Episode Summary from syfy.com:
[i]After Duke buries his brother the reality of his loss sets in and he decides to leave Haven for good. All he needs is for local deep-sea diver Jack Driscoll to return his pump and for Jennifer to get her things off the boat. Unfortunately for Duke, fate has other plans and while he’s walking around town he discovers a new Trouble: A force powerful enough to crush cars and people.
Nathan and Audrey are enjoying the opportunity to finally be intimate with each other, but they have to be very carful. If Vince and the rest of The Guard suspect that Audrey is Audrey then they’ll force her to kill Nathan. So, to keep everyone off their scent, they keep up the ruse that Audrey is actually Lexie.
As Nathan and Audrey investigate the mysterious pressure in town they also discover that Vince and Dave have the bends and it’s only Jack’s decompression chamber that can save them. Jennifer immediately suspects that Jack is the Troubled person but everyone waves her off since the Driscoll family has never had the Troubles.
As the pieces fall into place, it turns out that Jennifer is right. He and his brother have developed a Trouble: Whenever they feel stressed they create the pressure of being deep in the ocean all around them. All it takes to overcome is some deep breathing exercises but there is a new problem: Jack’s brother is so alarmed by the damage around him, he can’t calm down. Ultimately, Audrey has to walk out to him in a deep-sea diving suit and talk him down. In the process of saving the day, Nathan discovers that Duke no longer has his Trouble and Duke discovers that he really can’t leave the town he loves to hate.
The question that remains is how the Driscoll family suddenly developed a Trouble. Turns out that Jack was attacked, just like Carrie, the newspaper delivery person Audrey helped recently.
With Vince’s help, Jennifer makes a startling discovery: She’s really from Haven and has deeper ties to the mysterious Agent Howard. Vince has narrowed the possibilities down to six local families. All Jennifer has to do is knock on the right person’s door to find out who she really is and how she’s connected to Haven.[/i]

Although the Driscoll family has never been Troubled, after a bender Jack and Aiden Driscoll are kidnapped by the thugs from the bar/barn and wake up to find they have been given a Trouble: when agitated they send out a pressure bubble as if they are deep under water. Whoever is inside the bubble is crushed to death. Jack learns that a diver’s breathing technique can help him regain control and stop the pressure. Aiden is not so lucky. Jack asks Duke to kill him to stop it, because Aiden has just learned he is going to be a father and Jack doesn’t want the child have the Trouble. Duke refuses, having lost his Trouble. Audrey and Nathan have to find another way to end the Trouble, as no-one can get near Aiden and in his distress the bubble is expanding and damaging more of the town. Meanwhile Jennifer, searching for her biological family, has started seeing a horseshoe crab with human eyes following her around. Audrey uses a deep sea diving suit to approach Aiden and tell him to use the same breathing technique his brother had used to regain control. At the Grey Gull Nathan is trying to convince Audrey that killing him would be best for Haven. However, on Duke’s boat Dave and Vince find out from Cabot’s Journal from the 1490s of a Mikmaq legend of a time of great evil and suffering that started when someone opened an otherwordly door. The time was marked—among other things—by horseshoe crabs with human eyes. They all go to the Grey Gull to tell Audrey and Nathan, when Duke asks if there is a solution to this great evil, but Vince can only give a riddle in Cabot’s Journal, “What was once your salvation is now your doom”. Duke thinks of Nathan’s desire for Audrey to kill him to end the Troubles, but then a gun shot rings out from Audrey’s room.
