ALL BETS ARE OFF NOW SUMMER BAY IS STREAMING
HOME and Away is officially off the leash. The new special, Home and Away: All or Nothing would have to be the bloodiest episode ever seen of the hit Aussie soapie. Made for Foxtel Play, it looks like that means all bets are off. As the title suggests, All Or Nothing isn’t running in the family-friendly 7pm slot on Channel 7, so the makers used that freedom to create a much more brutal storyline. The result is more akin to Prison Break or Wentworth than surf and sand in Summer Bay.
When drug dealer Trevor “Gunno” Gunson (Diarmid Heidenreich) discovers Kyle Braxton (Nic Westaway) is serving time in the same prison and Kyle’s older brother Heath (Dan Ewing), along with wife Bianca (Lisa Gormley) are paying a visit, he goes on a rampage. Starting a riot with the sole purpose of using mayhem, Gunson tries to track down and kill the Braxton brothers. In a scene straight out of a Tarantino movie, punches are thrown and prison guards suffer bloody bashings. Gaping wounds abound.
“It is a lot darker (than normal Home and Away),” Ewing said.
“There are no walk-andtalks on the beach. It is a very different beast.”
Returning to Home and Away has provided stability during some turbulent personal times for Ewing who split from the mother of his son, Marni, and began a new relationship with dancer Kat Risteska.
“If the quality of any future Home and Away specials is as good … I certainly want to be involved,” Ewing says.
