SEASON 04, EPISODE 10: sorry for the poor quality (and watermarks!) of the clip I scrounged up, but it's finally HALLOWEEN! I mean, in-universe, anyway. This episode didn't actually air until December 2021, and I'm reviewing it weeks later in January 2022! During a Halloween festival, a pumpkin is possessed by an unknown spirit who begins handing cursed candy out to children, seemingly entrancing them to do whatever the spirit wants...
...But ultimately, all Jack seems to do with this power is force the children to gather around and cheer while he entertains them with fireworks, magic tricks, and finally pyromania. He sets the whole festival ablaze, making the children dance and rejoice with him as it all burns down. When anybody tries to step in and stop him, he reveals the ability to conjure a scythe blade and put up a pretty intense fight.
Jack's hold over the children deteriorates as he battles, and when the kids start crying, Jack gets surprisingly distraught that they aren't having fun with him, and becomes even more enraged at the various sets of Meddling Kids that have intruded on his good time.
It takes a lot of characters a lot of effort to finally just knock Jack's pumpkin head from his "body," which was nothing but a spectral shadow wearing a stolen Halloween costume and just sort of evaporates.
