Plot Summary[]

Within her home, Mae Turner is researching the supplement in the Tyrannosaurus food she and the campers had discovered in the previous episode whilst the campers themselves relax and play cards. In the middle of the game, Mae offers to make chestnut soup if someone collects the nuts, to which Yasmina Fadoula accepts. Whilst collecting the nuts, Yaz discovers her notebook, reminiscing when she comes across a sketch of her mother until she is suddenly surrounded and killed by the Indominus rex, Toro, a Scorpios rex, and a Ceratosaurus. Yaz suddenly awakens and realizes she was having a nightmare, causing Mae to ask if she's okay with her sudden startle and suggests getting some rest, although Yaz refuses and offers to continue helping Mae. As they continue, Mae discovers the supplements in found within the Tyrannosaurus makes the dinosaurs more aggressive and inhibits their ability to feel pain for some unknown test. Mae quickly decides it's very important to get the kids off the island, with the group coming up with a plan to call the supply plane by getting rid of the altered food and breaking the feeding platform, so the kids can then sneak aboard the plane and stay until they reach the mainland. The plan goes off perfectly until Darius Bowman and Yaz fail to find the power box for the feeding platform, and Kenji Kon's coughs accidentally wake up the T. rexes. Kenji and his group reassemble with Darius and Yaz as they find and destroy the power box, warning them that the mother T. rex is approaching, but Yaz freezes in fear until Kenji turns back and pulls her in order to force her to start running. The plan works and the plane would arrive within three hours, but as they're celebrating a BRAD discovers them and ignores Mae's commands to stand down, forcing the group to run. They attempt to reach an airlock leading directly to the airstrip, but more BRADs arrive through it and the group is forced to take a different tunnel into an arctic biodome, with Brooklynn tricking the BRADs into destroying the lock system and locking robots wthin the service tunnel. Finally safe, the group take some Mantah Corp snow gliders through the biome, where Yaz has a nightmare of being attacked by the Mosasaurus. While Yaz throws it off as being car sick, they encounter a Kentrosaurus named Pierce, who was dying of hypothermia. Despite wanting to catch the plane, the group agrees to help get Pierce out of the area via towing him on some metal sheets with the gliders. As they begin, the BRAD overseeing Pierce attacks the gliders, but Yaz manages to knock it into the water of a frozen lake they were passing over. After saving Pierce, Mae confronts Yaz and convinces her to talk to her friends about her issues before sending her off with them to catch the plane, but unfortunately arrive too late. While Darius tries to cheer the rest up, Ben Pincus convinces him to head back to Mae with him. With Darius gone, Yaz fully breaks down and tells the others about her nightmares and desire to go home, with the others comforting her as they relay similar experiences. Meanwhile, a man, having arrived with the supply plane, is approached by an aggressive BRAD that he quickly commands to pacify. The man asks the robot if Pierce had died from being left in the cold, to which the BRAD responds that the BRAD monitoring him is unresponsive, greatly angering the man.
