While Mackenzie has longed for a steady relationship, her current one with Ari could be over much sooner than she thought.
This week, her secret feelings for Tane (Ethan Browne) threaten to be exposed when an irrational moment of jealousy lands Mackenzie (Emily Weir) in a bar fight with Amber!
After a long week, Willow invites Mac for a girls' night on the town. The pair are joined by Ziggy… and Amber – someone Mac has watched flirting with Tane since she arrived in town.

In the club, the tension between them escalates when Tane arrives. By the end of the night, Amber's flirty advances leads to a brutal lashing by Mac, and the pair wind up in a violent scuffle. Ziggy attempts to break it up and gets in the way of a flying fist!
"Amber is a wild card and not shy, that's for sure!" Maddy tells TV WEEK. "She's out to have a good time, but she's also not one to mess with."
The following day, Ziggy wakes with a black eye, causing raised eyebrows around town – in particular Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), who knows Mac was at the club. His interest piqued, he then finds Tane and Mac quietly discussing the night and demands answers.
Will Mac confess her torn feelings and risk losing Ari for good?
