FREYA DURIC (SOPHIE HENSSER)
Written by Sarah Walker
Directed by Scott Hartford Davis
Xavier’s feisty ex, Freya, has arrived in the Bay and is creating waves with everyone she meets. She has come to reclaim her man. After witnessing Xavier and Freya pashing, Ruby realises just how much of a threat this worldly temptress is and Ruby does her best to warn Freya off. But her attempts are laughable – as Nicole puts it Freya can run rings around Ruby in her sleep. Ruby knows she can’t compete with this wild young thing Xavier obviously finds so excitingly attractive. But where does that leave Ruby?
Nicole on the other hand is quite taken by Freya thinking that she is a breath of fresh air to Summer Bay. While Nicole continues the struggle to make good friends in Summer Bay she wonders if maybe she has finally met someone she can connect with.
Meanwhile Hugo tells Xavier to get rid of Freya. Xavier knows it’s not that easy as he has strong feelings for her and would do anything to be with her. But the question remains – does she only want him because she thinks she can’t have him?
When Hugo arrives home to find Freya has let herself in to Martha’s house he makes it clear she is unwelcome. Unperturbed she wonders if maybe she went for the wrong brother and before Hugo knows it Freya is kissing him. At this moment, Xavier arrives home and in a jealous rage he charges at Hugo and a fight ensures. Returning from a peaceful picnic, Roman and Martha arrive in the middle of all this anarchy – is this what Martha can expect after generously allowing Hugo and Xavier to live in her home?
