Planet of the Apes Encyclopedia: Tomorrow's Tide (reprinted from Ape Chronicles #42 by Terry Hoknes)


Breakdown of the storyline and scenes from the TV episode Tomorrow's Tide

  • 1: TV Show Opening Credits (same for all TV episodes) Astronauts Virdon and Burke are in their space craft as their ship is thrown into the future. The scene transposes to the future world of Apes with footage of the astronauts on the run from gorillas with a shot of Galen. Earth time and Ship time match dates at August 19th 1980. The latest date shown for the earth time clock is June 14th 3085. Credits read: Roddy McDowall, Ron Harper, James Naughton
  • 2: Galen, Virdon and Burke are running briskly along the ocean. They stop to have an argument about keeping close to the water so they will lose their foot tracks in the wet sand. Galen states that apes are not so fond of water like the humans are. Burke asks if they might be near Pismo Beach or Malibu. He then spots a raft out at sea with the man Gahto tied to it. Virdon and Burke quickly remove their shirts and swim out to sea to help the old man. Gahto is tied to a wooden raft. Virdon and Burke pull the raft to shore but a huge shark swims right around them. Galen is worried on the beach as he watches the shark approach them. Galen gives Virdon his knife to cut Gahto free from the raft. Gahto is still breathing. Somebody had put him on the outward tide deliberately. Gahto regains consciousness and Virdon and Burke carry him to a cave just off the beach. Galen gathers their things and brings it along. Virdon and Burke question Gahto about who he is and where he came from. The man states that he is dead because the gods have willed it . He tells them his real name was Gahto. They notice he has some type of ID band bracelet around his arm put there permanently for life. Galen recognizes it as a Band of an Enforced Labour Camp. Galen says he will be killed if he is found wandering away from a permitted area where these humans must stay near the Labour Center. This is a method used to keep the humans from straying. Gahto continues to state that he is dead and Galen says if he wants to be dead than he should be allowed to die. He says some humans would be better off dead than face their current situations. Virdon tells Galen to watch over Gahto in the cave while Virdon and Burke scout the area. Galen can’t get a reaction from Gahto so he yells his name but still no response.
  • 3: Down the beach a bunch of humans in shorts with pitchforks are hunting for fish and filling a bucket. Gorilla guards watch over the humans and also warn humans of sharks. A shark approaches one middle aged fisherman who is further out in the sea. The gorilla soldier fires his gun repeatedly at the shark but misses. Virdon and Burke watch from the top of a cliff. Burke jokes that if this is Paradise Cove then they’ve sure made a lot of changes. They notice the human fishermen wearing the same bracelets as Gahto. A gorilla soldier catches Burke and Virdon and takes them off to the Labour Center.
  • 4: The gorilla soldier takes Virdon and Burke through the village. Many female humans stand around in the center and then follow them. The guard leaves them to wait in the middle of the village. Virdon and Burke ask the humans if they know Gahto but all the humans turn away and pretend to ignore them. Romar and Soma, relatives of Gahto listen but pretend to ignore.
  • 5: The gorilla soldier tells Hurton, the main prefect ape of the village, about finding these two stray humans who are probably out to steal fish. The soldier brings Virdon and Burke in to be questioned by Hurton who then accuses them of stealing fish. Hurton says if they are no good for fishing than take them out and kill them. Burke jumps in angrily and says that they are two of the best fishermen in this part of the world. Virdon says they are not wearing bracelets because they were farmers just released from a big farm inland. Burke says they have been practising cause all they ever wanted to do was fish. They lost their release papers while fishing. The prefect says they will test them by having them swim under fire with a sheet of flames within the water. Hurton says that having these two humans at their prime will please Bandor as it will help meet their quotas. Hurton orders the guard to not feed Virdon and Burke before their test with the fire tomorrow.
  • 6: Back at the cave near the beach Galen brings some food to Gahto. Gahto says he has failed the gods and that he is dead. Galen is frustrated with Gahto and tells him to shut up. Galen goes out to look for Virdon and Burke.
  • 7: One of the best human fisherman goes swimming under flames of fire. He makes it and the other humans cheer. Virdon is given a spear. A gorilla soldier shoots at him which gives him the signal to go out in the water. Virdon takes a deep breath and plunges himself under the flames and makes it to the other end. The humans cheer on and Hurton looks pleased.
  • 8: A gorilla soldier on horse back finds an empty raft along the beach which once had Gahto tied to it.
  • 9: It is now Burke’s turn to swim under the flames in the water. As he succeeds by swimming under the flames and coming up out of the water at the other side the humans on the shore cheer on. Both Virdon and Burke achieved catching a fish each on their spears. They are taken back to Hurton who then tells another ape that Bandor will want to raise the quota. Hurton thinks that Bandor will try to make him squirm. Bandor had wanted his own nephew to take over the village instead but now Hurton is feeling confident about facing Bandor tomorrow.
  • 10: Romar, one of the male humans comes back and speaks to his wife, Soma the daughter of Gahto. Soma questions him on whether Virdon and Burke had said anything further about Gahto. Galen overhears this conversation and notices that Virdon and Burke are there.
  • 11: Hurton says that Virdon and Burke can stay in the hut of the oldest guarded fisherman. Galen runs in angrily and tells Virdon and Burke not to run off again and to come with him. Galen and Hurton, the prefect go inside to talk. Galen calls himself Zooma and says that he is on an expedition from Central City and his two humans got away. Zooma says he will take the two humans and be on his way. Hurton thinks this is all very irregular and says that they cannot leave. Hurton states that only the gods of the sea can determine their fate. Zooma questions about these gods that Hurton says the gods are the sharks.
  • 12: Three sharks are seen swimming in the ocean. Gorillas lead the humans down to the beach. Galen says he does not want the humans fed to the sharks but Hurton says it must go on. Zooma goes to talk to them and sneaks his knife to Virdon. Virdon and Burke are ordered into the water. Hurton, Zooma, the gorilla guards and two dozen humans watch Virdon and Burke swim out to sea. A shark approaches. Burke and Virdon swim low and wait for the shark to come. They wrestle it and use the knife to wound it and then they climb on its back. Virdon and Burke resurface riding on the back of the shark. All of those watching on the shore notice Virdon and Burke’s survival and the humans cheer. The human fishermen all run out to see the dead shark. Zooma states to Hurton that he can now take Virdon and Burke and leave. Hurton is not sure about that. A gorilla soldier races up to the prefect to tell him about finding an empty raft that was Gahto’s. Hurton says this is sacrilege and whoever did this must be punished. Gahto’s daughter Soma overhears and says to Romar that she knew her father was alive. Hurton says if the old man Gahto lives then someone must die.
  • 13: Galen rushes back to the cave where he left Gahto near dead. However Gahto is now aimlessly wandering on the beach out to the ocean. Galen screams out for Gahto and finds him and drags him back to the cave. Galen is quite frustrated with him.
  • 14: Back in the village fishermen with spears wander by as Burke and Virdon are kept inside a hut. Galen comes in and they all have a chat on what they should do to escape and how to deal with Bandor who is arriving tomorrow. Bandor is in charge of many of the producing areas and he presides over the banding of the fisherman ceremony. Virdon questions Galen whether he has ties with Hurton and might be able to set them free. Galen says he is more concerned that Hurton’s patrols do not find Gahto in the cave or Virdon and Burke will be killed immediately. A gorilla soldier comes in and orders Virdon and Burke to go out fishing.
  • 15: Back at the ocean Virdon and Burke are out fishing with the other humans. Gorilla soldiers fire guns at sharks. They drop their latest catch into a basket of fish. Virdon notices rope but the gorilla soldier orders them back to work.
  • 16: Hurton complains to Zooma about how Bandor raises the quota every year. Zooma says that the humans are liars and that they will try to escape. Hurton says that Bandor will decide the fate of Virdon and Burke.
  • 17: Back in the hut Galen tells Virdon and Burke what Hurton has said. Gahto’s daughter Soma comes in. She says her husband Romar is afraid they will both die. Virdon tells her that they have hid Gahto in a cave. Galen takes her for a walk out of the village towards the cave.
  • 18: Romar, the husband of Soma, sneaks out of his hut and goes to Virdon and Burke’s hut looking for his wife Soma. Virdon says she is ok and that she has gone to see her father. Romar is screaming and he leaves in rage. He is shot in the arm by a gorilla soldier. Virdon and Burke come out of their hut to give aid to Romar’s arm. Romar says he will fail the test tomorrow and be put to death because he will not be able to swim now with his injured arm.
  • 19: Bandor, the orang-utan arrives. Hurton says he has a special surprise for Bandor.
  • 20: Virdon and Burke are fishing and two ape Drayman in charge of the fish wagon complain that the ropes are missing. Humans continue to fish.
  • 21: Bandor and Hurton have a meeting in Hurton’s hut. Hurton calls for the two humans to be brought. Hurton explains that this chimpanzee named Zooma had lost his two slaves but he does not have papers on them. Zooma took a female slave instead. Bandor says he will band these two humans himself tomorrow.
  • 22: Late at night Virdon and Burke are cooking fish in their hut and working on the rope they stole to make a net.
  • 23: A new day and Bandor personally is putting bands on his new fishermen in front of everyone in the village. They melt the bracelets sealed on the humans arms. Bandor says he must raise the quota again. Bandor and Hurton notice the two humans Virdon and Burke are missing. Galen brings Soma and Gahto towards the beach.
  • 24: Burke rings a huge gong drum which draws Hurton, Bandor and all the gorilla soldiers to the beach where they find Virdon and Burke working out at sea. Galen sends Gahto out to pretend he is in charge of the fishnet. Virdon and Burke explain to Bandor that they can now catch more fish with one net than the humans can collect in an entire month. This way the elderly humans do not need to fish anymore and can live in peace. Hurton tells Bandor it was part of his surprise plan all along. Zooma (Galen), explains that Hurton saved Gahto so that he could teach the other humans on how to make these nets. Zooma asks Bandor to hold the rope tight while Zooma holds the other end on the fishing raft while Virdon and Burke push it out to sea. On the beach everyone watches wondering what they are up to. Burke tells Galen to grab a paddle to help them escape. Barton tells the gorillas to shoot but its too late as the raft makes it way around the rocks and disappears.
  • 25: Later back on shore Virdon, Burke and Galen light-heartedly play on the beach running and laughing.

Galen rushes back to the cave where he left Gahto near dead. However Gahto is now aimlessly wandering on the beach out to the ocean. Galen screams out for Gahto and finds him and drags him back to the cave. Galen is quite frustrated with him. Later at the village hut Galen says he is more concerned that Hurton’s patrols do not find Gahto in the cave or Virdon and Burke will be killed immediately. Later in the hut Gahto’s daughter Soma comes in. She says her husband Romar is afraid they will both die. Virdon tells her that they have hid Gahto in a cave. Galen takes her for a walk out of the village towards the cave. The next day Galen brings Soma and Gahto towards the beach. Burke rings a huge gong drum which draws Hurton, Bandor and all the gorilla soldiers to the beach where they find Virdon and Burke working out at sea. Galen sends Gahto out to pretend he is in charge of the fishnet. Virdon and Burke explain to Bandor that they can now catch more fish with one net than the humans can collect in an entire month. This way the elderly humans do not need to fish anymore and can live in peace. Hurton tells Bandor it was part of his surprise plan all along. Zooma (Galen), explains that Hurton saved Gahto so that he could teach the other humans on how to make these nets. Zooma asks Bandor to hold the rope tight while Zooma holds the other end on the fishing raft while Virdon and Burke push it out to sea. On the beach everyone watches wondering what they are up to. Burke tells Galen to grab a paddle to help them escape. Barton tells the gorillas to shoot but its too late as the raft makes it way around the rocks and disappears.
  • GAHTO’S DAUGHTER - Chapter 10 on DVD for “Tomorrow’s Tide”
  • GALEN - Young adult male chimpanzee. Considered a renegade by other apes. He travels along with the human astronauts Virdon and Burke. He is wanted by Zaius and Urko. Galen, Virdon and Burke are running briskly along the ocean. They stop to have an argument about keeping close to the water so they will lose their foot tracks in the wet sand. Galen states that apes are not so fond of water like the humans are. Burke asks if they might be near Pismo Beach or Malibu. He then spots a raft out at sea with the man Gahto tied to it. Virdon and Burke quickly remove their shirts and swim out to sea to help the old man. Gahto is tied to a wooden raft. Virdon and Burke pull the raft to shore but a huge shark swims right around them. Galen is worried on the beach as he watches the shark approach them. Galen gives Virdon his knife to cut Gahto free from the raft. Gahto is still breathing. Somebody had put him on the outward tide deliberately. Gahto regains consciousness and Virdon and Burke carry him to a cave just off the beach. Galen gathers their things and brings it along. Virdon and Burke question Gahto about who he is and where he came from. The man states that he is dead because the gods have willed it . He tells them his real name was Gahto. They notice he has some type of ID band bracelet around his arm put there permanently for life. Galen recognizes it as a Band of an Enforced Labour Camp. Galen says he will be killed if he is found wandering away from a permitted area where these humans must stay near the Labour Center. This is a method used to keep the humans from straying. Gahto continues to state that he is dead and Galen says if he wants to be dead than he should be allowed to die. He says some humans would be better off dead than face their current situations. Virdon tells Galen to watch over Gahto in the cave while Virdon and Burke scout the area. Galen can’t get a reaction from Gahto so he yells his name but still no response. Later on back at the cave near the beach Galen brings some food to Gahto. Gahto says he has failed the gods and that he is dead. Galen is frustrated with Gahto and tells him to shut up. Galen goes out to look for Virdon and Burke. Later Galen makes his way to the Village and overhears Romar, one of the male humans speaking to his wife, Soma the daughter of Gahto. Soma questions him on whether Virdon and Burke had said anything further about Gahto. Galen overhears this conversation and notices that Virdon and Burke are there. Hurton says that Virdon and Burke can stay in the hut of the oldest guarded fisherman. Galen runs in angrily and tells Virdon and Burke not to run off again and to come with him. Galen and the prefect go inside to talk. Galen calls himself Zooma and says that he is on an expedition from Central City and his two humans got away. Zooma says he will take the two humans and be on his way. Hurton thinks this is all very irregular and says that they cannot leave. Hurton states that only the gods of the sea can determine their fate. Zooma questions about these gods that Hurton says the gods are the sharks. Three sharks are seen swimming in the ocean. Gorillas lead the humans down to the beach. Galen says he does not want the humans fed to the sharks but Hurton says it must go on. Zooma goes to talk to them and sneaks his knife to Virdon. Virdon and Burke are ordered into the water. Hurton, Zooma, the gorilla guards and two dozen humans watch Virdon and Burke swim out to sea. A shark approaches. Burke and Virdon swim low and wait for the shark to come. They wrestle it and use the knife to wound it and then they climb on its back. Virdon and Burke resurface riding on the back of the shark. All of those watching on the shore notice Virdon and Burke’s survival and the humans cheer. The human fishermen all run out to see the dead shark. Zooma states to Hurton that he can now take Virdon and Burke and leave. Hurton is not sure about that. A gorilla soldier races up to the prefect to tell him about finding an empty raft that was Gahto’s. Hurton says this is sacrilege and whoever did this must be punished. Gahto’s daughter Soma overhears and says to Romar that she knew her father was alive. Hurton says if the old man Gahto lives then someone must die. Galen rushes back to the cave where he left Gahto near dead. However Gahto is now aimlessly wandering on the beach out to the ocean. Galen screams out for Gahto and finds him and drags him back to the cave. Galen is quite frustrated with him. Later back in the village Hurton complains to Zooma about how Bandor raises the quota every year. Zooma says that the humans are liars and that they will try to escape. Hurton says that Bandor will decide the fate of Virdon and Burke. Back in the hut Galen tells Virdon and Burke what Hurton has said. Gahto’s daughter Soma comes in. She says her husband Romar is afraid they will both die. Virdon tells her that they have hid Gahto in a cave. Galen takes her for a walk out of the village towards the cave. The next day Galen brings Soma and Gahto towards the beach. Burke rings a huge gong drum which draws Hurton, Bandor and all the gorilla soldiers to the beach where they find Virdon and Burke working out at sea.

Burke tells Galen to grab a paddle to help them escape. Barton tells the gorillas to shoot but its too late as the raft makes it way around the rocks and disappears. Later back on shore Virdon, Burke and Galen light-heartedly play on the beach running and laughing.

Burke jokes that if this is Paradise Cove then they’ve sure made a lot of changes. They notice the human fishermen wearing the same bracelets as Gahto. A gorilla soldier catches Burke and Virdon and takes them off to the Labour Center. The gorilla soldier takes Virdon and Burke through the village. Many female humans stand around in the center and then follow them. The guard leaves them to wait in the middle of the village. The gorilla soldier tells Hurton, the main prefect ape of the village, about finding these two stray humans who are probably out to steal fish. The soldier brings Virdon and Burke in to be questioned by Hurton who then accuses them of stealing fish. Hurton says if they are no good for fishing than take them out and kill them. Burke jumps in angrily and says that they are two of the best fishermen in this part of the world. Virdon says they are not wearing bracelets because they were farmers just released from a big farm inland. Burke says they have been practising cause all they ever wanted to do was fish. They lost their release papers while fishing. The prefect says they will test them by having them swim under fire with a sheet of flames within the water. Hurton says that having these two humans at their prime will please Bandor as it will help meet their quotas. Hurton orders the guard to not feed Virdon and Burke before their test with the fire tomorrow. The next day one of the best human fisherman goes swimming under flames of fire. He makes it and the other humans cheer. Virdon is given a spear. A gorilla soldier shoots at him which gives him the signal to go out in the water.

Galen, Virdon and Burke are running briskly along the ocean. They stop to have an argument about keeping close to the water so they will lose their foot tracks in the wet sand. Galen states that apes are not so fond of water like the humans are. Burke asks if they might be near Pismo Beach or Malibu. He then spots a raft out at sea with the man Gahto tied to it. Virdon and Burke quickly remove their shirts and swim out to sea to help the old man. Gahto is tied to a wooden raft. Virdon and Burke pull the raft to shore but a huge shark swims right around them. Galen is worried on the beach as he watches the shark approach them. Galen gives Virdon his knife to cut Gahto free from the raft. Gahto is still breathing. Somebody had put him on the outward tide deliberately. Gahto regains consciousness and Virdon and Burke carry him to a cave just off the beach. Galen gathers their things and brings it along. Virdon and Burke question Gahto about who he is and where he came from. The man states that he is dead because the gods have willed it . He tells them his real name was Gahto. They notice he has some type of ID band bracelet around his arm put there permanently for life. Galen recognizes it as a Band of an Enforced Labour Camp. Galen says he will be killed if he is found wandering away from a permitted area where these humans must stay near the Labour Center. This is a method used to keep the humans from straying. Gahto continues to state that he is dead and Galen says if he wants to be dead than he should be allowed to die. He says some humans would be better off dead than face their current situations. Virdon tells Galen to watch over Gahto in the cave while Virdon and Burke scout the area. Down the beach a bunch of humans in shorts with pitchforks are hunting for fish and filling a bucket. Gorilla guards watch over the humans and also warn humans of sharks. A shark approaches one middle aged fisherman who is further out in the sea. The gorilla soldier fires his gun repeatedly at the shark but misses. Virdon and Burke watch from the top of a cliff. Burke jokes that if this is Paradise Cove then they’ve sure made a lot of changes. They notice the human fishermen wearing the same bracelets as Gahto. A gorilla soldier catches Burke and Virdon and takes them off to the Labour Center. The gorilla soldier takes Virdon and Burke through the village. Many female humans stand around in the center and then follow them. The guard leaves them to wait in the middle of the village. Virdon and Burke ask the humans if they know Gahto but all the humans turn away and pretend to ignore them. The gorilla soldier tells Hurton, the main prefect ape of the village, about finding these two stray humans who are probably out to steal fish. The soldier brings Virdon and Burke in to be questioned by Hurton who then accuses them of stealing fish. Hurton says if they are no good for fishing than take them out and kill them. Burke jumps in angrily and says that they are two of the best fishermen in this part of the world. Virdon says they are not wearing bracelets because they were farmers just released from a big farm inland. Burke says they have been practising cause all they ever wanted to do was fish. They lost their release papers while fishing. The prefect says they will test them by having them swim under fire with a sheet of flames within the water. Hurton says that having these two humans at their prime will please Bandor as it will help meet their quotas. Hurton orders the guard to not feed Virdon and Burke before their test with the fire tomorrow. One of the best human fisherman goes swimming under flames of fire. He makes it and the other humans cheer. Virdon is given a spear. A gorilla soldier shoots at him which gives him the signal to go out in the water. Virdon takes a deep breath and plunges himself under the flames and makes it to the other end. The humans cheer on and Hurton looks pleased. It is now Burke’s turn to swim under the flames in the water. As he succeeds by swimming under the flames and coming up out of the water at the other side the humans on the shore cheer on. Both Virdon and Burke achieved catching a fish each on their spears. They are taken back to Hurton who then tells another ape that Bandor will want to raise the quota. Hurton thinks that Bandor will try to make him squirm. Bandor had wanted his own nephew to take over the village instead but now Hurton is feeling confident about facing Bandor tomorrow. Hurton says that Virdon and Burke can stay in the hut of the oldest guarded fisherman. Galen runs in angrily and tells Virdon and Burke not to run off again and to come with him. Galen and the prefect go inside to talk. Galen’s calls himself Zooma and says that he is on an expedition from Central City and his two humans got away. Zooma says he will take the two humans and be on his way. Hurton thinks this is all very irregular and says that they cannot leave. Hurton states that only the gods of the sea can determine their fate. Zooma questions about these gods that Hurton says the gods are the sharks. Three sharks are seen swimming in the ocean. Gorillas lead the humans down to the beach. Galen says he does not want the humans fed to the sharks but Hurton says it must go on. Zooma goes to talk to them and sneaks his knife to Virdon. Virdon and Burke are ordered into the water. Hurton, Zooma, the gorilla guards and two dozen humans watch Virdon and Burke swim out to sea. A shark approaches. Burke and Virdon swim low and wait for the shark to come. They wrestle it and use the knife to wound it and then they climb on its back. Virdon and Burke resurface riding on the back of the shark. All of those watching on the shore notice Virdon and Burke’s survival and the humans cheer. The human fishermen all run out to see the dead shark. Zooma states to Hurton that he can now take Virdon and Burke and leave. Hurton is not sure about that. A gorilla soldier races up to the prefect to tell him about finding an empty raft that was Gahto’s. Hurton says this is sacrilege and whoever did this must be punished. Gahto’s daughter Soma overhears and says to Romar that she knew her father was alive. Hurton says if the old man Gahto lives then someone must die. Back in the village fishermen with spears wander by as Burke and Virdon are kept inside a hut. Galen comes in and they all have a chat on what they should do to escape and how to deal with Bandor who is arriving tomorrow. Bandor is in charge of many of the producing areas and he presides over the banding of the fisherman ceremony. Virdon questions Galen whether he has ties with Hurton and might be able to set them free. Galen says he is more concerned that Hurton’s patrols do not find Gahto in the cave or Virdon and Burke will be killed immediately. A gorilla soldier comes in and orders Virdon and Burke to go out fishing. Back at the ocean Virdon and Burke are out fishing with the other humans. Gorilla soldiers fire guns at sharks. They drop their latest catch into a basket of fish. Virdon notices rope but the gorilla soldier orders them back to work. Back in the hut Galen tells Virdon and Burke what Hurton has said. Gahto’s daughter Soma comes in. She says her husband Romar is afraid they will both die. Virdon tells her that they have hid Gahto in a cave. Galen takes her for a walk out of the village towards the cave. Romar, the husband of Soma, sneaks out of his hut and goes to Virdon and Burke’s hut looking for his wife Soma. Virdon says she is ok and that she has gone to see her father. Romar is screaming and he leaves in rage. He is shot in the arm by a gorilla soldier. Virdon and Burke come out of their hut to give aid to Romar’s arm. Romar says he will fail the test tomorrow and be put to death because he will not be able to swim now with his injured arm. Virdon and Burke are fishing and two ape Drayman in charge of the fish wagon complain that the ropes are missing. Humans continue to fish. Late at night Virdon and Burke are cooking fish in their hut and working on the rope they stole to make a net. The next day Burke rings a huge gong drum which draws Hurton, Bandor and all the gorilla soldiers to the beach where they find Virdon and Burke working out at sea. Galen sends Gahto out to pretend he is in charge of the fishnet. Virdon and Burke explain to Bandor that they can now catch more fish with one net than the humans can collect in an entire month. This way the elderly humans do not need to fish anymore and can live in peace. Hurton tells Bandor it was part of his surprise plan all along. Zooma (Galen), explains that Hurton saved Gahto so that he could teach the other humans on how to make these nets. Zooma asks Bandor to hold the rope tight while Zooma holds the other end on the fishing raft while Virdon and Burke push it out to sea. On the beach everyone watches wondering what they are up to. Burke tells Galen to grab a paddle to help them escape. Barton tells the gorillas to shoot but its too late as the raft makes it way around the rocks and disappears. Later back on shore Virdon, Burke and Galen light-heartedly play on the beach running and laughing.

  • ZOOMA - Alias for Galen, the renegade chimpanzee. Name made up to disguise his real name when speaking to Hurton about being the owner of the two human slaves Virdon and Burke. Galen notices that Virdon and Burke have been taken captive by Hurton so Galen runs into the village angrily and tells Virdon and Burke not to run off again and to come with him. Galen and Hurton go inside to talk. Galen’s calls himself Zooma and says that he is on an expedition from Central City and his two humans got away.

Gahto’s daughter Soma overhears and says to Romar that she knew her father was alive. Hurton says if the old man Gahto lives then someone must die. Galen rushes back to the cave where he left Gahto near dead. However Gahto is now aimlessly wandering on the beach out to the ocean. Galen screams out for Gahto and finds him and drags him back to the cave. Galen is quite frustrated with him. Later back in the village Hurton complains to Zooma about how Bandor raises the quota every year. Zooma says that the humans are liars and that they will try to escape. Hurton says that Bandor will decide the fate of Virdon and Burke. Back in the hut Galen tells Virdon and Burke what Hurton has said. Gahto’s daughter Soma comes in. She says her husband Romar is afraid they will both die. Virdon tells her that they have hid Gahto in a cave. Galen takes her for a walk out of the village towards the cave. The next day Galen brings Soma and Gahto towards the beach.
