Is Brody the new bad boy on Home And Away?
THINGS AREN’T LOOKING GOOD FOR THE FORMER DRUG ADDICT
Brody Morgan is facing jail time, thanks to a string of charges surrounding his drug addiction. Due to the Summer Bay hunk’s recent run-ins with the law and penchant for drugtaking, he’s beginning to emerge as the new bad boy in town.
Now, the middle Morgan sibling (Jackson Heywood) could be about to land himself in jail – and big brother Justin (James Stewart) could not be more furious!
Add into the mix the fact that Brody is still seeing Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) in secret against Justin’s wishes, and you have one ropeable Morgan!
Justin believes that Ziggy is a trigger for the recovering drug addict, but Brody is insistent
that he genuinely cares for her.
‘You told me adrenaline is a trigger,’ Justin yells.
But Brody interjects: ‘Despite what you think, I actually do care about her!’
Even though he thinks it’s a bad idea, Justin agrees to keep their secret... until he receives some more terrible news.
‘It’s from the court,’ Brody says, thrusting a letter at Justin.
‘Looks like you won’t have to deal with my problems any more – the trial’s in two weeks.’
Brody has been served – his court date has been set and he could be going away for a long, long time.
Furthermore, Brody’s lawyer is on holidays, meaning they need to find a new one.
Feeling panicked about the possibility of going to jail, the young chef and Justin have a stroke of genius – Scarlett (Tania Nolan) can help!
The boys approach Justin’s on-again, off-again love interest to see if she can be his lawyer during his trial.
‘We could really use your help,’ Justin says to Scarlett.
But, much to Justin’s dismay, she’s not having a bar of it. ‘Sorry, I can’t,’ Scarlett says. Later, Justin overhears Brody telling Ziggy how scared he is about going to court.
Seeing her calm Brody, Justin begins to realise that maybe she actually is a good influence on him. ‘I’m scared... I don’t know what’s going to happen,’ Brody tells her.
Is Brody destined to spend some time in jail? And will Ziggy stay by his side, even if he is convicted of a crime?
Justin is horrified to learn his younger brother Brody (above) may be going to jail. The Morgan brothers (played by Orpheus, James and Jackson, right) have taken the Bay by storm since arriving last year!
