EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Evading a missile sent after them by the Cyborgs they have just escaped, the Robinsons crash-land on another planet. Smith, Will and the Robot are captured by an alien, Tiabo, and taken prisoner. Tiabo tells them that an army of thousands is mobilizing against them. When he leaves, allegedly to report to his superiors, they escape and go back to warn the others. Smith, who has been drinking copiously from a small keg, discovers that the liquid contained a high explosive. He has become a walking bomb. Will returns to Tiabo to plead for and antidote and discovers that the Alien’s story was invented to frighten them away. He is the only inhabitant of the planet.
