To quote the Spice Girls, "Come a little bit closer baby, get it on, get it on. 'Cause tonight is the night when two become one." That's right, he went to her. And Jack and Tanner went to one another this week to discuss "Mary Anne and the Great Romance." Tons going on in Stoneybrook this week including twins continuing to be terrible, something used, something borrowed, something blue, and the wedding we've been waiting 25 books for.

Listen to two ghostly voices, trapped in amber, echoing out from the murky abyss that is the Baby-Sitters Club Club podcast. This week Mallory finds a diary, talks to a ghost, and teaches a young boy to read. Also this week, Jack and Tanner become U.S. citizens, burn their faces off, and confront Princeton’s own Ann M. Martin about her whereabouts on the evening of June 10, 1958.

Guess who's back (Stacey's back). And there's not a whole lot we can do about it. Did Mimi have to die to make this happen? Does this mean that our beloved Mr. Spier is going to fall under the siren spell of Stacey's mom? Is it nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous Stoneybrook? Or is the best course of action to take arms against Mr. McGill, and by opposing, end him? Also, what the heck happened to those French Witch hunters? This episode is dedicated to the memory of our bravest little explorer, Jackie Rodowsky, (17 March 1880 – 17 March 1912).

Think of Stoneybrook (if you don't already) as a lovely, welcoming bird's nest. Now imagine that a wicked cuckoo has passed its boundaries and laid a great big vile, impostor cuckoo's egg right inside that sacred nest. That's literally (LITERALLY) what happens this week when an entity called JOHN (aka The Superbrat) hatches inside our beautiful home and sets about destroying dear Jessi's life. Of course, if we'd only paid attention we would have known, because, as is ever the case in the Baby-Sitters Cycle, it was foretold.
