Guess Who's Going To Be Dinner was the fifth episode of Season 1 of The Secret Saturdays. It is the fifth episode overall. It premiered on October 24, 2008.


On the night of Doc and Drew's anniversary, Zak conspires to chase away the boys' Secret Scientist babysitter, only to find that the Saturday HQ is being stalked by the cryptid-devouring baddie Piecemeal.


Zak is playing with Fiskerton before Doc and Drew appear to tell him they decided to go out together on their anniversary. Zak is annoyed as his game was interrupted for this before a camouflaged Komodo tackles him and wins. Zak's parents leave Zak, Fiskerton, Komodo, and Zon to the care of fellow Secret Scientist, Dr. Arthur Beeman. They trick Dr. Beeman into thinking Zon is a UFO. Beeman leaves the house to return to his lab to get the "proper equipment" to monitor the UFO. Zak and his cryptid friends have the run of the Saturdays' house and decide to have some fun.

But, a strange man named Pietro "Piecemeal" Maltese invades the Saturdays HQ, and Zak realizes part of their UFO diversion caused the house's systems to reboot, leaving them with no power to call for help. Piecemeal pursues them throughout the house, intent on making a meal of Fiskerton. Eventually, the house's systems complete their reboot and Zak uses his mother's fire sword to blast Piecemeal through the house's wall and into the water below. At the very end, Piecemeal is seen surviving the fall and crawling out.

  • The title of this episode is a take on the movie "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner."
  • Dr. Arthur Beeman references the original Ben 10 series by saying "sweet Galvan Prime," the home world of the Galvans.
  • It is hinted that Doc and Drew have a bad anniversary when Doc says, "Next anniversary, back to the squid intestines."
  • The Headmaster of the Legion of Garuda is seen briefly while Zak is checking the Interpol Criminal Database for Piecemeal.
  • Zak briefly uses his cryptid powers in this episode. When he was holding his mom's fire sword up as it was being charged up by the solar lighting, you can see Zak's eyes glowing orange. This means he was around another mystic hotspot. Since he was around a lot of cryptid plants it made his power stronger than ever.
  • This is first time that Zak uses the Tibetan Fire Sword.
  • During their previous anniversary, Doc and Drew were somehow trapped inside a squid.
  • More of the Saturday HQ is shown during this episode.
  • We learn that the Saturday HQ has a kitchen, a place for the Saturday Sub, a weapons vault, cryptid plant area, airship landing pad, and a carrier for the airship. The home also expands to a few feet underground.
  • Zak setting traps for Pietro "Piecemeal" Maltese is similar to Home Alone when Kevin McCallister sets up a bunch of booby traps to catch the two bad guys.
  • Doc and Drew don't wear their crime-fighting clothes in this episode.
