Home and Away Spoilers: Robbo attacks John Palmer at The Diner!

Bad boy Robbo snaps when John demands to know what he is doing back in Summer Bay...

There's a big showdown at The Diner, when John confronts Robbo aka John Doe, Beckett Reid, and demands to know what he's doing back in the Bay. But tough guy Robbo doesn't take kindly to John's interrogation and warns the lifeguard to back off!

Everyone is shocked to see Robbo get rough with John, especially Justin's daughter Ava who has only just returned home after the kidnap ordeal. Could she be suffering from some kind of post-traumatic stress?

Tori is determined to find out what's going on with Robbo. But when the hospital doc catches up with him, she is shocked to hear how he is really a federal agent, Ryan Shaw, who has the official badge to prove it. But there's a double shock for Tori when she hears about Robbo's showdown with arch-rival Ash down at the beach, and now Ash is nowhere to be found. Has Ash left Summer Bay behind for good?

Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:30pm on Channel 5
