”This is a massive moment for Flick.”
Grieving from the sudden loss of his brother, Tane is barely holding it together this week. Now, the rock-solid relationship he has with Felicity could fall apart when she announces her future plans.
Tane (Ethan Browne) is back in Summer Bay after burying Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) in New Zealand on Home and Away. Shortly after the community paid tribute to him with a traditional Maori ritual, he and Nikau (Kawkawa Fox-Reo) left.
Before taking Ari’s coffin out, Tane and Nikau performed an impassioned haka in his honor. Mia (Anna Samson) continues to grapple with her loss as the Parata lads find closure at home.

Back home, Tane and Nikau feel the hole Ari left in their life. Mia can’t bear to be in the house. Tane knows he has to step up for his family, but how? He seeks out girlfriend Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) for love and comfort.
He discovers her dancing with headphones on at the caravan park. Tane’s mood is lifted by the vision, and he gladly embraces the woman he adores.
“Around Tane, Flick can be herself – loud, entertaining, and a little stubborn at times. With all of its flaws, “Jacqui explains to TV WEEK.
Tane bares his soul to Felicity in a heart-to-heart about losing Ari and what it means for his role in the family, as well as their financial burden. It’s been on his thoughts for a long time.

Felicity listens and provides a shoulder to lean on. Tane then laments on what Ari and Mia lost and reveals that he sees a real future with Felicity. A house, a family, a life.Felicity smiles gratefully, but inside, anxiety takes hold. Is this what she wants?
“For Flick, this is a watershed moment,” Jacqui explains. “She panics as her dread of commitment grows.”
Felicity seeks guidance from her brother Cash (Nicholas Cartwright). She isn’t sure she wants children because of their difficult upbringing. Tane, on the other hand, she is aware of.
“If she tells him,” Jacqui continues, “he might not want to remain with her.” “Flick has the potential to sabotage this relationship by getting in her own way.”
She bravely tells Tane the truth, with some help from Cash. She may never desire to have children or marry.
Tane recoils and promptly asks her to leave: “I can’t do this”, he says.Uh oh! Is this the end for Felicity and Tane?

Alf is stuck in the middle of his family’s drama
This week may finally yield some positive outcomes in the Stewart family’s difficult quest to heal their differences.
Alf (Ray Meagher) chooses to pay a visit to Martha (Belinda Giblin) in Merimbula, and he invites his daughter Roo (Georgie Parker). She declines, stating that she is not yet ready to play happy families.
Martha refused to take Roo’s kidney in a life-or-death transplant earlier this year, and as a result, her grave health is deteriorating. Roo believes she has simply given up on her life and the people she cares about.

Alf tries to get Roo to mend fences, but his attempts only make things worse. Justin (James Stewart) tries to help the couple by advising Alf to use a gentler approach. He then advises Roo to make every day matter, stating that Ari’s untimely demise demonstrated the value of life.
Alf tries to persuade Roo once again at the Surf Club, but she refuses. Exasperated, he departs towards Merimbula. John (Shane Withington), who is close, then admits that he understands Martha’s position because he, too, would not put his children in danger.
Roo is stunned. Perhaps, she’s been wrong this whole time…
