Next week on Home and Away in the UK, Nikau will have to deal with Dean’s fury as Rose discovers Tex’s real identity as the bikies put their gym plan into action.
When Rose first met Tex (Lucas Linehan) a few weeks previously, it served as a helpful diversion from her love for Cash (Nicholas Cartwright), the boyfriend of Rose’s stepsister Jasmine (Sam Frost).
Rose had no idea that Tex was leading a double life, though. Tex, a Death Adders biker, was actually sent to Summer Bay to investigate the Parata family.
It turned out that the armed robbery against the gang, for which the recently deceased Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) had previously served time in prison.
The gang leader Marty (Ben Wood) has decided that the new owner Tane (Ethan Browne) must be the one to pay it back, and he’ll do it by allowing a gang member to work there in order to launder money via the firm. The money was later used by Ari and Mia (Anna Samson) to purchase the gym.
Tane sent Ari’s stepdaughter Chloe (Sam Barrett) to live in New Zealand for her security as threats against the family increased in an effort to get him to agree, and he soon understood why Tex was so sure of himself.
After seeing Tex kissing Rose, he said to Felicity (Jacqui Purvis), “I guess we know why he’s not terrified of cops.” He is having sex with one.
Tane could only say that her lover was not who he seemed to be when Rose noticed the tension between her and Tex. It was enough to pique Rose’s interest because online searches for Tex’s name came up empty.
The next week, Rose’s memories of Tane’s statements are still fresh, and the mystery deepens after finding out why Tex abruptly quit working at the campground. Tane is growing anxious because the job he had mentioned at the gym is due soon and Tex isn’t returning Rose’s calls.
Tex apologises to Rose when he eventually returns to Summer Bay and says that he’s not used to people worrying about him.
Rose chooses to check Tex’s licence plate as he departs after promising to meet her later in the day.
She learns that Tex is actually Leigh Wheeler, a well-known member of the biker gang, and that this is his real identity.
As a police officer, Rose approaches Tex and asks him if he only got involved with her on a dare because she can’t be with someone like him. Tex acknowledges that at first it did seem like way, but he really did fall for her.
Rose goes along as Tex uses all his charm by requesting that he allow her some time to reflect. It will have to remain totally private between them in the meanwhile.
Rose arrives at the Parata residence and informs Tane that she is aware of the truth regarding Tex and is curious as to their current situation.
Tane resolves to tell Rose what’s going on against the Parata norm, but they are cut off by Tane’s phone, which informs them that his new “employee” has arrived at the gym.
After being provided the gym’s bank account information, Genevieve creates a month’s worth of new members to account for the huge amount of cash being placed. Tex introduces Tane to Genevieve.
Tex reassures Tane that Genevieve is skilled in what she’s doing despite Tane’s certainty that it will appear suspicious.
Rose informs Tane that removing Chloe from the situation was the appropriate move because Marty is dangerous and has been charged with kidnapping, gun possession, and attempted murder.
She also mentions that they can look for the bikies’ headquarters using Tane’s phone’s location records.
There is no way Rose can guarantee Tane’s safety, therefore she must inquire as to how far he will go to bring things to an end.
“Whatever it takes,” responds Tane.
When Tane is brought inside by the bikie HQ’s guards the following day, there is a disturbance.
What a pleasant surprise, says Marty.
Where is Tane going?
Nik is upset that Tane appears to be complying with Tex’s requests, especially after he broke up with Bella (Courtney Miller) to keep her safe.
When Emily Weir’s Mackenzie tells Dean (Patrick O’Connor) that she’s spoken to Emmett (J.R. Reyne), Bella’s coworker, she questions why Dean didn’t inform her that Nik and Bella had broken up.
Dean learns about the situation and is astonished. He then tries calling Bella in New York right once.
A defeated Nik isn’t up for a debate when Dean goes up to the club to confront him because he already knows he’s a piece of dirt. Nik seems to be as miserable as Bella, and Dean backs off, telling Mac that something is wrong.
When Flick learns the news from Mac, he is likewise taken aback. Flick had to play stupid in front of Mac, claiming that it must have just been the distance even though she immediately understands why Nik did it after being told the truth about the bikies.
When Dean is finally able to speak with Nik, he switches tactics and politely inquires as to why he broke up with Bella.
Dean can see through Nik’s excuse that he was just tired of her absence and is now even more miserable than before.
Dean is adamant that Nik and Bella can resolve their issues, but Nik isn’t interested in hearing it.
When Dean finally gets a chance to talk to Bella, he lets Mac know how upset she is. She was absolutely taken by surprise by Nik, who also declined to offer any type of justification.
But Bella has also made the decision to remain in New York on a long-term basis now that she has no Nik to go back to.
