    Okay, first things first, my friends. I admit that many of you did not like this episode for many reasons, but I'm here to tell you that this episode is probably the best one yet.



    First we saw Thorn, Dusk and Luna making a comeback in this episode, proving that we fans really support the Hex Girls, and that they should appear more. Revised songs, and a new one, sang by Daphne who adopts temporarily the idntity of Crush, the fourth Hex Girl. Plus, finally Fred admits that he has feelings for Daphne (about time too), and well, we had a villain which was a little difficult to guess who he was under the mask.



    I really do hope that the Hex Girls appear more in this series, because I love them, and wll, who knows, thy might even help the gang solving the mystery behind Crystal Cove, and more importantly, find out who Mr. E really is.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • The Phantom: Listen, Hex Girls, carefully. You are bound for misery! This will be your final show. Or you will suffer endless woe! So saith the Phantom.

    • Fred: Daphne! Now I need to talk to her!
      Daphne: Daphne's gone, call me Crush.
      Fred: Darn it, lady, I'm serious! Where is she?
      Daphne: Fred, it's me, okay?

    • (The Hex Girls play a song called "Trap of Love")
      Daphne singing as Crush: Your unfeeling heart imprisons me,
      careless eyes too blind to see,
      Empty words an iron cage
      broken heart bleeding rage,
      Can't wait for you and me
      it's time I break free,
      Trap of love snared by desire
      trap of love burned by your fire,
      Trap of love snared by desire
      trap of love beware the trap of love,
      Velma: (talking to Fred backstage) What do you think of the new song?
      (Fred doesn't say a word as he looks at Daphne)
      Daphne singing as Crush: Let me be it's time we part
      set me free uncaged my heart,
      Can't wait for you and me
      it's time for you to see,
      Trap of love snared by desire
      trap of love burned by your fire,
      Trap of love snared by desire
      trap of love beware the trap of love.
      (crowd cheers and the song ends)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Phantom of the Paradise

      The episode's title is an homage to the 1974 musical film Phantom of the Paradise, whose story is a loosely adapted mixture of The Phantom of the Opera, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Faust, having brief references to Frankenstein and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

    • The Hex Girls manager is obviously inspired in one of the main characters of the 1970 movie Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

    • "...class 4 noncorporeal phantom..."

      Possibly a reference to the spirit classifications on The Real Ghostbusters. Curiously Frank Welker, the voice of Ray Stantz as well as Fred and Scooby, wasn't the one to deliver this line.

    • The way Fantzee Pantz was dancing was similar to Michael Jackson's Moonwalk.

    • The video web site Shaggy and Scooby were watching Fantzee Pantz's video on was called Ear Tube, which is an obvious parody of YouTube.
