Nikau behaves coldly towards Chloe at Ryder’s farewell party. Theo also blanks Chloe, struggling to forgive the way she treated him recently. Marilyn notices Theo’s icy conduct and follows Chloe outside. A downcast Chloe admits that she hurt Theo and deserves his hostility. Marilyn thinks nothing is so broken that it can’t be fixed, encouraging Chloe to make amends with Theo.

Trying to make peace, Chloe sits down with Theo to apologise. However, seeing Chloe’s sincerity sends Nikau into a rage. At the top of his lungs, Nikau confronts Chloe about the contents of her diary in front of the farewell party guests, asking if she’s in love with Bella. Too upset for words, Chloe rushes out in embarrassment.

Nikau’s hostility infuriates Bella, who thinks he should have cut Chloe some slack. Finding a steaming Nikau at home, Chloe tries to put her diary into context – she was hurting and relying on Bella for emotional support. Nikau seemed to be the person obstructing her lifeline with Bella. A broken Nikau is ruthless – if there’s one thing Ari taught them, it’s that family always has your back. Chloe is stung by Nikau’s words.

Feeling for Chloe’s humiliation, Theo softens and follows her out. The two reconnect and agree to avoid the party in each other’s company instead. A friendly hug leads Chloe to try kissing Theo, but he pulls away. Ashamed, Chloe runs off.

A compassionate Theo catches up with Chloe and assures her that it wasn’t rejection that made him pull away – he really likes her. But if they are going to do this, they should do it properly. Theo gives her a kiss on the cheek and skips off.

Meanwhile, determined to end on a good note, Ryder thanks Alf for everything he has done for him. A gruff Alf insists he was only doing what was required of a grandfather.

Determined to get through to him, Ryder produces the family heirloom compass that Alf gifted to him from his pocket. A heartfelt Ryder declares that no matter where he goes, he’ll be able to find his way back home to Alf, but he’ll miss him terribly. Touched, an emotional Alf relents, pulling Ryder into an intimate embrace.

As Roo drives Ryder to the port, she pulls over when Bella comes running down the street, waving. Bella wants to say a proper goodbye to the best friend she’s ever had.

Later, when Alf goes to process his thoughts over a fishing line, Martha recruits Roo and Marilyn to help her with a surprise for Alf. Transforming the living room into a candlelit ballroom, Martha emerges in a gown and asks Alf to dance with her.
