The Shasarak burst into a dance routine and the Doctor manages to escape. Meanwhile the Muse explains to Amy and Rajiv she is an android who was used as an amusement for the Maharani, but when the Shasarak figured out her powers could be used for evil, they hunted her down. She explains that she was injured from the crash landing. Just as she finishes, the Doctor turns up and begins inspecting the Muse. He comes to the conclusion that she could recharge from a nearby power source, so he goes out into the town and a dance routine starts.

- It is reasonable to assume that the comic has been written to invite the potential of a musical episode of Doctor Who, in the tradition of Buffy, Xena and Scrubs' musical episodes.
