This tale brings us to a home where it involves a brother that’s going into his little sister’s room to find something that she’s taken from his room, something she does quite often. While complaining about the poor aesthetic of the room, he ends up crawling under the bed to find what’s under there, which was making something of a noise that drew him there, but he ends up stuck there. Amusingly, he ends up under the bed completely when his sister and her friend come back and just hang out on the bed talking about all sorts of things. Of course, the things they say about him and his stuff starts to upset him but that leads the sister to talking about how the room has been feeling weird lately and that her brother may have put a camera in here. Of course, it takes an expected turn toward the supernatural and it plays out well in ramping up the tension.
While starting as a traditional situation that then leans more toward the supernatural, it’s a lot of fun as we watch how the brother ends up in a really bad way. There’s a lot more humor to this episode than most of what we’ve seen this season and while the ending was expected it was fun to see how it played out in the actual execution, making for a solid ending on top of a lot of girl-talk.
