TV Representations of the woman in white

The first time I came in contact with the legend of the woman in white was through Supernatural, and the lady had a number of tragic factors in her life that lead directly or indirectly to her death. One of those factors was being cheated on by her husband. The Woman in White is usually seen in rural settings. She is seen by the demographic of people that she targets or tests. These people usually relate in part to her creation. Failure of the test can be fatal or incredibly scary. For example in the Supernatural pilot episode the woman in white tempts men who are in are in relationships and if they’re unfaithful she kills them. These women have been seen all over the world and the core elements are the same. They have lost or been betrayed by their partner.

Tale tells we have some in Gippsland, and that’s not including the story of the white woman.
