On this week’s episode of Freeform‘s Siren, Ryn (Eline Powell) may just end up “The Last Mermaid” after her colony’s attempt at an on-land mating season doesn’t exactly do the job necessary to “set the mood,” so to speak. When Ryn finds a suitable partner to mate with to save her mermaids, her relationship dynamic with Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) takes a major hit as jealousy also rise to the surface. Meanwhile, Xander (Ian Verdun) has some brutal news to deliver Helen (Rena Owen)…
Siren season 2, episode 14 “The Last Mermaid”: Mating season turned out to be less successful than everyone had hoped, leading them to question the possibility of the mermaids procreating on land. Ryn brings a new mate ashore for the good of the colony, but it raises emotional questions for Ben and Maddie.
Here’s a Look Back at Freeform’s “Siren”…
In the second season of Freeform’s Siren, more mermaids arrived in the once-sleepy fishing town: some seeking revenge, some looking to explore – with something catastrophic driving them out of the sea. Ben and Maddie continued to establish a bond with mermaid Ryn – not just to protect her but to save her entire civilization.
Based on a story by Eric Wald and Dean White who both serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell (Finding Carter) is on board as showrunner and executive producer. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper, and RD Robb are also attached as executive producers.
“Siren” takes us inside Bristol Cove—a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean.
The series stars Alex Roe (“The 5th Wave”) as Ben, a bright marine biologist who finds himself drawn to Ryn, a mysterious new girl in town played by Eline Powell (“Game of Thrones”), who is a strange young woman with a deep dark secret. Fola Evans-Akingbola (“An American Exorcism”) stars as Maddie, also a marine biologist who works with Ben, and is highly suspicious of Ryn. Ian Verdun (“Life’s a Drag”) stars as Xander, a deep sea fisherman on a quest to uncover the truth; and Rena Owen (“Star Wars” Episodes II and III) as Helen, the town eccentric who seems to know more about the mermaids than she lets on.
Ben and Maddie are uncertain about the mermaids’ future after the deadly consequences of the attack on the oil rig and, with the mermaids returning to sea, are left feeling lost without Ryn. Once Helen learns she’s not the only one of her kind, she discovers there is a dark side to her people’s past.
Freeform’s Siren airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. EST.
