The Rundown: Ami fights to buy time for her friends to find the final ghost.
A battle lasting days has the world glued to its screens and on edge as the Haunted House goes up against the haunted robot. Ami purposely drags out the fight in order to give her friends time to track down and contain the final ghost the house needs. Rip and the others find themselves in a small town that has been abandoned, but the stench of death is everywhere and the house tells them that the ghost they’re looking for is close. Unfortunately, they’ll have to stop the town guard to get to it.
In the tunnels beneath the town, Buzz and Rip catch up but end up separated in a maze. Buzz finds himself confronting the ghost leading them and discovers the truth about what happened to both the town and the part of the house that is trapped there. At the same time, Rip is confronted by a familiar face who is on a mission to stop the guard and release the last ghost trapped in her own grief.
