Mia (Anna Samson) was recently presented with an unwanted blast from the past when Matthew, Chloe’s (Sam Barrett) biological father, arrived in the Bay seeking to meet his daughter. Despite Mia’s best efforts, the two have now linked, and Mia is living her own personal nightmare as her father and daughter begin to bond.
To make matters worse, the newcomer has strained Chloe’s relationship with Mia, as Chloe is enraged that her mother tried to keep Matthew’s visit a secret from her, and she wants to know why Mia is so opposed to them spending time together. When Mia is unable to respond, Chloe assumes that Mia has a vendetta towards Matthew, which explains why she was never allowed to see her father.
Mia has been urging Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) to tell Chloe the truth, but she refuses, claiming she doesn’t want her daughter to know she was the victim of a sexual assault.
She’d prefer Chloe despised her than have her entire existence and sense of self thrown into disarray. Ari does not want to hurt Chloe, but he believes Mia is making a mistake.
To make matters worse, Mia discovers that Matthew sent Chloe a large sum of money to pay off her portion of the loan to Ryder (Lukas Radovich), but Chloe is completely unaware of the situation. Mia and Ari are upset later when they discover Matthew on their front lawn, his car parked nearby, ready to pick up Chloe so they can go out.
Matthew confronts them both, and Chloe’s attempts to mediate fail. Ari warns him to stay away, but Matthew claims that Chloe is his daughter and that there is nothing Ari can do. Ari snaps and hits Matthew in the jaw, enraged after spending several years raising Chloe as his own daughter.
Mia is horrified, Chloe is disgusted…
but Matthew is galvanized and simply tells Ari: ‘You, my friend, just made a very big mistake.’
