'Nancy Drew' Episode 6 sees the teen sleuth strike a 'deal' with Horseshoe Bay's 'newest and most suspect widower'

Spoilers ahead for Episode 5 'The Case of the Wayward Spirit' of 'Nancy Drew' 

In the last episode of The CW's 'Nancy Drew', Nancy (Kennedy McMann) literally dug deeper to get closer to Lucy Sable's killer. Enlisting the help of the new entrant Owen (Miles Gaston Villanueva), Nancy goes to dig under her high school in order to find clues about Lucy Sable's death.

The ghost of Dead Lucy has been haunting Nancy since the season premiered. While the show was toeing the line between a murder mystery and a supernatural show, with 'The Case of the Wayward Spirit', it has made it clear that it definitely has strong supernatural elements.

Earlier, Nancy discovered that Karen (Alvina August) was actually friends with Lucy Sable. The detective had earlier denied knowing Lucy at all. So after Nancy finds a picture of the two of them together in school, she tries talking to Karen.


At the Gala the Claw is hosting, Nancy runs into Karen who, when confronted, tells her that the two were actually best friends. But she started acting strangely after a particular party and then someone killed her.

Karen says that Lucy was the whole reason she joined the police force, but by the time she cleared the academy, the case had become cold.

At the same time, Karen warns Nancy against any further digging into Lucy or Tiffany — Nancy is set to be arraigned the next day for breaking in to steal evidence linked to Tiffany's death.

While going through some old footage she happens upon, Nancy sees Lucy chatting with none other than Ryan Hudson (Riley Smith). Nancy has long suspected Ryan to have something to do with Tiffany's death.


She is not alone — Tiffany's sister Laura Tandy (Stevie Lynn Jones) also believes that Tiffany's death was not of natural causes. But fans have also theorized that he might be involved in Lucy's death.

So when Nancy discovers footage showing Lucy chatting with Ryan back in their high school days, she is intrigued.

According to the official synopsis of the next episode titled 'The Mystery of Blackwood Lodge', when Nancy is trying to uncover the truth about a long-buried history between Lucy Sable and Ryan Hudson, she finds herself in the curious position of having to strike a deal with Horseshoe Bay's newest and most suspect widower.

What is this so-called deal? Horseshoe Bay's newest and most suspect widower is Ryan Hudson. What does she discover in the next episode that has her striking a deal with him? 'Nancy Drew' airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm ET/PT pm on The CW.
