Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) still hasn't spoken to his girlfriend Mia, since they clashed over his heavy-handed treatment of his nephew Nikau.

And now Mia is nowhere to be found.

Ari is unaware that Mia received a secret SOS call from Nikau, and drove-off with Dean to pick-up Nikau out in the countryside.

While out looking for Mia, Ari bumps into his ex-girlfriend Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) out for a surf.

Things have been rather awkward between Ari and Mackenzie since their break-up.

But sensing Ari is troubled over the state of play with Mia, restaurant boss Mackenzie provides a listening ear.

As Ari and Mackenzie have a heart-to-heart, can they finally mend their broken past?
