Despite previous episodes of Home and Away’s warning signs, Mac (Emily Weir) is drawn to PK (Ryan Johnson) and the money he brings to the table.
Mac agrees to host a high roller event at Salt at his request. The wealthy clientele will excite the game and boost business with a $5000 buy-in.
There’s just one problem: Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) is unable to attend.
Her name doesn’t sit well with Cash’s (Nicholas Cartwright) clients because she is his sister.
When Mac counters that she is the only one who knows how to run a poker night – or even the rules of the game – PK suggests that he take his business elsewhere. Mac nods and walks away.
Mac perseveres in his conversation with Flick, who urges him to see past PK’s charm. Something isn’t right. Mac, on the other hand, refuses to listen once more.
Felicity, would you go to the cops?
Mac and PK are getting ready to welcome visitors that night. Mac is going solo because Felicity is unable to run the tables. The bar owner struggles to keep up as Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and Tane (Ethan Browne) arrive to show their support.
Felicity returns home, ignoring Mac, and prepares to leave for Salt. She is interrupted by a knock at the door, which is answered by poker player Nathan (Ryan Panizza) and a massive burly man.
Before locking the door behind him, Nathan offers she stay at home for the night…
Back at Salt, PK has been on a roll. He then informs Mac that the House has lost and that she is owed $100,000 by the players! PK offers to cover the cost if she repays him in some other way, and hands her a card with a hotel address.
Mac’s mind is racing.
“She desperately wants to be debt-free, and she believes that if she gives PK what he wants, all of her stress and problems will vanish. Then she feels disgusted by PK’s abilities, fear that he might harm her, and shame for her love and devotion to boyfriend Logan.”
Felicity is set free the next morning. She’s on a mission to learn what happened at the poker night. She’s shocked to learn of PK’s deception before explaining that the House can never lose at poker.
Dean (Patrick O’Connor), Mac’s brother, is reeling. He is well aware of Mac’s desperate need to repay her debt.
But that’s not all: Mac has vanished with no trace of her.
Is she still considering PK’s proposal?
