Coming up this week on Home and Away in Australia, Jasmine doesn’t react well to Cash’s birthday surprise, whilst Bella rushes to save Chloe from drowning.
Cash Newman’s (Nicholas Cartwright) and Jasmine Delaney’s (Sam Frost) romance is still in its early stages after his arrival in Summer Bay last year, but Cash is stunned to find from his sister Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) that it’s actually his girlfriend’s birthday this week!
The day of Jasmine’s birthday arrived last week, and John (Shane Withington) ran into her and inquired about her plans.
Jasmine quickly dismissed him, claiming that birthdays were not her thing and that she had no plans to celebrate them.
When Jasmine ran into her best friend Felicity, she mistook her remark of celebrating beverages for Flick’s desire to celebrate her new job; knowing that her friend was unaware of her birthday, she stayed silent about it.
In the end, it was Irene (Lynne McGranger) who told Flick about Jasmine’s birthday.
Irene had hoped to persuade Jasmine to let her prepare a special roast supper that evening, but Jasmine refused. She emphasized her dissatisfaction with the attention and expressed her want to let it go, but she did accept a birthday cookie from Irene as she exited the café.
When Cash enters the diner this week, Flick chastises him for not informing her that it was Jasmine’s birthday—not expecting him to be as dumb as she was!
She makes jokes about how terrific of a boyfriend he is and afterwards attempts to persuade him to do something special for her.
“Jasmine is not going to dump me because I ignored her birthday,” Cash tells his sister, but his confidence wanes mid-sentence. “Would she?”
While Cash may wonder why Jasmine didn’t inform him and whether it’s best not to make a fuss, it appears like he eventually caves in after Flick cautions him that he doesn’t want to find out the hard way whether she’ll dump him for failing to celebrate the occasion.
That evening, Jasmine is expecting a quiet night in when Cash tells her to close her eyes and leads her onto the pier.
When she opens them, she finds a romantic candlelit dinner set out for the two of them, with a big birthday cake as the centrepiece.
But Cash is shocked when Jasmine rejects his kind gesture.
“I didn’t ask for this” she exclaims, “I didn’t want ANY of this“…. and she walks off!
It would seem that the two aren’t at loggerheads for long though, as the promo released last week shows that after talking things through, Cash reveals to Jasmine that he’s in love with her.
Jasmine admits that she feels the same way, and the two share a kiss.
However, it still begs the question—just why is Jasmine so reluctant to celebrate her own birthday?
And how will the pair ever stop Felicity from acting as their third wheel…?
In Summer Bay, Chloe (Sam Barrett) continues to struggle with Ari’s captivity, and there appears to be a surprising surprise.
Since accidentally killing her biological father Matthew Montgomery (James Sweeny) by knocking him over the head while grabbing Mia, Chloe has been plagued by remorse (Anna Samson). Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) was the one who took responsibility for the incident, and he is currently awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty.
Mia was astonished to learn how distraught Chloe was over the family’s disintegration when she discovered her diary last week, and she was even more saddened to learn that Chloe believed Mia’s life would have been much better if she hadn’t been around.
“There are so many things that have been ruined because of me” she wrote.
“Mum should never had had me. I was never meant to be born. None of this would’ve happened and everyone would be better off if I wasn’t here.”
Chloe was furious that Mia had betrayed her trust, and told her that she needed an outlet for her thoughts considering the whole family has been trying to act as if everything is normal.
Mia agreed that they needed to be more open with one another, and Chloe subsequently burnt the diary to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands.
But, according to this week’s spoilers, Chloe will go one step further by punishing herself, which will result in her nearly drowning!
Bella (Courtney Miller), the only person outside of the family who knows Chloe’s secret, rushes to her rescue, while a preview published last week depicts Mia arriving at the hospital in a frenzied state.
Could Chloe’s mental state be about to cause her to try and take her own life, or is it just an accident…?
A new Home and Away promo has promised ‘A week of love, new beginnings, romance, heartbreak and drama’, as Dean’s mum meets Jai for the first time, Tane and Nikau return from their trip away, and Mackenzie sees Logan and his ex-girlfriend grow ever closer.
