Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 1, Episode 9 - The Siren - full transcript

Lyla convinces Sirena to use her beautiful singing voice to enchant Zac to follow their orders and remove his powers. This backfires, however, when her voice enchants David and he focuses his attention on Nixie, to Sirena's disappointment. Sirena and Lyla enlist the help of Rita to find a cure. Meanwhile, when Evie begins to worry about the big exam, Zac uses his powers to sneak into Rita's office and find the test answers, not knowing this would upset Evie.

That was so beautiful.

I was just thinking

about the pod.

I really miss singing

with Aquata.

Do you know any other songs?

Something with a bit more edge.

The "Enchantment Song"?

That's forbidden.

So? You're banished.

You can sing whatever you like.

If the pod ever found out...

How could they?

They're gone.

This is your chance...

your way to get them back.

When did mermaids sing it?

To enchant sailors.

And that's why it's forbidden.

They sailed their ships

onto rocks.


It'll give you complete control

over land boys.

All land boys.

You want me to sing it to Zac?

He'll do everything you

tell him.

Then we can draw out

his powers...

the pod will come back...

and you'll be singing

with Aquata again.

I don't know, Lyla.

Maybe I should talk to Nixie?

We don't tell her.

We don't tell anyone.

This is just you and me and Zac.


This is totally hopeless.

You're gonna be fine.

Fine's not good enough.

I need to score big

to keep my scholarship and...

There's no way.

Come on,

I've seen you like this.

You're just nervous.

No, Zac.

I've tried to study all week.

I think I've taken on too much.

Hey, Nixie...

give us the lowdown

on Miss Santos.

Miss who?

The principal.

Your aunt?

Aunt Rita.

What sort of mood's she in

today? Easy exam, tough exam?

Was she smiling?

Happy? Upbeat?

Oh, yeah, all of those things.

Then it's gonna be a killer.

I'm gonna fail.

I really don't know about this.

If it's worked on sailors

for hundreds of years,

it'll work for us.

There he is.

I can't take anything

in any more.

Let's just go.

He's standing up.

Get ready.

He's heading for the door,

let's go.

Oh, I've got to pay. You guys

go ahead. I'll catch up.

Hey, how much do I owe you?

Just leave it on the bench.

I want to beat that 99 percent

I got last year.


But I--

Do you want the pod back

or not?

♪ Would you come with me? ♪

♪ We'll swim the deep blue sea ♪

♪ Ah, ah, ah ♪




It's gonna be okay.

No, Zac, it's not.

It's the end of my scholarship.

Don't worry.

I've got this.

Look after her.

I'll be back.


I'm really sorry, David.

Are you all right?


Hey, are you even listening?

All right, that's enough, okay?

Snap out of it.

Yes, Nixie.

No, just...

go to school, okay?

You have an exam.

School, Calculus.

That's right.

Now off you go.


what are you waiting for?

I don't need an exam

to prove my worth.

Only being with you can do that.

Go away.


I can't leave you, Nixie.

I'm obliged to follow you.



What have you done?

It wasn't my fault.

LYLA: Simple mistake.

We weren't trying to enchant

him. We were after Zac.

Well, great, that makes me feel

a whole lot better.

Now just remove the enchantment.

Yeah, about that...

You do know how to remove it,

don't you?





You're so beautiful, Nixie.

Your eyes are like the oceans.

LYLA: Her eyes?

I just wanna get lost

in them forever.


this is some enchantment.

Just do something.

Well, Sirena.

Over to you.

Me? I told you I don't know

how to fix this.

You sang the song.

It's your enchantment.

Tell him to stop.

Your hair, your beautiful hair--

David, can you please

not do that?

What's with this "please" stuff?

You don't beg him,

you order him.

David, I command you.

Listen to me.

You don't like Nixie any more.

You don't wanna be with her.

You're going to school.

And you're sitting that exam.


You're so beautiful, Nixie.

What part of enchantment

doesn't he understand?

He's supposed to be under

your control.

No, he's not.

No, the enchantment song

doesn't work that way.


You said--

No, it doesn't let you

control people,

it just makes them follow you

around all the time.

Wow, even I know that

and I don't study.

No wonder it's forbidden.

You think?

I'm out of here.

I'll come with you.

I'll never leave you, Nixie.

I'll follow you to the ends

of the Earth.

You can't leave, Nixie.

You have to stay here

where he's safe.

All right.

Can you just--?


but you two better find a way

to fix this and fast.


Hold it right there.

RITA: What are you doing?


Just looking for Zac.

And why would Zac be here?

I don't know.

You've got an exam soon, Cam.

Don't you think you should be

preparing for that?



Can you look at something else?



But I only wanna look at you.

You know what, David,

it's getting a little

creepy now. Okay?

You wanna please me, right?

More than anything.

Then look at something else.

Like what?

I don't care. The--

The window, the floor, this...

It's impossible.

I can't keep my eyes off you.


Still here.

You're hungry.

No, I'm not--

Actually, yes.

Yes, I am.

How about you go

make me a snack?

I'll make you the best snack

in the whole entire world.

What would you like?

Tuna salad.

Hold the salad.

Lots of tuna.

Oh, and some lobster.

You got it.


You take your time.

Watch out.

What are you doing here?

Not good news.

We're really sorry.

What have you done?

♪ Ah ♪

You can't sing that here.

You don't know who

you'll enchant.

Actually, we do.



We need a cure.

You certainly do.

As I remember it,

there's only one way

to reverse this enchantment.




What is it?


How did you get this?

You wouldn't believe me,

if I told you.

What have you got?

You right there?

I'm good.

What did you send Evie?

Nothing that concerns you.

Take it, it's all yours.

It's not right, Zac.

I don't like it either.

But you need this.

Next time,

you can study all you like,

but you've got to keep

your scholarship.

There, that's it.

Right up there.


Almost got it.

Be careful.

We better hurry.

Nixie will be desperate by now.

How is it?

Mm. Uh-huh.

There's plenty more

in the cool room.

Oh, no, no.

I think this'll do just fine.

Would you like another piece?

Okay. If you insist.


seriously desperate.



Do you mind?

You're disturbing Nixie.

What are you doing?

Trying to help you.

With that noise?

What went wrong?


It must've cracked

when it fell off the shelf.



We need another shell.

Just don't take advantage.

I am eating my lunch.

Do you always have three

lobsters for lunch?


Excuse me, but somebody

had to keep this guy busy.

You know, he doesn't know

what he's doing.

I'm quite aware of that.

So be careful.

You know what, Sirena...

if you want this to stop...

then you find that shell.



You have one hour.

Turn over your papers now.



I'm really sorry.

I don't know why the questions

I got were totally different.


Where'd you get them?

I can't tell you.

Why not?

I just can't.

Does it matter now?

We didn't know the answers

to any of them.

I don't know what's happening

with you, Zac.

You've changed.

You'd never have cheated.

And you know I wouldn't either.

That's not how I win.

And you know that.

Don't ever do that to me again.

Your eyes, Nixie.

They're so beautiful.

Have I ever told you that?

Once or twice.

I've always thought so.

They sparkle like stars

in the night sky.

You really think so?


And your lips

are the color of ripe...

luscious strawberries.

They are?


What happened?

My exam.

I've got to go.

Principal Santos, please,

I don't know what happened.

One minute I was studying

and the next I was--

It's all right, David.

You're a good student.

I know you would have been there

if you could.

Thank you.

So what's going to happen?

Can I still sit the exam?

You and the rest of the class.

The rest of the class?

There was a problem

with the questions.

It seems they were taken

from next year's syllabus.

So everyone will be resitting

the test next week.

Oh, don't you start.

That was pretty clever

the way you got those questions.

Cam, I don't need this

right now.

Thanks for sharing them with me.

It's nice to know that you

and Evie will

be the only ones

getting full marks.

Actually we flunked it too.

Principal Santos

changed the test.

Powers can't do everything.


This is for you,

to replace your old one.

We didn't mean to break it.

It just sort of fell.

Please. I get enough excuses

from my students.


We brought you these as well.

Right. Well, I guess the day

hasn't been a total disaster.

You seem to know a lot

about the "Enchantment Song."


Yeah, yeah.

When you were younger...

you and your land dweller


Did you ever maybe...?

Did I ever sing it to him?

Of course not.

Love and loyalty are the same

in the ocean as they are here.

You can't cheat in love

or exams.


All you need to know is

love casts its own spell.


if that's what it does then

I am sure glad

that I can't sing.

Before I blew

that conch shell...

you weren't gonna kiss him,

were you?


Yes, she was.

No, I--

Don't you start.

You were.

I was--

Okay, you know what?

You were definitely

gonna kiss him.

No, I wasn't.

It sure looked like it,

you were this close.

Yes, you were.

Then you looked at your lobster.

No, you--
