Just below the Intercept dialogue, you can see a countdown timer. You can wait for the level to be put back together --  in this case in about an hour -- or hand over 19 gems for immediate relief.

As your progress and capture more pigs, you can trade the pigs in for new characters.

To get the most out of each unlocked character, you'll then need to purchase upgrades using the coins you earn during gameplay.
