The Dreamweaver was a monster created by then Crypt-Master Bronson Stone! Using their skills, Mystery Inc. cracks the mystery and realizes it's an inside job. One of Stone's old C&C-mates is actually the Dreamweaver – out for revenge because his beloved level 99 Elf Mage was destroyed all those years ago! As a surprise at the end, Fred's real parents (Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves) return and introduce themselves to Fred and the gang!
