Last night’s Home And Away season finale was not exactly what viewers were expecting.
The rather cliff-hanger ending had viewers ripped apart compared to previous years, with many left frustrated that there was not enough action and drama. After all we are STILL reeling from the hospital siege in 2019 that saw the famous character Mason shot and killed.
Regardless of whether you enjoyed or loathed the last episode of the year, we’re already moving on and looking to 2021 with the first juicy new preview for the season.
And this time, that’s definitely not disappointing.
This trailer, literally, eats us up and bounces into our seats:
There’s a lot of passion, new and old faces (hello, Dan Ewing, River Boy), and a lot of drama, so let’s digest all of this below.
River Boy’s return
It’s not every day that a favourite fan, let alone River Boy, comes back to Summer Bay. After a lot of speculation, we now have our first sight of Dan Ewing, who played Heath Braxton in the show from 2011 to 2014, back in the Bay.
We’re giddy with excitement at the prospect of the return of this Home And Away hunk, even the briefest of glimpses.
Even though there is a popular fan theory that he is in town to bust ex-River Boy turned cop, Colby, out of prison, it remains to be determined exactly what brings Heath back. Rob Kipa-Williams (Ari Parata), Ethan Browne (Tane Parata), and Patrick O’Connor were also found filming scenes with Dan Parata (Dean Thompson).
Drovers Run reaches Summer Bay with
Fans were eagerly anticipating the appearance of the McLeod’s Daughter sign, Bridie Carter’s arrival, since the news first broke that she was going to join the show.
We’ve had our first proper look at her character now and someone’s better at warning Marilyn that she’s got John in her sights!
“Her character says, “You look like you’re working out before cutting to a clip of her saying, “Let’s have fun together.
A new partnership seems quite possible, seeing as John and Marilyn recently split and, thanks to the help of a few apps, have been exploring dating.
Put it on with a ring, put it off,
Fans were over the moon when Dr Christian Green came to the town with a new passion for Tori.
The pair have been going strong and it looks like their relationship is about to get a lot stronger. Yeah, the proposal we’re talking about is there.
Christian says, “You, me, Grace as a family,” to Tori, who clearly asks, “What are you saying?” ”
He gives her a look that is very telling, which tells us that this is all but confirmed.
Penny teased the possibility of a proposal in a recent interview with TV WEEK, saying:’ When people meet later in life, as Tori and Christian do, they know what they want and things will move quickly.
“Hold on to your hats, people! “
Joy & heartbreak
One thing is certain when viewing the 2021 Home And Away teaser: there is a LOT of kissing. It seems like things are still simmering after a hot hook-up in the season finale between Tane and Ziggy. It’s better for somebody to throw a bucket of water at us because some time soon it doesn’t seem to cool off either.
In the meantime, Lewis, who was played by Luke Arnold, is still alive, the spark between Jasmine and her former flame. Will she find love again after so much heartbreak? Hope we can.
Sam Barrett, another newcomer who was spotted on set earlier this year, will get a first look at us as well. And it looks like she may be causing problems with Bella and Nikau.
Destiny of Colby in question
We see Bella in tears in the trailer, and while it’s cut with footage of Nikau cozying up to the newcomer, we have to wonder if it might be Colby’s tears for her.
The fate of the former cops hung in the balance in the final moments of the finale when they were surrounded by intimidating prisoners. Moreover, he is visibly absent from the 2021 promo.
We’ll have to wait with bated breath to see if Colby’s alive or at least, safe.
