Jodie steals some money to buy a cream that can make her tanned. Vanessa finds out and blackmails her into spying on Brett and Jason. Jodie later tells Vanessa that she will no longer spy on them and that she can tell about the money if she want to. Jodie uses too much of the tanning-cream and ends up looking like a lobster.

The company that has dumped the barrels is one of the biggest sponsors of ORCA. Jason comes up with an antidote for Charly and Neri who is also affected. Neri tells Jason she wants to visit ORCA, which troubles Jason.

Episode 8

Neri comes to visit ORCA. Jason steals a uniform from Vanessa and Froggy fakes an I.D. (Neri likes their turbo-elevator) The other kids at ORCA wonders who she is, especially Damien who gets a bit of a crush on her. Neri looks pretty nice in an ORCA-uniform :) Dianne and Winston monitors Charley, and wonder why sometimes another small creature (Neri) swims with him.

Episode 9

Jason and Brett and the others are going on landpermission and Neri shows up and joins them. Damien invites her to the movies and Jason invites Lee and tags along. Neri gets scared and runs away and gets lost in town. Finally they all get back to ORCA and Jason and Lee gets a moment for themselves. Unfortunately Lee’s father (Commander Lucas) shows up in the wrong moment. Neri wonders what kissing is like and tries it on Damien. Lucky bastard.

Episode 10

The transmitter Jason put on Charley breaks down, and Dianne goes out to put on a new one. She attracts Charlie using the recordings of whale-song. Dianne runs out of oxygen but gets rescued by Neri. That way she is introduced to Winston and Dianne. Neri also helps Dianne put on the new transmitter.

Episode 11

Neri again comes to visit ORCA. She agrees to undergo some tests for Dianne. Jason thinks Dianne treats Neri like a science project, not a human. (but she isn’t human so…) Jason and Brett also manages to get Commander Lucas to give Neri an ID. Someone also breaks into Dianne’s lab and steal some of her tapes with whale-song recordings.

Episode 12

Using HELEN they find out who stole the tapes. It’s a guy working for UBRI, the competitive company. It is led by Dr. Hellegren who also wants to be able to talk to whales. His men manages to trap Charley in a bay using an electric fence. (how come the electricity doesn’t just go out in the water?). The stolen whale-recordings was used to lure him into the bay. Dianne also does some more experiments on Neri (and Jason still doesn’t like it, probably because she spends more time with his mother than him) and finds out she has ESP-capabilities. She is able to see things blindfolded. There is also a dance on ORCA which Neri goes to. (wow, she’s great looking in that dress) During the evening she hears Charley call for her and sees with her ESP that he is trapped. She leaves the dance to go find him.

Episode 13

Jason and Brett tells the other kids at ORCA about who Neri really is. This is so they can help with rescueing Charley from the clutches of UBRI. They suceed and Neri and Charley leave to go on migration like whales does every year. Neri kisses Jason in the end :) Neri say they will go to the South Pole, incredible that she can survive at those temperatures.
