After losing a battle with the Alaskan tribe, Tia (Tiffany Lonsdale) and Hunter (Katie Keough) make their way to Dunay, a small town near Vladivostok in Russia. “We are here to make allies in this half of the world,” Tia tells Hunter. Then they see a news report about an attack in Ternopil, Ukraine in which Tia’s song (which she no longer can sing) is used as a weapon to kill several office workers. (Ternopil is a university town, and in no way a military target.) When Tia realizes that the Russians have weaponized her song, she goes to Vladivostok, looks up the guy who helped her escape, kills him, and steals back her weaponized song. (Tia is not as bright as Ryn had given her credit for. She needed a prompt from the Russians to realize the Song’s destructive potential.) 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).

Two hybrids unload Bryan’s body. Beth Marzdan (Caroline Cave) is less than pleased that Xander knows about the hybrid community.
Two characters get scolded for their behaviour. Cami (Millan Tesfazgi) gets a talking to from Helen (Rena Owen) for killing Bryan. Cami accepts Helen’s statement that she is not the one to determine who lives and who dies, and that’s the end of that. Xander (Ian Verdun) and his fellow sheriff’s deputy trainees have to rescue Calvin’s tour boat, because Calvin (Curtis Lum) forgot to replace the fuel gauge and the thing ran out of gas. Xander lectures Calvin on responsibility, and Calvin defuses this by buying Xander expensive scotch and asking him to be best man at his wedding. It seems that Merfolk recognize and accept authority much more easily than do humans. It also seems likely that we will get to see Calvin and Janine (Hannah Levien) get married this season.
