[alarm clock ringing]


Oh, yeah, the tail thing.
It can be a bit of a problem.

This is not a bit of a problem.

This is a major disaster.

I know it's weird at first,
but you get used to it.

I don't want to get used to it!

I can't even take a shower.

How do you wash yourself?

There's a lot of ocean out there.


Look, I had a plan.

Get my fashion label started,
buy a car, travel.

Nowhere on my list does it say,
[scoffs] "Turn into a fish."

You're not a fish.
You're a mermaid.

Don't say that.

Well, part-mermaid.

Not helping, Zac.

It's okay. I'll come over.
We'll work something out.

Just... try and stay dry.

That's easier said than done.

I'm surrounded by water...

and I have to get to work!

Everything will be okay.


I'll be there as soon as I can.


[Sirena] So, what's the plan?

[Mimmi] Plan for what?

To change Evie back.
You can't leave her a mermaid.

She's not a mermaid and she never will be.

-She still has a tail.
-That's not our problem.

We need to stay focused on Zac.

Can't you see how hard this is for Evie?

Maybe you haven't noticed,

but land people
are around water all the time.

They drink it.
They wash their clothes in it.

Well, that's just silly.

Wherever Evie goes, she's at risk now.

Every time she touches water,
she'll transform.

[Sirena] It's hard enough for Zac
to keep his tail a secret.

You want to leave Evie
with the same problem?

Sirena's right.
We should help her.

If we couldn't remove
Zac's tail on a full moon,

how are we supposed to turn Evie back?

Anyway, like Mimmi said, Zac is the focus.

Evie is low priority.

Do you think she'd be a high priority

if the mermaid council
found out what you've done?

There is no need for the council to know.

You were the ones who changed her,

now you have to change her back.

Actually... there is something
that we could try.

[knocking on door]

Oh, you're up at last.
Ready to go?

We're having lunch
at the club, remember?

Sorry, it completely slipped my mind.

Just put on a decent shirt
and let's get going.

The thing is...

I'm actually on my way to the café.

Well, can't you go later?

I've already made plans
to meet up with Evie.

She's... kind of having a bad day.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.

I hope everything's all right.

Yeah, she just needs some company.

Won't she be busy working?

I'm going to help her.

Selling girls' clothes?

[chuckles] Yeah.

Hey, I'm sorry I forgot about lunch...
but I really have to go.

We'll have lunch another time.


-[Dr. Blakely] Say hi to Evie from us.
-Will do.

-[Mrs. Blakely] See you tonight.


Why didn't you answer my calls?
What happened on Mako?

-Is Zac all right?
-There were... complications.

What complications?

Alarm clock break?
You're, like, 40 minutes late.

Oh, it's just been one of those mornings.

-Can we just do this later?

I'll explain, I promise.

You look... different.


Your skin, it's glowing.

I hadn't noticed.
It's just the same old me.

Nothing new...

or different.

Hey, thanks so much for opening up.

-Do you mind making me the usual?
-Yeah. Take that.

I'll make you another.

I hope the girl will be
more sensible than the boy.

It might be better
if I went in on my own.


She might be a little upset
after what we did to her...

and you can be a little overbearing.

-Just sometimes.



We met last night.

You're one of them?

Stay away from me!

I'm a mermaid, not a vampire.

Please, I'm not here to hurt you.

Do you have any idea what you've done?

You've ruined my life!

I'm sorry.

You turned me into a gill monster
and all you can say is "I'm sorry"?

I think I can reverse your transformation.

[Evie] Okay.

Go ahead.

I need a little time.

Well, hurry up.

I can't even drink a juice without it
wobbling and spilling everywhere.

You've got powers?

That's more than I would have expected.

Have you tried boiling liquid
or shaping it?

I haven't tried anything, okay?

I just want you to make me normal again.

-There you go, girls.
-Oh, thank you.

-Thank you.
-No worries.

Hey, it's the coconut smoothie girl.

-What can I get you?
-I don't want anything.

We have some terrific specials,
all made right here.


Do you have any idea how inadequate
this makes me feel as a waiter?

Not my problem.

Go away.

You know, I was wrong about you.

You're a watermelon juice girl.

I'll be right back.

We want you back the way you were
as much as you do.

-Trust me.

Everything will be all right.

-What are you doing here?
-Helping your girlfriend.

Haven't you two done enough?

-We can go now.
-Not a moment too soon.

What were you doing in there?

I'm starting to think
that girl doesn't like me.

One of those mermaids was here.

I know.
Did she do anything to you?

She just said she could make me normal.

Can they do that?

-[Zac] I don't know.
-What happened here?

[sighs] Sorry, Carly.
It was my fault.

I'll take care of that.
I'll take care of that.

-Don't sweat it.
-No, no, no, it's okay.

Why don't you go
and make Evie another juice?

All right. Knock yourself out.

[Zac] Why don't you take a step--

See, it becomes second nature
after a while.

[Sirena] You're back.

-How'd it go with Evie?
-We're working on it.

Working on what?

Mimmi can do things
you can't even imagine.

So why couldn't you
make Zac lose his tail?

The boy's connection to Mako
must be protecting him.

And Evie's change is recent.

She hasn't had enough time
to develop her defenses.

How's this?

It's perfect.

How is that stuff gonna turn Evie back?

Watch and learn.

Imagine this apple is Evie.


Told you she was good.

[Mimmi] And mermaid...
turns back... to land girl.

So how are you gonna get
Evie to come here?

We're not.
The subject can be anywhere

as long as I have their essence.

Northern Pod mermaids
know the best spells.

Northern Pod.
Aren't they supposed to be dangerous?

We can be.

You hungry?
How about a prawn salad for lunch?

With extra prawns.


What is that?


It's following you.

About the other night--

What's that?


[Evie yelps]

-She... She's a mermaid.
-[Zac] Yes, I know.

This isn't a complication.
This is a disaster.

We have to get her out of sight.
Cam, do something.

-Like what?
-I don't know. Distract them.

Please. I have to hide Evie.

Who wants to go to a party?

'Cause... it's my birthday
and you're all invited.

Even... those of you I don't know

[stuttering] because a stranger is just
a friend you haven't met yet.

-[indistinct chatter]
-There's gonna be, uh--

There's good music and...
and food...

and clowns.

No, no, no.
There's a slippery slide

and there's puppies and there's kittens
and streamers...

-a little horse and a jumping castle...
-[man] Lame.

-...and, uh--
-[woman] Boring!

You know, music, techno usually,

and some dance stuff as well.
Balloons falling from the ceiling.

And... I hope to see you all there.

Uh, it's not your birthday.

It will be...

in four months
and three weeks and three days.

-He's finally flipped.
-[Cam] Please, it's gonna be--

It's gonna be a great party, everybody.

It's just gonna be a lot of fun
and there's lots of, you know...

It'll be a great bonding--
Okay, party's canceled.

[Zac struggling]

-What's happening to me?
-I don't know.

Here we go.

Zac, do something!

Close your eyes.

What was that?

I don't know.

At least I got half of you back.

I don't want to be half-fish, half-person.

That's worse than being full-fish!

[knocking on door]

What's going on?

[Zac] Stay there!
You can't come in.

-Why not?
-[Zac] Just don't!

Someone's trying to block the spell.


She hasn't had enough time
to master her powers.

Zac has.

Fight him.

Stop! You'll make it worse!

[Evie gasping]


-What have you done to her?
-Hey, it's not Zac.

It's those mermaids, the new ones.

What is this doing to Evie?

Restoring her back to normal.

Then why is Zac blocking it?

Do you want her fixed or not?

There's something wrong.

You have done this with
something other than fruit, right?


What's happening?

The mermaid said
they were gonna fix me!

If that's what they're trying,
it's definitely not working.

Cam, go outside and make sure
no one comes in.

While you stay here and do what?

Just guard the door, please!

Just so you know, I'm doing this for Evie.

Have you ever seen anything like this?

Whatever it is, it's not on our menu.

Where's Evie?

-What have you done to her?
-She's in there, isn't she?

Sorry, it's off-limits...
especially to you.

If you don't step out of my way,
I'll turn you into sandwich tuna.

[Zac] Did you do this?

Of course not.

Mimmi's in Rita's grotto casting a spell.

It's supposed to turn Evie back.

Well it's... not working.

I'm going over there to stop them.

Enough's enough.
What's going on?

Don't leave.

-Do you mind? I need strawberries.
-There's none in there.

I was in there 30 minutes ago
and there was plenty.

-A lot can happen in 30 minutes.
-What is up with you today?

Someone's coming in!

-[breathing heavily]
-I'm on it.

I'm still here.

This stuff must be blocking my powers.

Please don't go in there.
Evie's in there.

She's... kind of upset.

[sighs] I was sworn to secrecy, okay?
But... Zac and Evie had a fight.

When? I didn't see them fighting,

and I'd be the first to know.
I'm her best friend.

Carly, what's the holdup?
We've got customers waiting.

I can't get in the cool room.
Evie's there.

She's had a fight with Zac.
What was it about?

Well, you know what Zac's like.
He can be difficult sometimes...

and demanding and jealous and insecure.

Zac's not like that.

Appearances can be deceiving.

What if I'm stuck like this forever?

Don't let yourself think like that.

I'll find a way to fix this, I promise.

[exasperated groan]

-Is Evie crying?
-I told you she was upset.

We should go in
and make sure she's okay.

I've been trying, but he won't let me.

Evie can't see anyone right now,
especially Carly.

Me? Why?

She's trying to spare you her pain.

Whatever you are doing, stop!

Don't you want your girlfriend restored?

You are just burying her
under a pile of pink goop.

Stop it right now!

This spell has to run its course.

Look, it's not working.

Evie's stuck inside the café cool room

and any minute now someone's
gonna walk in and see she has a tail.

Doesn't that worry you?

I don't care what Evie said.
She needs me.

[Cam] I promised.
[Carly] Cam, get out of the way!

Move! What is your problem? Ugh!

-Maybe he's right.
-We don't answer to land boys.

-Stop... or I'll make it stop.

Let her in.

It's stuck. Help me.

[both struggling]


[both groaning]

[tails slapping]

Are you okay?

Yeah. Fine.

Cam said you and Zac were fighting.

[Cam] It was bad.

That's what you said.

Yeah, um...
worst fight ever.

What? Why didn't you tell me?

[Evie] It was... It was nothing.

Really, um...

I overreacted.

I've decided to forgive him.

[Carly] That's great.

You and Zac are a pin-up couple.

-You've so much in common.
-[Evie] More than you know.

I'd officially like to proclaim this...

as the worst day of my life.

Well, it's over and you're okay.

Thanks to you.

Have you noticed it yet?

Noticed what?

Well, there's fresh crayfish
in front of you.

And all you want is fruit.

Do you think this means I'm cured?



-[tail slaps]


I guess you're stuck
like that a little while longer.

[Ondina] What are you doing here?

I was out swimming
and decided to drop in.

I'm so glad you're okay.

I am now.

No thanks to you two
and that stunt with the goop.

Do you want to lose your tail, or not?

We were only trying to help you.

Well, it didn't work,
so don't do it again.

You have my word on that.

I want theirs as well.

Next time you try something,

tell me about it
and we'll work on it together.

Why should we?

You want me to keep
your secret, don't you?
