I’ve just enjoyed the latest episode of Primeval: New World, ‘Breakthrough’.
While their anomaly detector is still offline from the damage Evan caused, the team discovers footage of a Triceratops on the internet, which leads Evan and Dylan to the home of Evan’s old rival, Howard Kanan. Meanwhile, preferring to avoid Evan in light of his recent discovery, Mac helps Toby to discredit the footage of the Triceratops since Leed’s new assistant at Project Magnet is far from helpful.
Dylan works with Leeds and his men to keep the Triceratops distracted while Evan and Kanan work to fix the handheld detector, in the process figuring out a way to measure how long an Anomaly will last. They manage it, however when they send the Triceratops back through the Anomaly, Kanan follows with the detector before it closes. Mac leaves before Evan can see him, and the team come together and bond a little more (with the obvious exception).
The best aspects of this episode were the introduction of a potential-Helen character in Kanan (travels through anomalies for his own ends), and Mac wanting to know more about the ARC, which will hopefully lead to a re-appearance of everyone’s favourite Primeval character, Connor.
It was a great episode, and I can’t wait for more.
Thanks for reading.
