Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 2, Episode 1 - The Seventh Cycle - full transcript

Two young mermaids, Ondina and Mimmi, run away from the Mako Island pod with Sirena to try to turn the merman Zac back into a land boy. But Zac's connection to Mako is growing stronger. If they fail, they may never break his connection and save Mako for the pod. On the full moon, they attempt to remove his merman powers when his girlfriend Evie comes to the rescue - only to be turned into a mermaid.

[gasps]

Hey.

What... What are you doing?



You said I should drop by.

Yeah, well, I figured
you'd look a little more... normal.

Relax. I know what I'm doing.

Well, your mermaid friends
wouldn't be happy,

-you flaunting your tail like this.
-They trust me.

And so will the rest of their pod
as soon as they hear

what a harmless dude I am.

-[indistinct talking]
-Someone's coming.

[Sirena] I know what
we were taught about mermen,

but you have to believe me.

Zac's no threat.
He's harmless.

Sirena, we've had this discussion.

If he wasn't a threat,
the pod would not have fled Mako.

But he's our friend.

Just ask Nixie and Lyla.

They've gone to join the search
for a new home.

The pod can't stay here in the open ocean.

Zac proved himself.
He destroyed the Trident.

[Veridia] There are things
you don't understand.

Tonight, the merman will enter
the seventh cycle of the moon.

His connection to Mako will deepen.

He won't be able to help himself.

Like it or not,
he is an enemy...

to all mermaids.

We have to do something about this merman.

[Sirena] We tried.

He was in the moon pool
during the full moon

and he didn't lose his powers.

Maybe he wasn't in there long enough.

Exactly.

You may have tried,
but Mimmi and I haven't.

Ondina, whatever you are suggesting,

the mermaid council will never agree.

I know.

That's why we're not going to ask them.

Hey, gorgeous.

Why are you so cheerful?

It's a full moon tonight.

Relax, I've been through it before.

Still...

Evie, I can handle it.

Hey, Evie. What can I get you?

Oh, this is Erik.

He's new.
He started this morning.

-Erik, this is--
-Zac. I know. I've heard about you.

It's good to meet you.

-I'll have a tropical juice. Thanks.
-Same.

You got it.

[sighs] I wish you two
would work it out.

I've tried.

[Ondina] What is this place?
[Sirena] Somewhere safe.

-Is the boy here?
-[Sirena] No.

There's something you need
before you meet him.

[sighs]

Legs?

If you're going to talk to Zac,
then you've got to get them, too.

I don't understand

how land people manage
on these stupid... things!

A mermaid lives here.

Her name's Rita.
She's a friend.

-[both screaming]
-A cat!

[Poseidon meows]

Hey, Poseidon, I've missed you.

Come here.

He won't hurt you.

Poseidon's a friend like Zac.

There you go.

[Poseidon mewls]

Where's the boy?

You do realize land people are different?

[Poseidon meows]

Look, just follow my lead

and try not to do anything to stand out.

Sure. We'll fit in just fine.

-That's him.
-[Mimmi] Him?

[Ondina] He's not going to be a problem.

[chuckles] I'll introduce you.

Sirena!

It's so good to see you.

David, it's so good to see you, too.

Sirena says you're harmless.

Excuse me?

If you do what we tell you,
you'll be fine.

[Mimmi] And then everything
can go back to normal.

Oh, so, you're--

I'm Ondina. She's Mimmi.

Hello.

[Ondina] We've come to solve your problem.

You go back to being a land boy,
the pod returns to Mako.

Everybody's happy.

Except I'm happy the way I am.

Hi, what can I get you?

Fish burger, thanks.

-[Erik] Ladies?
-What?

Uh, something to eat?
Something to drink?

I bet you're coconut smoothie girls.

Serves in a coconut shell
with a straw and a cute little umbrella.

Delicious.

As I was saying--

Guys, I appreciate you
coming all this way,

but there's really nothing to worry about.

I've been thinking about you a lot.

In fact, I've even written
some new songs...

about you.

Really?

Hey, Zac,
the shirt I ordered for you came in.

-Try it on.
-Great timing. Thank you.

Obviously, we need to be more direct.

Let me try.

What my friend was trying to explain is--

-Do you mind!
-Not at all.

The seventh full moon cycle
is very significant.

The island will start to control you--

Excuse me, can we discuss this outside?

Probably better in here.
You're not properly dressed.

The thing is,

you'll be drawn to the island
but you mustn't let it happen!

You've got to stay with us.

You will need our help
to resist the pull of the--

Thanks, but I don't need your help.

I can control my own powers, thank you.

I'll try it on later, thanks.

He still won't listen.

What's the matter with him?

What happened?

Thank you.

Maybe I haven't been clear.

Tonight, you're going to do
exactly as we say.

[gasps] The thing is...

I like to make up my own mind.
I don't take orders from you.

Enjoy.

I think it might be better
if you went home.

That's what I'm trying to do.

[tables rattling]

[bubbling]

[all gasping]

Are we--

Yes.

[indistinct talking]

Well, I guess they just...
really needed to cool off.

[Evie] What were they on about?

What's a seventh moon cycle?

There are legends that speak of
a sudden escalation in merman powers,

but no one knows for certain.

You see?
This is all an overreaction.

So, tonight's a full moon.
Big deal.

I've already been through,
like, six of them, and I'm fine.

Zac, if there's even a possibility
those mermaids are correct,

you need to be extra careful.

Promise me you won't go out to Mako.

-Evie--
-Promise.

[sighs]

All right.

I'll stay with you the whole time.

You happy?

[Sirena] I told you to be careful.

[Ondina] He attacked me!

[Mimmi] You started it.

[Ondina] The boy
is not going to listen to us.

[Mimmi] We have to look after him tonight.

It's getting dark.

Where will he be?

Probably at the café.
I'm gonna be singing.

Why?

David asked me.

He's written songs about me.
I'm supposed to be rehearsing.

[Mimmi] Do that.

We'll meet you there.

Don't do anything
without checking with me first.

You're up to something.

I think I know how we can break
the boy's connection to Mako.

Fine. Why?

Jumping off a customer's table

Rita had everything I needed.

he won't stand a chance.

I just need some fresh air.

I'll be right back.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
What's up?

Zac's being drawn to Mako.
We can't let him go there.

Come on!

Zac?

I need to get to Mako.

You said you had it under control.

[Sirena] Come back with us.

Come on, man.
It's too dangerous.

This has nothing to do with you.

I know we've had our differences,

but you need to come back inside.

-Don't tell me what I need.
-Take it easy.

Zac!

[whimpering]
You want him to go.

Sirena?

What are they gonna do to him?

I don't know.
They didn't tell me.

Cam, we're going after him.

Whatever happened between you,
get over it.

Zac needs our help.

I'm coming with you.

Sirena!

I thought you bailed on me.

You ready for the next song?

[boat engine starts]

Hey! That's my boat.

[bubbling]

This is my island. Leave.

Your island?

-You heard me.
-We'll see about that.

What's going on?
Who are those fish chicks?

Where is the entrance
to that pool that Zac talked about?

Under a rock ledge
about three meters down.

What are you doing? Evie!

[Zac panting]

[Mimmi] Get ready.

Now.

-Zac.
-Evie?

-[zapping]
-[Evie yelps]

Evie! What have you done? Evie!

Evie! Evie!

Evie! Evie, come on! Evie.

Evie!

Zac!

Are you okay?

What happened last night?

Nothing.

Mimmi's potion didn't work.

[Mimmi] I don't understand.

He was hit with the force of 50 moons.

-Maybe the girl affected its power.
-What girl?

The boy wasn't the only
land person in the moon pool.

Evie?

She was in the moon pool
under a full moon?

-[gasps]
-You don't think...

Hey.

How are you doing?

I'm fine.
It's you that I'm worried about.

What were they trying to do to you?

[sighs deeply]
Well, whatever it was, they blew it.

You were so brave last night.

But you shouldn't have
put yourself in danger.

Now, are you okay...
with the whole...

water thing?

How many times do I have to tell you?

I'm totally fine.

I even had a shower this morning.

See?

[groans]

-Ahh!
-Whoa.

[gasps]

[Evie screams]

[sighs]

Zac!

Evie.

What have you done?
