This week on Home and Away in Australia, Felicity is determined to show her renewed commitment to Tane, as she proposes on the beach. But is Tane ready to pick up where they left off?
In this week’s episodes, Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) attempts to put a difficult couple of months behind her by taking a risky step to declare her love for Tane once more (Ethan Browne).
Flick had been on a downward spiral since the dramatic car crash on what was supposed to be her and Tane’s wedding day, which left best friend Eden (Stephanie Panozzo) in a coma for several weeks.
Despite being fortunate to have survived the accident and the accompanying blaze with only minor injuries, Flick has continued to struggle with the trauma she went through. Flick turned to alcohol to assist with the recurrent flashbacks of being trapped in the burning car, pushing Tane away when he realized how she was handling it.
Flick moved out to a caravan and dramatically threw her wedding ring back at Tane, announcing they were over.
Flick didn’t realize she needed to change until she attempted to evade a roadside breath test being administered by her brother Cash (Nicholas Cartwright).
Flick made the decision last week to confront the source of all of her mental health issues over the years by visiting her foster father Gary’s (Peter Phelps) farm for the first time since she was 16 years old.
The Newman children were taken up by Gary and his late wife Katherine when their father committed suicide when Flick was only 9 years old and their mother Jennifer had already passed away. Flick had rebelled against their relationship and left as soon as she was able to. Afraid of what she’d caused Gary to endure, she just recently allowed herself to see Gary again just before her wedding.
Gary took Flick to her parents’ graves where it seemed she was finally able to put her past to rest.
“She was afraid of commitment because she didn’t want to be let down or hurt like she was when her father committed suicide,” Jacqui told TV Week.
“In her eyes he gave up and just left. So, she didn’t want to feel that pain again. But now she has gained some clarity and closure on her dad’s death, she is ready.”
As Flick spoke with Gary, he pointed out that there was another voice that was missing from the conversation… Tane.
After leaving him a voicemail, Flick was surprised when Tane showed up at the farm the very next morning.
Although Flick initially tried to avoid the elephant in the room, she eventually admitted that she still loved him and wanted to work things out… though they both knew it wouldn’t be easy.
Flick is all loved-up once again as Tane drives her back to Summer Bay this week. Talking with Cash, she admits that she was wrong when she previously said that people like them never get happily-ever-afters, having come to realise that Tane is the one she’s destined to be with.
“For some reason, he still loves me,” Flick explains. “I know how I lucky I am, I never want to lose that.”
Flick is eager to put right everything from the past few weeks, as she suggests bringing all her stuff back to the Parata house from the caravan.
Cash brings up the wedding as Tane and Cash unpack the car, but it’s obvious that Tane isn’t now thinking about getting married.
Tane is being cautious by not going too quickly, which is maybe not surprising given the tremors Flick experienced before to the anticipated nuptials.
“I’m just glad to have her back,” he states. “That’s all I care about right now.”
Flick, on the other hand, is determined to show her renewed commitment, as she seeks out the engagement ring.
“I don’t know what our future looks like,” Flick tells Tane as they later walk along the beach. “But I know I want us to be together.”
Tane is stunned when Flick then gets down on one knee, ring box in hand, and asks if he’ll marry her.
For a moment Tane can’t speak; although this is everything he wants, he can’t help but be hesitant given Flick’s recent instabilities when it comes to commitment.
Will Tane be able to say yes?
