While grief has gripped the Morgan family in the wake of Mason and Robbo’s untimely deaths, the trauma isn’t over for Justin, who continues to search for his missing girlfriend, Leah.

While the Summer Bay locals were occupied with the hostage crisis, Leah (Ada Nicodemou) disappeared without a trace. In three weeks, she’s made no phone calls to Justin (James Stewart), no visits… nothing to indicate she’s safe.

This week, Maggie (Kestie Morassi) and Roo (Georgie Parker) approach Colby (Tim Franklin) for help. The policeman tries to retrace Leah’s steps, starting with her blog. Roo dismisses the idea, claiming Leah shut it down because she found the internet so toxic. However, the trio are taken aback to find the site is still active – and a post has been uploaded that day.

Is it Leah who’s posting the comments or is someone else doing it?

The next day, Justin crosses paths with Colby, who tells him about Leah’s blog. The comments on it are misogynistic and cruel towards women. Justin knows this isn’t coming from Leah, but whoever is writing them must know where she is.

Desperate to find her, Justin begins to write a reply online, but Colby and Tori (Penny McNamee) urge him to stop. They don’t want anything to ruin their chances of getting her home safely.

“Tori has to stop Justin from doing anything rash,” Penny, 36, tells TV WEEK. “She’s worried for him and for her friend, but she has to stop her brother from taking the law into his own hands.”

Fed up, Justin heads to the garage to blow off some steam. Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) walks in later to find him struggling to remove a spark plug from a car. In her effort to help, however, the tools slip from Justin’s grasp and slices his hand open. The mechanic cries out in pain, before slumping to the floor in tears.

As Ziggy bandages his hand, a downcast Justin consders all he has lost in the past 12 months… and Leah could be next.

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