Sinbad is dozing on the deck and remembering better times with his family. When he wakes up, he goes below decks where the others are discussing their route. Cook suggests they head to Ashanti where nobody asks questions. Something strikes the Providence and water starts leaking in. The crew runs up to the deck but they don't see any indication of what hit the ship. Sinbad ties a rope around his neck and prepares to dive overboard to investigate, even though Cook and Rina warn him not to. Nala sees something moving in the water and they start to pull Sinbad up, but the rope snaps...

Episode Quotes
Roisin: You weren't hard to spot. It was the screaming that really did it.

Sinbad: One night where I don't feel like me. You understand that, Gunnar, right?
Gunnar: Yeah. I even know the right poetry. Life's a bitch and you're cursed.
Sinbad: Thank you.

Cook: Stay away from the water tonight. I don't like how it feels. The thing that stove us in--it's still down there.
Gunnar: He knows how to lift the spirits, doesn't he?

Cook: Oh, that demon's whatever she needs to be. Take human form long enough to harvest every good memory he has. Piece by piece she takes his mind until he is drained. Not a man anymore. An empty shell on the beach. Just the sound of wind in his head.

Emir: You mistake my age for apathy.
Akbari: And you mistake my pain for obsession.

Sinbad: I've spent so long wanting to be anyone but me. So I wouldn't have the pain or the memories. But I wouldn't trade them for a second.
