Plot

As the team met aboard the plane, a tired Riya revealed that her and Anthony's children, Raj and Charlotte, would be staying with them for a while as Suniva was unable to look after them. The team then arrived in Nuuk, prompting Connor and the pair to share a drink in the local coffee shop. While drinking, the pair heard word of a crashed boat off the coast. Once the duo arrived on the scene, they found the body of sailor Argeir Elbergsson, who they had last encountered in Iceland, with his organs removed. The pair first suspected fisherman Bryce Dalila, young actress Fleur Fletcher and barista Eugene Montana before learning that a diver was raiding Argeir's boat from Anya.

The pair then found diver Robyn Owens raiding the boat. Robyn insisted that Argeir kept valuables aboard the boat and that she needed them to sell them so she could pay for her mother's medical bills. Afterwards, they investigated Argeir's cabin and suspected camerawoman Isabel McKenzie. They were then informed that Spencer had spotted Fleur burning objects outside the coffee shop. Upon confrontation, Fleur confessed that she was burning letters where Argeir was demanding she sleep with him. Finally, they arrested Bryce for the murder.

When confronted with the evidence, Bryce confessed to the murder, admitting that he was only looking out for Fleur. Bryce confessed that he and Argeir were close friends and would often visit each other's boats for drinks of beer and socialising. On the day of the murder, Bryce came over to Argeir's boat and found a pile of letters he'd written to Fleur. Seeing the letters where Argeir had pressured Fleur into sleeping with him, Bryce confronted his friend who laughed at him and told him that he deserved Fleur. With tensions running high, the pair started fighting, prompting Bryce to grab a nearby fish hook and slice Argeir open to protect Fleur and end the fight. He then crashed the boat into a nearby iceberg to help destroy the evidence. In court, Bryce pleaded guilty to his crimes and was sentenced to twenty-two years in prison by Judge Armstrong.

Post-trial, Penelope and Ivan Spiros requested the player's help in finding a letter to social services as they planned to adopt after the IVF treatment failed. After a while, the trio found the letter and sent it to Spencer who was able to improve the letter. Spencer then gave the improved letter to to the couple, prompting Penelope to thank and hug him.

Meanwhile, Bradley and the player searched around town for more evidence into the disappearances. Eventually, they found a tree stump with the phrase "it's always watching" carved into it. After examining the symbols on the stump, they discovered that Sister Edna was behind the carving. Upon confrontation, Edna revealed that there was evil in the woods of the region, which locals had dubbed "The Watcher in the Woods". When asked who the watcher was, Edna started wringing her hair, insisting that "the Watcher" wasn't a who but a thing, a force of evil preying on people in the woods. Edna then revealed that it all started in Sisimiut where "the Watcher" slayed their first victim. Back on the plane, the team decided to head to Sisimiut to investigate "the Watcher" further.

Meanwhile, in the heart of the woods, Connor walked along a woodland path. Upon feeling light headed, Connor stopped and sat down. Suddenly, a shadow rose across an old tree in the distance, prompting Connor to shine a torch on it. When Connor called out for them to show themselves, the leaves started rustling and a figure stepped out from the shadows. Connor was soon shocked by what he saw and demanded it stop moving. Before he could do anything, the thing pounced and attacked Connor, knocking him onto the floor. His screams were soon cut short as the birds in the trees scattered...
