Home and Away Spoilers – Eden makes a lifesaving phone call

This week on Home and Away in Australia, Eden’s forced to step in when Remi refuses medical help, while Leah finds herself back at square one with Justin.

Remi (Adam Rowland) takes a big step in his recovery this week as he’s discharged from hospital, but his stubbornness to accept help could end up being his downfall.

Two brothers, Wes (Josh McConville) and Mickey (Travis Jeffery), knocked Remi off his bike late last year. They were trying to dispose of his “body” when Eden (Stephanie Panozzo) occurred to intercept them.

Eden and Remi thus ended up crammed into the trunk of the brothers’ vehicle and taken prisoner in a distant estate. Once Mickey discovered that Remi was really still alive and Eden begged them to release him, he dropped Remi back on the side of the road and dialed 911.

After Remi was taken to Northern Districts Hospital, Bree was distraught as Levi (Tristan Gorey) took control and performed a risky procedure to save his life.

Traumatic blunt-force trauma to the heart left Remi with serious internal haemorrhaging,” Adam told TV Week. “Only by sheer luck was Levi in town, and he acted quickly to perform an emergency cardiac thoracotomy, an operation with a 20 per cent survival rate.

In the weeks that followed, Bree wouldn’t leave Remi’s side and made an effort to limit guest visits to reduce the danger of infection.

Bree delayed visiting her father because she was afraid of leaving Remi after finding out that he was on life support due to a serious brain injury sustained in a work-related accident.

Kirby (Angelina Thomson), to whom she had confided, ultimately betrayed her trust by telling Remi against her will. After a while, Bree came to the realization that Kirby was correct to do so, and she decided to return to her hometown of Newcastle to be with her family after Remi assured her he would be alright.

Bree urged Kirby to promise her that she would keep her updated on Remi’s progress as she was leaving, but it was obvious that Remi was already hiding the full amount of his suffering from Bree because the moment his lover left, he requested Kirby to get a nurse.

As TV Week notes, Remi returned home to the Lyrik household this week and was instructed to monitor his pain and take it easy, just as Bree had instructed. Remi decides not to tell Bree that he’s been released from her when she calls him for an update since she thinks she will simply be concerned about his returning home so quickly.

Eden and Kirby, his roommates, are perplexed as to why he would withhold it from her, but instead of subjecting them to an interrogation, he advises them to be quiet and mind their own business. Both girls decide to maintain Remi’s secret for the time being because they don’t want to lie to Bree.

It becomes clear that Remi is continuing to struggle with his pain however, despite his insistence that he doesn’t want any help or for his friends to get in touch with Bree. When they later find Remi writhing in agony on the bathroom floor, pouring with sweat, they know that they can’t stand by any longer.

Ignoring Remi’s pleas, Eden makes a potentially lifesaving phone call—but will she be too late?

Also this week, after taking a tentative step to reconnect with Justin (James Stewart), Leah (Ada Nicodemou) finds herself back at square one.

Leah has been living at Summer Bay House since her return from a mental health clinic, unable to trust herself to move back in with Justin after she threatened him with a knife during an insomnia-induced psychotic episode.

When Valerie (Courtney Clarke), Leah’s roommate from the clinic, unexpectedly showed up in Summer Bay last week, she found it difficult to comprehend Leah’s situation—especially considering that many people don’t have someone they love to go home to.

Valerie successfully convinced Leah to ask Justin to stay for dinner one night last week, but it seems this has only raised Justin’s expectations. Not taking the hint about wanting to take things slowly, Justin has been hanging around the diner like a lovesick puppy hoping to ‘bump into’ Leah if she happened to drop in.

Even Irene commented that it was a little bit sad, particularly when Leah hasn’t officially returned to work yet, and told him that Leah would quickly see through his plan.

Rather than return to work at the garage, Justin instead decided to call around at Summer Bay House, but finding no one home, he sat down outside and proceeded to wait.

As we return to the scene, as seen in a promo for tonight’s episode, Leah predictably isn’t too impressed to find Justin waiting on the doorstep when she returns with Valerie and Marilyn (Emily Symons).

I’ve done the wrong thing in coming here haven’t I?” he asks Leah as they sit down and talk.

I’m just not at the ‘show up whenever you want’ stage yet,” Leah admits to him.

Finally returning to work, Justin tells Theo that the idea he and Leah could actually be over for good is starting to look like a distinct possibility now.

Valerie is soon dropping by though, encouraging Justin to not give up on Leah.

Please keep fighting,” Valerie tells Justin. “She’s just scared.

Returning to Summer Bay House, Valerie gets to work on Leah again, reminding her that she had said she wanted to take one step at a time, and that maybe it’s time to actually take one of those steps.

That night, it seems like Leah followed Valerie’s advise and invited Justin over once more. The two bid each other farewell on the backyard patio. Leah gives Justin a tentative shake of her hand, and for a brief period, she begins to kiss him back.

Suddenly Leah pulls back in a panic, telling him to stop.

Please just go,” she tells him, as she hurriedly goes inside and shuts the door behind her.

Later in the week, the episode synopses show that Leah will issue Justin with an ultimatum… could she threaten to end things for good, or does she have something else in mind?
