"The Reptile Room: Part Two" is the fourth episode of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events. It covered the second half of The Reptile Room.

Official synopsis

Klaus and Violet suspect Count Olaf and his evil cohorts when a lifeless body turns up in the reptile room. Sunny sees the inside of a suitcase.


The Baudelaires wake up the next morning only to find that Monty has been killed and left in the Reptile Room for them to find. They immediately suspect Stephano. Before they can do anything about it, Stephano kidnaps Sunny and promises to hurt her if Violet and Klaus don't go with him to Peru.

Unexpectedly, Mr. Poe appears but doesn't seem to recognize Stephano for who he really is. Stephano explains that Monty was killed the the Incredibly Deadly Viper and that he must become their new guardian. Mr. Poe refuses to listen to Klaus when he says that Stephano is lying so the Baudelaires take matters into their own hands.

Sunny with the Incredibly Deadly Viper.

Klaus sneaks into the Reptile Room in search of one of Monty's journal, convinced that there must be notes about the viper in it. Meanwhile, Violet and Sunny go to Monty's care and break into Stephano's suitcase. There they find a bunch of parts that, when assembled, become the murder weapon. While Violet is distracted, Sunny manages to wander off and heads back to the house with the Incredibly Deadly Viper.

The two give Mr. Poe a scare but, when he realizes that they are just playing, he comes to the conclusion that the viper couldn't have killed Monty. This is further cemented when Klaus reads Monty's notes clearly stating that the viper isn't an aggressive reptile and when Violet puts the murder weapon back together. Stephano is revealed to be Olaf but, just when Poe was about to arrest him, Olaf manages to get away yet again.


The Baudelaires follow Olaf into the garden maze, but run into Jacquelyn instead. Disguised as a statue, she reveals that she was a friend of their parents and promises to do everything she can to find Count Olaf. The children are taken away by Mr. Poe yet again and are shipped off to their Aunt Josephine, who Jacquelyn said is a "fierce and formidable woman." Jacquelyn then attempts to capture Count Olaf aboard the Prospero, threatening him with a harpoon gun, but he evades capture.

Deviations from the novel

  • In the book, Olaf threatens the children with his knife, in the TV series he hides Sunny in one of the suitcases and threatens to hurt her.
  • In the book, the hook handed man comes as Doctor Lucafont. In the TV series, all of them come, with the Indeterminate gender person being Nurse Lucafont instead.
  • In the book, Dr. Lucafont calls out the Mamba du Mal as the killer snake when he find the venom. In the TV series, Olaf claims the Incredibly Deadly Viper did it, just like the film.
  • In the TV series, Count Olaf escapes into the labyrinth while the others leave by van. In the book, he and the Hook-Handed Man just drive away.
