Justin Morgan (played by James Stewart) lands Theo Poulos (Matt Evans) in hot water at college in Home and Away (1:15pm - see our TV Guide for listings). 

Theo Poulos is feeling triumphant after getting a distinction on his TAFE assignment, but there’s trouble on the horizon because Leah Patterson-Baker (Ada Nicodemou) has forced Justin Morgan (James Stewart) to tell the TAFE that he wrote the assignment for her nephew…

But what neither Justin or Leah realise is that Theo rewrote the assignment before handing it in! So it was actually all his own work, no cheating!

Justin was thrilled to think that his academic endeavours got a distinction, so Theo didn’t have the heart to tell him that he passed the assignment on his own merit!

As Theo celebrates his success with Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett), Justin decides to lie low because can’t bring himself to break the news that he’s told the TAFE that he wrote the assignment…

However, Theo soon finds out that Justin has dropped him in it when he gets a disciplinary call from his TAFE tutor alleging that someone else completed his assignment.

If only Justin hadn’t offered to write the assignment in the first place, none of this would have happened!

Poor Theo!

Will Justin be able to backtrack with the TAFE and stop them from investigating the alleged cheating? Or will Justin’s interference lead to expulsion for Theo?

The proposal, however, is quickly shut down by a cautious Mackenzie. The last time Felicity had a debt solution, it got Mackenzie into trouble with the law and almost landed her in the clink!

Now that she’s on a good behaviour bond, Mac refuses to take any risks… but who said Flick’s proposal isn’t on the level?

Felicity is affronted by Mac’s presumption that her idea is dodgy because she’s just trying to help her friend and colleague out of a fix! 

Later, after Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) and Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor) offer their take on things, Mac realises she needs to accept help from others, instead of fighting her battles alone, and decides to smooth things over with an embittered Felicity…
