Coming up this week on Home and Away in Australia, Remi fears for Bree’s safety as her husband arrives in town, while Ziggy makes a surprising decision about her pregnancy.
Nearly two months have passed since the arrival of new doctor Bree Cameron (Juliet Godwin) in Summer Bay, but aside from talking about her career and her passion for surfing, Bree has been quite quiet regarding her personal life.
Bree ultimately consented to go out for a drink with Remi (another newbie who quickly warmed up to the new doctor) after he repeatedly tried to ask her out, but only as a method to meet people in her new hometown.
Bree kept rejecting Remi’s advances, but when the latter became weary of her and inquired as to why, Bree disclosed that she was married!
Bree stated that she didn’t wear a wedding ring owing to them being an infection risk, making Remi feel ashamed and remarking that she could have told him weeks before and prevented him from making a fool of himself.
Bree continued by telling Remi that her husband Jacob was a fly-in, fly-out mechanic in the mines and that they had been high school sweethearts. It indicates that despite spending a lot of time apart—they now haven’t spoken in over two months—they are able to get along.
Bree was clearly jealous when she discovered that Remi had made up a band rehearsal in order to get laid with nurse Stacey (Maleeka Gasbarri); it seems that Bree liked part of the attention Remi was providing her after all, despite her admission and Remi’s promise to behave himself.
This week, Bree is surprised when Jacob (Alex Williams) rocks up in Summer Bay unannounced, and it’s clear that there’s a lot more going on with their relationship than first meets the eye.
“This is cosy,” Jacob comments in tonight’s episode, as he approaches Bree and Remi on Salt’s balcony.
While Remi extends his hand to greet his friend’s spouse, Bree instantly leaps to her feet and hugs Jacob. Remi is met with a chilly response.
Bree and Jacob head out, where he immediately accuses her of flirting with Remi. Bree denies it, but Jacob isn’t interested in her explanation as he turns his back on her, telling her “I don’t want to hear it.”
Bree appears to be alarmed by her husband’s entrance, as Remi (Luke Van Os), who has noticed the tension, relates to Xander in a conversation.
Remi worries about Bree’s response to her husband’s presence and wonders what’s going through Jacob’s head.
When Bree and Jacob visit the motel, things take an evil turn behind closed doors. Jacob pulls Bree’s wrist and compels her to look him in the eye while she is nearly paralysed with dread.
“Tell me again that nothing’s going on between you two…” he says menacingly.
Prior to Bree’s introduction, it was made known that she had a complicated background that would be explored in the months to come and that she was moving to Summer Bay in search of a new beginning.
“At first, she settles into the Bay well – she loves her new home, the epic surf and the welcoming locals,” Juliet later told TV Week. “But as weeks go by, we learn there’s rather more to Bree’s story.”
With Remi already suspecting that there’s something going on, will it be long before Jacob’s true colours are exposed?
As their pregnancy enters the second trimester, expectant parents Dean (Patrick O’Connor) and Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) in Summer Bay finally accomplish a goal.
Ziggy has had morning nausea and dizziness during the past three weeks. The couple tried to keep the pregnancy a secret from everyone but their immediate family until the 12-week mark.
Ziggy decided to withhold the news from her supervisor Justin (James Stewart) after he gave her a promotion, despite the fact that her parents were also notified and Dean’s sister Mackenzie (Emily Weir) had a good idea of what was going on.
Ziggy was obliged to tell Tane (Ethan Browne), who discovered her unconscious on the floor in the garage, the truth after she passed out there after the smell of some chemicals gave her a weird turn.
Initial worries for the infant were present, but a phone call to the nurse quickly allayed Ziggy’s worries.
This week, though, Ziggy abruptly develops a delusional belief that the baby won’t live to term. She cancels the 12-week ultrasound because she’s worried about what the doctor will say to them.
Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, Sophie Dillman admitted that playing out Ziggy’s pregnancy opposite her real-life partner Patrick O’Connor has been an odd experience.
“All of a sudden, all these feelings and thoughts come into it like oh my god, what happens if we actually have a baby?” she said. “Is this how it works? Will you be scared, I’m scared! Am I meant to be this sick?”
“I don’t think you think about [pregnancy symptoms] properly until you’ve actually experienced them,” Sophie continued. “But I’m fake experiencing them, so I now have to think about it. It’s really weird, but it’s been really fun. Really, really fun playing a pregnant woman with food cravings and nausea and mood swings.”
It appears that Ziggy soon gets over her latest wobble, as the synopses show them finally announcing the news during Thursday’s triple-bill.
But it seems the next hurdle is round the corner, as a later spoiler suggests that Dean might not be able to stomach witnessing the actual birth…
