Sarah and Luke take the pilot to the attic of 13 Bannerman Road. However, he Krulius soon appears at the attic and wants to attack Sarah. When the pilot tries to help Sarah, the Krulius uses his toxic breath to hurt the pilot. Then he teleports the pilot, Sarah and himself to the Doloth Star Base, where he wants to kill them. After this he wants to destroy Earth. However, Sarah used her sonic lipstick to send a signal to Mr Smith before she was teleported away. Mr Smith informs the Judoon about the location of the Krulius. It takes only a short time until the Judoon arrive on the Doloth Star Base. They take the Krulius with them and bring Sarah Jane back to Earth.
