They throw a "Mystery Shack is Back" party, but some unwelcome guests crash it. In the second episode, "Into the Bunker," premiering exclusively on Disney XD, Dipper's secret journal pages lead him and the gang to the author's hidden bunker where they find themselves face-to-face with a mysterious figure from Gravity Falls' lore.
