After a long feud with Alf Stewart, Theo Poulos of Home and Away now has a criminal record.
The troublemaker was forced to face the consequences of stealing the Polaris on the beach and taking it for a joyride in his most recent narrative.
Despite the fact that the event occurred weeks ago, Alf (Ray Meagher) reported Theo to the police in recent episodes on Australian television.
Alf did so out of spite, blaming Theo (Matt Evans) for his grandson Ryder Jackson being buried alive and stuck underground.
Theo was nervously heading to court to hear his fate on Thursday’s show on Channel 7 (February 24).
Theo later came to the Diner and announced that he would not be going to jail since he had received a community service sentence.
Despite his miraculous escape, Theo was still enraged at Alf for reporting him in the first place and putting him on the wrong side of the law. He accused Alf of behaving in a guilty manner.
“Everyone knows this isn’t about me or the Polaris,” Theo raged in a public brawl at the Diner. It’s all about you. You blamed me because you weren’t there for your grandson and were seeking for someone else to blame.
“There’s no way you’d accept any of this was your responsibility, right?”
Surprisingly, the altercation gave Alf pause for thinking as he considered the strain Ryder (Lukas Radovich) was under to repay his debts, which prompted him to participate in the dangerous video challenges in the first place.
When Alf later paid Theo a visit at the Morgan mansion to apologise for his harsh treatment, Theo was taken aback.
Alf conceded, offering to put the event behind them: “You were absolutely correct. I betrayed Ryder, and I blamed you. I doubt you’re ready to forgive and forget, but please accept my apologies for how I’ve treated you.”
Can Theo truly settle into life in Summer Bay now that the peace has been restored?
In April, viewers of Home and Away in the United Kingdom will be able to see these moments on Channel 5.
