Nathan and Chief Wuornos are in the police station when Parker's boss, Agent Howard, arrives on the scene. He's looking for Parker for some reason. He wants her to return to Boston - although he manipulated her into going to Haven in "Welcome to Haven". Parker hasn't been reporting in as she promised. So she tells Howard about the weird things that have happened. Parker and Howard wind up sealed inside the boat; Parker is trying to get out, but Howard wants her to talk about her reports.

Easter Eggs and Connections

When Parker is searching Duke's boat, there is the Stephen King book The Tommyknockers prominently on display. King wrote the story, The Colorado Kid, on which the series is based. There also seems to be a reference to The X-Files, when Parker mentions someone that Howard trained who started chasing aliens, and Howard also references The Children of the Corn, another book by Stephen King.
