Home and Away

Home and Away's beloved Jasmine turns a new leaf away from Summer Bay ... but it might not last for long

Jasmine gets a breath of fresh air, then her old life comes calling.

Beloved Home and Away character Jasmine has been through a tumultuous time of late.
But when she begins a new chapter on the Shaw family farm, it looks like a fresh start away from The Bay might be the perfect opportunity to evaluate what she wants.
But it may be hard to forget her past when Irene and Colby make a surprise visit.
At Robbo's (Jake Ryan) family home, Jasmine (Sam Frost) is earning her keep by helping her former in-laws, Wendy (Amanda Muggleton) and Ian (Frankie J Holden).
But they can sense there's something she's not dealing with.
While out in the fields, Wendy asks after baby Grace and Tori (Penny McNamee), but Jasmine changes the topic.

Meanwhile, in Summer Bay, Irene (Lynne McGranger) grows concerned when her calls to Jasmine aren't answered and go straight to her voicemail.
Cop Colby (Tim Franklin) proposes they visit the farm and get her to come home.
But although Tori knows the Bay is the best place for Jasmine to get better, the thought of her return makes her nervous and frightened.

"When Tori heard that Jasmine plans to leave the Bay, she blamed herself," Penny, 37, tells TV WEEK.
"She supports the mission to try to convince her to return to Summer Bay. She wants to help her through this, but she knows she can't be the one to do it."
Unfortunately, Irene and Colby's visit proves far from welcome. While Amanda and Ian are thrilled to see them, an angry Jasmine insists they leave: this is her home now – permanently.
Can Irene and Colby get through to her?
