On Home and Away (1:45pm – check our TV Guide for listings), Nikau Parata (played by Kawakawa Fox-Reo) has some explaining to do after his uncle Tane (Ethan Browne) finds out that he spent the night with the new girl in town, Heather Fraser (Sofia Nolan).
After ending his relationship with his long-distance girlfriend, Bella Nixon, Nikau is now single and ready to date again.
The assertiveness and directness of Heather impress the beach lifeguard.
And they definitely have a flirtatious vibe going on!
Tane is concerned that Nikau may sleep with another lady so soon after splitting from Bella.
Nikau, though, cautions his uncle to keep his mouth shut.
So it appears like Nikau and Heather’s carefree fun is just beginning!
But not everyone appreciates having Heather around.
After reading her Tarot cards, Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons) has been having a strange feeling about Heather.
Marilyn tries to let Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) know that Heather, her new tutoring student, is more than she first appears to be.
However, Roo cannot deny admission to a paid student merely because Marilyn feels uneasy.
As Roo invites Heather to stay at the Caravan Park, Marilyn is unable to suppress her worry.
It is decided that Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) will be discharged from Northern District Hospital.
Bree Cameron, a hospital doctor, is worried that the copper isn’t ready yet (Juliet Godwin).
Cash is still healing from a gunshot wound and is having a hard time moving on from his break-up with Jasmine Delaney, his prospective bride-to-be. Jasmine has chosen to stay in the country rather than come back to Summer Bay.
Felicity (Jacqui Purvis), Cash’s anxious sister, consults Bree about what would be best for her brother.
She and Bree work up a care schedule that will let Cash heal at home.
Felicity extends an invitation to Cash to move in with her, Tane, and Nikau in the Parata home.
But when Felcity discovers a distraught Cash holding the engagement ring he was planning to propose to Jasmine with, it quickly becomes apparent that Cash still has a long way to go on the path to recovery.
