Despite giving in to her attacker’s ransom demand, Felicity’s ordeal is far from over. Now, he wants more: $10,000 or he’ll post the video of her sexual assault online.

In this week’s Home And Away, Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) and her partner Tane (Ethan Browne) debate what to do. They can’t come up with the money on their own – and even if they did, the blackmailer could simply ask for more.

“It’s a very long, horrible road for Flick,” Jacqui tells TV WEEK. “Her attacker does some horrific things, not least of which is blackmail.”

A worried Tane is there for Felicity…

Tane suggests they involve the police, but Flick is adamant she wants to deal with this herself and put it behind her. Formulating a new plan, they agree to ignore the message and hope it’s a bluff. But when Tane heads to work, Flick gets creative…

Next morning, she works on different angles to secure the cash. After making an appointment with the bank, she overhears Lyrik discussing a party to launch their album and jumps at the chance to host it at Salt.

But Remi (Adam Rowland) and Justin (James Stewart) want something bigger than the restaurant, putting an end to her plan. It leaves Flick with just one option: her brother Cash (Nicholas Cartwright).

…but he doesn’t realise what she’s about to do next.

Not wanting to let him know what’s been happening, Flick asks for a loan under the guise of helping Lyrik with their launch. The policeman suspects his sister is lying, but agrees.

Later at home, Cash asks girlfriend Eden (Stephanie Panozzo) about the album launch – if the band needed money, why didn’t she tell him?

A confused Eden explains they turned down Flick’s offer. It’s then that Cash realises he’s been duped. There’s clearly more to this story…

Home and Away airs Monday to Wednesday, 7pm, on Channel Seven.
