Episode Summary

Roxton, Marguerite and Malone are mapping a series of caves, trying to find one that leads off the plateau without much luck. Marguerite, all the while, has been gathering gleaming gemstones in her backpack. At least she will not go back empty handed. A fog begins to fill the air around them...dense...deep fog. From out of the mist forms take shape: cloaked figures and eerie rock formations, encircling a stone slab. They find themselves surrounded by Druid-like figures who swarm over Marguerite. Roxton tries desperately to protect her, but she is torn from his grasp. The two men are restrained and Marguerite is carried away and deposited on the stone slab. It turns out that Marguerite figures in an ancient prophecy and that her fate has finally caught up with her, here. What it means, she must discover for herself, but it involves retrieving a sacred jemstone. She, along with Roxton and Malone, must go through several obstacles like headhunters and a leap of faith to accomplish Marguerite's task.. Back near the treehouse, Veronica and Summerlee make a startling discovery in the jungle: a baby. As they take the child home, they are being watched by inhuman eyes. An ape-woman, softly follows their footsteps. After a time, the ape-men raid the tree house and "steal" the baby, after which Challenger and Summerlee come to a conclusion even more startling than the child's appearance - that the ape woman who originally followed them is the baby's mother. Veronica at first refuses to believe this, having started to bond with the infant, but comes to understand the truth after seeing the mother and child together.moreless
