Home and Away Spoilers – Jasmine talks Mia into leaving Summer Bay

Coming up next week on Home and Away in the UK, a chat with Jasmine leads Mia to make a big decision about her and Chloe’s future, whilst Roo anticipates Martha’s return to Summer Bay…

Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) has been grieving the loss of her husband Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) for the past month, but she’s also become increasingly uneasy in Summer Bay.

Mia is still struggling to adjust to life after Ari, despite the support of her own daughter Chloe (Sam Barrett) and her brother-in-law Tane (Ethan Browne) and nephew Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo).

Mia’s pain hasn’t gone unnoticed by her family, despite her best efforts to put on a brave face.

Tane has been sleeping with one eye open, keeping an eye out for Mia sleepwalking. In one occasion, Mia wandered into the path of an oncoming car in the dead of night, only to be saved at the last second by Tane.

It appears that progress will be achieved next week. Chloe finally reaches out to her mother after her latest altercation with Bella (Courtney Miller), but witnessing how distraught her daughter has become just makes matters worse for Mia.

She explains to Tane that she doesn’t know how to help Chloe, and that night she interrupts him and girlfriend Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) by sleepwalking again.

Mia is humiliated to learn the next day about the encounter; she thought she’d moved on. Tane assures her that she has nothing to be afraid about, but he is compelled to reconsider after speaking with Flick, who is concerned that Mia is on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Flick is well aware of the warning signs, and she is concerned for Tane, given Mia’s obvious need for more assistance than he can provide.

Flick is proven correct seconds later when Tane receives a call from Ziggy—Mia has locked herself in the office and thrown everyone out of the gym!

Tane discusses with Nik and confesses that it’s time Mia needed professional help, even if Mia appears to get over her wobble shortly after Tane goes to check on her.

The two invite Mia to Salt to talk things over, but Mia is annoyed by the intervention and says she’ll figure things out on her own.

Jasmine runs into Mia on Flat Beach the next morning and inquires about her well-being. When Mia says she expects to see Ari everywhere she goes, Jasmine understands because she went through the same thing after losing Robbo (Jake Ryan).

Jasmine reveals that she had to leave the bay for a while when the memories were too much for her, which offers Mia fuel for thinking…

Later that day, Mia calls Tane back to the gym and admits that he was right, she can’t go on like she is. But rather than see a counsellor, she’s already decided what she needs to do.

Mia wants to leave Summer Bay for good, and take Chloe with her!

In another part of the bay, Roo (Georgie Parker) tries to divert her attention away from her mother Martha (Belinda Giblin) by assisting Marilyn (Emily Symons).

Marilyn has been at a loss since her return to Summer Bay, which was exacerbated by the fact that she had originally stopped taking the prescription provided for psychiatric difficulties following the organophosphate exposure at Salt. Marilyn admitted her error and agreed to begin treatment after speaking with resident Dr Logan (Harley Bonner).

This week, Roo decides that Marilyn needs some purpose in life, and so draws up a list of activities for the two of them to do together. Marilyn insists she’s fine, but Roo won’t take no for an answer.

Despite her best efforts to avoid Roo, Marilyn is finally worn down and reluctantly agrees to a meditation session.

Marilyn isn’t really feeling it though, and being ‘instructed’ by Roo only adds to her frustration when Marilyn herself has been meditating on her own for years. Marilyn calls a stop to the session, and gently tells Roo that she’s had a revelation—she’s realised that people should be left to deal with their own problems, at their own pace.

The not-too-subtle hint is completely lost on Roo though, as she expresses her happiness at being able to help!

When Alf (Ray Meagher) calls to tell Roo that he’s finally bringing Martha home, everything fades away. With Martha’s health concerns, it’s the first good news the family has heard in a long time, but Roo is worried about what she’ll say to her mother.

Since Martha rejected down Roo’s offer of a lifesaving kidney, the two have had a strained relationship, with Martha retreating to her home in Merimbula, where her son Kieran (Rick Donald) has been caring for her.

When Irene (Lynne McGranger) bumps into Roo later that day, Roo reveals that Martha had a sudden turn for the worse and has been taken to hospital.

Roo isn’t sure of the details, but according to Kieran it’s not looking too good… will Martha make it home?
