[Mimmi] Tonight's a full moon.

-Why aren't you singing?
-I keep thinking about the pod.

Have they moved north?
Will I ever see my sister again?

Of course you'll see Aquata.

The pod will never return to Mako

as long as Zac can activate
the merman chamber.

But he promised us we'd be safe.

Zac doesn't know what will happen.
None of us do.

Which is why we have to make sure
he doesn't go there tonight.

How can we stop him?

You're his sister.
Talk to him.

Make him see that
what he's doing is too risky.

Zac wants to know what the chamber is for.
I can't change his mind about that.

So that's our plan?

Sit back, let him start it up
and hope for the best?

[Mimmi] No.

I go with him,
to make sure things don't go wrong.

-I think it would be safer if we all go.

Let's take some music and snacks,
have a party.

I had a plan.

When you come up with something better,
let me know.


The mermaid council have been
contemplating the events on Mako.

We've been doing our best
to make it safe for the pod,

but it hasn't been easy.

The boy was determined to discover
how to activate the chamber.

And has he?


But don't worry, I've got a plan
to keep him away from there tonight.


Let him go there
and follow him.


We think there may be a way
to destroy the merman chamber.

Once the chamber is operating,

use your power to turn
its energy back on itself.

We believe this is the only way
to ensure its complete destruction.

Only the boy can start the chamber.
He must go there.

As long as it exists,
it will be a threat.

Do it, Ondina, tonight,
or our chance will be lost.

Mimmi will not go against her brother,

and Sirena's connections
to the land are strong,

but you were the one who always
believed you could save Mako.

Well, now you can.

All right.

-On one condition.
-This is not a negotiation.

Do you want me to go or not?


What is this condition?

We're no longer banished.

Mimmi, Sirena and I
get to come back to the pod.

When it is safe
for the pod to return home...

your banishment will be lifted.

But only when the chamber is destroyed.

I like physics. I always come out
of class feeling much smarter.

Well, tell Mr. Johnson that.
It'll make his day.

Zac, can I have a word, please?

I'll see you guys later.

Let me guess, you don't want me
to go to the chamber tonight.

-Well, you're wasting your time.

Look, it's your decision, of course,

but there is something
you should know first.

The chamber was built
in the time of the Merman Wars

to strike terror into mermaids
and to win the war against them.

Wait, so you know what it does?

I know it's a weapon to be feared.

Oh, come on, you know me.
I would never use it to hurt anyone.

The merman who built the chamber
decided not to activate it

despite many who wanted him to.

He fell in love with a mermaid.

Because of her,

he changed his mind and
the chamber was never used.

Together they formed
a powerful royal alliance

and they ruled the seas
to ensure peace, not war.

Well, what's that to do with me?

Your mother, Nerissa, is descended
from that merman and mermaid.

Your ancestors decided
not to activate the chamber.

Do you really think you know better?


[Erik] What did Rita want?

Let me guess,
it was about the chamber.

Don't activate it, right?


-She's scared of what it might do.
-Of course she is.

So what's the best way to conquer fear?


Find out what we're really dealing with.


You, me, mermen.

This is your destiny, Zac.
You've got to do it.

-It's not that simple.
-Why not?

You're the man.
Nobody else can do this but you.

Your whole life
has been leading to this point.

You have to do it.

When I do it, if I do it,
it's my call.

But it won't be tonight.

[singing] ♪ I lose myself
every time I see your face ♪

♪ I wait around ♪

♪ It seems that
there is no other way ♪

♪ The time has come
to work it out ♪

♪ Oh-- ♪

Wow. Nice.

What happened?
You couldn't sing like that before.

Not to say that you were a bad singer,
just that...

you're way better now
than you were before.

I've been taking lessons.
No big deal.

[Sirena] You're buying the juices?

How come?

I'm just trying to say sorry
for getting upset before.

You never say sorry.

So, now I am.

If Zac wants to find out
about the chamber, maybe you're right.

We should let him.

You never change your mind either.

That's not entirely true.

She used to say mermen were the enemy.

Zac will go to Mako whatever we do,
but you shouldn't go.

The chamber was built
for mermen, not mermaids.

He's my brother,
I won't let him go alone.

Mimmi, don't be stupid.

Stop trying to talk me out of it
because you can't.

[Ondina sighs]

Hey, I was just coming
to take your order.

The usual. Whatever.

Why are you so down?
You should be happy.

About what?

Zac's gone cold about Mako tonight.

You mean he's not going?

So he says.

What are you doing here?
I don't recall inviting you.

What happened?
Get cold feet?


Erik told me you're not going
to the chamber tonight.

What happened to
the big brave merman

who said he could handle
anything it dished out?

[scoffs] So you want me to go now?

You're always saying it's the only way
we'll know what the place can do.

You have changed your tune.

-I'm big enough to admit I was wrong.
-So am I.

And I think it's too dangerous.

You can't know that for certain.

If you're the only one that can
start the chamber, you have to do it.

You can't just leave it there.

It seems like my ancient relative did.


According to Rita, I'm a direct descendant
of the merman who built the place.

And he chose not to use it,
so I'm guessing he's a smart guy.

That doesn't mean
you have to do what he did.

No, but I'd be stupid
not to think about it.

You care about Mimmi, don't you?

What's this got to do with Mimmi?

The pod can never come home
as long as the chamber is a threat.

Only you can give her
back the life she had.

You don't think she deserves that?

You know the code to start the chamber.
That's why you have to use it.

For Mimmi.

Fine, do nothing.

Just don't expect her to be happy
to see you next time.

If I go, I go alone.

If Mimmi finds out, or Evie,
they'll want to come, too.

It's too risky.
I don't want them there.

I'll make sure they stay away.

Erik, too.

[door closes]

[indistinct conversations]

I can't believe you changed
your mind about going.

[Evie] Just be relieved he did.
[Ondina] Exactly.

I, um... like Sirena's dress.
Don't you?

It was so sudden.

I can't help thinking
something's happened.

-[Evie] Like what?
-Like nothing.

Nothing's happened.

[Zac] Actually, it has.

Rita told me that Mimmi and I
are descendant from merman royalty.

-[gasps softly]
-Do I have to call you "princess" now?

Mermaids abandoned
royalty centuries ago.

We're not starting it up again now.

Our ancestors ended the wars
by choosing not to use the chamber.

I think they had the right idea.

Maybe they did.

Well, Your Majesty,
would you like to get the drinks?


Full moon's rising.
Shouldn't we be headed to Mako soon?

I want to be there when you start it up.

We know the code.

Nope, not going.

-Five tropical juices, thanks.

-All your hard work's been wasted, Cam.
-You're kidding. Why?

It's not too late to change your mind.

It's my decision, not yours, okay?


Evening. Welcome.
It's great to see you all here.

Put your hands together, folks,
for Sirena.

[water bubbling]

[stones rumbling]

[song continues]

Zac's in the chamber.
I had a vision.

Where's Ondina?

I can't see her.

[song ends]


Zac's on Mako.
We have to go, now.

What do I tell David?

Sorry, I can't stay.

What? Why?

-It's her throat.
-[hoarsely] Yeah, right. It's really sore.

-[Evie] We have to get her home.
-I'm so sorry.

Well, you can't help being sick.

Go get better!

This is a disaster.

I've got a café full of people

and Sirena just went home
with a sore throat.

Get Carly to sing.

[David scoffs]

[David] Seriously?
[Cam] Yeah, yeah. She's great.

It's got to be better
than turning everyone away.

You're on.


Sirena's gone home with a sore throat
and Cam says you're pretty good.

-Oh, well, I've had some lessons, but--

You'll be great, go for it.

You really mean that?

Sure. Knock 'em dead.



I can't do this without you.

[David] Sorry, folks, but Sirena's
gone home with a sore throat.

But I do have a small surprise for you.

Please give a big
Ocean Café welcome to Carly.


Whoo! Go, Carly!

Stop! Don't touch it.
Move away.

What are you doing here?
We had a deal I'd come alone.

You want to protect Mimmi?
So do I, and all mermaids.

I've always said I'd do that.

Well, you might not have a choice.

-It's time to destroy this place.

[Mimmi] Ondina.

-[Evie] Don't hurt Zac!
-I won't if he gets out of the way!

Zac, you said you weren't coming here.

Why did you follow him?

I'm doing as Veridia instructed.

You saw Veridia?

She told me if I destroy the chamber,
the pod can return.

[Sirena] But we're banished.
[Ondina] Not anymore.

Veridia agreed that if I do this,
the banishment is lifted.

[Erik] No! We need to know
what this place is for.

How many times do I have to say it?
It's too dangerous!

What if you destroy Mako?


[Mimmi] The mermaid council
doesn't know what this place does.

No one does.

Or what will happen
if you try to destroy it.

Veridia said it was the only way.

How do you know she's right?

The mermaid council discussed it.
They said it would work!

And what if they're wrong?

My ancestor didn't destroy the chamber.
Don't you wonder why?

[Sirena] You can't risk it, Ondina.

[voice breaking] I want the pod back.
I want to go home.

We all do,
so don't put it at risk.

Do it, Zac!
Take the Trident.

-I'm sorry, Evie. I have to.

But you need to go.
I'm not going to do it unless you're safe.

Zac, we don't have time!

I'm not leaving you.

[Evie] I'm staying, too.


We need to go.

[Mimmi] Why didn't you tell us
about Veridia?

Forget that. We just got told
how to activate the chamber.

Am I right, Zac?

Yeah, we need the Trident.

-We need to bring the real one.
-[Erik] Great.

Where do we get it?

We can't. It's gone.

It was broken, destroyed.

But we're so close.

Forget it, Erik. It's over.

♪ Nothing ever changes ♪

♪ Won't you show me anyway? ♪

♪ Baby, won't you
stay here anyway? ♪


That was incredible.


Awesome, amazing and brilliant.

I couldn't have done it without you.

Without the Trident,
the chamber can never be activated.

So you think Mako is safe now?


However, you took a great risk
going there tonight.

[sighs] I'm sorry I lied, but I thought
I was doing the right thing.

I'm just glad this chamber business
is over for good.

I still have to tell Veridia
what happened tomorrow.

I guess we'll still be banished.
I'm sorry.

You did what you did for us,
so we'll face her together.

[Veridia] You did not complete your task
as I instructed.

[Ondina] I know, but the chamber can't
be started without the Trident.

So Mako is safe.

And it's safe for the pod to come home.

Does that mean
we're no longer banished?

It is never wise
to disobey the mermaid council.


your banishment has ended.


When can the pod come home?

It will take some time to gather them,

but by the next full moon
Mako will be ours again.
