The Sisterhood of Karn decide to kill the Doctor, believing him to be their enemy. Later, flash back to the 3rd Doctor, who gets called out to an underground nuclear reactor suffering from a rash of power failures. The Doctor suspects the answer lies in the caves the reactor was built out of.

It is more likely that this was The Brain of Morbius: Part Two rather than episode three, based on the broadcast pattern.
