Henrietta Fenner is a local artist who mistakes the travellers for chaps from the newspapers reporting the find. A rumble from the ground sends the crowds of watchers running. The cliff cracks open and a Demigod breaks free and marches off. However, while one half of its body is encased in its protective suit, the other is left open, weak and exposed. Rampaging towards the nearest village, it leaves a trail of devastation, with trees being uprooted along the way.
Realising that the creature is probably hunting for the rest of its casing, the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to search for the signs of the same material as the creature. The Doctor calls over the Demigod. It cracks the ground open to reach down and retrieve an almost matching creature wearing the missing bits of the first creature's casing. As the two creatures merge into one, the Doctor wonders what it may try next. He is reassured when all it wants is to go home which it does – blasting itself back into space!

- A lot is unclear about the nature of the demigod – compounded by the frame showing not just the missing half of its exo-skeleton but of a twin creature wearing the missing parts.
