The episode's preview shows a shot in which the female Gorgonopsid who has killed the Scutosaurus is approached by another specimen of her kind. This shot doesn't appear in the episode proper. See more
When one of the gorgonopsids hops into the water-hole, creating a muddy splash, there is a bit of earth protruding the surface of the water. Just as the splash occurs, it simply disappears and is replaced by a brownish silhouette that bears its shape, though it's missing the patterns and details that the bit of earth originally had. It is as though the animator working on the shot had simply forgotten to add it on top of the splash-effect. See more
Kenneth Branagh - Narrator
After millions of years of evolution, our distant ancestors have filled the oceans and crawled out onto land. They have survived the giant insects of the swamps, and mushroomed into massive reptiles armoured to the teeth. But now they've waged so long is now much more than a battle between predator and prey. The whole planet is entering a different kind of crisis. One that will destroy most of these monster reptiles and wipe out 90% of life on Earth.
