Summer Bay provided Mia a new start, but it also brought back the pain of losing her husband Ari. She’s reminded of him and the future they’ll never have wherever she goes.
This week, she decides it’s time to leave.
Mia (Anna Samson) tells Ari’s (Rob Kipa-Williams) brother Tane (Ethan Browne) about her decision on Home And Away, and he’s disappointed he can’t help.
Ari pledged to keep the Parata family together when he died. Tane is relieved when Mia assures him that he is not to blame; it is simply something she must do. But there’s a snag: Chloe (Sam Barrett) refuses to accompany them.
Both grieving, Mia’s mother and daughter have struggled to interact with one another, and Mia’s decision may push them even further away.
“For Chloe, her grief tends to be enmeshed with observing her mother’s grief,” Sam tells TV WEEK.
“It’s difficult, because she’s so close to Mia. Not being able to spend time with each other because of the different way they grieve is really sad.”
When Chloe arrives to work on her day off, Marilyn (Emily Symons) offers some advice: be clear about what you want.
Chloe continues to anger, but she notices Marilyn’s comments. Is she capable of surviving without her mother?
“Chloe doesn’t feel a sense of comfort anymore,” Sam says. “She’s guarded. Both of them are so devastated.”
Tane goes to the gym to work out his frustrations with Mia. He attempts to persuade her to stay when she arrives for work, but she is unhappy here.
Tane becomes enraged – how could she abandon them? Dean (Patrick O’Connor) rushes in to defend Mia, and the two men nearly collide.
Chloe begins her planned speech as soon as Mia arrives home. She prefers to remain in the Bay. Mother and daughter are at a crossroads: they each require different things, but they also require each other more than ever. Will they stay or will they leave?
Justin is attacked as Dimitri turns violent
This week, Dimitri (Salvatore Coco), who recently admitted to abusing Theo (Matt Evans), accuses his sister Leah (Ada Nicodemou) of brainwashing his son to turn him against him.
Stunned by his aggression, she orders him out of town.
“When Leah realises what Dimitri has been doing, it changes her opinion of her brother,” Matt, 25, tells TV WEEK.
“She no longer wants anything to do with him until he sorts out his temper.”
Dimitri, on the other hand, does not depart Summer Bay as instructed. And when he shows up at the garage a few hours later, his wrath hasn’t subsided.
Dimitri is knocked out cold as Justin (James Stewart) tells him to take responsibility for his deeds.
When Justin fails to return home, Leah rushes to the garage, where she discovers him barely awake and calls an ambulance.
