Previous episode: "The Pilot"
Next episode: "The Forest Through the Trees" (coming soon)
Harry Dirt is walking through the forest when he encounters Scagly weeding. Scagly turns out to have two personalities, one of whom scares Dirt a little. As he tries to extradite himself from the conversation, Grezelda (a sorceress, not a witch) flies in on her broomstick and, despite her unpleasant disposition, insists Dirt stay for dinner.
At Grezelda's cottage, Dirt is surprised to actually like Scagly's cooking. He also meets Sora, Grezelda's consort, who seems pretty normal, and doesn't share Grezelda's purple, bumpy skin. Over the meal, Dirt learns that Grezelda was quite powerful before The Techno came to Sealan, and that everyone is afraid of The Techno, who can spy on them from anywhere. Grezelda also claims to be the only one who can fly in the land, except for The Techno's spaceship.
After a fitful night of sleep, Dirt sets off again. Grezelda insists he take Scagly with him to make sure Dirt is guided properly to The Techno - where she says Dirt will probably die. Scagly will be returning home before that point.
