Where Lies the Engulfer was the twenty-fourth episode of Season 1 of The Secret Saturdays. It is the twenty-fourth episode overall. It premiered on July 18, 2009.


Zak's been training in the shadowy mercenary arts under Doyle's hand, and now it's time for the final test.


Zak and Doyle go on a training mission in an abandoned town in Canada. As the two are training on how to be deceptive, they are attacked by the nearby lake. When they realize that the lake has been swallowing people that use water from the lake, they come up with a plan to escape. Doyle creates a diversion while Zak runs for help, until Zak realizes that Doyle has lied about his reserve oxygen tank in order to get Zak away from the lake. Zak returns to rescue Doyle with a wheelbarrow full of quick-dry cement, which turns the lake to stone. Zak and Doyle make their escape, then arrange for cement to be dropped in the lake by helicopters.
