The inherent dangers of the alien planet continue as the Robinsons flee south to avoid the terrible, sub-zero deep freeze threatening them. Dr. Smith defiantly stays behind in the Jupiter 2 where he obtains peculiar orbital data. Initially delighted that the Robinsons are blindly heading to their doom, deprivation from human contact finally gets to the devious doctor and he sends the robot to warn them that they're jumping straight from a freezer into a frying pan. And a once-frozen sea becomes a tempest-tossed danger. Written by
