Primeval 4.5 Spoiler Summary & Clip
Connor and Abby are sent to investigate an odd anomaly signal, which keeps appearing and disappearing from the ARC sensors. They travel to a small coastal village, where myths about a sea monster attacking local farm animals are rife. After investigations involving unhelpful locals, they realise they are tracking a dangerous Koolasuchus, which started by attacking cows, but has now moved on the local fisherman.
Meanwhile, Matt is disturbed by Emily’s disappearance, but with no one else knowing that she’s still in the present he cannot reveal his secret to the others. He heads off to find her, in a desperate race against time.
As Abby stalks the creature, Connor is ordered by Philip to track down the unusual anomaly signal. When he finds it in a cave near the coast, he also discovers this is where local farmers have been hiding the remnants of a fuel smuggling operation. The dangerous chemicals have been wreaking havoc on the anomaly signal, preventing it from opening fully, and making its signal weak and random. Philip is over the moon with Connor’s discovery; forget the creatures, this is the real information they need. They eventually manage to reopen the anomaly and force the creatures back through, though not before one of the smugglers gets his just desserts…
Meanwhile, Ethan has taken revenge on Emily by kidnapping her. He is determined she will suffer the same fate as his beloved Charlotte, and so plans to bury her alive in the family mausoleum. Matt manages to get her just in time to save her life, but despite his best efforts, Ethan still escapes. Matt’s flat is no longer safe; he can’t be sure Emily will be protected there. There’s only one place left to go; the ARC.
