Home and Away spoilers follow for Australian and UK viewers.
Home and Away's newest arrival Theo Poulos has already made quite an impression on Summer Bay since his arrival earlier this month, having first been seen being pulled over for speeding by police officer Cash Newman.
After Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) brought Theo (Matt Evans) back to the Bay, it was revealed that Theo actually has a surprise connection in town, as he was greeted by his aunt Leah Patterson-Baker (Ada Nicodemou). After Theo explained that his dad – Leah's brother – had kicked him out of the house, Leah decided to take Theo in, in an attempt to support him.
However, Leah's partner Justin Morgan (James Stewart) has been suspicious of the newcomer and the danger that he could pose, particularly as Theo was recently beaten up by victims of a scam he was involved in before arriving in the Bay.
TV Week reports that, in scenes that will air this week in Australia, Justin will finally agree to give Theo a chance, but he may live to regret it.
With Theo now crashing at Leah's, he needs to find a new way to make a living. Justin isn't at all keen on the idea of offering Theo a position at his garage, but for Leah's sake he agrees to give her nephew a shot at working for him.
However, Theo's first day doesn't exactly go smoothly as he turns up late to the garage. After Leah brings the pair lunch, Theo claims that he suddenly has a migraine and needs to leave early, leaving Justin short of help.
"He's worried about giving Theo a job at the garage because he doesn't know if he can trust him," actor James, who plays Justin, told TV Week. "There's something suspicious about him."
Will Justin's fears over Theo's continued presence prove to be well-founded?
Newcomer Theo, who hasn't yet made his debut on UK screens, is played by actor and musician Matt Evans, who competed on Australia's The Voice last year.
Home and Away airs these scenes this week on Channel 7 in Australia and in a few weeks' time on Channel 5 in the UK.
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
