Home and Away spoilers to follow.
Home and Away's Justin Morgan is set to suffer another shock collapse in an upcoming episode, as he continues to struggle with his painkiller addiction.
In scenes set to air this week in Australia, and in July in the UK, the character will be seen buying drugs online – unaware that the batch he purchases is dodgy.
To everyone else, it looks as if Justin (James Stewart) is finally getting his life back on track following his surfing accident. He reassures Leah (Ada Nicodemou) that he's well and truly on the mend especially, by telling her that he's got a new doctor who is assisting him in going cold turkey.
Turns out, though, that he's lying, because as soon as Leah leaves the garage, he gets the shakes and takes some of his dwindling supply of pills.
"Things are definitely getting a bit too much for Justin," James recently told TV Week. "He's using any excuse to be able to behave like a victim and get medication."
When Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) pitches up to Justin's work, pleading with him for her job back after her shock dismissal, she almost clocks him ordering drugs online. To distract her, he tells her that h fired her because she messed up professionally, which leaves her feeling deflated.
Later, his new painkillers arrive in the post and he doesn't waste any time getting his fix. Unsatisfied, he takes more... and more... which ultimately leads to Leah finding him passed out in the garage. Will he be okay?
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.
