- They take a cab up Mount Diablo, and while it's no robot dragon, it does the trick.
- The ground is sucking at the cab and at their feet, because the ground is Gaea and Gaea is evil.
- They get to the giant, who is big and ugly and who improbably has a bunch of construction equipment lying around.
- And there's Piper's dad tied to a post.
- Hedge suggests they attack the giant while Piper frees her dad. They all turn to Jason as the leader, and he says that Hedge's idea seems like the best one.
- For his part, Leo has an idea involving the construction equipment.
