Home and Away spoilers follow from Thursday’s Australian episodes (November 24), which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away has aired a worrying new kidnap storyline ahead of the show’s Australian season finale.
Thursday’s triple bill of episodes in Australia saw new villain Jacob Cameron make a sinister return following Bree’s decision to report him for domestic abuse.
Recent episodes have seen Bree bravely break her silence by telling the police that Jacob has been violent towards her throughout their marriage.
The police acted in response by issuing Jacob with an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO), which banned him from seeing or contacting Bree.

In Thursday’s episodes, Jacob broke the terms of his AVO by secretly returning to Summer Bay and spying on Bree from afar.
Jacob also broke into Remi Carter’s home, finding evidence of the Lyrik musician’s new relationship with Bree.
In a worrying turn of events, jealous Jacob turned up at Bree’s motel room and forced his way inside. He ordered a frightened Bree to pack her things so they could leave together.
Remi realised that Jacob was back when Kirby Aramoana and Theo Poulos tipped him off.

He made his way to the motel room to check on Bree, but Jacob was able to overpower him and tied him to a chair.
As Jacob unleashed his anger over Remi and Bree’s relationship, he violently attacked Remi and forced Bree to leave against her will.
Remi was powerless to do anything as Jacob departed the motel with his terrified wife, with no clues over where they’d be going next.
Jacob’s kidnap of Bree comes as Home and Away gears up to air its 2022 season finale in Australia.
