The Bay more than delivered this year!
Tori and Christian tie the knot
Tori (Penny McNamee) struggled with her sentiments throughout the beginning of their relationship, which concluded in a wonderful event full of celebration and love. Christian (Ditch Davey) proposed to his girlfriend after only a few months of dating.
However, a patient called Rachel (Marny Kennedy, below) who was gravely injured in a skydiving accident nearly ruined their journey down the aisle.
Believing he was destined to save Rachel, Christian pushed Tori away and postponed their special day.
Rachel died in a devastating twist, forcing Christian to reconsider what was most important to him: Tori. Before opting to go to London with baby Grace, the couple married in a small garden ceremony in front of friends and family.
Kieran takes Martha hostage
When Martha’s (Belinda Giblin) bad boy Kieran (Rick Donald) came in the Bay, he managed to persuade everyone – except his mother – that he’d changed. He kidnapped her and demanded a ransom when she refused to give him money.
Dean and Ziggy loved up
When Dean was seriously injured, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman, pictured below with Dean) realized that her affections for him had never faded. She ended her connection with Tane (Ethan Browne), but it wasn’t all smooth sailing for Dean, who was dismayed and resentful of his sluggish recovery.
Lewis revealed as hospital killer
Lewis (Luke Arnold, top) began killing patients in the doctor’s care in order to exact vengeance on Christian, whom he blames for his wife’s death.
Lewis grabbed Christian, strapped him to a gurney, and prepared to inject him with a fatal cocktail when his plan to ruin Christian failed. Yikes!
Who knocked off Susie?
She was the charming real estate agent who made a fortune by deceiving others. Someone desired retribution in a special whodunnit narrative, and Susie’s (Bridie Carter, top, with Shane Withington as John) body was discovered floating in the sea.
Her death brought many people into the spotlight, including Leah (Ada Nicodemou) and Justin (James Stewart) – until it was discovered that the perpetrator was a previous victim.
Chemical attack at Salt
A crowded gala is an ideal location for a masked assailant to strike. Tane was witnessed collapsing after an unknown stranger slipped a narcotic into his drink. The figure then surrounded him with a deadly vapor and left him to die.
The vapor, on the other hand, spread through the Surf Club’s vents, sickening everyone! The guests, it’s safe to say, did not have a good time.
Cliffhanger car crash
Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) fled the Bay after his failed attempt to revive his romance with Bella (Courtney Miller). Dean (Patrick O’Connor) swerved to avoid a kangaroo while looking for him. Doctor Logan (Harley Bonner, bottom) managed to pull Dean alive from the wreckage in a classic “cliffhanger” episode.
Mac’s downward spiral
Mac (Emily Weir) turned to booze to mask the agony after being rejected by her partner and suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage. As Mac sought to come to terms with his loss and move on, the scenes were filled with emotion.
Justin’s drug hell
Justin began taking heavy painkillers after a serious surfing accident in order to prepare for an upcoming competition.
His reliance on the medications, on the other hand, nearly destroyed his relationship with Leah, who pleaded with him to seek assistance. Justin confronted anybody who stood in his way until his body went into shock and he fell.
Nikau cheats on Bella
When Nikau scored an unexpected modeling job, the possibility of fame and wealth pushed him to places he’d never imagined. But it came at a price: Bella (above) was lost after he cheated on her with a seductive modeling agent.
Chloe whacks Matthew
Chloe (Sam Barrett, above) picked up a brick and attacked her aggressive father Matthew (James Sweeny, above) to stop him from harming her mother Mia in the season finale. Is it true that she assassinated him?
