The Silent Sea Episode 3 Review
The Silent sea episode 3 starts with a flashback when Mr. Kim tells Dr. Song Jian about the data storage on the floor. There are so many theories and clues relating to the the Luna, Data storage and the cause of death of the crew members.
In the silent sea season 1 episode 3, we see Song Jian running around the station to find answers to her doubts. Han Yunjae asks her if she knows where Lee Gisu is as he isn’t responding to his radio — he wants her to rejoin him immediately and warns her not to act independently. Meanwhile, Lee Gisu finds a capsule with the sample inside. As for Gong Soochan — the infection that is troubling him appears to worsen.
As soon as Song Jian finds Lee Gisu, a strange objects attacks him. She quickly enters to find out what was really happening in there. Something holds Lee Gisu up high choking him to death. He later falls hard on the floor with blood oozing out of his temple, he dies suddenly. Song Jian sees a creature holding a sample that Lee Gisu had picked up already. Doc Hong explains that Lee Gisu died from an immediate spine fracture — she does not believe the impact from the fall would have been enough to kill him, which puts Song Jian’s story under suspicion for the captain.
While this is going on, Soochan’s infection continues to spread. He profusely vomits water all over the floor, unable to stop, as the remaining crew not hunting for the strange creature are lost for words. Dr Hong comes racing into the main hub area, grabbing towels and hazmat suits to try and stop the flow of water.
Despite puncturing the lung and attempting to clear out the water, it’s no good and it soon spurts frantically into the air like a fountain. As Soochan looks over at the glass, he loses consciousness and dies. Just like all the others, he finds himself drowning.
When Jian finds out, she speaks in confident to Dr Hong about the hidden files that are located somewhere in the station. When Captain Han shows up, she immediately straightens and decides to do an autopsy after all. They need to figure out what killed Soochan and the others before it’s too late.
Part of that investigation comes from sifting through the Balhae medical records but they all seem to be locked. It looks like they need to handle this the old fashioned way, and that includes gathering tissue samples from as many deceased bodies as possible to work out when the infection started.
Meanwhile Captain Han heads into the vents and begins searching for the creature feels have ripped up their friend. Captain Han and a few of his colleagues check the scanner and notice the reading fast approaching. However, it appears to be in another part of the facility as it passes right over them.
When Jian returns to the main group, she confirms that all the other bodies have the same cause of death. This, coupled with Dr Hong’s autopsy, confirm that the infection occurred from the inside out. Only, strangely all the crew were in perfect health when they died, with no virus or bacteria to speak of. Soochan’s blood is also completely discolored but appears to hold a separate layer of something unrecognizable.
Jian reflects back on the creature she encountered and realizes that this thing may well be more complicated than they first thought. Could it be a surviving crew member? She certainly thinks so and believes if this man or woman rationed their food and water, it’s possible they survived.
