***END TRANSMISSION***

In the depths of the Reflecting Pool, our operatives are shown both what they need to see, and their fears made manifest. As they traverse their personal hells, the operatives are made aware of some of the Lake's mysterious workings, and variously come to meet its custodian, the Witch once known as Hailee Pennington.

With sorrow, with heroism, and with cowardice, the operatives pass through the trials of the Lake, and surface in the world, wiser and more worn.

After warding off Jeremy Stockton and his sycophants, the gang come clean about the strange experiences they've had recently, and Hailee and Samson have it out over their differences in philosophy.
