Zedd comes back
to her. “They’ve obviously failed to capture the Zeo crystal. We don’t have time to wait for them, they’ll

Tommy sets it down and immediately a white light shoots from it, enveloping

“Very funny,” he says, turning around. “Has it occurred

Zedd is correct,” says Finster, coming to them. “Serpenterra has a limited energy supply, we must plot our course

He grabs his head. “Oh, I’ve got such a skull-ache! I wanna go home!” He leans on Goldar’s shoulder.
Two humans approach
the garbage cans a few feet away and put some bags in. “Easy now,” Goldar says. “Let’s just ask these

They both turn and shout over to the two, and both humans scream and run away. “Why do you suppose they did that?”

Skull leads him

Getting none, Skull takes of Bulk’s hat and blindfold and sweeps an arm out. “Tada!”

Tommy asks. They start walking again, looking around. They stop when they see a metal door open to reveal a green swirling
vortex. They are hesitant, but walk up to it, and Tommy reaches out a tentative hand.
Billy says. “Be careful.”
