Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 2, Episode 6 - Stormy Seas - full transcript

Evie wants Zac to work things out with Cam. Lifeguard Cam is left in charge of the beach... and Ned, the boss' son. Erik asks David about Zac and Cam's relationship. Sirena gives Evie lessons on using her mermaid powers much to the disdain of Ondina. Erik questions Cam about his lost friendship with Zac while dealing with the bothersome Ned. Ondina challenges Sirena to a mermaid powers tug-of-war and insults Rita's teaching skills. Erik is forced to jump into the ocean when Ned causes him to be doused with water. When Cam and Ned don't see him resurface, Cam goes out to look for him. Erik reveals himself to be safe and a merman to Cam. Unfortunately, Ned and his father are convinced that Erik is missing in the surf when Cam returns to the beach without him. Sirena and Ondina decide to go best two-out-of-three and use heavy mermaid powers causing a storm outside. When the winner is victorious, the girls stop using their powers and the weather suddenly clears. Zac sees Erik at the Ocean Café and asks him to go show himself at the beach to keep Cam out of hot water.

I'll be with you guys in a sec.

Nice day.


Catch you later.

See you.

When are you two gonna work it out?


Well, you know...

what happened on Mako.

[Zac] There's nothing to talk about.

[David] Okay, what can I get you guys?

[Evie] The usual to go. Thanks.

Hey, Cam. Down here, mate.

What's up, boss?

I've got a local Area Command meeting.

Think you can look after the beach
while I'm gone?

I'm your man.

It's a lot of responsibility.

You can count on me.
I'm ready for any emergency.

Good. Good.


Because I'd also like you
to keep an eye on Ned for me.

Ned, you and Cam are in charge
of the beach while I'm gone.

So, Ned, what do you reckon
about being a lifesaver?



Hey, Zac. Can I get you something
before I finish up?

[sighing] It's okay.
I'll wait for someone else.

Zac want his usual?

He didn't say.

No, it'll be a fish burger.

Used to be Zac was a hamburger man.
Then overnight, it's all fish.

Sounds like you know him pretty well.

[laughs] Not as well as Cam.

They used to hang out as kids
all the time.

That changed overnight, too.

What happened?

It must have been something major.

-Any idea what?

I heard it was something on Mako.

-Well, that's what I heard.

They used to go camping there a lot.

So, something happened there?

Why are you so interested?

Just curious.

Look, whatever happened,
Zac and Cam kept it to themselves.

[Sirena] Okay, keep your wrist relaxed.

Move it a bit more to the right. Bit more.


Now think of pulling
the canoe towards you.

Come on.

Come on.



It's okay, don't apologize.
You just need more practice.


-How did you do that?
-I had a very good teacher.

And I had an excellent student.

I look forward to seeing your progress
when I get back.

So, no pressure then.

You'll get it.
Now relax and focus.

[Ned] Look up.
Coming through, coming through.

What are you doing?
What are you doing?

I was marking out the safe swimming area
and the castle got in the way.

-[woman] It's fine.

Why? Dad left us in charge.

Because I said so.

You can't tell me what to do.

-[boy crying]
-[woman] It's fine. It's fine.

It's okay, come on.
Let's go. Grab your things.

-Sorry about that.
-It's fine. Just leave it.

Plenty more sand on the beach, right?


Hey, you decided to join up.
Good man.

Uh, I'm still thinking about it.

Actually, I wanted to ask you about Zac.

What's there to know?
An ex-friend. End of story.

Hey, Cam?

Yes, Ned?

I was out of line before.

See, that's what I like about this job.

Do you want to say sorry, mate?

Yeah, I'm sorry you got all wet.

Hey, don't! Stop it! Cut it out! Stop it!

Cut it! Stop, stop, stop!
Stop it! Cut it out!

[Ned] Hey!

Give me that!

You can have this when your dad gets back.

Now do something useful
and bring those surf skis up.


What was that about respect?

[sighs] I'm never gonna get this.

I felt the same way when I started.
You'll get there.

What are you doing?

Teaching Evie to use her powers.

What's the point?
She won't have them for much longer.

You've figured out a way
to change me back?

I was discussing a principle,
not a time frame.

So while she's got her powers,
she may as well know what to do with them.

And what makes you such an expert?

I have a moon ring just like you.

Now relax and concentrate
on seeing the canoe in your mind.

David said that you and Zac
used to be buddies.

Well, David's got a big mouth.

So what happened?

-[woman] Ow.
-Ned, watch it!


Sorry, miss. You okay?

All right, I'm finished.
What do I do now?

Why don't you help that kid
rebuild his sandcastle?


Because you knocked it over.

And because you can show him
how it's really done.

You're an expert, right?

Didn't you win a sandcastle
building competition last year?

I beat 30 other kids.

I guess I could give him some tips.

Hey, kid, let me show you how it's done.

Putty in my hands.

[Sirena] Visualize the canoe
gliding across the water.

I am.

If you imagine it moving, it will.

That's what Rita taught me.

Is that how you got your moon ring?
From Rita?

Yeah, so?

I'm sure she's a good teacher,

but Mimmi and I
got our moon rings from the pod.

Our teachers were experts.

And where do you think Rita trained?

She abandoned the pod years ago.
Training methods have moved on.

Did they even know about

the magical properties
of sea nettles back then?


I think you'll find that Rita knows
just as much as any teacher in the pod.

-Maybe more.
-I very much doubt that.

-[Mimmi] Ondina!
-Are you saying...

I'm not good enough to teach?

I don't know what your skills are.

I'd be more than happy to show you.

Then we're going to need
something a little bit more challenging

than that canoe.

You need to be easygoing in this job.
I try to be everybody's friend.

Except Zac's.
What happened between you two?

You'd have to ask him.

Not easy to do
when he's always out on Mako.

What's so special about that place?

I don't know.
Seriously, you'd have to ask him.

What are you doing with that?

Uh, I need it to fill the castle's moat.

Well, you can't just take it.

-Give it to me.
-Hey, let go!

Do you want me to tell your dad
you didn't behave?

-Hand it over, you little...

Sorry, Erik.

Any more instances like this
and I'll ban you from the beach.

Why did he dive in
with all his clothes on?

Probably couldn't wait
to get away from you.

Where is he?

He's got to be out there somewhere.

He's not coming up.
I reckon he's in trouble.

[Ondina] This is an ancient mermaid game.

Yeah, a game.
Right, Ondina?

Whoever pulls the ship to their side first
is the winner.

So it's like a tug-of-war without a rope?



[water bubbling]

Is she allowed to do that bubble stuff?

A mermaid can use whatever powers she has.

It just took me by surprise, that's all.

Shall we go again?

Why not?
I enjoy winning.

Can you see him?


He's got to be out there.

I'll call Dad.


I'll take the surf ski out.


Where is he?

Looking for me?


What is this, contagious?
You've got a tail, too! How?

[laughs] I've always been like this.


But why didn't you tell me?

-Just calm down, Cam.
-[breathes deeply]

Take a breath
or I'll be the one rescuing you.

Get down.
People will see you.

Chill, okay?
I've been doing this a long time.

Ned, get down from there.
Where's Cam?

He's rescuing some guy.

There he is!

I can't see anything.
Get down.

Am I the only one around here
who doesn't have a tail?

Like you keep saying,
you'd have to ask Zac.

Catch you later.

[Cam] Ugh! Great!

Can you see him, Dad?

He's over there, right next to Cam.

What guy? I can only see Cam.

[water bubbling]

[Evie] Come on, Sirena!
You can do it!

[Evie] That's it.

[Evie] You did it.

That was awesome.

Maybe Rita taught her
better than you thought.

That was a fluke.

Then how about the best of three?

[Ned] You left him?

No, I didn't find him.

Yes, you did. I saw you
talking to him through the binoculars.

Was there someone out there?


Cam, you know the procedure.
You should have towed him in.

I... I didn't find him.

Then who were you talking to?

No one! He's mistaken.

There's nothing wrong with his eyes.

Look, Erik, I know him.

He's a good swimmer,
really strong over long distance.

He's probably around the bluff.

But you don't know for sure
because you didn't see him, right?

I guess.

What's wrong with you, Cam?

This is Mick Connolly, Main Beach.
A boy's gone missing in the water.

Tell Area Command we're starting a search.

[man on radio] Copy that.


You've won a round each.
Isn't that enough?

No! She still thinks
Rita's a lousy teacher.

Don't take it personally.
It's not your fault Rita's out of touch.

Let's go.

[wind howling]

-[water bubbling]
-[Evie] What's happening?

-[thunder rumbling]
-[electricity buzzing]

[thunder rumbling]

We better find that guy quick.

Where's that chopper?

There's a storm brewing.
If it moves in, it won't be safe to fly.

[rain falling]

[Evie] Come on, Sirena!

[boat creaking]

[radio jingle playing]

[newscaster] And now, some breaking news
from the beach this hour.

A search is underway for a teenage boy

believed to be missing in the surf
off South Beach.

Witnesses say he went in fully clothed.

Lifeguards are doing their best
to find the boy,

but bad weather
is hampering rescue efforts.

-Good luck, guys.
-[thunder rumbling]

[thunder crashing]

[weather calming]

[Evie] That was incredible.

I've never seen anyone
make lightning inside.

[all laughing]

[chuckles softly]

What happened to the storm?

[Zac] Did you hear about the search?

What search?

Ah, there's a guy lost in the surf.
It's a full-scale search and rescue.

Well, that sounds pretty serious.

Yeah, he just...

Apparently he just disappeared,
fully clothed.

Cam will have his hands full.

I'm going to head down there,
see how things are looking.

Yeah, well, let me know what happens.


Don't worry about it.
I'm the one who disappeared.

I got splashed and had to dive in.
Cam paddled out after me.

He saw me.

-So he knows you're a--
-I didn't want him to worry about me.

You know there's a full-scale search on?

But Cam knows I'm all right.
Why didn't he call the search off?

How can he call the search off?
You've got to get back down there.


As far as anyone else knows,
Cam let a guy disappear on his watch.

He's in deep trouble if you don't show up.

Why do you care?
You aren't friends anymore.

What happened between me and Cam
is none of your business.

You need to get down there.

[Mick] Over here!

You two go to the south and search
off the break along the foreshore.

The others can go to the north.

Do you know how much trouble
I'm in because of you?

I can make it go away.


Follow me.

[Mick] Station Command, we need
as many people out here as you can spare.

[Sirena] Sorry about the lightning.
I got a bit carried away.

We were never taught how to do lightning.

Actually, it's quite simple.

You started the storm,
so I just turned it back on you.

Rita always said, "Why use your own powers
when you can use your opponent's?"

So, do you now agree that I deserve
my moon ring just as much as you?

Face it, Ondina.
She beat you fair and square.

-It was pretty funny when you went over.
-[all chuckling]

You looked like a sea turtle
stuck on your back.

[groans] Okay, fine.
Rita's a good teacher.

A what?

A very good teacher.

And I did not look like a beached turtle.

-A beached whale.

[all laughing]

If I'm not back soon,
they're going to send a chopper after me.

A few more seconds and I'll be dry.

My first time in charge is a disaster.

They'll soon forget that.


Because you're going to be a hero.

Bill, Theo, go to the clubhouse
and get the RIB.

Anyone seen Cam?

Great, just what I need,
a missing lifeguard.

Ah, Zac, come to help.
Good man.

Dad! Dad, it's him.
The guy who went missing.

HQ, the boy's been found.
Everybody stand down.

[man on radio] Copy that.

Where did you find him?

-Uh, it's my fault.

I was swimming too far out
and got caught in a rip.

Then that storm hit.

Thought I was a goner, but Cam found me.

Dragged me to shore
around the bluff and...

he saved my life.

[Mick] Guess I owe you an apology.

Any lifeguard would have done the same.

Well, guys, three cheers for our hero.

Hey, Zac?

You could have told me
Erik was one of you.

Yeah, I could have.

But I didn't know
what you'd do about it.

Why do you think I'd do anything?

Yeah, well, that's the thing, Cam.
I don't know what you'd do anymore.

Hey, hero. Can I buy a juice
for the man who just saved my life?

You're on.

See you later.

Are things cool between you and Zac?

[Cam] Long story.

-I'll spring for a burger too.
-[Cam laughs]

You can do it.
Just relax and focus.

[stammering] Did you see that?

It moved! I did it!

I told you!

It was just like you said.
I imagined it and it happened.

Well done.
Try it again.

Looks like you've made a lot of progress.

You could say that.

Sirena's been showing us
some of the things you've taught her.

I might have passed on a tip or two.

She showed us the lightning inside thing.

She's always been good at that.

[Ondina] Is it difficult to learn?

I'm sure you could,
if you put your mind to it.

Would you teach me?

Of course.

[Evie] Do you want to see?
