Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Home and Away nurse Lewis Hayes comes dangerously close to killing Ari Parata in sinister scenes on UK screens next week.
Lewis (Luke Arnold) targets Ari as he remains fixated on thoughts of revenge against his nemesis Christian Green.
Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) is currently in a coma after being knocked down in a hit and run incident. Christian operated on him after he was rushed to hospital in a critical condition.
Next week, Christian (Ditch Davey) starts to worry that Ari still hasn't come out of his coma, as he'd expected a significant improvement by this point.
Lewis can't resist stirring things up, insinuating that Ari's family could face a tragic outcome and that Christian is somehow to blame.
The animosity between the two colleagues dates back to Christian being unable to save Lewis's wife Anna when she was involved in a car accident a couple of years ago.
With the pressure mounting, Christian looks through Ari's files and decides that bringing him out of the coma is going to be the best move.
Unfortunately, Lewis has already made a secret visit to Ari's ICU room, armed with a substance that would end his life.
This confirms that Lewis is the one killing off patients at the hospital, after a recent run of mysterious deaths.
Lewis believes that Ari will soon die anyway, but he whispers that now his death will mean something as it'll help to get Christian struck off.
Just as Lewis is about to commit murder, Ari's love interest Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) walks into the room. Not realising what she has interrupted, Mia thanks Lewis for keeping an eye on Ari.
Lewis is forced to immediately abandon his plan, disposing of his syringe and leaving the room.
The next morning, Christian goes ahead with his new plan and successfully brings Ari out of his coma.
Lewis is stunned as Mia happily reports that Ari is now awake. It dawns on Lewis that things nearly went very differently thanks to him – but will this wake-up call be enough to stop his revenge plans?
