Boss damage issue in False Emperor (Input Please) [SPOILERS]

Spoiler
in false emperor is behaving oddly in phase 3. When he goes to do the assassination in phase 3, it is hitting for a very large amount of damage (7k ticks). 1-2 of these ticks is survivable with max heals, but will not return from stealth until his target is dead.

The target that gets targeted by the boss is initially hit by an incapacitate that lasts somewhere over 7 seconds. It is possible that Hk-47 would return from stealth when the incapacitate breaks, but I don't think it's possible to live that long without bringing in a second healer.

The player cannot break the incapacitate with any CC breakers, and even our tank couldn't survive the assassination attempt with a smuggler defense CD up. We also used stealth detection CD's but during the actual damage dealing portion of his stealth, boss was completely invisible.

We found no way to avoid this massive spike in damage, and the fight seems to be completely blocked from our end.

My best Conclusion is:
A: We missed a major component of the encounter
B: The Damage on his assanition attack is too high
C: He is supposed to be returning to visible phase after 1 attack, but something in his ability definition/Combat AI Brain is causing it to loop.

If anyone else has done this encounter, we would love to hear your experience. And as always, any note from a yellow just saying the issue is WAD or being looked into would be great

As a side note, not having a combat log on bosses that might be bugged, is an incredibly frustrating experience. I know this isn't under the flashpoint team's umbrella, but still major sad faces all around.

isn't this a max level flashpoint, what level are you and how far have you progressed?

I did it a few hours ago. It does seem to hit verry hard, but it's doable. Think we wiped 3 times before we killed it. Think we had gear mostly from the final planets questing. (Corellia level mods)
