Meanwhile, Jo is found by an invisible local named Wester who treats her wound and explains that she is on the planet Spiridon and that his people were invaded by the Daleks who released deadly bacteria which killed off most of the population and the remains of his people are trying to fight back against the Daleks, who landed on Spiridon hoping to find out the secret of the Spiridon’s invisibility and reproduce it for their own evil use. He informs Jo that the Doctor and Codal have been captured and taken to the Dalek base. Jo is determined to try to free them.

His suspicions are later proved correct when Jo and The Doctor discover that the hazardous toxic waste is having an alarming effect on the insects which are living underground as larvae.
