Bytownite and Cafetite insist on investigating the man who resembled a “Mioroan.” Stanislaus has a bit of a rant.
Stanislaus is most upset with Misty (what else is new). Natividad, Xylona and Sapphira return to the DOG headquarters.
The stranger who seems to know about “Oceanshadow” leaves abruptly. Misty returns home, unbeknownst to everyone in general.
Natividad, Xylona and Sapphira find out a little more about the “goo” from a mysterious stranger… who is P. rude, particularly in Natividad’s eyes.
Misty struggles to recover after being ambushed by Gloucester. Miritz is upset by the results of Britz’s tests on the Crystal Tree. Natividad, Sapphira and Xylona try to heal another victim of the ‘sludge’.
Misty Junior is displeased to be the last to know about Misty being kicked out. Misty is already beginning another mission of his own.
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.
Xylona and Sapphira don’t achieve much. Meanwhile, the two girls Shannon ran into appear in the DOG headquarters.
Shannon and Stokes manage to evade Stanislaus’ wrath, much to his displeasure. Sapphira and Xylona locate Faust.
