To rescue Fiskerton, the Saturday family invades Weird World and is joined by Doyle. A snake woman, the Queen of Nagas, reveals to V.V. Argost that Fiskerton isn’t the cryptid Kur as he expected, but a Lemurian, which can lead him to Kur. Doyle overhears this conversation, and enters the room to rescue Fiskerton shortly after the revelation. Meanwhile, after the family goes though many trials, Drew is able to photograph the final piece of the Kur Stone. In the end, the family escapes safely with Fiskerton. Doc asks Doyle to train Zak, recognizing that Doyle possesses unique skills that neither he nor Drew could teach. Doyle agrees to this, but he and Fiskerton keep quiet about the information that they have learned.
