Next week on Home and Away in the UK, Justin’s interference could cost Theo his apprenticeship, and Marilyn is disappointed with Tex’s work ethic as she continues to govern with an iron grip.
Marilyn’s frustration with Tex, the new handyman, is growing (Lucas Linehan).
In place of Alf (Ray Meagher) and Roo (Georgie Parker), Tex has been hired to assist in the bait shop and campground. So far, Tex has impressed Marilyn with his work, although his punctuality might use some improvement.
Tex is supposed to be working at the caravan park, but he ends up rescuing a surfer who fell off his board and hit a rock. Marilyn tries to find him all afternoon at the diner, much to the annoyance of Irene (Lynne McGranger).
As Tex runs into Rose (Kirsty Marillier) once more, he is able to persuade her to join him for a drink. Marilyn is unimpressed because those don’t look like work clothes when Tex stops by the diner on his way to meet Rose at Salt.
Tex assures the campground that he would return later to do any tasks that remain, but Marilyn subsequently complains to Irene that she is being duped and that she clearly underestimated Tex.
Later that evening, when Tex calls to offer to accompany Marilyn home, she quickly declines his offer, stating that she must continue working and that she never abandons a task.
Irene informs Tex that they are not impressed with his work ethic when Marilyn leaves the room because he showed up nowhere that afternoon.
At this moment, John overhears the talk and admits that he might be to blame—Tex had assisted in a rescue earlier on the beach; he’s a hero!
Irene questions Tex’s silence, but he modestly responds that it’s not his style.
Irene cautions him that if he wants to avoid Marilyn, he’ll need to change his mind—if it isn’t already too late!
Is Tex’s work already done before it even began?
