Martin wakes to see the Warden under attack and runs to his aid-- but his other companions sleep on, unaware as the battle rages. Brome, on his way to being a hero, passes himself off as a corsair and is able to re-enter the dreaded Marshank, where he manages to contact Keyla and announce his plan to save ALL the slaves. Badrang hatches a plot to get rid of Clogg forever. The slaves excitedly await release from the prison pit but as Brome moves the heavy grating they are seen by a guard who races to raise the alarm.
Brome is able to convince the guard that he is acting on Badrang's orders, which must not be questioned, and drops INTO the pit. There he kicks down the wall to reveal Grumm's old hidden escape tunnel to freedom! Meanwhile, as Martin battles to save the Warden, Rose and the others awake and rush to help him. They head for the distant mountains but are attacked by the Gawtrybe, unruly and unpredictable rogue squirrels. Martin is forced into combat with Wakka, their leader. As he prepares to do single-handed combat with his foe, back at Marshank the escape tunnel collapses on the slaves.
Differences from Martin the Warrior
- In the episode, Keyla panicked when the tunnel caves in, but in the book, Keyla actually was the only one who does not react with fear, but rather snaps in anger.
- Wulpp never figured out that Brome was really a mouse in the book.
