Zac realizes a shell he found has magical powers, and he accidentally sends the mermaids back in time five years, where they meet his younger self.



  • When the mermaids were transported to the past and meets young Zac, they explained to him that they were aliens. This is a reference to Jonathan M. Shiff's previous show, Lightning Point.
  • Zac's UFO wall reuses one of the Lightning Point crop circle stock photos.
  • Zac had an alien obsession in an alternate timeline because of the girls.
  • This is the first time a character's younger self is shown.
