Spoilers: Secret family, illegal plans and a robbery in Home and Away

This week on Home and Away, Jasmine (Sam Frost) tries to connect with her half-brother Xander (Luke Van Os), but when he talks about his life with their father she realizes that not only was she abandoned as a kid, her Dad chose to have another family without her. Xander and Rose’s (Kirsty Marillier) presence in the Bay begins to bring up more pain as Jasmine questions why her father had a secret family for so many years.

Elsewhere, Leah (Ada Nicodemou) and Justin (James Stewart) are cautious when an emotional Dimitri (Salvatore Coco) arrives in the Bay and aggressively announces he wants to reconnect with Theo (Matt Evans). He practically forces the pair to take him to his son, and Theo is alarmed to see his father show up at the garage. What’s more, Dimitri isn’t leaving until Theo goes back to the city with him…

Here’s what’s coming up for the week beginning Monday May 9.

But when Logan overhears her sounding frantic on the phone, he picks up the business card the debt collector left at the door and decides to take matters into his own hands. Calling them up, he pays off the ‘car repayments’ Mackenzie is behind on…but will Mackenzie appreciate her boyfriend getting involved in her financial affairs?

Cash discovers a surprising secret about newcomer Rose

At the station, he gives her a stern lecture on safety – then is left speechless when a grinning Rose smacks down her police badge on the desk…

Mia is let down by her entire family and spends an evening alone

She wants to bring the family unit together, so she plans a big family dinner with Tane’s help, texting everyone to be at the house that evening. When Tane becomes concerned about Felicity’s unusual behaviour, Mia says he can go and be with her girl – then continues with preparing Ari’s signature lamb roast. However, that evening Mia waits for hours before realising her entire family has bailed on her…why have the Paratas let Mia down?

Cash betrays Jasmine’s confidence during intervention with Rose

Xander and Rose are beginning to second-guess their decision to come to the Bay and get to know Jasmine, as it becomes clear her childhood was very different from theirs and they had no idea their father was keeping such a big secret. Cash overhears Rose telling Xander they should leave, so he takes it upon himself to pull her to one side and put in a word for his girlfriend.
