Synopsis: In a room with no windows on the eastern coast of Africa, an Englishman, James Moore, is held captive by jihadist fighters. Thousands of miles away in the Greenland Sea, Danielle Flinders prepares to dive in a submersible to the ocean floor. In their confines they are drawn back to the Christmas of the previous year, where a chance encounter on a beach in France led to an intense and enduring romance.

the most common pathways

of energy production

in microorganisms,

who live along the

hydrothermal vents,

are oxidation or reduction

of sulfur compounds.

The most common electron donor

along the vents is

hydrogen sulfide,

making oxidation

of sulfur-containing compounds

the base of the food

web in this environment.

The microorganisms

capable of oxidizing

or reducing sulfur compounds

show amazing diversity.

Over 161 gram-negative

sulfur-oxidizing bacteria species

have been found to inhabit

the hydrothermal vents.

Bacteria in this environment are often

thought of as all being autotrophs,

but of these 161 species,

over 97% are also capable

of heterotrophic growth.

In addition, 37% perform


Furthermore, the sulfate

reducers known to be present,

include at least nine different

genera, including gram-negative...

Yeah, I see.

I understand why.

No, to us it'd make

a huge difference.

She'll be out soon.

You had enough?


While most are rod shaped...

They want us on the boat

now for a team debriefing.

Can I get

in the tank next time?

That's dangerous.

Each suit is designed


for each aquanaut, so...

Thank you, Paul, but you don't

have to indulge her every whim.

Thank you, Paul.

Why do you torture

him like that?

He's too young

to defend himself.

I'll race you.

- No.

- Come on now.

No, I... I...

I don't like you!

Okay, I just want to

go over the order of the dives,

so that you can

communicate with each other

about who can help log,

as some of you will be prepping

and not available to log.

All right?

We start from here,

so Jonas and Ren are up first,

- Lucky you.

- with tienne as the pilot,

for the first dive

in the Cadiz Gulf.

Then we're going to

hug the coastline,

going west of Ireland

and Britain

into the Norwegian Sea.

There, Gustavo and

Maria are next,

with Frank piloting

around the Faroe Island.

Frank, who is also taking

Annie and Mark down,

here near Iceland where

we'll spend the most time,

and do several dives, okay?

It's a complete reversal,

I'm sorry.


And then, our deepest dive,

Thumbs and Dani,

are last, around Jan Mayen,

with tienne as a pilot, okay?

There are definite

advantages in going last.

They're gonna be logging

and not prepping,

and the sub will be tested.

I'm not thinking about that.

Then what's up?

I realized I've never

been lonely before.


Welcome to the planet.

It's possible there's

no service where he is.

He's working in

Northern Kenya, right?

Or he just stopped calling,

stopped being interested.


He's just stuck somewhere

without reception.

For a month.


Why not?




Don't go near him, boy!







The Monk by the Sea is not...

...The Berlin Academy

exhibition of 1810.


What do you got for us?

I have a bona fide source,

willing to give up an

operational bomb unit in Europe.

They want to hit train stations.

Where's the link?

In Southern Somalia.

What's on the

table for the source?

British passport,

we want him.

We found him,

we'll get him.

He's my source,

so I'm going in alone.

Somalia is not a good idea, J.

I know.

Check this out.

We are talking about

bombs all over Europe.

If there's even a chance we can get out

in front of that, we have to take it.
