Synopsis: After discovering that Taylor is more than what he seems, Zira takes him into her private office. She gives Taylor a pad and pencil and begins questioning him. Cornelius is still not convinced that Taylor is gifted with any more intellect beyond that of clever mimicry. Taylor gives details of where he came from and points out on a map where his ship landed. The interviewing process is cut short by the abrupt arrival of Dr. Zaius. Taylor is returned to his cage.
Some time later, a gorilla arrives to escort Taylor out of the hospital. He tells Julius that the city intends to geld him (under orders from Dr. Zaius). Upon hearing this, Taylor breaks free from his cage, knocking Julius down.
He begins racing throughout the streets of Ape City scaring pedestrians and small children. The gorilla forces are alerted to his escape and begin hunting him down. Taylor deftly avoids the gorillas' snares and runs into a natural history museum. He is horrified when he finds that Dodge's head has been removed and mounted on a wall of the museum.
Taylor runs out of the museum and races through the streets. As he runs beneath a bridge, pair of gorillas throw nets down on top of him, trapping him. Others race over and begin beating him with clubs. Taylor's throat injury has healed enough now so that he can speak. He snarls, "Get your filthy paws off me you damn dirty ape!" The apes look at him astonished to hear a speaking human.
Synopsis: Alexander and Jason continue their flight through the subterranean mutant caverns in search of the missing Lawgiver – the only ape that can clear Jason’s name. A squad of Brutus' renegade gorilla soldiers closes in on them, but they manage to divert their course into the path of a gang of angry mutant drones. While ape battles mutant, the two refugees sneak off further into the tunnels.
Another throng of mutants manages to corner them, but Jason succeeds in grabbing one of their scorch weapons. They blast their way past several mutant guards until they find an abandoned railcar.
An elite unit of mutants known as the Inheritors stops the car and capture Jason and Alexander. They bring them to the Gestalt Chamber where they encounter the Inheritor leader – a collective consciousness constructed of three disembodied brains. The Inheritor tri-brain sentences them for execution in a battle arena.
In the pit arena, Jason and Alexander find another prisoner – one of Brutus' renegade gorilla soldiers. All three are forced to team-up in order to fight up against several horrific monsters.
Escaping from the pit, the three fight through several more drones until they come to the prison cell of the Lawgiver. Jason frees the Lawgiver who tells them of a tunnel that will lead them to a sky-ship. They find a futuristic hover-ship and miraculously discover how to operate it. As more mutant drones converge on their position, Jason, Alexander and the Lawgiver rocket their way to freedom.
