On the television show Home and Away, Xander Delaney (played by Luke Van Os) struggles to cope with the emotional strain of being a busy paramedic (1:45pm – see our TV Guide for listings).
Xander nearly experienced a covert panic attack following a recent fatality involving a teenage cyclist and a drunk motorist.
His sister Rose, a police officer, is now quite concerned about his mental health (Kirsty Marillier).
When Xander learns that Senior Constable Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright), Rose’s partner in law enforcement, is covertly keeping a close eye on him, he is not pleased.
Xander cautions Rose to stay out of his affairs and to quit talking about his personal matters with others.
Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger), a family friend, decides to play peacemaker after observing the animosity between Xander and Rose, and she extends an invitation to the siblings to dine at her beach house.
But when a tense Xander SNAPS and irately reveals that Rose is secretly in love with their sister, Jasmine’s lover, Cash, things do not go quite as planned!
Will Irene say anything?
After Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) and his girlfriend Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis) catch Rose (Lucas Linehan) kissing Tex Wheeler (Ethan Browne) on the beach, more trouble is building for Rose.
Tex, a member of a biker gang, has a hookup with a police officer, thus it makes sense that he is not terrified of them.
Rose arrives at the Parata house with questions after noting that they are giving her some odd stares.
Will Tane and Felicity ever come clean?
Tane refuses to be clear about the murky history involving his late brother, Ari, and the cash taken during the violent robbery.
However, Rose is in shock after Tane informs her that Tex is not who she believes he is.
