And Willi’s maths suddenly show a surprising improvement, when Gustav secretly accompanies him to school in the shape of a pencil. For Gustav, on the other hand, the Broeselmanns are highly interesting subjects to study.

Ruthless businessman Bernsteiner will stop at nothing now to get his hands on the gherkin secret. Unluckily for him, Gustav himself ends up in Bernsteiner’s hands and in mortal danger, too.

At the very last second, Y9 surfaces again and manages to save Gustav from certain death in Bernsteiner’s laboratory.
