The following week on Home and Away in the UK, Cash and Irene are horrified to learn about Jasmine, and Xander reverts to his old ways.
After six long weeks, Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) was eager to his girlfriend Jasmine (Sam Frost), who had been away at the Shaw family property in the far regions of New South Wales. Back in July, after Wendy suffered a heart attack, Jasmine made a mercy dash to aid her ex-in-laws Ian (Frankie J. Holden) and Wendy (Amanda Muggleton).
Jasmine had also moved away from her recently discovered siblings Rose (Kirsty Marillier) and Xander (Luke Van Os), who had moved to Summer Bay just over three months ago to get to know her.
Cash agreed to watch out for them, and Jasmine felt bad for abandoning them so soon after they had sacrificed everything to be close to her. Jasmine would, after all, return before they knew it, wouldn’t she?
Everyone was happy that Jasmine was finally coming home, but Xander was especially happy to hear that Cash intended to pop the question to her.
Cash put on his suit and set out a spread of champagne and roses as he impatiently awaited Jasmine’s arrival since he had the Beach House to himself the entire afternoon.
But as the hours passed, Cash’s worry grew. Despite the distance from the farm in Mt. Edgecombe, Jasmine shouldn’t have to travel so far.
Cash sends Jasmine a voicemail, wondering whether getting her to come home early has caused any problems when the action picks up the next week. Cash calls Jasmine, but she doesn’t answer, so when night falls, he goes to the cafe to see whether Irene (Lynne McGranger) has heard anything.
Cash becomes increasingly paranoid as he queries Irene and Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) about if they have spoken to Jasmine about the famed Rose incident that he has been worrying about for weeks. Irene tries to call Ian, but he is likewise unreachable. Both have resisted, so Cash is still perplexed as to what took transpired.
It’s time for Cash to file a missing person’s report after hearing nothing from the farm the following morning, according to Eden (Stephanie Panozzo).
When John (Shane Withington) sees Cash outside the surf club alone without Jasmine, he becomes worried about him. He calls Irene right away, and she gives him an update.
When the police eventually return Cash’s call, he requests that they conduct a welfare check at the nearby police station. Cash is stunned by what he hears. He screams, “No, no, that can’t be right,” while John watches.
Irene begs Cash to tell her what happened—is Jasmine OK?—and John is obliged to contact her again while Cash feverishly vents his frustrations on a punchbag in the gym.
Cash responds, “She’s well. Before informing her that Jasmine won’t be returning home, I said, “They’re all fine.”
Cash claims that Jasmine informed the police that she was staying at the farm when they contacted. She requested that the cops deliver the message of her love and regrets to Cash instead of trying to talk to him.
An angry Irene attempts to process everything as Cash takes a breath. Later, she queries Cash about Xander and Rose’s knowledge. Cash claims he doesn’t want them to hear it over the phone, despite the fact that it is Jasmine’s duty to inform them.
He’ll have to inform them personally, but how can he do so without making them feel foolish for uprooting their lives?
As he struggles with the mental strain of his paramedic work, Xander is already coping with his own problems. Rose recently learned that her brother’s method of coping with patients’ deaths is to get a tattoo in their honour. As a result, Rose realised that her brother required assistance.
When Xander finally decided to ask for help at work, it was over a conversation with Cash. Now that he has already had his first counselling session, Xander follows their suggestion by going to the gym with Cash.
Cash can’t bring himself to say the truth, so he just says that he hasn’t done anything yet when Xander is eager to know more about the proposal. Cash understands that the news of Jasmine is going to be devastating as Xander reveals that his counsellor has advised him to talk more about the stress he is experiencing.
Cash arrives by the apartment that evening hoping to find Rose there as well, but when he sees Xander by himself, he realises he can’t put it off any longer.
When Xander learns that Jasmine hasn’t even provided an explanation for her choice, he is even more shocked by the news.
He asks, “Are you sure you’re going to let her do this without telling me why?” “You merit an explanation,” I say.
Irene is certain that she travel with Cash to the property because she believes that Xander is correct.
Xander is in a particularly terrible mood that night as he tosses and turns in bed with sirens blaring continuously in his thoughts.
When Xander contacts his counsellor in a panic, the counsellor suggests that he try breathing exercises, but Xander notes that nothing they have given him thus far has worked.
Xander is at a loss and chooses to turn to his own method of therapy as he sobs on the edge of the bed.
Fortunately, it appears that Summer Bay has an after-hours tattoo artist accessible for home visits. As he helps the artist set up the necessary equipment, Xander swiftly browses the catalogue and selects a sizable pattern to be inked on his pec.
A smile appears on Xander’s face as the tattoo artist goes to work.
What about Xander’s tattoos?
Yes! Even Xander’s most recent tattoo is one that belonged to actor Luke Van Os. But why hadn’t we noticed it earlier?
Laura Vazquez, the show’s head of makeup, recently revealed on Instagram that the enormous tattoo on Luke’s chest had been covered up in earlier sequences so that it could be added to the programme later. She even offered a time-lapse video of the entire procedure.
