In riposte, a Norwegian is destroyed and the helicopter explodes.

Unable to understand what happened, McNeary and the Doctor Copper leave to the encounter of the Norwegian camp. What they finds there is only death and desolation. They equally discover there a block of half melted ice that seems it had enclosed someone or something...
