Plot

Following the discovery of "the Watcher", the team headed to Sisimiut to investigate. Upon arrival, the team soon noticed that Connor wasn't with them, prompting Anya to step up as the GPA's temporary Chief until Connor returned. The player and Bradley then headed into town where they found camerawoman Isabel McKenzie with an icicle stabbed through her throat. The pair first questioned Inuit man Tikaani, gothic photographer and Judge Armstrong's daughter, Luna Armstrong, and lumberjack Kris Reynolds. They were then approached by investigative journalist Anastasia Gardenia, who insisted that she had information regarding Isabel.

Anastasia revealed that she and Isabel were working together to investigate the disappearances, saying that they were supposed to meet by the Kangerluarsunnguaq Bay as Isabel had a lead. After searching the bay, they suspected single mother Christina Carson. They then learned that Kris was threatening Spencer with an axe. The pair raced to the scene where they found Kris brandishing an axe at Spencer. Bradley quickly calmed them down before Kris explained that Spencer was just like Isabel, always going on about they should save the trees instead of cut them down. They then investigated further and incriminated Kris for the murder.

When confronted, Kris confessed quickly, saying he was tired of carrying the burden of the deaths. When asked what he meant, Kris revealed that he and his co-worker went out for their shift a few days ago. However, Kris ignored the safety precautions and the tree came down incorrectly, crushing his co-worker. Panicked and scared of the repercussions, Kris buried his co-worker in the woods but was spotted by Isabel who was searching the woods for her and Anastasia's investigation. A few days later, Isabel confronted Kris and told him to do the right thing and confess otherwise she'd turn him into the police. Fearful of arrest, Kris panicked and snapped an icicle off a nearby house and stabbed Isabel through the throat with it. At his trial, he was sentenced to forty years in prison by Judge Armstrong.

Post-trial, Christina begged for the player's help, insisting that her son had ran off and that she couldn't find him. Christina told them she had last seen him in the bay, prompting them to head there. Soon, they found Christina's son, Oscar, with Penelope. Penelope revealed that she'd spotted Oscar on his lonesome and helped look after him. Christina then thanked Penelope for her help and reunited with her son.

Meanwhile, the team spoke to Anastasia about the investigation who told them that Isabel's lead would likely be in her bag, and suggested searching the site of the murder again. After finding Isabel's bag in the snow, they searched through it and found an incomplete manuscript on "the Watcher". Imran analysed the manuscript and identified it as the work of author Naomi Harris, with Imran revealing that he was a big fan of her work.

The team then reconvened where they spoke about how Connor was still missing. Takagi then told them that she'd tracked Connor's phone to the woods outside Nuuk, leading the team to believe he'd been taken by "the Watcher". With this reveal, Anya decided that they needed to know more about "the Watcher", telling the team to set a course to Vancouver, where Naomi Harris lived, to learn more.
