Synopsis (Now You See Me - Air Date: November 28, 2011)
Taylor and Mira square-off in the jungle where he learns more about her plans and about his son. But then they both face a pre-historic enemy they must conquer together. Meanwhile, the “Sixer” mole scrambles to cover its tracks as Terra Nova goes on lockdown and Jim closes in. Also, Zoe faces a difficult decision as the Ankylosaur she has been caring for grows rapidly.
Full Recap (spoilers)
A dinosaur blinks. It's the baby ankylosaurus that Zoe asked to keep as a pet, and she just loves it.
Meanwhile, Taylor tells Skye that he'll be gone for 24 hours. He knows it's the three-year anniversary of her parents' death from syncillic fever, and he suggests they walk together to Memorial Field upon his return. Taylor puts Jim in command until he gets back.
Taylor motorcycles to a waterfall, rappels to the river below, sees the calculations Lucas left on the rocks - and the remains of a campfire. When he looks closer, Mira appears and holds him at gunpoint. She wants to see if Lucas has gotten closer to an answer, too. Taylor thinks he has. "Lousy day to be you," says Mira.
Josh apologizes to Skye for stealing the medicine, and getting her involved with the Sixers and the problems that caused. When Skye notes that reinforcements and weapons are coming on the Eleventh Pilgrimage - and so is Kara - Josh becomes uncomfortable, saying things have changed and so has he.
Flashes of light are seen in the tree line. Jim thinks that it's the Sixers. Reynolds finds a return signal coming from the New Construction area. When Jim and Reynolds search the building, Jim spots a drop of blood in a can of paint sealant.
As Mira tells a handcuffed Taylor that her vehicle is two kilometers away, Taylor runs away. Mira fires a blast that stops him.
Back at the hospital, Malcolm orders the baby ankylosaurus's return to the wild, explaining that it'll be unable to coexist with others unless it's released now. Elisabeth, knowing how Zoe feels, asks for one more day. Meanwhile, Skye, who works there, steals away to use a device that instantly heals her bleeding hand.
Jim brings the blood and sealant to Elisabeth for analysis. She can't extract the DNA from this, but Malcolm can.
Taylor asks Mira how so many Sixers were on one pilgrimage. Mira says her deep-pocketed employers gamed the lottery and if Taylor hadn't caught on, she'd be back in 2149 with her daughter already. Taylor sneers. Mira smacks him, explaining she's an ex-con who couldn't afford medicine for her sick daughter and took an opportunity a better life for them.
When pterosaurs appear overhead, Taylor slips away, then surprises Mira, defeats her in hand-to-hand combat, and takes her prisoner. Then two slashers appear in the bushes.
After a Sixer radios that Skye is late for a meeting, Skye volunteers to join Josh's ditch-digging detail.
Mira tells Taylor that the reason Lucas hates him stems from Somalia. When Mira asks what happened there, Taylor grabs her by the throat. Then they realize they're being watched.
After Malcolm tells Jim the DNA extraction is too difficult, Jim smashes up the lab until Malcolm cooperates. Jim and Elisabeth then catch Zoe trying to sneak off with the baby ankylosaurus.
Skye slips away from the work detail and meets the Sixer, who takes her their headquarters, where she gives Carter a device loaded with intelligence information. Carter then allows Skye to see her sick mother, adding that it if wasn't for Mira's "wonder cure," the woman wouldn't be alive.
After Elisabeth tells Jim that getting the DNA from the blood sample that Malcolm extracted will take a day, Skye arrives - and sees the blood work in progress.
When a slasher's appearance distracts Taylor, Mira runs. Taylor blasts the slashers, which chase Mira, followed by Taylor, to a cliff above the waterfall. The slashers attack, forcing Taylor and Mira to jump over the falls. They survive, but they've lost the gun. Taylor and Mira realize that the slashers are young couple marking out fresh territory for themselves, so they won't stop attacking.
Taylor hands Mira a knife. They'll fight the slashers here and live to fight each other later. Meanwhile, Skye contaminates the blood sample, which stops the process at 80 percent complete.
As Taylor constructs a bow, Mira cooks up a bag of tar. Meanwhile, Jim finds Zoe playing "mean mommy" and baby ankylosaurus with her stuffed animals, so he voices the baby's desire to be reunited with its mother.
When Elisabeth tells Jim about the destroyed DNA sample, Jim wants a list of people who had access to the hospital. However, Elisabeth recovered enough data to determine the DNA came from a female, so there are 47 suspects.
Taylor notices Mira's tattoo, and asks if she was a secessionist. Mira replies she worked security for them, but when the movement was defeated, she was imprisoned. Taylor says that she's always choosing the wrong side.
When the male slasher appears, Mira hits it with a flaming arrow and Taylor throws a flaming spear that ignites the tar bag attached to Mira's arrow. As the slasher wails and roars, the female slasher charges, then moves toward her wounded mate, who leads their retreat. Taylor says he and Mira could've been allies in a parallel universe. Mira agrees.
As the Shannons release the baby ankylosaurus - Elisabeth has implanted with a chip so Zoe can track it - to the wild, its cries are heard by a female ankylosaurus, which comes over and nuzzles the baby. Everyone's happy.
Taylor returns to the colony and tells Jim that Lucas is making progress. He also tells Skye that they'll take that walk in 15 minutes and her parents would be proud to see the woman she's become, then wonders if there's something on her mind. Skye says no, but her face says something else.
Next Episode: Within (Airs: MON 8/7c DEC 12)
Lucas races to assemble the final pieces of his mystery device, in advance of the 11th Pilgrimage's arrival. Also, Jim and Taylor confront the colony's "Sixer" mole, Skye is reunited with a familiar face and Terra Nova prepares for war.
