ten Kayla and Courtney
This is one of the only episodes of Catfish many seasons that had nothing to do with a romantic relationship. It had to do with the supernatural, and whether it was possible to talk to the dead.

A few years later, he committed suicide in prison. But now a woman named Courtney claims Kayla’s father is contacting her.
