Nikki starts investigating the mystery behind ET’s death. But can she handle the truth when Hammersley rescues an old enemy following a bizarre diving accident? Spider befriends a young boy who is being used as the diver on an illegal fishing boat and goes out of his way to help when he finds out the boy is in fact, a child slave. Swain has to put aside his personal feelings and work with Campbell Fulton when the young boy starts showing signs of the Bends, decompression sickness, and the only way to save him is with a second dive.
