Shaw discovers the alien weapons are vulnerable to nitric acid and they leave Earth after shaking hands.

John goes out on patrol and finds a man in a snow drift. The man tells John that he is from the year 3957 and must get back to his time machine. The man leaves and because he cannot return to the same time goes back a further 20 years to say thank you.
