The start of a big new plot for Ryder and Chloe on this week’s episode of Home and Away in Australia is likely to end in tragedy.
Ryder and Chloe joined Bella and Nikau at the fancy afterparty to celebrate the conclusion of Nikau’s first campaign shoot in Monday’s Australian segment. The client hosted a glitzy affair, complete with an open bar, plenty of schmoozing, and taco van catering.
The afterparty leads to a burst of motivation this week, with Alf and Roo pressuring Ryder to think about his future after he resigned from his job at Salt.
When Alf summoned his nephew for an impromptu family meeting, he wanted to know what Ryder had planned for his future – whether he had one at all. Chloe, who had agreed to accompany her boyfriend for moral support, was the one who was able to assuage Alf’s fears. She assured him that they had a plan in place, one that was supposed to be a surprise.
When asked what the plan was, she calmly told them that they only wanted to get everything in order before a major reveal. We need to get all of our ducks in a row, just like any new business.
As the week progresses, the two remain tight-lipped about their new plan, before Roo gives Ryder an ultimatum: reveal his and Chloe’s career strategy by that afternoon, or she’ll give him one of her own.
Chloe, on the spur of the moment, tells Roo that they’re starting their own taco truck.
She was inspired by the caterer at Nikau’s party. Ryder had spoken with the owner of the food truck, who told him that they still have temp jobs available because the van is employed by various events and travels from location to location.
It seems ideal: they get to fly around, putting their mutual love of hospitality to good use while cooking Mexican food and mixing cocktails for eager customers.
It’s a spur-of-the-moment suggestion, but it’s about to unleash a big plot with far-reaching implications for current and potential Summer Bay residents.
What exactly did you do? Ryder, panicked, wonders aloud if they should go ahead with her mad suggestion. They can make a fantastic cocktail, but neither of them knows how to start a company.
On Monday, Ray Meagher, who plays Alf Stewart, appeared on Seven’s Sunrise programme to discuss a new Home and Away commemorative coin and to reveal more about the exciting new storyline.
On the show right now, Ryder is a little rattle-less. We’re trying to help him out, he and his girlfriend, who I’m not sure whether she’s good or bad for him, but they’re looking to start a Mexican food truck together.
They don’t have any money and believe that these items will simply appear in your driveway and that you will go away and sell, y’know, Mexican food. But, in any case, we’ll see how things go.

We wrote about an exciting new plot set to hit Summer Bay later this year in our first spoiler roundup of the year back in February. Since so many of Home and Away’s outdoor scenes are shot on Sydney’s Palm Beach, we also get sneak peeks at what’s to come months before it airs.
The cast and crew gathered on the beach in January to film the opening of Ryder and Chloe’s latest business venture, and fans and paparazzi witnessed some surprising scenes. Their colourful new food truck, called ‘La Cucaracha,’ which translates to ‘The Cockroach’ but is also a traditional Spanish folk song, looked fantastic parked outside the Surf Club.
Ryder is dressed smartly and stands on the Surf Club’s 44th floor, using a megaphone to announce the grand opening of their new company.
Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost), a fellow Summer Bay resident, appears to be one of their first customers, dressed up for the occasion. Ryder tries to drum up sales by giving out posters, while Chloe greets customers in a stylish apron.
Despite all of their efforts, tragedy hits soon after. As we predicted in February, the launch would be rocked by a massive explosion, causing massive devastation and injuring several Summer Bay favourites.
When Dean (Patrick Thompson) uses a fire extinguisher to put out the flames and police, ambulances, and fire engines arrive, it becomes apparent that many residents were injured in the blast. Ryder, Jasmine, Bella (Courtney Miller), and Marilyn (Emily Symons) are all injured in the explosion, which will have a long-term impact on the harbour.
One of the fans who attended the shoot snapped a selfie with Sam Frost, who was wearing make-up to conceal a head wound.
The explosion also coincides with the addition of Marny Kennedy, who played Rachel Young on Bite Club and Between Two Worlds. She was first seen filming in January in a scene where her character walks along the beach with Christian Green and talks to him (Ditch Davey). She was seen clutching his arm and wearing a halo brace to protect her head, implying that she had sustained a serious neck injury.
Rachel is injured when Ryder and Chloe’s food van explodes, and she is left lying on her back. Despite the fact that the explosion was filmed a month after she filmed her beach scene with Christian, she was not wearing her neck brace during the shooting of the explosion in February.
One explanation is that the explosion was postponed due to logistical issues, causing the scenes to be shot out of order, and that the explosion is what caused her spinal injury in the first place. Might she, on the other hand, be on her way to recovery and this is a massive setback?
There are currently no information about the character or the duration of Marny’s time on the show.
The storyline about the Mexican food truck will begin this week, with the explosion expected to air in June or July.
