The university students attempt to contact Ken Connell through the classifieds. Ken follows them back to their hideout and finds they are Libyan spies gathering supplies and weapons.

The next day, Connell tries to break up with Debbie so he can settle down with Barbara, but she is distraught and breaks down in tears. Connell decides he must stay in contact with her. He then visits Barbara and patches up their relationship.
