He­li­copter poppa!

Im­mi­nent fa­ther­hood is turn­ing Robbo into a very hands-on, over­pro­tec­tive teddy bear whose smoth­er­ing of Tori risks back­fir­ing!

TV Soap - - Home And Away -

It­took a lot of deep thought and thor­ough soul-search­ing for Robbo to agree to fa­ther his mate Tori’s baby via IVF, but now that he’s rec­on­ciled the tragic past losses of his wife and two kids, he’s ea­gerly an­tic­i­pat­ing the se­cond chance he’s been given. Forg­ing ahead with the baby plan, Robbo (Jake Ryan) has gone out his way to be by Tori’s (Penny McNamee) side through every step of the process, from sup­port­ing her through coun­selling and her hor­mone in­jec­tion reg­i­men to the fer­tilised em­bryo im­plan­ta­tion and the news of the pro­ce­dure’s suc­cess.

Overnight it’s as if the once-enig­matic and emo­tion­ally aloof Robbo has con­verted into a big, cud­dly ball of pa­ter­nal mush as he set­tles into the next phase of the preg­nancy jour­ney. In do­ing so, he’s also be­come hope­lessly hy­per-sen­si­tive to­wards the ex­pec­tant Tori, leav­ing her and Ma­son (Or­pheus Pledger) frus­trated as they try to deal with his at­ten­tions. Hav­ing grown closer to Robbo through­out the jour­ney so far, Tori loves him for be­ing so car­ing – but she also needs her own space to ad­just to the re­al­i­sa­tion that her dream of be­ing a mother is be­ing recog­nised. Should Tori grow too weary of her baby­daddy crowd­ing her, Robbo could suf­fer the con­se­quences. She could ul­ti­mately de­cide that a lit­tle healthy dis­tance between them is the best so­lu­tion to the prob­lem but, hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced so much child-re­lated heartache in the past, Robbo could take any re­jec­tion of his par­tic­i­pa­tion in his son or daugh­ter’s life to heart. As Tori and most of the Bay’s other res­i­dents, in­clud­ing his girl­friend Jas­mine (Sam Frost), know when Robbo is hurt, he is prone to over­re­act out of all pro­por­tion. When Robbo loses con­trol, the con­se­quences are of­ten deadly. Could Tori, her un­born baby, or even Jas­mine, suf­fer Robbo’s wrath if he gets his heart bro­ken here?

ROLLER­COASTER Robbo’s emo­tions are all over the place!
