their romance blossom in a future funny storyline!

You can catch new episodes of Ghosts every Thursday at 9 p.m EST on CBS.
