Home and Away, Robbo, Dr Alex Neilson

Robbo undergoes hypnosis on Home and Away. But during his flashbacks he mistakes Dr Alex Neilson for Dylan Carter and attacks the shocked doc!

A sceptical Robbo (played by Jake Ryan) has agreed to let Dr Alex Neilson (Zoe Ventoura) use hypnotherapy on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings), to see if he is able to remember what happened the day dodgy detective Dylan Carter (Jeremy Lindsay Taylor) took him hostage on the boat several years ago.

At first, Robbo struggles to go under because he is afraid to lose control. But with the encouragement of his wife Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost), he tries again and this time begins to experience flashbacks to to his ill-fated encounter with Dylan Carter...
