Tyler gets a shock when Hamish shows up on the fam­ily’s doorstep.

TV Soap - - Inside -

Tyler meets his bi­o­log­i­cal dad Hamish who seems to have a se­cret agenda, on Neigh­bours.

It’s been an emo­tional roller­coaster for the Bren­nan broth­ers af­ter the death of their fa­ther Rus­sell. But Tyler has strug­gled the most with the rev­e­la­tion that Rus­sell was not in fact his bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther and now his real dad has come to town.

How­ever, things just don’t com­pletely add up about Hamish (Sean Tay­lor) who seems to be play­ing at some­thing. Tyler (Travis Burns) and his broth­ers are none the wiser though and there’s an in­stant rap­port be­tween Tyler and Hamish when they meet over a game of pool.

Un­aware that the man he was play­ing with was ac­tu­ally his fa­ther, Tyler gets a shock when Hamish shows up on the Bren­nans’ doorstep and re­veals who he is. Tyler is re­luc­tant to get more in­volved with Hamish be­cause his emo­tions over the whole sit­u­a­tion are so painful but his broth­ers give him a push.

Tyler de­cides to try hanging out with Hamish again and they get along like a house on re. Hamish tells the boys he never met Rus­sell (the late Rus­sell Kiefel) but later dur­ing an­other chat with Tyler re­veals the op­po­site and quickly cov­ers his tracks.

The slip-up isn’t no­ticed by Tyler but in­creas­ingly there’s a sense that all is not quite what it seems. And that is the case when Tyler shows Hamish the

boat he and Aaron (Matt Wil­son) in­her­ited from Rus­sell.

As they bond with each other Tyler ad­mits that he is still ques­tion­ing how he feels about Rus­sell. Hamish sug­gests that Aaron’s method of call­ing Rus­sell’s lost phone and leav­ing mes­sages isn’t quite as silly as Tyler thinks.

So Tyler gives this method a shot and vents his tur­moil over Rus­sell to the phone, not re­al­is­ing that Hamish is in pos­ses­sion of the mo­bile and lis­ten­ing to ev­ery word Tyler has said.

Things get even weirder when Hamish makes some sub­tle hints about Tyler’s man­age­ment of the garage’s nances. Then Hamish tells Tyler and Aaron not to go through with their plans to sell the boat to cash in their in­her­i­tance. The boys take his ad­vice on board not re­al­is­ing there might be some­thing else go­ing on. Just what is Hamish up to?

SUR­PRISE Tyler (Travis Burns) (right) gets on well with Hamish (Sean Tay­lor).
