Life in the Underground was the eighth episode of Season 2 of The Secret Saturdays. It is the thirty-fourth episode overall. It premiered on January 16th, 2010.



Zak's birthday party is filled with surprises, including a visit from Ulraj and Wadi. The Saturdays find out a town is being attacked by cryptids. When the Saturdays come to investigate, they are attacked. Zak's crush for Wadi and hers for him are made more open in this episode. Zak later encounters Argost in a clock tower, who hints at Kur's ability to control an entire army of cryptids from long distances. Zak, Wadi and Ulraj pursue the cryptids underground. Eventually, they fall into a pit that starts to fill with dirt. As they were being buried alive, Zak remembered Argost's words and managed to summon one of the cryptids to save them. The three soon learn that the cryptids were actually making a survival colony to save themselves from Kur. Realizing this, Zak assures the cryptids that he has no intention to harm them or anyone and ultimately earns their trust. Zak returns to the clock tower to thank Argost, who then gives Zak a neural parasite to contact him with should the need arise, despite Fisk's objections.
