Nikau is about to go on another date with Naomi in the upcoming episode of Home and Away in the UK.
Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) in Summer Bay is shocked to find that he has been nominated for a bravery award.
Two weeks have passed since Nikau, who was doing lifesaving duties at the surf club, prevented Naomi’s (Jamaica Vaughan) sister Goldie from drowning. Nik grudgingly agreed to have lunch with Naomi as a thank you after some convincing from John (Shane Withington), and although he enjoyed talking with her, he assumed it would be the end of the matter.
Nevertheless, Nik found himself back in Naomi’s company after being transported to the hospital, where he discovered her working as a nurse, after walking on a sea urchin during another rescue last week.
Nik was kept in for observation overnight despite having minor surgery to remove the spine from his foot. He spent the entire time with Naomi, who stayed to visit with him after her shift finished.
Nik senses a rat when John invites him into the office on his day off and asks him to clean it. When Naomi later showed there, she appeared to know the cause of John’s odd behaviour but kept her mouth shut.
Later, John calls everyone into the club room to share the good news that Nik has been nominated for a bravery award for saving Goldie. When the cheers stop, Nik asks Naomi if she was aware of it; she responds that she had nominated him.
Nik is uneasy as John describes the splendour of the awards event they will be attending. He was merely doing his job; he doesn’t want all of this attention or to feel uncomfortable at a fancy meal.
Nik admits to Naomi that he’s dreading it, even though uncle Tane (Ethan Browne) is aware that the late Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) would be supporting his nephew.
When Naomi unexpectedly offers to go with him and hold his hand while Nik’s girlfriend Bella (Courtney Miller) is away in New York, he is shocked.
Nik is about to accept a “date” with a different female.
