Home and Away preview (what happens this week)

Last week's Home and Away episodes

Monday 15th August

Distressed in the wake of Josh being taken into custody, Evelyn comes clean to Hunter about how his mother died. Hunter is stunned into silence when she explains that Josh killed Charlotte, not Andy.

Kat attends Josh’s police interview, anxious that he will reveal her role in concealing his crime under questioning. Confronted by the reality of what lies before him – a life sentence in prison – Josh tries to remain stone faced as he relays what happened with Charlotte to Sgt. McCarthy. McCarthy questions why either he or Andy confessed – there weren’t any leads so they could’ve gotten away with it. Josh, not able to give away Kat’s involvement, says it was Andy’s guilt over the explosion that drove him to come forward.

Andy is tempted to pocket the garage’s takings but covers when Ash fronts up. Ash presses home just how much is riding on him keeping clean. Andy swears he won’t put a foot wrong. But his need for cash remains, so Andy contacts an old connection – Simmo – and asks if he’s still in the game.

Nate is shaken to learn of Josh’s confession. And his day doesn’t improve when Tori reminds him that he has agreed to supervise a new intake of medical students. She asks Nate to keep an eye on little brother Mason to which he agrees. But Nate and Mason get off to a less than rosy start – Nate pegs Mason as a joker who isn’t taking his role seriously.

Tuesday 16th August

Andy meets up with old contact, Simmo. Simmo is suspicious given past interactions but Andy sells him on the idea of using the garage as a chop-shop. At the garage, Andy lets Ash know how much he appreciates everything he has done for him lately. But when Simmo shows up with a luxury car and Ash is intrigued, Andy is quick to deal with it, encouraging Ash to take some time off.

Alf and Roo clash once again over the Bait Shop. He wants it closed now! Roo gets an inkling of why this is so important to her dad.

Meanwhle Brody has closed up Angelo’s for the day, making plans to give the restaurant a makeover. Phoebe is excited to help and they playfully toss around ideas. Justin shows up looking for a free fed. After learning about his work situation Phoebe encourages him to try again at the garage. Justin is reluctant given his previous clashes with Ash but Brody says he’s got to suck it up – he needs the work. Justin relents and as he leaves, throws out a potential name for the restaurant – Salt. Phoebe and Brody are surprised but they don’t hate it. Later, the pair continue to tease one another into the afternoon when Kat witnesses it, and is left to wonder if there’s an attraction there.

Tori confronts Nate over the way he spoke to Mason, accusing him of being too harsh. Nate counters that Mason missed his ward round, kept making jokes and didn’t report Alf’s fall. Tori thinks none of that warrants Nate yelling at Mason, and suggests Nate is letting his personal life influence how he treats the interns..

Mason is stunned when Lara shows up at the hospital. Nate observes her kiss Mason, as Mason quickly makes it clear she needs to leave – Lara was expecting a warmer welcome. He overhears Tori approaching and panics, practically manhandling Lara back into the elevators. She pouts, as he promises to meet up later.

Lara accuses Mason of dating Evelyn. He tries to make her accept the truth but all Lara can see is someone who isn’t committed enough to their relationship. It breaks her heart but she has to end it. Desperate to keep hold of her, Mason is forced to blurt out the truth – his family are in witness protection.

Wednesday 17th August

After blurting out his family is in witness protection, Mason has to backpedal in front of Lara. She wants to know what’s going on but Mason is rattled, saying it’s too dangerous. Lara presses that he’s opened the door now – she loves him and promises not to tell anyone.

Nate is concerned that Irene may be suffering post-traumatic stress as a result of her abduction, but when he gently suggests that she may benefit from counselling, Irene is quick to shut this down.

Tensions are rising between Marilyn and John over the issue of fostering, Alf insists on being allowed home from the hospital. Roo, though, is concerned about how they will be able manage to look after the physically impaired and cantankerous Alf, especially when she’s not around.

Elsewhere that morning, Brody suspects that he may be being followed. He goes home and tells his siblings, and as the family hash out what to do, Mason is forced to reveal that not only did he lie to Tori’s face, he also told Lara their secret.

Thursday 18th August

Chris and Olivia are concerned to discover Irene on the floor of the Diner, clearly still struggling in the wake of her abduction. Opening up to them, Irene admits her frustration – she’s worked so hard to be strong and now all she feels is powerless. Sympathetic Chris suggests trying counselling again but Irene’s not interested – she doesn’t want to talk about it, she just wants to fix it. This gives Chris an idea…

With a plan in mind, Chris approaches Billie and asks her to teach Irene some self-defence moves. He’s hopeful the workout might help her regain some of her strength. But Billie, reminded of her own attack, shuts the idea down, much to Chris’s disappointment.

Matt worries Roo’s becoming Alf’s punching bag, and takes matters into his own hands, making his concerns known to Alf. He’s hopeful his appeal will help Alf see clearly but it seemingly has the opposite affect, Alf stubbornly refusing to admit he’s wrong and instead kicking Matt out of his house.

After her intense but fruitful session, Irene seems lighter – almost like a weight has been lifted. She wants to thank Billie for her help but when Billie emerges from the change rooms pale, Irene’s face clouds with concern. She checks what’s wrong and Billie can barely say the words – she’s bleeding.

Friday 19th August

After some harsh words from Matt of all people, Alf realises what a pain in the neck he has been. Instead of blasting Roo, he apologises for the way he’s been treating her, just as Justin rocks up. Roo’s pleased to hear Alf called Justin, he’s there to collect the keys to re-open the Bait Shop.

Worried there is something wrong with her baby, Billie, with Irene for support, is at the hospital. It’s a long, tense wait.

Marilyn supports John in his decision not to foster but he knows that she is compromising for him and he is desperate to make it up to her. His plan… turn the spare room into her own personal yoga studio. He goes overboard and while helping moving furniture around, Chris asks what John’s done wrong, assuming he needs to make up for something.

Olivia is worried about Hunter, she tries to talk to him. He’s skipping school, ignoring her texts and is acting as though there’s nothing wrong. She goes to get them some food and bumps into VJ at the diner. She finds out that Josh’s hearing is the following day and wonders why Hunter hasn’t mentioned it. Back outside with Hunter, she pleads with him to be honest with her - he can’t be as fine as he claims, not after everything that’s happened. Tired of her relentless questions, Hunter snaps, telling her to stop.
