Some of the French, however, reveal themselves as soldiers and a fight ensues in the station. During the course of the battle, Mother loses her left leg to a killer whale in the diving pool, and Samurai is badly injured. Schofield decides to send a team down to find an object below the ice where the diving team was going to, and one of the scientists, Sarah Hensleigh , requests to go as well. While trying to figure out who killed Samurai, Schofield confides in Mother his worry that there may be a traitor in the unit, recalling an incident a few years earlier where a fellow Marine, Andrew Trent , was apparently killed by traitors in his own unit.
Mother reminds Schofield that one of the scientists, James Renshaw , was locked in his room after apparently killing one of his fellow scientists before their arrival.
Watching a video of Schofield being shot, they see the attack, what appears to be a giant, mutated elephant seal about to eat him, and soon discover it to be Snake that tried to kill him.

Montana succeeds at killing Santa Cruz and wounds Gant, only to be eaten by another mutated Elephant seal. Schofield then learns from a fellow Marine, Romeo, that U.
Escaping to the cavern with Renshaw, Kirsty and her pet fur seal Wendy , they are attacked by more Elephant seals, though Schofield manages to kill the bull. While taking refuge, Schofield realises Hensleigh herself is an ICG agent, but before she can kill Schofield, she is killed by the wounded Gant.
