Breakaway is the 19th episode in Season 3 of H2O: Just Add Water.


It's the day of the Gold Coast Free Diving Championship and Will's attempt at setting a new record. Sophie's excited but Will is unfazed. It's very apparent that Sophie's ambitions for Will's success are the main force driving him. Bella quietly encourages Will to find his own reason and to rediscover his attraction to free-diving for the event. But after breaking the record and winning the competition, Will chooses to shrug off his sister's influence in his life and not pursue any further competitions. Finding being around Zane awkward Rikki reluctantly goes to the Sea World with Cleo for a change of air. A simple job to assist her brings Rikki to interact with Ronnie the dolphin and brighten her outlook. The girls discretely attend the championship as mermaids to cheer Will on, but when Rikki sees Sophie kissing Zane in the celebrations, and Zane doing nothing about it, makes her feel heart broken and unappreciated. Therefore she breaks off her relationship with Zane permanently.
