Episode Summary

EDIT
Eel Niño
AIRED:
When Cody is driving on the beach in a lifeguard truck, he suddenly sees a huge hole in the sand. He alerts Mitch over the radio. When Mitch arrives, he tells everyone of the Santa Ana syndrome. It´s a warm wind that comes in from the desert and it bring all weirdoes down to the beach. Mitch calls the county and lets someone fill up the hole with new sand. Max from the county arrives in his tractor. He tells Cody that the lifeguards get all the credit for everything that happens on the beach. Nobody cares about the guy watching the sand. Later, two jet skiers get into trouble when they collide into a sand bar. Lani goes out to rescue them and has to walk over the sand bar. Cody and Sheryl arrive in the call car and Cody walks over the sand bar too. They have now found the missing sand. Later, Mitch is surprised to find out that the lifeguard trucks are gone. Someone has stolen them from the garage at headquarters. On the beach, a man with a metal detector finds that something large is hidden under the sand. The man starts to dig and Cody sees him. It turns out that the man has found one of the lifeguard trucks. Mitch arrives and the man tells him that he wants to keep the truck. He found it and it belongs to him. When Mitch tells him that it belongs to the county, he still doesn´t care. Max returns once again to help them out. Cody then remembers what Max said earlier that he never gets any attention. Mitch and Cody confronts him and it turns out that he is behind the whole thing. Meanwhile, April and Manny decide to go out in a dory. Under the moonlight, the two of them spend a romantic evening together. But their kiss is interrupted by some movement in the water. Manny checks it out and it turns out to be a dead sea lion. April also sees something else in the water. It´s an electric eel and Manny just misses to become another victim. Later, Hobie and Sheryl jog on the beach and Hobie tells Sheryl that he is planning on asking April out on a date. He tells him that she is in love with Manny. But Hobie tells her that he isn´t afraid of little competition. They run into a dead sea lion on the beach. Mitch lets Dr. Meyers in an aquarium examine the sea lions. She finds out that at least one of them was electrocuted. Later an old man named Jonah is attacked by the eel. Sheryl notices that Jonah is in trouble and Mitch and Cody swim out to rescue him. Later, Jonah recovers in the hospital. Hobie finds out that April wants to visit the Cave of Sirens, so he takes her there without Manny knowing it. Later Manny finds out from Lani, that April and Hobie has gone to the Cave of Sirens. When Hobie and April swim into the cave, the eel is peering at them from behind some rocks, waiting to attack. Meanwhile, Dr. Meyers brings over a sketch of the jaw marks that matched on all victims. Mitch tells her that there were no electric eels in the area. During a quake, a tank cracked, and some lab specimens were lost including an electric eel. Mitch wonders why they have never told anyone about this. Dr. Meyers says that since they were out of their natural habitat, they didn´t think they would survive. Manny and Lani arrive to the Cave of Sirens as well. Manny is so jealous that he has to see what April and Hobie are up to. Inside the cave, Hobie finds out that April is in love with Manny and decides to let her go. When they are about to swim out of the cave, the eel attacks them. When Hobie and April are safe on some rocks, the eel attacks Lani and Manny instead who are about to swim into the cave. They try to make it back to their boat but the eel catches Manny´s leg and drags him through the water. Lani comes to the rescue and attacks the eel. Mitch and Cody arrive and revive Manny with the help of the defibrillator. Then Mitch goes inside the cave to rescue Hobie and April. Mitch struggles with the eel and his spear gun is knocked out of his hand. Then he tells Hobie to have the defibrillator ready. When the defibrillator is shocking, Mitch holds them in place and finishes the eel.moreless

  • OK!

    This episode was ok! Not a favorite! I just think that the acting for this series got really bad after season 7! With the exception of the regulars who have been there before season 8! But the people like April, Cody, Manny and Lani are terrible actors! And I know that Cody has been there before season 8 but i think he got worse during that season! Anyway, this episode was ok,not a favorite but still good! I loved the scenes with the Hobster! I thought it was funny when his dad said," How are You?" and then Hobie said," Well the tides coming in and there is a giant electric eel trying to eat us!!!" just the way he said it was funny! Well, thats all! The rest was a bore!!moreless
  • An massive electric eel is on the loose attacking innocent swimmers and it's bite is deadly. A conspiracy is also upon Baywatch as there is missing sand and lifeguard vehicles. Many and April are getting to know eachother a bit more and Hobie wants somemoreless

    I really enjoyed this episode as there is a massive electril eel on the loose attacking innocent swimmers. It's like the movie jaws, but not a shark! We also see romance blooming between Many and April. Hobie likes April as well and loves competition, so the challenge is on.



    Also there are really weird things happening at Baywatch. Cody finds a massive pit in the middle of the beach, almost like aliens have landed and taken the sand? Lifeguard trucks have also disappeared and found under the sand!!



    The challenge to defeat the eel at the end was great as Many gets attacked and electricuted!

    Mitch comes to the rescue and saves April and Hobie who went underneath the water into the caves - very intense!



    Overall, I really enjoyed this episode - recommend it.moreless
