After last week’s episode of Freeform‘s Siren, things are not looking good for Ben (Alex Roe), Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola), and folks of Bristol Cove – and especially for Ryn (Eline Powell), who is doing everything possible to save her mermaids – and a solution may rest with the hybrids. Meanwhile, Ben looks to take Chris (Chad Rook) out to see some familiar faces – and it looks like Xander’s (Ian Verdun) suspicious looks might be justified. Meanwhile, Elaine (Sarah-Jane Redmond) look to be in for a pleasant surprise – at least until the “side effects” kick in – in the following previews and promo for this week’s episode “Sacrifice” (which doesn’t bode well for someone):
Siren season 2, episode 15 “Sacrifice”: Ben and Xander deal with a shocking discovery about Chris and his connection to the military; Helen and Maddie reluctantly seek help from the hybrids as the threat of extinction looms over the mermaids.
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.
