Terese Robinson (Rebekah Elmaloglou) is confused about why Jesse failed to turn up to visit his mum Julie Quill (Gail Easdale) in prison.

After all, it was for Jesse’s benefit that Terese agreed to go in the first place!

She hadn’t planned on seeing the woman who was responsible for her son’s death, but now that she has come face-to-face with his killer, she feels like a weight has been lifted.

Although Jesse’s the son of the woman who was responsible for her own son’s death, Terese has actually grown quite fond of him, so she’s worried when it seems he’s gone AWOL.

Terese goes to speak to David to offload about Jesse’s unexpected departure, unaware that he’s the reason that the boy’s left town. He stepped in to save his dad’s bacon after Paul (Stefan Dennis) revealed that he had lied to Terese over the aborted investment in Quill.

If Jesse had mentioned it to his mum, the secret might have come out which would have meant it was game over for Paul and Terese!

David feels terrible about concealing the truth as Terese feels bereft at Jesse’s sudden exit
