Episode Synopsis: Mina and Lucy visit with the old fishermen in the churchyard. Mr. Swales entertains the lot of them with tales of the men whose names are listed on the surrounding tombstones. He says that the men are either lost at sea, and not in their so-called graves, or that the nature of their lives and deaths have been dramatically romanticized. Mina returns to the graveyard in the evening and laments that she hasn’t heard from her fiance, Jonathan, in a month.
Fog has closed in on the Russian schooner, and the ship hasn’t enough manpower to work the sails. They hope to encounter another ship, but none appear. The first mate had gone from angry to despondent.
