Things are not looking good for Ari Parata (played by Rob Kipa-Williams) on Home and Away (1:15pm – see our TV Guide for listings)…

Ari has been rushed to hospital in all kinds of pain.

Ari’s family is thrilled to see him again but they wish it was under happier circumstances.

Hospital doctor, Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner) examines Ari and eventually diagnoses that his appendix is in a bad way and needs to be removed.

Ari will need to recover in hospital after the surgery.

So on the plus side, it means the Parata family can visit him regularly.

Ari’s fiancee, Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) is even hopeful this might mean that Ari’s sentencing is delayed.

However, the situation soon takes a TERRIBLE turn when Logan reveals things are worse than they thought.

Ari has cancer of the appendix, and tumours have spread throughout his abdomen already!

The Parata family are left in SHOCK.

Ari was facing a possible prison sentence, but now he is facing DEATH…

However, when Roo and Alf seat themselves at the restaurant, Ryder begins to realise they have no intention of going anywhere until the situation is resolved.

Is there a chance that Alf and Ryder will finally make peace?
