The mermaid was able to use a magic bracelet to break the spell and free him.
Mimmi believes Nerissa is trapped in the form of the Water Dragon and needs their help but Veridia and the Mermaid Council don't want to risk the pod by not destroying the Water Dragon. Desperate to get their hands on the gold bracelet, Ondina and Weilan find Rikki at the Moon Pool where they are finally able to convince her to help them.
