Earl Reagan fights Old Man Eye for her gland.
FIRSTS & LASTS
First Flesh script by Studio Giolitti.
A substance from the gland in a Tyrannosaur's throat can cure the infection from a bite like a vaccine.
He fights Old One Eye and cuts the required gland out of her neck. He suggests burning down Carver City to rid it of dinosaurs.
Reagan provides the Tyrannosaur gland and Doc performs the procedure to cure his condition.
OLD ONE EYE
Earl Reagan cuts a gland out of her neck, but she survives.
He blames Reagan for the destruction of Carver City and threatens to kill him, but agrees to a truce until the dinosaur crisis is over.
Seven. The Tyrannosaurs eat four Carver City citizens, while the terrible claws eat another and a T Rex eats a Pteranodon. The Robot Sheriff appears beyond repair after T Rex bite.
Robot Marshal's Severed Head: "I am not programmed to deal with this situation."
Drunk: "A tyrannosaur! But they ain't allowed in Carver City...I must be dreaming!"

INFLUENCES & REFERENCES
'Terrible claw is the English translation of Deinonychus, a carnivorous dinosaur which lived in the early Cretaceous Period (about 115–108 million years ago) in North America
A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease, typically containing an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism. A vaccine would not cure Brontowski's infection, it would only be able to prevent it.

Just when you think Flesh can't get any cooler we have a man taking on a Tyrannosaurus Rex armed only with a knife. Sola's art continues to impress and the Robot Marshal's demise is fantastic.
