The aftermath of a vicious chemical attack has left shockwaves in the community. Marilyn (Emily Symons) has been placed in an induced coma after a delayed reaction, Martha’s (Belinda Giblin) organs are failing and Tane (Ethan Browne) is worst affected as the one who was the primary target.
Mia (Anna Samson), Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), and Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) have been monitoring Tane in the hospital from afar, waiting for the poison exposure to reduce enough for them to be at his side. Finally, they are allowed to enter his room, and they begin to worry when he will awaken.
They press Logan (Harley Bonner) for a prognosis, but he is unable to deliver one, much to their dismay. Instead, the doctor appears perplexed by the medical riddle and suggests that Tane should be awake by now, angering and frightening the Paratas.
Logan approaches Ari with an offer after some consideration: there is a medical remedy that could assist Tane regain awareness, but it comes with hazards. Bio-scavengers, he suggests, are a solution that is only theoretical or in the early stages of clinical studies.Logan claims that the treatment is the only one that has the ability to bring Tane back, but it also has the potential to fail.
Ari is left as the one to decide whether or not he will take a gamble with the risky medical procedure.
Will he take a chance and see if it works out?
