September 18, 2020 (2020-09-18)
Dinosaur enthusiast Darius is given the chance to visit Camp Cretaceous after winning a video game. At the camp, he meets head counselors Roxie and Dave, and his fellow campers; self-entitled VIP Kenji, phone addict Brooklynn, friendly cowgirl Sammy, athletic loner Yasmina, and a timid boy named Ben. Late at night, Darius decides to sneak out after curfew to visit an enclosure containing his favorite Compsognathus (Compy). He is followed by Kenji and Brooklynn, and after an incident, the trio mistakenly allows a group of Velociraptors to get face-to-face to Kenji and Darius.

After the pair is rescued by Roxie and Dave, Darius and Kenji are punished and tasked with shoveling dino poop, while the rest of the group visit a genetics lab where they witness the early birth of an Ankylosaurus, nicknamed Bumpy, who bonds with Ben. While Brooklynn is caught entering restricted parts of the lab by Dr. Henry Wu after encountering Sammy sneaking around in there, Darius and Kenji leave their shoveling task to view a newly made Carnotaurus (later named Toro). The pair manage to return in time, and Darius and Kenji become friends. Late at night, an anonymous person inserts a flash drive into a drone, which is then sent into Isla Nublar to record the dinosaurs.

The next day, the kids are given the chance to ride Gyrospheres near a group of dinosaurs. After a storm grows nearby, Dave and Roxie ask the kids to stay behind while they investigate. The group ignore the instructions and ultimately cause a stampede of dinosaurs. After an incident, the group manages to return to safety. Afterward, Sammy and Yasmina bond as friends, but on her video Brooklynn catches Sammy taking a DNA sample from a Sinoceratops.

As the group is left alone once again by Roxie and Dave, Brooklynn begins to suspect that Sammy may be up to something; her suspicion grows after her own phone disappears soon after. Outside, the group watches as an Indominus rex goes on a rampage through the camp. The group runs back to their bunkers, only to find them completely destroyed by the I. rex. Deciding to find help, the group head south under the command and leadership of Darius, while the I. rex arrives at the Carnotaurus paddock and breaks Toro out.

Heading to the genetics lab, the group reunites with Bumpy. Along with it, the group arrives at the genetics lab, where they find a paranoid scientist named Eddie, who tells the group of Wu’s involvement in the creation of the Indominus rex. After Eddie is killed by the I. rex, the group manages to escape in a van. During the drive, Sammy accidentally reveals that she stole Brooklynn's phone, causing Yaz to crash the van.

In the wreckage of the van, Sammy reveals to the group that she has been working as a spy for a bioengineering-company called Mantah Corp (a rival company of InGen), in order to pay off her family’s debts, shattering her relationship with the group. After a crashed helicopter (flown by Simon Masrani[7]) causes a flock of Pteranodons to escape their aviary, the group head to the main park to look for help. After the group survives an encounter with the Mosasaurus in the Lagoon, a siren begins to blare around the park.

To evacuate the island, the group head to the park's main dock on a monorail. During the ride, the group is attacked by the flock of Pteranodons that had escaped earlier in the day. After a wrecked train is spotted on the tracks, Ben completes a railroad switch to prevent the train to derail. While celebrating, a Pteranodon causes Ben to fall off the train.
88"End of the Line"Zesung KangScott KreamerSeptember 18, 2020 (2020-09-18)
Shortly after Ben's fall, the group leaves the train to enter the park's tunnels. Once there, they are attacked by Toro. After a brawl, the group manages to get the dinosaur to run away. They finally reach the dock, only to find out that they've been left behind, but vow to not stop trying to find a way off the island. Deep inside the island, Bumpy approaches a motionless Ben, and his fingers suddenly twitch, revealing he survived the fall.

Production[edit]

According to staff writer Sheela Shrinivas and story editor Josie Campbell, the hardest characters to develop for the show were Yaz and Brooklynn, as the writers struggled to find ways to make the characters "likable" to viewers.[15] However, they ultimately decided that the best thing to do would be to bring out the character's weaknesses, in an attempt to have viewers sympathize with each character.[16] Additionally, the role of Dave was written specifically for Glen Powell, which he said made voicing the character "easy and fun".[17]

While executive producing, Trevorrow said he had two rules he told the show's crew: to treat the dinosaurs as actual animals when creating a story, and to avoid animating aerial shots to keep scenes "grounded".[18] Programs such as V-Ray, Autodesk Maya, and Nuke were used to create the series. The COVID-19 pandemic began during production, and the series crew had to work from home as a result.[19][20]

The series also features original music composed by Leo Birenberg, using themes from the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World soundtracks, composed by John Williams and Michael Giacchino respectively.[21] In an interview, Birenberg said that he first heard of the show from music executives Alex Nixon and Frank Garcia, who he had previously worked with on Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, after being recommended by Giacchino, who he had already met.[22]
