[[Ma Gorg|Ma]] and [[Pa Gorg]] leave [[Junior Gorg|Junior]] alone in [[The Gorgs' Castle|the castle]] overnight for the first time; he has to protect the crown jewel. [[Gobo Fraggle|Gobo]] thinks that all the [[Gorgs]] have left, so he plans to map the castle, with a frightened [[Wembley Fraggle|Wembley]] tagging along. The other Fraggles pull a prank to scare Gobo and Wembley by making ghostly sounds, after which they too enter the castle. After a series of incidents in which the Fraggles and Junior unwittingly scare each other, they all become aware of each other's presence in the castle. However, Gobo soon spots a mysterious moving shadow outside, and the frightened characters set a trap. They end up catching Pa Gorg, who has returned in the night to help Junior fulfill the Gorgish rites of passage.
