With the monster purified and returned to human, the team sets about with trying to clear the lake of the supernatural forces tainting it as well as dealing with the signs of motion that Squaddie Daley had seen on the way to their position. However, they are immediately interrupted when Thomas receives a brief vision of men in sharp suits speaking to government officials and images of mobilizing troops.
"Why did you call the army in?" Thomas asks immediately, "We didn't need their help." The distraction is such that his normal quick regeneration seems to be inhibited and his wounds fail to close.
Kasper immediately denies that he called the military and notices Thomas moving over toward the first aid kit and trying to do mundane medicine. Immediately he tells the kid off and sets about giving him proper medical aid and demonstrating a point perfect example of dressing wounds before they return to the problem at hand.
