Varg plans to blow up the school to stop the Prospector from destroying the last source of Magic in the universe, however Tom warns him that Lexi might be down there, upon hearing this, Varg withdraws, still missing and worrying about his sister greatly. Tom agrees to go to Earth and stop the Prospector, but Varg, still angry at Tom for turning his sister human, straps a bomb to Tom's wrist and gives him half an hour before the bomb goes off and destroys him, Tom is teleported back to the school. Meanwhile, Benny is back in the Chamber, after running away from the Prospector, he explains what is happening to Ursula and Randal Moon, Ursula and Benny get in Ursula's car and start driving to the school. Back there, Tom goes back into Room 12, where the prospector dares him to send him back to where he came from, but Tom, still being haunted by the memory of drinking the extracted magic, cannot bring himself to do this, instead, he breaks some of the pipes to distract the Prospector, he runs out the room, but as soon as he knows the prospector isn't following him, he sits down on the floor, disappointed in himself for not casting a spell. Benny and Ursula arrive, Tom claims he is not a 'warrior wizard' after being too afraid to cast a spell. Ursula comforts him and they devise a plan to stop the Prospector. Inside Ursula casts a spell, which makes the Prospector fall in love with her, who runs off and casts a spell to create a mirror image of herself. The Prospector runs after the image, while Benny, Tom and the original Ursula shut down the mining factory, but, with the bomb Varg strapped to Tom's wrist about to go off, Ursula creates a passing charm which makes her, Michael and all the students and teacher safely outside. Back inside, Tom turns himself into a mouse, losing all his clothes and the bomb itself. Benny picks up the now mouse Tom outside, just in time, as the bomb goes off soon after.
