Never accuse Samantha and the crew on Mars of having a deficit of courage. They descended into a mysterious passageway with no guarantee of ever being seen again, all in the search for two stowaways.

The danger was real, and averted only because Samantha realized that whenever liquid recedes, it tends to return with a vengeance. Fortunately they were swept to safety, instead of into the bowels of the planet.
