Plot Edit

Rikki inadvertently uncovers some counterfeit cash from a sale at the cafe and when following it up, finds herself held by criminals on their boat. It's her birthday and when Rikki fails to arrive at her own surprise party in the Moon Pool, Cleo and Bella go in search of her. They find themselves needing Will's help and through this are forced to reveal to him the truth about the whole trios' identities as mermaids. Will helps them free Rikki from the criminals on the boat only to narrowly escape when it catches fire in the rescue. At the cafe, Sophie finds the girls' mermaid inspired birthday gift for Rikki and edges closer to their secret. Fortunately Will retrieves it and delivers it to Rikki, sensing it required saving from his suspicious sister. Will's actions seal his place in the group – but it's something Zane isn't happy about.


  • This is the not only episode where the main character is captured (Rikki is tied and gagged with duct tape); this would also occur in other episodes as well.




Rikki: This isn't a Birthday present is it?
Cleo: Definitely not.
Bella: Think of it as a really late Christmas present.
