Home and Away love triangle: A confused Jasmine questions her feelings

'He doesn't know where he stands'

Jasmine has caused quite a stir since she arrived in Summer Bay – no more so than among two of the bay's most eligible bachelors: Mason and Colby.

The blonde nurse finds herself caught in a love triangle in Home And Away this week when both young men confront their feelings.

Jasmine (Sam Frost) and Colby's (Tim Franklin) relationship is in the spotlight when Irene (Lynne McGranger) notices their obvious connection.

With sparks flying, she can't help but wonder if they have unresolved feelings for each other. When asked, Jasmine assures Irene they're just friends.

"There was always an attraction with Colby, beyond just friendship," Sam, 29, tells TV WEEK. "But now that things have changed between them, Jasmine feels lucky to have him in her life."

But a close moment during Colby's therapy session echoes Irene's words. It leaves Jasmine wondering if things really are over with the police officer. Could Irene be right?

"Colby is more worried about entangling her in the dangers of what's happening in his life," Tim, 28, tells of his character's feelings towards Jasmine.

Colby (Tim Franklin) worries about bringing Jasmine in to his dangerous life.

With the search for Colby's sister consuming all his time and focus, love doesn't seem a priority.

"His whole life has been pushed in the direction of finding his sister," he explains. "If that case wasn't there, there would be a lot more room for that romantic part of his life."

It's something Jasmine understands and tries to stand by.

"She knows he's on a mission and really wants to support him," Sam says.

Meanwhile, Mason (Orpheus Pledger) has struggled to shrug off his growing crush on Jasmine.

"There's an unspoken potential there," Orpheus, 25, explains.

"It's a comfortable friendship, so there's every reason to be attracted to her. But he doesn't know where he stands."

Jasmine and Mason flirt.

Distracted by seeing her while in a beachside boxing workout with Tori (Penny McNamee), Mason cops an accidental blow to the face – and his ego.

Realising Mason's preoccupation, Tori offers some words of wisdom to her younger brother.

"She gives him some sisterly advice and tells him to go for it," Orpheus says. "So he thinks, 'Why don't I seize the moment?'"

After listening to Tori's words of encouragement, Mason decides he's going to try asking out Jasmine again and comes knocking at her door.

Tori accidentally hits her brother Mason.

Will he strike it lucky and discover Jasmine is attracted to him too?

Home and Away airs Monday to Thursday, 7pm, on Channel Seven.
