|“||It has been four years of good times and bad times. Of adventures and close shaves. I would have never guessed that things would have turned out this way. But as we swim onto uncharted waters, as long as we stay together, we will always be a school… of fish!||”|
"The Big Woo" is the final episode of Season 3 as well as the Fish Hooks series finale that aired on April 4, 2014. It is graduation week at Freshwater High and with school ending and emotions running rampant, Bea and Oscar’s friendship is tested when they grapple with the idea of finally admitting their feelings for one another.
Bea finally begins to realize her feelings for Oscar. She asks Shellsea for advice, who instantly tells her that Oscar is definitely not for her. Oscar begins to imagine college life, where he and Bea would just stay friends as she would tell him about all her new relationships. He then realizes that if he wants their relationship to change, he has to change it himself. Bea and Oscar continue to grow closer, Bea still feeling like she and Oscar have something. Milo tells Oscar that he should not tell Bea about his feelings because it will ruin the friendship, but Oscar is not totally convinced. After seeking advice from her parents, they tell Bea that she will know she is in love when she feels it - "The Big Woo." Bea does not feel the woo, so she does not think that she loves Oscar.
At graduation, Oscar finally admits his feelings to Bea, who cuts him off and tells him she does not know how she feels. Oscar is crushed, and Bea goes to make her valedictory speech. In the middle of the speech, she suddenly felt the woo after memories of her and Oscar float by her, so she admits her feelings to Oscar in front of the crowd. Oscar finally heard the words he wanted to hear his entire life, and is overjoyed, as is Milo. Bea gains her confidence and gives her speech, and everyone graduates. Esmargot and Albert share a kiss, Jocktopus, Jocktopapa, and Rocktopus share a picture, and everyone is happy. Bea, Milo, and Oscar take pictures with Bird Mom. The series ends with Bea and Oscar sharing a blocked kiss, their fins intertwined.
Mr. Baldwin fools Milo for "not being graduated", and he gives him his diploma, congratulating him. But before Milo leaves off to become "king of the world", he throws a pie on Mr. Baldwin's face.
