Mako Mermaids: episode guide
Real life mermaids Sirena, Nixie and Lyla are part of a mermaid pod, which lives in the waters of Mako Island. As young members of the pod, it is their job to protect the Moon Pool, and guard it from trespassers. But on the night of a full moon, the mischievous mermaid girls neglect their duties. Sixteen-year-old land dweller Zac enters the Moon Pool and forms a special connection with Mako. Zac is given a fish-like tail and amazing powers.
The mermaid pod is forced to leave Mako. Sirena, Nixie and Lyla are left behind, cast out of the pod. The mermaid girls know there is only one way they will be allowed to rejoin the pod. They must get legs, venture onto land, and take back Zac's powers or risk being outcasts forever.
Young mermaids of the Mako Island pod, Sirena, Lyla and Nixie have the task of keeping trespassers off the magical island. On a full moon, they fail to stop a land boy, Zac, from falling into the sacred Moon Pool, and the power of the moon transforms him into a merman! As punishment the mermaids are banished from their pod as it flees Mako. To redeem themselves, the mermaids must find a way to turn Zac into normal boy once more.
