Caleb is making plans for the escape of the rebels captured by Prince Phobos in the abortive battle of the Meridian Plains. With Blunk's help, he tries to map the tunnel system to the castle's dungeon, but the reconnaissance mission goes wrong and Blunk is left behind on Meridian.
Looking for the Passling, Caleb and the Guardians find and save a Castle Guard wounded in battle and left for dead by Lord Cedric. When the Guard, Tynar, sees Earth and the girls’ concern for his recovery, he switches loyalties and promises to guide them through the complex subterranean passageways into the dungeons where the rebels from the uprising are being held.
The daring raid frees the rebels, and Tynar begins spreading the word among Phobos' guards that the other side of the Veil is not as they’ve been told. Back in Heatherfield, Will impulsively kisses Matt Olsen, who has offered her a pet dormouse named Mr. Huggles earlier in the episode.
