An anomaly under water unleashes a creature that might be a much-evolved shark from the future; but killing it doesn't end the problem, since at least one other creature is lurking in the depths, and takes Abby while she is on a boat looking for the thing. This sets off more tension in the team as Connor blames Nick for abandoning the search for Abby and Steven thinks they are looking in the wrong place. Written by Ron Kerrigan <>

Jenny Lewis: Maybe you're right. Maybe we're looking for the creatures in the wrong place. At the very least, it's definitely worth checking out.
Nick Cutter: Hey. As petty-minded bureaucrats go, you're the best.

What await's you under water.
27 July 2009 | by (Belgrade,Serbia) – See all my reviews

Nick, Stephen, Abby and Connor are hunting the waterborne creature in the Themes. But everything really starts when a young footballer gets attacked, and everyone presumes he is dead. During the night search, while everyone is looking in the water with their torch lamps,creature passes beneath them and Jenny Lewis who joined them in this mission falls in. After creature appears above water and stars to move toward Jenny, Abby screams that she must swim back to the boat. In the end just before the creature get's to Jenny, Nick in the second boat rushes in and saves her. There was so much happening in this episode that you really had to pay attention. I am glad that at least in this episode we saw how brave Connor can be. And the scene on the cliff while he holds Abby was definitely the best scene in the episode. After waiting for so long for Connor to express his true feelings for Abby, all I can say it was worth waiting. I am glad that Nick and Stephen, maybe not at first but at the end of the episode were there to play heroes. Also relationship between Caroline and Connor was very predictable. She was pretending to be his girlfriend only to get him to confide in her, but Connor never spoke about his work. So in the end her character was there on goose chase mission doom to failure.
