- Digging Yourself Deeper: Connor trying to apologise for shooting Abby with a tranquilizer dart.
- Foreshadowing: This line from Cutter to Stephen: "You think I would just have stood by and watched you get torn to pieces?"
- Stock Dinosaurs: The series finally lives up to this by going all-out with a pack of raptors.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: Cutter insists on this, though it's more to preserve the timeline than out of sympathy for the raptors.
Recap / Primeval S 2 E 1
Cutter returns from the Permian to find there have been huge changes in the timeline. Claudia Brown has never existed and the team have their own headquarters: the ARC (Anomaly Research Centre). Still reeling from this (and the news of Stephen and Helen's affair) Cutter has to lead a mission to deal with a raptor invasion of a shopping mall. Along the way, he learns something which could help them in their fight against the anomalies.
