Home and Away

Home and Away's newcomer family, the Parata's, cause shockwaves this week with an unexpected airport twist

Didn't see this one coming...

By TV Week team
Baby Grace is home safe and sound – but her accidental kidnapper Nikau could be facing serious charges.
This week on Home And Away, Colby (Tim Franklin) calls in Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) for questioning.
The policeman has been told Grace has been returned, but knows the teenager was fleeing Summer Bay and suspects it was in Tori's (Penny McNamee) stolen car.
At the station, Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) and Tane (Ethan Browne) lead a nervous Nikau to his fate.
They, meanwhile, are livid that Colby continues to badger their family with no evidence.
"Ari initially believes Tane robbed the Diner," Rob tells TV WEEK.
"But he also believes Colby is acting out of jealousy more than anything else."

To save Nikau from facing charges of theft and possible kidnapping, the two brothers were complicit in covering up his crimes.
They returned Grace to the Morgans' doorstep before erasing any trace of their involvement. But is it enough to keep Nikau out of jail?
"Nikau wants to come clean about it all, and I think the reason he comes clean will surprise you," Rob explains.
"The reason may not be what you think..."

After heeding the advice of their lawyer, Nikau chooses to stay silent and the family are free to go. At home, the brothers deliberate what to do next.
Gemma (Bree Peters), however, is planning to return to New Zealand to grieve Nikau's late father and wonders out loud whether it's best they all seek a reprieve at home.
A few days later, the foursome head to the airport as Colby continues to investigate the car-jacking. At the Diner, he runs into Alf (Ray Meagher), who inadvertently reveals the Paratas are off to NZ.

Colby panics and races back to the police station, where he orders a block on Ari, Tane and Nikau's passports!
"At Customs, a security block appears on their passports. All the passports fail except one, leaving one person on the other side of Customs in tears and the other three confused," Rob says.
That one person, Gemma, passes through Customs with ease – but the remaining trio are descended upon.
"It's quite possible any of the Parata boys could end up in jail," Rob reveals.

Jasmine defends her actions

Two friends at war, and a terrified mother, are about to cause a dramatic showdown in Summer Bay – and baby Grace could suffer the most.
Jasmine (Sam Frost) has been treading a fine line in recent weeks with her ongoing criticism of Tori's parenting. And this week, her destructive behaviour will be called out when Willow (Sarah Roberts) and Mackenzie (Emily Weir) discover her online mothers group.
At the gym, Willow and Mac confront their friend – but, to their surprise, Jasmine has no regrets about her actions. She inflames the argument further by suggesting Grace will receive better care with someone else.
Stunned, Willow tells Tori's brother Justin (James Stewart) of her conversation, who then orders Jasmine to stay away from their family.

Tori, meanwhile, is worried for her friend and how she's behaving.
"Tori cares deeply for Jasmine, so it's Justin who has to ask Jasmine to give Tori and Grace some space," Penny, 37, says.
It looks like things are going from bad to worse for Jasmine…
