Headscratchers: Are You Afraid of the Dark?
  • How did the members of the Midnight Society meet? In the first episode, they mention that they go to different schools and have different friends, and that they frankly have no connections to each other outside of the Midnight Society. Aside from the brothers Gary and Tucker, how did they meet to form the Society in the first place?
    • I always assumed it was kind of a chain reaction, since each new member has to be nominated by a current member, they must know the person who nominates them. So everyone else is (mostly) new to them at their first meeting.
    • As is mentioned below the Midnight Society is some kind of Legacy group, it's even implied that some of the current children's parents were former members. Presumably that combined with current members inviting new members means there is always a Midnight Society. They probably have chapters all over the state/country.

  • It has always bugged me that these kids are out at night in the dark alone. Where are their parents?!
    • Either the kids lied and said they were having "Sleep-overs" at another friend's house, or there's always the chance that the woods weren't as scary and isolated as they looked. They could have been in a wooded area about 100 yards away from their houses.
    • Or they don't meet that late. It can be dark and be 8:30 in some places.
      • In winter where this troper lives, it can be dark at 6 freaking pm.
    • Why would the "Midnight" Society meet at 8:30?
    • Because the "8:30 Society" just doesn't have that same ring.
    • If "Silver Sight" is to be believed, then their parents (or at least Gary & Tucker's parents) probably know exactly where they are and what they're doing, because they used to do it too. Besides, they meet at midnight on a Saturday, goof around a bit, listen to a 20-minute story, goof around a little more, and go home.

  • In the video game: Mary laid a curse on the theater that magic would never again work onstage, and that she'd become the star of the theater. Did she not realize that she just cursed herself to perpetual failure?
