EXCLUSIVE: Home and Away's Alex asks Willow to leave Summer Bay

Is it time to say farewell?

By TV Week team
Willow is caught between her grief and the pressure to keep the gym afloat by herself. And this week, she's offered a fresh start to leave it all behind.
At the gym, Willow (Sarah Roberts) vents to Alex (Zoë Ventoura) about her workload. Both Robbo (Jake Ryan) and Mason (Orpheus Pledger) were involved in running the business and she wants to honour their memory, but she's struggling to juggle it all.

Alex tries to soothe her girlfriend's worries, but is interrupted by a phone call. The doctor is surprised to learn she's being offered a job in Queensland.
The next day, Alex finds Willow to tell her the big news – but to her surprise, Willow tells her to reject the offer.
Their life is in Summer Bay and she's made a commitment to look after the gym.
