Hetty

Hetty is Samantha’s great-great-great-grandmother who built Woodstone Mansion and will fiercely protect its honor.

Personality

Hetty Woodstone has very outdated views on society. As a child her parents employed children in their factory and her husband did the same. She also doesn’t believe women should vote, use their voice in any way to disrespect their husband, and that their place is in the home. She also is not a fan of the Irish, believing them to be thieves and liars and often insulting them through demeaning stereotypes. She has a personality much like those who lived in the upper class during the last 19th century. Hetty would not consider herself a people person nor one to go with the flow.

She can be very materialistic, pretentious, and often looks down her nose at others who are not as rich as she was in life. She enjoys the finer things in life such as money, fancy dresses, and dinner parties, and takes a lot of pride in her home. She has very specific ideas of how things should be done and can be a bit stubborn in her stance. She can also be very critical, often pointing out all the things she does not understand or like about Sam or Jay’s life choices. She is also very judgemental as to the way Sam dresses. Hetty is a smidge xenophobic as evidenced by her disdain with people of Irish descent. Furthermore, she confesses that she wasn’t a good person in life as she stole from and exploited others, profiting for her own, or as she sees it, her husband’s wealth. We see a little of her living personality chip away over the course of the first season. In the episode “Viking Funeral”, Alberta convinces Hetty to vote for her as the ghost representative by telling her how hard it was for women to vote,how much harder it was for women of color, and how people had to sacrifice for that right. In “Possession”, we see a more regretful side to Hetty as she reminisces on years lost putting her husband’s needs before her own and not living the life she should’ve.

By “The Vault”, Hetty has grown less obedient as inspired by her observations of Sam. In this episode, she demonstrates growing confidence and strength as she states that she has changed for the better and that she has learned how to speak her mind and that everyone deserves respect, even the Irish.

As we see in ‘Thorapy‘, Hetty is not used to being romantically desired or wanted as her husband often engaged in affairs in other women. We also know she was neglected as a child. So when Issac tries to come on to her, she is excited by the possibility that she is being seduced and craves the romantic attention. She claims that she knew that there was a possibility that they had romantic tension and then begs for him to kiss her, exclaiming that she wants him. However, later that evening, Isaac comes to Hetty to apologize for his behavior. When she sees that he is having trouble with expressing himself, Hetty summons him to sit next to her and lets him know that they have been friends for 130 years and that he can tell her anything. He then admits that he has feelings for Nigel, not her. Hetty responds with love and acceptance stating that he has not been living a lie but that instead for the time that shes known him, he has been her dear friend. They then reminisce about a worker who was in the house and comment on his appearance and she regrets that they haven’t been doing this all along.

In “Attic Girl”, Hetty becomes more resolute in using her voice to stand up for what’s right. She is appalled when she learns of Stephanie, the teenage ghost’s betrayal of Pete’s trust and in tricking the others to play what she called a harmless prank on Sam. She takes great offense to Stephanie’s behavior toward her fourth great granddaughter and leads the others in agreeing to not attend the ghost prom at all.

While Hetty still holds some antiquated views on a woman’s role in business, she has shown to have an advance understanding of economics.

History

Born into money, Hetty has a history common of most girls born in the 1800s. Her parents were emotionally distant and ran a factory that employed children at least 7 years of age. As a young child, Hetty could see Thorfinn whose name she was unable to pronounce so she called him Gordon and mistook him for one of the servants of the house. Thorfinn would sing Hetty to sleep every night which Hetty looks back on fondly.

As a young woman, Hetty was married to her second cousin Elias to whom she was offered by her father as a means of closing a land deal and she was deemed as the best choice as opposed to her sister Margaret who had a mustache. She remembers the occasion as a negative one commenting that he arrived “late, drunk, and smelling of the maid’s perfume.” The marriage turned out to be just as horrible if not more so than her wedding, as Elias could not keep it in his pants and affairs became the norm. This led Hetty to turn to various means of coping such as the use of cocaine and laudanum.

During the series premiere, Hetty is present at the bedside of her great great granddaughter Sophia’s death bed. She briefly gets to speak to her after her passing but Sophia ends up getting “sucked off”, instead of joining her in the perpetual purgatory known as Woodstone Mansion. Upon Sophia’s passing, her great niece, Samantha and her husband Jay inherit the large estate and promptly move in with plans to turn the house into a Bed and Breakfast.

Due to the era in which she lived, Hetty’s conservative and outdated views often conflict with Samantha’s more progressive personality. She is baffled by her style of dress, her makeup choices, and the fact that Samantha works while her husband cooks. She often gives Samanta advice based around the notion of keeping a man loyal, something she was unable to do in life. Over time, we learn that Hetty spent most of her life putting her needs second to that of her husband and deeply regrets it, imploring Sam to take advantage of every moment and live her life to the fullest.

In “Possession”, Hetty’s spirit becomes transfused with Jay’s body. While in it she loses her ability to see or hear her fellow spirits but gains the ability to eat to which she binges just about everything she can get her hands on including trying peanut butter, sour patch kids, and Cheetos for the first time. She also expresses a desire to go to France.

In “The Vault”, she expresses to her philandering husband Elias, who was trapped inside an impenetrable vault for the last 130 years, that she has changed much to his anger, and she is no longer afraid to speak her mind. She tried to convince him to change as well as he will be stuck there for eternity and that it would be a good time to use that time wisely. He refuses saying that he will never change to which Hetty tells him to go to hell. The floor opens up, red light radiates from the ground and down he goes. This causes Hetty to briefly suspect that she may possibly have the power to send ghosts to Hell. She later concludes that that cannot be true but still enjoys holding that possibility over the ghosts for fun.

Thereafter we see an evolution of Hetty‘s character. This woman who seemed haughty and pretentious seems to change in contact with the Livings and other ghosts, despite herself. In ‘Ghostwriter‘ she cares, “certainly regretting it afterwards” as she says, to see Flower who is sad installed in her room. (Indeed, Pete wants to watch basketball only with boys while Flower, is very knowledgeable on the subject) Against all odds, when she hasn’t lived like this in her whole life, Hetty tells her “Flower, I spent far too long forgiving the sins of men in my lifetime. I see no reason why we need to put up with it in the afterlife. Do not just sit there, and take being disrespected by a man. Do something about it.Flower asks her if she became a feminist and Hetty replies that if it’s not about supporting women who handle money or ride bikes then yes, she is a feminist.

In “Trevor’s Pants“, we meet David Woodstone, who is actually Hetty‘s great-great-great-grandson but also one of Trevor‘s old friends. In fact, the night Trevor died, he and his friends and co-workers (including David Woodstone), came into David‘s parents Woodstome Mansion to celebrate another colleague’s promotion.

In the season two premiere, “Spies” we learn that Hetty does not handle relationship conflict well at all. In fact, during life, she often bottled up her own frustrations and resentments with her husband, Elias, and turned to morphine and other substances to help deal with the internal pain that stemmed from her troubled marriage.

In “Alberta’s Podcast,” Hetty complains to Sam about her broken washing machine and how the noise emanating from the laundry room is keeping her from being able to take her daily naps. Sam claims that Jay was supposed to fix it, and she then finds out that he actually spent that time playing Super Mario Brothers. Flower finds Hetty in the laundry frustrated that Jay did not fix the washing machine but rather adds more clothes to it and turned it back on. She suggests that Hetty can deal with a broken washing machine by simply sitting on top of it. After she does this, she experiences a sensation unfamiliar, yet, relaxing and soothing to her. Later, she finds Alberta very upset that creepy Todd is back and she tells her to relax in a calm manner, a behavior that the normally uptight Hetty does not display. The Ghosts are stunned by her language and her stance and they ask if she is ill. She replies that her relaxed demeanor is due to her “magical encounter” with the washing machine, exclaiming that the effect on her is “one of the great mysteries of the universe.Flower then responds that the vibrations of the washing machine aroused her which is why she feels so good. Mortified, Hetty hurries past the group, imploring them to not look at her. However, it would not be the first or last time she took advantage of the broken washing machine. Hetty passes by the rattling noise in the laundry room in a desperate attempt to ignore it. However, her attempts to do some prove futile, as she turns back toward the laundry room.

Following her second trip to the laundry room, Hetty finds Flower in the living room and, feeling ashamed, admits that she succumbed to her demons and sat on the washing machine again. Flower states that it is okay, but Hetty disagrees stating what she has done is immoral and wrong. Flower tells her that her body belongs to her and she has the freedom to do as she pleases. Hetty believes that this may be because her husband has passed away but Flower states that her body has belonged to her all her life and that getting a man’s permission to feel pleasure is an effort by men to control women. Hetty seems to understand but still believes that men are needed to design and manufacture washing machines. When Flower responds that women can do those things too, Hetty appears to be excited at this news, exclaiming that it is a good time to be alive.

At the conclusion of the episode, Hetty goes outside to find Jay accepting a delivery for a brand new washing machine that has been promoted as being one of the quietest on the market. She is very disappointed demanding that Jay not get rid of the old washing machine; that it is working just fine. Once he leads the delivery men to install the new appliance, Hetty says a sad goodbye to the old machine, stating that she would never forget its spin cycle. Flower then finds her and says that she can do other things to achieve “the feeling.”

In life, Hetty’s husband was unfaithful, and engaged in several affairs. Most notably, he conducted a relationship with their Irish maid, Molly, a choice that made Hetty resent Molly for well over 150 years. During “Halloween 2: The Ghost of Hetty’s Past”, a seance that Hetty suggested that Sam and Jay perform to try to liven up a “dead” Halloween party results in bringing back Molly’s spirit which greatly upsets Hetty. She becomes frustrated as to why Molly, whom she considered an adulteress for sleeping with her husband, was able to get to Heaven while she remains on this Earthly plane. When Sam suggests that Molly being back is her opporutnity to forgive her and get closure, which could possibly result in her moving on, Hetty scoffs at the very idea of forgiveness and closure with someone like Molly.

After Sam convinces both women to meet her in the vault to search for a lost earring, she is accidently locked in with them both, invoking immediate panic. Hetty and Molly are both upset with Sam for misleading them, and as they both talk about their connection to Elias, Hetty learns that Molly was persued by Elias. She feared rejecting him as she needed her job to support her child, as her husband had died in the facotry owned by the Woodstones. Hetty responds that she never loved her husband and that she had to marry him so that her father could close a land deal. The two ghostly women find that they have more in common than originally believed; that they were both victims of Elias’ manipulation, ego, and perceived power. Hetty’s demeanor softens as she and Molly discuss their shared detest for Elias, the common interest allowing them to put their grievances toward one another away.

Upon being released from the vault, Hetty and Molly say goodbye, with Hetty commenting that she enjoyed getting to really know Molly. She is however, disheartened when Molly gets to return to Heaven, leaving her earthbound and attempts, albeit unsuccessfully to literally ride Molly’s coat tails in an effort to move on.

Appearance

As a wife of a well-known robber baron of the late 1800s, Hetty spends the days of her afterlife, dressed like most well-to-do women of the gilded age in America. She wears a long sleeved layered teal green day dress with a basque bodice and a medium sized bustle. The top of her dress is buttoned up to her neck. The dress is accented by a tall neckline which consists of a white laced layer underneath. She also wears moderate heels which she has recently learned how to run in (from ‘Alberta’s Fan‘ episode). Hetty wears her curly auburn hair up in a high bun while two loose tendrils gracefully frame either side of her face. Her makeup is very conservative to nonexistent. She is a taller woman, about 5’8, with fair skin and blue eyes. She wears earring studs in either ear.
