Every year, Home and Away ramps up the drama, romances, and bombshells, and based on the teasers we’ve seen so far, the 2022 season will not disappoint.
Fans have been treated to a suspenseful trailer that teases what we might anticipate from our Summer Bay favourites in the next year.
Things appear to be picking up just where they left off in November’s finale, which saw Ryder buried alive in a coffin, Felicity and Tane pack their belongings and go on a road trip, Ari propose to Mia, and Mia, Chloe, and Matthew get into a furious disagreement.
Tane and Felicity’s burgeoning romance appears to be heating up in the trailer, with the couple enjoying a romantic retreat.
Felicity dances with her headphones on while camping with Tane, who is clearly smitten, before the former bartender realises he’s standing right next to her.
“Is this how you dance when you don’t think anyone is looking?” Felicity cheekily giggled as Tane questioned her with a cheeky look.
Later, Tane tells Felicity, “I want you with me,” causing her to say, “Well, that’s where I’ll be.” Aww!
Tane’s “caring and nurturing side” will be seen next year, according to Ethan Browne, who plays him on TV WEEK.
“He accompanies Flick on a brief vacation excursion to help her cope with the trauma of her father’s death, and throughout their time together, they consolidate their friendship and grow closer as a couple,” he explained, adding that the two are a match made in heaven.
“He keeps her calm and relaxed, and she adds a lot of high energy into his life, so the polarity between the two works well.”
And it appears like love is in the air in Summer Bay, with Mackenzie and Logan’s chemistry at an all-time high.
“You can’t have too much of a good thing!” Logan said as the two were seen canoodling on the beach. before kissing Mackenzie deeply.
Our other Summer Bay favourites, on the other hand, aren’t having such a good time. Ryder’s predicament on the other side of town is getting increasingly worse. He is still encased in a coffin and appears to be growing increasingly agitated.
Ryder and Theo went deep into the jungle together in the finale to take on their “most epic challenge yet,” which saw Ryder imprisoned in a coffin and trapped underground.
However, Ryder became stuck deep within the dirt when Theo tumbled over and was struck unconscious, with no sign of aid. He furiously taps on the coffin and fights to breathe in the trailer.
Will he be able to recover from this terrible prank gone wrong?
Meanwhile, the narrative of “the murder that no one saw coming” continues to unfold. Chloe is still trying to come to terms with the fact that she killed her father Matthew just weeks after he arrived to the Bay to see her.
In the sneak peek, Chloe tells her mother Mia, “I murdered someone, and I have to live with it for the rest of my life.”
Before she and Mia placed Matthew’s body in the trunk of her vehicle, Chloe says in the second trailer that her existence “is the outcome of something so horrific.”
Bella then confronts Chloe, boldly asking, “It was you, wasn’t it?” Chloe begged her to keep the murder a secret, and she agreed.
“Only by being regular will you be able to pull this off. It only takes one blunder to ruin everything “Bella informs her.
Things aren’t looking good for Mia, who just accepted Ari’s marriage proposal and can be seen speeding away from a police officer on the highway before a car chase ensues.
The new trailer, which was released today, shows Mia being stopped by several police vehicles before being handcuffed and led away by officers while a forensic team searches her car’s boot.
A tearful Mia is then seen desperately begging Ari to protect her, to which he responds: “I’ve got you.”
In early 2022, Channel Seven will reintroduce Home and Away.
