Lightning Strike Burns Brain
Oh no! The evil brain has succesfully taken over all the people in the house, and their attempt to cut the power to it manually has failed. Nothing can save them now!

Except perhaps a lightning strike which surges enough power through the equipment that Donovan's Brain actually catches fire and burns....
