Episode 6: The Capture

Maddie the Yeerk sympathizer is so excited, because in The Capture, Jake bonds (in a literal sense) with a Yeerk! Jake also…*checks notes* kills several Yeerks. Meanwhile, Lydia’s got some things to say about roach motels (don’t use them) and speculative science. What’s the evolutionary history of the Yeerk homeworld? Are the Yeerks performing a version of photosynthesis, or are they eating radiation? And who’s that mysterious eyeball!? Spoilers for all of Animorphs.
