Terra Nova Episode 6 - Runaway Recap
Taylor, Jim and the rest of the colony are thrown for a loop when an orphaned girl shows up at camp claiming to want to find a way back to 2149. She's dirty, starving and scared. After a meal and a hairbrush, she goes to stay with Jim and his family while they try to figure out what's going on. Taylor is suspicious of the girl from the start and thinks she may have been sent from the Sixers to spy.
Mira and the sixers show up with their war paint and bad ass attitudes to get her back. The girl refuses and wants to stay and Mira is visibly annoyed that she gave up two hostages for nothing. Taylor and his silky white beard are pissed that Mira even knew the girl was staying with them. He blames it on the mole in camp and enlists Jim's help in identifying them.
Turns out that Taylor was right all along and the girl is a spy. Mira was putting up a show so the little girl could gain Taylor's trust. She breaks into Mira's old house to steal a box that was hidden in the floor. Jim catches her before she can escape with it and takes her to Taylor and his bitchin' dino desk. Where can I get one of those?
The girl has no idea what's inside or how to open it and claims she thinks Mira will hurt her brother if she didn't steal it. Taylor doesn't believe her but Jim does. He goes against orders to find his brother but finds himself erm, turned upside down. Literally. He's almost a dino snack before Mira's minions find him and take him back to their hide out. Mira questions Jim and seems disappointed that he believes in Taylor. She paints him the bad guy and says that he pissed off a lot of people back in 2149 and if she gets rid of him, she'll get to see her daughter again. When Jim gets back to camp, it looks like he may be starting to doubt Taylor. What is he hiding?
