Awakening is seventh episode of season 2 of Mako: Island of Secrets.


With the Full Moon approaching, Zac's plan to avoid Mako Island is dealt a blow when his father insists they go on their annual camping trip.


It is the night of the full moon and the mermaids are worried about what effects the moon will have on Zac and Evie. Zac's plan to avoid the moon is dealt a blow when his father takes him and Cam on a camping trip to Mako Island. Erik decides to come on the trip as well so he can learn more the island. The three mermaids stay over at Evie's house that night to keep watch over her. During the full moon, Zac is drawn to the chamber he previously discovered with Erik following him. The moon also causes Mimmi to have a vision of Zac on Mako Island. She and Ondina heads to the island, leaving Sirena and Carly to look after Evie on their own. Evie ultimately catches a glimpse of the moon and falls under a moon spell, making her hyper and longing to be with Zac. She escapes to Mako with Sirena in pursuit. The two find Zac, Erik, Ondina, and Mimmi at the currently active chamber. Zac nearly attacks Evie, but fortunately snaps out of his own moon spell when the chamber deactivates. The next morning, Erik offers to help Zac figure out the chamber's secret, but he is reluctant to accept.



  • This is the first episode to feature Evie being moonstruck.
  • The glimpse of Evie staring into a reflection of the moon in a glass of water is a reference to H2O: Just Add Water. The way she acts under the influence of Full Moon is also similar to what happened to the mermaids in H2O: Just Add Water, as her personality becomes to opposite, acting more childish in contrast to her normal mature behavior.
  • This episode title is similar to the first episode of the Season 3 of H2O: Just Add Water.
  • Under the influence of the moon spell, Evie referred to Zac as "Zackie"


  • Victor Parascos as Mick is credited, but does not appear in this episode.
