Marilyn reveals her most embarrassing secret on this week’s episode of Home and Away in Australia as Heather continues tormenting her.
In today’s Australian episode of Home and Away, Marilyn’s mysterious baby plot advanced further as Maz was alarmed by Heather’s purported backstory before discovering a sinister envelope.
Then, a fresh promo revealed that before Maz finally confesses her big secret, Heather (Sofia Nolan) will torture Marilyn (Emily Simons) in upcoming scenes by breaking into Summer Bay House.
fresh personality In her weeks in Summer Bay, Heather has undoubtedly left an impression. Her claim that she needed assistance to get into law school was true when she first showed up as one of Roo’s private tuition students, but it soon became clear that there was more to her story.
She left a good impression on Nikau (Kawakwa Fox-Reo), and the two started having fun without any obligations—exactly what Nik needed after his most recent breakup.
She left less of an impression on Marilyn, however, who she appeared to be very interested in. Maz has become increasingly uneasy since Heather sneakily snapped a picture of her working behind the counter at the diner and has been giving her a constant barrage of uncomfortable glances.
She recently asked Marilyn if they had met before and said, “You’re just so familiar, I can’t quite put my finger on it,” frightening Marilyn.
As she rented a van at the campground, Heather established herself in Summer Bay, but she was forced to ask Roo to fill in for her for the first few days because she had allegedly used up all of her money on tuition.
The plot advanced significantly in today’s Australian episode as it became increasingly obvious that Heather is in Summer Bay for a different reason than she initially claimed.
First of all, Nikau was perplexed as to why Heather hadn’t followed through on applying for a job at Salt; after all, she had claimed to need the money.
She and Roo then had another study session at the diner, during which it became apparent that she hadn’t been paying attention to her work. She explained that she had simply been too preoccupied trying to move and find a job, and that she had been trying not to let it get to her. It was evident to viewers that she wasn’t really interested in her studies or in working in Summer Bay despite the impending Salt offer.
She kept giving Marilyn odd looks, and when Maz made a snide remark about her lack of concentration, it was obvious that there was tension between the two of them.
Heather initially revealed to Roo that she had an affair with a married man while traveling in the outback and became pregnant. The woman was coerced into giving up the child, which the man and his wife later adopted and raised as their own.
Later, when Roo told Maz the tale in an effort to get Marilyn to stop picking on Heather, it was obvious from Marilyn’s shocked expression that the tale sounded all too familiar.
Could Heather’s story actually be Marilyn’s?
Maz later discovered an envelope with her name on it outside Summer Bay House’s front door as she was walking there.
She was shocked to see a picture of a baby inside with the note, “Guess who,” written by hand on the back when she opened it.
In the episodes that will air later this week, Marilyn deduces right away that the note must have involved Heather. She goes to confront Heather in her van, but when she opens the door, she discovers that Heather and Nikau are having a casual time, so she has to put off the argument.
How will she discover what Heather expects from her?
Talking to Yahoo Lifestyle, Emily Simons explains, “I think deep down she knows it’s really serious, and there is a reason why Heather is behaving that way, and it taps into something that happened in her past.”
A promo which aired after Monday’s episode, and which you can view in this article, shows the aftermath of the shock letter.
In her caravan, Heather can be seen sulking and clutching a small teddy bear.
Additionally, we see Marilyn sit down with Roo and grow more animated as she confides in her friend, “I’ve said it before, I’ve said it all along, something is going on with her.”
Another image from a scene that will air on Wednesday shows Heather breaking into Summer Bay House while Maz snoozes on the couch.
Then, what we assume is the following morning, she sinisterly asks Marilyn, “have a nice sleep?”
Another picture shows Heather sneaking through the Summer Bay House gardens during the day. She is obviously looking for more information about Maz.
Marilyn is informed by Roo that she is still unconvinced that the newcomer has any hidden agenda and that “from everything I’ve seen, she is a polite and friendly young woman.”
Leah, however, seems destined to replace Maz as his confidante. What could she possibly want from you, Leah enquires? “I have something to confess,” Maz explains to the woman.
We might learn one of Marilyn’s darkest secrets in this Thursday’s episode, it would seem.
One of our hypotheses, which we discussed in a previous article, is that Marilyn may have had a second child at some point while she was away from Summer Bay.
Marilyn made her Summer Bay debut in 1989 as Lance Smart’s girlfriend (Peter Vroom). Marilyn didn’t leave Summer Bay again until she left with her fiancé Phil Bryant (Vince Martin) in 1992, despite having previously taken a three-month break after rejecting Lance’s marriage proposal in 1989.
She left again in 1999 after making a return in 1995. The next time we would see her would be almost two years later. Marilyn was with two primary school age children and one in a pram when Donald met her in London in 2001 after spotting her at the book launch for “A Letter to Byron,” but she soon revealed to him that she was a childminder.
When Marilyn was living in the UK in the early to mid-2000s, did she eventually have a child, who is possibly now in their early 20s?
It’s not unusual for a recurring character on Home and Away to have a hidden child. In the past 34 years, Alf (Ray Meagher) has learned about two of his children—Quinn and Owen—while also learning that his wife Ailsa (Judy Nunn) had a daughter, Shauna (Kylie Watson), in the 1970s while she was incarcerated.
Even more recently, Irene (Lynne McGranger), a stalwart of Summer Bay, admitted that she had a long-lost child, who was later identified as Mick Jennings (Kristian Schmid), whom she had been forced to give up after being abused by her uncle in her adolescence.
Although we don’t think Heather will be a recurring character, the newcomer is expected to have a significant plot with Cash close to the year’s end.
Nicholas Cartwright first revealed Sofia’s character name as Heather in an interview with CelebTime earlier this year. He also said that “[Cash is] going to film a big storyline with her soon.”
Will the plot be connected to the unsolved question that surrounds her and Marilyn?
