Nikau features prominently in the press report due to his lifeguard position, while his uncle Tane is also scrutinized due to his role running the local gym.
Although the Paratas were only involved because Tane was secretly helping the police, Rose Delaney warns that they can’t risk killing their cover until the trial is over.
This means that Nikau and Tane must both remain silent while facing public condemnation for their associations with criminals, even though deep down they know they have done nothing wrong.
John Palmer is quick to warn Nikau that the surf club committee is reconsidering his lifeguard position.
