This article contains spoilers for the ending of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hinges on an ethical question: If you lived in a world where dinosaurs were resurrected but were about to go extinct again, would you save them? If you're Jeff Goldblum's Dr. Ian Malcolm, the answer is: "No! Are you nuts?" But if you're, say, Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire Dearing, it's a little more complicated. Since we last saw her, Claire has become a dino advocate in the wake of a volcano threatening Isla Nublar, and it's an effort to help the creatures that sets off the disaster that inevitably unfolds in Fallen Kingdom.
Of course, we as audience members know: There's no way the last living dinosaurs are going to bite the dust. There's a franchise to consider. So, indeed, the movie ends in full on crisis-mode. But it does present an intriguing "what if" scenario before it gets to that point.
