At Home and Away has apparently killed another character in the Australian season finale.
Show managers had teased that the last episode of the year in Australia would include “a murder that no one saw coming”.
Chloe Anderson’s villainous father Matthew Montgomery (James Sweeny) was the character who did not survive the night when a dramatic showdown outside the Parata House went horribly wrong.
In this week’s episodes, Chloe’s mother Mia (Anna Samson) bravely confided in her daughter about her traumatic past with Matthew.

Matthew raped Mia when they were younger, and that’s how Chloe was conceived.
After hearing the truth, Chloe (Sam Barrett) supported her mother and made it clear to Matthew that she did not want anything more to do with him. Chloe had spent the previous few weeks tying ties to Matthew after he surprisingly came to the bay.
Matthew refused to accept Chloe’s decision and harassed her outside the Parata house, visibly aroused when he demanded a chance to explain himself.
Mia interrupted the row and tried to get Chloe to go in, but Matthew blocked their way to prevent this.

When Matthew then grabbed Mia and shouted at her face, branding her a “liar and manipulator,” Chloe panicked and grabbed a nearby brick.
Chloe hit Matthew over the head with the brick and caused him to crash to the ground. When Mia hurried to check on him, she was alarmed to realize that he had no pulse.
Mia immediately took control of the situation by moving Matthews body into the trunk of the family car. She urged Chloe to go in and pretend that the incident had never happened.
Mia drove out of Summer Bay at high speed with Matthew in the trunk, but her erratic behavior quickly caught the attention of Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright), who was chasing in his police car.

Although Mia briefly stopped and considered facing Cash, she realized she looked too suspicious as she had Matthew’s blood visible on her clothes.
The season ended with Mia driving off again and Cash followed at high speed.
Meanwhile, Mia’s partner Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) returned home and was worried about finding a clearly traumatized Chloe on the couch.

The shocked course came shortly after Ari had proposed to Mia and she had accepted. But will Matthew’s death mean they will not have their happy ending?
At Home and Away returns for its new season in 2022.
