Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.
Home and Away‘s Justin Morgan and Ziggy Astoni will have their friendship put to the ultimate test in upcoming scenes, as Theo Poulos’ presence at the garage drives a wedge between the colleagues.
Ever since Leah Patterson-Baker (Ada Nicodemou)’s nephew, Theo (Matt Evans), arrived in Summer Bay, he’s been causing chaos for a number of residents. Keen to help Leah out, her partner Justin (James Stewart) has been allowing Theo to work at his garage – but the delicate situation could be about to explode.
According to TV Week, in scenes airing this week in Australia and in about a month’s time in the UK, Justin continues to keep a close eye on Theo after Theo’s dangerous burial stunt with Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich) almost ended in tragedy.

But Theo’s presence at the garage has become far more of a hindrance than a help, as he continues to be lazy and full of attitude at work. That leaves mechanic Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) frustrated.
Over at the Diner, Justin gets a surprise phone call from Leah, who previously announced that she was going abroad for a while to visit her family. In reality, Leah has actually travelled to the city to see Theo’s parents, and she’s now staying with them in the hope of mending the rift between Theo and his dad.
Unfortunately, Theo overhears the covert conversation and feels betrayed by his aunt’s actions. Theo begs Leah come home, but won’t say why he’s so keen for the situation to be left alone.

Little does Leah know that Theo recently opened up to John Palmer (Shane Withington) about his relationship with his dad Dimitri, telling him that Dimitri was physically abusive toward him when he lived with him.
The next day, Theo is frustrated over Leah’s actions. His attitude causes chaos at the garage, when he abandons his work and angrily snaps at Ziggy.
Justin soon intervenes in the situation, but Ziggy is horrified when, instead of reprimanding Theo, he offers him an apprenticeship at the garage.
Actor Matt, who plays Theo, explained of the storyline: “It’s frustrating for Ziggy because he gets the opportunity very easily. He did muck Justin and Ziggy around a lot and wasn’t 100 per cent deserving of it.”

Despite Ziggy’s objections, Justin stands by his decision and tells her in no uncertain terms that it is his business and therefore his decision.
But Ziggy isn’t giving up that easily, as she produces a stack of CVs from female applicants and points out that Theo is nowhere near as qualified for the job as these potential apprentices are.
Justin and Ziggy end up becoming embroiled in a fiery exchange, putting their friendship on the line as they argue for what they think is right.
Is Theo about to come between Justin and Ziggy in a major way?
