Welcome to Ridge Valley High..
'...conference today in the auditorium.'
...tech billionaire Tobias Bloom's innovative center for learning where the youth of today become the leaders of tomorrow.
Tobias Bloom invested in Ridge Valley High after his Azalea phone became a world-wide phenomenon.
Good morning, class.
Now Ridge Valley High depends on his immersive teaching methods to engage and inspire.
We believe technology isn't just a tool..
...it's a way of life.
Have a sustainable day.
'What happened to that amusement park'
'to make the rides come to life after dark?'
'Was it Old Man Weatherby'
'the mysterious swinging ship operator?'
Or maybe kids playing a prank.
Or maybe because of something extra-terrestrial.
'Alright, more would be next week paranormals.'
I gotta get to school.
This is Daphne Blake signing off.
Aliens did not mess with that theme park, Daphne.
Uh, maybe they did, Velma, we don't know.
Um, statistically, it's 100% more likely that a system malfunction caused those rides to turn on.
You know, for a girl who doesn't believe in the paranormal you sure do keep up with my posts about it.
Yeah, well, somebody has to debunk you.
Plus, how else am I gonna keep up with my internet BFF while she's jettin' around the world?
Where are you now, anyway? Japan? Nigeria?
Actually, I have some exciting news.
I know I've been kind of cagey lately but I can finally tell you I've been...
Oh, about those prawn and ketchup chips you sent me from Tokyo?
They already arrived. Tastes like gerbil.
But in a good way. You know what I mean?
You know what gerbil tastes like?
Don't worry about it. 'But no, no.'
It's-it's not that. This is way better.
I'm in Ridge Valley! Ah!
Like where I live Ridge Valley?
Yeah, my mom got relocated and I start at your school today.
We can finally be best friends IRL.
Oh. I thought you'd be excited.
It's just... Just what?
Velma, you are my best friend. This is awesome news.
'Daphne, breakfast in 15.'
Uh, I gotta go, but I'll see you soon, I guess?
See you soon.
Where the youth of today..
It's just high school.
Hey, turn on my pump-up playlist.
Mm-hmm. Turn up the beat.
Alright, let's do this.
What should I wear?
I'm looking for the perfect first day of school outfit.
Oh, please tell me that's French toast I smell.
Good morning, mom. Good morning, sweetheart.
Ha, I called it!
Morning, dad. Good morning, darling.
So, mom, are you nervous about your new job?
I mean, I know your company was a big deal but Bloom Innovative, wow!
I'm so excited.
I'm just so thrilled to finally meet Tobias Bloom.
Mm. Hashtag job goals.
Is that not a thing anymore?
Not really. Oh!
Note to self, hashtag's out.
What about you, sweetheart?
I mean, your first day at a new school.
I mean, high school to boot.
Are you nervous? Not really.
I mean, if I can make it through school in Argentina and Japan California should be pretty easy.
And there is no way that Ridge Valley is any crazier than that school in the middle of the Baltic Sea.
Yeah, that school was definitely not certified.
You mean the principal with the eye patch and the missing teeth didn't tip you off?
There was nothing wrong with that school until it sank.
Mm, those are the moons of Saturn.
Anyway, school is gonna be awesome.
Things always have a way of working out.
Hey, Velma, turn that frown upside down.
Come on, Velma. Watch it.
'Velma!' 'What's her problem?'
'Oh, no.' 'Look where you're goin'.'
Ah, my muffin.
'Okay. Here you go, kiddo.' 'Great.'
It's gonna be great.
It's gonna be awesome.
Are you Daphne, the new girl?
Yea. Is it that obvious that I'm new here?
Oh, not at all, I was already e-mailed your full profile before you got here.
Oh, wow, that's..
I'm Carol, the senior advisor at Ridge Valley High and I'm also the tour guide for new students.
'Heads up!' Ooh.
Legitimate Tulip, they're my favorite band.
Uh, okay, never heard of them.
You almost just got smacked in the face.
I did? Uh-huh.
Guess I lucked out. It's kind of my thing.
'Welcome to another beautiful day at Ridge Valley.'
Wow, this is incredible.
'Just a reminder, it's World Appreciation Week.'
Hello, Daphne Blake. Hello.
Pretty cool, huh? Yeah.
Since our school is sponsored by Bloom Innovative we get to beta test all of their latest inventions.
Including the Azalea-9 phone.
It's brand-new. So here.
'Griffin Griffiths. He's got blue eyes.'
'He's 6'1".' 6'2".
Thinks he's the cutest guy in school.
He's actually probably the second cutest at best.
All yours. Thank you.
Hey, you're the new girl, right?
Yeah. I'm Spencer.
'Hey.' AKA the nicest guy ever.
And basically, the next Tobias Bloom.
Total computer genius.
And this is Mikayla. She likes art.
Wait, really, that's all I get?
I'm Daphne. I just moved here from..
...well, all over.
We travel a lot for my mom's work.
She invented Matchmouth. Wait.
What? Your mom invented Matchmouth?
That's so cool. I mean, their use of dog-face filters for actual dogs was revolutionary.
I actually kind of helped her come up with that one.
What? That's my favorite feature.
That's so cool. Isn't she so cool?
You're, you're so cool.
I'm actually glad we ran into you guys.
I was just about to show Daphne the main event.
This is the Bloom Bracket. It's a real-time ranking
'of all the underclassmen at Ridge Valley.'
You're scored on grades, sports, extracurricular.
'Even social media activity's taken into account.'
It's like a GPA on steroids. Mm-hm.
Wow. It sounds pretty intense.
It is, but in a good way.
At the end of each semester, whoever is the top student of the Bloom Bracket gets an internship at Bloom Innovative.
Also known as the coolest place on Earth.
Can you guys imagine getting to work for the Tobias Bloom?
I mean, I've got this perfect idea..
Wait, let me pitch it to you.
Okay. So imagine your phone could make a pie.
Uh, wait, that actually sounds kind of weird.
Slow down there, boy genius.
Spencer here is currently number one.
'I think he's gonna win it all.'
Boy genius? Can we age it up to teen genius?
Hunky-man genius? Right.
Suddenly, I'm thinking baby genius.
Bye, guys. Hey, Velma!
You can ignore her, but you can't ignore me.
You know Velma? Yeah, we're friends.
Velma has friends.
You know, I think I'm actually gonna go catch up with her.
So I'll see you later? Okay.
Bye, Daphne. Bye. Okay, bye.
Velma has friends.
Geez, it is her, right?
'Match not found.'
I can't talk to you right now, Daphne.
So it is you. For a second, I thought I was going crazy.
You know your contact info doesn't come up in the system?
I know. I like it like that.
Well, do you wanna get lunch later?
We could tell everyone about the curse of Crystal Cove.
The blue-green aura was just photosensitive plankton being disrupted by boat propellers.
Well, I still think it was a ghost.
The fire ghost. Boo! Argh!
I can't have lunch with you, Daphne.
Not today, not ever.
Yikes! That's gotta hurt.
Yeah, I hope Velma's okay. No, I mean, that's gotta hurt.
Ooh, cool. That impressively fast editing.
'I mean, she's already in last place, but still..'
Wait, Velma's in last place? 'Yeah.'
But she's so smart. It's impossible.
See you later. Later.
'Roman History completed in record time.'
I actually went to school in Rome for a bit.
Is that a California roll?
I just saw it in the line.
I can't believe you knew all the moons of Saturn.
Mr. Nussbaum was totally blown away.
Yeah, my parents have this coffee-table book of Saturn that I flipped through this morning. Total luck.
You've gotta be my lab partner tomorrow.
You'll totally help me win on the Bloom Bracket.
For sure. Sweet!
See you tomorrow. Alright, Daphne.
I was just on my way to a, um, sports match.
Mm-hm, in the sports classroom.
You mean the gym?
What? Velma, w-what is with all the lies?
This isn't you.
Go home, Daphne. Why are you acting like this?
Did you hear that?
It sounded like a ghost.
Please, statistically, the likelihood that ghost are real is somewhere in the .0002% range.
Okay, fine, but I think we can agree on one thing.
'Activating.' We need to investigate.
No, no, no, no, no. Velma.
For one second, pretend you're the friend I thought you are.
Okay, but just to be clear we are not investigating together, okay?
You're investigating and I'm..
...going to the sports match in the sports classroom.
Looks like someone's possessing this place.
More like the computer clips shorted the circuits again.
Do they do that too?
It's a secret passage.
Dad! What are you doing here?
'I have a question.'
Is, is my leg..
...screaming or is that just in my head?
What are you doin' here?
What are you doin' here?
What does it look like? I'm mopping.
That's what they all say.
Whoo. Wow, that's so funny.
Me running into you at your school. What a coincidence.
Nedley, I think it's time you're honest with our daughter.
Yeah, dad, why were you at my school?
Well, I thought I was supposed to pick you up.
What? I was following you.
There is a reason you think you're so lucky.
I just felt awful about us disrupting your life moving form city to city, switching schools.
That time you were four and I lost you in that casino in Ibiza for 36 hours.
You what? You know what, never mind.
Look, I just.. Ow, ow, ow, ow.
I so wanted your life to be perfect that I, I made sure it is.
Every first day of school, every test, everything..
...I was always there.
Dad, what are you saying?
You're not the luckiest girl in the world, kiddo.
Unless you consider me your lucky charm.
Turn on my pump-up playlist.
Uh-huh, turn up the beat.
Alright, let's do this.
Please tell me that's French toast I smell.
Okay, but that's just at home, right?
And I'm also the tour guide for new students.
'Heads up.' No way.
Legitimate Tulip, they're my favorite band.
Well, what about school in Tokyo?
I was translating everything you said into Japanese.
And your chopsticks were secretly tiny forks.
I designed those.
What about the time I scored a half-court shot at a basketball game with my eyes closed?
That was real... Okay.
...ly me disguised as a mascot.
There were trampolines involved. I'm so sorry, Daphne.
Dad, how could you?
You've literally sheltered me my whole life.
He was just trying to protect you.
I don't need protection, okay?
I can handle myself.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna use my Clothe Me Closet to pick out my outfit for tomorrow. Hmph!
That was you, too, wasn't it?
Four years of Parsons School of Design.
Okay, that's honestly really impressive, but..
Well, I-I-I thought that went great.
I guess I'm just on my own now.
Why can't you just stay out of this, Daphne?
Guessing the violin serenade every morning was my dad.
Flying solo today. No problem.
Pilots fly solo all the time.
Wait. No, they don't.
They, like, always have co-pilots.
It's one of the most basic safety regulations.
You got this.
'She looked so much cooler yesterday.'
'Now she can get rid of those shoes.'
'Heads up, eggplant.'
Oh, sorry. Hey!
Oh, are you okay? Yeah.
Oh, so plum and sage. That's a bold color choice.
Turns out my dad was my Clothe Me Closet.
And you probably don't have one of those.
I don't know what it is.
But I do know, uh, I can help you out.
Uh, okay. Let's see here.
Hold this and we will just do..
Pattern, okay, we're getting there.
Oh, my gosh. And, uh..
Oh, you love aliens.
I love aliens.
Well, it's yours to keep.
Just feel free to incinerate your other outfit.
I will do that. Thank you.
It's just water. Eww.
Well, okay, students, today is the day you've all been waiting for.
We're gonna experiment with CO2.
Find your lab partners.
Hi, thanks for joinin' us today.
Hey, Spence, you still wanna be lab partners?
Are you okay? Hm?
I saw you at the lockers.
You seem kind of... off.
He's fine. I'm good.
But he's my lab partner.
So move along.
You sure, Spence? Yeah, I'm good. Yeah.
Right, you said that. I'm good.
Spence. Hm. Huh?
Hey, what's going on with Spencer?
He just ditched me to work with Griffin.
He's acting really strange.
I think something happened to him after we lost him last night.
Or maybe he doesn't wanna talk to you.
Kind of like how I don't wanna talk to you.
Seriously? Now you're tryin' to fight with me?
There is something wrong with him.
We're the only people who saw him go into that possessed locker last night.
Plus, I have this recording.
Fine. He's acting weird, okay.
What are we supposed to do about it?
Better to stay out of it.
Yeah, I guess you don't care about anyone.
Enough of the chatting, Daphne, Velma.
Are you two gonna be lab partners or not?
Yes, we are. Right.
Let me handle this.
Of course, who cares about teamwork, right?
'Whoa!' 'What just happened?'
What did you just put in here?
It's expanding too fast.
You're sabotaging our project. Prove it.
That's it. This is the worst day ever!
Why are you doing this to me?
You're the one who won't leave me alone!
And what? You can't wear the same headband for more than an hour?
Oh, Carol said it clashed.
And Carol's always right.
Daphne, Velma, enough!
Hm. I'm good.
Ahem. I'm good.
What's wrong with him?
Well, thanks for cleanin' up, girls.
But I gotta tell ya, this isn't how I planned on startin' my Tuesday.
I planned on havin' a fancy yogurt.
That's my me time.
Sorry, Principal Piper. Sorry.
Well, just make yourself comfortable, girls.
Tobias Bloom has said on his blog that this is the best couch for conflict resolution.
...let's make him proud, girls. Make him proud.
Hmm. Oh, sorry, where were we?
You two were fighting in chemistry class.
I'd like to hear you apologize to each other. Both of you, go!
Me? She's the one who sabotaged our project.
She's lying. I don't know what she's talking about.
Oh, just like you forgot that you're supposed to be my best friend?
I'm sorry, Principal Piper.
I thought I could handle high school myself but it turns out I can't.
Here I am in the principal's office.
My science project is ruined and..
Did you know they give out grades lower than an A?
Yes, of-of course, I did. That's pretty standard.
Well, I didn't know that because I've never gotten one.
Pretty soon, they're gonna be telling me that there's no caviar in the cafeteria.
Actually, there isn't and... Just leave it.
Daphne, you had wonderful recommendations from all your prior schools.
I'm sure that you're gonna find your way here.
But you, Velma, I am very disappointed in you.
Sorry, Aunt Piper. You're related?
Oh, yes. I see it.
Before high school, you were such a straight A superstar student.
I knew it.
I don't know what's gotten into you, but it needs to change.
Timothy Bot! Here I am.
Let's engage the conflict couch.
Conflict couch engaged.
It's still in beta-testing, but don't worry, girls.
Since it's the first time for all of us we won't do anything too extreme.
Extreme bout activated.
No, no, wait, I didn't say that.
Extreme bout locked. Stop!
Turn it off. 'Oh!'
You just hang in there and try and work this out.
'I'm gonna fix this.' 'Now ordering 50 tacos.'
Oh, no. no, Timothy Bot. No. Bad! Bad boy.
'Calling my bad boy.'
Where's the real Velma the straight A superstar student?
Just forget what Aunt Piper said. Drop it.
'Conflict.' Drop it.
Why are you acting like this?
It's to protect you, okay? It's for your own good.
Protect me. I can protect myself, thank you.
Can you, really, Daphne? Yes, I can.
Oh, I'm Daphne. I want some caviar from the cafeteria.
Oh, wait. They don't have caviar in the cafeteria.
I'm Velma, I have four heads and I'm dark and brooding and I don't like to talk to people so I have no contact in the system.
Maybe I like it that way. Well, you're on my hair.
You're on my hair. Well, you're spitting at me.
Well, sorry. That was an accident.
Forget what Carol said.
Purple and green go awesome together.
I'm sorry, Daphne. 'Friendship detected.'
I really am your friend.
It's just.. 'Resolved.'
Let me help. We're a team.
Something weird is happening to the top students here.
Like what happened to Spencer?
It happened to another girl. Olivia.
Before you got here, she was a world-class violinist and-and now she can't even play a note.
And it's been happening for a while.
I mean, parents just think it's teens being teens but I don't think so.
I mean, why is it only happening to the top students?
We have to investigate.
We have to help Spencer and Olivia.
Well, that's the thing.
If whoever is behind this finds out two internet sleuths are on their trail then this could get dangerous.
Who cares? We have to take a risk.
Actually, no, I don't. 'Conflict.'
Yeah, you do. 'Conflict.'
Because I'm not budging.
And if you keep disagreeing with me this weird couch is gonna ram us together for all of eternity.
But only because I don't want a concussion.
So you're in?
Yeah. I'm in. 'Complete.'
Velma totally sucks, by the way.
Well, I just ordered 2000 rolls of toilet paper and now I know all the movie show times for Cheyenne, Wyoming but I think he's finally fixed.
Hey, you two made up.
Yeah, we're friends again. Thanks, Aunt P.
You rule. High five.
Posting album bikini photos to Facebook.
Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no.
He's kidding. He's kidding.
He's kidding. Gotta go. Bad Timothy.
So, um, seeing as you're senior advisor and everything we were hoping you could help us out.
Are you sure you should be hanging out with her?
I mean, her below record scores are, like, practically non-existent.
I can hear you.
This is a very small table. Oh.
Sorry. Hi. So about Spencer?
Right. You said he's been acting weird.
So weird. You guys noticed too?
'The dude's like a walking thesaurus.'
Now he has, like, two words in his vocabulary.
Hm. Uh, no, I'm good.
Well, have you checked his Bloomgram?
"So much fun working in the lab after school."
Science guy emoji.
I mean, it's a little nerdy, I guess, but..
...I don't know, it seems normal to me.
It's weird. It sounds like Spencer.
But he's so not acting okay.
And look at his Bloom Bracket score. It's totally dropping.
Competition just gets to some kids, you know?
Well, unless you're one of the Griffiths.
You mean Griffin Griffiths? Yeah.
I mean, his whole family is like crazy talented.
His older brothers and sisters have won the Bloom Bracket competition three years in a row.
We need to talk..
That's your cue to leave. Oh.
We're working on the whole manners thing still.
No, we're not. Yes, we are.
It's fine. I'm gonna get a salad, anyways.
We'll see you guys later. 'Wanted to eat my salad.'
Spencer just sent out a snap.
I mean, he looks happy in the photo, but..
Huh? No. I'm good.
Something weird is definitely going on.
We need to bust into that locker that Spencer walked through to find the secret passage.
Or build enough that we could do something that won't lead to certain danger.
Just an idea. Velma.
Fine. We'll come up with something.
Huh? Mm. Yes.
Sorry, little guy. You were a good robot.
But your time has come.
I really wish I hadn't programmed you with human emotions.
Hey, pumpkin. How's my favorite redhead?
Hi, mom. Working late?
Yeah, things are already crazy.
Tobias Bloom wants me to import all of Matchmouth's tech onto his servers ASAP.
The man never stops. So you finally met him?
Does a video conference call with 12 Norwegian investors count?
I think he might have said nice to meet you or was it pleased to fire you?
You know what? Don't overthink it.
That's great advice. Don't overthink it.
You're so smart. 'Uh, but exciting news.'
You'll get to meet him tomorrow.
He's coming to Ridge Valley High to introduce his latest top-secret project.
Hey, uh, speaking of school how was school?
Well, I got into a fight with Velma, flunked my science project and ended up at the principal's office.
But all in all, I think it went pretty well considering it was my first day actually going to school by myself.
You know, I-I can fire up the Clothe Me Closet in, like, five minutes.
I'm on it. What? No, honey. I'm sorry.
I can't even say it.
She looks terrible. Oh.
'Students, report to Bloom Innovative's'
Welcome to this month's Bloom Innovative beta presentation.
We have to sneak out of here while no one's looking.
Now we all remember the last time where we learned about the Bloom Innovative sound buds.
These brilliant ear pods create a soundtrack that is personalized to you.
Oh, I'm doing the "Running Man"
'cause I'm running to the future.
I can't wait to see what's next.
Without further ado, here he is Tobias Bloom!
Hello! Hello, Ridge Valley High!
So familiar in person.
Probably because his face is plastered all over the school.
'Boy, do I have an exciting' new innovation to beta test with you today.
But first, an important matter of business to attend to.
It's time that we check in on my Bloom Bracket.
I hear there's a new student on top of the rankings.
Should have been Spencer up there.
Huh? Hm. I'm good.
But for now my latest invention.
A 3D printer.
'Lame.' Lame. I know.
We have them in every single classroom.
But what if I told you that this printer..
...was for food.
Bloom Print, I'd like a slice of pizza.
On second thought, Bloom Print print me off enough pizza for the entire school.
He's done it again! He's done it again!
Pizza, pizza, pizza! Pizza, pizza, pizza...
Daphne, no one's looking. Let's go.
What about pizza? Daphne, let's go.
Pizza, pizza, pizza, pizza!
The only person that would come out here during a Bloom presentation is Two-Mop Maggie.
And I've already taken care of her.
Well, like, taken care of?
No, I mean, I spilled some juice a couple hallways over.
Oh. And it's not mean.
Maggie loves spills.
This robot engine is totally stable.
Unless it's overheated.
And this is the stuff they put in heating pads.
But amped up. Way up!
And it's your signature color.
'What? I have an eye for these things.'
I call it..
...a melting engine.
We can come up with something better than that.
Okay, when you destroy your robot child you can name the thing, okay?
Velma, did you see that?
See what? I'm, I'm kind of busy here.
This is my first time violating school property, so..
And here we go.
Oh, it's working. It's really working.
There's no secret passage.
It's just a blue ribbon. Great. Trash.
Recycling. I don't know if this school's super green.
Wait, no. Remember Olivia?
The music prodigy who fell off the face of the Earth?
I mean, she's like Spencer now but she used to always wear a ribbon in her hair.
How many girls do you know who wear ribbons in their hair?
Those girls in the 1940s.
And me. Exactly.
Because ghosts don't exist. Wait, that's...
Okay, Daphne, you're missing the point.
This is Olivia's ribbon.
Which means Olivia went through the secret passage too.
Yes, a clue! Whoa.
Yesterday a fight in class.
"...melting a locker?"
That is not a good trend.
Principal Piper, if you'll just let us explain.
We were trying to help our friend Spencer. He's not...
I, I can't believe it's come to this.
But... I'm gonna have to give you girls..
'Great. Great. Good.'
How do you feel?
Exactly the same.
But shamed. Yeah.
So ashamed. Yeah, good.
Really ashamed. Good, good, good, good.
I really think those stickers will do the trick and some kitchen duty.
'Kitchen duty in shame stickers' guaranteed to stop girls from blowin' things up.
What's up, lunch ladies?
Ooh, I'll take a scoop of the messier one.
How 'bout two scoops for your new Bloom Bracket leader?
You're only on top of the Bloom Bracket because Spencer...
Isn't feeling well.
You mean, because he tanked.
What can I say? I guess being numero uno runs in the family.
And I'm next. Okay.
Are you jealous or something?
You're ranked, like, 200th. Oh.
Tss. Burn. That's not a joke, guys.
Just stating facts.
I was just trying to be supportive.
'Y-yeah, we're good friends.' 'Yeah.'
We're really close. Yeah.
Well, I guess he got what he wanted.
Wait, that's it. What?
Being the lamest group of guys on Earth?
No, think about it.
Who wanted to be on top of the Bloom Bracket more than anybody?
Who has a family legacy to protect?
'Look at him. The so-called second cutest boy in school.'
You really think so?
That is so nice.
Do you wanna go out sometime?
No. Not really.
I'm not looking for anything serious, you know?
It's not you. It's me. Oh.
I'm just gonna.. 'Yeah, yeah, j-just go.'
Okay. Okay. Okay.
He does seem nice.
Okay, let's stay focused. Right.
Griffin. Okay, he has to be behind this.
He has the motive to want something bad to happen to Spencer. We have to stop him.
No, wait, wait, wait. First, we need intel.
We don't have time.
We have to do this fast, low-tech.
Daphne, we have to make a plan otherwise we're just puttin' ourselves in danger.
Live wild, V. We have to go for it.
Hey, look, over there.
Coach Williams, don't do it.
Oh, he didn't. No.
Oh, he's doin' it again. V, not that.
I have a plan.
Oh, shame stickers. Everything okay?
Yeah, um, you said I could come to you if I needed help.
No questions asked. Of course.
'This is too risky.'
Mike and Ryder are super hardcore especially when it comes to defending Griffin.
'Okay, here we go.'
We will reveal their evil plan.
'You know, like, when I think about it'
I don't really care what I do when I grow up.
I just wanna be, like, a really good dad, you know?
Dude, you will be the best dad.
You're a natural nurturer. 'Stop it.'
No. Sometimes, I wish you were... my dad.
That's crazy. Uh, I'm being crazy here.
No, you're not being crazy. Don't do that.
You can always count on me.
This is super uncomfortable.
They're baring their souls, V. It's beautiful.
God, you're so paranoid.
Oh, I forgot my phone in my locker.
I got something really, really important on it.
Oh, yeah, that thing. 'Huh.'
Yeah, that thing.
I'll, uh, catch you guys later.
He's leaving. We're stuck.
This is what happens when we work without a plan.
It's fine. We just have to think on the fly.
You can come up with something, V. I know it. Hit me.
Okay, it's not a great plan, but it will have to work.
Hey, did you ever get the, the landscapes assignment?
Sorry, Aunt Piper. You really do look hilarious.
'You have a fantastic eye.'
'Oh, my God!'
That is embarrassing.
'Keep going. It's working.'
'We're in so much trouble.'
'Okay, you need to guide me. Left or right?'
'Left, Daphne.' 'Those are incredible.'
'Daphne, can you hear me? Left, that's right.'
'T-that's my right, Velma.' 'Get it together.'
'I wonder if this is what it's like to drive.'
'The Robotics Club will be hosting a tech-mixer in the..'
No, he's already at his locker.
What if we're too late?
I have never seen so many cute cats in my entire life.
Oh, I want them.
Is he watching cat videos?
I want you, I want you, I want you and I want you.
That was the really, really important thing?
I'm gonna name you Fluffy-Muffy.
Mm, I like that.
Velma, I think somebody is following us.
What? Not now, Daphne, we're gonna lose Griffin.
Well, there goes that theory.
No. I already sacrificed one robot.
What? Uh, what, girls?
What happened to the shame stickers?
I can't believe the shame stickers didn't work.
'I ordered them specially. You know, they usually work.'
I'm pretty sure if you were wearing them you wouldn't have melted the lockers.
Okay, Aunt Piper, you have to believe us.
Something is up with Griffin. I thought it was Spencer.
It is, uh, was.
Griffin is up to something.
Yeah, we saw him go into a secret passage.
We think he's the reason Spencer seems zombified.
Zombie what? Uh..
Velma, I didn't think you were the type of girl who believes in ghosts and goblins.
I'm not. I believe there is a logical explanation behind this.
Girls, I have no other choice.
I gotta double down.
Say hello to the shame drone.
And you still gotta wear your stickers.
Do you still think Griffin's in on this?
I mean, we saw him go into the locker, same as Spencer.
No, it's gotta be him.
He benefits if Spencer goes down.
His family's won the Bloom Bracket competition.
It all makes sense.
I'm good. Oh, no.
Got it, got it, got it. Watch it, watch it.
You guys, something's goin' on with Griffin.
'Are you seeing this?'
Relax, he's fine.
Yo, Griff. Heads up.
Awesome, dude! That's awesome.
That was sick. Number one, baby.
You are the man, Griff. 'For shame.'
If Griffin's been zombified, then..
'I'm good.' ...who's behind this?
I mean, there's no logical explanation.
What if the answer isn't logical?
The secret passages, kids turned to lifeless zombies.
Maybe it's not a person behind this.
Don't say it. What if it's a..
A spirit, a ghost? You said it.
Look, you don't have to believe me but something's been following us.
I can feel it.
And the one thing we know for sure is that they're clearly going after whoever has the top spot in the Bloom Bracket.
Well, then whoever has the top spot next..
...could be in danger.
I'm good. Hey, wait for me.
It's Mikayla. We need to get Mikayla out of the top spot before anyone hurts her.
But then her replacement will just be in danger.
And then we'll have to save them and then their replacement and then, and their...
Stay with me, V. We can't just put some random kid in danger to save Mikayla.
So what? We just give up?
There's no way I can get to that number one spot but I know you've been holding back.
I'm not doing that.
What do you mean?
I mean, I'll be in danger, Daphne.
I changed my whole identity to stay out of the line of fire and now you're basically volunteering me up as bait?
Well, at least I'm trying to do something instead of being selfish.
By not taking risks. Risks?
You told me your dad has taken care of you your whole life.
At least I am trying to do something about it.
Look, we can do this.
We can do anything.
Things always work out.
Even if they're harder right now.
Okay, but it's not gonna be enough to just push me up.
We're gonna have to push other people down.
Like sabotage them?
It feels wrong.
We're protecting them.
You said I'm the planner and this is the best plan we've got.
Okay, let's do it.
First up, how are we gonna shoot you up that board?
That's the easy part.
Well, better late than never.
Although I can't say that I'm expecting much.
Where's my ribbon? Thanks again, Velma.
'Mikayla Martin's art exhibit'
'on display in the Black Box Theater'
'from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. See you there.'
'Listen up, people, it will be great..
Mikayla's the only one left ahead of me.
V, we can't destroy this.
It's beautiful. We don't have to.
We just have to cut the power to the spotlights.
But we have to be quick, okay? The show opens in a few minutes.
'I'm over here. Follow my voice.'
'It's like super dark in here, Mikayla.'
'Is this part of the art?' Oh, no.
'No, no, no, no.'
Oh, look at the mess. How could this happen?
Someone did this.
I have to sneeze.
You'll give us away.
It's actually pretty funny.
I never have to sneeze.
Well, like, this will be only the first time I sneeze in seven years.
Okay, first of all, do not sneeze.
'Secondly, you really' should be sneezing more in your daily life.
That doesn't seem healthy.
Go, go, go! Wow.
Was that part of your art?
This just got a lot weirder.
Daphne, what was that thing back there?
It was floating.
You're not gonna tell me it was all in my head?
There's a rational explanation?
There is no rational explanation.
It didn't look human.
But I think it's what's behind all of this.
Well, the good news is we're probably in a super creepy ghost tunnel system.
The bad news is obvious.
I think I hear voices.
'We're in the secret passages behind the lockers.'
Okay, these don't come with a regular high school.
Somebody built these. Aliens.
I'm kiddin'. I'm kiddin'. I'm just trying to lighten the whole we're-in-terrible-danger vibe.
'For real, how could a ghost build this?'
It doesn't make any sense.
Velma, we gotta do something. Hurry.
Let me analyze this system. Help me.
It's okay. We're gonna get you out of here.
I can't override the system, Daphne.
We have to hurry. Okay, I'm trying.
Read me the serial number. Uh, "G06592."
'Okay, it's not doing anything.'
Velma, the tube just ate her. The tube ate Mikayla.
Okay, I'm pretty sure it's just a secret elevator or something.
Okay, right, right. Yeah.
'Why are there all these computers' in a hidden room behind the school?
Those are social media feeds.
'So this computer has been updating'
Spencer's social media with all those fake posts.
And all the other zombified kids.
Daphne, there is only one exit.
What if there really is a ghost?
I know I'm usually the one who believes in ghosts but look around.
And why would a ghost need a chair?
Yeah, yeah, you're right. You're right.
A ghost won't have a butt.
I'll smoosh its head with this.
Let's trip it.
Oh, fine. Okay.
Not today, hooded figure!
Daphne, it's me!
Dad? What are you doing?
I thought I was supposed to pick you up today.
Really? You're gonna use that one again?
You said your friend's been taken? B-by who...
Hey, don't change the subject. Why are you following us?
And why are you dressed like a ghost?
I'm not dressed like a ghost, but..
This is a bathrobe. I didn't want you to recognize me.
This is why we thought you were floating.
Yeah, it's for my leg.
'You're Velma, right?' How do you know my name?
Oh, I've been... looking around.
Yeah, about that... I know, I know.
I know you said you could handle yourself, but I couldn't bear the thought of just laying around and not knowing if you were okay.
I'm, I'm sorry.
It's okay. I mean, yeah, you scared us.
But if you hadn't, we never would have found this room.
So, I guess, um being a helicopter parent was a good thing.
No, absolutely not.
And we're gonna talk about that later. Alright?
Hey, what's this?
Oh, now you're giving me the silent treatment?
Dad. What happened?
'Okay, that was so weird.'
It was like you went into a trance or you were sleepwalking or something.
It was like my brain was being overloaded or something.
Wait. It didn't affect you? No.
Those audio files must use a frequency that can only be heard by kids.
Velma, that's super advanced tech.
Somebody built these passages behind the lockers.
That kind of thing would never get by Tobias Bloom.
Bloom Innovative. Bloom Innovative.
And there's a property of Bloom Innovative right on that tube thing...
Okay, don't take this away from us.
Dad. Oh, we gotta call your mom.
'Bloom's been pushing her for all her tech.'
This is all Matchmouth. This is her stuff.
This thing doesn't work down here.
Uh, here, I'll-I'll hack into the school's Wi-Fi.
Here, put in her number. Okay.
Mom. Hey, hey, hon.
Nedley, what are you doing? Mom, are you okay?
Sure, just a bit tired.
Tobias wants this finished tonight.
Hey, no, you gotta get out of there.
Is something wrong?
There is no time to explain, Mrs. Blake.
Uh, I'm Velma, by the way. Nice to meet you.
Mom, there's something going on.
Tobias Bloom isn't who we thought he was.
Oh, hello, Mr. Bloom.
No, no, no, honey, honey. No, mom. Get out of there.
Honey! Honey! No! No!
This is my fault.
Bloom runs this school.
I can't do this.
Yes, you can. No.
I thought I could handle my own life but everything I've ever done has blown up in my face.
My mom is in danger, you're in danger.
Maybe you should just go back to taking care of me, dad.
Oh, no, no, no, kiddo, don't.
Ah, I, I don't wanna go back to that.
Listen, I, I didn't do those things for you because I didn't think you were capable or smart or because I thought you were afraid, I..
I did those things because I was afraid.
'And I am not afraid for you anymore, Daphne.'
I mean, look what you two did. You attacked a ghost.
Daphne, before you got here, I was just solving mysteries behind the safety of a computer screen.
I melted a locker.
I went undercover in the cafeteria.
I ran through the hallways past school hours.
I am stronger than I ever thought I was.
And you showed me that.
We know who we have to take down.
Okay. Let's do this.
What are we doing?
'Maggie, have you seen my keys?'
'What, what? Is that you, mom?'
Bloom Innovative sound buds.
Mr. Blake, can you hear us? Yeah, I'm right here.
Can you hear me? Loud and clear.
Dad, check the surveillance for this place.
'Is there only one security guard?'
Yeah, I see one guard in the foyer.
But there are two heat signatures
'on the 22nd floor.'
Alright. Step one. Let's get this guy in.
'Listen, Daph, I'm so happy'
'that we're having an adventure together, you know.'
'Most dads and their teenage daughters'
'are arguing all the time, you know.'
'You-you-you, just, we're like..'
'I feel like we're buds, you know.'
'Hey, what's that? Is that jelly?'
'How did you get jelly on the..'
'Oh, oh, it's smoking. It's a..'
'Did you just...' Awesome.
'Daphne. Daphne Blake.' Nailed it.
'You stop right now.'
'You're grounded. Do you hear me?'
'Hey, that's a perfect circle. How did you do that?'
We'll use the shame drone to lure the security guard away from his post.
'W-what is that thing on the, on the drone? Is that a rock?'
Why would you..
You didn't lure him away.
'You hit him with that rock!'
'That was assault. That's assault!'
Well, that works.
'In security mode.'
Velma, what's going on? The power must have gone out.
You can't do anything without your dad.
I didn't say that.
We should be safe at home, not on the front lines.
I did, I did not say that.
What if the mass of the Earth is too great that it collapses back onto itself?
No one's gonna help you.
You've never done anything on your own.
This must be some kind of security system.
The room is feeding off our insecurities.
Creating copies that are reflecting our deepest, darkest fears.
We'll never have a female president.
You're gonna lose your glasses and fall right off a cliff.
Stay calm. I-I-I can't.
I mean, what if something pops out at us or-or a trapped door or like wolves or something?
Wolves? Are you insane? How will they even get in here?
Listen to me, we're okay.
All we need to do is overload the system.
How? You said it.
It's preying on our insecurities.
So let's show we don't have any.
I love how you always think a hundred steps ahead.
Your optimism radiates like rainbows.
I love rainbows.
...better than anyone.
You make me believe people are okay.
I do inspire.
We are the writers of our destiny.
Our intellects are our weapons.
And dogs love me.
We did it.
This is supposed to be one of the biggest companies in the world and there's no one here?
Hm. I'm good.
She's acting like Spencer and all the other kids.
'Unplug those wires.' Stop right there.
No offense, but I really wish you would have died in my elevator.
It's you. In the flesh.
Uh, died? It's just an elevator.
Filled with wolves.
I forgot to put in the wolves.
What is this thing?
Well, now that you're locked in here I don't see any problem with giving you some details.
The brainstormer machine.
It sucks the creative energy and personality out of people.
And why? Well, Bloom Innovative must always stay on the cutting edge of technological advancements.
And unfortunately for me ideas are hard to come by.
Luckily, kids seem to have a lot of them.
Olivia was a musical prodigy.
You used her brain energy to make your sound buds.
And Spencer was always going on about using his phone to make food.
You used his brain power to make your 3D food printer.
Both of you are so creatively annoying.
Can't wait to see what kind of ideas the brainstormer sucks out of you.
'Until then good luck with my spiders.'
What do we do, V?
We don't have a plan.
We don't have time for a plan.
You take care of your mom.
I'm goin' in.
Daph, you okay over there?
'I can't, I can't let go of myself.'
'Honey, is that you?'
Dad, keep mom talking and call the police.
'Well, Elizabeth, you'll never believe what's happening...'
It's over Bloom.
And also, I scuffed one of my boots kicking your robots so I need you to get on top of that
'cause my allowance is pretty low.
Do it, V. Yeah.
He's a.. He's a ghost.
No, he's a hologram. Look.
Wait a second.
I knew he looked familiar.
This guy isn't a tech genius.
He's the most famous male model in Japan.
I like that hair.
Wait, if Tobias Bloom's a hologram, then..
What's controllin' him?
I'm not sayin' I won't fight another army of robotic spiders.
I'm just sayin' I'm gonna need a snack if I do it
'cause my blood sugar is getting kind of low.
Help! Help! You guys, you have to help me.
Oh, Bloom, he kidnapped me.
He attacked me and he brought me here...
Wait, wait, wait, how could Bloom kidnap you?
He's a hologram. That's a great question.
A-all I know is-is I-I w-was sucked here by this thing.
Well then, why aren't you zombified?
Well, because I..
Well, well, well.
You two make quite a good team.
A horrible, annoying, terrible team.
You are behind all of this.
Why am I not surprised?
But why the hologram? Why the false identity?
Who's gonna let a teenage girl run a billion dollar company?
The first Azalea phone was my idea.
But I knew no one would take me seriously because of my age.
So you created Tobias Bloom using an obscure model's image and then you started Bloom Innovative as a cover-up.
So you could keep going to school and meet the young new lines that would think up your next inventions.
You lured them in.
You used their phones that played hypnotic frequencies that led them to the passages behind the lockers.
Then you brought them here where you stole their greatest ideas.
But this has been happening for years.
How old are you? Rude.
She's not really a teenager.
You know, when I mentioned Legitimate Tulip to her she had no idea who they were.
And everyone loves that band.
They're okay, I guess.
That's kind of flimsy evidence.
No, she's right.
Wow. You look great for 26.
It's not really that old, but thank you.
I'm not gonna lie just because she's evil.
Okay, why did you do it and how?
How? I moisturize. Keeps the skin young.
Okay, maybe the why is more interesting.
She couldn't handle the pressure..
...to keep coming up with new products and ideas year after year.
She craved the power and the glory to stay on top.
Don't forget about the money and the power.
I just said that.
I'm not really listening to you.
Well, Carol I wish it didn't have to end like this.
You know, it doesn't. You two could just totally let me go.
I was just being polite. It totally has to end like this.
I for sure dreamed it would end like this.
I would have gotten away with it, too if it weren't for you meddling kids.
Eww. The board was evil.
Yeah. It's literally representative how technology in a way has enslaved our minds.
But it is also indicative of the fact that societal peer pressure forces us to be something we're not.
But it was nice to be number one for once.
Hey, dude, you're still number one in our book.
Yeah, we're good friends.
You guys mean that? Yeah, man.
Oh, yeah. Put it here.
D and V, what's good? What's up?
What's up? What's up?
Thank you guys so much for helping us.
How did it happen?
Carol hacked into your Bloom phones and used hypnotic frequencies to lure you into the hallways behind the lockers.
'And then she used a brainstormer machine' to sap all your creative ideas for herself.
I definitely suspected something was up with that Carol.
Too perfect of a record.
And I never liked that pretty boy Tobias Bloom either.
"Oh, I'm handsome." Yuck.
Sure, you didn't, Aunt Piper.
Well, I'm just glad that you're back to your old self again.
Me too. Me three.
'Computer chips.' Computer chips!
I appreciate the gesture but gift card would have been nice.
Oh! Oh! Oh!
I gotta deal with you.
Maybe I could find you on Facebook.
That whole creepy elevator thing and the..
I don't even know how you got out of there.
You're brave. With my bravery from my dad.
Yeah. Um, it's Velma.
Go ahead. Alright.
I'll see you guys later.
Be brave. 'I will.'
Like your pops.
I didn't want you to get too excited before I looked into it.
But last night someone sent me an encrypted file.
'Reckless. I love it, V.'
It looks like someone's been keeping track of tons of mysteries around the world.
Huh, you think they're all connected?
I don't know. Let me show you.
Someone noticed us.
Uh, V, what is happening? 'No, I'm not doing this.'
Well, do something. I am trying.
Don't touch my computer, Daphne.
Stay away or else..
Could be a real monster. Monsters aren't real.
We'll see about that.
