Last appearance of Doc, last Ken Armstrong script.
Stars are a unit of currency.
Spike Plants are spiked plants.
He saves Claw Carver's life.
OLD ONE EYE
She tracks Reagan across water and into a trap set for her with spike plants in a pit.
He can't swim. Carver pushes a ranger off the raft and into the water to aid his own escape. Joe Brontowski saves Carver's life and he pledges to return the favour.
Six. Doc is crushed by a prehistoric snake, Reagan kills the snake. Claw Carver pushes a ranger off the raft to lighten the load and Old One Eye eats the poor fella up, whilst the other two unnamed rangers perish when a Phobosuchus upturns the raft, eating one and drowning the other. Old One Eye and the Phobosuchus fight and the former kills the latter.
Claw Carver (whilst pushing him off the raft): "Heck! Sorry feller - I slipped!"
Claw Carver (as Old One Eye devours him): "What a terrible thing to happen - One Eye's got that brave man!"
Reagan: "Try chompin' on that, you slimy critter!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
The Phobosuchus has tasted humans before, probably the same individual from the first Flesh strip.
