When Michelle leaves, weird things happen to the room. Louie scares Taylor by teleporting to the room but however, Frankie wasn't scared.

This amuses Frankie and Louie goes back to the attic upset that he didn't scare Frankie. Miles and Ray are in the attic preparing to scare the Hathaway Family out.

Back in the living room, Taylor brings Michelle in expecting to show the ghost boy, Louie. Michelle comforts Taylor and Frankie and they get ready to sleep.

The next day, Lilly, a gymnast at Kirschener High School, watches Taylor do gymnastics and Lilly wanted Taylor on the gymnastics team. She happily accepts and Lilly told Taylor that other gymnasts are going to come to visit her later.
