Hor­ror smash!

Schem­ing Robert drugs Lawrence, who then crashes his car at the Home Farm Zom­bie Run…

TV Times - - Soaps -

In a deliri­ous state, Lawrence heads off to the car…

Now that he’s stopped putting all his en­er­gies into win­ning Aaron back, Robert has turned bad again, and de­cided that Home Farm is there for the tak­ing. Heaven knows how he plans to nab the es­tate from the Whites, but it starts with him drug­ging poor Lawrence, who has only just re­cov­ered from an aneurysm.

Robert has man­aged to get his feet back un­der the ta­ble at the ‘big house’ by help­ing out Re­becca in Lawrence’s ab­sence. Now he’s there, how­ever, he wants more, and is an­noyed that Lawrence has dis­charged him­self from hos­pi­tal.

Not to be de­feated, he gets sleep­ing pills for insomnia from the GP, which he crushes up and adds to Lawrence’s brandy. Lawrence shouldn’t be drink­ing, but he’s not one to re­sist a tip­ple.

Re­becca is wor­ried about her dad’s ill health and de­cides to can­cel a Zom­bie Run event in the woods at Home Farm.

But Lach­lan over­rules her and in­sists that it go ahead. ‘Lach­lan is run­ning the

event and wants to prove him­self,’ says John Bowe, who plays Lawrence. ‘Mean­while, Lawrence is in a gen­eral state of self-pity, as you would be if you had an aneurysm and your part­ner had left you.

Af­ter drink­ing his brandy, he falls asleep and wakes up feel­ing groggy and hal­lu­ci­nat­ing. He can hear scream­ing and mu­sic com­ing from out­side and, in a deliri­ous state, drives around the es­tate to find out what’s go­ing on.’

But he’s in no fit state to drive as he gets be­hind the wheel in his py­ja­mas and bare feet, and it’s not long be­fore his ve­hi­cle is hurtling to­wards Belle, Lach­lan and Vic­to­ria. Could Robert’s ac­tions have in­ad­ver­tently caused the death of his own sis­ter?

Back at the scrap­yard, Aaron finds one of Robert’s pills and guesses he is up to some­thing.

Will he work out that his ex is re­spon­si­ble for Lawrence’s crash?
