Ben’s dream, with a bright yellow and white colour scheme featuring sunflowers.
Robb Wellens (Deniz Akdeniz) arrives in Bristol Cove with a recording of his tribe’s echo chamber (where the songs of his ancestors are stored), and it is used first to bring Xander (Ian Verdun) out of a coma, and then to cure all other surviving victim of Tia’s song. (It seems that neither the song nor the cure for it requires any sort of high quality sound equipment to be effective.) Xander wakes up and immediately takes charge of things. (The cure must actually repair brain damage caused by the song, rather than just stopping it from progressing further.) He and Deputy Staub (Tammy Gillis) lead the hybrid volunteers, who are immune to the effects of the song, in the search for more victims. Continue reading →
Calvin (Curtis Lum) tries to decide on a suit to wear to his wedding
Calvin (Curtis Lum) gets his best man Xander (Ian Verdun) to help him pick out a wedding suit. He also talks Xander into getting the event permit. Janine (Hannah Levien), who does not appear in either of these episodes, wants the wedding’s theme to be “beachy elegance”. It looks as though Janine and Calvin will get married sometime in the last three episodes of this season, unless the mermaid wars intervene. Calvin describes his suit of choice as: “light Gray linen, classic cut, notch lapel, center vent.”
Helen (Rena Owen) is being haunted by the ghost of Ryn’s sister Donna (Sibongile Mlambo). Helen contacted the aquatic spirit world using psychotropic drugs a few episodes back because she wanted to speak to Sarge (Hugo Ateo) who was killed during the mission to sabotage an oil drilling rig (Episode 2.8).

Meredith (Kiomi Pyke), who is carrying Ryn’s baby and close to giving birth, is lowered by Dr. Leena (Kaaren de Zilva) into a cold water bath to bring her body temperature down. .
Ben (Alex Roe) seems to be afflicted with the same condition that destroyed Decker. (Aldon Decker was the guy who captured Ryn’s sister and experimented on her for the Navy. He became addicted to mermaid song and drowned in Episode 1.10.) With the best of intentions, Ben digs up a dead mermaid (just like Decker’s successor Kyle did), harvests her stem cells and injects himself with them. The idea is to prove to his father that continuing the treatment is safe for his mom (who has somehow developed greatly increased lung capacity, but still cannot walk). Decker and Kyle were both exploiting mermaids in an attempt to cure paralyzed former solders, and it’s a fair bet that Kyle also was exposed to the song. When Ryn finds out what Ben has done, she will not likely be pleased about it. Continue reading →
