That So Raven
It's Nerfing Time

Halloween Special 2013 is the twenty-first episode in the second season of StarCrafts. It is forty-sixth episode overall and a sequel of Halloween Special 2012.

Plot Edit

On previous episode, two out of three terran units, orange marine and ghost, entered the infested academy when red marine was abducted inside. As the ghost turned his flashlight on, he saw a hydralisk jumpscaring them.

However, the ghost simply headshots the hydralisk, using snipe ability. Out of relief, the front door is banging open and the infested terran appeared, screaming. The marine shots him off the entrance. He focuses the rifle outside the building. When the infested terran appears and screeches suddenly, he guns him down and slams the door.

Two more infested terrans appear on both windows, one screaming and being hammered by ghost's rifle, and another jumping inside until the ghost shoots him. Marine boards up the door while the ghost snipes and fires at incoming swarm of infested terrans. He shoots the vending machine, rolling it towards the window to block off the monsters, followed by a couch at the other window.

After realizing it is over, both survivors hear the loud knock on the double door to the next room, which is illuminated. The masked zealot steps into the picture, hollering with his buzzing chainsaw. Both marine and ghost are dead-scared.

Epilogue Edit

A faced pumpkin with legs rolls to the right, as a baneling.

Trivia Edit

  • This episode is uploaded at two days before Halloween.
  • There are three tombstones with inscribed texts:

Cultural references Edit
