“Terra Nova” has enough issues with ground-based dinosaurs, as demonstrated in last week’s series premiere. So what happens when prehistoric creatures can fly?
Nothing good, it would appear.
In Monday’s (Oct. 3) episode, the colony discovers that it lies in the migratory path of a massive flock of pterosaurs, smallish but nasty winged dinosaurs that don’t take kindly to the new forms of life in their midst. Jim (Jason O’Mara) and Taylor (Stephen Lang) have to figure out a way to keep the humans safe before Terra Nova is overrun.
While all that’s happening, Elisabeth (Shelley Conn) finds out that a former classmate of hers (Rod Hallett) is also living in Terra Nova, and may have had something to do with recruiting her for a pilgrimage.
Their reunion, which Jim doesn’t seem to take much notice of at first, is the first clip below. The second has Jim and Josh (Landon Liboiron) encountering the pterosaurs for the first time.
“Terra Nova” airs at 8 p.m. ET Monday on FOX.
