The season finale of Home and Away, which was shown on Monday night, was the show’s final episode of the year. While the wedding of Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) and Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis) was hinted to have a violent conclusion in the promos, some fans weren’t pleased with the cliffhanger.
The episode’s main plot concern was whether Felicity would attend the wedding before being persuaded to do so by her best friend Eden Fowler (Stephanie Panozzo). The two are blissfully oblivious that someone suspicious has tampered with the brakes in their car, yet the incident was resolved without incident.
It appears that the car accident involving Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) and Justin Morgan (James Stewart) will occur in the season finale. The most recent trailer depicts a horrified Felicity screaming for Tane to save her while she is trapped inside a burning car.
The main cast members are seen relaxing on the beach in the promo when a despondent Tane shows up by himself without a wedding band. Felicity is nowhere to be seen, giving the impression that she perishes in the collision.
Fans were quick to take to social media, with many airing their ‘disappointment’ with the underwhelming triple episode.
“Wouldn’t really call it a ‘Season Finale’. I love the show, but was extremely disappointed with the ending…was just like a normal episode ending for the week,” one irritated fan wrote.
“We didn’t actually see anything at all! The proceedings came to a sudden halt and transitioned to next year’s previews. Before the finale was over, I assumed we would see the accident scenes and Flick in the burning car. That is typically what occurs (and isn’t that what a “cliffhanger” is?). But the last episode last night was a little disappointing for me,” a second person said.
A third wrote, “I agree, usually I’m screaming at the TV for the season finale, last night I was like ‘Oh okay’.”
On the other hand, some viewers gushed about how much they “loved the ending” and how eager they were to see the show again in January 2023.
“I thought it was a great ending. So much to look forward to next year. Why are people so picky?” a fan asked.
“I loved the ending, it keeps us guessing and wondering what will happen when it returns,” another chimed in.
“I personally don’t know what’s wrong with everyone — it was the usual end of year finale — no more, no less — it still keeps everyone guessing till next year which is what it is supposed to do,” a third commented.
