Robbo mystery solved? Home and Away
Is Robbo was It could be that the hunk who Ryan once a policeman, Reveals Jake
Chef, waiter, driver... since coming to Summer Bay, mystery man Robbo has had a crack at several jobs in the hope that it will help wake up his stalled memory. ‘Nothing’s proved successful but when he rescues Kat Chapman from being held hostage, Robbo shows the kind of skills which, Kat reckons, he could only have picked up as a cop,’ says Jake Ryan, who plays Robbo. And there’s a growing attraction between him and Kat!
Why is Kat kidnapped?
She hears that Brody Morgan has skipped bail and is holed up in a hotel. On her way to the police station, where she’s taking Robbo for accidentally crashing into her police car, she decides to call in at the hotel. Unknown to her, drug dealer Zannis is holding Brody, and Ziggy Astoni, hostage in one of the rooms. As soon as Zannis lets her in, she’s knocked out by one of his henchmen. Robbo realises something’s wrong when another thug emerges, yet Kat is nowhere to be seen.
What does Robbo do?
When Zannis and some of his cronies appear outside with Brody and Ziggy in tow, and walk towards a getaway car, they are intercepted by Robbo, who takes out two of the thugs. He then finds himself squaring up to Zannis, who has a gun. Kat has regained consciousness and walks from the room into the firing line, but Robbo very skilfully and quickly disarms Zannis. Kat, Brody and Ziggy are safe and it’s all down to Robbo.
So Kat then wonders if he was a cop?
Yes. She figures he must have had specialist training for him to have handled himself in the way he did.
What happens next?
Robbo and Kat end up having a drink together, much to Ash’s disgust. She thanks him for saving her and they agree to be friends, as she clearly feels she can trust him again. After a couple of drinks, Robbo and Kat are getting on really well. Kat reveals that she wants to find out what his history is and Robbo asks her what would she like it to be? There’s real chemistry between them.
Does one thing lead to another?
Not at this stage, but when Kat sees a shirtless Robbo at the caravan park the next morning, the attraction is definitely still there. Later, having finally finished with Ash because it’s just not working out, she and Robbo have another drink. This time, they end up in each others’ arms. You’ll have to wait to see if they stay that way!
