Home and Away spoiler: Tori’s reunion with baby Grace takes a distressing turn

“That’s not my baby!”

By Maddison Hockey
Tori waking from her coma in Home And Away last week was the miracle we'd been praying for.
Now, as her family gather by the doctor's bedside, there's one tiny member yet to meet Tori (Penny McNamee) properly: her daughter Grace.
But as Tori is reunited with Grace, what should be a joyous moment takes a distressing turn when the new mum claims Grace isn't her baby!
Tori may be conscious, but whether she'll make a full recovery isn't certain. When she struggles to lift her left arm and can't recall giving birth, her brother Justin (James Stewart) panics. Alex (Zoë Ventoura) and Mason (Orpheus Pledger) urge him to remain calm while the hospital runs tests.
As Tori continues to shake off the effects of her coma, she slowly feels more like herself and before long asks to see little Grace.
"She remembers she's had a baby," Penny, 36, tells TV WEEK. "But when they bring her in, that joy you're expecting her to feel, and she's expecting to feel, quickly turns to despair."

Robbo (Jake Ryan) brings Grace to Tori, but as she cradles the baby, she becomes agitated. She claims the child isn't hers and demands Justin take the infant away.
Penny, 36, tells TV WEEK why Tori is so distressed.
"She's expecting to see this little newborn, but Grace is six weeks old by then," she explains.
Robbo tries his best to convince Tori that Grace is her daughter, but she won't hear of it.

Meanwhile, Jasmine (Sam Frost) is struggling to let go of Grace and their plans to move to the farm for a fresh start as a family.
She's bonded with the baby and saddened by the idea of Tori taking her into her care.
Will Jasmine be able to let go?
Home And Away airs Monday to Thursday, 7pm, on Channel Seven.
