Tom, Kipper, and Arthur eat some dinner and play card games while keeping watch.
Arthur calls Grandfather on his doll-phone to check in, and hears that things are really wet underground; when Arthur tells him that a guy named Snatcher is probably behind this, Grandfather freaks out and tells Arthur to stay away from him.
Apparently Snatcher is the reason why Grandfather must live underground… dun dun dun.
Then Arthur notices a procession exiting the Cheese Hall. It's the hunting party from before.
Snatcher appears and tells everyone that they need more cheese than ever, because the Great One requires it. Soon their revenge will be complete.
Arthur, Tom, and Kipper sneak closer, and Arthur decides to rush into the Cheese Hall while the doors are open. Everyone thinks it's dangerous, but Arthur does it anyway.
