Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Reveals Its Best Friendship In a Deadly Arc
Season 3 of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous reveals the show's best friendship, which unfolds in a deadly arc thanks to the poisonous Scorpios Rex.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for the third season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, now streaming on Netflix.
At the heart of Netflix's Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is friendship. Fans saw it with Darius and his deceased dad, and that's now spread to Darius and Ben bonding as they face mortality together on Isla Nublar. They've been through thick and thin, and while a lot of the series focused on them, Season 3 confirms the best friendship is actually between Yaz and Sammy.
It's been building for some time, as early on Sammy was trying hard to be Yaz's friend. That quickly switched to Sammy and Kenji flirting, but she still couldn't stay away from Yaz, despite their different personalities, with Yaz being sporty and intense while Sammy's optimistic and goofy.
They've come a long way from the revelation in Season 1 that Sammy was a spy sent to garner intel to sell to rivals of InGen to pull her family out of debt, but no one expected the season to go this way when Sammy is poisoned by the Scorpios Rex in an attack. To make it worse, Bumpy has fled, so their dino-protection is gone.
However, Brooklynn recalls seeing a video at Dr. Wu's lab where he was poisoned too in an ambush. She remembers where they have a cure, so Yaz takes that info and heads out. She doesn't want anyone to slow her down, but what she doesn't tell the rest is she can't afford to lose Sammy, who's like her sister.
She wouldn't admit it, but as her memories indicate, Sammy's selfless attitude has rubbed off on Yaz. She was afraid to show a vulnerable side, but now Yaz is finally ready. After almost losing Ben too, she can't handle another hit like this so using her track skills, speed, agility and flexibility, she evades raptors and other beasts as she slips in and out the lab.
She's a veritable super-soldier, jumping over babbling brooks and whatnot, which leads to her ankle getting injured. It culminates in a race with the Scorpios, but thanks to Ben and Darius distracting it with an explosion, she gets back in time to save her friend. It's a horrific moment, as it seems like Sammy dies, but thankfully, she comes to and realizes Yaz really does love her. More so, as they embrace this wholesome bond, it proves Yaz won't ever give up on Sammy, which is what Darius did when all evidence pointed to Ben being dead.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous stars Paul-Mikél Williams as Darius, Jenna Ortega as Brooklynn, Ryan Potter as Kenji, Raini Rodriguez as Sammy, Sean Giambrone as Ben and Kausar Mohammed as Yaz. Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix.
