In Home and Away, Justin Morgan (James Stewart) gets Theo Poulos (Matt Evans) into trouble at college.
After receiving a distinction on his TAFE assignment, Theo Poulos is feeling successful, but there may be trouble ahead because Leah Patterson-Baker (Ada Nicodemou) has made Justin Morgan (James Stewart) disclose to the TAFE that he authored the paper for her nephew.
Theo revised the assignment before turning it in, but neither Justin nor Leah are aware of this. So there was no cheating; it was all his own labour.
Theo didn’t have the heart to inform Justin that he passed the project on his own merit because he was so happy to think that his academic efforts had earned a distinction!
With Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett) by his side, Theo is enjoying his achievement as Justin chooses to keep quiet because he can’t bring himself to tell anyone that he prepared the assignment for the TAFE.
When Theo receives a disciplinary call from his TAFE tutor saying that someone else completed his assignment, he quickly learns that Justin has dropped him in it.
Theo is enraged and confronts Justin, admitting that he revised the assignment and received the distinction on his own.
Getting Theo into trouble makes Justin and Leah feel bad.
All of this would not have occurred if Justin hadn’t initially offered to write the homework!
Will Justin be able to convince the TAFE to change their mind and prevent them from looking into the suspected cheating? Or will Justin’s meddling result in Theo’s expulsion?
Jacqui Purvis’ character, Felicity Newman, has a plan to stop Salt from sinking in the meanwhile since she is determined to rescue Emily Weir’s character, Mackenzie Booth, from her financial predicament.
A cautious Mackenzie, however, promptly rejects the proposal. The last time Felicity had a debt solution, it nearly put Mackenzie in jail and got her in legal trouble.
After being placed on a good behaviour bond, Mac is reluctant to take any chances. Who, however, asserted that Flick’s plan is not reasonable?
Felicity feels insulted by Mac’s assumption that her plan is suspect because all she wants to do is save her friend and colleague from a sticky situation!
Later, after hearing from Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) and Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor), Mac realises she needs to accept assistance rather than go it alone and chooses to make amends with a resentful Felicity.
It doesn’t take long for Mac to win Felicity back, and soon they are brainstorming fresh ideas.
Could finding an investor for Salt be the best course of action?
In other news, Chloe’s new administrative position prompts her to find some paperwork that indicate the cost of the gym for Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) and Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams).
Chloe questions Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) about where the money came from after being shocked to learn that they paid for the property outright without taking out a loan, but he immediately cuts her off. Something tells us, though, that Chloe won’t keep quiet about it. Will she learn the reality?
Channel 5 will continue to air Home and Away every day at 1:15 PM.
