Episode Summary

Talking Plants (2)
This episode begins with Kate and Sarah looking over Captain Quade's book. It has caused some happy times, because it gives a chart of things on all the islands. However Sarah decides she wants to find the red flower in the books pages, but both Nicholas and Kate want to locate Percy so they can get those batteries and go home. The 3 decide to split up: Kate to the castaway village to barter, Nicholas to look for Perry, and Sarah to do whatever she wants. She decides to look for the node which will take her to the red flower. Meanwhile, Captain Blackhart is conspiring against the rest of the pirates. He believes he has finally figured out Quade's map, so he plans on forcing the 6 pirates on his ship to dig for the treasure and then killing all but Dougal with the same poison he killed Captain Quade with. He even spreads the poison out on a blade. Kate is at the castaway village when Carmen decides to try and get something valuable for the batteries. She feels that there is nothing Kate has which is as valuable as the batteries, so she thinks she should just give them to the pirates. Kate agrees to give them Captain Quade's book if they give her the batteries. Meanwhile, Sarah has found the node which goes to plant island. She calls Kate with the good news, but Captain Blackhart arrives before Sarah can get away. Her only escape is through the node, so she jumps to Plant Island. Mars and Carmen reveal nobody returns from Plant Island, and in a desperate attempt to save her sister Mars agrees to show Kate the node enterance. As they arrive at the node enterance, the pirates are still digging. Sarah decides to call Kate at the most inconvient time, and the phone goes off where Blackhart can hear it. He chases Kate and Mars, and in the process he cuts Mars with the poisoned blade. Now Kate is forced to take him to the treehouse so the poison won't circulate through his system. Over on Plant Island, some Plants begin teasing Sarah. Sarah gets scared, and she ends up running into the plants with the cell phone by teh enterance to the node. Nicholas is surprised when Kate walks into the tree house with Mars, until Kate reveals that Mars is poisoned. She tries to cool off Mars, who is now burning with fever, while Nicholas tries and calls Sarah. Of course, Sarah doesn't answer because she nolonger has the phone. The last thing Mars manages to mention before losing consiousness is that Carmen has medicines which can stop the poison. Sarah races to Castaway Island while Nicholas tries to keep Mars eyes awake. Carmen tries to barter with Kate for the medicine. She wants to learn the location of Kate's hideout, but Kate refuses. Finally Carmen decides to give Kate the medicine, but she also states that Kate's hideout will no longer be secret if Mars survives. Mars tells her everything. Kate arrives back at the treehouse. She applies the medicine, and then she sends Nicholas to the node to look for Sarah. Over on Plant Island, Sarah has begun crying. She is hopelessly lost, without the cell phone, and no way to get back to the node. Just then, a weird flower appears. It has the ability to communicate with the people. It safely leads her back to the node. On the other side of the node, Nicholas arrives, and the pirates have just finished digging up a box. The box is filled with rocks and a note. The note states that the chart cannot successfully be derived without the book which he took to his grave. Blackhart doesn't know Kate has this book now, so in a fury he and the crew return to the ship. Nicholas jumps through the node, sees the phone, and begins calling Sarah's name. He is surprsed when she comes through the plants successfully. She is carrying the talking plant. Mars successfully recovers, and Kate accompanies him back to Castaway Island. Sure enough, Mars tells Carmen that Kate is hiding in a tree house, but he claims that the poison has deleted the location of the tree house from his memory. Carmen gives an exasperated sigh as Kate grins, and the episode ends. To Be Continued . . .moreless
