Just as Gemma (Bree Peters), Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), Tane and Nikau are passing through airport customs, an issue arises.
Ari, Tane and Nikau are all denied access through customs due to the fact that Colby (Tim Franklin) – who is investigating the Diner break-in – has placed a travel ban on the trio.
“Gemma gets through, but the boys don’t,” says Ethan. “It certainly comes as a big shock to all of them.”
What will the Paratas do now?
Colby recently stepped up his investigation of the break-in, during which a terrified Leah (Ada Nicodemou) was pushed to the ground by a hooded intruder.
After paying an unexpected visit to the Parata house and finding an item of clothing he believed matched evidence from the break-in, Colby previously ordered a search warrant of the premises.
Meanwhile, we saw that Colby is still harbouring strong feelings for his beautiful ex Mackenzie (Emily Weir), who in turn is smitten with none other than Ari.
Could the police officer be allowing his personal life to cloud his judgement?
Certainly, Mackenzie was far from impressed when she arrived at the Paratas to find Colby turning the house upside down.
