When we left off, Curdie had remembered the devious goblin back-up plan if carrying off Princess Irene didn't work- they would flood the mines. Curdie's father and Curdie rush to seal up the mine’s passageway that connects the goblin and human portions. Working as a team, the miners successfully build a huge buttress to fill the hole which they are confident will hold back the waters that the goblins unleash.

We will pick up as the miners leave to go home, as a torrential storm rages outside.
