Cas­sius re­alises his days are num­bered as he hides out on Neigh­bours

G uilt is over­whelm­ing Cas­sius as he tries to hide his sin­is­ter se­cret: he mur­dered his bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther Hamish Roche and is let­ting his half-brother Tyler rot in prison for it! Mak­ing love to Piper, who still loves Tyler, only in­tensi es his feel­ings of shame. Should he sur­ren­der to the po­lice and hope­fully sal­vage at least Piper’s for­give­ness for his ac­tions, even if their af­fair has to end?

Con­stant phone calls from his mum Elissa (Ver­ity Charl­ton) only add to the pres­sure as Ned (Ben Hall) is ask­ing her

too many ques­tions. Grow­ing para­noid, Elissa tells her son it’d be best if they ed the coun­try to a non-ex­tra­di­tion des­ti­na­tion. They’d be safe then. Se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing it, Cas­sius (Joe David­son) is thrown when Piper (Mavournee Hazel) weighs in and in­ter­rupts – and makes what proves to be a fate­ful de­ci­sion about the sit­u­a­tion. Mean­while, Piper’s fam­ily and friends con­tinue hunt­ing for an­swers as to what Cas­sius is hid­ing, fear­ing she could be in grave dan­ger! The race is on to nd her be­fore it’s too late, but no-one knows they’re shacked up and hid­ing out in a mo­tel room...

Cas­sius be­comes more ag­i­tated with each pass­ing sec­ond, while Piper ner­vously works through her emo­tions and con­fu­sion to gure out what ex­actly is hap­pen­ing to the man who soothed her bro­ken heart af­ter los­ing Tyler. Her only sal­va­tion may be the po­lice – who are now alerted to the un­fold­ing sit­u­a­tion – but Piper may be too emo­tion­ally scat­tered to just stand by adn see him ar­rested. Even if he is, it won’t lead to a peace­ful res­o­lu­tion for her any­time soon.

Should Cas­sius be brought to jus­tice, it could mean Tyler will nally be ex­on­er­ated and re­leased from jail. In the af­ter­math of the mo­tel melee, the youngest Bren­nan brother is rmly in ev­ery­body’s thoughts... with Aaron (Matt Wil­son) break­ing down. wor­ry­ing that what­ever hap­pens it won’t be enough to over­turn Tyler’s con­vic­tion. While she waits for the in­evitable, Piper, too, is full of trep­i­da­tion. She wants Tyler to come home but ev­ery­thing is at risk of chang­ing for­ever. Be­ing in prison has most likely and ir­re­versibly al­tered his state of mind and even though he may have his free­dom he may not want her – given her in­ti­macy with the si­b­ling who left him to un­justly rot in hell…

EMO­TIONAL RES­CUE Terese (Re­bekah El­maloglou) com­forts a drained Piper (Mavournee Hazel) END OF THE LINE Is Cas­sius (Joe David­son) about to face the mu­sic?
