Season 3 » Episode #14 - Mermaid Magic
Summary: Zane resents Will having become part of the team but fails to make the girls doubt his reliability. Hearing Will needs a sponsor for his competitive diving without oxygen, Zane asks a demonstration claiming the café is interested. In fact he hires Cameron and Nate so he can cheat by diving 40 meter himself and receiving oxygen. Will decides to go for 60, fair, but ends up unconscious. Ricki arrives just in time as mermaid, finds out the truth and gets him a generous contract.
Meanwhile, the Moonpool study shift from the controlled tentacle to the rock which swallowed Will's diving lamp. It turns out to contain a blue crystal, identical to the one Bella found in the Irish sea when she became a mermaid.
Who appeared in this episode?
- Goof (factual errors): Will does all of his deep free dives using only eye-covering swim goggles. All depth diving must be done with a scuba mask that covers your nose to allow for mask pressure equalization. Without equalizing your mask, at even 10m, the mask squeeze causes your eyes to feel like they will burst from your head. Beyond 10m can be injurious. Mask equalization is mandatory on all such dives.
