The Divide was a place between the world of the living and the dead in the 2016 movie.


After the Ghostbusters reversed the polarity of the Portal, Rowan North was pulled in after the Ghostbusters shot him in the crotch. Just as he was sucked in, he grabbed Abby Yates and took her with him. They arrived in an in-between place, the divide which bridges the world of the living with the world of the dead. Erin Gilbert tied a winch line around her and soon went in to save Abby. She shot Rowan's hand. He winced, releasing Abby from his grip. Erin grabbed Abby while Rowan passed into the world of the dead. Erin told Abby she wasn't going to leave him twice. Patty Tolan and Jillian Holtzmann pulled the line connected to the winch. Both Erin and Abby were yanked backwards, leaving the divide, and returned to the world of the living. In the process, both women's hair turned white after they reached the red zone of the Divide. Later, it was revealed that Erin and Abby wrote a book chronicling the event called "A Glimpse into the Unknown: A Journey into a Portal; Catching Sight of the Other Dimension: Discovering the Undiscoverable: A Curiosity Piqued and Peaked.".
