The episode starts off with Alex and Jirard explaining right away that they got two pieces of heart offscreen: The Treasure Hunt mini-game and the Chest game.

Right after Jirard gets the Cane of Byrna, he ends up dying to a giant boulder, giving him another death. However, as usual, he had an extra fairy, so he wasn't given a gameover. He did, however, immediately get the Bombos Medallion, accompanied by many small tunes pertaining the Bombos Medallion.

Soon after Jirard enters the Swamp Palace, he dies again, giving him his six death, and leaving him with only one fairy left. He shortly uses that fairy, though, giving him 7 deaths and no fairies left.

Going off of the same tradition of Ganon's Secret Base, Jirard fights Arrghus, an evil eye creature that protects the 2nd maiden. Jirard is almost defeated, but through the power of clenching, he is able to defeat this beast. Upon doing so, he saves the 2nd maiden to learn more about Ganon's Base and end the episode.
