Jack and Parker are in big trouble when their parents are called into the school for a particularly unpleasant parent-teacher conference. They only missed ONE assignment and that’s because they were busy saving Newbury. And now their secret life as ghost hunters are at risk of being exposed…


Parker's parents, Bob and Linda, are walking to Newbury High School with Parker and Jack in tow since Mr. Clarke called their respective parents for a parent-teacher conference after Jack and Parker missed an assignment (due to them being busy ghost hunting) while Headmistress Rose Davids waits for them at the school's entrance. Jack and Parker rant about being in trouble for trying to save Newbury; Jack wishes they could tell their parents the truth but Parker disagrees as she doesn't think their families would handle that. When everybody is inside Rose takes Jack aside and gently asks him what is going on since she is not only his principal but also his mother but Jack reluctantly brushes her off.

At Mr. Clarke's classroom, Rose tries to apologize for their children's behavior while Parker's parents are busy talking on their phones. However, Mr. Clarke says he doesn't accept her apology, before turning around and revealing that he has been gloomed before throwing gloom at the parents. Suddenly, Mamali appears out of Mr. Clarke's mouth and she tells the Hunters that she plans to take their parents to the Hidden Side in order to exploit their true identity. However, when she attempts to teleport, Mr. Clarke hits the celling.

The Gloombies begin attacking Parker and Jack, forcing them to flee the room. As they are running away, Mamali uses her long arms to steal Jack's phone, which gives the Gloombies a chance to attack Jack. Meanwhile, Parker is able to sneak up on Mamali and shoots her. However, Mamali grabs Parker's phone and then Parker herself before taunting her about her gloomed parents wanting to eat her. Facing a tough situation, Parker presses the delayed Blaster and when Mamali grabs her phone, she thinks she is taking a selfie but is shot. This causes her to touch Jack's capturing mechanism and just like the rest of her fellow Boss Ghosts, she too is captured.

The job is still not done yet, as Jack is still being chased by Gloombies. Parker throws Jack his phone and they are able to free their parents from their possession. When the parents ask what happened, Parker and Jack lie by saying that they received evening detention, which would last for a while so that they can have more time to hunt ghosts. The parents agree with the punishment before Parker's parents go back to their phones and Rose urges everyone to leave and get some dinner. Jack and Parker high five before following their families outside while Mr. Clarke throws up gloom over the railing although nobody notices.
