Ever since detective Angelo Rosetta (Luke Jacobz) returned to Summer Bay, the resident copy of Home and Away, Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) has lived on borrowed time.
After Ross kidnapped Colby’s sister Bella (Courtney Miller), wife Chelsea (Ashleigh Brewer), and friend Willow (Sarah Roberts) in dramatic scenes in the long-running soap, Colby shot dead Ross Nixon last year.
While Colby has managed to avoid the ramifications of his acts thus far, murder can only stay secret for so long, and in a new Home and Away teaser it seems like the time of the beloved Summer Bay has come to face the music.
The clips tease Colby, confessing something to Angelo, whose investigation of the case has been persistent since arriving back in town, with a mysterious “Witness X.”
“I picked it aside. I’m ready to talk,’ a mysterious voice can be heard saying, as Colby, who, after being arrested by Angelo, is seen languishing behind bars, seems like there’s no way out of this dilemma.
And who exactly is the traitorous Witness X?
Among the suspects are Bella Nixon, Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor), Willow Harris, Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman), Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo), and Taylor (Annabel Stephenson), all possibly, according to the teaser, given their perception of Colby ‘s crime.
Dean might also be in the firing line as he helped Colby bury the body.
Some Home and Away fans are also convinced that after a recent photo of the actress appeared on co-star Sam Frost ‘s Instagram, Colby’s ex-wife Chelsea would return to point a finger at her former husband.
Colby ‘s assassination of Ross abruptly reemerged earlier this year when Angelo, who left Summer Bay in 2011, returned to town.
In the sea, Ross‘ rotting corpse was discovered and Angelo was called to investigate.
“Angelo admitted on his return,” I never imagined it would be my homecoming to investigate a murder.
Ironically, Angelo was also, like Colby, a Summer Bay policeman responsible for a murder for which he was never tried.
After killing fan-favorite Jack (Paul O’Brien), The Summer Bay was written out the unsavoury way, leaving town and they don’t let it be forgotten by Luke Jacobz, the actor behind the role.”Individuals love to hate Angelo. He wasn’t the most popular character, and that’s okay because of the history of the show and all the people he’s been angry about,’ he said in September.
Most of the responses I thought were encouraging, but then I got some people going too: ‘Why are you back in the Bay, you’re not supposed to be there!’ You’ve got Jack killed!
