Later, Chloe presents Ryder with her share of their debt. She then tells him that she wants to buy him out of the food company so they can sever all ties. Ryder makes a selfless choice in response, telling Chloe he doesn’t want any money for the company.
2. Alf defends Marilyn
Alf returns to Summer Bay following a desperate plea from Marilyn, who is still not herself. He is shocked when Marilyn reveals that she quit her job at the Diner because she didn’t feel supported.
Alf is stunned and confronts Irene, who has to explain that Marilyn’s behavior has been out of control since the gas poisoning incident.
3. Alf receives a shock
Alf realizes that Irene was right about Marilyn when he sees her scolding Logan, which is completely irrelevant. Alf defends Logan and tries to make Marilyn understand that the doctors only want what’s best for her.
Alf and Logan manage to make a breakthrough with Marilyn and she finally agrees to get help. Marilyn leaves with Logan for treatment at the hospital, leaving everyone to hope that she will now make a full recovery.
4. Ari hits Matthew
Ari points out to Mia that Chloe wouldn’t want anything to do with Matthew if she knew the truth about him. Mia refuses to tell Chloe about her traumatic past with Matthew, believing it would be too much to handle.
Later, an argument breaks out when Ari and Mia find Matthew smugly waiting on their front lawn before picking up Chloe. Matthew taunts Ari by reminding him that he is Chloe’s father and there is nothing Ari can do about it. When Ari loses it and kicks it, Matthew claims he just made a big mistake.
5. Ari and Mia are being blackmailed
Chloe apologizes to Matthew for Ari’s behavior, but slips up when she inadvertently mentions Ari’s criminal record. It’s music to Matthew’s ears as he realizes Ari would go back to jail if he reported the punch.
Matthew warns Mia that he’s ready to go to the police about Ari unless she stops standing in the way of his relationship with Chloe. When Mia reports this to Ari, she accuses him of making things worse.
6. Felicity and Cash face an emotional anniversary
It’s almost the anniversary of the death of Felicity and Cash’s father. Cash prepares to attend an annual memorial, but he tells Jasmine that Felicity usually never comes with him.
Felicity explains to Tane that she won’t go because she doesn’t believe the official story of her father’s death, which has been accepted by the rest of the family. Even though all the evidence points to her father committing suicide, Felicity believes he was murdered.
7. Logan faces another disgruntled patient
Dean puts his surfboards up for sale because it’s extremely unlikely he’ll be able to surf again. Ziggy tries to encourage Dean to have more hope, but it doesn’t help.
Later, Logan offers to buy Dean a drink at Salt but is stunned when Dean accuses him of ruining his life. Dean is convinced that Logan is responsible for his inability to surf, sure that he must have made a mistake treating him in the hospital after the car accident.
8. Nikau fights with Theo after a prank
Nikau’s first day as a surf lifesaver turns out to be more boring than he expected, as John asks him to wash the Polaris. Suddenly however, Theo rushes over and claims someone is drowning. As Nikau leaves, prankster Theo steals the Polaris to use in one of his online videos.
Theo abandons the vehicle when it runs out of gas and his reckless behavior earns him a furious response from John and Justin. However, this is nothing compared to Nikau’s reaction as he later confronts Theo at the Surf Club and starts a fight.
Nikau realizes he made a big mistake when John confronts him for fighting while wearing his lifeguard uniform.
9. Martha remains in a worrying state
Martha is briefly considered for home dialysis, but doctors are concerned about how quickly her condition is deteriorating.
Concern mounts that Martha may not be able to hold the life-saving transplant she needs, but Alf tries to put on a good face and claims his wife is fighting harder than anyone in the hospital.
