Last week on Home and Away, Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) found himself being harassed by a biker gang, and Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) kissed another woman.
This week, Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) has to decide between his wife or staying in Summer Bay, new band Lyrik puts down roots, and a fan-favourite tries to find love.
Is Alf leaving Summer Bay for good?
After Martha Stewart’s (Belinda Giblin) exposure to toxic chemicals in the Salt attack had irreparable repercussions on her health, Alf’s wife had to receive a kidney transplant from her daughter, Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker).
Martha has been recovering in Merimbula and has decided that she wants to live down there for good. While Alf wants to be with his wife, he hates the thought of leaving Summer Bay.
“I think Roo is concerned that Alf doesn’t think things through clearly, and is very stubborn. So it’s hard to talk things through with him,” Georgie tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
“Roo is probably very worried about Alf leaving the Bay for many reasons. It’s his home and his identity in many ways. But he feels like he belongs with Martha.”
Alf has always been a family man, so it makes sense that he will put his wife’s happiness above his own and it looks like he's going to move.
Georgie is quick to reassure viewers that no matter what happens to her parents, her character is staying put in Summer Bay. However, she jokes that it would mean ‘a lot of travel’ for Roo!
Mackenzie tries to find love
Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) hasn’t had much luck in the love department, but is she ready to give it a go again?
Her last boyfriend left her without even saying goodbye, after she led a criminal gambling ring and made him compromise his morals by performing backyard medical procedures. Before that, she was with Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams), who left her to deal with a miscarriage on her own while he got back together with his ex.
Fans have been desperate for Mackenzie to find her happy ending, and this week, she finally opens up to the idea of a new relationship.
When one of Dean’s surf students asks for Mackenzie’s number, she decides that it could be time to put herself out there. Will this be the start of a brand new Summer Bay romance?
Lyrik settles into the bay
The band Lyrik appearing in the sleepy town has been chaotic, and it seems as though the band is here to stay.
Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis) offers the band the gig of a lifetime - steady work, steady pay, and the opportunity to spend more time with her!
With the chance to be Salt’s ‘regular’ band, the musicians will finally be able to treat music as a full-time job, instead of going from gig to gig.
It was hard enough to convince Bob (Rob Mallett) to play at Salt last week, so only time will tell how persuasive Felicity can be.
