The Chosen One is the 26th and final episode of season 2 of Mako: Island of Secrets.


The chamber's true purpose is revealed: to drain the magic from all mermaids. Zac risks his life to shut it down and restore the mermaids' magic.


With the full moon approaching, Ondina tries to warn Erik not to activate the merman chamber, but Erik refuses to listen even to her. A now powerless Zac has seemingly given up despite encouragement from Mimmi, Evie, and Cam. Zac later musters up the courage and follows Erik to the chamber to try and stop him. The girls also race to the chamber to stop Erik. Zac fights with Erik for the stone, but Erik shakes him off and finally activates the chamber. The girls attempt to destroy the stone with their moon rings, but it merely absorbs their power. The chamber drains the magic from the moon pool and slowly begins to kill the mermaids except Evie. Horrified by what he's done, Erik tries to deactivate the chamber but is unsuccessful. Evie arrives and helps an injured Zac to his feet. He successfully deactivates the chamber and saves the mermaids but seemingly dies in the process, much to the horror of the girls. Desperate to save her beloved brother, Mimmi grabs the stone and places it over Zac's heart. The stone restores Zac's power and revives him. The stone then crumbles, ending the chamber's threat to mermaids for good. The next day, Ondina breaks up with Erik and he leaves the Gold Coast in shame. Sirena reveals she's a mermaid to David. Veridia meets the group at Rita's grotto and praises Zac for his heroic actions. She makes him and Evie honorary members of the pod and gives Evie her own moon ring. The group joyfully swims out to greet the pod as they return to Mako at last.
