Bytownite and Cafetite insist on investigating the man who resembled a “Mioroan.” Stanislaus has a bit of a rant.
Things don’t go too smoothly for the group sent to take Catriona home.
Stanislaus is still not liking the idea of Bytownite and Cafetite sticking around. Misty makes it clear his problem is with a different person.
Gladlie and Natividad show up completely unannounced to try and help with the whole “black sludge” situation. Though Natividad really only provides her two cents on what the sludge actually is.
The goo has another “host” – and apparently Bytownite knows them. Stanislaus again jumps to conclusions.
Stanislaus returns to the house to find a distraught Misty and a whole lot of water.
Stanislaus and Bytownite attack Stokes. While it doesn’t end badly, it doesn’t end too well either.
Elli brings Stanislaus, Winaria and Bytownite to the place where Stokes appeared. And he appears again.
Elli informs Stanislaus and Winaria of the situation. Bytownite wants to be involved in their investigations.
Misty manages to open the bottle. Winaria disagrees with Stanislaus as before.
