If you're gonna start

a fight...


I don't want to fight.


Still sore from round one?

I was out of line.

I just...

didn't like seeing those girls

push you around.

Putting the trident back

was my choice.

I'm sorry, man.

So how are


Been better.

I had this dream last night

about the trident

and the moon pool.

It really freaked me out.

Don't you get it?

You dreamed of the legend.

It's telling you to get in

the moon pool

on the full moon

with the trident.

When the trident

was sending out energy,

it felt alive.

I couldn't control it

if I wanted to.

Maybe it just takes practice

to control it,

like with your other powers.

What if I can't ever

control it?

You're stronger now,

that won't happen.

This is the opportunity

of a lifetime.

Okay. A million lifetimes.

You can't pass it up.

Zac, if I could get my hands

on a trident,

you wouldn't have to

ask me twice.


It's too risky.


It's your call.

Want a drink?



You look exhausted.

What's up?

Didn't get much sleep

last night. Bad dream.

What was it about?

Talk to me, Zac.

Whatever it is,

you know you can trust me.

It all started the weekend

Cam and I went camping on Mako--


Hey, Evie, you got a sec?

It's a supplier.

Can you deal with it, please?

Don't worry about it.


Just leave it, okay?

♪ Though I'm far away

Across the sea ♪

♪ This moon keeps haunting me ♪

♪ As I spread my wings-- ♪

I almost told Evie

I was a merman.


I couldn't help it.

I can't keep lying to her.

Well, not telling

the exact truth

isn't the same as

just lying.

It's tearing me up.

I have to tell her.

Zac, we understand

how hard this is,

but you have to keep the secret

until after the full moon.


Look, once you're back

to being a normal boy,

you don't have to lie anymore.

You said you weren't even sure

if you could change me back.

What if you can't?

You can join our pod.

Lyla, he's a land boy.

He doesn't belong in our pod.


Look, this is a stressful time

for all of us,

but the full moon's

in a couple of days.

After that,

all this might be over.

What if it's not?

No matter what happens to me,

you can still go back

to the sea.

I have family and friends


I can't keep lying

to the people I love.



Thanks a lot.


You know why you want him

to stay a merman?

Because you've actually fallen

for him and can't let him go.



Ever since he saved you

from that trident,

you've just been stuck on him

like a remora on a shark.

That's nonsense.

Stop it, both of you.

Arguing won't help.

Well, what?

Somebody better do something

before we're all really sorry.

Nixie's right.

The pod will never

let a merman in.

Zac must go back

to being a normal boy.

Hey, take over,

will you?

If you're thinking about


you should be

between the flags.

Seriously. You get in trouble,

I'm not supposed to help you.

I won't get in trouble then.


Someone got out on the wrong

side of the kelp bed

this morning.

I just have a lot on my mind.

Care to share?

You know you can trust me.


I thought

we were on the same side,

but I can take a hint when

I'm hit over the head with it.

Zac wants to tell Evie

he's a merman.

No way.

Maybe it was the dream.

What dream?

About the trident.

I'm sure that's all

he ever thinks about.

We have to keep it away

from him.

I didn't want to

tell you this,

but Zac said

the trident makes him feel

really powerful,

and that

he has to have it.

He said it was his destiny.

Lyla and Sirena will have to

believe me when I tell them.

And what if they don't?

Maybe you should take things

into your own hands.


Put the trident

out of Zac's reach.

Oh, come on.

There must be a way.

Is it a full moon thing?

Yes, but a moon ring

can open the tunnel.

Well, great.

But I'd have to wait outside

the tunnel to keep it open,

and someone else would have

to go inside the chamber

and get the trident.

That sounds like a job

for the Cam-ster.

The trident's a long way inside.

Can the Cam-ster breathe


Have you noticed how weird

Zac's been acting lately?

Are you kidding me?

He's been doing it for weeks

and I'm sick of it.

Has he said anything?

He was saying something

earlier today

about when you guys

went camping on Mako Island?

But then he clammed up.

Now that you mention it,

he did start acting weird

after that.

Did anything happen

on the island?

He didn't tell you?

Tell me what?


On the Sunday morning,

I found him asleep

on the beach.

He couldn't remember

how he got there,

but he did remember

this tunnel.

And falling

into this pool of water.

What sort of pool?

He didn't say.

I think I know

where it is.

What if I go to

the island tomorrow

and see if I can find it?

Yeah. Good idea.

Do you reckon I can borrow

some of your scuba gear?

In case I've got to

check it out.




I'll take good care of

your stuff, Evie.

Yeah, I know you will.

Because I'm going with you.

No, Evie, I think it'll

be better--

First rule of diving.

Never dive alone.


This is not up for discussion.

If you want the gear,

I go with it.




About you joining the pod.

It's not gonna happen.

I'm sorry.

So I can't be a merman,

and I might never be human



Nixie's right.

You belong in this world,

not ours.

You have to go back

to being a normal boy.

Just forget all this

ever happened.

Are you gonna forget this too?

It's for the best.

Pretty hard to forget

I had a tail

and I could breathe


It's pretty hard to forget

I had legs and could run.

Will you keep the secret?

Just at least

until the full moon?




Are you ready to go to the cafe?


I think I'll stay here.

If this is because of what

you said about Zac before,

I'm over it.

Though an apology

would have been nice.

No, it's...

It's not about that.

I don't feel so good.

Poor thing.

Will you be okay?

Yeah. Yeah, I think so.

Do you want me to stay here?

Oh, no, no, no. No. Rita's here.

It should be fine.

I just-- I don't want

two of us missing out.

Well, we won't be long.

Seriously, take your time.

Have fun.





Zip it, furball.

I know what I'm doing.



So where is this pool?

Is it in a cave?

Kind of.

What do you mean, kind of? It's

either in a cave or it isn't.

You'll see

when we get there.

Why are you being so mysterious?

I'm not.

It's just easier if you see it.


What is she

doing here?

She wouldn't let me take

the diving gear unless she came.

She shouldn't be here

at all.

Why is she here?

All will be revealed.

Nixie, you're up.

Now that you've dropped off the

gear, you can leave us to it.

I don't think so.

We can handle

a couple of tanks of air.


Now, now,

can't we all work together

on this?

She'll see.

Do you want to get the trident

or not?

Look, thank you for

coming out all of this way,

but I'd feel bad

keeping you here for no reason.

You're just planning on diving

into some unchartered cave,

why would you need

a diving expert around?

I've done so much more diving

than you can imagine.

Cam, this is crazy, I'm done.


I need you

to help me dive.

And I need you to open up

the cave of wonders.


Can we just do this for Zac?


How did she?

Come on, you better get going.

I don't know how long

this thing will last.

You stay here.

In your dreams.

How did she do that?

What is that ring?

It's kind of hard

to explain.

What's that?

Something happened to Zac

in here.

He changed,

and he needs our help

to change back.

What happened?

What aren't you telling me?

If you want to help Zac,

be quiet,

and do exactly as I say.

You're not going through?

It's for Zac.

Looking for your girlfriend?

She's gone diving with Cam.

Are you sure?

Well, they were in a boat

with wet suits and tanks

going out to sea.

Seems like diving to me.

Did you see which way

they were heading?

East. Towards Mako.


♪ If you take my hand... ♪

The trident's safe,


It's in the water chamber

where you left it.

And the land tunnel only opens

on a full moon, right?

Well, we did open it

with a moon ring.

But Cam doesn't know that.

Right. Just Sirena and me.

And Nixie.


Zac, what's going on?

Cam and Evie

have gone to Mako.

Well, what's that got to do

with Nixie?

She's sick. She's at Rita's.

Are you sure?



Cam, come on, hurry up.

Yeah. Going in now.

Do you know what's

through there?

Only one way to find out.





There's one missing.


Come on, Cam, please.

This thing is running out.


Cam, come on, quick, please.

I'm running out of power.




Cam, hurry.

Hurry, the door's closing.

I can't stop it. Quick.


Get out of there, Cam.

Come on.

Cam, get out here now.

Where's Evie?

Still in the chamber.

Open it up.

I'll go back for her.

No. The moon ring's

out of power.

Evie's gonna start

running out of air.

We need to get her out.

There's another moon ring

at Rita's.


What are you doing


I let Cam and Evie

into the trident chamber.


Evie's still in there

and running out of air.

Where's Cam?

Come on, your moon ring

can open the tunnel.

You've done


She'll see you're a merman.

I know.



You want to tell me

why you did this?

Someone had to stop Zac.


Are you okay?

You had a tail.


Will someone tell me

what just happened?

Don't all talk at once.



I've wanted to tell you

for ages.

I almost told you



Go on.

I'm a merman.

Did you know?


And Cam?


So basically

everyone except for me.

Don't be too hard

on him.

We wouldn't let him

tell you.


We're mermaids.


Where's the trident?


got it.

Are you out of your mind?

I did what I thought

was best for the pod

because no one else


Where's Cam taken it?

Somewhere where Zac

won't find it.

And when he changes back,

we can return it.

Look, I'm sorry, okay,

but this will all work out.

Trust me.
