The episode begins and Sam goes for a swim off the island. On the sub, they are alerted to a torpedo in the water. Grace calls to deploy countermeasures. They prepare for impact. The torpedo room is flooded. Captain Chaplin watches as she decides not to surface. He says it's the right call and ends the drill.
