When Robbo accompanies ex-fiancee Jasmine to her counsellng session, he's in for a surprise when counsellor Aiden offers him a session of his own
It looks like Robbo is finally making things up to ex-fiancee Jasmine Delaney by offering to drive the hospital nurse to her counselling lessons. Which is just as well, since he's partly to blame for her recent panic attacks.
During her session with counsellor Aiden Wilcox (played by Socratis Otto, who was transgender inmate Maxine Conway in Aussie prison drama, Wentworth), Jasmine opens up about her complicated relationship with Robbo and the way he abandoned her just like her own father did.
But things take an unexpected turn when Aiden suggests Robbo joins the session. And after meeting him, Aiden asks Robbo to remain in the room afterwards and suggests the gym boss might benefit from his own counselling session!
But is Robbo ready to face his personal demons under such circumstances?
Elsewhere in the Bay, Justin Morgan is trying to think up ideas for a date to surprise new girlfriend, Leah Patterson.
But when Leah gets a text message asking her to meet Justin at the beach, and discovers he wants to give her a surfing lesson, will Leah, who usually stays dry behind the counter at The Diner, take up Justin's offer and hit the water?
Meanwhile, Jett Palmer is still trying to find a new focus, after the explosion in Afghanistan which has left the young soldier in a wheelchair.
Can parents John Palmer and Marilyn Chambers suggest some ideas and help Jett pull off his new life project?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
