The latest goings on in Home and Away, Neighbours and Doctors…


Home and Away: Episode 8221 Cash opens Stevie’s hotel room door to find a mysterious package… containing a teddy bear but it’s hiding a secret – a mic and camera

After watching Death Throes the night before, Cash has something on his mind. He takes another look at the photo taken from Stevie’s stalker. Turns out his intuition was right – on the back of the photo is the same number written by the killer in the movie… the time of death! Is the stalker trying to copy the movie, and is out to take Stevie’s life? Later a gift is left outside Stevie’s hotel door, it seems innocent enough but Cash discovers a camera and microphone hidden inside – however he discovers it too late it has already posted material to the Internet…

Cornered by Justin, Theo decides to let him in on the truth… well, sort of. He offers a white lie – he and Valerie are in fact dating, but the blowout Justin witnessed on the beach happened for no reason other than that Kirby was jealous. A relieved Justin thanks Theo for being honest with him, and bids him goodnight. Theo feels guilty but stays silent. The next day, he tells Valerie that he has to give up the secret of their relationship to cover the harder-to-swallow truth about their drug use. Instead of being understanding, however, Valerie storms off, betrayed.

With Cash completely occupied, Eden finds herself at a loss for what to do. She does her best to be a good friend to Remi as he goes through recovery – and now a breakup too. She casually raises the possibility of Remi meeting with Bree, but he brushes her off instantly. With nothing better to do, she accompanies him to his first physiotherapy session. Remi makes slow but gradual progress with the trainer, but he’s impatient. He’s sick of everyone telling him what to do and dictating how fast he should be healing. In one hasty moment, he goes for the weights and overextends himself, almost injuring himself severely as his chest cramps up with pain.

Eden takes her friend back home and chides him, telling him to stop being so bull-headed and just back go to hospital; running into Bree is the least of his worries at this rate. But Remi begs her not to call Bree no matter what, and tells her to leave him alone. At her wits’ end, Eden calls her brother and asks for help, expressing her worry for Remi. When he doesn’t call her back, a desperate, Eden calls his wife Imogen and asks her for help…

Bree barges into the diner with a target aimed on Justin’s head. She lets loose at him for fixing Remi’s death trap of a motorcycle, then delivering it to his front door. Leah tries to step in and defend him, but Bree storms off before anyone can act. Back at home, she calms down a little thanks to Xander’s emotional support, but it’s clear that she’s not taking the separation from Remi well. To top things off, she’s agreed to help John film a practice wedding ceremony (featuring an awkward and unwilling Dana and Xander). However, watching them recite their vows to each other – promising to be there for each other, and love each other for the rest of their lives – proves to be too much for Bree. She confides in Xander again: she has no idea what to do without Remi.

Tane is reeling after the fallout with the journalist at the hospital. Alf and Roo are doing their best to support him, with Roo sticking by the baby’s side in his place. They bring up the possibility of Tane being an emergency foster carer, but he shakes his head – he’s already thought about it, and he can’t because he’s not a permanent resident. Still, Alf and Roo are determined to find a way. Alf tries talking to Rose about lifting the AVO, but she sadly puts her foot down – the minute Tane laid a finger on that journalist, it was out of her hands.

Felicity pays Roo an unexpected visit. She comforts her, reassuring her that what she’s doing to help Tane is amazing, that she would be a fantastic foster parent, and that the world is lucky to have her. On her way out of the Surf Club, Felicity eyes the overwhelming amount of supplies, gifts and donations on the counter that people donated for Maia. This gets the gears in her head turning – maybe there are other ways to help that don’t involve caring for a baby. She announces that Salt is going to hold a fundraiser, and she’s roping Xander in to run it.
