Home and Away

Home And Away spoiler: Jasmine’s pregnancy trauma threatens to push the widow over the edge

It’s one tragedy after another for Jasmine.

By TV Week team
Summer Bay is abuzz this week when Jasmine announces she's pregnant with Robbo's child.
But in one crushing moment, her world will come tumbling down.
In Home And Away, Jasmine (Sam Frost) excitedly prepares for her new chapter as a mum – until her own mother-in-law arrives to fuss over the baby that's on the way.
In an emotional reunion, Wendy (Amanda Muggleton) embraces both Jasmine and Tori (Penny McNamee). She's thrilled that Robbo's (Jake Ryan) memory will live on in his two children.

However, she then insists on being present at Jasmine's ultrasound. A bit put out, but understanding, Jasmine obliges. Tori, however, is concerned about Jasmine telling more people so early on in her pregnancy.
She knows the pain of enduring a miscarriage herself and wants her friend to exercise restraint.
"Jasmine's enthusiasm and excitement about the pregnancy has made Tori a little concerned, because it's still the early stages of the pregnancy and Tori just wants the best for her," Sam, 30, tells TV WEEK.
"Tori worries about how overexcited Jasmine is – and maybe she's overcautious since she's been through a miscarriage herself."
At the hospital, the three women discuss birth plans and bond over their offspring.
But their sweet moment of togetherness comes crashing down when the ultrasound technician can't seem to detect a heartbeat.
In emotional scenes, Jasmine is told some unexpected news about her pregnancy.
"Jasmine's world crumbles," Sam explains.
"It's another loss for her. This pregnancy was the last glimmer of hope she had of keeping Robbo alive. The pregnancy was the light for Jasmine during a dark time."

While Tori comforts her grieving friend, Wendy, hurt and disappointed, isn't as sympathetic. She accuses Jasmine of betraying Robbo's memory and lashes out with some harsh words.
Stung and humiliated, Jasmine flees the hospital.
As time ticks by, Tori begins to worry. She chases after Jasmine, but has no luck finding her.
Tori is well aware this setback is a cruel blow for Jasmine and could have huge ramifications for her mental health.

Deciding to take another lap of the beach, she finally spots a lone figure.
The nurse is in the shallows, walking into the ocean fully clothed.
Her grief has consumed her to the point that she wants to escape. She will do anything to forget…
"Jasmine has to deal with not only grieving the loss of her baby and the future she thought she was going to have, but also grieving Robbo all over again," Sam says.
"That hits her incredibly hard."
Tori races down to the sand, reaching her in the nick of time.
Pulling her from the surf, she holds her anguished friend tightly as her emotions come pouring out.
Poor Jasmine!
