As Deke, his son Jackie Jensen, Schmitty, and Harry are fishing on Deke's boat, they catch a Humanoid in their net. They are trying to relieve pressure off of the boat when Jackie is knocked into the water and dragged to his death by the Humanoid. As Schmitty is running with a flare gun on the deck he trips and fires it into the ground which ignites the gasoline Jackie had spilled and the boat explodes killing Deke, Schmitty and Harry. Jim sees Deke's boat explode and has Tommy call the Coast Guard. Later at home, Jim is playing with the Hill Baby while he and Carol Hill talk to Hank the Sheriff about the explosion of Deke's boat.
