Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian pace episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
This week on Home and Away, Nikau's friends are starting to turn against him for cheating on Bella. As Ryder confronts his mate, things quickly become violent.
The most recent trailer already teased things turning sour between Nikau, Bella (Courtney Miller) and Sienna (Rose Riley), after Nikau recently came clean to Bella about cheating on her with his modelling agent Sienna.
His hopes of ever getting back with Bella are shattered in scenes airing this week in Australia and in six weeks in the UK when she tells it to him in plain terms: "You are dead to me."
However, Nikau actor Kawakawa Fox-Reo told TV Week: "Nikau will always be in love with Bella."
His actions are also starting to divide his friends: while Chloe (Sam Barrett) defends Nikau and believes it's all Sienna's fault for tricking him into cheating on Bella to control him, Ryder (Lukas Radovich) can't justify his friend's actions.
And for both, things will start to get fiery. Chloe confronts Bella and attacks her for breaking up with Nikau. Bella, however, is resolute in her position and tells Chloe to mind her own business.
Meanwhile, Ryder catches up with Nikau, who is in no mood to discuss things or get lectured by his friend. When Ryder pushes him to talk about the affair, Nikau's frustration takes over and he delivers a vicious punch to his mate's face.
Chloe is there to tend to Ryder's bruises, but it's unclear whether the friendship between the two men can be healed as well.
Now that he has lost the love of his life and potentially his friends too, Nikau might be more inclined to take Sienna up on her offer to leave Summer Bay for a three-month modelling stint in Japan.
Will Nikau leave everything behind and move on with Sienna?
