After rescuing BB-8 from the scavenger known as Teedo, both him and Rey are crossing the desert back to Rey's home. However, a Nightwatcher worm emerges from beneath the sand, and has its eyes on BB-8 for a meal. The moment Rey and BB-8 spot it, the beast dives into the sand and chases them. The worm cuts them off, but Rey jams its mouth with her Quarterstaff. The two of them then run off in the opposite direction, and the worm un-jams its mouth. The beast then dives back into the sand, swims under Rey, and catches BB-8.
Rey waits and watches patiently as the worm swims around beneath the sand. Then at the right moment, launches her Quarterstaff which hits the worm, causing it to spit out BB-8. Rey catches BB-8 and the two take shelter on top of a fallen Walker. The worm does not try to climb up and just looks sadly at Rey. So Rey tosses a piece of junk for it to feast on instead and leaves.
- This episode takes place during Star Wars: The Force Awakens between the time BB-8 is rescued by Rey and then taken to Niima Outpost.
