Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) learns unsettling news from Summer Bay detective Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) in Home and Away as she battles to come to terms with Ari Parata’s death.
Mia Anderson is devastated by the death of her spouse Ari, who passed away just after they exchanged wedding vows.
Mia is scarcely eating, and the flowers and phone calls from caring friends seem to go unnoticed. Ari’s absence is reflected in everything in the house.
Her daughter Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett) is also hurting, but she does her best to assist her mother with the help of her friend Bell Nixon (Courtney Miller).
When Chloe goes outside for a breath of fresh air, she runs into Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich) and Theo Poulos (Matt Evans), who present her with a memorial film that they believe will bring solace to both Chloe and Mia…
Chloe adores it and watches it over and over again, but Mia is unimpressed…
She can’t take it anymore and lashes out at the boys, who are left reeling…
They were merely attempting to assist!
Mia is further saddened when she receives a package containing Ari’s belongings, including his wallet, which contains a photograph of Mia and Chloe — a symbol of his love for his family…
Ari may have left, but his murder allegation remains unresolved, so Mia visits the police station to learn more…
Ari confessed to the murder and was facing life in prison when Chloe inadvertently killed her father Matthew Montgomery and Mia tried to hide for her.
So Mia is relieved when cop Cash informs her that the investigation is closed and they can move on.
You’ve got to question why Jasmine hasn’t broken up with her boyfriend Cash…
It took them a long time to get together, and then he recently rejected her suggestion that they move in together, humiliating poor Jasmine.
She felt like crawling into a hole and dying of embarrassment!
Cash’s hesitancy has always been due to his urge to protect his troubled younger sister Felicity (Jacqui Purvis).
When Felicity learned that he hesitated to move in with Jasmine because of her, she gave him a hard time, asking him to tone down the big brother act and focus on his love life instead of worrying about her all the time!
As a result, Cash changed his mind and informed Jasmine that he would be moving in with her.
The problem is, he’s sharing with not only Jasmine, but also Irene (Lynne McGregor)!
Cash is having trouble settling in and feels awkward around Irence, and matters aren’t made any easier when he has a humiliating night-time encounter with Ms Roberts!
Irene discovers him strolling around the house in just his pants when he nips down to the kitchen for a sip of water!
Irene is unconcerned about it. She’s seen it all before, love, as she tells Jasmine.
She also warns Jasmine that Cash will need time to acclimatise to his new role as housemaster.
However, later at the Diner, the sexy cop feels embarrassed with Irene, so he skips a lunch date with Jasmine and rushes back to the station to have his lunch at his desk.
Jasmine, frustrated, shows up and puts him on the spot…
Is he reconsidering his decision to move in?
