It seems Evan hasn’t come back from the dead and is in fact another Daddo but not the same Daddo — this one is called Owen.
Technically I’m being paid to watch, but the producers would have lost me as a devout viewer if Evan came back from the dead.
This Daddo doesn’t know he has a twin brother but has miraculously turned up in Summer Bay just weeks after the death of this assumed twin brother.
It all seems very far-fetched, even for Home and Away standards.
But good news!
Ryder is very passionate about the matter and remembers that Evan told him he was adopted and wants to get to the bottom of this very confusing situation.
“I think I’d know if I was adopted,” the other Daddo says.
Ryder fills Owen in about Evan the muso, which still seems to be the only phrase people can use the describe him.
Roo is finding this encounter with Owen quite confronting and “strange”. Watching a man die and now seeing Owen has “brought up some pretty rough stuff”.
On the other hand Maz is completely over John and gets all spiritual and says this is just one of the many unexplainable forces at play in the universe.
Anyway, we do get some answers because Owen explains he wasn’t planning to grace Summer Bay with his presence and was just “moseying” around and thought it looked nice.
It comes as no surprise that Owen doesn’t leave town even after the Stewart family and co. intervention and is sticking around to explore the mysteries of the world.
“It can’t just be a coincidence,” Owen says.
He’s going to stay in a van, so he’s basically Evan with a different name.
Justin is getting more wobbly. I’m certain he is the next victim to Leah’s curse – the one where all her husband’s die.
His wobbles extend to dancing and him and Leah get in a quick, yet awkward sesh before the curse sets in so we remember all the things they won’t be able to do once he dies.
Several characters make comment on Justin’s wellbeing but the number one spot goes to Irene saying “there’s nothing worse than a bung back”. It’s very true but being dead is worse.
Justin gets to work on that really big rust job.
I’m pretty sure that’s the stuff I put on my face – but on second inspection the large container has an “F” on it, so this is not an industrial amount of serum and I can stop dreaming about bathing in it.
Justin’s wobbles and back spasms get so severe he collapses, and as he falls to the floor of the garage, he knocks over the ominous substance.
Calls from Leah and Tori go unanswered.
But in other news Jas is working at the hospital again. How they have allowed such an unstable — not to mention unreliable — person to continue to work there is beyond me, but good for her.
Also John is going well all things considered and is heading back to work at the club tomorrow.
I think he expects some kind of grand ceremony. But no one is there, so he goes into that little closet room they they call an office and feels pretty happy for himself.
