Bats, Scat and Team Zoo hits the ground running!

Marvellous! The crack team designed to get to the bottom of the Animal Apocalypse in "ZOO" are already like  high school students ,with the two scientific brains at odds. Mitch's lovable curmudgeon is not growing on Jackson, partly because he keeps insulting his father. Abraham and Jamie are sticking with their Guys,despite Abraham telling Jackson to play nice and Chloe is having to wrangle all four of them!

Of course these alliances are no good for sorting out the Wolf attack at the Prison, so Abe and Mitch are despatched to trap and check out a wolf, whilst Jamie, Jackson and Chole are to play French foreign office officials to gain access to the prison. I find it utterly amusing that any of these clever folks are taking orders from Chloe, but I guess Curiosity is getting the better of them!

Meanwhile in Antartica two feuding Lesbian spouses are snapped out of what must be many Spats by the sight of Bats! A creature not often found in the region, now clogging up their solar panels with evil intent  and turning off the power! After clearing the panels, one bat causes such havoc inside that the bam up generator is destroyed and then those crafty little Chiroptera  just cover up the panels again, naughty naughty! Their last ditch attempt to appease their winged friends by releasing the birds in the research centre is not quite enough and the poor pair are left to freeze to death.

The locals are gearing up for a wolf hunt, neither Mitch or Abe are particularly enamoured with this plan, but Mitch riles up the locals with his tone and superiority  and Abe has to do his diplomatic best to smooth ruffled feathers. Mitch and Abe bond  when Mitch reveals an ex and a daughter and a tiny chink in his armour is revealed. Despite his spiky nature he is my favourite character!

 Chloe is doing no better at the Prison where she gets under the skin of the FBI agent at the scene. Their later encounter in the hotel bar shows this guy had her pegged and is not just a Pretty (rugged) face, the fact she is so evasive only intrigues him more.

Jackson is worried about the lack of Scat,So to speak, which indicates there was no Alpha Animal drawing in the rest of the the Pack and  it is only when he sees video footage that he realise apocalyptic Death Row inmate Lee Evan Hartley was given due subservience and is to all intents and purposes Pack Alpha.  Evan Lee was helped to escape by the wolves who literally dug him out under the fence and covered in the hole and then he used a proven animal technique to mask his scent by rolling in dead animal guts. 


The Wolves round up Mitch and Abe and Evan Lee but he is disturbed and does a runner leaving the gang able to get a dead wolf and do some tests on it after it's rather pungent blood indicates some form of infection.  In Mitch's Hotel Bedroom, a lab is set up using all manner of cobbled together equipment. I will never look at coffee pots or coconut water the same way again! Infection rate seems exponentially high and it has explosive results.








Equally explosive the revelation that Evan Lee Hartley knew Jackson's Dad, at least well enough to be photographed with him!
