The New Tomorrow – Episode 16
FLAME is optimistic about his impending fight with SKY. He watches SKY moving rocks by the dam and instructs SHADOW to keep him working all day and to cut his food rations.
In the Ant camp, Dan tells ZORA that GWYN was captured by the Warps. ZORA becomes concerned that the Warps know exactly where and when to find people from the tribes. She looks for KWARLI and JAG so they can build more traps and orders the Ants to work on a fence around the camp.
SAL, CASS and OMAR don’t like ZORA’S bossiness and when KWARLI turns up on a bike made from pieces of the Ant shrine, OMAR attacks him for pulling pieces off their shrine. Then he disappears. ERIN, LEANNE and DAN try to care for the sick pony and DAN, sad about GWYN, also watches the chicks with SAL.
At the Priv complex, FLAME and HARMONY test GWYN’s loyalty to the Privs. and when they trap her in her own lies, they discard her. As she delivers GWYN to the Discard camp, HARMONY sees FAYGAR leading the Discards in prayer to the Ancestor, and get the Warps to take FAYGAR away. SKY shifts rocks to and fro, under heavy guard and taunted by FLAME, and SHADOW starts to feel sympathy for SKY. HARMONY uses SKY’S increasing physical weakness to persuade FAYGAR to give up her “mumbo jumbo” and return to work.
FAYGAR has words with GWYN about her betrayal. OMAR has sneaked off to the Priv compound to rescue GWYN and FAYGAR not yet knowing the full story of Gwyn’s deceit. GWYN slips away alone and when OMAR and FAYGAR take off,
FAYGAR is caught by some Warps. KWARLI turns up on the bike and rescues OMAR from the Warps that are close on his tail. OMAR apologises to KWARLI. When they get back to camp, they’re made welcome by everyone except ZORA who says that the Ants need to survive more than they need FAYGAR.
SHADOW brings SKY food but only a couple of potatoes. GWYN tries to persuade HARMONY to take her back as a Priv, but is sent back to the Discards. FLAME arranges for Warps to sing to stop SKY sleeping and he’s not happy when SHADOW suggests he’s going to make it an unfair fight.
As they sit with the pony, DAN tells LEANNE that GWYN was a spy. ZORA calls the Ants & Barbs together and forbids any more arguments or discussions, LEANNE tries to persuade DAN to tell ZORA about GWYN but he won’t. ZORA reminds them it’s all about survival now.
