As korgoth searches for the golden goblin, specules returns, explaining that he changed into on holiday. Specules uses his magic to kill or incapacitate all however korgoth, who proves too robust for the ridiculous creatures that the wizard conjures through chewing gum. As a remaining resort, specules uses his magic without delay against korgoth; but, he’s knocked off-balance and by accident kills korgoth’s girl. Angered, korgoth takes a two-pronged candle stick holder and impales specules through the eyes, best to locate that the wizard has magically transferred his head onto the lifeless girl’s body. Specules proceeds to fly out the window.
