H&A's Casey teases Casey stabbing plot

Home and Away star Lincoln Younes, who plays the part of Casey Braxton on the hit soap, has dropped hints about the upcoming stabbing storyline. Warning: Spoiler Alert!

Following weeks of torture and harassment from a fellow prison inmate, Casey has had enough of Courtney Freeman (Joshua Brennan) and his bullying ways.

When the youngest River Boy notices that Courtney is now targeting a newly-jailed Jamie Sharpe (Hugo Johnstone-Burt), he tries to defend the vulnerable inmate, while attempting to stick up for himself at the same time.

Speaking to TV Week about the upcoming plot, Younes said: "He decides the only way to tackle the situation is to go on the offensive, so he publicly embarrasses Courtney.

"Casey knows, with a group of guys behind him, Courtney is a real threat. But if he can single him out, there might be a chance of Casey coming out on top, or of the rest of the prison losing respect for Courtney if he relies on his goons. Either way, there are benefits to confronting Courtney one on one."

However, Casey quickly learns that his Courtney won't be backing down easily, adding: "Casey hears a fight start up and goes to see what's happening. Suddenly, he hears Jamie scream out and realises that the fight is merely a diversion for Courtney to beat up Jamie.

"He runs to Jamie's aid and, during the scuffle, Courtney pulls out a knife and stabs the young River Boy.

"There's a realisation he's mortal. He's not Superman and there are very real repercussions to his actions."
