Here’s a full collection of nine big moments coming up.
1. Ryder and Chloe cut ties for good
After finding Chloe’s recent kiss with Theo, Ryder confronts her. Chloe points out that she’s a free agent, and the kiss was initiated by Theo. As tensions build, Matthew, a newcomer, jumps in to defend his daughter.
Later, Chloe pays Ryder her portion of their loan. She then informs him that she wants to buy him out of the food business so that they may be completely divorced. In reaction, Ryder makes a selfless decision, telling Chloe that he doesn’t want any money for the company.
2. Alf defends Marilyn
Following a desperate call from Marilyn, who is still not herself, Alf arrives to Summer Bay. When Marilyn admits that she left the Diner because she didn’t feel supported, he is taken aback.
Alf is taken aback and confronts Irene, who explains that Marilyn’s behavior has been out of control since the gas poisoning.
3. Alf receives a shock
When Alf watches Marilyn berating Logan, which is utterly out of character, he realizes that Irene was correct about Marilyn. Alf defends Logan and tries to persuade Marilyn that the physicians simply care about her well-being.
Marilyn ultimately decides to get some therapy after Alf and Logan make a breakthrough with her. Marilyn and Logan leave for medical treatment, leaving everyone confident that she will make a full recovery.
4. Ari punches Matthew
Ari points out to Mia that if Chloe knew the truth about Matthew, she would avoid him like the plague. Mia refuses to tell Chloe about her painful past with Matthew because she believes it will be too much for her to handle.
When Ari and Mia see Matthew smugly waiting to pick up Chloe on their front lawn, an altercation ensues. Matthew insults Ari by reminding her that he is Chloe’s father and that she has no control over it. When Ari loses it and hits him, Matthew claims he has made a huge error.
5. Ari and Mia are blackmailed
Chloe apologizes to Matthew for Ari’s behavior, but she makes a mistake when she mentions Ari’s criminal record accidently. This is great news for Matthew, who knows Ari would be sent back to prison if he reported the punch.
Matthew informs Mia that unless she quits interfering with his relationship with Chloe, he will report Ari to the police. When Mia tells Ari about it, he blames her of making things worse.
6. Felicity and Cash face an emotional anniversary
It’s almost been a year since Felicity and Cash’s father died. Cash is getting ready to attend an annual memorial, but he informs Jasmine that he doesn’t normally bring Felicity.
Felicity tells Tane that she won’t be traveling since she doesn’t believe the official account of her father’s death, which the rest of the family accepts. Despite the fact that every evidence goes to her father killing himself, Felicity believes he was killed.
7. Logan faces another unhappy patient
Dean sells his surfboards because he is unlikely to be able to surf again. Ziggy tries to persuade Dean to be more optimistic, but it’s in vain.
Logan later offers to pay for Dean’s drink at Salt, but is taken aback when Dean accuses him of ruining his life. Dean is convinced that Logan is to blame for his inability to surf, believing that he must have made a mistake while treating him in the hospital following the car accident.
8. Nikau fights with Theo after a prank
When John asks Nikau to wash the Polaris, his first day as a surf lifesaver turns out to be less exciting than he had anticipated. Theo, on the other hand, runs over and claims that someone is drowning. Prankster Theo takes the Polaris as Nikau speeds away, intending to utilize it in one of his web films.
When the vehicle runs out of gas, Theo abandons it, causing John and Justin to become enraged. That, however, pales in comparison to Nikau’s reaction when he confronts Theo in the Surf Club and initiates a brawl.
When John confronts Nikau about fighting in his lifesaving costume, he realizes he’s made a huge mistake.
9. Martha remains in a worrying condition
Martha is briefly considered for home dialysis, but the doctors are worried about how quickly she is deteriorating.
Concern mounts that Martha may not be able to hold on for the life-saving transplant she needs, but Alf tries to put on a brave face and claims that his wife has more fight than anyone else in the hospital.
