Home and Away fans were left in shock on Monday night when fan favourite Robbo (Jake Ryan) tragically met his end during a dramatic movie-length premiere.
Following the untimely death of Mason Morgan (Orpheus Pledger) in the season finale's deadly hospital siege, Robbo was forced to face off against traitor and dirty federal police officer Scott (Trent Baines).
After holding Robbo at gunpoint on a cliff's edge, Scott appears to have a change of heart and the pair drive towards the hospital where Robbo's loved ones are still being held hostage.
However, at the eleventh hour, Scott decides to run the car they're travelling in off the road, tragically killing Robbo in the process.
Taking to his Instagram following the episode's airing, actor Jake Ryan bid farewell to the show where he spent three years and shared a collage of photos from behind the scenes of his time on the show.
"Wow, what a ride the last 2.5 yrs have been. So many good memories," the 36-year-old penned.
"So much love to my Home and Away fam. Miss and love the lot of you. That's for such a fun experience. Cast and crew...amazing humans. Thanks for putting up with me. Fans and supporters, you are the most loyal, dedicated fans on earth. Thanks for all the love and support. Robbo&jaz4eva. Thanks legends. Peace out #R.i.pRobbo."

Sam Frost, who plays Jake's on-screen wife Jasmine, also took to her Instagram to share that she and Jake had gotten in touch immediately after the actor's final episode.
"Post show FaceTime. So incredibly proud of my Jakey Babe".
Co-star Tim Franklin, who plays cop Colby Thorne and shared many scenes with Jake, uploaded several photos of himself with Jake, captioning one post "Miss you on set mate".
While he may no longer be appearing in Summer Bay, Jake has been pretty busy in his own right.
In October, Jake's girlfriend Alice Quiddington gave birth to the couple's first child, a son they named Wolf William Ryan.
