Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken (2023) - full transcript

A shy adolescent learns that she comes from a fabled royal family of legendary sea krakens and that her destiny lies in the depths of the waters, which is bigger than she could have ever imagined.

The ocean
is a mysterious world.

One that land dwellers
can only begin to imagine.

Of course, you think you know
what lies beneath the surface.

Ah, but the sea
creatures who live there,

well, even the ones
you have imagined,

you've imagined them wrong.

Take the mythical,
mighty giant kraken.

Bloodthirsty monster,

sinker of ships,
drowner of sailors.

That's what you people think.

You see, in real life,
krakens are noble protectors.

The sea will always
need a kraken,

and a kraken will
always answer the call.

Hey, Margot.

I am
dying of suspense.

What did your mom say?

Well, I chickened
out last night,

but I'm going to ask her
now, right now, this second.

Did you do the

exercise I taught you?

I did something
even better.

Oh, hey.

Junior prom is the sacred
rite of every human teenager.

As a kraken who is
barely pulling off

this whole human thing,

I need to be there so
that I can blend in.

And, as a proud mathlete,

I know that to find
a potential solution,

I have to evaluate the problem.

Now, I know the rules.

Our family is not allowed
in the ocean, ever.

For any reason.

And I love rules.

I do. I really, really do.

But the prom boat
is on the water,

not in the water.

"What if there's a
storm?" you might ask.

Well, I've analyzed
weather trend data,

and my trusty
friend, the Internet,

has assured me that it will be
smooth sailing on prom night.

And lastly, this is the
captain of said prom boat.

Look into those eyes.

Tell me he hasn't seen it all.

I trust him with my
life, and so should you.

And that is why I, Ruby Gillman,

should go to prom. Thank you.

Please, please,
please, please, please!

Strong presentation.

I like the energy, but
it's still a no, honey.

But, Mom, evidence,
science, Internet.

Trust me, Ruby, I know
what's best for you.

And what's best is to
always stay on land.

That's why we moved here.

It's much safer for us.

Sorry, Tadpole, Mom's right.

Sam, breakfast!

Hey, didn't you say that
prom was a postbolognal...

Postcolonial patriarchal
construct. It is.

But we would go as a group.

As a form of protest.

Wow. So brave.

What do you think?

I had these printed for
my big launch party.

I think I'm in love.

-Do you still need me to be there?

Yes. This is a
make-or-break moment.

I'm selling an
entire development.

But, Mom, you're...

Agatha Gillman, and I
slay the competition.

She got us our dream home,
and I'm not asking how.

Well, I just want to
show potential buyers

what a happy Oceanside
family looks like.

I'll be closing my shop for
the day so I can man the grill.

From chill man to grill man.

Ooh, Arthur, you
should think about

hiring someone to help you.

Business has been booming
since you started Bottled Up.

Hey there.

Welcome back to Bottled Up.

Now, let's hoist those sails.


Wow, you two are quite
the power couple.

You think that's great?

You're looking at the
undefeated dodgeball champ.

He's a legend. Ooh.

Yeah, yeah. You guys
are all crushing it.

Oh, Ruby, don't
sell yourself short.

You're amazing at math.

I am the reason Connor's
passing algebra.

Oh, Connor.

- So dreamy.
- Sam.

Ow. You're the one
in love with him.

Hey, hey. Stop. You each landed one.

Marine Biologist Quarterly?

Oh, Ruby. You're still
reading this trash?

Humans don't know
everything about the ocean.

Mom, there's a whole
world down there

that I have never seen.

Jellyfish, plankton,
coral reefs...

But what else lives there?

I know. Monsters.

And those monsters want
to hurt krakens like us.

This is where we belong.
Oceanside is our home.

Then help me fit in by
letting me go to prom.

Ruby, the answer is no.

Time to go.

- Mom.
- Gillman dishes to Gillman.

The fadeaway at the buzzer,

- and it's good!
- Yeah.


Limb up, everyone.

Let's all have a very human day.

Does it bother you guys that we
lie to everyone all the time?

Oh, we're not lying.
We're just omitting.

Yeah, okay.

And remember...

If anyone asks,
we're from Canada.

Whoa, what's happening?

- Are we supposed to be stopped?
- Is our tour over?

Apologies for the unplanned
interruption, folks.

Well, look what the
tide dragged in, Davey.

Ahoy, Mr... Captain
Gordon Lighthouse, sir.

Aren't you one of them Gillmans?


Just kidding. Not
guilty. Totally normal.

- Is she blue?
- I'm from Canada... eh.


That totally makes sense.

I've got my eye on
you, Gillman girl.

And my other eye, too!

Our tour
begins where 15 years ago,

I swear I saw the
monstrous giant kraken.

And to your right, Oceanside's
best saltwater taffy.

Ask for the Gordon Lighthouse discount.

Hey, guys.

- Yo. -Greetings.
- So, how did it go?

Yes. I'm dying to find out.

Same. I've been stress-gaming.

Well, it's official. Mom
won't let me go to prom.

And I know it's
not what we wanted,

but we still have plan B,

our very cool anti-prom party.

And what is the most
liberated food out there?

Guys, I'm talking fondue.

Ruby, um, I'm just gonna
come right out and say it.

Kayla asked me to the prom.

- Oh.
- And, uh,

I said carpe diem.

Aka, I said yes.

- What?
- I said yes.

No, I got that. Loud and clear.

Okay, Margot
has torn our hearts

into a million tiny pieces,

and that's fine.

More fondue for the
rest of us, right, guys?

Yeah, uh,

once Margot was
going with Kayla,

Trevin said, "Oh, well,
should we just go together?"

And I agreed.

So Trevin and I are going
to the prom together.

As friends.

Yeah, only as friends.



Sorry, Ruby.

We promised to always
stick together.

Does squad solidarity
mean nothing to you?

Well, of course it does.

Which is why you
should come with us.

You'll be on a boat.

You'll be completely safe.

Unless there's a
tragic accident.

- Bliss, no catastrophizing.
- Sorry.

You guys know my mom, and
that is why we made plan B.

Margot, just bring Kayla
to our anti-prom party.

We will watch bad movies.

We'll dip Swiss.

Enough with the fondue!

We eat a lot of cheese.

Wheels of it.

Think about how many
events we've missed

in squad solidarity

because of your mom's
irrational anti-ocean rule.

I guess a few.

What? There was the field
trip to the submarine museum.

The school beach day.

- All-county surf contest.
- The Grunion Fun Run.

The Oceanside
Festival of the Bard.

My grandmother's
beach birthday party.

beach birthday party!

Any birthday
party but Bliss's.

You're always welcome
at the graveyard.

But this isn't just any party.

This is prom.

And I really want
to be a part of it.

We all do.

Yeah. No, I get it.

You guys should go without me.

It's one thing for my
mom to ruin my life.

She doesn't have to ruin yours.

Uh, what if you don't tell her?

Gasp of exclamation!

Trevin's right. Your mom
doesn't have to know.

Deception. I'm on board.

Come on, Ruby. Do it.

Do it.

I want to, but if my
mom finds out, uh...

Oh, life is not a
dress rehearsal.

It's time for you to
go big and go to prom.

Okay. Okay, okay, okay.

You're right.

Okay, I'll do it.

- I'll go to prom.
- Yes!

And I'm gonna ask Connor.


Okay, that's a... that's
a big swing there.

Whoo. But we are here for it.

Step one, you're going
to need a prom-posal.

Blue-sky with me,
people. Any ideas?

Maybe I can ask him
with something epic,

like an advanced
quadratic equation.

And when I solve
it, the answer is...


Ruby, my sweet, wide-eyed,
dumbest smart person ever,

you cannot ask Connor
to prom with homework.

But look how it
graphs. It's cool.

It is not cool.

A good prom-posal is art.

Showmanship is the
name of the game

in this hormone-fueled
benchmark of adolescence.

A ritual that
embodies the ultimate

in high risk, high reward.

and one shot at persuading your
Romeo that you are his Juliet.

With stakes this high, the
only option is to go big.

don't forget to RSVP for prom,

the most important
day of your lives.

I almost asked Connor
to prom with homework.

We got you, Ruby. There
are so many other options.

Here, this is the first
draft, but with this script

and my favorite prop
from clown school...

Mm, I don't know. Do you have
something a little smaller?

Tone down the drama, you say?

- I know just the thing.
- What's that?

A commercial-grade
DJ confetti cannon.

You just ask Connor to
prom, push this button,

and the confetti will rain down
like closing night on Broadway.

Uh, maybe I abandon this whole

"ask your dream
guy to prom" thing.

♪ I really, really
wanna get to know ya ♪


♪ Hello, hello ♪

♪ I really, really
wanna get to know ya ♪

♪ Hello, hello... ♪

Connor, would you
do me the honor

of going to human prom with me?

Oh, Ruby, yes.

Oh, you've made me the
happiest guy on dry land, Ruby.

- Connor.
- Ruby.



Connor's here.

Uh, yeah. Connor's here.

Oh! Oh. Hi. Hi, hi, hi.


we're still on for our
tutoring sesh later, right?


Oh, yeah, Connor. We
are on like polygons.

right. Team math.

I'll see you later.

You know it. Anything
for my alge-bae.

- Your what now?
- I mean bro.


Like you're my brother.

You're my math brother.

You know, I think I liked
the first one better.

Give me that confetti cannon.


You gotta practice.

The trick is to reject
the concept of gravity.

It doesn't exist.
It's not real.

All right. Peace out.

Yo, hit me up later.

- Hey, Connor.
- Hey, Ruby.

What's up?

Um, hey.

So, I was wondering,

did you see, like,
all those prom-posals

around school this morning?

- Yes.
- Hmm.

They kind of weird me out.

Just ask someone.

It doesn't have to
be this big proposal.

It's crazy, right?

Oh, yeah, I hear that.

And besides, prom
is a postcolonial

- patriarchal construct.
- Patriarchal construct.

- Exactly.
- Exactly.

It could be fun to go with
the right person, though.


Yeah. Totally.

- Ruby... Oh.
- Connor... Oh, sorry.

- Ruby... Oh, hey.
- Connor... Oh, you go.

- No, you go.
- No. You go.

Yeah, no, you go. I go.

Wait. Okay, no. But seriously,
what-what did you want to say?

Um, Connor, I...


- think I'm gonna be sick.
- Whoa.

Hey. Are-are you okay?

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, yeah.

I get seasick sometimes
when I'm next to the ocean.

It's genetic.

You know, my sisters do this
grounding technique thing.

Ooh. Whoops. Wait, what's this?

-Hah. Oh. That? Never seen that before.

- Is this a kaleidoscope?
- Maybe put it down. -

It's party time!


Connor, are you okay?

Connor, grab this!

Son of an anglerfish!


Okay. Okay. Okay,
okay, okay, okay, okay.

What just happened?


- The new girl saved Connor.
- Connor?

- She's a hero.
- Connor.

Ruby, there you are.

You missed the story
of the year, girl.

- Connor almost drowned.
- I didn't mean to.

I mean I-I didn't do it.

Gosh, that's crazy.

And surprising.

Because it definitely didn't
have anything to do with me.

Are you feeling all right?

Why are you wet?

Connor. Are you okay?

Yeah. It was crazy.

I just remember there
was smoke and glitter.

And then the next thing I knew,

I was saved by the new girl.

The new girl?

The new girl.

- Thank you. Thank you.
- Whoo!

New girl.

She's going to say something.

- Shh. -
- Picture this,

me, stunning but approachable,

on my first day of school.

I'm lost and confused,

struggling to find
my first class.

When suddenly......

I spot little mister skater
boy here barely above water.

- I'm just lucky that...
- Oh.

Shush, shush. Ooh. My story.

Now, I'm not much of a
swimmer, but in that moment,

I remembered what my
mother always told me:

"You are gorgeous."

Also, "Big risk, big reward.

Always go big."

And what is bigger
than saving a life?

Yes, queen. Get it.

I love you so much.

Love you, too, rando.

She pointed at me. I'm Rando.

Oh, no. What's happening?

- Watch it.
- Ah. Excuse me.


We haven't met.

I'm Chelsea,
Chelsea Van Der Zee.

- It's Dutch. Kusjes!
- So exotic.

I love you.

- And you are?
- I'm, um...

I'm Ruby Gillman.

It's Canadian... eh.

Okay, maybe it's the whole
"don't look at me" vibe,

but there's something
different about you.

I-I really gotta go now.

- Uh, are you good?
- What's wrong with her?

Yeah, you might need
to lie down for a little bit.

Yeah, that's awkward.

What's her deal?

Is she gonna barf?

Freaking out.

Are you okay?

You really look like you've
been through something.

Yeah. I really got to go. Now.

All right, everyone.

Show's over. Let's
get back to class.

Welcome to your new home,

if I may be so bold.

- Ooh.
- This is incredible.

Oh, you've picked a great
place to raise a kid.

It's so safe here in Oceanside.

Moving my family here was the
best decision I ever made.

Doug actually grew up here.

We're moving back so that we
can be closer to his folks

when the little one comes.

Hello, free babysitting.

How nice.

Just be careful
they don't tell you

how you should live your
life and raise your children.

I mean, it'll be so nice
to have family nearby.

You're very lucky.

Oh, why am I glowing?

Glowing is not good.

I will never go into
the ocean again.

Lesson learned.

Call Mom.

Video call Connor.

What? I didn't say
that. Call Mom.

Ruby, where'd you go?

Whoa. Hey.

End call,
end call, end call.

Wait, I wanted to
ask you some...

I'm going through a tunnel.

Call Mom.

No, I can't call Mom.

She's gonna kill me.


There's three of

Oh, this is a nightmare.


Oh, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no.


Pride and Prejudice.

You're a
long way from home.

What are you doing
in True Crime?


No, no, no, no, no,
no, no, no, no, no.

A lot of you have been asking
about my beard regimen.

Do you see that?

- Kraken!
- What is that?

- Kraken ahoy! She's back!
- Oh, my goodness.

Oh, she's coming for me.

- Oh. Look at this view.
- Wow.

Holy migoli, this is amazing.

What do you think, boo?

I think... we're sold!

Oh. Fantastic.

Well, I'll get the
paperwork started,

and we'll make
this quick and easy

so you can focus
on your little one.

- I can't believe this is ours.
- Look at this house.

- This is beautiful.
- Honey, you were saying

you wanted a built-in
grill, and that is built-in.

Oh, man, I get to be
grillmaster again.

You make sure you enjoy

every minute of
quiet you have left

because once the baby comes,
it is going to blow up

- your whole life.
- Okay. Okay.

Look around. Get a
feel for the place.

Just leave the key in the
lockbox when you're done.

Or-or keep it.

Whatever. Talk soon.

up, Ruby. Pick up.

Oh, pick up, Ruby. Pick up!


Agatha, you can figure this out.

Everything is gonna be fine.

Son of an anglerfish!

It's probably
just a traffic cone.

Oh, no.


Heya, sis.

Good old Uncle Brill's here to
see his favorite niece Ruby.

- What? Brill?
- Heya.

- Are you okay?
- Yeah.

Why wouldn't I be?

I just hit you with a car.

How do you guys deal with
the gravity here on land?

It's crazy, right?

Anyway, I came to
say congratulations.

Ruby's all grown-up and
turned into a giant...

Shh, shh, shh. Not so loud.

- Come on.
- Whoa.

I see you still got that
upper body strength, huh?

Ow. Oof.

- ♪ Oh, when I say something ♪

- Ow!

Are you kidding me?

What are you doing here, Brill?

We felt the pulse.

So Mom knows?

Uh, yeah.

She sent me to get Ruby.

This is exactly why she wasn't
supposed to go into the ocean.

Uh, then why would
you live next to it?

- We needed to stay moist.
- Ew. Moist.

Where is she? Where is she?

- I need to hide her.
- Whoa.

luck hiding that.

♪ What can I do?
What can I do? ♪


♪ Oh! Oh! ♪

♪ Oh! ♪

Oh, no.

- Wow...
- Brill, stay.

Ruby Gillman, come out here.

We need to get you
home right now.


I'm a... a monster.

Oh, honey, you're not a monster.

Not even close.

I don't want to yell.
Can we just talk?

Please, just...
just talk to me.

Hey, there's my girl.

Please don't be mad. I
should have listened to you.

But I kind of

- went into the ocean.
- Went into the ocean?

I know. But right now I just
want to keep you safe, honey,

and that means getting you home.

Mom, look at me.

I won't even fit
inside our house anymore.

- Mom.
- Hey.

Hey, hey. Shh.

You'll get small again. It
just takes a little time.

I'm here. I'll wait with you.

I'm not going anywhere.

I'm really glad
you're here, Mom.

Do you remember when you
found that whale on the beach?

You mean Clarence
J. Whifferton?

How could I forget?

Clarence J. Whifferton.

You stood next to him with
a hose for seven hours

until the tide came back in.

Oh, yeah.

I asked you if I could keep him.

Where would we
even have put him?

We had a hose. A garage.

Come on. I would have
taken care of him.

I know you would have.

Yes. I'm normal.

Well, almost normal. Thank you.

Trust me, it's gonna be okay.


Ooh, I see you got your
mom's arm strength.

Mom, what is happening?!

Hey, Tadpole. What's up?

How would I know? No
one tells me anything.

Ruby went into
the ocean, Arthur.

- Oh, no!
- And you didn't die?

- Die? Why would she die?
- Oh, no.

- Who's this guy?
- Who's this kid?

Uh, that's our son, Sam.

Son? As in, I'm
an uncle? Again?

I've never had an uncle before.

And I've never had
a nephew before.

Ruby, take a deep breath.

Let me explain.

You see, when you went in
the ocean, it triggered...

Uh, it released...

The kraken!

What Brill means

is you turn into a giant kraken.

I know this is a lot
to process, Ruby,

but you're not alone.

I turn into a giant kraken, too.

What? What?

You knew?

So, I'm this?

The horrible
stereotype of krakens

that you said humans made up.

- I'm offended.
- It sells. -

So what else is
true about me, Mom?

Do I sink ships now?
Do I terrorize sailors?

No. No, honey. Not at all.

All this time, you told me
we were hiding from monsters,

and it turns out
I'm the monster.

You lied to me.

Think of it more
as a tiny omission.

Come on. Turn giant.
I'm recording.

Sam, put it away.

But this is the
coolest thing ever.

It is not cool.

I was already a little
weird, but this?

- I can't hide this.
- Yes, you can.

You don't get it, Mom.

Every single day, I
make sure no one notices

all the ways that
I am different.

I push my hair in
front of my gills,

and I stand like I have a spine.

It's hard, but
this is impossible.

No, because you can
control it, Ruby.

Just like I have
for all these years.

Yeah, but you didn't have to go
to high school with tentacles.

Do I get tentacles, too?

Sorry, son. Only the women
in our family turn giant.

The men just become older,
rounder versions of ourselves.

It's not great.

Ruby, listen.

The ocean triggers
the transformation.

But if you stay on dry land,

you'll stay small
and on two legs.

Cool. Everyone at school is
talking about the monster

that destroyed the library.

As long as no one figures
out it was you, we're safe.

Your body is going
through changes.

Think of it as blossoming.

Ugh, Dad.

Do your tentacles ooze poison?

- Sam!
- How is this even happening right now?

As long as you stay
out of the ocean...

Your body is a flower.

- Do you grow any extra arms?
- Blossoming.

- Women are so lucky.
- Things will go back to normal.

Can everyone just stop?!

Dad, this isn't a good thing.

Sam, I'm going to strangle
you with my tentacles.

And, Mom, I can't.

I just can't right now.

Ah, she forgot to do me.

I don't even know you!

Well, why can't
we just talk about it?

it doesn't matter.

Keep it down, Brill.

Sis, if I
could find you,

then it's only a matter of time

before the rest of
the ocean can, too.

I can handle this on my own.

Just come home and talk to her.

She wants to help Ruby.

She never just helps,
though, does she?

At least tell
Ruby the whole truth.

Ruby's life
is on land now, Brill.

I know you mean well,
but you need to stop.

Go home and let me take
care of my daughter.


I can't believe Mom is
still hiding things from me.

you tiny genius.

That guy can't hide anything.

Oh, put those on ice.

Good idea.

I can do both for you.


Lock your doors!

The kraken has returned!


Where is he? Where
is he? Where is he?

- Brill?
- Get off me, you feathery demons.

Ow! You winged dopes.

Ow, hey, hey.

Save yourself. It's
too late for me.

Forget the corn dog.

Did you see that?
They took my stick snack.

Uncle Brill, focus.

- I need to know.
- Mm-hmm?

Who sent you here?

Mmm. No. No, no, no. No.

Please don't ask me things.

I'm so bad at keeping secrets.

Just talk to your mom.

- Mom won't tell me anything.
- Well, neither will I.

She should be the one to tell
you about your grandmother.

- My what?
- Nothing.

I didn't say grandmother. What?

Uh, I said landlubber. Ahoy?

- I have a grandmother?
- No, no, no.

Please, uh, don't listen to me.

I don't know what I'm saying.

-I'm hungry, and I'm traumatized from before.

-It's the birds...
-If only the women in our family

turn into giant krakens,

then she's a giant kraken, too.

Uh, let the record show I
kept that part a secret.

- Is she here?
- What? No.

Your grandmother would
never leave the ocean.

Honestly, I don't know how your
mom did it all these years.

Land is not built
for a giant kraken.

- You're right.
- Mm-hmm.

It's not.

I don't know the first thing
about being a giant kraken.

But it's not fair to
keep me in the dark.

Nope. Not at all.

I can't keep
waiting for answers.

I need to take control
of my own life.

You go, girl.

- I'm a kraken.
- Preach.

And if I want answers, then
there's only one person

- who can help me.
- Your mom.

My grandmother.

Yeah. No. What?

I can't let you do that.

Your mom will kill me.

Uncle Brill...

you have been more helpful
than you can imagine.

You know, this is the first
hug we've had in 15 years.

Then I'm really sorry.

- For what?
- This.

Oh! A stick snack.


Real clever with
the stick trick.

I admit that, but... Whoa.

Yeah. It's kind of amazing.

So, there's no way
I'm getting you

out of the water now, is there?

Well, follow me.

Wait, Uncle Brill.

Whoa, oh.

That was wild.

Welcome to the Kingdom
of the Krakens.


Yeah, I know
what you're thinking.

It's a little over the top.

But you know royals.


You mean my grandmother's a...

A queen!

A warrior queen,

Ultimate Lordess,

Ruler of the Seven Seas,

et cetera, et cetera.

Give me a hug.

So tight.

- Oh.
- Not now, Brill.

It's Ruby's time now.

You said you'd be
okay with it, huh?

Of course, Mamah.

I'm not that needy, so...

I can't believe
you're my grandmother.

Please, call me Grandmamah.

You seem surprised by the level

of general majesty
and royal splendor.

I definitely wasn't expecting
the whole queen thing.

Your mother never told
you you were royalty?

I guess it was
another tiny omission.

Tiny omission?!


Don't worry. I go
to therapy now.

I see a wise hammerhead shark
on Wednesdays and Fridays,

and I've let my rage go.

Away, rage.

Ah, cookies.

Help yourself, Ruby.

Mmm. They're really...
they're really good.

A little mushy.

I made someone make them myself.

Now, talk to your grandmamah.

Tell me everything.

Was it horrible living among
the hairy crust dwellers?

You mean people?

Even the word makes
my tentacles squirm.

People are kinda nice, actually.

I have a couple of friends.

I asked a boy to prom,

but, you know, it...
it did not go great.

Well, deary, you can
put all that behind you.

You're made for bigger things.

Come with me.

I see her. It's Ruby.

Whoa. It's Ruby.

- It's her.
- Look, it's the princess.

Is this actually her?

Aw. Thank you.

Is that Ruby?

Look, look. It's her.

She's so pretty.

Hi, Ruby.

Fellow krakens,

here at last is
my granddaughter.

After 15 years,

Princess Ruby has
finally returned home

to be my successor.

Wait. Wait,
wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

I'm gonna be a, a what now?

Ruby, you're a princess.

Address the crowd.

I think...

I am having a panic attack!

Panic attack!

So, Grandma...

Uh, "Grandmamah."

It goes up on the second "mah."

Oh, sorry. Um, Grandmamah,

um, you have the wrong person.

I'm just Ruby Gillman,
normal teenager.

Normal according to who?

The women in our family

have been gifted
the mighty power

to turn into giant kraken.

You are only one of three giant
krakens on this Earth, Ruby.

We must protect the
ocean and its creatures.

But many monsters have
coveted our position

and have tried to seize
the throne for themselves.

Brag alert, they
never succeeded.

The Leviathan,


and the most power-hungry
and dangerous of them all...

The mermaid?

Yes, the mermaid!

But people love mermaids.

Of course they do.

People are stupid.

Mermaids are selfish,
vain narcissists

with mediocre hair,

and their queen, Nerissa,
the worst of them all.

She wanted to control the ocean

and force its creatures to
serve her and her alone.

Normally, mermaids would be no
match for us giant kraken...

Much too puny...

But their queen found
an ancient weapon,

the Trident of Oceanus.

The only weapon powerful enough
to defeat a giant kraken.

We formed the front
lines against her,

and for that...

we paid a terrible price.

Frankly, I suppose
we'd all be kelp toast

if it wasn't for your mother.

No way.

That's my mom?

Was she actually cool?

She was our greatest warrior.

I mean, of course she was. I
taught her everything I know.

She engaged in a great battle
with the tyrant mermaid

and wrested away the Trident.

I called it her
"queen-making moment."

It was glorious.

Nerissa fled in

We had a chance to crush
the mermaids forever,

but your mother did
the unfathomable.

She hid the Trident away,

left her kingdom, left her kind,

all to play human?


You have laser eyes?

Well, it's electrically
charged bioluminescence,

but, yeah, they
do pack a wallop.

You have the powers,
too, you know.

Besides growing big at
super awkward moments?

You're special, Ruby.

You feel it in the
core of your being.

Let me teach you.

But my mom told me that if
I stay out of the ocean,

I won't turn into a...

A giant kraken?

You are not a human who
turns into a kraken.

You're a kraken
hiding as a human.

Once you know what
you're capable of,

you'll want to be the
next kraken queen.

It's your birthright.

And fight as you might,
fight as you will,

you can never
outswim your destiny.

I don't know, Grandmamah.

I like math and Connor.

You know, teen stuff.

Very well.

I loved spending this
time with you, Ruby.

Me, too.

Thank you for
telling me the truth.

Until we meet again.

Wait. You're just
gonna let her go?

She'll be back.

A kraken always
answers the call.

That's what you
said about Agatha.

Bye, Clarence.

Kraken ahoy!

Davey, hard to
port. Full power!

Fly. Fly, me beauties.


Let's get a closer look at ya.

Laser eyes, go!

Laser eyes, go!

Laser eyes?

Hold her steady, Davey.

Bit of a spicy tuna, aren't ya?

- Wait. Is that...?
- The new girl.

Oh, my gosh. Hey.

Chelsea? H-How are
you even down here?

Because I'm a
motherflippin' mermaid.

I figured I owed you
an underwater rescue

since I kinda, sorta,
100% got credit for yours.

Time for the Gordon special.

Surprise. It's a bomb!

We should get going or,
like, die. Your call.

Don't say it, Davey.

You're such a naysayer.


I still can't
believe you're a...

A ten with a fin?
A fish come true?

A mermaid?

Ooh, I can't believe I
can finally have a friend

to share things with.

A super sea-girl bestie.

Look, Chelsea, thanks for
what you did back there,

but I started this day thinking
that my biggest issue was prom.

And now, I got a whole
lot more going on.

So I just need to go home,

get some sleep and pretend
this day never happened.

Look, I just thought
we had a lot in common,

but if you're gonna be salty
about it, then bye-bye.

Okay, Ruby, you got this.

You just need to
make it to school

and have a completely,
totally ordinary day.



you've gotta stop
beating yourself up.

Oh, Arthur.

I can't believe I didn't
tell her any of this sooner.

I mean, what was I thinking?

You were thinking
about protecting her,

like you always have.

What if she drops out of school?

I mean, what if she doesn't get
a job and runs away like I did?

What if she hates
me like I hate my mom?

It's a slippery slope, Arthur.

Hate's a strong word.

And she loves you.

She'll never run away.

Huh. This doesn't help my case.

Ruby, hey. How are you feeling?

Did you sleep okay?
Everything back to normal?

Yeah. Mm-hmm. Totally fine.

Are you sure? Oh, you
look a little flushed.

Mom, I'm fine. Really.

Ruby, is that salt
water on your breath?

Salt water? What?

No. I really gotta go.

Good. Okay. Well, if
you do want to talk,

I'll be right here.

I just... I just
really want you to know

that you never have to
hide things from me.

- Hmm, like you?
- What did you say, honey?

Nothing. Bye, Mom.

Love you. Make good choices.

Mom, I changed my mind. I

I never liked that

We have a library?

Godzilla could not beat

A tentacled freak from

So gross.

There you are!

Why'd you stop answering
our texts last night?

I was worried that
monster got to you.

I carved us each a whistle
out of juniper wood.

Blowing it could give
you precious seconds

to abscond with your lives.

Sick. Juniper wood
has been known

to have kraken-defeating powers.

What? Kraken?

Why would you say that?

Ev-Everyone knows that
krakens aren't real, so...

Behold, a plot twist.

15 years ago, you
all laughed at me.

Sorry. Not you, Davey.

You're right, you
always believed me.

But now I finally have
proof that krakens exist.

A lot of you have been asking
about my beard regimen.


Kraken ahoy! She's back!

Oh, she's coming for me.

Davey, get
the picturephone.

Do you see it?

With your help, we will

And this time, she is

I mean, this is wacky Gordon.

You can't take him seriously.

He only has, like,
ten subscribers.

- For now.
- Huh?

Trevin is sharing it
across all of his socials.

-He's what?
-What? You've never heard of my channel?

A lot of people watch
my gaming live streams.

How many is a lot?

About a hundred and
forty... thousand.

And... video posted.

-There, it's out there forever now.

Kraken! Kraken! Kraken ahoy!

Dude, can
you believe it?

- Kraken! Kraken!
- That old boat dude was right.

- Kraken ahoy!
- That thing is legit a monster.

A real-life monster.

Ruby? Cue Ruby.

Bliss, get the smelling salts.

Where are you going?

You forgot your whistle!

Kraken! Kraken!

Kraken ahoy!

Kraken! Kraken!

- Kraken ahoy!
- No running in the halls.

With a kraken
running loose,

you could use a bodyguard.

Aw, you're sweet.

The monster could be lurking

around any corner.

I'd fight it for you.


Can I talk to you?

Okay, everyone out.

Private talk time. Bye.

So, what's up?

Chelsea, about last night,
I am sorry that I ran...

Oh. Apologies are so corny.

Just skip to the part where
you tell me everything.

Look, I...

You are here on land one
day, and you already fit in.

I've been here all of my life,
and I still feel like a freak.

I-I just want to be Ruby
Gillman, normal teenager.

Oh, boo. Where's
the fun in that?

Ruby, you're a giant kraken.

Don't you think you could
aim a little bit higher

than "normal teenager"?

Oh, my cute little,
floppy, baby guppy girl.

You know what you need?

Great hair and a mermaid tail?

No, but
it would help.

What you need, Ruby Gillman,

is to see how great
your life could be.

You need a super
sea-girl ditch day!

Okay. Let's do it.

the crystal jellyfish in the
Marine Biologist Quarterly.

Sorry. Am I geeking

I still can't believe your
mom hid all of this from you.

"Hiding is surviving."

That's the Gillman family motto.

Mottoes are stupid.
That's my motto.

I hate hiding.

But you're crushing
it at school.

Everyone loves you.

You really do have everything.

No, I don't.

Ever since the Battle
of the Trident,

all us mermaids
have been in hiding.

I couldn't take it anymore.

I felt trapped, so I ran away.

But when I ended up at
Oceanside High, I was alone.

No one could see the real me.

And then I found you, my
super sea-girl bestie,

and now everything is
right in the world.

If it wasn't for this whole
mermaid versus kraken war,

you and I could be
this free all the time.

Oh, sure. Yeah.

But, I mean, two teenage
girls can't fix history.

Wait. What's the first
rule of being a mathlete?

Hmm. Never talk about
being a mathlete?

No. We have to
evaluate the problem.

Chelsea, come on.

There must be some
way to end this war

so you won't have to
hide from the krakens

and I won't have to become a
prophesied princess warrior

of an interspecies vendetta.

Well, there is one way.

Picture this:

Chelsea Van Der Zee and
Ruby Gillman save the seas

by finding the
Trident of Oceanus.

That giant fork my
grandma's so obsessed with?

Yes. The Trident.
Stay with me.

Once we have the Trident,

we can show that there doesn't
have to be a war anymore.

It can be a symbol of peace.

Then my grandmother wouldn't
have to train me for battle.

I can live in the ocean
and on land as the real me.

No more fighting.

And the mermaids wouldn't
have to live in fear anymore.

No more hiding.

- No fighting.
- No hiding.

No fighting! No hiding!
No fighting! No hiding!

I'm nervous
about the barbecue.

Oh, Carol, come on.

No one knows what happened
exactly to the library.

Sam, no headphones at the table.

- It's completely gone.
- It could have been a gas leak.

Trust me, your buyers are gonna
love Oceanside's tranquility.

It's Uncle Brill.

Ooh, don't mind if I do.

Just one second, Carol.

What are you doing here?

When I came back empty-handed,
Mom hit the roof.

I need a place to crash

A few months, a couple years.

Century, tops.

Um, hon, uh, this isn't good.

I'm here with Captain
Gordon Lighthouse.

Now, Mr. Lighthouse, you

guy's terrifying,

and I live with a warlord.

Aggie, he's got her on video.

Agatha, are you still
there? What's going on?

No, it's nothing.

Bring your buyers Saturday.


- She's got that look.
- The one where she wants us

to do something we
don't want to do.

I've been searching for
kraken me entire life.

And it cost me dearly.

Oh, fine, yes.

But if it wasn't for the kraken,

I wouldn't have bought the boat,

and without the
boat, I wouldn't have

mortgaged my house, and if
I didn't mortgage my house,

Tammy wouldn't have left me.

Huh. Been there.

Are we still
talking about krakens?

Gordon, if it's from
the ocean, I'm your man.

And I can wield this
baby, no problem.

He knows this should
only be handled

by a responsible adult.

- Ooh, pointy.
- And who might you be?

Name's Brill. Born of the
dirt, live in the dirt,

will be buried in the
dirt. Don't like water.


We call him Buckethead.

He's not too bright, but he
can take a lot of punishment.


You're hired!

Buckethead, you're with me.

Ah, now, don't be jelly, Davey.


What is this place?

The Well of Seas.

The source of all
the ocean's energy.

That's where your mother
hid the Trident of Oceanus.

She did? How did you know that?

Because she took it from my
mother, the mermaid queen,

and hid it in there.

My mom died trying
to get it back.

I am so sorry.

It's not your fault.

They were enemies.

So how are we
supposed to get it?

Each current has its own
force, its own power.

You have to swim through
all of the currents

to get to the center where
the Trident is hidden.

Only a giant kraken
can survive it.

It has to be you, Ruby.


It's just an underwater
volcano of death.

So, step one:
Evaluate the problem.

Okay. The problem is bad.

It's really bad.

Uh, we might need some help.

Ruby. Oh, what a surprise.

Show me how to use my powers.

Oh, I thought you'd never ask.

Okay, where do we start?

-Laser eyes?
-Before you fly through the ocean,

you must first learn to swim.

You know my swimming
is pretty good,

so maybe I could skip ahead

and we could unleash
my laser eyes.

Pew, pew. Pew, pew.


You must accept
your "kraken-ness"

and leave your land self behind.

You're a

There she is.

Aggie, I'm so proud of you.

This is everything you've

kraken crew.

Say, have you heard from...

Ruby. Hey, stranger.

I knew you'd make it.

Mom, I need to talk to
you about something big.

Is it about prom? Because...

No. And yes. But no.

It's about something
so much more than prom.

The ocean. Peace. Happiness.

We want all the same
stuff you wanted,

and we have a plan.

- But we need your help.
- We?

I want you to meet my super
sea-girl bestie, Chelsea.


What is going on, Ruby?

Before you freak out,
she is a mermaid,

but you're gonna love her.

Inside. Now.

Ruby, you have to listen to me.

You don't understand
the danger you're in.

We left the ocean
because of a mermaid.

Don't worry. She's
not like her mom.

- Her mom?
- The mermaid queen.

She's the mermaid
queen's daughter?

Yeah, but she's my friend.

She is not your friend.
She is dangerous.

You sound
like Grandmamah.

I'm sorry. I sound like who?

Grandmamah. She's
been training me.

She told me why you left.

Training you? For what?

Mom, don't you see? This is
our chance to fix everything.

Ruby, you are in over your head.

You do not know the whole story.

And whose fault is that?

Hey, I tried to talk to you.

I wanted to tell you
everything sooner,

but I also needed
to keep you safe

and give you a normal life.

Normal? Normal isn't
hiding in this fake town,

living a fake life.

I sacrificed everything to
give you this "fake life."

I'm not gonna hide anymore!

Oh. No, no, no, no, no.



Hey, everybody. Um, watch how
high I can throw my nephew.

Where'd he go?


We are gonna change the
world with or without you.

Ruby, I get it. You're angry.

You want to fight.

So did I when I was your age.

But trust me, this
is the wrong fight.

You're on the wrong side.

You can't tell me
how to live my life.

Oh, yes, I can. I am
still your mother.

You are forbidden from
going in the ocean again.

Now go home and calm down!

Agatha, are you okay?

What happened?

Ruby's made friends
with Nerissa's daughter.

Oh, no.

And my mother has
been training her.

15 years, and she still has
her tentacles around me.

What about Ruby?

Oh, she hates me right now.

Go find her.

Make sure she's safe.

I'm gonna deal with my mother.

Ruby, wait.

Are you okay? What
happened back there?

My mom just wants
things to stay the same.

She wants me to stay the same.

But this time, I'm
not turning back.


And here I thought I knew
how to make an entrance.

Stay away from my daughter.

You mean my granddaughter?

The princess? The
heir to the throne?

Still trying to get your way.

things never change.

You're trying to
force your daughter

into a life she doesn't want.

Now, where have I
heard that before?

The difference is I
didn't raise my daughter

to be a reflection of my glory.

Well, that's certainly true.

You raised her to
run away and hide.

You still think I
was scared to fight.

You think it was
easy to start over?

To risk everything?

I never stopped fighting.

I fight for my family.

I fight for who I love.


You just love to fight!

She's just a kid.

A sweet, naive kid.

And now she's in trouble.

She made friends with a mermaid.

- What?
- Yes.

The daughter of
the mermaid queen.

Daughter? Nerissa
never had a daughter.


We did it.

I've waited 15 years for this.

15 years of waiting to get
revenge on your mother...


Dethrone your grandmother

and lay waste to
the kraken kingdom.


there is no Chelsea.

I am Nerissa.

What's... What's

And you're

Oh, no.


Is Mrs. Gillman home?

Knock, knock!

Hey! That house was in escrow!

- Run! Run!
- To the boat, Davey.

There's kraken to kill.

- Wait!
- Gillman.

Are you here to help
me kill the monsters?

- No. That's my wife.
- What?

But if she is a...
and-and you're her...

that means...

Please don't kill
me, kraken monster.

Pull yourself together, man.

We've got a mermaid to hunt.

Thanks. I needed that.

Where is my daughter?

Oh, we already
said our goodbyes.

But not before she gave me this.

The greatest warrior in the sea,

hiding amongst humans.

What a waste.

No one talks to my
daughter like that.

Except me.

You've grown older, Queen.

Older and meaner.

Lucky for me,
mermaids don't age.

Well, I hope you both put up
more of a fight than Ruby.

Ruby? Ruby?


Don't worry. I'll get
you out of here...


I will get you out
of here slowly.

Oh, no.

What happened?

Getting the Trident was
supposed to make things better,

but all I did was
ruin everything.

My mom was right.

I should have just gone home
like she said...

gone back to hiding
and stayed small.

What? No. Ruby, that's
not what your mom meant.

I promise.

You weren't there.

Well, I may not know
a lot about a lot,

but I know my sister.

Growing up, I was so
proud to be her brother.

She was powerful, confident.

Everyone loved her.

But then she left,

and I could never understand

why she chose to leave the ocean

until I saw the awesome
life she created on land.

And I realized, your
mom chose her own path.

She chose you.

It's time to destroy that
Trident once and for all.

Yeah! Go get her, kiddo!


I'll be right there.

Don't wait up, though.

Oh, it feels
so good to be back.

And this time,

I'm getting rid of you for good.

Stay away from my mother!

Ruby Gillman?

Pause. Rewind. Ruby?

You should be dead.

Picture this.

Quirky girl fulfills destiny
by foiling fake friend!

Ruby, behind you!

You'll never win, Ruby Gillman.

You're just a dumb teenager.

You know what's really pathetic?

That you thought someone like me

could ever be friends
with a monster like you.

I am not a monster.

I'm a kraken.

Mom, we need to shoot
the Trident together.

No, it-it can't be destroyed.

That's... that's why I hid it.

We can do it if we join
together at the same time.

It's the exponential
growth formula.

We've got to shoot
it more and longer.

Trust me, I'm a mathlete.

It doesn't have
to end like this.

Just give up the Trident.

You'll never get
this away from me.

Maybe I can't, but we can.



Go, Ruby!


Now, that's a
successful monster hunt.

We got us a little
mermaid, Davey!

Please. Please, please, please.

I'm not evil.

I'm just pretty...

and misunderstood.

Now, what about the mermaid?

- Everyone likes fried fish.
- No.

Away, rage.


Away, rage.

Ruby, I'm sorry.

I was wrong.

I should have trusted
you with the truth,

and so from now
on, no more lying.

And no more hiding.

I think you can still
make the last dance.

Now, let's talk
about her coronation.

Mom, don't start.

Fine. A mother knows best.

Brill's here.

Mamah! What are you doing here?

And with Agatha?

Are-are... are you
okay? Is everyone okay?

Is Ruby okay?

It's Brill's time now.


I've waited 15 years for this.

Oh, who's crying?

You're crying.

You're our hero.

I love you so much!

- Yeah!
- Ruby for prom queen.

You really saved us.

I'm sorry I didn't tell
you everything sooner,

and I'm sorry for ditching you.

I shouldn't have lied to you.

Ruby, my sweet, magnificent,
giant-sized best friend,

you never ever have to
hide things from us.

Yeah, we will always
be by your side,

even when you almost
ended life as we know it.

Sorry, no catastrophizing.

Kraken, Canadian or otherwise,
we'll always love you, Rubes.

Squad solidarity?

Squad solidarity.

Hey, you.

Ruby. H-Hey.

So, that was you out there?


- Connor...
- Ruby... Oh, you go.

No, you go.

Okay, I go.

Connor, will you
go to prom with me?

Wait. Connor, are these
quadratic derivative graphs?

Let's just say I
had a good tutor.


Let's dance.

And who is this
fine young kraken?

This is Sam, our son.

Son? As in, I'm a

This is the coolest thing ever.

Do your tentacles ooze poison?

Have you ever wrestled a Hydra?

Better yet, have you
ever played dodgeball?

Oh, I am gonna like you.

Okay, guys. Gordon here.

Uh, this be my

Whoo. Let's get kraken.

always answer the call.
