Logan Bennett’s final scenes from Home and Away aired on Australian television screens this week.
Logan’s actor, Harley Bonner, left the soap at the end of 2021, but he has remained on screen because Home and Away films its scenes six months before airing.
Logan left Summer Bay following a rough time in this week’s episodes in Australia, which will air in the UK on Channel 5 next month.
Logan had recently split from his fiancée Mackenzie Booth after learning that she had secretly organised illegal poker sessions at Salt, culminating to a terrible situation with sleazy PK.
After the finger of blame was unjustly pointed at him over a deadly car crash, the local doctor came dangerously close to facing heavy punishment for causing death through unsafe driving.
Logan resigned from his work at the Northern Districts Hospital and re-enlisted in the army’s medical team instead, clearly overwhelmed.
Mackenzie afterwards realised that Logan had departed without saying goodbye to her, which she had hoped for.
“I’m sorry I didn’t let you know I was leaving,” Logan said in a voicemail that could be heard on television. To be honest, I didn’t realise who I was until I was on my way.
“Anyway, I promise I’m fine.” I’m sorry, but I’m unable to attend. If they’ll have me, I’m going back into the army. Mac, you’re an incredible woman. “Are you going to be happy?”
In December of last year, the producers of Home and Away revealed that Harley Bonner would not be returning to the show in 2022.
Logan’s character was not recast by the show’s producers.
“Channel Seven can confirm Harley will not return to Home and Away when filming resumes in the coming weeks,” a spokesman said at the time. “We send Harley go with our best wishes and heartfelt gratitude for his contributions to the show.”
In July, Home and Away fans in the United Kingdom will be able to witness these moments on Channel 5.
Sam Frost, who played Jasmine Delaney, is also anticipated to quit the show soon in Australia, as she left at the same time as Harley.
