We’ve seen Ryn form a special connection with Maddie and Ben, and gradually learn how to fit into the human world. But in every new episode, we're reminded just how deadly a mermaid can be when threatened, which is why we’re recapping all of the moments Ryn and Donna proved they were not to be messed with.
1. When Chris was almost killed.
At the time, we didn't know Donna was the mermaid who had attacked him.
2. When we learned that a mako shark is no match for a mermaid.
And we thought sharks were scary ...
3. When Ryn’s predator instinct took over and she attacked Ben.
He was lucky to get out alive.
4. When her aim was flawless.
We were seriously impressed.
5. When we found out exactly how strong mermaids are.
RIP Helen's living room.
6. And Maddie learned the hard way that Ryn didn’t like to be touched by strangers.
Although they weren’t strangers for long.
7. When Donna finally broke out of the testing facility.
She destroyed the lab and killed anyone who got in her way.
8. And when she first met Ben and Maddie.
She has never trusted humans.
9. When Ryn and Donna fought.
If this is how mermaids treat their sisters, imagine what they do to their enemies.
10. When Ryn showed Decker how terrifying she could be.
He probably had some regrets in this moment.
11. And when we realized just how far she would go to defend those she loves.
