While going back to his cave, Ro-Man made a report to The Great Guidance that he has discovered that humans are now immune to the death ray due to an antibiotic serum. Ro-Man is told to use physical means to kill from now on. Later he kills the assistant of the scientist by throwing him off a cliff and strangling the youngest girl of the group. The Great Guidance ask him why he kidnapped Alice and did not kill her. Ro-Man replied that he will not kill her but he will kill Johnny. The Great Guidance also thought he was a human.
