Is his relationship all over?
Australian-paced episodes of Home and Away include spoilers, which some UK viewers may want to avoid.
On the most recent Australian episodes of Home and Away, Tane Parata and Felicity Newman announced their shocking separation.
Following some contentious arguments regarding Felicity’s drinking, Tane and Felicity parted ways in Australia on February 16’s triple episode day.
Since the accident that occurred on the day of her wedding to Tane, Felicity has been drinking a lot.
In this week’s Australian episodes, Nikau, Tane’s nephew, found Felicity’s hidden supply of alcohol and alerted Tane that she appeared to be in trouble.
But, when Tane attempted to help his fiancée, she denied having a problem and moved into the campground to avoid being observed by her family.
In the most recent episodes of the show, Felicity took her rejection of Tane’s backing one step further.
Tane was devastated when Felicity gave her engagement ring back and announced the end of their relationship.
Tane honestly thought that it would be the end of their relationship, but Nikau worried that Felicity would soon regret pushing him away.
Nikau made the decision to tell Tane how much he obviously means to Felicity after thinking back to the sincere gift she had secretly prepared for the wedding.
Says Nikau “You have no idea how much you mean to her—she was even learning her vows in Te Reo Mori. Those emotions don’t just go in an instant. She’s having difficulties, but it doesn’t mean she no longer loves you.”
Tane subsequently clarified, though: “She has made it very plain that she is attempting to do all in her power to drive me away. She doesn’t want to be with me, and I’m powerless to stop her, Nik. I can’t make you do that.”
Felicity confided in her brother Cash about how she feels that drinking is the only way to shut out the unpleasant memories of the crash as Tane left Summer Bay for a few days to clear his brain.
When Tane eventually makes it back to the Bay, will his love with Felicity still have hope?
In April, Channel 5 will air these moments for Home and Away viewers in the UK.
