All right, either you bleed Ghostfacers red or you don't. If Spruce wanted to start a startup and Maggie's heart was in the roller derby, who am I to stop them? But Harry -- I-I couldn't let him give in to his girl. I mean, she -- she called the Ghostfacers stupid. Stupid! Can you -- can you believe that? You know, I-I don't care how much money her daddy's hedge fund has. I just couldn't watch Harry become a corporate stooge.

Amidst a prank war Sam and Dean travel to Richardson, Texas to visit a reputedly haunted house where they run into Ed and Harry repeatedly. The legend of the ghost thought to be haunting the house is that of Mordechai Murdoch but the Winchesters are unable to find any evidence other than what is posted on the Ghostfacers website. Sam thinks that as people view the website, they are willing into reality what they read there and therefore creating the ghost. In order to “kill off” Mordechai, the boys tell Ed and Harry that they have found out that being shot with iron rounds will kill him. They wait for the boys to post it on their website, and enough people view it for it to become real.
Sam and Dean return to the house to finish off Mordechai, but Ed and Harry are there and tell them that their servers crashed, so the new legend will not manifest. As Mordechai attacks them, Dean sets the house on fire, figuring that without that part of the legend Mordechai won’t exist. Sam and Dean farewell Ed and Harry – Sam with a prank call from a Hollywood producer and Dean with a fish in the back of their car.
After their experience with Mordechai Murdoch, Harry and Ed decide to start their own ghost hunting team called the Ghostfacers along with Ed's adopted sister Maggie, Spruce and intern Alan J. Corbett. Their mission is to investigate the leap year ghost of Morton House, the team arrives to set-up base camp at the house, and proceed to try and document contact with a ghost.
When a ghost beings attacking people at Sandover Bridge & Iron Inc., employees Dean Smith and Sam Wesson team up to figure out what is going on, during their research they come across the Ghostfacers website and watch a tutorial by Harry and Ed on ghost hunting. In the video they go over three rules to fight the supernatural. First thing is to figure out what you're up against, and then kill it. Secondly they go over the main weakness of ghosts, the first being salt, and also demonstrate a trick they learned from the Winchesters (who still suck ass) by putting rock salt in shotgun shells, the second weapon is iron which dissipates spirits instantly, and Ed calls "pure power in your hand."
The video ends with Harry and Ed describing the final way to get rid of a ghost -- burning it's remains.
- Ed also appears in the tie-in comic, The Beast with Two Backs.
- Ed's last name, Zeddmore, is a reference to Winston Zeddmore from the Ghostbusters film series.
