Following the reveal that Ava is Theo’s covert stalker, there are further tensions between Justin and Leah in scenes that will broadcast this week in Down Under.
When Theo decides to move in with fiancée Kirby, Ava becomes even more irate.
In an interview with Australia’s TV Week magazine, Ava actress Annabel Wolfe gave a preview of what to anticipate, saying: “The stakes are raised dramatically as soon as her dad found out [about her obsession with Theo].
Ava has trouble understanding what it means to love or be loved, as well as problems with abandonment and trust. This is where her initial aloofness and defensiveness stem from; at her very core, she just wants her dad to love her.
And it appears that she will get her wish, as Justin attempts to spend time with his daughter.
The issue is that Leah believes Ava is acting, and she is growing irritated that Justin, who feels bad for being away from her for so long, can’t see it.
She manages to make her point, though, when Roo shows her some “sultry” images of Ava donning Theo’s shirts.
Leah gives Justin an ultimatum: unless he resolves the situation with Ava, she won’t be living with him.
Leah has already packed her bags to go and remain at Roo’s, despite his attempts to persuade her to stay.
Will this cause the family to fall apart or will they manage to survive?
