The intergalactic adventures begin with the third season premiere episode when Bender's uncle, The Archduke of Thermstadt, dies. He leaves his gothic castle to Bender... on one condition -- Bender must spend a full night there. In a homage to classic horror movies, Bender becomes cursed and transforms every night, threatening the entire Planet Express gang.

LOOK HARD: For cheap foreshadowing, when Leela welds Bender to the wall of his apartment, all the pictures on the walls are pictures of cars.
The numbers that drench in blood on the wall have actual meaning. 0101100101 is jiberish, it just stands for the number 357. But 1010011010 actually stands for 666, the sign of the beast.
