This week on Home and Away in Australia, as someone trashes the farmhouse and leaves a threatening warning, Rose is left wondering if Mali is a cheat!
Even though Mali (Kyle Shilling) and Rose (Kirsty Marillier) have only known each other for a few short months, their relationship has already experienced more ups and downs than Alf’s blood pressure.
Their most recent setback occurred last week when Rose asked her brother Xander (Luke Van Os) for assistance in devising a plan to salvage Mali’s board business. The shop is still operational, but Mali’s primary source of revenue comes from the surfing lessons he offers, which he hasn’t been able to continue giving because of a ruptured eardrum.
Later that night, when the three of them got together with Mackenzie (Emily Weir), Xander had the notion that he and Mac could take over the classes.
They held their first session the following day, and Mali was thrilled with how well it went. He instantly told Rose that he loved her after thanking her for her help and went over to speak with Xander.
Rose was taken aback—not only was this the first time that he’s told her he loved her, but the way he said it so casually took away from the moment somewhat.
“I bet he’s told chicken burgers he loves them with more passion!” Rose later told Xander as she downloaded to him. As Rose proceeded to avoid Mali for the rest of the day and took further advice from Irene (Lynne McGranger), it was down to Xander to inform Mali of his faux pas when he realised something was off.
He apologised and explained to Rose that he wasn’t thinking when Mali subsequently caught up with her. Rose explained that she was in shock at the moment, notwithstanding his observation that she didn’t respond to him.
Mali then advised that he retract his statement so that they could both act as though it never took place. Rose chuckled and nodded in agreement, but we couldn’t help but sense sadness in her response.
Irene pointed out that reality sometimes falls short of expectations, but as Rose described to her, saying “I love you” should be a very unique occasion. Rose is aware that if his gesture had been more significant, she would have been able to respond.
According to TV Week, Rose chooses to take the initiative this week with some help from Mac.
Rose takes the evening off from work and travels to the farmhouse where she makes Mali a special candle-lit meal.
However, they are stunned to see how destroyed the house is when she subsequently drags a blindfolded Mali inside!
Dinner has been spilled all over the floor, and the tablecloth has been spray-painted with the menacing warning, “Stay away from my wife.”
Mali and Rose are both perplexed, but soon Rose starts pressing Mali for clarification. Who is this wife he’s allegedly been having an affair with?
Rose’s head is whirling from this bizarre occurrence, but she quickly switches back into police officer mentality as she returns to work to report the crime. Mali professes to know nothing.
Mali is furious that Rose might even consider his cheating on her as she calls him in for a grilling.
Mali is left to vent to Xander as Rose spends her time doing a thorough investigation. Something happens to put the cat among the pigeons just when he and Rose appear to be making progress in the right direction.
Mali is left wondering whether fate is trying to tell them something despite Xander’s reassurance that his sister occasionally makes rash decisions. He and Rose might simply not be destined to be together.
We have our own hunch about what the message on the tablecloth might mean—and while we’ll have to wait and see how things turn out this week, we feel that it could just be a case of mistaken identification.
Recall that last week, while assisting Mali in teaching a group of kids to surf, an impressed mother asked Xander if he would think about giving her son an individual lesson.
However, when Xander later met up with the pair, it quickly became apparent to him that the lady was more interested in trying to score a date with him than she was in her son’s lesson.
“What did you say?” Mackenzie teased as Xander recalled the encounter to her. “Did you say ‘I’m sorry but that’s gonna cost extra?‘”
Although Xander didn’t dignify Mac with a response, it was clear that he wasn’t going there.
Could this unnamed lady’s husband have somehow discovered her attempt to flirt with the instructor at Mantaray Boards… and in doing so gone after Mali in a jealous fit of rage?
