Clyde’s father uses the pendant, and its mind control ability, to get a flashy new car, take his son on a shopping spree, and more – all by using his newfound power of persuasion to convince people to give them away. But Clyde is still troubled by what’s happening, and even when his father repeatedly tries to tell him to forget his mother and his friends, he’s still worried. Unable to reach Sarah, Luke and Rani call on Maria, whose dad is able to find out about the origins of the pendant from UNIT’s database. The pendant is indeed an alien artifact giving its wearer power over the minds of others…but with repeated use, it begins to mutate the wearer into something not unlike the alien race that made it, and eventually the change is irreversible. Can Clyde and his friends keep this from happening – or is he about to lose his father again for good?
