Coming up next week on Home and Away in the UK, Felicity has grave concerns for Cash as his mental health continues to dive, whilst Nikau announces he’s going to New York…
Since he was awakened from his induced coma following emergency surgery (twice! ), Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) hasn’t been in a good place due to bullet wounds received while performing his job duties.
After visiting his now-ex-girlfriend Jasmine (Sam Frost), Cash had other things on his mind as he took part in the undercover raid on the Death Adders motorcycle club. As a result, he neglected to put on his bulletproof vest. Before firing his own fatal rounds, Cash was shot twice while pursuing the bikie leader Marty (Ben Wood).
For a while, Cash’s condition remained precarious, but new doctor Bree Cameron (Juliet Godwin) managed to save him.
When Cash regained consciousness, his sister Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) confirmed that he had killed Marty, which is when Cash started to get very upset. He was angry to learn that his coworker Rose (Kirsty Marillier) was out of town when he desperately wanted to speak to her to find out what had transpired.
Bree asked Flick to go because Cash kept having breakdowns, and Cash acknowledged that he wasn’t sure how he could live with himself after taking a man’s life.
When Rose first arrives in Summer Bay, she first refuses to meet Cash because of her own remorse over what transpired. She ultimately goes to the hospital with Xander (Luke Van Os), but she can’t give Cash the information he wants because she wasn’t there when it happened.
As Cash continues to press Rose for details, Rose storms out in tears as Cash begins to rip off the medical equipment.
Next week, when the action picks back up, Bree threatens to hold Cash back from leaving the hospital, but he only manages to make it three steps before almost falling to the ground.
When Bree worries about Cash’s mental health, he responds that he will be required to attend counselling through his job, but Bree doesn’t believe it can wait. Cash initially dismisses Bree’s question about if his family has a history of depression as an act of breakdown; nonetheless, this response sticks in his head when he subsequently presses Flick for a conversation.
On her return, Cash asks Flick what it felt like to have a breakdown—whilst he was there for her when she had her own mental issues, he didn’t fully understand it—can she help him?
