Hospital nurse Freya and doctor, David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) are being blackmailed over the circumstances surrounding the death of Freya's ex-boyfriend, Gareth Bateman at River Bend.
As the blackmailer's threats continue, they demand a ransom in exchange for their silence.
On today's episode of the Aussie soap, the ransom deadline is fast approaching.
Freya, David and his husband, Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) worry as they struggle to raise the full amount of money.
With time running out, they consider pawning off treasured items.
However, Freya has a mysterious alternate option up her sleeve.
