It is clear that these answers will not fit in the grid with the rules given. With this round's theme being the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, and the grid looking like a dance floor, the idea of dances can be created.

COMIC STRIP → FOXTROT (FoxTrot is a comic strip created by Bill Amend)
TWO → TANGO (from the saying "It takes two to tango.")
PLAYING CARDS → SHUFFLE (you shuffle a deck of cards)
HELL → LIMBO (in the Catholic faith, Limbo is one of the parts of hell)
ALDRIN → MOONWALK (Buzz Aldrin was one of the first men to walk on the moon)
FORT SUMTER → CHARLESTON (Fort Sumter lies in Charleston Harbor)

These dances fit nicely into the grid given, with one unique solution:
