What do you think

you're doing?

Aquata and I

always sing that song

the night of a full moon.

There's no time

for sentimentality now.

Come on.

I just want things to go back

to the way they used to be.

We all do.



So, what are we gonna do

about Zac tonight?

We keep him out

of the moonlight.

If he goes

into a Moon Spell,

he'll head straight for Mako

and the trident.

And you can't

let that happen.

Like we stopped him

last time.

This time we know

what we're dealing with.

What about next month?

And the month after that?

And the month after that?

Okay, okay.

I'm sick of being a babysitter

for a land boy, okay?

I say...

I say we let him

take the trident.



You can't be serious.


Well, why not?

He'll still be in the

Moon Spell. It's like a trance.

He'll grab the trident,

we take it off him.

Boom, problem solved.

It's too dangerous.

No mermaid has ever dared

touch the trident.

Why? What'll happen?

No one knows.

Well, there's only one way

to find out.

Say we did get it.

Then what do we do?

Well, we'd put it in a place

he doesn't know about.

But that's insane.

He's being drawn by the trident,

so he's going to find it.

Yeah, but not


And while he's doing that,

we work out a way

how to destroy it.

Like I said,

problem solved.

The important thing

is to keep Zac safe.

Think about it.

If the trident's so powerful,

why hasn't anyone claimed it?

Maybe because no one who took it

lived to keep it.

Perhaps the trident

doesn't just have the power

to destroy land and sea.

Perhaps it has the power

to kill as well.




Nobody knows.

Not sure.

Just level with us, Rita.

You don't actually know,

do you?


No one knows for sure.

This hasn't happened

for a thousand years.

I say we do it.

No way. There's only one way

to stop Zac.

We tell him the truth.

What part

of the truth, Lyla?

That we're mermaids and just

never bothered to tell him?

That we know

how he transformed?

And that we've been

lying to him ever since?


All of it.

Wow, he's gonna

love that.

Well, he's bound to find out

sooner or later.

And when he does,

he's gonna hate us anyway.

Us? Or is this really

about you, Lyla?

I don't care

if he likes me or not.

This is about

making him see

that he mustn't

go to Mako tonight.

No way, Lyla. Can you forget it?

We're not telling him.

So we just let him grab

the trident and be killed?

Remember what Rita said.

No one knows.

It's probably not gonna happen.

I don't care. We're not putting

his life at risk.

Can we have a reality check

for a second?

As soon as the moonlight

hits him,

he's going

to do it anyway.

Not while I'm around,

he's not.


I'm a bit nervous about tonight.

You should be.

Promise me

you'll be careful.

You mustn't go to Mako.

You sound like

you know something.

It's just...

I've seen what the full moon

does to you, okay?

I really wanna see the trident


Not when I'm like that,

when I'm all spaced out.

I'm gonna fight

the pull of the moon.

By yourself?

I was hoping

you'd be there with me.

Make sure I stay inside

this time.

Try to stop me.


You've been awesome

through all this.

It's been rough lately, and...

and I-- I don't know how

I'd have made it without you

You're special, Zac.

More than you give yourself

credit for.

I trust you, Lyla.


Let's just get through tonight.


Hey yourself.

Are you okay?

You were with her again?

Sit down. We can talk.

If you've got something to say,

you can say it to me here.

It's not what you think.


You were holding her hand,

looking into her eyes.

What's there

to think about?

She's just a friend.

She was just...

giving me some advice.

About what?

An assignment.

You don't even

go to the same school, Zac.

You never used

to be like this.

You're hiding something

from me.

What aren't you telling me?


I've had enough.

I'm not doing this anymore.

When you're ready to be honest,

you know where I am.

Are you breaking up

with me?





Whatever you're gonna say,

just forget it, all right?

You can't blame Evie.

I don't.

I always said you should've

told her the truth.

And I said

I didn't wanna hear this.

It's probably

for the best,

with your interesting


About tonight.

The full moon.

You okay?

Yeah, fine.

You don't need someone

to hold you down or anything?

It's under control.

I just don't want you

to go through it alone.

I won't be alone,



Just forget it.

I've got it nailed.

Wait, who's helping you?

Just drop it.

You don't need to know.

Not Lyla and those

other two chicks?

Catch you later.

Oh, so Evie's right.

There is something

going on with you and Lyla!

Of course not!

Then why do you wanna hang out

with them tonight of all nights?

It's none of your


How will you explain why

you've gotta stay locked inside?

What if you start

going weird?

What are they

gonna think...?

You told them.

You haven't even told Evie

you're a fishboy,

and you told them?

I didn't tell them.

They found out.

Thanks to you, pushing me

in the pool. Remember?

And you trust them?

Are you nuts?

You hardly know them.

I've got it under control.

If Zac's sent you

to talk to me,

I don't care

what he's got to say

or how sorry he is--


He didn't send me.

So how long's it been going on

with Lyla?

He still reckons it's not.

I saw them holding hands,

and he's always

hanging around those girls.

There could be

another reason for that.

Such as?

So, what can you tell me

about Lyla?


Zac's never said anything,

I swear.

What does he know

about her?

Not much, I reckon.

So he has no idea what he might

be getting himself into?

That's insane.

Anything could happen.

You're right. It could.



Thought I'd find you all here.

So you know

about fishboy.

You told him?

He guessed.

I thought you tried all this

last time.

I'm in a different

head space now.

Right, Lyla?

That's right.

With our help,

Zac can get through this.

It's okay.

You can just leave it to us.

And what makes you

such experts?

You know nothing about him,

and he knows nothing about you.

Cam, just drop it.

If Zac thinks he can trust us,

then that's his choice.

It's not yours.

You need a mate here.

Not strangers.

We're not strangers


Okay, then,

where are you from?

Why did you come to visit?

ZAC: Hey!

That's enough.

Back off.

No, they haven't answered yet.

I wanna know why.

Because it's none

of your business.

The full moon's rising

and Zac needs to keep

in the right head space.

You're breaking

his focus.

You wouldn't know a thing

about what he needs.

She's right.

If you've just come to pick

a fight, you can leave.

You can't be serious.

I don't want you here.

I hope you know

what you're doing.


Did you get the message, Cam?

We've got it covered.

Tell me that

in the morning.








It's starting.


The power of the moon

versus a land boy.

He's got no chance.

Are you losing

your mind?

Why are you helping him?

It's not me.

He's fighting the power

of the moon by himself.

And that's a good thing?

Maybe it is.

Maybe something

way down inside

is making him

stay away from Mako.

So his powers are getting


So the trident will stay there,

waiting for him?

But he's safe tonight.


do you not care

about Mako or the pod?

It's not just your mind

you're losing.


Yes. I'm here.

Be strong.

What is she doing?

Maybe Lyla

can stop him going.

No way.

You can do this.


I'm sorry, Lyla.


What have you done?

No. Zac.

Don't go.

Zac. Come back, come on.

Zac, please.

Listen to me.

It could kill him.





You stay here.

This was my idea.

No way.

I'm coming with you.



Zac, I can explain.

Now we know what happens

when mermaids touch the trident.


What are you?


We're mermaids.

Same as me.


wouldn't exactly

call you a mermaid.

Shut up, Nixie.


What happened to you

was an accident.

I leveled about me,

but you've been lying

this whole time?

You've known

from the start.

And all that stuff

about keeping me away from here.

You knew I'd come,

and you followed?

We had to keep you away

from the trident.

So I wouldn't get it?

You don't know what it can do.

Forget it.



I trusted you.

I trusted all of you.

They're fish chicks.


You were right.

I shouldn't

have trusted them.

You know now.

All I need to know.

The moon

weirded me out,

but when I touched the trident,

I snapped out of it.


it drew me there.

Like it was meant for me.

That's why all this

has happened.

I'm meant

to have this power.

To do what?

To use any way I want.

Haven't you ever

wanted something like that?


Well, stick with me,


Look, I know I messed up.

Yeah, you did.

And I should've trusted you.

Yeah, you should have.

Are you gonna keep giving me

a hard time over this?

Yeah, I am.

So we're mates again?

You bet.

I'll wait outside.

I know you don't

wanna talk to me.

But I just want you to know

that you're right.

I made a huge mistake

and I'm sorry.

I have been

kind of absent lately.

But I promise you

there's nothing going on

between me and Lyla.

We're not even friends


I just hope

you can forgive me.

We did what we thought

was right.

We did what you

thought was right.

Face it, Lyla, if we'd done it

your way and told him the truth,

it probably wouldn't

have worked out, either.

I know.

I just can't forget

the look on Zac's face.

I'm sorry.

At least he's alive.

It didn't kill him.

I told you

it wouldn't.


We still don't know.

We can't let him get it.

Well, there's just...

one small problem.

We've lost his trust


We have to get it back



Well, well, look what the net

dragged in.



I'm sorry.

Forget it.

Now would be a good time

to leave.

What's this got to do

with you?

I'm on his team.


We were trying to save you.

We thought the trident

would kill you.


It's true.


I don't believe you.

You want the trident

for yourself.

No way.

Because you want

the power.

I saw how

you grabbed at it.

Well, here's a flash:

I'm going back to Mako

and I'm gonna get it this time.

And there's nothing

you can do to stop me.
