There is then
some lovely footage of T-Shirt and Sally running back though the squares
of the board game, including Sherwood forest, the Egyptian Temple,
and the street in London. Eventually they reach the Captain, who is
becoming impatient. The Captain is concerned when he sees T-Shirt,
but Sally reassures him. They give him an account of their adventures.
Whilst they are doing this, T-Bag creeps in in the background, takes
some clothes from the captains belongings and hides in an alleyway.
The Captain decides
to waste no more time before they get rid of T-Bag and tells the children
that he has hidden the compass on his boat. He sends them off to get
Whilst they are
gone, T-Bag comes in disguised as a Captain and greets Captain Cockle.
She tells him that she has just come back from a long voyage. She
asks him if he has any souvenirs and then asks if she can have a look
at the pearls. He hands them to her and she gets up with them as if
to inspect them more closely.
come back and Sally asks where the pearls are. The Captain explains
that he is showing them to the nice lady and she turns around and
lifts the peak of her cap to reveal that she is T-Bag. She dashes
off back to the T-Room.
Back in the T-Room,
she gloats over how easy it was to get the pearls.
The Captain is
kicking himself over how stupid he's been.
to smash the pearls.
Back in the village,
T-Shirt decides to go and brust in on T-Bag and get the pearls back,
but Sally rubbishes the idea.
that she can't destroy the pearls.
The Captain jumps
up saying that he has an idea, but he then tells the children that
it wouldn't work and tells them to forget about it. T-Bag appears
to gloat at the children. She tells them not to bother trying to get
the pearls back because she has surrounded the lighthouse with landmines,
barbed wire fences and a moat full of killer sharks. The children
yell that they hate her. T-Bag revels in this and then asks the Captain
hates her aswell, but he says that he only hates himself for getting
them all into this mess in the first place. He then says that T-Bag
was right all the time and that nobody should tangle with Tabatha
Bag. He decides to go over to T-Bag's side. He tells the children
to get lost.
T-Bag is impressed
by this. Captain Cockle offers to go and work for her, much to the
children's despair. The Captain pleads with her and then tempts her
by saying that he makes a good cup of tea. T-Bag then takes him on
and they go back to the T-Room.
At the T-Room,
the Captain gets brewing. T-Bag tells him that the tea is okay.
T-Bag looks in the saucer and gloats because she can see the children
looking miserable. She then decides to have an early night so that
she can start taking over the world the following morning as fresh
as a daisy. Captain Cockle assures her that nothing can stop her,
but then puts in a remark about the pearls being the only thing. She
assures him that they are well hidden, and he expresses his concern
that hiding them is only a temporary measure and that she should destroy
them. She tells him that she has tried, but he says that during the
night, the magic of the pearls is weakened, as if they are sleeping.
He makes T-Bag conjur up a grinder and she pops them in and tells
him to get grinding. He tells her to tell the children what they are
doing just to rub salt into the wound. She thinks that this is a lovely
idea and turns away to speak through the saucer.
hear her and despair.
When T-Bag has
finished her announcement, the captain has finshed grinding up the
pearls and they are nothing more than a white powder. T-Bag then goes
to bed, satisfied that nothing can stop her.
Sally and T-Shirt
are filled with regret about what they could have done differently.
Suddenly, the lighthouse starts flashing. T-Shirt sees this and recognises
that the flashing is morse code. He starts to decipher the message.
the Captain goodnight. He reminds her that he has nowhere to sleep
and asks her if he can have his belongings back. She agrees and magics
his chest into the T-Room. She then returns to bed.
The Captain opens
the chest and Sally and T-Shirt get out of it. Sally has the compass
in her hand. Sally is relieved that he isn't on T-Bag's side at all.
T-Shirt compliments him on the idea of sending the morse-code message
to them telling them to hide in the chest. Sally asks if the pearls
have really been destroyed, but the Captain tells her that he ground
up his peppermints (that he has been scoffing all the way through
the series). He gets the pearls out from his apron and starts laying
them out on the compass. They then find that there is one missing,
and he assumes that he must have dropped it. They start searching
the floor, and T-Bag comes in. She captures them all, tying their
hands behind their backs, and reveals that she wasn't convinced by
the Captain's story about the pearls being weakened in the moonlight,
so she kept one pearl back just in case.
Here is a transcript
of the final speech:
Well, I've certainly learned something today, haven't I - trust no-one.
Not a soul! From Now on it's going to be me. Me on my own, all alone.
I will share my glory with no-one. And as for you Sally Smug-Faced
Simpkins, I have a special fate in store for you. You're going to
wish you were never born! And who will come to your rescue? Him (indicating
Captain Cockle)? Him (indicating T-Shirt)? Or this little
precious pearl perhaps? (She holds the pearl flat in her palm
over the compass) This precious, wonderful global of goodness.
I doubt it, don't you?
During the speech,
T-Shirt, who is standing close next to Sally, manages to untie Sally's
bonds. Sally then swiftly slaps T-Bag's hand upwards so the last pearl
flies into the air in an arc, coming to land right in the centre of
the compass on the empty space where it should be.
There is an odd,
low pitched drone. A red glow envelopes the crystals and a bright
globe of light rises from the compass and then explodes outwards to
fill the T-Room. The light leaves the lighthouse and travels to the
village centre where it hangs briefly and the air fills with sparkly
lights. There is a heavenly choir singing and the sound of metallic
chimes. The light then returns to the T-Room and a shaft of white
light envelopes T-Bag. She screams and then vanishes.
congratulates the children on destroying T-Bag and winning the game.
We then have the classic ending, where Sally turns to thank T-Shirt,
but he has vanished. She then turns to ask the Captain where he has
gone, but the Captains has disappeared too. She then returns to the
shop and Thomas comes in and acts as if nothing has happened. The
