The Argument
The Excuse
The Silence is the twentieth episode of the first season of Sea Princesses.


Tubarina has to give a talk to the class about the history of Salacia, which doesn't quite go to plan when Marcello and Hugo play a trick on her and leave her speechless and stumped.


Marcello sabotages Tubarina’s speech on the history of Salacia so that she is missing a few pages and ends up having to try again, making mistakes in the process. This hilarity makes the whole class laugh, even Polvina and Ester. Angered, Tubarina decides to stay silent towards her cousin and her friends.

Polvina, Ester and Marcello try various ways to make Tubarina speak. They try to convince her to play hoopball, but despite a slipup, Tubarina is not fazed. Marcello decides to fake being caught in a whirlpool, but he overdoes it, causing Tubarina to see through the deception.

As a last resort, the three dress themselves up as ghosts, but Tubarina and Gummy foil this plot. Just as Marcello decides to give up, he, Polvina and Ester realise that all Tubarina wanted to hear was an apology, so they apologise for laughing during her speech.

Following this, Tubarina tells Polvina and Ester that while she did feel lonely in the two days she was silent towards them, it gave her some time to think of a list of things to talk about. Polvina and Ester tell each other that they will never make her silent again.
