Modern day pirates and a mermaid
Mark encounters modern day pirates who possess a mermaid who can produce a hypnotic siren song that has a strange effect on anyone who hears it. Even Mark is susceptible to it’s powers.
This next-to-last episode is pretty good. Nothing new here but it’s fast paced, somewhat imaginative and those villains are a bit less cartoonish than previous ones. Belinda J. Montgomery has left the series and her absence is explained by way of her being summoned to Washington by politicians.
The mermaid looks authentic enough and it turns out that Mark has a singing voice himself that can heal a person who’s still in some state of shock after succumbing to the siren song.
Overall this episode is a breath of fresh air after the inherent silliness that plagued the previous two episodes.
