Home and Away

The Home and Away moment fans have been waiting for: Will Tori accept Christian's proposal?

It's been a long time coming for these two lovebirds!

By Stephen Downie
This is exactly what Home And Away fans have been waiting for – the sight of Dr Christian set to redo his proposal to Tori at a romantic dinner for two on the pier in this week's episodes.
But Christian's (Ditch Davey) best-laid plans are in disarray when both he and Tori (Penny McNamee) are called to the hospital to treat injured Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo). Will he survive? And will Christian ever get his proposal back on track?
Remember Christian and Tori previously called off their engagement when he chose treating injured skydiver Rachel (Marny Kennedy) over their upcoming nuptials. The doctors have since made up, but for Christian, a proposal do-over is the key to their future happiness.
"When Christian finds he has a second chance with Tori, he's determined not to mess it up," Ditch, 45, tells TV WEEK. "He's very aware that he may not have got that chance, so he puts a lot of pressure on himself to get it right and make it perfect for the woman he loves."
After a romantic brunch, Tori and Christian arrive home to find the house filled with candles and flowers, courtesy of Justin (James Stewart) and Leah (Ada Nicodemou). But Tori's perfect day is about to get better.
Christian walks a blindfolded Tori down the pier, which is covered in rose petals. She's astonished by the lengths he's gone to make her day special.

"With the help of Leah and Justin, Christian prepares a day of romance to celebrate Tori…leading to a romantic dinner and proposal at sunset on the end of the pier," Ditch says.
And then, as Tori is being wooed, they both receive phone calls – they're needed at the hospital urgently.
"Everything is going perfectly until they have to attend an emergency after a serious car accident," Ditch explains. "The perfect day comes to halt as they rush to the hospital."

There, they discover Nikau is seriously injured with a collapsed lung. And just when the medics think he's in the clear, his condition nosedives.
"Nikau comes into Emergency with significant injuries as a result of the car accident, but after the initial operation, his health takes a serious turn," Ditch says.
Can Christian save the young man's life? Can he pull off his proposal? Tune in to find out.
Home and Away airs Monday to Thursday, 7pm, on Channel Seven.
