Goodbye for now or forever? Summer Bay is rocked by TWO shock exits

''Tane never thought it would go this far.''

By Tamara Cullen
Tane has gotten in deep with the wrong people.
Now, his only nephew could be in danger.
With nowhere to turn, Nikau is forced into hiding.
This week, gang leader Leon (Will McNeill) is ready to settle old scores and calls brothers Tane (Ethan Browne) and Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) to complete a dangerous job.
Despite doing a trade in recent episodes, it seems Mac's (Emily Weir) Porsche isn't considered adequate payment for the $25,000 drug debt.
Tane can't believe this is happening.
"After all his run-ins with Ari and trying to please him, doing his best to lead a cleaner life, and not being able to express his feelings for Mackenzie for obvious reasons, Tane isn't feeling too good about himself and where his life has ended up," Ethan tells TV WEEK.
Ari has had enough of the games and issues Leon and his crew a firm warning: back off.
But his words fall on deaf ears.
Ari is handed an envelope containing incriminating photos of Tane – if the cops should see them, he could go to jail for years.
"Tane never thought it would go this far and he's gutted to do this to his family," Ethan says.

Taylor offers help and support, but Colby insists she return to her husband.
Taylor accepts his words and returns to Summer Bay with a heavy heart.
That afternoon, she turns to Jasmine (Sam Frost) for help.
"She and Jasmine have a great friendship and it's allowed Taylor to show her true sense of self and independence," Annabelle tells TV WEEK.
"She will always love Angelo."
