Whatever It Takes is the nineth episode of the third season in the Netflix series, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. The episode was released on May 21, 2021.
The group is forced to switch gears when a familiar face returns to Isla Nublar. Now, getting off the island is no longer the most important thing.
Returning to the dock, the group notices that the helicopter passengers are not there to rescue them, have weapons, and appear to be unprepared. Soon after, one helicopter is attacked by the T. rex and flies away with Ben, Kenji, and Sammy. After the helicopter crashes, Ben, Kenji, and Sammy escape. Meanwhile, the T. rex chases Darius, Yaz, and Brooklynn but becomes distracted after hearing a mercenary from the park's Main Street and walks away. The T. rex chases Jack (one of the mercenaries), who supposedly escapes by hopping on the ladder of the helicopter, only to be eaten alive by the Mosasaurus, all of which are witnesses by Darius, Brooklynn and Yasmina. In a different helicopter, Dr. Wu arrives and reveals his plans to retrieve his private laptop; Darius, Yaz, and Brooklynn agree to steal it first for the possibility of having Dr. Wu incarcerated for creating the hybrid dinosaurs. Traveling through the lab's vents, the three campers manage to take the laptop. However, Brooklynn is grabbed and taken by Hawks, one of Henry Wu's armed guards; before leaving their sight, she gives Darius the laptop.
