The handyman appeared at just the right time to help Rose get over her forbidden feelings for her police partner, Senior Constable Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright).
Who also happened to be in a relationship with Rose's half-sister, Jasmine.
But policewoman Rose remains unaware of Tex's true identity.
It wasn't just good timing that brought Tex to Summer Bay.
He's part of the biker gang that has been menacing the Parata family and now plans to use the local gym to launder money!
On today's episode of the Aussie soap, Rose starts to wonder when she'll ever get some alone time with Tex.
WHERE does he keep sneaking off to?
Rose's police senses start to tingle as she begins to sense that Tex has been deceiving her...
As the reality of the situation starts to become clear, Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett) begins to realise that escaping to New Zealand might be the safest option.
Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) and his nephew, Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo), have already helped Chloe pack her bags.
Now, she just needs to sneak out of town without any of the biker gang noticing...
Meanwhile, after discovering the terrible truth about the biker gang's theats against the Parata family, Tane's girlfriend, Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis) decides to take a stand against terrible Tex...
Nikau has decided to stick around in Summer Bay and help his uncle, Tane, take on the biker gang.
However, realising that all their loved ones could be targeted, Nikau realises he's got no choice but to make a HEARTBREAKING decision about his long-distance relationship with girlfriend, Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller).
Could this be the end for Nikau and Bella?
