The Ghost of the Willow Princess appears. She and the zombie turn towards Scooby, Shaggy, and Velma and they unmask themselves.

The zombie is Fred and the Willow Princess is Daphne. They did it to save the willow. Willow pays the gang all the money they need. The gang heads back to Rockel Town. Soon, Howard's store is rebuilt and the gang isn't in jail. Scooby looks into the sky.
