Siren Wiki

"Curse of the Starving Class" is the fifth episode of Siren. It aired on April 19, 2018.


Ben begins to investigate some suspicious over-fishing, meanwhile Decker ramps up his efforts to find his escaped mermaid and shows the true extent of his influence.[2]


A whole month has passed since Ryn left with her sister Donna, and Ben and Maddie had been living their lives as they had before. Deciding to have dinner together, like "normal couples" they meet at the boathouse, where Jerry gives them sushi; much to Maddie's surprise. Just when they kiss and plan on sex, they discover that Ryn is returning, so they set out to go find and meet with her.

That night, Ryn trudges around naked in the woods and Donna follows her telling her to return to the water. Ryn tells Donna that there are good people, those who can help them. They soon come across an empty outdoor field and Ryn tells Donna to put some clothes on, but Donna refuses. She then notices the necklace Ryn was wearing, which contains the tracker planted inside, rips it off her neck, and throws it away.
