Jai Simmons, Dean Thompson’s son, has returned to Home and Away for another guest appearance.
In Tuesday’s episode on Channel 7 in Australia, River Jarvis reprised his role as Jai, which featured touching scenes for the youngster’s grandmother Karen (Georgia Adamson).
Karen returned to Summer Bay in recent episodes in Australia to reassure Dean (Patrick O’Connor) that she is fine after going missing for a short time.
Karen’s reappearance made Dean nervous at first because he hadn’t told her about Jai’s existence. Karen forced his hand when she discovered a photograph of Jai that he’d tried to hide.
Karen struggled after Dean’s confession about why he didn’t tell her about his son in the most recent episode of Home and Away.
Amber, Jai’s mother, has made it clear that she does not want Karen to have any involvement with the child. Amber imposed this strict condition several months ago because she doesn’t trust Karen after her troubled past.
Because Dean felt sorry for Karen and believed she deserved a second chance, he took matters into his own hands and arranged for Jai to visit the Bay.
Dean let Karen watch from afar as he played with Jai on the beach – it was the first time she’d seen her grandson in person.
He soon took it a step further by allowing Karen to participate. Rather than reveal her true identity, she introduced herself as John Palmer’s (Shane Withington) girlfriend.
Later, Dean told Karen that his life is going well and that she should start organizing hers instead.
Finding out why Karen is so apprehensive about her new boyfriend Brett proposing to her was at the top of Dean’s priority list.
“What’s wrong with him?” Dean demanded. He obviously cares about you, and I can tell he’s getting under your skin.
“What are you running from if this guy makes you so happy?”
In March, Home and Away fans in the United Kingdom will be able to see these scenes on Channel 5.
