Synopsis for "The Monster in the Streets!"
While out getting a hot dog with Ben and Johnny, Crystal begins to feel dizzy and sick when, suddenly, there is an earthquake caused by a strange energy source. Johnny leaves with Crystal to see what Reed can learn about Crystal's sudden illness, leaving Ben to tackle the problem alone.
Johnny arrives at the Baxter building with Crystal to find Reed experimenting with new ways to change Ben back to normal. Reed puts his work aside to test Crystal and find out her problem. Elsewhere, Sue is shopping when another earthquake strikes, and she confronts a strange energy creature. She is met by Dr. Zolten Rambow who implores Sue to stop the creature but not to destroy it, because it is a living being.
Back at the Baxter Building, Reed learns that the cause of Crystal's illness is due to the pollution in the rest of the world and, to survive, Crystal must return to the Hidden Land. He also discovers from testing her blood a method to change Ben. Crystal bids farewell to Reed, Ben, and Johnny and is transported home by Lockjaw. Johnny flames on in anger and flies away to clear his head.
After Johnny finds Sue trying to keep the monster contained, she asks him to go get Reed to help. Returning back to the Baxter building, Johnny finds that Reed has already started the experiment to change Ben back to normal and requires Reed's constant attention at risk of Ben's death. Reed now must choose whose life to save: his best friend or his wife.
