Worst Christ­mas ever!

A SIN­IS­TER FIG­URE FROM Leo’s PAST TAR­GETS Paul WITH DIS­TURB­ING THREATS THAT JEOP­AR­DISE HIS FREE­DOM AND DRIVE HIM TO DIS­TRAC­TION!

Soap World - - AUSSIE PRIMETIME -

Re­gard­less of Paul’s cur­rent an­i­mos­ity to­wards his son Leo, there’s no doubt that he loves him and al­ways has. He’ll do any­thing to pro­tect Leo from harm – as he has done in the past – so when a rather men­ac­ing pres­ence from Leo’s old life in Syd­ney shows up out of the blue in Erins­bor­ough, he doesn’t hes­i­tate to in­ter­vene. In do­ing so, Paul finds him­self in the ag­grieved party’s sin­is­ter crosshairs...

Con­tacted by De­laney Ren­shaw (Ella New­ton), who has fa­mil­ial con­nec­tions to a few un­savoury peo­ple Leo dealt with when he lived in Syd­ney, Leo (Tim Kano) is shaken by the thinly veiled threats De­laney is­sues. Rat­tled at the black­mail bid, Leo con­fides his con­cern in Paul (Ste­fan Den­nis), who’s re­minded of his own in­volve­ment in staving off the threats Leo faced from the Ren­shaw fam­ily a year ago. De­spite suc­ceed­ing in keep­ing Leo safe then, Paul’s lat­est ef­forts to pro­tect him sud­denly back­fire, earn­ing Paul a se­ri­ous new enemy in De­laney!

Con­fronting Paul on Christ­mas Eve for try­ing to dupe her, De­laney drops the bomb­shell that the Ren­shaws know all about his in­ter­ven­tion last year when he dis­pensed with their as­so­ciate Man­nix, who was stalk­ing Leo. They have proof of Paul’s ac­tions be­cause Man­nix sub­se­quently died from Paul’s harsh treat­ment! That makes Paul cul­pa­ble, and un­less he helps De­laney get what she wants, she’ll shop Paul to the cops as a cold-blooded mur­derer!

That’s just the Christ­mas Day gift that Paul doesn’t want, and as the fes­tive at­mos­phere takes hold, he and Leo strug­gle to en­joy the day. Sur­rounded by his fam­ily, Paul‘s slammed hard by the harsh re­al­ity that he could go to prison if De­laney follows through with her threats! Yep – he could end up los­ing ev­ery­thing!

As Paul’s de­meanour wors­ens, De­laney presents him with an­other sin­is­ter gift, proof of Man­nix’s fi­nal rest­ing place! Des­per­ate to know if De­laney’s telling the truth or sim­ply fool­ing him just to get at Leo, Paul speeds off to­wards the gravesite but, be­com­ing dis­tracted by his in­sid­i­ous thoughts, he loses con­trol of the car and crashes!

Ly­ing seem­ingly life­less in the wreck­age, Paul’s fate sud­denly dark­ens as it ap­pears that af­ter years of nas­ti­ness and evil mis­deeds, karma has fi­nally caught up with him in the worst pos­si­ble way!
