This week on Home and Away, a few love triangles are forming in the aftermath of Jasmine (Sam Frost) and Bella (Courtney Miller) leaving the Bay. After spending the night together, Rose (Kirsty Marillier) and Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) are awkward around each other, and when Rose is rude to Irene (Lynne McGranger) Xander (Luke Van Os) figures out why – it must be because she has feelings for her sister’s boyfriend!
Plus, Tane (Ethan Browne) is worried about Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) as he obsesses over Bella and spends all his free time trying to get in touch with her. However, after a major lifeguard rescue earns the admiration of newcomer Naomi, will Nikau be about to get a distraction in the form of another woman?
