Season 2, Episode 1: All or Nothing

On a bridge spanning a deep gorge, a fierce battle unfolds with Drakul’s raiders. Marguerite and Veronica watch as Summerlee is hit. Tribune, betrayed by Drakul, hurls a bomb that destroys the bridge…throwing the men into the river far below. Veronica clings to the hope that her friends have survived and searches for them with Marguerite. Once reunited, they discover that Tribune has saved Roxton’s life and demands a favor in return. Since they need a boat to return home, they follow Tribune to a run-down fishing village – where he disappears. A beautiful prostitute named Raina informs them that Nemak has enslaved the town. When our gang clashes with Nemak and his goons, they are thrown into jail.

Season 2, Episode 2: Amazons

While looking for a way off the plateau, Roxton, Malone, and Challenger save an Amazon woman from an attacking Deinonychus. Challenger is injured in the melee and the three are invited back to the Amazon’s camp where they are welcomed with open arms.

By the time they realize they will die as soon as they have served their purpose, it is too late to save themselves.

Season 2, Episode 3: Tourist Season

Challenger is trying to harness the energy of the wind to generate electric power for the tree house when a storm erupts and a gigantic ball of lightning strikes Challenger’s windmill. In the ensuing silence, the sputtering sound of a small engine is heard, and a helicopter appears in the distant sky. It draws nearer and lands in the clearing – all on board, a family of 20th century tourists and their pilot, survive. As Challenger and the others marvel at the new arrivals, Marguerite tries to come up with a way to escape the plateau in the helicopter, at the expense of the others if need be. Meanwhile, a hostile tribe has also seen the smoking helicopter land and want to make it theirs, resorting to a kidnapping as a means of achieving that goal.

While mapping an unexplored valley, Roxton is surprised by a terrified young woman, who after uttering an enigmatic warning, dies in Marguerite’s arms.

There, under a mysterious influence, the three are led to separate rooms where they each find opulent evening wear of the same vintage as that worn by the young woman. Marguerite and the two men begin to take on new personalities, eerily re-enacting a romantic triangle of intrigue, with Marguerite playing Roxton against Malone as both men compete for her attention. Meanwhile Challenger and Veronica similarly find themselves at the castle, where they are welcomed by Roxton, Marguerite, and Malone, all strangely possessed by the spirit-wearers.

Balar has the horse followed and they are captured. One of the customs of the tribe is to sacrifice a virgin to appease a monstrous dragon, but Roxton saves the young woman and steps right into Balar’s trap. The only way to stop the dragon now is for the rightful king to hunt it down and kill it.

We learn that an alien invader, who could not control the dinosaur’s huge body, occupied it.

They locate it in foothills nearby, and discover that the damage is not too serious, and enough fuel for three days flight off the plateau.

The Lost World Season 2 Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The group is still on the plateau fighting their way to survive while finding a way home. I wish this series would return.
