‘Siren’ Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2 Questions We Have

Siren Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2 started the season off in an action-packed way. The first and second season of Freeform’s supernatural drama mainly focused on the merpeople near the small town of Bristol Cove. Season 3 is possibly opening things up to introduce more merpeople from around the world. In season 3, Ryn continues to adapt to human life but is interrupted by a more sophisticated mermaid’s arrival in Bristol Cove.

This new mermaid has some secrets and definite plans of what she wants to do. Her actions, as well as the actions of others, leave us with some questions. Pondering these questions might help us figure out where the show is going

Will Ben Pownall and Maddie Bishop make up after the events of ‘Siren’ Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2?

In Siren Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2, Ben’s decision at the end of season 2 has consequences. After Ben acts strangely for a while whenever the topic is brought up, Maddie confronts him. He then tells her that he had a choice. He could have saved Ian Sutton but chose not to.

Maddie is upset and tells Ben that what he did was wrong. The way Ben explains it makes a lot of logical sense, though Maddie’s feelings are also understandable. In Ben’s mind, he sacrificed one life to save the entire species of merpeople. He also mentions that Ian had kidnapped Ryn and tried to kill him and Maddie, that what he did was also wrong.

Maddie sees things differently and is understandably angry with Ben right now. However, the two of them might have no choice but to make up. If they want to protect Ryn, especially with the dangerous new mermaid in town, they might have to put their personal problems aside.

Will Tia end up killing Ryn?

Siren Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2 introduces Ryn and the audience to a new mermaid. This mermaid takes the name Tia and tells Ryn how she was captured by humans. These humans taught her a lot, including languages and how to fight. However, Tia ended up killing the humans who captured her, not only because of the capture but because they stole her song.

They did so by cutting in her brain. Tia spent 10 years with the humans and came to the conclusion that no human can be trusted. She believes that humans should not be in charge of the Earth, but that instead merpeople should since they’re more evolved than humans. She wants to unite all of the merpeople and kill all the humans and anyone else who stands in her way.

Ryn, of course, doesn’t like this plan. The two mermaids fight and Ryn gets severely injured. Luckily, her colony shows up just in time to save her. But will Tia kill Ryn?

It’s hard to know. It would certainly be a bold move for the show to kill off its main mermaid character. Yet it is definitely possible since, by Ryn’s own admission, Tia is stronger than her. She is, according to Ryn, stronger than any mermaid that she’s ever seen. 

Why did Sarge appear to Helen Hawkins but not mermaids like Ryn or Eliza during the events of ‘Siren’ Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2?

In Siren Season 3 Episodes 1 and 2, Helen has encounters with a dead merman called Sarge. He was part of Ryn’s colony and had an especially powerful connection with Helen, who is part mermaid. Of course, he would miss her and would want to appear to her. Yet we can’t help but think that Ryn or Eliza or any other merperson would have been able to decipher his message easier than Helen could.

According to Ryn, the ocean is full of spirits. So why did Sarge go to all the trouble of appearing to Helen when he could have easily appeared to one of his colony? It’s possible that spirits like Sarge can only appear to certain people, people with whom they had intense connections in their life. We might get the answer to this question as the season goes on.

In any case, it’s an interesting question to ponder.
