FINN’S FALL FROM FAVOUR
STILL SO MUCH IN LOVE WITH Kasim, FINN GOES TO DRAMATIC LENGTHS TO WIN HIM BACK, BUT THE SITUATION SPIRALS OUT OF CONTROL WHEN FINN’S MUM STEPS IN TO AVENGE KASIM’S REJECTION OF HER SON
Saving thenmystery man Kasim Sabet’s life in the Hotten Bypass crash disaster several months ago forever changed Finn’s life. Keeping vigil at the comatose man’s bedside, Finn slowly fell obsessively in love with Kasim, even lying to hospital staff that he was actually Kasim’s partner! Over time, Finn behaved like a stalker! When Kasim recovered and tracked down his saviour, Finn was pleased that Kasim felt attracted to him. But before any real romance could develop, Finn’s worried brother Pete exposed his behaviour to Kasim, scaring him off.
Despite convincing Kasim (Ethan Kai) to give him another chance, Finn’s (Joe Gill) exuberance for the relationship smothered Kasim and he tried escaping from his grasp. Finally, Kasim’s homophobic father Paul (Joe Tucker) put an end to the romance, leaving Finn alone and totally bereft.
Now, weeks later, Finn remains in agony over losing Kasim and begins stalking him again, prompting Kasim to threaten police intervention. Undeterred, Finn breaks into Kasim’s house and trashes his bedroom, leaving a graffitied message on his wardrobe!
Immediately regretting his actions, Finn tries to repair the damage with the help of his sympathetic mother Emma (Gillian Kearney) and good friend Tracy (Amy Walsh), but when Kasim catches them all red-handed, he calls the police and Finn is charged with break and enter! Serves him right!
Appalled at Kasim’s treatment of her son, an increasingly unstable Emma sets out to avenge Finn. Stealing one of the Bartons’ taxis, Emma sets it on fire and frames Kasim for arson! Denying culpability, Kasim pleads his innocence and Finn believes him. But once Finn realises his mother perpetrated the crime, he explodes, telling her she’s ruined his chances of winning back the man he loves. Finn finally realises he’s lost Kasim for good.
Later, Finn finds the plane tickets to Australia that he’d earlier bought as a romantic getaway for him and Kasim and, despite Emma’s best efforts to stop him, he decides on a holiday down under after all, hoping that putting some distance between him and his problems will help him move on with his life.
