Plot

In the aftermath of the reveal that the victims of "the Watcher" were being taken to Juneau, the team raced there to save Connor and end the bloody saga. When the player and Riya arrived, they spotted a trail of blood in the snow and decided to follow it. Eventually, they followed the trail to an ice cave in the mountains, where they found the body of diver Robyn Owens, brutally dismembered. Nia confirmed that Robyn was dismembered with a sharp blade, likely an axe, before her body was moved to the cave. The pair first questioned Sister Edna before suspecting Inuit man Tikaani and barista Eugene Montana. As the pair recapped the investigation, Imran told them that he'd found "the Watcher"'s shack in the woods.

The pair raced to the shack where they suspected gothic photographer Luna Armstrong, investigative journalist Anastasia Gardenia and author Naomi Harris. It was also discovered that Robyn's father had arrested Eugene and that Tikaani believed "the Watcher" was an amarok, a wolf which slays those who hunt at night from Inuit mythology. Anthony then told the team that he'd found Edna's DNA on the sack "the Watcher" used to move the body. Upon confrontation, Edna revealed that she was the killer's accomplice, admitting that it was her job to spread the rumour that "the Watcher" wasn't mortal. After placing Edna in a holding cell, the team set off to work again, eventually unveiling Eugene as the serial killer.

Eugene confessed upon confrontation, saying that everything he did was in the name of avenging his son. Eugene admitted that his son, Nelson, went hiking in the mountains and fell, breaking his leg in the cold. After a while, Eugene believed that something bad had happened and went to the police department to demand they send out a search party. Believing that nothing had happened, the police didn't send out a search party, prompting Eugene to look for Nelson himself, where he found his son dead from hypothermia. Blinded by grief and anger, Eugene blamed the police for not sending out a search party and when he spotted the Sheriff's daughter, he attacked and killed her, leaving her body parts in an ice cave. Following this, Eugene's mind was twisted by grief and he started killing the children of the police force so they would know how it felt to lose a child, creating the legend of "the Watcher" to cover up his crimes. When Connor and the GPA arrived in Eugene's coffee shop, Eugene took the opportunity to drug Connor and later kidnapped him, taking him to the shack. When asked how he got the hallucinogenic drug, Eugene refused to say. For all of his crimes, Judge Armstrong sentenced Eugene to life in Edgewater asylum.

Post-trial, Anastasia recommended that they should head back to Eugene's shack to find out Connor's location, prompting the player and Bradley to head there with her. After searching the place, they found Eugene's journal which they sent to Spencer. Spencer revealed that in amongst Eugene's murder confessions, he'd discovered that Eugene had taken Connor up to the mountain peak. The trio quickly raced there where they found Connor unconscious and tied up, left to die of hypothermia. They quickly sent Connor to GPA medic Raphael Thornton who patched Connor up. After waking up, Connor thanked the team for finding him, as well as revealing that he had offered Anastasia a place on the team as an official informant. Anastasia then accepted the offer cheerfully.

Meanwhile, Riya and the player headed back to the ice cave to tie up any loose ends. After finding a locket in the ice, the pair examined it and discovered it to be a locket of the Owens family. With this new item, Riya and the player visited Robyn's sick mother, Esther, who tearfully accepted the locket, thanking the GPA for everything they'd done. Finally, the team got a call which revealed Eugene wanted to speak to them. Eugene admitted that he'd rethought his refusal to talk about the drug, revealing that he'd been approached after someone figured out his murder spree. He admitted that they offered him the drug and told him to use it, saying that he was a part of something greater.

As the team reconvened on the plane, Connor told the team that they needed to investigate further into the drug handed to Eugene. Takagi then declared that there had been a number of people suffering from hallucinations in Hollywood, prompting the team to set a course to Los Angeles.
