Home and Away to air car crash cliffhanger as Nikau story takes a dramatic turn

·2-min read

Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Home and Away's biggest cliffhanger of the year so far will air on UK screens next week.

The long-running soap went on a two-week break for the Olympics on Australian screens in July, so show bosses wrote in a dramatic stunt to mark the occasion. The episode was billed as the mid-season finale for Australian viewers.

As UK airings of Home and Away are a few weeks behind, the must-see moment will air on Channel 5 on Friday, September 10. As there's no break planned for UK viewers, we'll then see the aftermath the following Monday (September 13).

The drama kicks off when Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) flees from Summer Bay after his latest failed attempts to reunite with Bella Nixon.

Nikau believes that Bella (Courtney Miller) could be giving him a second chance when she invites him over to the pier apartment to talk.

Nikau takes the opportunity to finally answer Bella's questions over why he cheated on her with Sienna Blake. Although Nikau tries his best to explain, Bella thinks that his answers don't make sense.

When Bella later warms to Nikau despite the frosty start, Nikau gets carried away by leaning in for a kiss. Bella is disgusted by his behaviour and kicks him out.

Word of Nikau's actions later gets back to his family, forcing his uncle Ari to step in and confront him.

Nikau decides to leave, but Ari warns him not to come back if he walks out of the door now. Nikau ignores the warning and departs anyway.

The next morning, a regretful Nikau is out in the countryside after hitching a ride out of Summer Bay and being left stranded overnight.

Nikau calls Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) to bring him home, so Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) offers to drive her.

Later, while Dean, Mia and Nikau all travel back together, a kangaroo bounces out in front of them in the road.

Dean swerves to miss it, but it causes the car to launch off the steep hill and roll down the embankment. Along the way, Nikau is thrown violently from the car.

When Dean's vehicle finally comes to a halt, it's teetering on the edge of a cliff with no sign of life inside the wreckage. Will Dean, Mia and Nikau survive?

Home and Away airs these scenes on Friday, September 10 at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5. Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
