  • The kids find out what's going on in the basement.

    Beginning with part two of this episode, Casey was attacked by a plant stalk and Margaret helped him out. Casey told Margaret about the conversation in the basement. But when they were close to the window, their father surprised them from behind. He asked them why are they near the basement window, they told him about what happened down there and he said it's none of their concern. He told them to go to their rooms. Later that night, the kids heard a drilling noise downstairs and their dad made locks for the basement door and window. Their dad's going out for a few hours and told the kids to stay in their rooms. Margaret and Casey try to call their mom, but it turns out they can't find the number, so they think it's in their father's room. While their dad returns, Casey gets out of the room, but Margaret was tripped by the answering machine. Dr. Brewer went to his room to check on something while Margaret his hiding under the bed, and he went out again. Casey came in the room and then they discovered worms under their dad's mattress. They both go down the basement and they brought weed killer for protection. They went down and discovered the plants are bigger than before. The two heard a noise from another room in the basement and it turned out to be their dad tied up, but they weren't too sure about that, so they pulled the tape off his mouth and then he'd explained to them that the Dr. Brewer is up there is a plant and Dr. Marek was trapped in another room in the basement and then the plant Dr. Brewer came down and they both demand to spray the weed killer on one of them. But the real Dr. Brewer called Margaret "Princess" and Margaret sprayed the plant Dr. Brewer, killing him. Margaret said there's one person who calls her that and that's her real dad. The next day, Mrs. Brewer came back and their aunt is felling better and Dr. Marek and Dr. Brewer got rid of all the plants from the basement. The family went inside the house while Margaret is tying her shoe, various flowers said to her "I'm your father" and she went inside. To be honest, I think this episode and part one are very great and creepy. Both parts are written very well and they don't disappoint me. Stay out of the Basement is one of my personal favorite Goosebumps episode of all time.moreless
