On Home and Away, things aren’t looking good for Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams).
Ari was brought to the hospital in excruciating pain.
Ari’s family is overjoyed to see him again, although they wish it was in a more pleasant setting.
Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner), a hospital doctor, checks Ari and determines that his appendix is in horrible shape and must be removed.
Following the surgery, Ari will be admitted to the hospital to recover.
On the plus side, it means the Parata family will be able to pay him regular visits.
Mia Anderson (Anna Samson), Ari’s fiancee, is even hoping that this means Ari’s sentencing would be postponed.
However, things quickly take a DISASTEROUS turn as Logan confesses that things are even worse than they feared.
Ari has appendix cancer, and tumours have already spread throughout his abdomen!
The Parata family is taken aback.
Ari was on the verge of a prison sentence, but now he’s on the verge of DEATH…
