As they determine their next plan, the Doctor becomes aware that Howie has started to say "praise him". The group uses Howie's voice over the intercom to lure the beast into the hotel's beauty parlour and trap him there temporary. The Doctor talks to the Minotaur-creature and discovers that it wishes to die, and he realizes that the hotel has become a prison for it. Instinct forces it to feed and the hotel provides sustenance for it. Howie manages to escape by appealing to Gibbis' desire to be used and seeks out the beast so it can kill him. It breaks out and does so.

* ActualPacifist: The Doctor at first praises [[PlanetOfHats Gibbis' people]] as this, for their long history of total pacifism in the face of invasion after invasion.
