Ted notes that this other "Ted" has a cybernetic eye is well, though
it's one the other eye. It isn't a twin of Ted, and does not appear to
be his evil twin.

Then the other "Ted" communicates with Ted. "Who are you? Are you Ted
Smythe as well? I think one of us may have just been shifted from
another dimension."

And then the three creatures open fire on the other "Ted" and his
companion. A shot hits the alternative boy in the neck, and takes his
head off. Ted's companion cries out "That boy looked like me!"

The three Maligs swing around, realizing there are more than two
people in this chamber.
