Sally evacuates the garden when it's found the barrels contain a toxic cleaning chemical called technocloroethelyne, or "perc", someone illegally dumped rather than dispose of properly. Ghostwriter manages to reveal a bit more writing on another barrel first. After many failed phone calls, the team contact the Environmental Protection Department, but they won't be able to remove the barrels for several months since they need to make sure no other site is worse first. The alternative is to catch the dumper since that person must by law remove them, but they need to learn who it is. Gaby worries her life is in danger since the rabbits' ended, so Alex tries to find out the chemical's effects. This time, Tina is missing out on the investigation after her brother Tuan gets into an argument with their parents about skipping school to focus on his music, and Tina (and her sister) are confined to home too since her parents say she's been helping them too little. The Ghostwriter Team decide to approach local activist Fanny Mae Banner, who hosts a show exposing crooked actions - but they first must prove the perc case is an actual scandal. Lenni's dad and Sally seem to be falling in love. Gaby finds the warning sign put up to keep people out of the garden is ineffective since kids don't get it. The team learn the barrels came from Eco-Safe Chemical Co., but the company says the buyer must've dumped it. Thanks to Ghostwriter's letters, they're able to trace it to French Garment Cleaners. Momo works there, but when Rob and Lenni approach him he seems nervous and is reluctant to say if he knows who the hauler responsible for taking and dealing with their perc is. Written By  Less
