If you can get the entire team to drown themselves in the water nearby the mission will complete when you all respawn. It's super frustrating.

Can confirm drowning workaround... Ironic, time-consuming, and frustrating, but it works. Hopefully this can be fixed as it happens every time the boss dies before a certain phrase of the dialogue (can't remember which sorry Frown) is played.
