ROO & ALF AT BREAKING POINT!
WHAT WAS MEANT To Be Alf’s GREAT FAMILY Reunion IS TURNING INTO The YEAR FROM HELL FOR The STEWART FAMILY, on Home And AWAY.
What was meant to be Alf’s great family reunion is turning into the year from hell for the Stewart family, on Home and Away.
The Stewart family are the cornerstone of the Summer Bay community, with the ever-loyal Alf as the patriarch the community turns to in times of need.
This year looked set to be the year that Alf (Ray Meagher) would finally have all the generations of his family all around him, now that Quinn (Lara Cox) and Ryder (Lukas Radovich) are in town.
But that wish to be close to his clan is fast turning into a nightmare, as he has all but destroyed his relationship with his beloved daughter Roo (Georgie Parker).
Alf thought he was doing the right thing by confessing to Roo that her mother Martha did not drown 30 years ago, as Roo had always been told, but is still alive.
By finally confessing the truth about this long-held lie, Alf has unleashed a number of demons from his past that he has worked overtime to hide.
As the truth is now out and demanding to be dealt with, there is nothing Alf can do about it.
That is what is about to come crashing down on Alf in upcoming episodes of Home and Away.
“Alf’s stress levels are about to skyrocket.”
Roo has fled town and is digging for the truth about her family’s troubled past. She has a lead as to where her mother could be hiding out and is determined to get to the bottom of the hidden saga about why her mother ran away from Summer Bay years ago, and why she never made contact again.
Alf knows that once Roo goes digging for the truth, she may not like all that she finds – and he may not like those details being exposed, either.
For every relationship, there are two sides of the story. What actually happened during the marriage of Alf and Martha is a secret he has done his best to keep from others.
In those early years, when he and Martha were together and Roo was just a young girl, Alf was a very different man to the one the town knows today. He was still suffering from the effects of PTSD from his time of service in the Vietnam War, and had a temper he easily – and readily – lost.
There is a whole lot of shame he has hidden away about those sad years and without Martha being around, he has never had to confront it. Until now.
Alf knows what Roo is like when her mind is made up and he’s certain she will not come back until she has found what she is looking for. He also knows that Roo is looking in all the right places to find Martha and bring her back to Summer Bay for the family to confront what went wrong all those years ago.
With Martha almost certain to return, the situation will unleash a dramatic confrontation with Alf from which he won’t be able to escape. He has been hiding from this truth for 30 years and will soon find this time is up.
Alf will also be forced to confront the damage he has done to his relationship with Roo and will wonder if he can ever repair the hurt he has caused her. For a man who has battled serious health issues in recent years, Alf’s stress levels are about to skyrocket. This is something all his friends will watch with serious concern, as they see him pushed to breaking point.
Alf (Ray Meagher) thought he was doing the best thing for Roo. Alf now has to confront his shameful past.
Roo (Georgie Parker) is shattered by the lies she has been told.
