Theo (Matt Evans) and Kirby (Angelina Thomson) are thrilled to be having a hidden relationship this week on Home and Away, but challenges keep appearing. They are caught together at the house first, and Justin (James Stewart) is sworn to secrecy.
Then, while performing with Salt, Justin reprimands them for being far too blatant on stage. As if that weren’t enough, Kirby challenges Theo to kiss his admirer as Remi (Adam Rowland) urges Theo to flirt with another woman.
After their road trip, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and Dean (Patrick O’Connor) arrive back in the Bay, but Ziggy finds it difficult to adjust because she is constantly daydreaming about competing in surfing competitions. She starts to become resentful of the duties she has at the Bay and realises that she would be happier if she were pursuing her ambition to become a professional surfer. Dean realises that he might have to give her the push she needs and let her go after observing her struggles.
Here is the schedule for the week starting on Monday, October 3.
Theo and Kirby are observed by Justin together.
Theo invites his hidden lover Kirby over as soon as he realises he has the place to himself. She quickly leaves the house after receiving his SMS, giving Remi and Eden confused justifications. Theo is eager to get started when Kirby shows there, but she wants to set some ground rules first, including the prohibition against public displays of affection, especially when they are performing together. Theo concurs, and the two enter the bedroom. Later, when they are relaxing in the kitchen, Justin unexpectedly comes home early and surprises Theo by bursting in while he is still wearing his boxers! The new pair is horrified and begs Justin to keep their illicit relationship a secret, but how long can they manage to do so?

As Marilyn discovers an omen, is Heather dangerous?

When Irene discovers that Heather has nowhere to stay till the next day, she dismisses Marilyn’s worries and offers her a bed for the night.

She shares her research with Roo, but her best buddy starts to grow impatient.
Bree is accused of medical malpractice by Rose.
Rose is incensed and thinks Bree committed medical malpractice when she learns that Cash has been released from the hospital. She confronts Bree about her choice and doesn’t hold back, speaking her mind, out of worry for the man she is secretly in love with. Bree, however, is confident in her professional medical judgement and tells Rose that she won’t accept instructions on how to carry out her duties. Rose feels abruptly cut off when she says that Cash can finish his rehabilitation at home with his sister. Doesn’t she realise that she and Xander are now a part of Cash’s family?

When Amber informs Dean that Jai will take part in a footy gala, Dean and Ziggy are compelled to end their enjoyable road trip to go surfing. Although Ziggy is happy they had a break, he finds it difficult to adjust to the reality of spending another day in the garage, especially as Justin and Dean are swooning over Lyrik and Jai, respectively. She starts to doubt whether this is the kind of life she wants when she could just as easily be on the shore pursuing her pro surfer ambitions. Dean becomes aware that he may need to persuade his girlfriend to leave the Bay and go for the kind of life that will make her content as he watches her struggle.
Kirby witnesses Theo kissing another lady.
While hanging out in Salt, Remi, Kirby, and Theo are asked how long the band has been together by Mackenzie when Remi goes to the bar. Mack isn’t persuaded despite Remi’s claims to the contrary. Remi tries the waters by urging Theo to go and flirt with an adoring woman at the bar as they decide to place a wager on whether the couple is dating.
Kirby challenges him because he knows it might provide them cover. Although that makes Theo uneasy, he continues. He receives a text from Kirby asking him to kiss the woman as he is speaking to her. Will Theo kiss another person in order to conceal his relationship with Kirby?
