I think there may have been some pictures around that he posted last year that suggested he was back in NZ, which started the rumours. There has also been a number of stories suggesting that he & the writing staff were at loggerheads because he wasn't happy with the way the character was being written after Mia & Chloe arrived on the scene etc etc. If he has gone, I am not sure whether they got to film his departure. As I mentioned in the last post, we haven't seen him since he was taken to remand & didn't get to see his visit with the family last night. So I wonder if we will see him when sentencing takes place...probably not....

    Yeah, I had thought this... I am assuming, to increase the mystery over when Chloe will admit what happened... but it's been poorly done, if those previous scenes were Ari's last..

    Home and Away: Ari collapses in the middle of his wedding to Mia and Karen continues to stir up drama in Dean's life
    Emotions are running high this week as the Parata family grapple with Ari?s cancer diagnosis.

    Grab the tissues Home And Away fans ? it could be time to farewell another Summer Bay resident.

    Emotions are running high this week as the Parata family grapple with Ari's cancer diagnosis. Now, Ari has decided against the radical surgery that could save his life.

    After experiencing sharp stabbing pains in prison, Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) was rushed to hospital with suspected appendicitis.

    But what Dr Logan (Harley Bonner) found was of far greater concern: multiple tumours in the abdomen. Ari was facing life in prison, now he faces death.

    For Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo), the thought of losing his uncle to jail has been almost unbearable. How will he handle losing him forever?

    "That's a confronting reality for Nikau and he would do everything in his power to stop that from happening," Kawakawa tells TV WEEK.

    While Tane (Ethan Browne) assures Nikau that not all is lost, Mia (Anna Samson) seeks out hope from Dr Logan.

    Treatment plans are few and far between for such an aggressive cancer ? except for a radical surgery to remove the tumours. But to her surprise, Ari refuses.

    Mia, Tane and Nikau are stunned. Why wouldn't he fight? Ari, however, explains that a life in prison or in a hospital is now a life he wants.

    He's ready to leave on his terms. Plus, he's about to marry the love of his life. It's a day of celebration, not commiseration.

    Meanwhile at the Parata household, Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) and Bella (Courtney Miller) wait to hear news of the surprise wedding. Felicity reveals that she doesn't feel worthy of being part of the family.

    Tane has invited her into sacred ground. Bella listens before explaining just how deeply Tane cares for Felicity ? he may need her now more than ever.

    Back at the hospital, Mia and Ari are ready to wed. The entire family is moved by their vows, making them temporarily forget the dire situation they're in.

    But just as quickly, their reality comes crashing down when Ari collapses!

    Hang in there, Ari!

    Home and Away star addresses show exit in tragic storyline
    "I'm gonna miss you."

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...i-parata-exit/

    Home and Away spoilers follow for Australia-pace episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

    Ari Parata actor Rob Kipa-Williams has bid goodbye to the soap following his character's tragic exit storyline.

    Airing on Australian screens today (March 7), Ari's final moments came after he was diagnosed with an incredibly rare form of cancer named pseudomyxoma peritonei. Instead of regular and brutal operations, he'd decided to die on his own terms surrounded by family.

    Reacting to this devastating turn of events, Kipa-Williams shared some words on Instagram after his character's final scenes aired.

    "Thank you to the fans, for all the love and crazy amounts of messages and support. Thank you to all the cast, crew, camera, directors, production, writing, makeup, art department and everyone else in between, that make the wheels spin," he shared.

    "This Iconic Ozzie TV show took risks. I'm honoured to have co-created Māori cultural storylines, and will forever be proud of those scenes that made it to screen.. it was true teamwork.. My hope is this opens the door for more diversity.

    "Thank you for everything Ariki Wiremu Parata, you taught me a lot. I'm gonna miss you."

    https://www.instagram.com/p/CazJeyJp...9-762378764f6d

    The star, who has also been seen on-screen battling a deep-sea monster in Jason Statham's The Meg, received loads of love from fans over in the comment section.

    "I'm so sad!!! You were amazing on the show! I couldn't stop crying. I wish you all the best!!" one fan wrote, while another added: "The Paratas were the best thing that happened to H&A! You'll be missed Ari."

    What a mark he made.

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.

    Home and Away fans praise touching haka scene after character death
    "Love that you have brought the Maori culture into the show."

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...scene-praised/

    Home and Away spoilers follow for Australia-pace episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

    In honour of their fallen loved one Ari Parata, the likes of his brother Tane, nephew Nikau and other family members performed a traditional Kiwi haka in Home and Away yesterday (March 10).

    This isn't the first time one's been aired in the soap, following 2020's groundbreaking tribute to Mikaere Parata, but the emotions it's conjured within the Home and Away fanbase over in Australia shows just how vital such representation is on screen.

    Many viewers took to Twitter to praise the scenes, which will air in April on Channel 5 in the UK.

    "Omg @homeandaway so sad. I love that you have brought the Maori culture into the show, it's so respectful and beautiful, got chills when they did the Haka. #HomeAndAway #Maori," wrote one person, while another posted that "everything" about Ari's send-off was "beautiful".

    "That Haka was AMAZING. Absolute chills" and "Very powerful episodes of Home and Away tonight. Beautiful to see the Māori culture honoured," read another pair of tweets.

    Tane and Nikau actors Ethan Browne and Kawakawa Fox-Reo both discussed their characters' powerful Taiaha scenes earlier this year.

    "It's something really important to me and it just feels like I'm helping spread awareness about our culture which feels really nice," said the former.

    Fox-Reo shared his pride in the Māori heritage, adding that he wants to explore more of his background.

    "That's who I am and that's something I'm really proud of but I'm definitely guilty of not maintaining a certain standard that I know I'm capable of, in terms of the language and the tikanga [customary behaviours]," he said.

    "I grew up spending a lot of time at the marae [a sacred place], and I'm always open to learning more."

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.

    Home and Away: An armed robbery at Salt leaves Tane fighting for his life in a pool of blood
    Can Felicity save him?

    https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebri...tane-die-73258

    While death and heartbreak are inevitable on Home and Away, it doesn't stop viewers from fearing the worst when it comes to the fate of their favourite characters.

    And it seems the latest Summer Bay local to stare death in the face is Tane Parata (Ethan Browne).

    In a teaser for Home and Away's explosive upcoming week, Tane is seen fighting for his life in a pool of blood after an armed robbery at Salt.

    Tane's devastated girlfriend Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) applies pressure to an apparent gunshot wound on his stomach while frantically calling for help.

    The dramatic preview has sent Home and Away fans into a spin, with many concerned Tane will take his last breath.

    "Tane is starting to use up his 9 lives? only like 4 left 😮😂" one fan wrote.

    The drama unfolds when Mackenzie's (Emily Weir) dealings with PK take a dangerous turn when she finds herself out of money in the illicit poker underworld.

    Having declined PK's (Ryan Johnson) indecent proposal to clear her debt in exchange for spending the night with him, Mackenzie is reeling when she realises how close she is to losing everything.

    But when Dean (Patrick O'Connor) tells her PK was only lying to get her into bed, an incensed Mackenzie wants only one thing: revenge.

    It's not only Mackenzie that PK and his cronies have their eye on though. In the wake of the robbery, Dean is shocked to receive a threat against his son, Jai.

    A fearful Dean decides to take matters into his own hands and calls in reinforcements: the River Boys. Just how far will he go to protect his family?

    Tune in to Home and Away, Monday to Thursday, 7.00pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.



    And:

    There's a dramatic week ahead.
