the sly Sug­den has some ex­plain­ing to do when re­becca makes a shock dis­cov­ery…

Story So far

Robert Sug­den’s plans to fleece the Whites and land Home Farm have seen the sneaky Sug­den back to his wicked worst.

Hir­ing ac­tress Kath to play an in­vestor was clever, and set­ting up Rug Tree Bonds (an ana­gram of Robert Sug­den) as a false com­pany was ge­nius. Then came the best bit: get­ting Lawrence White on side by con­vinc­ing him they were hav­ing an af­fair. It was cruel but brilliant.

Ruth­less Robert slowly ma­noeu­vred him­self into a po­si­tion to pounce, with only Lach­lan White wary and sus­pi­cious of his in­ten­tions.

But then Re­becca White went into labour and baby Seb came along and, sud­denly, Robert was show­ing a more hu­man face. It seemed love for his young son was putting doubts in his mind about the po­ten­tial im­pact of his be­hav­iour…

this fort­night

Aaron Din­gle no­tices the change in Robert and he’s im­pressed to see that his ex-part­ner ap­pears to be step­ping up to the plate to be a fa­ther to his baby son. And we’re guess­ing it’s those resur­fac­ing feel­ings that prompt Aaron to ex­pose Lach­lan’s loopy be­hav­iour (see story right).

Aaron de­fend­ing Robert? Could it be the start of that Xmas re­union we’ve heard about (see page 5)?

But Robert soon has more press­ing mat­ters to con­sider.

‘Re­becca drops a bomb­shell when she spots some­thing and it catches Robert to­tally off-guard,’ says our source.

We can’t re­veal what it is that Re­becca sees, but Robert pan­ics as he fears one of his many se­crets is about to be ex­posed.

But which one? Is it his ‘af­fair’ with Lawrence? His plans to empty the White cof­fers and se­cure Home Farm? Or some­thing else?

For­tu­nately for Robert, it’s at that mo­ment Chrissie White en­ters and an­nounces Lach­lan may have killed him­self (more on that, right), which de­flects at­ten­tion from Re­becca’s dis­cov­ery.

So Robert’s off the hook. But for how long?

What next?

New mum Re­becca isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer, and she may be wor­ried about Lach­lan and Chrissie… but it can only be a mat­ter of time be­fore she re­mem­bers to ask ques­tions about what she’s seen.

We know what­ever she spot­ted wor­ried Robert. Could his whole scam come crash­ing down? We’re told ‘Re­becca makes a confession’ and ‘Lawrence faces a shock­ing truth’ later in the fort­night. Have they busted Robert’s scheme, and could more be­trayal prompt an al­ready stressed Chrissie to do some­thing reck­less?

Ac­tress Louise Mar­wood hints that Robert’s sneaky ac­tions ‘could send her over the edge’ and ‘she’s ca­pa­ble of any­thing!’

Which makes us worry that the Xmas re­union be­tween Robert and Aaron could be quickly de­railed by a dis­traught Chrissie who wants to kill Robert!
