John is not impressed.
Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Home and Away‘s Nikau Parata fears being fired from his new job on UK screens next week.
Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) worries about the wrath of John Palmer after a public fight with Theo Poulos.
In upcoming scenes on Channel 5, Nikau is tricked by Theo (Matt Evans) on his first day as a surf lifesaver.
While Nikau washes the Polaris for John (Shane Withington), Theo heads over and pretends that somebody is struggling out in the water.
Nikau races towards the water to save whoever’s drowning, but he realises that it was all a prank when Theo steals the Polaris to use in one of his online videos.
Bitterly regretting that he allowed himself to be tricked like this, Nikau worries that his first day could be his last.
Meanwhile, Theo abandons the vehicle when it runs out of petrol.
The mischievous newcomer arrives home to be confronted by John and Justin Morgan (James Stewart), who are both appalled by his behaviour.
John dishes out a punishment to Theo by forcing him to work at the juice bar for free.
When Nikau sees Theo, he confronts him for causing so much trouble and the argument descends into a fight.
John has to step in to separate the two boys – and is particularly incensed with Nikau for fighting while wearing his lifesaver’s uniform.
A remorseful Nikau takes the uniform back to John, believing that he has lost his job. He’s thrilled when John agrees to give him another chance, but is he still on shaky ground?
Home and Away airs these scenes on Thursday, February 17 and Friday, February 18 at 1.15pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR.
Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
