A Twist in the Tail
29 December 2006
Zane tells Rikki that Denman and his father have photographic evidence of mermaids. The girls freak. Denman lures Lewis to her boat in a bid to get the girls to follow. It works and when the girls surface at the Moon Pool, Denman is there waiting for them and traps them. Zane too is there – totally gobsmacked that Rikki is one of the mermaids. When Denman zeroes in on the girls to do some testing Zane sneaks off to get Lewis who helps him free the girls. Denman and Harrison are livid. Miss Chatham tells the girls that people will keep hunting for them unless they give up their powers – they can do it tonight in the moon pool during the lunar eclipse. They do. Suddenly in the moon pool the girls have legs again. But are Emma, Cleo and Rikki’s powers really gone forever? Or have they just pulled off a surprising twist?
