Keeping the horror theme alive, Ryan Porteous comes a cropper with an attempted back-header which is snaffled up by Klaemint Olsen, who dinks keeper Adam Bogdan to complete his hat-trick.
It's a bit like the John Carpenter classic 'The Fog' right now as we struggle to make out what's going on via the TV pictures. David Gray and Stevie Mallan threaten with shots in quick succession, I think...
Runavik skipper Klaemint Olsen emerges from the murky mist at the front post only to knock the ball wide from close range. A let-off for the visitors.
Hibs reach 10 on aggregate and take the lead on the night for the first time as John McGinn drills a free kick into the middle of a busy penalty area and Efe Ambrose gets a touch past the keeper, who got a hand to it but couldn't keep it out.
We're up and running again but the floodlights are struggling to pierce the gloom in Toftir as the rain continues to come down in sheets. Our radio team are having difficulties seeing the other side of the pitch from their commentary perch.
No matter what happens after the break, this is embarrassing for Hibs. They need a massive improvement in the second half, just to repay the fans who have made the trip over and who are getting absolutely drenched for their troubles.
Rangers are still waiting to find out who they will play in the next round of Europa League qualifying.
It's half time in Croatia and Osijek are tied at 1-1 with Petrocub of Moldova, meaning the game is in the balance at 2-2 on aggregate.
As BBC match commentator John Barnes and summariser Peter Houston tuck into a puffin pie, we can reflect on a quite ridiculous half of football.
A shocking own goal from Efe Ambrose got the ball rolling in what has been a comedy of errors.
Asteras Tripoli, the Greek side waiting in the second round, will be licking their lips at the prospect of getting at this Hibs defence.
From that foul on Florian Kamberi, John McGinn plays the free kick short to Stevie Mallan and the new signing pings a deep ball to the back stick, where David Gray meets it on the volley from close range.
Former Scotland assistant manager on BBC SportsoundQuote Message: Every time Hibs play straight passes to their strikers, it doesn't work. But when they play down the flanks, they cause problems
Hibs break from defending a free-kick but Florian Kamberi is brought down as he speeds into the opposition half. A yellow card is flashed through the increasing gloom.
Neil Lennon is serving a touchline ban but in the near-empty stadium the Hibs players will be well aware of their manager's ire.
At least they will be spared an almighty ear-bashing in the dressing room since he won't be allowed in under the terms of his suspension.
An ear-bashing will be dished out at some stage, rest assured.
Former Scotland assistant manager on BBC SportsoundQuote Message: That's three times they have been up the pitch and three times they have scored. It's been far too easy for Runavik. Hibs had been playing well up to that goal
With the rain lashing down and Marvin Bartley claiming fruitlessly for a foul, the Hibs defence switch off, allowing Klaemint Olsen a good sight of goal from 20 yards and the Runavik skipper arrows a fine strike into the bottom corner of the net.
Hibs are hogging the ball now, with the hosts pinned back in their own half. It's still a bit scruffy though. I'm sure manager Neil Lennon would like to see some more measured passing from his men.
Hibs strikers Oli Shaw and Florian Kamberi combine effectively for the first time this evening, with the latter sending a first-time shot just wide from 18 yards.
There's a lengthy break in play as Marvin Bartley catches Klaemint Olsen with a stray arm when heading clear. The home skipper is led off the park looking rather groggy.
Hibs should be ahead as David Gray races into the box to meet a high, looping cross from Lewis Stevenson. Maybe it catches in the wind as the skipper somehow sends his header wide from six yards.
Former Scotland assistant manager on BBC SportsoundQuote Message: It is now normal service resumed. I said there would be more goals in this and Hibs are now playing some nice stuff
From a short corner, the ball is worked to Lewis Stevenson from John McGinn and the left wing-back hammers in a sweet shot from the edge of the penalty area via the inside of the post.
