Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor), Nikau Parata (Kawakwa Fox-Reo) and Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) are all in a bad way after being involved in a car crash out in the countryside.
Dean's sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) reels from the news that Dean is in a critical state and has already had to be revived several times.
As Dean's life remains on the line, Tori and Dr Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner) clash over the best course of treatment.
Tori is taken aback by Logan's arrogant outburst and makes it very clear who is in charge of the Emergency Room at the hospital!
Meanwhile, Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) is in a spin over Dean.
Things didn't end well between Ziggy and ex-boyfriend Dean after THAT secret kiss in the city!
Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) and his girlfriend Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) reel from the devastating news that Mia has had a miscarriage after all the drama of the car crash.
Mia's headstrong daughter Chloe (Sam Barrett) does not take the news well.
She takes her heartbreak out on Ari, blaming him for pushing Mia to try for another baby after the tragic death of their first baby, Kauri years earlier.
Ari feels helpless as Mia requests to be left alone.
