Broadcast notes:

WTTW split the story into two parts, with the break occuring at the start of episode four when Sskel tells his prisoners not to move. [source: ChicagoEpguides]

Outro: As the more astute among you will have guessed by now, the difficulties with the monster, the Ice Warriors, Galaxy 5, et. al, have not been entirely resolved at this time, which means, obviously, a wait of one Earth week for the dénouement. In terms of stellar time that is less than a millionth of a blink of an eye. Unfortunately for Earthlings it will still seem like a week. Be with us next Sunday night at 11 for the conclusion of "The Monster of Peladon." [source: ChicagoEpguides]
