Dean will be faced with two different family dramas next week on Home and Away, as Karen and Mac both require his assistance.
In other news, Nikau completes his spiritual journey with Tane.
Here’s a complete list of ten major events coming up.
1. Dean lets Karen see Jai
When Karen promises not to make a fuss about being barred from seeing Jai, Dean is moved. Karen vows not to mess things up for Dean, knowing that if she stirs things up, Amber will revoke Dean’s access to Jai.
Dean finds a loophole and allows Karen to introduce herself to Jai as a stranger on the beach. Karen is thrilled to have the opportunity to play football with Jai, despite the fact that she is unable to reveal her true identity to him.
2. Karen’s boyfriend arrives in the Bay
Karen is cutting herself off from her partner Brett, who recently asked her to marry him, according to Dean. By breaking into Karen’s phone and inviting Brett to the Bay, he takes action.
Karen continues to distance herself from Brett by implying that she is now dating John. Brett sees right through Karen’s act and points out her commitment issues, emphasizing that he’s willing to wait for her to adjust to the idea.
3. Nikau reaches a breakthrough on his trip
Nikau had some difficulties in the beginning of his warrior training with Tane, but he soon settled into a comfortable rhythm with the Taiaha, a traditional Mori weapon that provides spiritual guidance.
Tane is impressed and announces the end of their riverside excursion.
Tane presents Nikau with his father’s Taiaha, which fills Nikau with pride for his achievements. Tane, on the other hand, serves as a wake-up call, reminding them that they must now return home and face what lies ahead with Ari.
4. Tane reunites with Felicity
Tane returns to town and decides that it’s time for the Parata family to accept help once more. He decides to reunite with Felicity and allows Nikau to see Bella.
Felicity is relieved to find Tane still there the next morning after spending the night together at the caravan.
Tane admits that he’s struggling with the pressures of being the family’s leader right now, but Felicity gives him hope by promising that she believes in him.
5. Justin shows support to Theo
Theo is nervous about his chances in court for the Polaris theft, which is coming up soon. He also realizes he won’t be able to appear in court without a suit.
Justin does his best to assist Theo by taking him shopping for a suit. Theo is relieved to have made progress with Justin, their initial enmity having faded away.
6. Ryder moves out
At work, Ryder has another panic attack. Justin brings him home, but Alf insists on continuing their feud by telling Justin to leave.
Ryder, fed up with his family’s bickering, decides to live in a caravan for a while. He also takes a positive step toward bettering his mental health by seeking professional help.
7. Theo stands up to Alf
When Theo is summoned to court, he is relieved to learn that he will be performing community service. He recognizes the gravity of a criminal conviction, however, and confronts Alf when they run into each other at the Diner.
Theo snaps at Alf, accusing him of looking for someone to blame for Ryder’s coffin incident while ignoring his own role in the incident.
Justin fears Theo has started his good behavior agreement on a sour note, but after considering Theo’s harsh words, Alf later makes a heartfelt apology.
8. Dean punches Logan
When Dean learns that Logan is still staying in a motel room with his ex-girlfriend Neve, he is furious on Mac’s behalf. Logan is determined to help Neve with her PTSD, despite the fact that they are not romantically involved.
Dean can’t help himself and shows up at the motel, punching Logan in the face for mistreating Mac.
9. Neve runs away
After walking in on Neve trying to kiss him, Mac confronts Logan. Mac admits to calling the army to report Neve’s whereabouts recently. Neve rushes out without hearing the most important part of the story: Mac hung up without reporting her.
Later, at the surf club, Neve confronts Mac, tackling her onto a pool table. Following the showdown, Neve flees, leaving a goodbye note for Logan.
10. Jasmine is rejected by Cash
Jasmine should invite Cash to move in, according to Irene. Jasmine runs with the idea, planning a romantic takeaway dinner on the pier and surprising Cash with the suggestion.
Cash dismisses the idea of moving in right away and walks away without explaining why. Jasmine is taken aback when she realizes she has misread their relationship.
