Extended Summary

Heath is rocked when Connie tells him that she won’t be accepting his plea for joint custody. In the aftermath of the Adam saga, she is concerned for Darcy’s safety – Heath will still be allowed supervised visits, but that’s it. Heath breaks the news to Darcy and reveals the reasons for the decision – he used to be a criminal. Darcy blames him for the whole thing – because of his mistakes, she has to suffer. Darcy’s outburst leaves Heath convinced that his blunders in the past have stuffed up Darcy’s life for good. With his guilt and anger intensifying, he splits up with Bianca. Bianca says that such a decision is only stemming from the heartache of losing his daughter, but Heath begs to differ – their relationship isn’t working out for him.

Tamara asks Casey if they could move in together. The suggestion motivates both to go on the hunt for jobs. Casey applies for the janitor’s position at Summer Bay High, but due to his criminal record, the board won’t allow it. However, Gina tells him that John is looking for a handy man at the surf club – Casey might find a job yet.

Maddy skips into Summer Bay House, having met with Gina at the Diner. She tells Roo that she is looking forward to enrolling at Summer Bay High. Her bubble soon bursts with the arrival of her mother Tanya. Adamant that her arrival means nothing, Maddy decides she’s going nowhere. That is until Spencer arrives on the scene relaying advice from Roo – together they should return home and give their parents another chance.
