Matilda listens and asks questions. She is told that Miss Honey was supposed to get her father's belongings when he passed but instead her aunt took them. Matilda is shocked to then find out that Miss Honey's aunt is the Trunchbull.
Miss Honey asks Matilda if she wants to practice her powers, but Matilda says she has to go home. On the way back, Matilda asks Miss Honey what her first name is, what her aunt called her father, and what her father called her aunt. Miss Honey answers not knowing what Matilda wants this information for.
When Matilda gets home she practices her powers on her father's cigar that she stole. After lots of practice, Matilda decides she is ready for her plan. She can now move objects all about in swirls and loops.
AGATHA TRUNCHBULL. IT'S ME, MAGNUS. LET MY BUMBLEBEE GO. IF YOU DO NOT, I WILL GET YOU. I WILL GET YOU LIKE YOU GOT ME
At school, Miss Honey warns the children about another visit from the Trunchbull. She tells them to mind their behavior and reminds them of last time.
The Trunchbull asks a boy in the class difficult, useless math problems and when he doesn't know the answer, the Trunchbull hangs him upside down by his leg.
The kid while he is upside down yells that the chalk is moving by itself. After seeing what "Magnus" wrote on the board, the Trunchbull faints. The boy then dumps water on her while other students go find help.
