Hauser discovers that Ilona is a spy from the Ocean Planet when she walks in on her making a report back to Malakat. Realising its potential for good, Neri retrieves the ankh back to her island. Hauser tells Cass and Winston about Ilona and asks for their help in 'understanding' the aliens. Mera locates a hidden passage in her cell inside the pyramid which gives her access to a source of water.

Feeling the need to do something, Shersheba takes a vial of the red virus and released it into the ocean.'
