Sean an Leigh are in the scarab off of Maui investigating a new man-made reef
that is being put in to lure additional tourists. Neither of them is happy with this new development because it has causes
a shift in the rip patterns. Nick, a surfer, is also concerned and, for some reason isn't feeling quite well. His brother
Joew is surfing and toumstones. Sean and Leigh quickly jump into action and bring Joe to the beach. He is unconscious and
nick is nearly hysterical. Sean and Leigh try to get him to wait for the ambulance, but he's too caught up in trying to save
his brother. The ambulance arrives and Nick hops in to go to the hospital.
In the hospital, Joe is fine but Nick turns out to have pneumonia. Sean and
Leigh begin to suspect that there is something wrong with the materials that are being used to create the new reef. To complicate
matters, Sam Parks has come back. Sean definately does not trust Sam, and Leigh is loathe to tell him the truth about Sam's
status as a Navy Intelligence Officer. Because she and Sam are getting serious, the Navy has requested that Leigh get a security
clearance. Remembering what happened after her father died, and all the red tape she and her mother had to go through, Leigh
is hesitant about getting the clearance and begins to doubt her relationship to Sam. To make matters worse, Sam warnsher and
Sean to stop snooping around the artificial reef. Sean and Leigh, though, know that something is up, so they take a look at
the material being used to create the reef. Sure enough, the containers, labeled "Black Construction," are leaking. Tey go
to visit "Black Construction" and learn from its nervous owner, that they only supply the empty containers. The containers
themselves are delivered to "Vaughn International." They sneak into a warehouse to examine one of the containers. Unknown
to them, Sam is investigating Vaughn International, both Sean and Leigh are bashed on the back of the head by Vaughn, the
evil owner of the Coropration.
Before Sean and Leigh know what has happened, they are chained inside a cleaning
chamber used to wash out the containers. The room is slowly being filled with sea water. Vaughn tell them that were correct.
He is dumping toxins into the water and there is no way anyone will ever catch him. Particularly since the two of them will
be victims of an unfortunate drowning accident. With that, he leaves.
Sam meanwhile, is worried because Vaughn had not shown up for his meeting.
He heads for the factory. Sensing doom is near, Sean finally give in to their feelings for each other and share a furtive
kiss. This sparks Sean into diving under to continue trying to break the chain loose. They hear someone knocking on the outside.
It is Sam. He opens the top to the cleaning chamber just as Sean succeeds in breaking the chain holding Leigh. Sam brings
her to safety. Sean can no longer get a breath. The water has risen too high. Sam dives down, armed with a hammer, and succeeds
in breaking Sean's chain. He and Leigh work frantically bring the unconscious Sean back. Finally, he sputters and comes to.
It turns out that Sam has been investigatin Vaughn International for some time. Sean and Leigh realize they should not have
interfered at the level they did.nBut also know that had they known the truth, they would have probably done the same thing.
Sean ultimately decides that Sam is a good guy after all and he should let Leigh find her happiness with him.
Meanwhile, Zack is in trouble. He had taken Brian's paddle out of his
car to try it out. And then had brolen it! He enlists Jason's help in getting Brian a new one. At first, Jason doesn't want
to betray Brian. But he knew how much trouble Zack will be in if he doesn't help. The two go to Auntie Jackson, who knows
whree they can get a similar paddle. The only problem is that it is custom made and costs $750. However, if Zack and Jason
are willing to help her, shw can get the price knocked down by half. The two needed to perform in grass skirts in front of
some women. And then listen to a local moke who likes show tunes. In the end, it turns out that Brian knew they lost his paddle
and was just trying to teach them a lesson. It doesn't matter, he likes the new one they had to get him, especially since
his old one was just a run of the mill one from the local sporting goods store. My Score: 2
