Episode Summary

Kryten wakes up on a moon surrounded by the remains of a crashed Starbug. He detaches his hand and tells it to return to Red Dwarf and bring back Lister and Cat. Upon his rescue, Kryten tells them that Rimmer was captured while on a psy-moon (a terraforming moon that reshapes itself to mimic a persons' psyche). The crew search for him. The crew find out that Rimmer is hanging in a dungeon about to be tortured by "The Unspeakable One". The crew find the dungeon and drive back The Unspeakable One, saving Rimmer. They try to escape in Starbug, but the ship gets caught in the swamp and begins to sink. They begin to realize that Rimmer's personality is what has created the circumstances, not The Unspeakable One, and they realize they must make Rimmer feel good about himself to weaken The Unspeakable One's power so they can escape.moreless
