We've got to do something.


Can we please not panic.

I really don't think we need to.

It was a full moon

when Zac got his powers

and it's a full moon tonight.

Who knows what's gonna happen

to him?

Well, I mean if that's how

he got them,

maybe that's how he loses them.

So just keep him out of it.

No full moonlight, no powers.

Please. It's that kind

of optimism

that got us into this mess.

Do you think that would work?


You tell them.

I honestly don't know.

I have no experience

with mermen.

No one in the pod does.

But it's possible, I suppose.

Assuming you could actually

keep him out of the moonlight.

Lock him up

and hope for the best?

It's a bad idea.

You got a better one?

It was your idea

to get him to trust us

now he does, so let's use it.

He'll agree to this.

Now we've seen his tail,

he'll have to.

Look we don't know

this will work, true.


we don't know it won't either.


Cam, if you're here

to pick a fight

don't bother.

Relax. I come in peace.

What? We're still mates,

aren't we?

Are we?

It's not like

you seem to care anymore.

All friendships

have their rough patches.

It's healthy.

So, what's news?


Come on.

Fess up, Zac.

You can talk to me.

No. Cam, I can't.




Hi, Miss Santos.

I just wondered

if your nieces were here?

Right, I'm not entirely

certain whether...



Is it okay to drop in now?

Yeah, sure, come in.

I hope you don't mind me

inviting myself over.

I just-- I really need to talk

to you, someone I can trust.

I can trust you, right?

With what happened to me?

Of course.

You can trust all of us.


SIRENA: No problems.


So what's up?

I had a crazy dream.

About the night

it all happened to me.

Go on.

I couldn't remember all

the details before,

apart from the full moon,

but in my dream I remember

I went into a tunnel

and then

I was falling into water.

And then when I landed in it

there were hands trying to push

me under, trying to drown me.

Are you sure they were trying

to push you under?

I'm not sure of anything.

Well, it's a full moon

again tonight.

I mean, maybe

you're just anxious.


or maybe the moon

really is involved in all this.

Maybe it possessed me.

I suppose it's possible.

Then what's to stop it

happening again?

I guess you could try

avoiding moonlight.

That's a great idea.



I mean, yeah.

Just give it a shot.


Hey, Evie.


I was about to come over and see

what you were doing tonight.

Wanna hang out?

I can't.

How come?

I'm busy.

Doing what?

Just some things, you know.

And you can't do them with me?


You said you weren't keeping

anything from me.

I'm not.

Evie, listen.

I know I've been

a bit weird lately.


And I'm sorry.


I've just...

I've got some personal stuff


Personal how?

You know,

stuff that's hard to talk about.

Your parents?

Are you okay?

Like I said, it's kind of hard

to talk about.

Is there anything I can do?

Thanks, but no.

I'm going to sort it

all out tonight.

Then everything will be

back to normal.

Okay. Well...

I understand.

And you know where I am

if you need me.


Okay. Make sure you cover

everything up.

This place has to be totally


if this is going to work.

Okay, you've said that,

we got it.


This is really cool of you guys.

It's not like you're getting

anything out of all this.

Oh, as if we'd let you do this

on your own.

I mean, we know

how strong the full moon can be.

You do? How come?

I mean...

I can only ima--

I can only imagine...

how strong the full moon

would be

because it's pretty big, right?

It's pretty...

It's pretty bright.

Is it pretty bright?

Really big and bright, yeah.


Pretty. How about you

just cover this, this window

because we don't have

a lot of time.

What was that about

following your lead?

Oh, I should've stocked up

on food and drink a bit more.

That's okay, I can go to the

cafe and get some supplies.

I'll go.

I need to get some fresh air.


Do you like seafood?


Hey, Sirena, talk about timing.

I-I was just thinking about you.

You were?


Are you busy tonight?



I thought maybe

we could go catch a movie.

See, I-- I have this thing.

Oh, you have plans,

that's cool.

How about tomorrow night?


I'm sort of busy.

Right. And you'd be busy

the next night, too, right?

I'm really sorry.

I just thought

we were kind of...

Never mind. I-I guess

I'd better get back to it.

Hi, Cam.

Hey, Evie.

It's okay,

you don't have to avoid me.

I'm not avoiding you.


Because I spoke to Zac

and I know everything.




I've been telling him to let you

in on it from the start.

He must be so alone.

Hang on. So you don't have

a problem with it?

Of course not.

This kind of thing

happens to everyone.

Not to me, it doesn't.

That makes you one

of the lucky few.

Wait, what did he tell you


I don't know if I should repeat

what he said to me

in confidence.

But don't worry, Zac's sorting

it all out tonight.

By tomorrow, everything will be

back to normal.



Here we go.

Wow, at least we won't starve.

Okay, it'll be dark soon.

You all set?

I think so.

You really think this will work?

So long as you stay out

of the moonlight,

I'd say the odds

are pretty good.

Shouldn't be a problem.

Not with you three here

to keep me company.


Nixie's right.

The pull of the full moon

can be strong...

really strong.

Irresistible even.

From what I've read.

I'll be fine.

Take my phone.

Excuse me?

So I can't call someone

to release me.



I'm really gonna miss these.

You can have mine, any day.

I just wanna go back to the pod.

Maybe tonight we will.

How you doing, Zac?

I'm okay.

But I still can't believe

how much trouble

you guys have gone to for me.

Must've been difficult for you.

It's great to have people

I can trust.

He doesn't look so good.

I told you the pull

of the full moon

would be too much for him.

No, that's why we're here,

to help him get through it.

You know, Lyla, I feel fine.

I think I can take it from here.

I don't think

that's a very good idea.

But I'm okay, really.


It's just the full moon

you're feeling.

Sit tight and you'll feel better

by morning.

But I don't wanna sit tight.

I want to get out.




Zac, listen to me.


We're trying to help you.

I don't need your help.


Zac. Please.


You have to stay inside.

Zac, come back, please.

Get away from me.

You really don't wanna do this.

Just leave, you can't help me.

Yes, we can.

Come back inside.

I have to go.


That went well.



How do you know Zac

came this way?

He'll be following

the moonlight, of course.

It's forbidden for mermaids

to walk on Mako,

especially during a full moon.

We've done a lot

of forbidden things,

let's not let that stop us now.

So much for your old plan.

Have you got a new one?

Yeah, I do actually.

Just not letting Zac

fall into the Moon Pool again.


Where did he go?

Maybe this isn't the right way.

We're heading straight

towards the moon, it has to be.

Come on, hurry.



Come on, quickly.

Did you hurt yourself?

I'm okay.


Where is she?

Did you see which way she went?





Let's move it, guys,

the moon's almost--








This is a bad idea.

Go back.

I can help you.

I can get rid of your powers.

You wanna go back

to your old life, don't you?

I wanna help you.




Lyla, where are you?

Forget Lyla.

We need to get to that Moon Pool

before Zac does.


It's the moonlight.

It's the moonlight

doing this to you.

You don't belong here.

Neither do you.

Get away.


Zac, stop.

Please stop.

There's no way in here.

He got in before.

It's finishing.

Are you sure he's got no idea?

I don't know.

It was like

he wasn't even there.

As though he couldn't hear me.

It wasn't even Zac.

It was like he was someone else.

But what if he does remember?

That's what we've got

to find out.

That's why we're going to Zac's.


Hey. I was about

to call you guys.

Is everything all right?

Yeah, everything's great.

I just wanted to check

that I didn't

do anything weird last night.

You don't remember?

I remember being hit

by a moonbeam.

Man, that full moonlight's

powerful stuff.

After that...

I don't remember a thing.

So what did I do all night?


You must have been exhausted.


So do you notice anything,

you know, like...

different this morning, or...?

Hey, yeah. How'd you know that?

Check this out.

You can't see me, can you?

But I can see you.

Amazing, isn't it?

Wow. Yeah.

That's...that's amazing.

It's like stuff is still


My powers are kind of growing.

Incredible, isn't it?

Yeah, incredible.

I'm really grateful to you guys.

Oh, well, we're grateful


aren't we, Lyla?



Hey, you.

Hey yourself.


So what?

How'd it go last night?

Did you sort out

your personal stuff?

Is everything back to normal?

Everything is gonna be

just fine.


It didn't just backfire,

it's made everything worse.

Zac has even more powers now.

So much for the full moon

taking them away.

Yeah, well if we'd have kept him

in his room,

it would've been all right.

It was impossible,

you saw what he was like.

It's what I feared.

The island's connection

with him is growing.

It wanted him there.

If you don't stop him soon,

he'll have more powers

than all of us.
