Fans can expect several shocking storylines to unfold this week on Home and Away, as Chloe (Sam Barrett) does something that will change her life forever, Ryder (Lukas Radovich) and Theo’s (Matt Evans) pranks go too far, and Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) learns a terrible truth when Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) shows her files about her father’s death.
Chloe has been getting closer to Matthew (James Sweeny), forcing Mia (Anna Samson) to reveal the truth about why she despises him so much.

Mia tries to interfere, but as Matthew grabs her mother, Chloe takes action to stop him, which sets in motion a chain of events that will change Mia’s life forever.
Ryder and Theo, on the other hand, are planning a video prank unlike any other. They appear to be completely clueless to the fact that they are about to bury Ryder six feet underground in his own coffin for five hours. Theo leaves for lunch after Ryder is in the box, but Ryder is enraged and tells him to return. Theo slips down a ravine on his way through and becomes unconscious — will he be able to wake up in time to free Ryder from his coffin?
Here’s what’s on the horizon for Home and Away starting Monday, February 28.
Felicity is confronted with the hard reality of her father’s death
While Cash comes to their hometown for the memorial, Felicity has been dealing with her father’s death on a yearly basis. She initially intended to leave for a bit, but she ultimately decides to stay and try to reconnect with her brother. When Cash arrives, though, he informs Jasmine that he has an idea that will convince Felicity to believe him when it comes to the cause of their father’s death. As a result, she may grow to despise him indefinitely. After some deliberation, he decides to text Felicity. When she approaches him, he informs her that he has their father’s file. He takes her to a seat and instructs her to read the autopsy report. Felicity begins reading through with trepidation.
And it’s evident that the information is too much for her to bear. Grief overwhelms her once more, and she flees, leaving Cash to wonder if he’s made the biggest mistake of his life.
