On this week’s episode of Home and Away in Australia, a woman who claims to be Andrew’s mother travels to Summer Bay, but is she truly who she claims to be?
In recent weeks, Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) and Justin (James Stewart) have been preoccupied with trying to piece together the past of new character Andrew (Joshua Hewson).
After leaving a message pleading for assistance in Justin’s luggage during his community service, the disturbed kid arrived in late April.
Please assist. need to eat. I occupy the residence known as the “blu letta box.”
Andrew was found to be badly emaciated when Justin spotted the teen lying on the floor of the house. Justin then transported Andrew to the hospital.
In the end, Cash located a missing person’s report, through which we discovered that Andrew Lawrence hadn’t been seen in more than ten years.
It turned out that Andrew had been residing in the home with his father, who had kidnapped him when he was just four years old from his mother, who is now known to go by the name Esther.
His father belonged to the Vita Nova doomsday cult, which was under investigation by a police taskforce. For years, Andrew’s father had kept him confined to a home with stringent restrictions on what he could do and who he could speak to.
Cash quickly discovered that Andrew’s father had passed away from a heart attack a few weeks before to Justin discovering him, leaving Andrew alone in the house without access to food or clean water.
Cash had hope that his mother was still alive even though Andrew’s father had informed him that she had passed away. But he had no way to find her because she had left her last known address.
Because Andrew believed his father would never do such a thing, Cash’s assertions were initially rejected by Andrew. However, it quickly became apparent that he had a complete existence before his kidnapping that he couldn’t remember when he went to the beach and found that he was a confident swimmer despite having previously thought he had never set foot on a beach.
Cash’s quest for information has been fruitless because the Vita Nova taskforce did not consider Andrew’s case to be urgent because he was older than 16.
Theo (Matt Evans) posted an explanation of the situation on social media in the hopes that internet sleuths may help them uncover additional information. He was inspired by the online forum that Kirby (Angelina Thomson) had created to assist Marilyn (Emily Simons) with her recent Stunning Organics issue.
Theo revealed to Cash what he had done at the conclusion of Monday’s Australian show.
I created a missing person’s page online, he said, “just to see if anyone had any information on Andrew.” Additionally, I have received messages all day.
Cash appeared to be unimpressed when Theo admitted he had made progress and possibly had a lead, but his interest was soon aroused.
“These recent messages claim to have information,”
In episodes that will run later this week, Mandy McElhinney’s character, who goes by Esther, shows up at Yabbie Creek Police Station after seeing Theo’s post.
She identifies herself as Andrew’s mother and expresses her joy at the discovery of her long-lost son by the police.
But is she actually who she claims to be? While Home and Away is keeping her true identity a secret, it seems too good to be true that Andrew’s mother would notice Theo’s message so swiftly.
When asked about the unexpected new twist, Mandy told TV Week, “It’s such a thrill to play this character.” In addition to being excited to work on such a classic show, I was excited to play this character. It has a complex arc.
Could the doomsday cult have actually sent one of its members to find Andrew as a result of the social media post?
“Justin and Leah prepare for an emotional farewell,” the synopsis for this Wednesday’s episode begins, implying that Esther would want to take Andrew home with her. However, in this week’s last episode, “Justin fears for Andrew’s safety,” it is implied that not all is as it seems.
Then, in the episode that will show in Australia on Monday, May 22, there is a shocking turn of events as “Margot torments Andrew.”
Who exactly is Margot? Could she be this strange new woman’s genuine identity?
Justin and Cash find Vita Nova on Monday as well. A recent advertisement depicts the two pulling up at an isolated location before setting off in pursuit of the hazardous cult.
Things immediately become ominous when they pull up in Justin’s ute and they see a man carrying a crossbow.
They appear to be about to put themselves in grave danger in their quest for the truth when another man approaches them.
