Home and Away Spoilers – Tane and Felicity attempt to foster a baby

This week on Home and Away in Australia, Felicity steps in when Tane finds himself unable to foster the baby he found abandoned last week, while Theo becomes reliant on Valerie’s pills.

Tane (Ethan Browne), who was shocked to see a newborn left on the beach last week in a gym bag, has refused to leave her side even after she was taken to Northern Districts Hospital.

Thankfully the baby girl was unharmed, and whilst recently promoted Senior Constable Rose (Kirsty Marillier) has kicked off her first investigation in her new rank, social worker Harper (Jessica Redmaybe) quickly started the ball rolling in finding some emergency foster care.

Tane felt an instant bond with the baby, as she smiled up at him when placing her in the care of paramedic Jo (Katie Horky), and housemates Mackenzie (Emily Weir) and Mali (Kyle Shilling) were quite surprised as to how protective Tane has become of her.

I didn’t realise you were such a baby guy,” Mali commented, as Tane then went on to explain that he’s always wanted a family, and that is part of the reason he recently split from wife Felicity (Jacqui Purvis).

But as Tane persisted in refusing to leave the hospital after staying up late, Mali and Mac’s worries for him increased.

According to TV Week, this week Mac and Mali hesitantly inquire about Tane’s intentions. They are taken aback when he says he wants to take care of the child in the event that her parents are absent.

Tane has already given her the nickname Maia, a Māori name that denotes bravery, tenacity, and self-assurance.

Mali questions if Tane is just attempting to make up for the loss of Flick in his life, but Tane is resolute and won’t talk about it any more.

Tane is doing his best to move forward and focus on life after the split,” Ethan told TV Week. “He’s trying to figure out what to do with himself, but he’s doing very well and the future is looking hopeful.

With his housemates failing to change his mind, Bree (Juliet Godwin) attempts to make Tane look at things more objectively, but he’s unswayed as he confirms his plan to proceed.

However the New Zealand native soon finds a stumbling block, when he realises that in order to register as a foster parent, he either has to be a permanent resident, or an Australian citizen.

He wants the best for this baby and to make sure she’s placed in a proper home and care,” Ethan continued. “He can’t help but feel responsible for her, as he found her.

Alf (Ray Meagher) and Roo (Georgie Parker) are discussing Tane’s situation when Flick overhears them.

Suddenly feeling inspired to help Tane, she begins to look into how to apply to be a caregiver herself.

It’s a shock turnaround for Flick, whose desperation to not have any children saw her continue to take the pill as she and Tane tried for a baby, and it was this act of betrayal that saw the end of their marriage.

How will Tane react when he learns of Flick’s plans? Will he believe she genuinely wants to help, or see it as a rather transparent plan to draw Tane back to her?

Elsewhere in Summer Bay, Valerie (Courtney Clarke) is seemingly beginning to regret getting Theo (Matt Evans) hooked on pills.

Valerie had been in a mental health clinic for the past six months, unable to deal with her family’s disavowal of her following her involvement in an accident that claimed her brother Josh’s life. Valerie had discharged herself and traveled to Summer Bay to support her former roommate, Ada Nicodemou, after meeting Leah during her own hospital stay.

Theo and Valerie drew each other’s attention right away, and when Theo was feeling low, Valerie provided him a small item to lift his spirits, explaining that it was her way of coping with thoughts of her brother.

Theo was eager to taste it again after a day of euphoria and offered to pay for another supply. However, bandmate and ex-girlfriend Kirby (Angelina Thomson) has observed Theo’s small excursions and has berated him after catching him surfing last week after witnessing him intoxicated the previous evening.

When she discovered that Theo had completely forgotten about their scheduled interview for their duo act later that morning, she became even less impressed.

Theo, the frontman band Lyrik, hasn’t always been able to handle media appearances; at their album launch interview, he froze. But Valerie had urged Theo to do this interview alone, claiming that if Kirby never trusted him, he would never get better.

Kirby promised Theo that she would do the interview, but Theo insisted on going ahead as scheduled after receiving additional pressure from Valerie. However, it appears that he will require some assistance.

As a promo for this week’s episodes show, Theo is impressed with himself when he later reads the interview online, noting that he doesn’t even remember saying a particular quote.

Maybe the fact that you don’t remember saying it means you probably shouldn’t be doing interviews while you’re high,” Valerie warns him.

Why?” Theo asks. “I’m normally terrible at this stuff, now I’m epic!”

Band manager Justin hears from a local radio station the next morning, who want to interview Theo.

Theo panics when he learns that it would be later that day, and quickly turns to Valerie for more of her supply, the third day in a row.

The only reason I did well on that interview is because of it,” he begs her. “Please!

This is live Theo, okay?” Valerie reminds him. “What you do is out there forever. Do you really think you can handle that high?

Yes, 100%,” Theo replies.

Is Theo becoming too reliant on the pills, and will Valerie take a stand and stop him before it’s too late?
