Primary CanonEdit

Abby Yates and Erin Gilbert visited Holtzmann at her station in the Firehouse after Bennie dropped off take-out. She showed them a next-level device, a ghost transporter. The device, which looked like a leg-hold trap, was activated by her Keysight FieldFox Microwave Analyzer and its jaws closed shut. Holtzmann noted that she thought the device transported ghosts to Michigan. She then said, "Sorry, Lansing" suggesting that she had already sent something in the transporter and that it had arrived in Lansing, a city in Michigan.[1]
