When you work under the same roof, how can you keep your personal and business life separate?
In this week’s episode of Home And Away, Justin (James Stewart) may pay the price for giving Theo (Matt Evans) a job at the garage when Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) decides enough is enough.
In the aftermath of his dangerous graveyard stunt with Ryder (Lukas Radovich) and theft of the surf club’s Polaris, Justin continues to father Theo.
However, the misbehaving adolescent continues to cause problems at work. Theo has been more of a burden than a help, being lazy, careless, and full of attitude.
It’s about to get a lot worse.
Justin (Ada Nicodemou) receives a phone call from Leah (Ada Nicodemou), who claims to have been visiting family overseas.
In reality, she’s living in the city with Theo’s parents in the hopes of mending the father-son schism.
However, Theo overhears the talk and becomes enraged. She couldn’t possibly betray him.
The adolescent, who recently told John (Shane Withington) about his father’s abusive past, fears the worst and begs Leah to return home. He does not, however, explain why.
Theo’s aggravation manifests itself the next day when he abandons his work and snaps at an unsuspecting Ziggy.
Instead of reprimanding him for his bad behaviour, Justin intervenes and offers him an apprenticeship. Ziggy is furious.
“It’s difficult for Ziggy,” Matt tells TV WEEK, “since he gets the opportunity so effortlessly.” “He messed with Justin and Ziggy a lot and wasn’t really deserving of it.”
Despite her protests, Justin is adamant about his plan. He states flatly, “It’s my business.”
Ziggy, never one to back down, compiles a stack of résumés from female applicants, despite the fact that Theo isn’t quite as competent. They put everything on the line for their ideals, including their friendship, in a furious debate.
Roo is dealing with the loss of her mother
Their relationship is fragile, but one phone call could transform Roo’s and Martha’s lives forever.
Dr. Logan (Harley Bonner) is asked by Roo (Georgie Parker) to check in with her mother’s medical team in Merimbula this week.
After refusing to accept Roo’s liver transplant, Martha (Belinda Giblin) returned to the family, causing strife.
Logan admits, to to her surprise, that time is not on their side. Martha’s condition has significantly deteriorated. Roo is taken aback. How could Alf (Ray Meagher), her father, have withheld this from her?
When questioned, Alf confesses that he is afraid of losing his wife, and that telling Roo would only confirm his fears. Roo wallows in her loss afterwards, but she can’t seem to let go of her rage.
Can Roo forgive Martha before it’s too late, with time running out?
