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…
