Outcasts is the first episode and the series premiere of Mako: Island of Secrets


This episode begins with mermaids Nixie and Sirena swimming to see who can go faster. Then two members of the Mermaid Pod tell them to go on their duties. Nixie asks why she can't celebrate with the Mermaid Pod. They say once they pass their test they will join the them and celebrate. Lyla suggests that she take the forshore and they take the rest.  Nixie and Sirena help 16-year old boys Zac and Cam catch a fish. They decide to camp out on Mako Island. That night Zac puts his hand on the trident shape and it opens a portal to the Moon Pool. After falling in, he recieves a blue tail and powers. The 3 Mermaids tell the mermaid pod and they blame them even though it wasn't their fault. Sirena, Lyla and Nixie decide to follow him to see if he has powers. He nearly shows Cam his powers but the mermaids take control of the water so it doesn't work. He then falls in the ocean and discovers he has a tail.  After the Mermaids return to the island, Aquata tells them they are being cast out and she gives Sirena her moon ring. The show ends with Zack showing Cam his powers.
