During the funeral, Harry’s other adopted sister Jen returns from New York, worsening his mental health. This causes Harry to quarrel with an older man. He ends up in jail that night.
He and Dale speak more about what’s happening around the world after he’s been released. To investigate the area where Tom drowned, he also borrows scuba equipment. However, he falls unconscious underwater and awakens on the fishing boat while the electronics are scrambled and an unusual noise is heard.
Jerry is dropped off at the ferry by Harry, who returns home at night. A deer suddenly runs in front of his car. Although Harry can save the deer, a vision of Tom appears in his mind. In the vision, Tom tells Harry to kill the animal. Harry does just that. It concerns Audry to see Harry transform in such a strange and brutal manner. When she goes to the psychologist to discuss Harry, he suggests he may be suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity. He also suggests contacting a former patient of this disorder who experienced very similar phenomena as Harry. This patient has cut himself off from all contact with electronics
As Harry spirals out of control, he begins to act irrationally. He stole a neighbor’s dog and put it on his boat. Then he headed towards the same area on Block Island. Something strange happened. All the objects on the boat, including Harry and the dog, begin to ascend into the sky. When Harry comes back down onto the boat, the dog has gone missing, leaving only its leash behind.
After hearing about the missing dog and this latest episode, Audry is enraged and suspects Harry. She asks Paul to watch Emily and leaves to meet the former patient.
Audry learns the man is paranoid as a result of being watched or influenced by an outside force. He warns her someone might get hurt if she doesn’t rescue Harry from the island.
Audry drives back to the ferry to take the last ferry home, while Harry ignores another vision of his father telling him to take Emily. And he instead goes for a nighttime drive. Narrowly avoiding a female jogger. When he fails to attack the woman, he returns to the house, where Paul is still watching Emily.
After returning to the fishing boat, Audry finds Paul unconscious and hears Emily’s screams as Harry abducts her. Despite managing to get on the vessel just as it leaves the dock, Audry is unable to reason with her psychotic brother, who returns to the scene of the disturbance. Emily and Audry are barricaded inside the boat’s cabin; they soon hear a wailing sound and rattling as objects on the boat start ascending again. Emily and Audry are sent flying off the cabin ceiling and Audry is carried into the sky as the cabin door gives way. The local authorities discover Emily alone in the cabin of the vessel the next morning.
Audry is dropped into the ocean alive and treading water as a voiceover plays from an earlier scene in which she explains why biologists are justified in taking certain fish out of their natural habitat to study.
