But the question is, What were they actually doing there?

Clark said, they were digging for the DNA of microorganisms contained in the Permafrost, which can save the world from various diseases. Luckily the researchers find a way to use it. But What did Annie have to do with it?

Clark said they did this research because of the pollution from the mine that helps to soften the Permafrost. They extracted DNA faster & less damage. In easy words, the researchers are pushing the mine to produce more pollutants. More water will be polluted the better the Permafrost was for their work. Annie mistakenly finds out everything & the conspiracy of Silver Sky Mining. She destroyed the whole Lab. After discovering it Lund stabbed her badly. Others also joined to kill her.

Raymond confessed that he didn’t kill her. But we saw a flashback scene where Raymond chocked her to death. Navarro asked why they cut her tongue but Raymond said they didn’t. In fact he added that a cop came to move her body ( basically referring Hank). So, Hank moved her body from the cave to the town & then cut down her tongue. That’s it.

Liz goes back to her dark past. She admitted that she wants to kill Wheeler but Navarro finished him.
Blizzard at outside & mobile signal isn’t working. Liz went back to more negotiations. Clark said , Annie comes back to avenge her death.
