A fire that burned his laboratory caused Talu to lose his human body in the process. Now bitter and wanting revenge, the Saturdays have to keep Mizuki from killing the crime lord.

In their quest to recover it, they discover that Van Rook and his apprentice Doyle are the cause of the snowstorm, as well as have awakened the beast. Van Rook ends up awakening several more of them by stealing more artifacts from the chamber.

Doc and Drew decide to go out for their anniversary, leaving Zak, Fiskerton, Komodo and Zon to watch the house.

However, a cryptid-eating criminal named Pietro "Piecemeal" Maltese invades the Saturdays HQ. While they are able to fight him off for a while, ignorant of his true intentions, they discover that he plans to eat Fiskerton. Zak is able to save the gorilla-cat by using his mother's Tibetan Fire Sword, but (unbeknown to the family) Piecemeal manages to survive the attack and escape.

They return to save Doc and Drew when they meet Ulraj (a prince whose father was killed by Argost's plan) who is the rightful heir to the city.

When Drew hears that Doc has also been attacked by Munya and Van Rook, she believes that Doyle has tricked her. In the end, Doyle is able to redeem himself by bringing a piece of the Kur Stone, stolen from Argost, to the Saturdays HQ.

|9||The Owlman Feeds at Midnight||November 28, 2008|
The Saturdays travel to Southern Cornwall, England looking for another clue to finding Kur. While there, they end up finding a bizarre cult which worships the Owlman.

The family returns to the Owlman's cave to find the clue they were looking for, using light to defeat the nocturnal creature. However, Doyle overdoes it and causes the Owlman to die in a puff of smoke. The cave later collapses and a map to Kur is revealed, with all the villagers free from the Owlman's control. However, Doc fires Doyle for putting Zak's life in danger before they realize this.
|10||The Swarm At The Edge Of Space||December 5, 2008|
When the Saturdays rescue an aircraft under attack by a swarm of atmospheric jellyfish, they discover that it's Agent Epsilon and his son, Francis, who appeared to do nothing but play a video game. The Jellyfish turn on their airship, injuring Epsilon in the ensuing battle. Zak soon discovers that Francis is the one responsible for provoking the Jellyfish, as his "game" is actually a prototype control device that's driving them crazy. Francis forces Zak into capturing one of the Jellyfish for study, but Zak is able to sneak the control device into the container with it, forcing Francis to abandon both once he discovers the trick.
|11||Eterno||April 17, 2009|
When water supplies in the Middle East are inexplicably transforming into salt, the Secret Scientists send Drew and Zak Saturday into the area to investigate. A young waif named Wadi reveals that she's the cause, having released Eterno, a giant man made of salt who has an unquenchable thirst and a death wish. When Drew and some local villagers refuse to lead him to the Methuselah Tree, Eterno turns them into salt statues in a state of suspended animation. Zak and Wadi venture to the plant to gain the sap Eterno requires to end his suffering. But Wadi steals a flower from the tree, which sends two Centiscarabs after her. Eterno later steals the flower and uses all the sap, which destroys him. The scientists synthesize more sap from the remains and return everything back to normal.
|12||Black Monday||April 10, 2009|
When Zak touches the mystic Smoke Mirror of Tezcatlipoca, it unleashes what Zak christens the Monday family, evil doppelgangers of the Saturdays with their own unique powers. The duplicates attempt to trap the Saturday family in their reality, where they are wanted criminals instead of heroes. However, their own in-fighting causes them to trap themselves instead, destroying the mirror in the process. The Saturdays leave Mesoamerica in their airship, unaware that the evil Zak Monday and Komodo have managed to escape from the fragments.
|13||Cryptid vs. Cryptid||April 24, 2009|
When the Saturdays discover the existence of underground cryptid fights run by Leonidas Van Rook, they suspect that he may be getting help from V.V. Argost. To infiltrate the competition, they re-hire Doyle to be Fiskerton's "manager". After stealing Van Rook's handheld, the Saturdays try to discover what Argost is planning, but stop to help the cryptids escape when Fiskerton is pitted against the Rakshasa and Zak's powers go haywire. With all the creatures safely released into the wild, the family comes to the sudden realization that the grudge matches were a diversion created by Argost, so he could enter Kur's Tomb. Unfortunately, the Saturdays are too late, since he has already retrieved whatever was within (a tablet with the face of Fiskerton).
|14||The Underworld Bride||May 8, 2009|
The Saturday family and King Ulraj travel to New Guinea to investigate the Duah, a pterosaur cryptid that has recently been causing trouble for the locals. The Saturdays discover that the creature was trying to attract a mate and has chosen Zon. Zak tries desperately to separate the couple, in fear he will never see Zon again if she chooses to go with the cryptid. When the family and Ulraj learn of the Duah's plot to take his new bride to the underworld and eat her alive, they try even harder to bring Zon back to the airship. When the island begins to sink, Ulraj tells Zak that his cryptid powers only work if the creature truly wants to do what is asked of it. Zak manages to break Zon out of her crush and send the Duah back to the underworld.
|15||Ghost in the Machine||May 15, 2009|
Doc is visited by the ghost of his deceased mentor, Dr. Lancaster, in the form of an EVP. The family go to Honey Island Swamp to complete what remains of his work: a database cataloging the DNA of every cryptid on Earth. While Doc and Drew finish the project, Zak, Fiskerton and Komodo bump into a number of humanoid cryptids, including the Honey Island Swamp Monster. After repelling the cryptids, Doc and Drew continue their work unaware that they are aiding a group of rouge governmental scientists led by Dr. Lee, who later captures Zak, Komodo, and Fiskerton, as well as fuse them into a cryptid hybrid known as "Zakermodo". When Doc and Drew look for Zak, they run into the scientists who Doc identifies as the colleagues of Dr. Lancaster when they worked with him on a secret Cryptid super-soldier project. The scientists intend to make the Saturdays use their airship as leverage to have the scientists' device taken out of the area, in exchange that they restore Zak, Fiskerton and Komodo back to normal. Just then, the cryptids from before return in force with the resulting attack freeing Zakermodo. Doc and Drew follow Zakermodo through the swamp and managed to subdue it. They then learn that the cryptids are shown to be capable of speech, as well as help the Saturdays force Dr. Lee into returning the boys back to normal. After listening to a recording left by Dr. Lancaster, the family decides to destroy all records of the cryptid super-soldier project, hand Dr. Lee and his colleagues over to the authorities with evidence of their criminal activities, as well as return home.
|16||Something in the Water||May 22, 2009|
The Saturdays find a hidden city called Sanctuary II, after relocating a Groot Slang. A self-sustaining community which causes no environmental damage, the city is soon attacked by two catfish-like cryptids called Lau, which have been plaguing them for some time. Doc offers to help relocate the fish without charge, but the inhabitants instead opt to hire Doyle to capture them. Joined by Zak and Fiskerton, Doyle successfully captures the fish. Back in the city, Doc and Drew discover that Sanctuary II is using a mother Lau as an energy source, hence the constant attempts by her offspring to free her. Doyle, Zak and Fisk return with the captured Lau and Doyle takes his payment without getting involved. The Saturdays are not so quick to leave, resulting in a fight between them and the inhabitants. Doyle returns and helps Zak release all the Lau, who promptly trash the city. Doc asks Doyle if he'll come back but Doyle refuses.
|17||Target: Fiskerton||May 29, 2009|
V.V. Argost and Munya retrieve Leonidas Van Rook from prison, so that he and Piecemeal can kidnap Fiskerton, whom Argost believes to be Kur. They lure the Saturdays to Switzerland with a fake Buratsche-ah-llgs, a lake monster cryptid that appears to be a mass of unformed tissue. During the ensuing battle, Doc puts Fiskerton in charge with protecting Zak, believing that his son is the target. When Zak and Fiskerton are trapped on a runaway train heading for a dead-end, Argost reveals that Fiskerton is the true target and the gorilla-cat should turn himself in for Zak's life, which Fiskerton does reluctantly. Realizing that Argost had tricked him and had no intentions of stopping the runaway train with Zak in it, Fiskerton springs into action. Just as Zak's life is saved, Argost and Munya take off with the collapsed gorilla-cat, leaving a distraught Zak behind. Doc and Drew show up to claim Zak in sheer supposed victory, but they soon ask where's Fiskerton and a tearful Zak replies that he protected him.
|18||Once More the Nightmare Factory||June 5, 2009|
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 the creature. 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.
|19||Curse of the Stolen Tiger||June 12, 2009|
The Saturday family, Doyle and Wadi learn that a rare Maltese Tiger cryptid has been stolen from a small Chinese village by crime lord Shoji Fuzen. While the tiger grants good luck to all those around it, it causes the opposite in Zak's presence. After several failed attempts to convince his family of this, who assume that puberty and a crush on Wadi is the cause of his awkwardness, he finally gets frustrated and uses his powers on the tiger, causing bad luck for everyone in the area. Using this new found information, Zak defeats Fuzen's army, destroying much of the nearby village in the process. Though glad to be rid of Fuzen, they kindly ask that Zak be removed from the area before more damage is caused. At the end of the episode, Wadi tells Zak that she thinks he's cute and Zak stops denying his crush for her.
|20||The Kur Guardian||June 19, 2009|
Zak and Doyle help Fiskerton to uncover the secrets of his Lemurian heritage with the aid of former Secret Scientist Abbey Grey, an expert in ancient civilizations and Zak's babysitter when he was young. They travel to the hidden archives of Alexandria in Egypt, where all information on Lemuria is stored. The knowledge gathered here leads them to Shangri-La, where a telepathic stone reveals that Fiskerton is meant to guard the Earth against Kur's evil. Rani Nagi attacks the group to eliminate Fiskerton, but is repelled by the stone. With the truth about his people uncovered, Fiskerton decides that it's time to tell Doc and Drew.
|21||Food of the Giants||June 26, 2009|
The Saturday family and Abbey go to the Allegheny Mountains to help with the cryptid Allegewi, which has been causing trouble at a logging camp. During their search for the creature, it is revealed that Abbey is Van Rook's new apprentice. She intends to leave the family trapped so that the cryptid can eat them, but is caught off-guard and stuck with the family. The Allegewi releases them all, so it can hunt them as proper prey. This allows the group to turn things around on the beast and find the missing loggers. In the end, Abbey risks her own life to save Zak and Doyle, but promises that she will return to finish the job she was hired to do.
|22||The Atlas Pin||July 3, 2009|
When V.V. Argost steals Rani Nagi's Kur-detecting relic, she threatens to pull the Atlas Pin — a giant rock which holds the tectonic plates together — unless the Saturdays recover the relic for her. The Saturdays decide split into two groups: Doyle, Zon, Doc, and Fiskerton will search for Argost. Meanwhile, Zak, Drew, and Komodo search for Rani Nagi around Kumari Kandam. Drew's group is forced to fight the Kumari Serpent, now under Rani Nagi's control. They manage to subdue the serpent and find her with her bodyguards, who pull the Atlas Pin in retaliation. Ulraj comes to their aide and is able to prevent disaster with the help of the serpent. At the same time, Doc's group battles Argost for the relic, successfully retrieving it after prolonged dogfight. Fiskerton destroys the relic, deciding to use his instincts to find Kur, but Doyle covertly recovers the pieces.

When Fiskerton is apparently responsible for several attacks on Secret Scientists, Zak and the family cryptids go on a quest to clear his names. They are led to the Louvre Museum by Zak and Komodo Monday, who need Zak to retrieve their airship from their universe, now accessible through the repaired smoke mirror. With it, they plan to cause havoc on a global scale. Zak steals the airship as asked, but drains the power cell before returning it. When Zak and Komodo Monday attempt to take off, without a source of re-fueling, it falls out of the sky and back into the mirror, trapping Zak and Komodo Monday in it again.

Doyle takes Zak to an abandoned tourist resort in Canada for a training mission about deception, but they soon discover that the town is abandoned for good reason when the nearby lake, the Hînqûmemen, comes to life and attacks them. Doyle decides to distract the lake while Zak gets help, assuring him that he has a reserve oxygen tank with plenty of air. Zak quickly realizes that Doyle was exaggerating about his oxygen supply in order to keep him safe and returns to rescue Doyle with a wheelbarrow full of quick-dry cement, which turns parts of the lake into stone. Zak and Doyle make their escape, then arrange for cement to be dropped in the lake by helicopter. When they return home, Doc reveals that the water was infested with tiny cryptid parasites.
|25||Shadows of Lemuria||July 25, 2009|
The Saturday family call on the para-neurologist Dr. David Bara to find the motivation behind Fiskerton's strange instinctual behavior, while V.V.

When Argost's parasite attaches to Fiskerton, Fisk's subconscious attempts to fight. Taking control of Bara's equipment, Fiskerton telekinetically builds several robots which destroy the Saturday HQ, using the wreckage to build a large divining rod. Once Zak removes the parasite, Fiskerton reveals that the identity of Kur will be revealed in Antarctica. As the Saturdays depart to find Kur, Argost, having been watching through his neural parasite, sets off for the same destination.
|26||Kur Rising||August 1, 2009|
Upon arriving in Antarctica, V.V. Argost releases Kur from beneath the ice. The Saturdays battle against Kur, giving Argost the opportunity to sneak inside its body and control it from within. Zak and Fiskerton follow Argost inside, pitting his powers against Kur's might. After a long struggle, Zak manages to overcome Kur, knocking it unconscious. The cryptids formerly under Argost's control turn on him, forcing Munya to carry him out to safety. Outside of Kur, Doyle uses the Kur-sensing relic to solidify the point that they are near Kur. However, once Zak is expelled from Kur's body, the glow begins to fade. Doyle approaches Zak and the artifact glows strongly once more—revealing that Zak is Kur.
