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 and Bytownite attack Stokes. While it doesn’t end badly, it doesn’t end too well either.
Stanislaus demands answers from Stokes.
Elli brings Stanislaus, Winaria and Bytownite to the place where Stokes appeared. And he appears again.
Vercia is placed under Faust’s care. There is an upsetting development at the beach.
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.
Stanislaus is suspicious of Bytownite. Misty and Kiesta enjoy the beach.
First language warning – because Elli casually swears. As do other DOG members, but she does it a bit more.
Vercia and Elli do indeed “bitch about” Stanislaus. A visitor arrives at the DOG house.
