Ready to Scare - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: The gang investigates the trail of limestone to a manhole in the middle of the street, with nothing around it. But when Daphne is putting on her "Wallowing galoshes" boots, somehow a small brick wall just materializes in the middle of the street for her to sit on - and then vanishes a couple shots later.
