1 Previously on "Siren" You know some nut actually tried to convince me that Bristol Cove mermaids were real the other day? Now I got a contact in my phone for "Crazy Calvin.
" [HELEN] They can't last much longer here.
They need to go back tonight.
I got some ideas.
- [MADDIE LAUGHS] - [BEN] All right.
What if the way I feel about you has nothing to do with the song? We've never met, but I think you've been looking for me.
Keep off of me! Xander! - [GRUNTS] - [HELEN] Dale! [HELEN] He's gonna be a problem.
[PANTING] You weak.
[GRUNTING] [RYN] She will die.

I go.
I sleep.
But I see.
You had a dream.
Dream? That doesn't happen in the water? No.
Humans dream all the time.
Why? A lot of times it's how our minds deal with anxieties.
Um, things we want or desire.
Things that scare us or we don't understand.
Oh, hey, Maddie.
- Hi, Burt.
- All right.
Uh, the usual, please.
All right then.
Hey, friend.
Ben is in my dream.
I am scared of him? I don't think you're scared of him like he's bad.
You might just be scared of your feelings for him.
[CELL PHONE RINGING] We were just talking about you.
[BEN] You guys almost done? Yeah.
Why? Everything okay there? Not exactly.
We're on our way.
[CRASH AND SHOUTING] - [CRASH] - [GRUNTING] What's going on?! The whole listening thing, it's a problem! Ah! [BOTH GRUNTING] - Stop! - What the - [RYN HISSES] - I tried that.
See, one on one, they're manageable.
All together, it's a free-for-all.
In water, they hunt, fight, rest Always something to do.
Well, if they keep it up in here, someone's gonna find them.
- [HISS] - [HISS] No more.
Always we are family, but not together.
You want to split them up? - [HISSING] - We must.
- [ROCK MUSIC PLAYING] I'll take it.
[RYN] We make new home for them.
They stay with humans.
It's fish in a sandwich.
[RYN] Ones we trust.
[RYN] Males will guard the tank.
Ben, don't get me wrong.
I am grateful for the business and all, but, uh, I'm getting the feeling that some of these people aren't underage exchange students.
- Uh - [RYN] We will teach.
Yeah, they're Ryn's extended family.
[SIGHS] Okay, Fishers.
Who's up first? [RYN] They will learn.

When they need to go to water, they use tank.
Just one of you.
Uh, yeah.

[MUSIC ENDS] - [HISS] - [HISS] No fight! [SOFT HISS] - Speak.

Wants to go with Ben.
Ryn, he killed Sean.
They tell him to do this.
To fight.
[BEN] That doesn't change what happened.
What's Xander gonna think, me watching him? He doesn't have to know.
I can't keep it from him forever.
Not forever, just for now.
It's best for everyone.
All right.
Wanna put that up there? All right, good.
Hey, uh, no.
That way.
Um, if he wants to learn how to be a man, he Couldn't have picked a better one.
Thanks, Mads.
[LAUGHS] Call if you need anything.
Old habit.
No, no, no.
It's a good one.
- Whoa! - Sorry.
Old habit.
Wrong? No.
No, no, no, no.
It's not [AHEM] It's not wrong.
It's, uh Complicated.
You don't kiss a person unless they want to be kissed.
That's kind of the rule.
Lots of rules about kissing.
[ENGINE STARTS] I know it hasn't been easy for you with me being here, but I don't This isn't about you, Mom.
I've been thinking about moving for a while.
Already signed the lease.
Besides, it's not that far.
It's on Spring Street, not Seattle.
Does Dad know? I'll tell him when he gets back.
[SIGHS] He is not gonna like being kept in the dark.
Maybe you should just wait.
Mom, it's okay.
We have an understanding.
Moving day's gonna need a lunch break.
How about we meet up at Rusty's? 1:30? 1:30.
I'll be there.
No hunt.
No fight.
Men do nothing.
We do a lot of things.
Yeah, beer.
We drink that.
We watch that when we're not working.
Probably a little too much, actually.
See, sometimes we hang out with friends.
Maddie friend.
This is my family.
[LEVI] Family.
Do you know who that is? Man I kill.
His name was Sean.
Okay? And this is Xander.
My friend.
My friend.
I need to go out for a little while.
[ORCHESTRA PLAYING] Want to take a ride? Come on.
Come on.
Come on.
I need you to wait here.
All right? I'm going to talk to someone.
You don't leave the car.
Don't leave car.
- Here.
- [RADIO ANNOUNCER] this Thursday.
That's right, my 17th caller - wins front-row tickets - I'll be right back.
and a limo package.
Call in now.
[DOOR LOCKS] [BEN] I tried to call.
Yeah, well, I guess we both have a bad habit of ignoring each other's calls then, huh? I'm sorry.
Things have been busy.
I heard about your rager, at the family cabin? I'm just trying to keep them safe, Xan.
They still there? Did you move 'em? What about the one who, uh, killed my dad? He still with 'em? We should talk.
Xan, like, really talk this time.
I already said everything I have to say.
Yeah, I heard you loud and clear.
But there's a lot that you don't know.
The male, he's just a soldier doing what he's told.
Is that why you came out here, man? To defend him? We were in the wrong place at the wrong time, Xan, and that is my fault, not his.
His family were being starved out.
Xander, I need you to try and make peace with this, because he could be here for a while.
Your dad was like a father to me, too.
Stop, man! Okay? I said I was cool.
Look, you don't have to worry about me.
Just gonna stay out here on my boat.
Gonna deal with this in my own way.
That okay with you? [EXHALES] [HATCH SLAMS] [BELL JINGLES] Oh, early bird gets the worm.
[HELEN] I'm still trying to figure out how we have never bumped into each other, living so close all these years.
I don't really get out that much.
Um I don't really fit in.
Me neither.
Even as a little girl, I knew I was different.
I felt a little bit like a freak at times.
Yeah, I know what you mean.
My mother.
She lived till she was 90.
Smoked a pack a day, unfiltered, just like her attitude.
[BOTH CHUCKLE] Uh, what about your parents? My mom died when I was younger, and I never really knew my dad.
I'm so sorry.
Any siblings? Nah, just me.
[LOUD THUD] [BOTH HISSING] - [NOISE CONTINUES] - Um [CLEARS THROAT] Mind if I ask what happened to your mother? She was an addict.
Um Things got bad.
Addiction's been a reoccurring theme in my family, too.
Genetics, right? That's probably why I was blessed with it.
[CHUCKLES] Addiction, mental illness, rare autoimmune condition? Uh-huh.
People in my line have skin like us.
They say it's this or that.
The cause always changes, but that's because they've never really known.
Um, which reminds me.
There's a old family recipe that does the trick.
I've tried, like It's for you.
Try it.
[SNIFFS] Strong.
Use it.
Thank you.
I gotta I'm gonna I'm kind of late.
- I'm late for work, so - Come back, anytime.
There's so much more we We have to talk about.
[DOOR OPENS] You would down three chili dogs when you were a kid.
[LAUGHS] - Thank you.
- Thanks.
Yeah, then I discovered what's in them.
Well, keep that to yourself, because they're still good to me, and, plus, it's tradition.
Tradition? Yeah, isn't that why you picked this place? When you were a teenager, I would let you skip school so that we could have girls' day, remember? Matinees, Mani-pedis, capped off with chili dogs at Rusty's.
And we never told your dad.
It was always our little secret.
Until the principal called about too many absences.
Cost me a few soccer games.
All right, there's always someone trying to spoil a good thing.
- Yeah.
- [CELL PHONE CHIMES] If you have to go No, no, it's okay.
Well, I want to give you something.
You didn't have to do that.
I wanted to do it.
Open it.
It isn't much, but just This is mine.
I don't understand.
You're giving me my own necklace? I went through your things, I know, but turn it over.
- - I had it engraved, so that we are always together by your heart.
You don't like it.
No, I do.
It's okay.
It's nice.
Thank you.
Hey, you know, uh, you don't have to do everything exactly like me.
I know that in the water you have to listen to everything the females say.
Not land.
You still need to listen to women.
That's very important.
You just You can be your own person, if that makes sense.
Don't worry.
