King Kai realizes that he neglected to allow time for Goku's trip back to Earth, but estimates that Goku should be able to travel back along Snake Way in two days — still a day late for the Saiyans' arrival. With King Kai's help, Goku contacts Master Roshi telepathically and requests that he wish him back to life with the Dragon Balls.

Nappa destroys the warehouse district surrounding East City and Vegeta scolds him for potentially putting a Dragon Ball in harm's way.

Nappa & Vegeta after arriving on Earth

Goku's final day of training with King Kai in Other World has arrived, prompting Goku to review the techniques King Kai has taught him, notably the Spirit Bomb and Kaio-ken. The time comes for Goku to depart for Earth, and so he contacts Master Roshi telepathically by placing his hand on King Kai's back.

Meanwhile, Roshi is using the bathroom, causing his guests Bulma, Oolong and Puar to believe the man is delirious as he is seemingly talking to himself. Here, Goku tells Roshi that he is ready to be revived by Shenron in order to face the Saiyan threat only days away from reaching Earth. Master Roshi gives Goku his word and rushes out of the bathroom to get the Dragon Balls.

Before the group summons the Eternal Dragon, Oolong suggests that they take the opportunity to wish death on the Saiyans, and then that they may then revive Goku another year, but he is informed death-wishes exceed the power of Kami, the one responsible for creating the Dragon Balls. Shenron is summoned, and thus Goku has his life restored.

Meanwhile in Other World, Goku's halo disappears and King Kai bestows on him a gi sporting his own symbol, to represent the training Goku has done under the Kai. King Kai then remembers that he hasn't configured into his training agenda the time necessary for Goku to return to Earth, and so he presses Goku to get moving. After Goku departs, Gregory confesses that he believes Goku may be stronger than King Kai, but King Kai defends his pride by saying that he is still funnier in the least. As Goku speedily flies back down retraces his steps down Snake Way, two Saiyan Pods crash into the center of a large city, signaling the arrival of the Saiyans.
