The Dead Zone has now been reopened because Garlic Jr. was upset that his plan had been foiled. Gohan is protecting the weakened Krillin and Piccolo from being sucked into the Dead Zone. Things aren't going well for Kami either as he is still being attacked by the former guardians of the Earth. Since Kami is being weakened, Piccolo is suffering too. Piccolo tells Gohan that the only way to defeat Garlic Jr. is to destroy the Makyo Star which is the source of the evil fiend's power. However Gohan is hestitant to do this as it might mean that his friends would be sucked into the Dead Zone because he couldn't maintain the force field. Meanwhile the guardians finally let Kami go and send him and Mr. Popo back to the outside of the lookout where Gohan and the others are. Now that Kami is back Piccolo is no longer weakened and can help out. Piccolo and Krillin leave Gohan's protection and launch an attack on Garlic Jr., and tell Gohan to destroy the star. Gohan finally launches a blast that destroys the Makyo Star, therefore making Garlic Jr. weak. Without his source of power Garlic Jr. gets sucked into the Dead Zone, and it closes up. Krillin and Piccolo turn out to be fine, and now everything is back to normal on Earth.
Overall I think this was a good ending to the Garlic Jr. saga. It may not have been the best episode in the saga, but it was exciting to see how they would defeat Garlic Jr. and save the Earth. The only downside to the episode is that there could've been more actual fighting taking place.
