Kevin arrived with the old wise man and the Perasiandies weapons. With this they kept the sea monsters from attacking any of the Allied Mermaids. They waited until most of the monsters were killed or subdued by the evil mermaids, leaving most of the burden on them. The Mermaia didn't believe in retreating so this allowed the allies to continue their attack once the odds got better for them. In the midst of the continued battle Joey, the cabin boy who fell in love with the mermaid in the beginning of the movie now returned with gills on his neck. Sam looked at him in amazement and asked him how this happened. The old wise man from Perasiandies starts to tells them the cautionary tale of the mermaid who was forever cursed to walk the dry lands. The cabin boy interupts him and tells everyone that what the old wise man said was actually just a misconstrued myth and what really happened was that the aforementioned mermaid was actually genetically modified with alien DNA. You see back in the good old days a bunch of mermaids were offered some 'Mermaid Medicine' as it was put, so they could become full humans for a week, the only catch was that they had to get back in the water after that week cause if they didn't they would die. The mermaid who Joey fell in love with was unbeknownst to her a descendant of a genetically modified mermaid. Her great grandmother went to that one planet where Momma Fish Girl lived and got some of that cool DNA to make her socially acceptable at the time. All the cool mermaids were doing it, you know, getting legs that would make them full humans for a week, but of course, after that week, the 'spell' would run out and those who didn't go back in the water would witness their bodies dehydrate really fast until they became a corpse. So with this, along with a few other reasons, is why this particular genetic modification was one that mermaid-kind abandoned, it was too unreliable and most mermaids forgot to get back in the water in time... And not only that, but, an evil Mad Merman called Carl, was angry at a mermaid for not being loved in return, so he modified the 'Medicine' even more, instead of being a week without water he brought it down to just a second without water and thus killed off anyone who wouldn't love him. Needless to say Carl died alone but his scientific discoveries were used for the advancement of mermaid-kind. When Joey and the mermaid guide left the crab looking submarine they went down to Merrows City, there they spoke with his love's grandmother and she explained that the 'true love's kiss' legend was kind of interpreted wrong. So without getting into too many technical details about how this alien DNA worked and all that stuff, she basically asked Joey if he wanted gills and of course he said yes (because up until that point he had been receiving air somehow from being kissed every few minutes), and they made it happen with an ancient love ritual thing. After the story, Sam and the pilot thought that maybe Joey had a good plan after all, even though he was just seeing everything through the cute lens of a fool in love. They would modify the Perasiandies sonic weapons to include this new hydrophobic chemical and it would be a great weapon to use against the evil mermaids. They got on the gathering sphere and contacted Imani and Meria, they all agreed this was a great plan. Imani told them that the allied mermaids would stop turning into battle mermaids and maintain their beautiful half human presence, so that the crew would know which ones not to harm. Then the crew quickly reengineered that 'medicine' stuff using Joey's and his mermaid girlfriend's blood, along with detailed instructions they downloaded off the Mad Science of Mermaid-kind website and put it into their weapons. Meanwhile, the battle continued and the Mermaia herself fought with a few monsters putting them down permanently but now the priority was to get back where she left off, getting Triton and Momma Fish Girl, whatever was gonna happen next, it was more than obvious that the end was near
