Home and Away airs shock shooting in latest Australian episode
Home and Away spoilers follow from Monday’s Australian episode (August 8), which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away policeman Cash Newman has been left fighting for his life in the show’s latest Australian episode.
Cash found himself caught in the crossfire as the Parata family’s troubles with a dangerous biker gang came to a head in dramatic scenes.
Recent episodes on air in Australia have seen Tane and Nikau face danger after being tracked down by the biker gang, who held a grudge over some money that Ari once stole.
Demanding repayment, newcomer Tex Wheeler and the other gang members started trying to launder money through Tane’s gym business.
Monday’s episode saw Home and Away return to Australian screens following a mid-season break for the Commonwealth Games.
The tense comeback episode saw Tane confront the gang at their hideout, wearing a wire as he secretly cooperated with the police.
Tane pushed the gang for exact details on the money laundering plan, hoping that they’d incriminate themselves.
Local cop Rose Delaney listened in from a nearby police van and was soon joined by Cash.
Tane’s efforts were interrupted when Nikau followed him to the gang’s hideout and began causing problems, angering the gang members.
When Tane’s dangerous plan started to backfire, the police swooped in to deal with the escalating situation.
In the ensuing chaos, gunshots were fired and gang leader Marty was killed, while Cash was left bleeding out on the ground after taking a bullet too.
Tuesday’s episode will see Cash get rushed to hospital for emergency treatment, but will he survive?
Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 in September.
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.45pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.
In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 and streams on 7plus.
