Home and Away's Christian struggles after patient dies

·2-min read

Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Home and Away's Christian Green is left with serious regrets on UK screens next week after his patient Rachel Young dies in a freak accident.

The local doctor has spent weeks devoting all of his time to Rachel's care after he saved her life following a skydiving accident.

As Christian (Ditch Davey) happened to be at the airfield when Rachel needed his help, he has convinced himself that he was destined to be there.

Clinging onto this belief, Christian refused to let anyone else treat Rachel (Marny Kennedy) during her subsequent recovery period at the hospital and even postponed his wedding to Tori Morgan.

In next week's episodes on Channel 5, Christian shares some final moments with Rachel ahead of her being discharged from hospital.

Christian takes the head brace off Rachel and wishes her well for the future.

As Rachel leaves the hospital, she goes down to the ocean to have one last look before she heads off out of town.

Rachel is then ready to move on, but in a terrible turn of events, gets hit by a car in a nasty accident on the road.

When Rachel is re-admitted to Northern Districts Hospital, Christian tries once again to save her life. This time, however, there is no way of helping Rachel and Tori (Penny McNamee) is forced to step in to call a time of death.

The tragedy sends Christian into turmoil as it blows apart his theories about fate and destiny playing a role in his recent connection to Rachel.

In a sudden change of outlook, Christian now regrets driving a wedge between him and Tori with his behaviour and starts trying his best to make amends with her again.

It's clear that Christian wants things to go back to the way they were before, but Tori struggles with this after being sidelined for so long. Will she give him another chance?

Home and Away airs these scenes on Monday, August 9 and Tuesday, August 10 at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5. Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
