In a fit of wrath, Millie accuses him of the death, and Xander becomes so overcome that he vomits…
Meanwhile, Ryder (Lukas Radovich) is getting ready to leave the Bay for a new adventure working on a cruise ship, but his farewell party does not go as planned. Chloe (Sam Barrett) flees with Theo (Matt Evans) after Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) confronts her about the harmful contents of her diary.

Here’s what’s on tap for the week starting June 13th.
Xander forms an emotional bond with a car accident victim
After seeing a car accident involving Logan and newcomer Millie, Xander jumped into action alongside Jasmine. He decides to withhold the truth from Millie while they wait for aid after discovering her companion dead farther down the road. Later, he feels terrible and is disturbed when the doctors fail to inform her of the truth. When he tells her herself, she sobs, and Xander vomits into a nearby garbage because he is filled with emotion. Logan is disturbed as he watches – why is Xander becoming so attracted to this stranger?
Is Logan or Millie to blame for the murder?
Logan and another driver, Millie, collided while driving around a bend, but the major need now is to get everyone medical help. However, once everyone is in the hospital, it becomes clear that Millie’s friend Jo died in the accident. Cash and Rose investigate the incident and come to the conclusion that it was caused by driver mistake. One important question now remains: was Logan or Millie to blame for the fatal car accident?
Nikau discovers Chloe has been photographing Bella while she sleeps
When Nikau and Bella learn that Ryder is going – and that Roo is throwing a last-minute farewell party for him – they set about creating a farewell card filled with old photographs. Nikau knocks Chloe’s diary off the couch and a snapshot falls out as they depart for the party. When he pulls it up, he notices it’s a photograph of Bella sleeping. He examines the diary, horrified, and learns Chloe’s emotional manipulation. He tells Bella the truth, furious, that Chloe has been deceiving us!
Is there trouble in store for Alf and Martha as she pulls away from him?
Roo has put Martha on a stringent wellness regimen in the hopes of getting her healthy enough for a kidney transplant, but Alf has been trying to keep up with the veggie bowls and meditation sessions. When he feels far from his wife – she’s often out at art courses and lunches with pals – the problem escalates. Why doesn’t there seem to be any room for him? Roo urges her father to respect Martha’s privacy, but Alf asserts that it is a husband’s duty to be with his wife. Will the two be able to get through this stumbling block without incident?
Is Theo no longer interested in Chloe because he rejects her kiss?
Following her confused messages, Theo and Chloe have been in an unpleasant place. He’s been a pawn in her emotional games, as she slept with him, pretended to be into him, and then abruptly rejected him for no apparent reason. When Nikau confronts her at Ryder’s party after reading her diary, everything becomes evident. Chloe, humiliated, bolts – and Theo chases after her. When the two reconnect, Chloe tries to kiss Theo, but he pushes her away. Has Chloe permanently damaged her prospects with Theo?
Ryder embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime journey
Ryder has taken the difficult decision to assume a new profession as a croupier on board a cruise liner. He’s glad to be surrounded by friends and family for his departure party, and he’s moved when John arrives with a present that’s far more considerate than he could have imagined. The party takes a turn for the worse when Nikau confronts Chloe about her diary, and he rushes away with Bella, but as Ryder is being driven out of the Bay by Roo, Bella runs down the road to say her final goodbye…
