Super Dinosaur - Battle Shock

Earthcore's plans on reopening the gate to Inner Earth doesn't go as planned thanks to General Casey's (Dean Redman) prankster son Elliot (Tevon Herbert) who sneaks aboard the Dynamo Dome to wreak havoc, not realizing that he's putting everyone in serious danger. In the kind of coincidence you are likely to find in a 20-minute cartoon, Super Dinosaur's (Mac Heywood) fear of spiders is introduced and then immediately expanded on when the creature from Inner Earth that sneaks inside the Dome turns out to be a giant spider. The episode does give both Erin (Shannon Chan-Kent) and Erica (Shannon Chan-Kent) larger roles as Erica helps the team keep safe from the security drones Elliot (AKA Battle Shock) unleashes on them, and Erin's knowledge of spider's helps get their unwanted guest home without resorting to violence against the scared creature. As for Inner Earth, thanks to Battle Shock's pranks, any exploration will have to wait.
