The Episode Review

With Goosebumps Episode 9, terror is back in town! It finally reveals Mr. Bratt’s genuine personality, intriguingly leading to Slappy’s resurrection. What’s fascinating is the twisted resemblance between Mr. Bratt and Harold, hinting at their connection in an unexpected manner.

The episode brings Slappy, the doll, back to life by possessing a corpse extracted from a coffin by Mr. Bratt. Previously, Slappy might have shown a different side while manipulating events through Harold. The upcoming episode could reveal a significant shift in Slappy’s demeanor, as he is now entirely independent.

The episode delves into the personal lives of the protagonists, particularly Margot and Lucas. The couple faces a rough patch. Interestingly, there’s a resemblance to what occurred between Margot’s parents when Sarah moved out to Seattle and Colin stayed back in Port Lawrence.
