S1E16 | 珍珠 (十)

Season 1, Ep. 16

We ended our last episode with a bit of a cliffhanger – Mei had taken her seventh sister’s advice and gives Hai her 海之心, her sea-heart. We left our story with Mei’s heart literally in Hai’s hands… and Mei a lifeless figure of stone. Is our tale to end in tragedy? We continue our story today, in Part 10 of Pearl – A Chinese Mermaid Story!

Season 1, Ep. 15

Last time, Mei had just revealed her identity to Hai – that she was the rose-carp he had once saved, and the youngest daughter of the dragon king. Hai must believe her, of his own accord… in order for Mei to become human and stay on land. What did Hai do? Did he believe? We continue our story today, in Part 9 of Pearl – A Chinese Mermaid Story!

S1E14 | 珍珠(八)

Season 1, Ep. 14

We ended our last episodeon a bit of a sad note. Mei is presented with a terrible choice: should she risk Hai’s life by revealing her secret… or should she give up on becoming human? 

Oh, and what about the dastardly Sha wo is sneak-listening in the shadowy corner of the cave? 

Today, we find out in Part 8 of Pearl – A Chinese Mermaid Story.
