As a good-natured physician, Tori often places the interests of someone above her own. Yet this week in Home And Away, she makes a leap of faith into Christian’s arms, practically.
After their first flirtatious meeting, the hospital halls have buzzed with rumours about Tori (Penny McNamee) and Christian (Ditch Davey).
They’ve got chemistry, it’s obvious, but Tori just couldn’t seem to find words around him. One bumbling conversation after the next prompted her to conclude that she was unlikely to be involved … before now.
The pair find themselves at odds as to how to handle him after a busy night in which Tane (Ethan Browne) is rushed to the emergency ward with serious head and liver injuries.
Christian wants to work immediately, but Tori thinks it’s only going to cause more harm. Tori fumbles for her vocabulary in a tense debate until she understands that she has rank and stands her ground.
Penny, 37, tells TV WEEK, “Christian is headstrong and secure in his career, while Tori is secure in his talents, but has a quieter bedside manner!”
After their confrontation, Tori retreats to her office, but Christian follows her in. He apologizes for insulting her and once again disarms Tori. In a moment of steamy desire, to her own surprise and Christian’s, Tori throws herself at thePenny McNamee and Ditch Davey on the set of Home And Away.
The pair lock lips, but it is unprofessional to realize their actions and pull apart, Tori leaving before anyone notices.
“Penny says of Tori ‘s casual kiss,” Tori is a rule-follower and has been all her life. So she needs to jump and not care about the consequences.
