The New Tomorrow – Episode 9
The Ants and Barbs compete to decide whether OMAR or JAG will lead their warriors. The winner will be the team that captures the other team’s flag and the only weapon allowed is a kind of paint ball made of fish guts and berry juice. Because ERIN runs off with the Barb flag the Barbs win by default.
While the contest is on SKY slips away to the cave, seen by ZORA. He studies the pictograms again, the teardrop, a landmark and a door in the ground of the Forbidden Zone.
He goes to the Forbidden Zone, and just manages to escape a machine. He sees the landmark and finds the door, but can’t open it. When he sneaks back to the Barbs, ZORA sees him again and he asks her about the machines.
HARMONY catches GWYN on her way to approach FLAME, to protect herself from HARMONY. GWYN tries again and reaches FLAME while he’s exercising outside, unaware that she’s being watched by someone reporting to HARMONY.
FLAME is haunted by his loss to SKY. HARMONY suggests they send out a spy to see what the defences of the Ants and the Barbs are. She tells SHADOW to select a Warp to be a spy. SHADOW insists that the Warp will need a reward if he succeeds – Harmony suggests the Warp will become a Priv.
FLAME rejects CRUSHER, the chosen Warp. When HARMONY chooses another Warp, FLAME reassures SHADOW that he will not keep his promise that the Warp will become a Priv.
HARMONY then tries to Discard GWYN. When GWYN stands her ground they go to ask FLAME to intervene. FLAME tells HARMONY off. Only he can Discard. Then he tells GWYN off too and says she must replace the chosen Warp and spy on the Ants and Barbs.
JAG and OMAR quarrel about the way the Barbs win, FAYGAR doubts that the Ants will follow JAG and eventually FAYGAR and ZORA suggest that SKY becomes leader.
