With apologies to JMS. In episode 5 the friendship between the Old Silurian leader and the 3rdDoctor offered Earth's last, best hope for peace with the Silurians. It failed. (Scenes of spreading plague appear on screen.) Now, that bond of friendship could result in something far more crucial - Earth's last, best hope for victory. (Cue theme music.)
