Spoilers for Home and Away follow the Australian episodes on Thursday (November 24), which some UK viewers prefer to avoid.
Home and Away has aired a worrying new kidnapping story ahead of the finale of the show’s Australian season.
Thursday’s triple listing of episodes in Australia saw new villain Jacob Cameron make a sinister return following Bree’s decision to sue him for domestic abuse.
Recent episodes have seen Bree bravely breaking her silence by telling police that Jacob has been violent towards her during their marriage.
Police acted in response by issuing Jacob an Arrested Violence Order (AVO), which prohibited 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 house and found evidence of the musician Lyrik’s new relationship with Bree.
In a troubling turn of events, the jealous Jacob showed up at Bree’s motel room and forced his way inside. He ordered a frightened Bree to pack up her things so they could leave together.
Remi realized that Jacob had returned when Kirby Aramoana and Theo Poulos tipped him off.

He went to the motel room to check on Bree, but Jacob was able to overpower him and tied him to a chair.
When Jacob unleashed his anger on Remi and Bree’s relationship, he violently attacked Remi and forced Bree to leave against her will.
Remi was helpless as Jacob left the motel with his terrified wife, with no clue as to where they would go next.
Jacob’s kidnapping of Bree comes as Home and Away prepares to broadcast its 2022 season finale in Australia.
