Xander lies to a patient to keep her calm next week on Home and Away in the UK, but he quickly finds himself being blamed for her friend’s death.
This week, the Delaney siblings are all on hand to help after a terrible vehicle accident, but Xander (Luke Van Os) gets too close to one of the drivers.
Following the finding of their sister Jasmine, Rose (Kirsty Marillier) and Xander have only recently decided to relocate to Summer Bay (Sam Frost). While Rose was able to get her transfer to Yabbie Creek approved swiftly, Xander is still looking for a paramedic post.
Because there were none available at Yabbie Creek, Jasmine sought guidance from Logan (Harley Bonner), who checked with old colleagues at the Reefton Lakes EMS station. Xander was still without joy, but Logan did put in a nice word for him.
Despite this, Xander and Jasmine chose to visit Reefton Lakes, only to be involved in a catastrophic accident along the way. While Xander proceeded to assist Millie Hudson (Zara Zoe), the driver of one of the cars, Jasmine was surprised to see Logan behind the wheel of the second car.
When we return to the action next week, Logan has no recollection of what caused the collision and is eager to assist, despite Jasmine’s warning to stay motionless.
Meanwhile, Millie becomes concerned about her friend Jo, who was a passenger in her car and had just left to seek assistance.
Xander searches but is heartbroken to discover Jo’s body a short distance from the crash site, her death caused by a catastrophic head injury.
Xander is obliged to withhold the truth about Millie’s best friend’s death from her in order to keep her quiet, instead telling her that Jo is being looked after by Rose and Cash (Nicholas Cartwright).
Millie is tachycardic and having trouble breathing, and Xander realises she has a tracheal deviation.
When Xander discovers that the ambulance is still 20 minutes away, he has no choice but to operate on Millie to release the trapped air.
When Jo (Katie Horky), a local paramedic, arrives on the scene, she is impressed with Xander’s work.
Millie asks Xander about her buddy as she is placed into the ambulance, but he still can’t bring himself to tell her that she is dead, instead assuring her that Jo is being cared for.
Xander, on the other hand, is unable to let it go and goes to the hospital. He’s angry that no one has told Millie the truth yet, but Rose tells him that Jo’s family has yet to be notified.
After Cash and Rose go to inform Jo’s family, Xander decides to tell Millie that Jo is no longer alive. When Logan sees Xander vomit after leaving Millie’s room, it’s evident that it’s had a big impact on him.
When Logan speaks with Millie the next day, it becomes evident that neither of them recalls the accident. According to Cash, the accident appears to be the result of driving error, but which motorist?
When Xander returns, he is taken aback when Millie turns on him—he pledged to look after Jo, and it is his responsibility that she is no longer alive!
Has Xander’s efforts to assist Millie merely made things worse for her?
In Summer Bay, Mackenzie (Emily Weir) realises she’s out of her depth when the mysterious PK puts her in an impossible predicament (Ryan Johnson).
Mac has made a deal with the devil after promising to throw an exclusive event for PK and his associates after hosting three illegal poker nights at Salt in an attempt to clear her business obligations.
Nathan (Ryan Panizza), a regular player, had introduced Mac to PK, who was interested in participating in their third tournament. Despite the fact that Mac told him that all of the spots were taken, she was persuaded when he told her she could set her own price.
PK offered Mac an offer she couldn’t refuse after a successful evening: a single table event with a $5000 buy-in.
Felicity (Jacqui Purvis), who has been hosting the evenings, was hesitant at first, but accepted reluctantly after Mac explained that the single event could produce $50,000 and wipe out all of Mac’s obligations.
Preparations are underway this week when Mac informs Flick that Ryder (Lukas Radovich) has left. Flick wonders how they’ll manage, but Mac says she’ll take care of the bar because she doesn’t know anything about poker.
When PK comes in to speak with Mac, it’s evident that he doesn’t want Flick present, so Mac has no choice except to dismiss her. Then PK makes an unusual request: because Flick is the sister of a copper, he doesn’t want her at the poker night.
Mac promises PK that there has never been any problems and that Flick is the only one who knows how to organise the event, but when PK threatens to take his business elsewhere, Mac realises she has no alternative except to run the evening herself!
When Flick realises she’s been edited out, she freaks out and tells Tane (Ethan Browne) that she thinks PK is up to something bad.
Flick decides to use her brother’s occupation to her advantage by requesting him to run a check on PK after questioning him, who claims he’s playing games. Cash points out that he can’t just do random checks whenever he wants, especially because he only has two initials to go on. Rose’s attention is piqued by overhearing the request…
Flick has been able to send Tane and Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) out to keep an eye on things as the event begins that evening, but she still has a bad feeling about what’s going to happen. She leaves the Parata residence, realising she can’t leave Mac to deal with it alone… only to find Nathan blocking her way out, accompanied by a heavy, Barry (Trent Johansen). There’s no way Flick is going anywhere!
The proceedings come to a close at Salt, and it appears like Mac has pulled it off. But it’s only then that PK reveals the truth: the house has lost the game, and she owes the participants $100,000!
PK assures Mac that he has taken care of the obligation on her behalf, and that the only person she owes money to is him.
Mac is baffled as to how it happened, but PK assures her that she should not be concerned as he recommends an alternative method of paying off her obligation to him, handing her a card with his hotel’s information.
With Tane gone home after receiving a text from Flick, Mac has no choice except to confide in Ziggy, who informs her she can’t do what PK suggests. Mac reassures her that she’ll be OK and sends her on her way.
But later that evening, Mac rocks up to PK’s hotel room… is she about to make a huge mistake?
