This week in the United Kingdom, the dark Lewis Hayes subplot on Home and Away came to a tragic conclusion.
Lewis’ assassination attempt on Christian Green was stressful, as he imprisoned his arch-enemy in a hospital ward and sought to kill him with a deadly injection.
Lewis’ plan backfired when Tori Morgan arrived just in time to save Christian’s life by delivering CPR on Tuesday’s 5STAR first look episode (May 18).
Meanwhile, Lewis was forced to face the consequences of his actions, with his shocked girlfriend Jasmine Delaney pressing him to contact the authorities.
Here’s a breakdown of what we know about the end of Lewis’ journey – and what’s next.
Is Lewis Hayes permanently gone?
Despite the fact that Home and Away management hasn’t issued an official exit statement, Lewis was always credited on screen as a guest character rather than a member of the main cast.
Lewis’ death was revealed in the 5STAR first peek episode of Home and Away (May 18), which aired on April 20 in Australia. Despite the fact that the show is currently 25 episodes ahead of the UK, the character hasn’t appeared on Australian screens since then.
Unless the writers have a surprise in store for us in the future, this would appear to signal that we’ve seen the last of Lewis for the time being, as his narrative has come to a natural end.
Lewis was not killed off, and he had ties with characters like Christian and Jasmine, therefore the possibility of a comeback has been left open.
Why did Lewis Hayes decide to leave?
Because he was a guest character, Lewis was always brought into Home and Away with a specific storey in mind.
This began in the season finale of 2020, when he ran into his former sweetheart, Jasmine Delaney, and bonded with her.

Since then, the plot has centred around Lewis’ attempts to wreak vengeance on Christian in order to have him fired for incompetence.
As part of his mission, Lewis attempted to assassinate Ari Parata, knowing that Christian would be held guilty. Ari was only saved when Mia Anderson happened to walk in at at the right moment and interrupted him.
In an attempt to blame Christian, Lewis also killed three other patients at the hospital, but the deaths were not captured on tape.
During the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak, in-demand actor Luke Arnold stepped into the role of Lewis during downtime in his profession.
“When I say I’m an Australian actor,” Luke told Stuff in February, “people always ask me, ‘Have you been on Home and Away?’ and I’ve always disappointed them by saying, ‘No.'” I feel like I’m making atonement by finally turning up and doing it.
“I believe it’s one of 2020’s small gifts that I’m suddenly back in Australia, working on Australia’s most iconic show, and having the fun of my life.”
What happens next after Lewis’ arrest, according to Home and Away spoilers?
While Lewis was captured in the end, he left a trail of destruction in his wake. Jasmine finds the issue extremely difficult to deal with in later episodes, and she wonders why her love life is always such a nightmare.
After the sudden loss of her fiancé Robbo in 2020, Jasmine’s first partner was Lewis, and she’s naturally dissatisfied with how things have gone.
Tori Morgan holds Jas accountable for bringing Lewis into their lives, which worries Jas. Tori starts to feel anger toward her, therefore this is a valid issue.
Lewis will not be prosecuted for his crimes since he has already accepted responsibility, as Jasmine, Christian, and Tori learn in next week’s programmes on Channel 5.
Lewis admits to attempting to assassinate Christian, as well as the three killings he committed in the hospital in order to blame his arch-enemy.
We don’t see Lewis in any of these sequences, but we do see how the regulars at Summer Bay react to the news.
Christian’s near-death experience appears to have influenced his behaviour in the long run. Tori is taken aback the following week when Christian says that he feels sorry for Lewis and sees him as a victim, an attitude that Tori finds incomprehensible.
Tori gradually realises that Christian has changed since his near-death experience. The formerly disciplined surgeon begins to seek out the next excitement by skinny-dipping in the sea and speeding dangerously down the road.
Christian also adds that, although being technically dead at the time, he has a vivid memory of Tori performing CPR on him. Tori is adamant that such an out-of-body experience is medically impossible, resulting in an intriguing conflict between the spiritual and the scientific.
