Having moved his boat to a safe location and scouted out the island, Christian is determined to visit the prison island Malo. Tony, David and Anna accompany Christian to Malo and show him the lagoon where the divers obtain the blue weed which gives the Q his long life. Tony takes it upon himself to obtain a sample for Christian. When he returns, David and Christian join him to see a large stockpile of the weed while Anna stays behind. Curious about the blue weed, Anna tastes it... the others return to finds her unconscious. Christian brings Anna into the village and implores the Prime Minister for medical aide. The Prime Minister assures him the effect of the blue weed will last no more that a few hours and that Anna will be fine, thanking Christian for delivering one the the "brats" he has long pursued. Christian demands to speak to the Q, declaring the Prime Minister to be an ignorant and uncivilised man for having so little regard for the children. To counter the accusations, the Prime Minister challenges Christian to a game of chess, the stakes being the lives or the freedom of Anna and Christian. Mark, Su Ying and Jeremiah wait at the beach as Christian bests the overconfident Prime Minister. Despite being challenged in front of the assembled onlookers to live up to the deal, the Prime Minister refuses. Christian plays his remaining card: explaining that news will arrives shortly from Malo about a large theft of blue weed, giving his word that it will be released once he and Anna are free. Christian departs the island for good, promising to send help.
