This week, Summer Bay continues to be rocked by Hugo’s decision to dump Martha. Hugo insists that it is the best thing for Martha, but when he shows up at the farm to collect his things, the pair end up in bed. Sadly, Martha realises that their night together has made no difference to Hugo, and she goes to the Surf Club Christmas party alone. Hugo’s bizarre behaviour continues to confuse those who love him. He makes an airline reservation before saying goodbye to his family. Driving out of town, Hugo is then confronted by Suzy! She tells him that if he refuses to return to Indonesia, Martha is the one who will pay. Petrified, Hugo tries to warn Martha but she has turned off her phone. Will Suzy hurt Martha?
Meanwhile, Nicole and Aden struggle to cope with their new feelings for each other. While Nicole is still in a relationship with Liam, Aden feels it is too soon after Belle’s death to start seeing someone else. However, when Nicole discovers that Liam cheated on her with Poppie, she sees red and dumps him. Aden is then unfairly fired from his job, and in a rage he steals Poppie’s car and decides to skip town. He runs into Nicole and the pair go for a drive together – only to be arrested for joyriding by a local cop. The pair are locked in the cells for the night, and the tension between them reaches fever pitch. Aden shows Nicole Belle’s final letter, and explains that she has given him permission to be with her. Will the argumentative pair finally give in to their mutual attraction?
Elsewhere, Miles is confused by Leah’s cryptic behaviour and mistakenly believes she has feelings for him. She is shocked when he makes a move on her and reveals that she has actually fallen for Hazem, the Surf Club decorator! Already hurting from Kirsty’s decision to leave him, Miles is left totally mortified. His humiliation is compounded when Colleen reports the incident to all and sundry. The devastated teacher seeks solace in drink and parties with some ‘schoolies’ on the beach, before mysteriously disappearing. Where has Miles gone?
