Ruby awoke to find herself inside of a metal locker. After escaping, she finds herself in a barren room
performing some electrical repairs opens a section of the wall to reveal that the room is underwater.
She then heads down a ladder and meets Tom, who is trapped behind a wall grate.
Tom has a sculpture of random tools we need, but is unwilling to show it to Ruby, as she accidentally insults him. As an apology, she feeds him fish
She also opens a floor hatch to trade items with Tom. With teamwork, they open up the closet in the Z-Hatch room.
The Bear Zombie inside attacks Ruby, who manages to escape far enough for Tom to sever its head.
After a little more puzzle-solving, Ruby finally frees Tom from his cell.
Tom's MANLY PHYSIQUE allows him to move a barrel,removing the water from the door in the locker room, opening the way into the monitor room.
They obtain the EYE DIAL, and then explore the Z-Hatch room once more. Tom moves the couch, revealing a secret passage that is only large enough for Ruby to fit through.
Ruby finds a severed hand in the hidden room, and sends it through a pneumatic chute for completely inexplicable reasons. The room also contains a dispenser full of an unknown purple liquid.
After some experimentation with the purple acid, blood samples, and an analyzer in the room, it is unclear as to what the analyzer does.
Testing blood from the head of the zombie is impossible, as the head seems to have disappeared. However, once this is discovered, Tom reveals that he is not feeling so hot. He begins vomiting blood.
Ruby quickly scrambles around, using the analyzer to discover that Tom had arsenic poisoning from the fish, and that she could acquire an antidote if she turned the power back on.
While running around to find a way to get the power going, Ruby finds a hook and does a pirate impression to cheer up Tom. He smiles weakly.
Eventually, Ruby gets the electricity and Tom's antidote. However, this locks her in the back room, and a strange gas filling the room from the ventilation.
Panicking, Ruby break the glass of the pneumatic chute. This helps only slightly.
She then breaks the glass of the mirrored window along the back of the room, and finds the Hound monster on the other side.
After brief scuffle, Ruby uses her mean left hook to defeat the abomination by flinging it through the glass acid dispenser and into the circuit board, but suffers a scratch to her head in the process.
The impact of the monster on the circuit board powers down the room, and Ruby flees with the antidote, running to where she left Tom.
Along the way, she begins to feel faint, but manage to make it to the Brig. Unfortunately, she find Tom is gone, and in his place is a great deal of blood.
