The episode starts in the Octopod with Kwazii playing table tennis with Dashi and Inkling when he sees a blurr of red, green, skin peach, and ruby red pass by which had him distracted from the game and he and Dashi go to the window to see what it is, but it disappears. So they go outside to find the creature who swam to the coral cave filled with treasure and lost things. Just then, they felt something swam right behind them very fast as Dashi turned on her flashlight to see who or what it was. When the light stops, Kwazii and Dashi come face to face with...a mermaid named Ariel!
