Home and Away spoilers: Colby Thorne wakes from his coma

Home and Away - Colby Thorne, Jasmine Delaney

Jasmine is relieved when love interest Colby finally wakes up from his coma. But Colby suffers a setback when he hears he has a hereditary condition...

Robbo is desperate for his buddy Colby to wake up from his coma, as he could help clear Robbo's name and prove he didn't murder Hazel Easton.

Everyone is relieved when Colby finally does awaken, and he is stunned to discover the truth about Ebony and Hazel Easton and blames himself for everything, since Ebony was out to get him for fatally shooting her no-good brother Boyd. However, Colby is crushed by the news he has a hereditary condition, which caused his near-fatal reaction to the drug evil Ebony injected him with.

Also at the hospital, Maggie is exhausted by her family's constant disagreements about her cancer treatment. But she's especially worried about her relationship with mum Diana, who stormed off after Maggie decided not to take part in the clinical trial Diana had recommended. Can Maggie find a way to re-connect with her mum?

Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!
