The next day, Neri and Kal are on ORCA, but when asked to pinpoint the landing area of the Synchronium, Kal says he cannot. Kal tells Neri he is going back to the island to have a swim and think about problem but he instead goes to see Dr. Hellegren to tell him about the new piece. Hellegren isn't anxious to sent UBRI forces after it, instead preferring to let the kids find it and then take all the pieces at once after Kal discovers where they are hidden. Lena does her best to pinpoint the location of the Synchronium, but must use more of HELEN's resources to do so. Unfortunately an earthquake hits at that moment and the Commander quickly discovers the extra strain on HELEN when he is unable to access HELEN. As punishment for their actions, Lena, Cass, Brett, and Benny are assigned to clean-up detail-with Morgan as their supervisor. Neri ventures into the outback on her own to recover the Synchronium but succumbs to the heat. She is found by an aboriginal girl who takes her back to her family's campsite. There she is told a story about a water spirit who crashed to earth creating the water hole before them. Realising what the story means, Neri dives to the bottom of the water hole and finds the piece of the Synchronium. Finished with their clean-up duty, Cass takes out her frustrations on Morgan. Neri, exhausted from her walk back to the shore and her swim to the island, is met on the island by her friends. That night, as Neri sleeps, a spaceship lands on the island-Mera has returned to help her sister.
