Siren season 2 episode 11 preview: Ben and Maddie’s dilemma

Siren - FreeformAs we await Siren season 2 episode 11 to arrive on Freeform next week, there’s a lot of emotional stuff we’re preparing to dive into. That includes the next move for Ben and Maddie in the midst of what is the most difficult choice of their lives so far. Are they going to be willing to stop the treatments on Ryn? If they do that, they will know that Elaine will probably die. Yet, if they continue, there is a chance that Ryn will die instead. It’s the last position that anyone in the world wants to be stuck in, but they can’t just shirk the decision now and walk away. They’re going to have to figure some things out within the next few episodes, and next week’s “Mixed Signals” should be a natural evolution.

So what’s coming up both in terms of Elaine’s treatment, and also a separate story that could prove important? Below, CarterMatt offers up the official Siren season 2 episode 11 synopsis with some additional insight into what is coming:

Maddie and Ben contend with how to help Ryn knowing that in order to help Elaine get better, they will need to continue the procedures on Ryn. Meanwhile, when one of the group gets sirened, there is more drive than ever to get to the bottom of how the siren song really works—further piquing the interest of the military in how Ryn can be of use to them.

Based on this synopsis alone, one of the things we’re getting the best sense of is that through Siren season 2, Ryn is always going to be the target of experiments. It’s a horrible thing to think about but in a lot of ways mermaids for humanity, mermaids are an untapped resource in this show. Nobody really knows all that much about them and because of that, there is a sense of discovery where they’re going to see how to take advantage of them for the sake of science. A lot of times, what is good for humans is not exactly good for mermaids, and we’re pretty sure the same can be said vice versa. This is just going to be a difficult period for Ryn, as she’s going to have to probably figure out how to stop terrible things happening to her.

As for why the military would want to use siren songs for in the first place, that feels fairly simple. If these songs are able to effectively brainwash people for a certain period of time, that is such an enormous tactical advantage that comes along with that. It can completely disarm a group of rival soldiers and allowing them to effectively get whatever they want. It’s a powerful thing, but as a wise man once said with great power comes great responsibility. We’re not quite sure a weaponized siren song is the sort of thing that the world is ready for.
