Home and Away RECAP: Leah realises she’s been conned again and Nikau comes clean about his affair

Leah uncovers a vital element about Stephen Something’s true id and with it my hopes of her breaking apart with Justin are crushed.

Stephen Something could must be renamed Sly Stephen for his oh so slick strikes pulling Leah into his internet of lies and solely then, within the closing minutes of tonight’s episode, will we lastly get affirmation that Stephen isn’t who he says he’s and Leah has been conned again.

It all begins within the ordinary Summer Bay method, a deep and significant stroll alongside the seaside.

Leah lets on that she’s second guessing every little thing she is aware of about Justin whereas Stephen disguises his delight as concern.

But issues get heated between the pair and Leah shuts down any hypothesis about Justin’s potential murdering antics.

“I really don’t want to hear it,” Leah says in a chat to the hand second.

I’ll be within the resort for those who change your thoughts,” Stephen says.

Right…so if Leah decides her boyfriend is a murderer, only then will Stephen speak to her? 

Strangely is works. Next thing Leah is fairly certain Justin murdered Susie and might just turn him in to the cops.

It really speaks volumes about how poorly Leah regarded his character in the first place.

She goes to Stephen’s hotel room.

“I feel you’re proper about Justin,” Leah says as she paces round Stephen Something’s resort room.

“I feel sick.”

While this has been occurring Justin, who had been informed Justin will “stick out the rest of his detox under supervision”, all of a sudden turns up at house however Leah makes an excuse to not see him fairly but.

Now I don’t know the situation of the resort however one minute Leah and Stephen are within the resort and subsequent factor they’re outdoors the bait store purely to play into Justin’s paranoia, earlier than returning to the resort.

“She’s moved on” Justin proclaims upon seeing Leah and Stephen collectively.

“You promised me there was nothing going on between you two.”

Justin tries to start a fight but Tori pulls him away and takes him home where he continues his tantrum until the cops show up and take him to the station.

The evidence board is literally in the foyer where anyone could stumble upon the top secret facts.

Back at the hotel room Stephen leaves for a few moments to get some dinner when Leah discovers a phone, wads of cash and Susie’s laptop under the bed. She knows Justin is innocent now.

Leah better get out of there quick, or who knows, she could be murdered next. But she misses her chance and Stephen returns with two sandwiches which is a pretty disappointing dinner.

Over on team Parata, Nikau comes clean to Bella about his affair with Sienna.

It doesn’t come as a shock that Bella is completely distraught.

Nik’s behaviour is truly deplorable but it’s disappointing that the producers miss an opportunity to talk about the abuse of power in workplaces between employees and their superiors aka Sienna and Nik.

The entire episode leads up to Nikau delivering his crushing blow.

“There’s something…,” he struggles to say to Bella.

“I just…

“I wasn’t sure how to tell you or how you’d react…”

Um… wasn’t sure how his girlfriend would react to being cheated on with a woman they both hate?

Bella’s phone rings and Nik is saved by the bell, literally.

He decides he doesn’t want to destroy her future today, because Bella did such a good job finding a location for the shoot with “bit extra edge”.

It’s the obvious derelict alleyway with graffiti walls and stagnant pools of water. But I can’t really bag her out too much. We do it too.

“I’m going to inform Bella the reality tomorrow,” Nik muses.

Now it’s tomorrow.

Naturally Nik takes Bella to the seaside.

“I slept with Sienna,” Nik finally says.

Bella actually legs it away from Nikau to weep in her room.
