[S1E10] Zac Returns To Mako
The full moon returns and thus the trident will be within Zac's reach. Lyla is desperate to prevent Zac from getting the trident and harming, or even killing, himself. Cam warns Zac about putting too much trust in three girls whom he hardly knows but Zac refuses to listen to him. That night, Zac tries to resist the pull of the full moon, but is unsuccessful. He races to Mako Island to get the trident, with the girls in hot pursuit. Zac grabs the trident, turns around, and is shocked to see the girls in their mermaid form. Lyla tries to take the trident from Zac, believing it may harm him, but accidentally causes the trident to activate and throw everyone out of the portal. Zac has snapped out of the moon's spell, but is furious that the girls have been hiding their true identity from him. Feeling profoundly betrayed and believing that the girls are trying to take the trident for themselves, an angry Zac ends their friendship. After apologizing to Cam, Zac is now even more determined to get the trident.
[S1E10] Zac Returns to Mako
Zac finally has possession of the trident, but doesn't know how to activate it. While at school, Zac sees Rita and realizes she may know something about the trident. To get access to Rita's house, he convinces Evie and David to interview Rita at her home for the school magazine. During the interview, Evie becomes suspicious that Rita and the girls are hiding something from her and begins asking them probing questions. Zac, realizing that Evie is getting too close to his and the girl's secret, abruptly ends the interview before Evie can find out more. While David photographs Rita and the girls, Zac searches the house and discovers Rita's secret grotto. Later, he sneaks into the grotto through the underwater entrance with the trident in hand to check it out properly. The girls confront Zac in the grotto and inadvertently charge the trident when it suddenly begins absorbing energy from Sirena's Moon Ring. Zac escapes with the trident and returns home to experiment with its powers.
Sirena's sister, Aquata, returns to Mako Island with good and bad news. She reveals that Sirena is now allowed to return to the pod, but Lyla and Nixie are still banished. Though Sirena is reluctant to leave her two friends, they both insist that she go. Meanwhile, Zac discovers the underwater entrance to the moon pool and confronts Lyla and Nixie, demanding they tell him about the trident's connection to the moon pool. When they refuse, he threatens to take over the moon pool. The next morning, Sirena leaves with Aquata while Nixie and Lyla confront Zac at his home. Another battle ensues with the two girls finding themselves overpowered once again. However, Sirena returns just in time to knock the trident from Zac's grasp. Lyla, seizing her chance, swims off with the trident and hides it in a small opening in the rocks. Afterwards, Sirena decides to stay with Lyla and Nixie rather than return to the pod.
Rita begins giving the girls lessons on how to use the Moon Rings. Meanwhile, Zac is searching the reef for the trident and recruits Cam to help him find it. When Lyla goes to check on the trident, she sees Zac retrieving it from its hiding place. As Lyla tries to take the trident from Zac, a bolt of lightning jumps out from it and strikes her, knocking her unconscious. Horrified by what he's done, Zac picks up Lyla and brings her to Rita's grotto, leaving the trident for Cam to bring back to shore. Sirena, Nixie, and Rita attempt to use their Moon Rings to heal Lyla, but this fails when the rings run out of magic. Rita realizes that their only hope of saving Lyla rests with using the trident to recharge the Moon Rings. Zac retrieves the trident and brings it to them despite Cam's protests. He recharges the Moon Rings, which the mermaids then use to heal Lyla. After recovering, Lyla tells Zac about the trident's ability to destroy the Moon Pool. Zac finally realizes how dangerous the trident truly is and returns it to its resting place on Mako Island, ending his feud with the mermaids. However, Nixie is unsure if Zac can be trusted to let it remain there.
