Home and Away viewers were shocked last week when there was a freak car accident involving Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner) and guest character Millie (Zara Zoe), whose best friend Jo died in the crash.
This week, viewers will witness lots of hospital drama as Logan and Millie recover from their injuries. Logan is clearly suffering from internal turmoil, as he tries to come to grips with the fact that he could have caused a young woman’s death.
Xander Delaney (Luke Van Os) becomes close with Millie, and his sister Rose Delaney (Kirsty Marillier) is concerned that he’s blurring his professional life with his personal life. This could have major implications in the future — does he know what he’s doing?
How far is Mackenzie willing to go?
The glitz and glamour of the illegal poker nights haven't left Summer Bay, with this week’s episodes promising to be the most explosive ones yet. Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) finds herself in an even worse position, ending up with a $150,000 debt owed to mystery player PK. The sleazy PK propositions Mackenzie, offering to wipe the debt in exchange for sex — something she is considering as she knocks on his hotel door.
Mackenzie has had bad luck in the love department, after being left by Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) while pregnant, and then dealing with Logan’s ex Neve Spicer (Sophie Bloom) turning up recently. Fans have been wanting her to have a happy ending, but she has completely left Logan in the dark about her situation which doesn't bode well.
Jacqui Purvis, who plays Felicity Newman, mentions that her character is extremely worried for Mackenzie since she is the one who got her into the poker situation. When asked if the actress has any card skills herself, she laughs and says: “No! I wish I was, I could maybe make a lot of money.”
Theo serenades Chloe
On the other side of the bay, there’s something a bit sweeter brewing, with Theo Poulos (Matt Evans) and Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett) finally deciding to become a couple. Fans will be in for a treat as Theo whisks Chloe away to serenade her over a romantic picnic.
Chloe has been through emotional turmoil lately, after killing her father Matthew Montgomery (James Sweeny), witnessing her stepfather Ari die, and saying farewell to her mother Mia Anderson (Anna Samson).
Matt was excited for this change, telling Yahoo Lifestyle: “The pairing of the two definitely bring out the good qualities in each individual. Theo always thought Chloe was super cute, and he couldn’t be happier that she decided to be with him.”
Matt Evans opens up about bringing music to Summer Bay
The star tells Yahoo Lifestyle that music has always been his number one passion, which led to him studying a Bachelor of Contemporary Music in WA and then being part of The Voice Season 9. “Music was all I wanted to do,” he recalls.
“I hadn’t found my love or interest for acting yet, but things have changed rapidly. So to combine both of these worlds is a dream come true.
“One of the first things I said [when joining the show] was that I was really keen to bring music in wherever I can, and funnily enough they listened to me!”
When asked if he’d ever serenaded a girl in real life he admits he may have when he was a teenager.
“It might sound cringe, but music was the easiest way I could express myself,” he confessed.
