This week in Summer Bay, John talks to Jett, while Brax is approached by Sergeant Emerson.
John is sleeping on the couch when Xavier arrives home. He quickly makes an excuse to leave the house, struggling to cope in front of the boys. Xavier tries to get Jett to talk about his feelings, but Jett is so upset and embarrassed to be crying in front of Xavier, because Gina wasn't even his mum. Jett worries that he isn't going to be able to stay with John now that Gina is gone.
Meanwhile, John talks to Jett because Alf asks him to. He tells him that he has no answers about adoption, because he honestly doesn't know what DOCS are going to do, but he is going to fight for it.
Elsewhere, Tamara is angry with Casey as he has chosen not to attend the funeral because Indi needs him at work. When Tamara goes to find Casey at the gym, she watches as Sid tries to encourage Indi to go up to the wake. It's clear that the situation is tearing Indi apart after losing Romeo, and Tamara finally comprehends why Casey was so adamant about staying with her.
After the wake is over Brax is having a quiet drink when he is approached by Sergeant Emerson who asks him about his relationship with Erica Sharp because they need to speak to her at the station. This leaves Brax wondering if what she’s been hiding is more serious than he thought.
Later in the week, everyone is planning Spencer’s birthday, not knowing that Spencer’s real present will be his ‘first time’ with Maddy.
