In forthcoming scenes in Australia, Home and Away’s Ari Parata will be rushed to the hospital in an emergency dash, prompting his fiancée Mia Anderson to make an unexpected decision.
Things aren’t looking good for Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), who is presently in prison after falsely confessing to the murder of Matthew Montgomery (James Sweeny) – who was actually killed by daughter Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett) as she defended her mother Mia (Anna Samson) from him.
His condition worsens as he begins to feel stabbing pains in his belly, and Mia is worried when she receives a call from the prison informing her that Ari has been transported to the hospital, according to TV Week.
Ari is moaning in anguish from the pain as she arrives to see him. Doctor Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner) explains that he believes Ari has appendicitis, and Mia is distressed at the prospect of Ari suffering yet another major setback while awaiting his sentencing hearing.
“Ari can’t bear the prospect of Mia and Chloe going to prison for this horrific catastrophe, and in the end, he can’t figure out a way to make it all work out for his love and his stepdaughter,” Rob said of Ari’s predicament. “In the end, he decides to take the fall because he is confident in his abilities.”
Ari’s discomfort, unfortunately, continues to worsen, and Logan begins to wonder that his initial diagnosis may not have given the complete picture of Ari’s situation.
Mia becomes concerned when Logan plans to do more tests on Ari in order to figure out what’s actually going on. While Logan assures her that Ari will be alright, it’s evident that he’s worried about what’s going on.
And when Logan studies the scans he’s done, he discovers something far more dangerous than he could have imagined…
When Logan tells Ari and Mia that they’ll have to do further tests to figure out what’s wrong with Ari, Mia notices that he’s pushing down his anxieties. She proposes to Chloe a radical idea: she wants to marry Ari right away, before they experience any further hurdles.
Tane (Ethan Browne) and Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) arrive at the hospital the next day with a suit for Ari and tell him to put it on for a family photo. Ari is perplexed until Mia, dressed in a wedding gown and bearing a bouquet, enters the room.
Mia proposes to Ari in a touching way, asking him to marry her today. Ari accepts Mia’s invitation with tears in his eyes and prepares to marry his fiancée at the hospital.
Meanwhile, Logan stands by, conflicted as he considers Ari’s deteriorating health.
Will Ari and Mia be able to share a happy moment, or will Ari’s illness lead to even more heartbreak?
