Blandings replaces the crystal and that stops the solar flares, then he disappears exactly at six o'-clock.
This third season is getting to be really bad. I'm also wondering why no one has questioned the origin of the LOTL? Since Blandings said he was a repairman, then that indicates someone made the place (since a repairman is necessary), yet no one asked him about this at all. I know time was short and other things were happening, but still, that would seem to be a fairly important question, trying to find out who made the place and why. Likely Blandings wouldn't have given them a straight answer, but they could have at least asked the questions.
The LOTL is obviously a place that does not run according to normal physical laws. The sun can be stopped from moving; the moons can be controlled; solar flares can be turned on and off. Everything seems to be run by the pylons with their crystal matrices, all powered by some kind of underground heart. This all indicates that the LOTL is not a naturally-occurring place; the whole thing is some kind of artificial construct developed by someone with a very advanced technology, since even time-travel is involved.
It could be some kind of experimental laboratory to study the reactions of humans to other species and times, especially since a Cro-Magnon (Malak) man from humanity's long past had gotten into the land. Enik's people go back at least a thousand years; this was established much earlier in the series.
It would seem to me, at least, that whoever or whatever devised the LOTL are not a nice group of beings at all.
