Synopsis for "Dark Waters"

The Challengers of the Unknown comfort an old woman whose grandson has disappeared while working on an oil rig. The team visits and Brenda suspects that something is amiss. She and Kenn notices that everyone on the rig acts suspiciously, none of them have facial hair or Adam's apples, and all are dressed in several layers of clothing; they suspect some cult is running the rig.

On the mainland, Clay and Marlon interrogate the CEO who pulls a gun on them and warns that Kolkothak is coming before suffering a massive heart attack.

Back at the rig, the cult have thrown Kenn into the ocean and dragged Brenda to the center of a ritual circle, where it is revealed that they are all women: Kolkothak will only save females and has tranformed the men into women to usher in a new age. They are going to awaken the elder god from his five billion year slumber in the ocean depths. It appears and lashes out violently, killing the cult members with its tentacles.

Kenn draws its attention and gets it covered in oil and Brenda fires a flare, igniting the beast. The duo dive into the ocean to save themselves just as the other Challengers arrive in a helicopter to fish them from the water.
