Leah (Ada Nicodemou) has just returned from the city, where she was attempting to contact her brother and Theo’s father, Dimitri (Salvatore Coco). Despite her best efforts to persuade him to reunite with his son, it became evident that she would not be able to persuade him, so she gave up.
Justin (James Stewart) and Theo (Matt Evans) are back in the Bay. However, things quickly alter when Justin receives an unexpected call from Leah a few days later.
Leah, visibly shaken, tells that Dimitri has unexpectedly arrived in the Bay. Justin dashes off to see Leah, but not before texting Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and requesting that she take command of the garage for the day. To Theo’s surprise, Ziggy reluctantly gives up her day off with Dean (Patrick O’Connor) and heads in. Why is she working? Ziggy claims that something came up for Justin, but she has no further information.
When Theo learns that Leah has also cancelled her shift at the Diner, his suspicions mount. He just finds out that’something came up’ for her as well. Ziggy has a simple explanation: the couple is taking the day off to get some work done at home without being interrupted! Theo, on the other hand, isn’t convinced, and it turns out that his suspicions were justified.
Later, Leah and Justin arrive in the garage, pleased to announce that Dimitri has joined them. His reaction, however, is not what they expect, as his eyes widen and he appears to want to flee. Dimitri waits until they’re alone in the house before announcing his intentions: Theo must return home with him. Theo, however, flatly refuses.
Dimitri continues by explaining that Theo’s mother has abandoned him. Theo, on the other hand, is relieved to hear the news, which makes Dimitri even angrier. The scene quickly turns into a brawl, which Leah and Justin intervene in. Dimitri’s rage escalates as he accuses Leah of turning his wife and son against him…
