[Zac] Morning.

It's a beautiful day, isn't it?

Yes, it is.

How are you?

-I'm great.

I've got a lot to be thankful for.

This beach, perfect weather...



And your sister.

Ah, it's a busy day.
I'd better get going.

I'll see you at the café, okay?

[Sirena] All this time we've been
so close to your brother.

It is pretty amazing.

You never felt anything?

I can always tell when Aquata's nearby.
I can feel it in the water.

Not until we started sharing visions.

Now we know why
we couldn't take Zac's powers away.

He was never a land boy at all.

[Mimmi] Hey, Evie.

Have you seen Zac?
Is he okay?

-He's fine.
-Are you sure?

He said he didn't want to have
anything to do with us.

That was then.

Now, I think he's accepted it.


I've been wanting to go and see him.

[Dr. Blakely] So, we were thinking
we'd go and have lunch at the club.

[Mrs. Blakely] It's a beautiful day,
we can get a table looking over the water.

Why don't you come with us?
We haven't done that for ages.

-I know. I've just got stuff to do.
-[Mrs. Blakely] Come on, Zac.

We can, you know, have a chat.

[knocking on door]

[Mimmi] Oh!

-Hi, there.
-[Dr. Blakely] I don't believe we've met.

I'm Dr. Blakely, Zac's father.

And I'm his mother, Lauren.

Nice to meet you.
I'm Mimmi, Zac's--


She's just a friend.

-Leave it. I'll put it away.
-Please, come to lunch.

We'd like to...
explain some things.

You've already explained.

Just go and enjoy your lunch.
It's okay.

Well, if you're sure.

-[Dr. Blakely] Nice to meet you, Mimmi.
-You too.

They seem nice.

I can see how much
they care about you.

You... want to hang out?

Uh, go for a swim?

-I'm kind of busy.

Well, later then.

You've probably got loads of questions.

I know I do.

There's so much to find out.

We can do it together.


We've got each other now?

I've got to go.


I really need to talk to you.

[Carly] Erik?

Table six are waiting on those.


Hey, Sirena.

Tell David.

-[Sirena] Tell him what?
-To have a party.

It's the café's second anniversary today.

Nobody wants to celebrate
a café's anniversary.

I'm just happy it's lasted this long.

-We have to do something.
-A cake at least.

I make a delicious seaweed jelly cake.

I think David would prefer
an ice cream cake.

-I don't know how to make one of those.
-It's okay.

I can do it.
I'll make his favorite.

Keep him busy.
I'll go get the ingredients.

This is going to be
the best cake ever.


Hey, big guy.
Where you headed?

Meeting Evie at the café.

How's things?
I've been worried about you.

Well, you can stop.
I'm fine.

At least we know why
you always beat me in the pool.

Unfair advantage,
you being a real merman.

You have a shelf full of trophies
won under false pretenses.

[Luca] Hey, Mitchell.

How come you're not in the tower?
Get back up there.

I'm just talking to my friend.

What is wrong with this guy?
Can't even do as he's told.

Maybe he thinks he's in charge?

Come on, guys.
He got down for a second.

I know you.

Zac Blakely.
Used to be a lifeguard too.

-What happened? You couldn't hack it?
-[Cam] Whoa! Cool it, Luca.

Get back up there
or you're cleaning the clubhouse toilets.


[Sirena] And I really love
the colors in here.

Is this what it looked like
when you first opened?

Pretty much.
Where's Carly?

She's busy.

Did I mention
that I really like the tables, too?

Carly, can you clear those tables?

Yep. Onto it. I just have to get something
from the cool room.

And where did you get this?
I love it.

Sirena, it's a fridge.


I really need to talk to Ondina.
Do you know where she went?

She's really upset with you.
We all are.

I know I made a mistake and I'm sorry.

I just want a chance
to explain everything.

If I was Ondina,
I wouldn't want to see you.

So, is she at Rita's?

I didn't say that.

Right. Thanks.

-Hey, Evie.

I, um...

I really admire you
for handling this so well.

I mean, it's such a huge shock,
but you really seem to be

-getting your head around it.
-Evie, enough.

And then discovering you've got a sister
and a whole other family in the sea.

How incredible is that?

I'm sorry, I can't do this.



What's wrong?

[voice breaking]
What do you think is wrong?

My mum is not my mum,
my dad is not my dad,

and I have no idea
who my real parents are.

I'm not even a real human being.

I... I just...
I don't know who I am anymore.

I don't think Zac's ready to accept me.

He's gonna need time.

His whole world has changed.

Why is everyone so concerned about Zac?

Our mother abandoned me, too.

-Why would she do that?

I don't know.

But from what I've heard,
Nerissa was an extraordinary mermaid.

I'm sure she loved you both very much.

Not enough to keep us.

It would have been...
a last resort.

A way of making sure you were both safe.

Safe from what?

I heard rumors of trouble
in the Northern Pod.

But it is no accident
that you grew up near each other,

Zac here on land,
you out there with the Mako Pod.

Nerissa wanted you as close as possible,

so that one day you'd find your way
back to each other.

You really think so?

-What do you think?
-David's gonna love it.

Uh, can you grab me a box?

-David will never find it in here.

Carly, what are you doing in here?
We've got customers.

Uh, the weekly clean up.

Yeah, that's right.

-And you know how long that takes.
-But we did that yesterday.

[Carly] I thought I'd get in
early for next week.

Hey, David, uh,
can you take over from here?

I've got a last minute seafood order
that needs to be delivered.

Oh, what order?
I didn't see any.

Oh, don't worry about it.
I've got it sorted.

I'll be back soon, okay?

[doorbell ringing]

It's not your usual delivery.

It's a peace offering.

You think a few crustaceans on ice
make up for what you did?

-I was trying to help you.
-By lying to me.

You agreed to keep Zac away
from the chamber,

-and then you led him straight there.
-We all need to know what it's for.

He's the only one
who can start it up and show us.

If he controls it,
you'll be safe.

You don't know that.
Anything could've happened.

-Just take it and go.
-I'm not leaving.

Fine, then I will.

All I ever wanted was
to make sure you were safe.

-Maybe I went about it the wrong way but--
-[scoffs] You got that part right.

But it's because
you're so important to me.

You were important to me, too.
Like no one else ever has been.

You were the first
I ever let get that close,

the first I ever let myself
feel that way about.

This isn't just about Mako.

It's about me.

We don't have a gig tonight.

In fact, I was planning on closing
a little early for a change.

You can't do that.

-Why not?
-Uh, because...

-I, um, took a late booking...

-...for a big group.
-Big group.

We don't take bookings.

Well, I wasn't gonna turn
that many people down.

[David sighs]

Can't we just give him the cake now?

Not everybody's here.
There's only a few more hours to wait.

It'll be fine.

What are you doing here?

I thought you'd be here.

Looking for answers.

-You need to talk.
-No, I don't.

Yes, you do.
We both do.

You know what I don't need?

I don't need you telling me what I need.

I'm your sister.
I'm not giving up on you.

I've never had a sister before,
and I don't have one now.

You're still trying to
come to terms with everything.

-I get that.

This is not something
I'm just gonna come to terms with.

I don't want to be a merman.

And I definitely don't want to be
your long lost brother.


No, no.
No, no, no.

Oh, no!


Are you okay?
What's that?

That was the cake I made David.

Someone took it out of the cool room
and now it's ruined.


Is that all?

I thought someone
in your family must've died.

It'll still be a good party though.

You can't have a party without a cake!
We might as well call the whole thing off.

So, make another?

There's not enough time.
It was hard enough

to make that one
without David finding out.

Come on.

Give me a minute
and I'll think of something.


I've been looking for you everywhere.

Why is your phone off?

Maybe it's because
I don't want to talk to anyone.

You don't want to talk to your girlfriend?

[sighs] Evie, please.

I'm sick of everyone trying to help.

-It's my life!
-And it's been turned upside down.

I just want to help you.

Well, I don't want your help.

Go jump off another pier.

[Luca] Hey, Evie.
Is he giving you a hard time?

-No, I'm fine.
-Didn't sound like it.

She said she was all right, okay?

I don't know why
you hang around with him anyway.

Because he's my boyfriend.

[Luca] I reckon you could do way better.

She doesn't need your advice!

More like she doesn't need you.

Okay, guys, cool it.

Forget it, Luca.
He's not worth it.

You're right, he's not.

The guy's a quitter,
can't stick at anything.

You'll see.

Come on, man, let's go.

Zac, leave it.
They're idiots.

-What are you doing?
-I'm trying to stop.

[Gabe] Put the brake on!
[Luca] I am!

Stop it!

You said they're idiots.
This is what idiots deserve.

What's wrong with this piece of junk?

Zac, come on.
Give it up!

[Luca] The wheels jammed!

[Evie] Zac, please!

[Gabe] We'll have to jump.

Dude, I can't let the buggy
go in the water.

[Mimmi] Stop! This isn't you, Zac.
You're better than this.

You think you're the only one
who's hurting?

Your parents didn't lie to you
your whole life!

No, because I never had any parents.

Until now, I never had any family at all.

You have a mother and a father
who love you very much.

So, how dare you feel
so sorry for yourself.

You have no idea how lucky you are!

Go, go, go!

[engine revving]

Zac, you need answers.

Talk to your parents.

[Mrs. Blakely] Maybe we should have
told him the truth sooner.

We did what we thought
was right at the time.


Tell me who I am.

[Mrs. Blakely] We tried and tried
to have a baby, for many years.

[Dr. Blakely] We had all the tests, but...

it just wasn't possible.

We used to take long walks
along this beach.

Being by the water always helped.

We used to stare out at the ocean
and wish for a child.

-[Mrs. Blakely] And then one day...
-[baby crying]

It was as if our wish had been heard.

It was like the ocean
had carried you to us.

And we loved you from the start,
with every bit of ourselves.

[Dr. Blakely] We tried
to find your birth mother...

but nobody claimed you.

So we adopted you.

I know it's hard to understand
why we didn't tell you,

but as far as we were concerned--

[Mrs. Blakely] You were ours.

Someone, somewhere had
heard our wish and answered it.

[Dr. Blakely] We always loved you.

[Mrs. Blakely] And we always will.

[Carly] This is a total disaster.

It's okay.
We don't have to share it.

It's David's cake.
We can just watch him eat it instead.

That sounds like fun.

Told you I'd think of something.

What's going on?

The booking that Carly made,
they'll be here soon.

Actually, they just arrived.

[all] Happy Anniversary!

Ice cream cake, that's my favorite!

We know you said
you didn't want to celebrate.

But you know me, I never do as you say.

So for once, we're serving you
instead of you serving us.

-[Cam] Hurry up and make a wish.
-Before it melts.

My wish came true already.

[Carly] Who wants cake?
[Sirena] Yes!

Looks like I got here just in time.

Are you okay?

I'm getting there.

Thank you so much.

I still can't believe
you bought that for me.

-I care a lot about this place, too.

And the people who work here.

What's this?

State Champion Boys 200 Meter Freestyle.

-I can't take your prize.
-You were right.

I had an unfair advantage.

Take it.

You earned it.

But now I'm feeling bad about
all the fish we caught as kids.

They're kind of like your relatives.


Come on, try it.
It's just ice cream cake.

-See? Sometimes I get it right.


I was meant to be with the Blakelys.
I know that now.

Just like we were meant
to find each other.

We were so close, all that time.

[Zac] Maybe our mother knew
I had a connection to Mako, too.

[Mimmi] She wanted to be sure
you could still follow your destiny.

Whatever that is.

You'll find it.

We'll find it.

I think that's why
she wanted us back together.

We need each other to find it.

You never give up, do you?

I want answers...
to all of this, just like you.

Talk about stubborn.

I guess it must run in the family.


I guess it must.
