9:00pm – Wednesday, June 6 on ABC1
With so much going on, Roo (Alison Bell) and EJ (Celia Pacquola) have a confession session that leads to some startling revelations regarding Marcus (Damon Herriman), EJ’s tryst and the bile-inducing secret EJ has been guarding involving Jan (Deborah Kennedy).
Roo again tries to mend bridges with Charlie (Abe Forsythe) but his condition has worsened and he has slipped into a coma. Jan insists Roo leave them alone – she has done more than enough, has caused more than enough pain to Charlie.
Marcus comes to a disturbing realisation about Roo – he is in love with her. He’s prepared to sacrifice his gift by having sex with her. But there’s a catch. Roo must leave Charlie and promise to be with Marcus permanently. He knows they have a connection, it was there when they kissed – she can learn to love him.
Roo grapples with her conscience. There is no way she could ever love Marcus, no way she could ever stop loving Charlie. Is she able to lie to Marcus when he’s at his most vulnerable? To potentially steal what’s most precious to him by cancelling out his healing gift? Ultimately she decides she can and will – all for Charlie. Feeling wretched, Roo begins with proceedings and when Charlie makes a miraculous recovery, it becomes clear that the deed has been done. But the impact on Roo and Marcus is far from what anyone could have predicted.
