A deep chasm in a rocky valley explodes. A closer view of the same chasm that opened in the last shot. A clapperboard appears at the beginning (only series title is legible). Shot starts with a static shot of the open chasm (for 11 seconds) before explosions detonate on the surface, then jets of steam and explosions in the chasm itself which starts opening. Side smoke blows over the scene as the steam rises and the chasm widens. It stops moving at 35 seconds, the side smoke clears at 45 seconds and the chasm steam jets stop at 55 seconds. The shot ends at 58 seconds. Seen in episode.
