Irene Roberts (played by Lynne McGranger) gets an unexpected visitor on today's episode of Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings).
Martha Stewart (Belinda Giblin) has gone missing from the hospital.
But while her worried family is out searching for her, Martha turns up at Irene's beach house in a terrible state!
Martha demands Irene tell her husband, Alf (Ray Meagher) and daughter Roo (Georgie Parker) that there's nothing wrong with her.
Martha still insists that she has been having REAL conversations with her actual son, Kieran Baldivis (Rick Donald).
But Irene has no choice but to admit the terrible truth.
She saw Martha talking to herself on the Pier...
Can Alf and Roo convince Martha to return to the hospital to get the help she needs for her mental health?
Meanwhile, Justin Morgan (James Stewart) and Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) are devastated they may have to pull-out from buying their dream home.

Susie suggests Justin and Leah may be able to secure a loan through a private lender.
She steps away to make a private phonecall.
