I interpret the last scene as a rape/suicide. The mermaid has a knife in her hand and a hole in her chest... The male seems to be either assaulting her or trying to rescue her. It's open for interpretation.
Yeah. I agree. lol I love the work and the expressions/emotions given off by the characters. But what exactly is going in the second? The mermaid prince is saving the blonde guys life in return for saving his.
