A flicker or a flame?
Will the Coco-Ryder romance ever take off?
The relationship between Coco and Ryder has been anything but smooth sailing since they rst laid eyes on each other months ago. Every time it looked like things were about to take off and gain momentum, fate has intervened and brought it all crashing to a halt.
But what has been genuine all along is the depth of Ryder’s (Lukas Radovich) feeling for the younger of the Astoni sisters. Ryder has had a crush on Coco (Anna Cocquerel) for a long time, but it has seemed she has been hesitant all along.
One week she likes him, the next moment, well – she’s not so sure.
Ryder has been patient throughout this time, waiting for their icker to burst into ames. But in upcoming episodes of Home and Away, their slow-burning affair looks set to nally take a step forward. That is, if Coco can get a hold of her emotions and decide whether she actually wants a relationship with Ryder. Or anyone else, for that matter.
After the recent debacle of their rst official date, nothing now seems certain. Ryder was on his very best behaviour, as he was so keen, but anxiety overtook Coco and she freaked out on nding herself in a romantic setting with him. Ever since, Ryder has been lost in knowing what else he has to do to convince her of his feelings, and to prove his intentions are sincere.
When a situation is this intense, something is going to have to give. But what Coco needs to do is work out what it is about Ryder that scares her and why she keeps repeating the same pattern of running away every time she gets close.
There’s only so long Ryder will be patient with this kind of behaviour. What this situation needs now is for Coco to show her hand by expressing her true feelings, or leave this alone and allow him to move on, without her. TVS
