I tend to agree...
I think you're right on the money with this being a sentient terrestrial entity.
Also, last night solidified that the military has encountered this before.
Whale or Dolphin DNA, lamprey like marks, etc. all contribute to an aquatic species, as do the ray-like glowing shapes under the water.
I'm thinking that the creatures are kind of like parasites, but that the sheriff, as ringleader, can control how much the parasite can "take
over"... In this episode, we saw the wife have more control over her actions, even showing her ex, our hero, the barb...(wouldn't exactly do that
if completely taken over). Also, the little girl seemed more comfortable with her. Whereas the priest looked completely dominated, perhaps even an
older controlled one like the sheriff. (makes sense, as both are in positions of community leadership).
