‘Straight Outta Nowhere’ Ending Explained
Scooby and the gang were invited for dinner at the Mayor Mansion. The Mayor of Nowhere reluctantly welcomed them. And as the gang explored the mansion, they found the strange broadcasting step up in the basement. The machine sent signals to cell phone towers across the country and connected with affluent people. The frequency hypnotized them and compelled them to bring their riches to Courage’s farmhouse.
Velma needed a fluent internet connection to investigate further. Still, a flying Cicada army abducted the gang on their way to the farmhouse. Scooby and Courage took charge and consulted with Courage’s all-knowing computer, who explained that Courage’s farmhouse was in the middle of an impact crater. It was caused by one of the most deadly meteors in the history of the planet. The meteor was composed of dark matter, a notoriously unstable substance that was the root of all the eeriness.
Scooby and Courage located a spot outside the farmhouse and dug to the bottom. They finally found the dark matter meteor and figured out its immense power. In the depths, they also found the gang held hostage by the Cicadas. Scooby and Courage rescued their family and stole the meteor. However, as they reached the surface, queen Cicada attacked them. It harnessed the power of the meteor and transformed itself into a titanous Cicada. Courage used the same power and turned into a giant Courage. In the battle of the titans, Courage finally defeated the Cicada and changed it into its normal size with the help of the meteor.
The mystery gang caught the nasty bug and found out that the evil mastermind, Katz, and international thief Le Quack used the mayor and Cicada costume to commit a supernatural heist. Katz revealed that they harnessed the power of the meteor to hypnotize rich people and steal their wealth. Suddenly, the mayor’s butler, Mr Glockenspiel, and lady cook, Frau Glockenspiel, arrived at the scene and revealed that they were a general and lieutenant in costume. The officials were looking for the dastardly criminals and thanked the mystery-solving teens for stopping the nefarious plan. However, Velma and the gang refused to believe that Katz and Le Quack were real entities until the end. They thought they were humans hiding behind a mask.
