On Home and Away, Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) has been ranting about the injustice of losing his uncle, Ari.
Ari and his fiancee, Mia Anderson (Anna Samson), had a bittersweet reunion with the Parata family when they married in a last-minute wedding ceremony at Northern District Hospital.
But tragedy occurred just as Ari and Mia uttered their wedding vows…
Nikau is unlikely to attend Ari’s burial due to his inability to cope with his grief.
Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller), Nikau’s girlfriend, gently pushes him to say a decent goodbye to Ari before his body is taken to New Zealand.
Ari is given an emotional send-off by the Summer Bay community.
Mia bids her hubby a tearful farewell.
The dreadful realisation that she is now a widow dawns on her as she stares at Ari’s casket…
Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) is stirred by her own experience of losing a loved one as the inhabitants of Summer Bay say an emotional goodbye to Ari.
Tane invites people to come by the Parata residence after the funeral and meet with the family.
But the circumstance is too much for Jasmine, who is reminded of her husband Robbo’s untimely death.
He died in a hospital a few years ago after being engaged in a major car accident.
Jasmine seeks emotional support from her lover, Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright).
In the aftermath of the burial, Cash convinces a hesitant Jasmine to pay a visit to Mia.
Mia might use some advice from someone who has experienced the loss of a significant partner.
But will Jasmine be able to achieve it?
