In this week’s episode of Home And Away, Mac reveals to Ziggy that she is carrying Ari’s child!
But instead of making the occasion joyful, Ari dumps Mac before she can break the shocking news to him.
A distraught Mac (Emily Weir) is now concerned of not only how she will inform Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), but also if she really wants to keep the child.
Like dust at the Tamworth rodeo, Ari’s ex-girlfriend Mia (Anna Samson) has stirred up old emotions with her visit in Summer Bay.
Many issues between them remained unaddressed, but Ari never stopped loving Mia, according to Rob, who speaks to TV WEEK.
This week, Ari finally lets Mac know that they are splitting up.
As Rob explains, “Ari has made a decision to live by a new set of standards and tries to be as honest as possible.”
He must end his relationship with Mac since he loves both Mia and Mac, and he must also consider what Mia’s being here means to him.
Ziggy (Sophie Dillman), who is listening to a devastated Mac, advises her to inform Ari about the baby, but Mac isn’t quite ready to cross that bridge.
However, when the two run into each other at the gym, it’s nothing short of awkward. Ari is eager to move on with Mia.
According to Rob, “Ari doesn’t actually tell Mia he’s split up with Mac, so Mia stays guarded and acts like they’re still dating.”
Will Mia give in to Ari’s macho attractions when he does ultimately tell her?
