[Ondina] It was wrong of us
not to come to you for permission first.

How could you run away like that?
We had no idea what had happened to you.

I'm sorry, Veridia.

We just wanted a chance
to save Mako.

-And have you?
-We've made a lot of progress.

Two cycles of the moon
have passed since you left,

and the land boy still has his powers.

It was never going to be easy.

We've had to study him first

to see how the island
has connected with him.

We've learned so much,
and you know how powerful Mimmi is.

[dull explosion]

Oh, sorry.

As far as lessons go,
that was pretty much a waste of time.

I was trying to concentrate, really.
I just...

I can't stop thinking about Ondina.

Me, too.

The mermaid council
are going to be so angry.

They'll make us come home.
I know it.

There were always going to be consequences
to your decision to run away.

[Sirena] It's not just the running away.

How's Ondina going to explain
Erik and Evie?

Maybe she won't tell them.

It would be most unwise
to lie to the mermaid council.

Is there anything else we should know
before we make our decision?


except Mako's our home.

It's beautiful and special.

We can't give it up without a fight.

[whispering] We should
give her another chance.

Perhaps there's something to it.

[mermaid] I agree.

I truly believe that Mako is lost.

Nothing you can say
will change my mind on that.


I have been outvoted.

The pod has decided
that if there is any chance at all

that you can break
the merman's connection to Mako,

you must try.

You have until the next full moon.


Do you understand?

Yes, Veridia.

Thank you.
You won't regret this.

That was awesome.

I'm Neptina, but the pod
calls me Neppy.

Did you really run away
to save Mako?

It's our home.
Someone had to fight for it.

Everyone says how amazing
Mimmi's powers are,

but I bet there's no way
she could do this without you.

It's going to be really tough, and sure,
Mimmi and Sirena are there to help,

but every fight needs a leader.

[Neptina laughs]

I better go, and you should
be at mermaid school.

Lessons are so boring
compared to what you're doing.

Don't worry, Neppy.

It may take a while,
but Mako will be ours again.

How did it go?

We're going back, aren't we?

They've given us until
the next full moon.

[both laughing]

Well, what did they say
about Erik and Evie?

You did tell them, didn't you?

I just didn't get around to it.


I told them what they needed to know,
enough to let us stay.

That's what counts.

[Mimmi] Sirena!


You shouldn't be alone
this far from your pod.

You have legs?

They're so weird looking.

What are you doing here?

"Who is she?" would be a better question.

Neptina. Neppy.
She's from the pod.

I told you to go back to mermaid school.

You also said it was going to be
a really tough fight to save Mako,

because you've only got
Mimmi and Sirena to help.

You're the leader,
so I've come to volunteer.

Put me to work.
Let me be part of this.

You're the leader?

And we're just the help?

-That's not what I said.

Neppy, you can't stay.

You have to go back to the pod.

But I want to save Mako.

You're going home.

[sighs] No way I could swim
that far again tonight.

I'm hungry and I'm tired.

I don't even know
how I kept up with you, Ondina.

You're so fast.

We could at least
give her something to eat.


But if you're going to come in,
you'll need legs.

This feels strange.

It's all we've got.
You look fine.

No, these legs, they're weird.

I see why land people
like to cover them up.

So, what is this place?

Who lives here?

Don't touch anything!

[Poseidon meows]


[meowing continues]

Oh, it's a cat.

It's coming for us!

[Sirena] Poseidon won't hurt you.

-[meowing continues]
-There are cats everywhere on land.

I'll understand
if you're too scared to stay.

I'm fine.

[Poseidon growling]

Sit there.

Looks like you've got
your own one-mermaid fan club.

I had no idea
she would follow me.

Well, she's your problem.

Mimmi and I have to collect ingredients
for our next lesson,

so we'll leave you to babysit.

If that's all right with you,
O Great Leader?

That is not what I said.


Are they going to look for the merman?
Can I go?


It's very important that we don't
reveal ourselves to the land people.

Mimmi and Sirena
have had a lot of practice.

You haven't, so just...

sit there and don't touch anything.

I'll get you something to eat
and then you're leaving.

Neppy, I brought you some food.

Crayfish and prawns.


Neppy, this isn't funny.
Where are you?

[Poseidon purring]

[Poseidon meowing]

[tail slapping]

Ready for your next delivery?

Yeah. I'm completely out of fuel.
Can you load up while I fill up?

-Yeah, no problem.

Late again.

I'll help.

You were meant to
have been helping since 7:00.

-Where have you been?
-I went for a swim and lost track of time.

Is that Erik speak for "I slept in"?

It means I went for a swim.

I always feel at home in the water.

Well, while you were out having fun,
I was in the café on my own.

Don't stress. I'm here now.
I'll take that.

Oh, it's Mr. Helpful all of a sudden?
Thanks, but I've got it.

[Carly] Erik, give me the box.

Okay, all good.

Did you untie the rope?

Maybe David didn't tie it properly.

It's out of fuel.
That's why David left.

Jump in and tow us back.

-You're the swimmer.

Is there a problem?

There you go. Enjoy.

[Carly] Help! Somebody help!

[Evie] That's Carly.

[Cam] And Erik.

Help! Somebody help us!


Why can't you go in the water?

Whatever happened to,

"I always feel at home
when I'm in the water"?

My ear's hurting.

-After my swim, it's hurting.

I don't want to make it worse.

Why can't you go in?

Without my swimmers?

Oh, my.

What are you doing?

Uh, old tennis injury.

I've been looking for you everywhere.

You can't just take off like that, Neppy--

Look, I trapped the merman!

-[sighs] Neppy!

You've trapped the wrong one.

Come on, paddle.

Saltwater's good for sore hands.

Erik can't go in. They're trapped.
We have to help them.

Not here in front of everyone!

You got a better idea?

[Carly breathing heavily]

This is going on my blog.

[Carly gasps]

[Neptina] That girl up there,
she's got powers.

She's a mermaid, too?

What's happening?

Why are we moving?

Uh, must be the current.

Lucky for you.
This is still going on my blog.

[Neptina] What pod is she from?

She's not from a pod.

Every mermaid comes from a pod.

She's only a part-time mermaid.

She's a land girl?

Look, I have to go and sort this out,
and you have to stay here.

Don't move, please.

-Hey, what happened?
-Nothing. Delivery is ready to go.

-Oh, thanks, Erik.
-No problem.

You have to be kidding me.

I'm so sorry.

That wasn't meant to happen.

Who's the kid?

She's from our pod.

She's not even meant to be here.

You need to keep her under control.

I'm trying, believe me.

[Neptina] How come there are two mermen?

How did a land girl get powers?

-That is none of your business.
-Why didn't you tell the mermaid council?

Neppy, we know you're only trying to help,
but we're dealing with a lot here.

The merman and the land girl
are our friends.

How's that going to help
the pod come home?

It's complicated,
and you're too young to understand!

No, I'm not. Tell me.

Look, our job's tough enough as it is

without having to babysit some hatchling
who's only going to cause us trouble!

I might be a child,
but I'm not a liar.

I thought what you were doing here
was so amazing, but I was wrong.


Nice work.


[Mimmi] She's going back to the pod.

She'll tell the mermaid council

I guess that's it for us.

[Ondina] I don't think
she's going back to the pod.

Neppy loves Mako.

She wants to save it
as much as we do.

She knows that if she tells on us,
we'll never get Mako back.

So what are we going to do?

Find her... fast.

Just because she's not
going back to the pod

doesn't mean she won't
get herself into more trouble.

[boys chatting and laughing]

[boy 1] Well, come on.

[boy 2] Hey, get out of it.

[boy 3] What are you doing?

-[boy 2] Stop splashing me!

-[boys laughing]

[Mimmi] What if she's gone
back to the pod?

[Ondina] She hasn't.

[Sirena] And you'd know
'cause you're so good with people?

All right, I admit it.
I treated her badly.

Neppy's just a kid,
and I let her think I was this big hero.

I'm going back out.

If we're going to keep searching,
then we could use some help.

We can't ask Erik,
not after the way Neppy trapped him.

Erik's wasn't the one
I was thinking of.

We've already been out searching,
but so far, there's no sign of her.

Neppy's young
and she doesn't know your world.

I realize it's a big thing to ask,
and we're not exactly--

Of course we'll help you.

What's the plan?

You guys head north. Evie and I
will split up and take the area south.

We'll meet up in two hours.

[boy exclaims]

Oi! Hey, hey! Hey, guys,
there's something under the jetty.

Check it out.

Did you feel that?
Something just swam past my legs!

There it is again! Shark!

-[gasps] You're the merman!

It's okay.
I'm here to help you.

Get away from me.

Neppy, if you stay here,
you'll get caught.

Do you want to spend the rest of your life
in a tank being peered at by land people?

Come on.

We're going upstairs to get some food.
Do you want anything?

Eat if you want.
I'm going out again.

If anything's happened to Neppy,
it's my fault.

That's not true.

Look who I found.


[Ondina] You had us worried sick.

I'm sorry, but Zac found me.

He's not so bad,

for a land boy.

-[all laughing]

I'm so sorry
for what I said to you before, Neppy.

It was really unfair,

because what you did with Erik
was so brave and clever.

I'm sorry I was so much trouble.

Well, you are a handful,

but people probably
say the same thing about me.

-[Mimmi] Just one or two.
-[both laughing]

So can I stay and help you save Mako?

[Rita] Neppy,

I'm sorry, but you're too young
to be away from the pod.

Anyway, you have to
get back to mermaid school.

There's still so much
you need to learn.

And when Mako is ours again,

we're going to need brave, clever mermaids
like you to help defend it.

I won't tell the mermaid council
about your secrets.

They don't know how hard
you're fighting to save Mako.

I want you... to have this.

[Neptina gasps]

I love it.

I always wanted a big sister.

And when you're ready,

I'll swim back home with you,
right up to the edge of the pod.

[Neptina] Thanks for everything.

[Rita] Travel safe, both of you.
