Over a campfire, Darius tells a spooky story about T-Rex but then it starts raining which takes away the mood — plus, no-one seems interested in what he has to say. The next day, the camp will be looking at dinosaur migration patterns. Darius and the group are given Gyrospheres to drive. Darius joins Brooklynn in one of them.
Brooklynn tells Darius that there’s so much pressure being a social media star and that she just wants people to like her. Suddenly, it starts raining and the thunder hits. Dave tells them all that they must all go back to camp. Darius wants to continue riding alongside a herd of dinosaurs. There’s radio interference which means a change of plans.
Darius helps out Brooklynn and follows a dinosaur to help her vlog. They need to calm down one of the dinosaurs before it spooks a whole herd but it turns into chaos. Roxie and Dave’s vehicle is thrown off a ledge by a dinosaur so the group are stuck. “The Cattle Drive” presents the first problem on the Netflix series.
Calming down the dinosaur
Darius has an idea to help the herd but it leads to a dinosaur damaging their Gyrosphere and they are trapped in mud. It turns out to be sinking mud. The rest of the group arrive to help. Sammy bravely calms down one of the dinosaurs from the herd and touches its horn. The herbivore accepts the plant given to it. This buys the group time to save Brooklynn and Darius.
Darius and Brooklyn are saved and they are sent back to their rooms. Yasmina tells Sammy that she isn’t good at trusting people but she’s trying to make friends here. She shows Sammy her drawings and they hug.
Brooklynn speaks to Darius. He realises that he doesn’t know about dinosaurs as much as he thought and he wants people to like him. He realises he has something in common with Brooklynn.
While reviewing video footage, Brooklynn sees Sammy taking a sample from one of the dinosaurs and is shocked. Why is she taking samples? Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous season 1, episode 3 has some action which enhances the story as the group reach their first spot of trouble.
