Plot Developments[edit | edit source]
- Time travel: Cecil says that time travel is real during Children's Fun Fact Science Corner.
- Russian: while trying to communicate with the ghost of Marcus Vanston's French-speaking cat, Teddy Williams concludes that although he doesn't speak French he has a Russian dictionary and because the two languages are both so dissimilar to English, they have to be similar to each other.
- Cecil's mother: it is revealed that she disappeared when Cecil was fourteen forcing Abby to raise him on her own, that she returned many years later and died a few months after that, and that she was mentally ill as well as addicted to alcohol.
