Chloe Anderson (played by Sam Barrett) decides it’s time to officially welcome her boyfriend, Theo Poulos (Matt Evans) to the family with a barbecue at the Parata house on At home and away (1:15 p.m. – see our TV guide for listings).
Theo is slightly reluctant to be around Chloe’s protective “brothers,” Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) and Tane Parata (Ethan Browne).
Chloe assures Theo that he has nothing to fear.
However, they don’t know that the villain Nikau is planning to prank Theo…
As the barbecue party begins, Theo tries to chat with Tane and Nikau…but doesn’t get very far.
As an icebreaker, Nikau offers to take a group photo by the garden pool.
Nikau keeps telling Theo to back off…until he’s by the pool.
Will Theo see the fun side after taking an unexpected dip in the water?
Things have been strained between police officer Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) and his sister, Felicity (Jacqui Purvis), ever since he discovered his involvement in illegal gambling at the Salt restaurant.
But the siblings get a chance to relax and unwind when Chloe invites them to the barbecue at the Parata house.
To Felicity’s surprise, the normally serious Cash begins to loosen up after a few drinks.
He’s determined to prove he can be Fun Cash!
But later that night, after a few too many drinks, Cash calls someone and invites them over for a drink at Salt.
And the lucky winner is NOT Cash’s current girlfriend, Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost)…
Meanwhile, Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor) worries about his girlfriend, Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman).
Ziggy’s garage boss Justin Morgan (James Stewart) hasn’t heard from her either.
Are Dean and Ziggy’s latest problems worse than he thought?
