Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 1, Episode 10 - Zac Returns to Mako - full transcript

Zac wants to know exactly how he became a merman, so he decides to return to Mako to find out the truth. However, the girls know that Zac doesn't know about the underwater entrance or the fact that the land entrance does not open unless the full moon is out. When Sirena and Nixie strictly reject Lyla's request to use Sirena's Moon Ring to open the entrance, Lyla steals Rita's Moon Ring and goes to Mako Island with Zac herself.

You're taking a risk,

aren't you?

I felt like chilling out.

Anyone could have walked

in here.

My parents have gone to work.

People don't usually drop in.

We did.

You forget.

I could always make myself

disappear if I had to.


It's much easier

to think underwater.

Sure is.

I mean, it must be so peaceful

down there.

I can see things very clearly.

That's why I'm going back

to Mako.

I've gotta find out

how I got this way.

What if something else

happens to you?

It's not a place to be

on your own.

You're welcome to come with me.

Yeah, we're gonna have to think

about that one.

Sure. I understand.

I appreciate everything

you've done,

but I'm going back

to Mako today.

If he's going,

we have to go with him.

Sure, that's

a great idea, Lyla.

Just lead him back

to the moon pool.

Nixie's right, Lyla.

He's going, anyway.

It's better we're with him

than not.

Let's work with him.

If we don't find out

how he got his powers,

how are we gonna figure out

how to get rid of them?

Okay, well, that's...

not only dangerous,

but a total waste of time.

The land entrance only opens up

with the full moon.

Yeah, so we just need to find

another source of moonlight.

And where would we get that?

You mean use my moon ring?

No way!


Why not?


Are you out of you mind, Lyla?

You have no idea

what might happen.

Just forget it.

LYLA: Oh, come on.

I'm not doing it.

So we just wait until

the next full moon

to find out what happened

to his powers?

Where is this going to end?


It's not happening,

just forget it.

And that's final.

Do I detect a little tension

in the air?

You all need to be submerged

for a while.

It's only because there are

things we don't understand yet.

Mermaid things.

Well, that's to be expected.

You don't have

your moon rings yet.

You completed

your mermaid studies.

You were initiated

into the pod.

Top of my class.

So you know how Mako works?

How the full moon affects it,

including the entrance

to the land tunnel?

I didn't even know

there was one...

so whatever it is,

it's not something

you should be meddling with,


Come on.

What are you waiting for?

What's taking her so long?

She's sulking, of course.

I'm not waiting around for that.




It's okay. Shh!




Get off, Poseidon.

I need to look in there.


Top of her class.

I knew she'd have one.


I'm only borrowing it.



Oh, what is it, Poseidon? Shh.


Zac? You still here?


I'm just about to leave.

I'm coming with you.

But I thought-- Nixie said--

I make up my own mind.

Cool. We can go

in Cam's tinny.

We can't.

We'll get hit by the spray.

So I got a tail.

It's not like I have to hide it

from you anymore.

No, but it'd be way faster

if you swam, right?

What's the hurry?

Now that you're coming it's

only right that we go together.

It's fine, I can handle a boat

by myself, you know.

You have to swim.


Well, because, um...

if we figure out

what happened to you,

then it's the last time

you'll have a tail.



I'll take the boat,

meet you there in an hour.


Looks pretty spooky

even in daylight.

Why do you camp here, then?

Well, I never thought that

before the weird stuff

that changed me.

That only happens

when there's a full moon.

I hope.


So it's cool.

We stick together

and look after each other, okay?

I can't remember

which way I walked from here.

Hey, Zac.

We should go this way.

How do you know?

It just...

looks like

someone's been through there.


I guess.

It's worth a try, right?


Hey, I think this is the spot.

So where's the cave

that you went into?

I don't know.


Maybe it wasn't here.

No, trust

your first instincts.

They're usually right.

This is the place.

That's where it happened.

But I don't understand.

There should be

an entrance here.



How long have we been waiting

for Lyla now?

Four tops, three skirts

and a jacket's worth.

Face it, she's not coming.

She's so stubborn.

As soon as she gets an idea

in her head, that's it.

Nothing stops her.

You don't actually think

she'd try it, do you?

To open the land entrance

another way?

How? You're the only one

who has a moon ring.

This is Lyla.

Like you said...

Nothing stops her.

Well, we're not getting through

that in a hurry.

Why don't you try

your powers on it?


Nothing's happening.

Keep trying.

Keep going.


Did I do that?

How else could it have happened?


What do we do now?

We enter.



This isn't good.

What if I use my powers again?



It's not working.


We're trapped.

Have you seen Lyla?

She left about an hour ago.

Did she say where she was going

or what she was doing?

She wanted information

about Mako.

I told you.

I knew it!

What is this all about?

Lyla wanted to borrow

my moon ring.

And I said no.


My moon ring's gone!


We're gonna get it back,

don't worry.

How did she know

you even had one?

She was asking about

the land entrance

to the moon pool on Mako.

Is that what it's for?

She thought she'd use a moon

ring to try and open it.

She's gone there with Zac.

I warned her not to meddle with

things she doesn't understand.

She mustn't use

that moon ring on Mako.

We have to stop her.

Yeah, well, if we suddenly

turn up on Mako,

what's Zac gonna think?

"How did you get here?"

Of course you can borrow

my boat.

Where are you going?


Mako Island.

Oh, cool.

I finish my shift in

half an hour. I'll take you.



There's a couple of tricks

to starting the outboard motor.

Well, we'll figure it out.

It's no problem.

I haven't been there in ages.

We really need to go right now.

Oh. Maybe I can

get off early.

I'll ask Carly to cover for me.


You're too responsible

for that.

You can't let

your customers down.

We'll get the motor started.

We'll be fine.

You can come next time.

Okay, if you say so.



We'll be back

in a couple hours.




That's not gonna budge.


I guess I got us

into a pretty tight spot.

No, it's-- it's my fault.

How do you figure that?

I encouraged you

and I chose to come.

Why did you?

You couldn't come by yourself.

What if something

happened to you?

You worry about me that much?

There's gotta be another way

out of here. Come on.

We're not really getting

in this thing, are we?

No way.

We'd both be on the bottom

flapping around with tails.

Great, so this is

a waste of time?

Sirena, this isn't

going to work

as a cover story

for how we got to Mako.

I've got a plan, all right?


There's no way out.


What is that?

I've seen it before.

But it was glowing like

this bright light was behind it.

When I touched it, the floor

must've opened up and I fell.

This vanished?

What are you doing?

Don't worry, I've got you.

In case it happens again.


Here goes nothing.


You're affecting it.

It's glowing

because of you.

I remember it did that

when I touched it.


What is it?

I don't know.

Do you remember this?


It's almost like it's alive.

No, you'll get a tail.

Maybe even something worse.

What if we get sucked

into the depths for good?

This is what I came for.

I have to find out

what happened to me, Lyla.



Come on!

Open up.

Are you sure

this is the way Lyla described?



I don't know.

Wait. Didn't Zac and Cam

camp the night that

he fell into the moon pool?


Well, this was a campfire.

That could be anyone's.


Lyla mentioned a rock wall.

And this is the way

to the volcano.



Come back.



This has got to be it.


Well, if this is

the land entrance,

it can only be opened

by full moonlight.

And a moon ring,

if she's right.

Yeah, well, why isn't it

open now?

I don't know,

but we have to find her.


I don't see anything.


But I hear something.

Zac! Come back!


Zac! Come back!

Zac! Zac!

Can you hear me?



We don't have much time.


Zac! Zac!

I saw something in there.

Like that symbol.

We have to get out of here now!

What are you guys doing here?

We're looking for you.

What was that?

It's the tunnel

I told you about.

It's gone.

It's the one I went into

the night

everything happened to me.

I opened it before.

Why can't I do it now?

Who knows? Let's just go.


I wanna know

what that thing I saw was.

Whatever it was,

we can't go back in now.

That was way too close.

But I wanna know

what it all means.

It means this is a dangerous

place and we're lucky.

I'll swim back.

I'll meet you there.


Nice ring.


There was water all around me.

High above and deep below.

I can't explain it.

This object was floating

in the distance.

I should have kept going.

I should have taken it.

Maybe you weren't meant to.

Why do you say that?

Just a thought.

I'm gonna go back

and I'm gonna get it this time.


But I have to do it.

Just don't go back without me.

It's too dangerous. Promise?

Okay, I promise.

Hey, we make

a pretty good team.

Can I get you

something to drink?

No, I should be going.

You sure? I could talk

about this for hours.

I've got some things

I need to do.



Got something of mine?


If you ever steal from me again,

you won't be welcome here.

I promise I won't.

You were banished

for a reason.

There are forces out there

no one understands.

Me included.

It's bad enough that the boy

and the island are connected.

You're just putting yourselves

and him in danger.

Thanks, guys.

If you hadn't shown up,

we'd still be stuck in there.

For some reason, the moon ring

didn't work inside the tunnel.

Maybe it only works in a place

that can receive full moonlight.


we warned you against using it.

That doesn't usually

stop me.

Guess I should have

known that by now.

But what does all of this mean?

Some strange object

in a massive pool?

I don't know.

One thing's for sure.

It's pulling at Zac and

it's gonna keep doing that

with or without our help.

He's gonna keep getting drawn

back to Mako.

We can't stop it.
