The Marshalls are navigating through the caves under the Lost City in order to try and figure out how the crystals can help them get home. Rick knows that the right combination of crystals will make the door home appear, but they have to find out the right combination of crystals and determine if a door does appear if it is the right door. Through this process, they have to avoid the Sleestak. Holly is feeling like a grown-up, but her father and brother, she feels, aren't treating her as such.

She wants to help in finding where the hole leads, but again her father and brother feel it's too dangerous for her to help them.

This was written by Star Trek veteran writer D.C. Fontanta. The episode is actually one of the better shows to me. Holly meets a special "friend" who helps her along in this. It showcases Holly more than many episodes. Her character is allowed to expand here, as well as could be in this series. Erica Hagen does a nice job as Holly's friend. Given that female guest stars were rare on this show, she was nice to watch. Also, Fontanta gives this episode a nice ending. There's hope for the Marshall family yet, it seems. To watch it again 35 years later, it all looks so hokey, and the acting is fair at best, but it sure was great fun as a kid.
