  • It is revealed that Tia was pregnant with a child at the time she was captured by the Russian government, and that they took it away from her. This explains one of the many reasons for Tia's hatred and distrust towards humans.

    • Robb's team will be begin working on the oceanic cleanup project. Him and Maddie will take a layover flight to Tokyo and then a connecting flight to Manila in the The Philippines. From there, a research boat will pick them up to take them to the garbage gyre cleanup site located in the South Pacific. In the next few months, the cleanup process will begin in other regions of the five oceans.
    • If the project succeeds, then the ocean's waters will be purified. The Merfolk will be able to procreate and repopulate again.
  • In the episode's last few moments, a fantasy is projected. Ben, Ryn, and Hope are living together as a happy family.
    • Ben's body was seen underwater moving towards a bright light. His whereabouts are unknown but it is possible that this bright light could be another echo chamber belonging to another mermaid tribe.
  • Ryn lays on a rock off the coast of Bristol Cove looking out into the sea. She will be waiting for Ben's return, because she knows that he is still alive out in the ocean.

Quotes

We are getting a lot of conflicted reports, but here's what we know at this time: there's been a widespread burgeoning terror attack in the Pacific Northwest. It originated in small coastal towns, and has now spread to larger urban areas: Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia and Portland, which are reporting significant casualties. Homeland Security officals are warning residents...

I thought Hunter could be trusted. I thought she was one of us.
— Helen to Ryn
There is no greater pain than a mother losing her baby.
— Tia to Hope
If my daughter dies because of you, you will know her pain.

We're working on restoring power to town, but we've blocked cell service to prevent further attacks.

You know, I've been having dreams about the three of us, living together as a family.

Everything's changed, Helen. He's not the boy Elaine and I raised. He's something else.
— Ted to Helen
Almost two weeks since the sonic terror attack hit the Pacific Northwest and parts of Asia, and still more questions than answers. The identity of the woman who released a recorded manifesto during the crisis remains a mystery, though Homeland Security officals insist she is no longer considered a person of interest.

Your negligent disregard for this planet will no longer be tolerated. You were warned and now will suffer the consequences. The reckoning has come. Humans are the only species who refuse to take responsibility for their contemptible actions. War, famine, global warming. The time of judgement has come.
— Tia's manifesto to the humans

She wanted to make the world a better place, to protect the oceans for our kind. But she did it in the wrong way. She had many things taken from her. Her song, her tribe, her child. This filled her with hate. She had lost all hope in humans. We can make the world better. But we will do it with love.
— Ryn to her daughter Hope

If I die, it is so my daughter can live.
— Ryn
