Alyssa tries to make contact with the monster by touch and an acid burns her skin.
Liam bursts into Primus’s room and confronts him. Flynn uses a power word to return the tentacle monster to its true form, which is a cloud of black oily smoke. Alyssa makes contact and finds that it’s after Silas. Liam finds that Silas has managed to be pulled underneath the ship, and is presumably drowning. Flynn and Slania dive into the water.
