Kur Rising was the twenty-sixth episode and the season finale of season one of The Secret Saturdays. It is the twenty-sixth episode overall. It premiered on August 1, 2009.



The episode opens with a symbol that appears to either be a backwards letter c with a line connecting to a circle or a question mark on the Kur Stone. The Saturdays are in Antarctica looking for Kur in a caldera when they see a horrible-looking creature has been trapped in suspended animation under the ice. Everyone thinks it is Kur.

Suddenly Argost arrives and frees it. It looks smaller than expected, having the appearance of a giant worm. Zak attempts to use his powers but can't get a connection. Doyle arrives in his MiG fighter with the Kur detecting device glowing brightly. All of a sudden another giant worm-like creature breaks through the ice and destroys Doyle's jet. Everyone soon realizes that they've greatly underestimated the cryptid's size. In reality it is a behemoth with 7 heads. The Saturdays attack, pulling out all the stops to bring the creature down. Zak again tries his powers but a power surge sends him flying and the cryptid concentrates its attack on Zak and releases cryptids from its mouth. The Saturdays retreat and all fall into a small cavern.

Zak says Argost is controlling Kur from the inside and he must go in. His parents let him go without protest and even give him their weapons. Fiskerton decides to join Zak and they venture into "Kur," finding Argost using Devonian Annelids to connect himself to the cryptid's nervous system to control it. He makes the creature release Shedu, which latches onto Kur's back, extend their fins and flap then, giving "Kur" the ability to fly.

Meanwhile, Zak is fighting Argost and Fisk is pinned against a wall by Munya. Zak manages to use his powers to defeat "Kur." The cryptids formerly under Argost's control turn on him, forcing Munya to carry him out to safety. Doyle explains that the Kur detector glows in varying degrees of brightness depending on proximity to Kur. He then puts it next to "Kur" and it glows very bright, but when Zak and Fisk are ejected from "Kur," the device stops glowing so brightly near "Kur" and starts glowing brightly again toward Zak. Zak's eyes also start to glow orange as if they're responding to the device. The symbol that appears on the Kur Stone appears in Zak's eyes. Everyone's in shock, as it is now evident that Zak is the true Kur.
