Home and Away spoilers follow from Wednesday’s Australian episode (July 27), which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away has finally provided an on-screen explanation for why Jasmine Delaney won’t be returning to Summer Bay.
The popular character made an abrupt departure a few weeks ago, rushing off to help the family of her late husband Robbo Shaw. There were no plans for Jasmine to return, as Sam Frost – who plays her – has left the show permanently.
Over the past few weeks, Jasmine’s loved ones in the Bay have optimistically spoken about how her departure would only be temporary.
However, in Wednesday’s episode on Channel 7 in Australia, Jasmine’s partner Cash Newman finally discovered that she wouldn’t be back.
Cash was confused this week when he asked Jasmine to come back to the Bay and she failed to show up, ruining his plans for a romantic proposal.
When Jasmine and the Shaw family failed to answer calls from Cash, he became worried and reported her as a missing person.
In Home and Away’s latest episode, Cash was upset as he heard back from the police that Jasmine is fine.
Unfortunately, Jasmine had decided not to return and left it to the police to break the news to Cash.
Cash told Irene Roberts: “I put in a request for a welfare check at the farm and when the local coppers got there, Jasmine and her in-laws were there. Jasmine’s decided to stay there.
“She didn’t want to talk to me – she asked the cops to pass the message on. Apparently she sends her love and apologies – and her hope that we will understand.”
Cash quickly blamed himself for Jasmine’s decision, fearing that he’d put her off by pressuring her to return home earlier than planned.
Irene then questioned whether Jasmine’s long-lost siblings Xander and Rose, who recently moved to the Bay to be with her, knew about her decision.
Cash vowed to fill them in, explaining: “I don’t think they know anything about it. There is no way I’m letting them find out over a phone call.
“They have moved their whole lives here for nothing, Irene. How are they supposed to deal with that?”
Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 in September.
