The group, Vita Nova, has taken vulnerable young Andrew (Joshua Hewson) into its fold.
With grave concerns for Andrew’s safety, Justin goes on a solo rescue mission to bring him home.
But when things don’t go according to plan, Justin is attacked, captured and locked up.
Back in the Bay, a distraught Leah (Ada Nicodemou) enlists the help of Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) to try to track Justin down.
Both Leah and Cash are aware of the murderous lengths Vita Nova will go to to protect its community and, as the hours pass by with no sign of Justin, Leah begins to fear the worst.
Will Justin’s failed rescue mission cost him his life?
Meanwhile, Marilyn (Emily Symons) is battling against a corrupt skincare company, Stunning Organics.
That struggle ends in an explosive climax when a mysterious box addressed to her arrives at the Diner.
For weeks, Marilyn has been receiving threats, messages and anonymous calls demanding she stop doing interviews in which she speaks out against Stunning Organics.
What the Bay residents don’t know is that the box contains a bomb.
When Marilyn is slow to collect the parcel from the Diner, the box makes its way around the Bay, ending up in the hands of several of its beloved residents – all completely unaware of the danger they are in.
When the bomb is finally activated, a countdown timer is triggered.
Surf shop owner Mali (Kyle Shilling) hears about the bomb threat and races into action.
With time running out, Mali barrels down the road, speeding after his friends, who are oblivious to the fact they have a deadly bomb on board.
Is Mali too late to save them from a terrifying fate?
The devastating blast will rock Summer Bay – and one person won’t come home.
Whose life will be hanging in the balance when the clock hits zero?
Home and Away is on Monday to Thursday at 7pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.
