Tane Parata’s life hangs in the balance as Mackenzie Booth’s illegal poker night operation threatens to end in catastrophe.
Mackenzie (Emily Weir) is still in debt to PK (Ryan Johnson) after he conned her over her illegal poker games and said she owed him $100,000.
Having failed to spend the night with him to ‘clear’ her debt, Mac and PK are now seeking vengeance – putting Mac in grave risk, according to TV Week.
Emily from Mac remarked, “PK wants to win, control, and win.” “He’s egotistical and hates being told no. He wants to punish her for deceiving him.”
In the new scenes, Mac and Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis) devise a scheme to settle Salt’s debts and get rid of PK.
Mac’s brother Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor) doesn’t like the plan and offers to bring in the River Boys to “take care” of the matter.
Mac prepares another poker night in PK’s honour and promises he’ll get the winnings, but she’ll use the money to pay off her obligations.
Dean’s girlfriend Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) overhears and fears Mac and Dean are playing PK dangerously.
The scenario becomes much more uncomfortable when PK’s colleague Nathan (Ryan Panizza) arrives and informs Mac that she must abandon her revenge plan immediately or face dire consequences.
When two guys ambush Mac and Dean as they close up Salt, Mac realises she should have taken Nathan’s warnings seriously.
One of the males brandishes a knife and orders the couple on the ground before robbing the restaurant.
Felicity and Tane (Ethan Browne) close the gym and decide to check on Mac.
Dean knocks one of the crooks to the ground, as Tane wrestles with the other. Their intervention drives away the intruders, but Felicity is shocked to find her boyfriend stabbed.
Mac realises that taking Tane to the hospital could reveal her unlawful activities. Felicity proposes they call Mac’s lover, Dr. Logan Bennett, but Mac understands that involving Logan (Harley Bonner) in her unlawful operation will entrap him.
Emily: “Tane could die from the stabbing.” “Mackenzie is put in a position where Tane needs immediate medical treatment, but doing so discloses the illicit behaviour that’s been going on at Salt.”
Mac has a life-or-death decision to make.
