The Narrator gives an ecology lecture, but to make things more interesting they use Marly, Vanessa, Steven, and Ezekiel to portray the ecological concept of succession, or how an ecosystem gains complexity. We see a forest grow between these four people. Their relationship deepens, secrets come out. Things get too deep. Just like in Yellowstone, a devastation occurs, but just like with forests, regrowth is possible after destruction.
