Home and Away’s Roo Stewart finds herself burdened with a mystery next week, after searching for answers from the long-lost father of Ryder Jackson Evan Slater. Roo (Georgie Parker) steps in while Ryder remains dubious about the reasons for Evan ‘s return to Summer Bay.
Evan (C4-0Daddo) turned upside down Ryder ‘s life by searching for him out after a lifetime away. Ryder (Lukas Radovich) wants to give Evan a chance next week but can’t shake the feeling he’s not being completely honest about his reasons for coming.
Ryder rightly reckons there must be a bigger reason why after all these years, Evan has suddenly decided to try to bond with him. As Roo discusses this prospect with Evan, she considers him as courageous as ever at first. However, when Roo refuses to let go of it, Evan revels reluctantly that he has a terminal disease. Evan explains that he wanted a chance to get to know Ryder before it was too late, and would prefer if his health had kept the teenager in the dark.
Roo is convinced that Ryder needs to learn the facts and drives Evan to treat his son in a more truthful way. Roo thinks she’s managed to get through to Evan, but when he keeps quiet around Ryder he’s left frustrated. Does she have to move in and say the truth to her nephew?
