Arriving at their secluded cabin in the woods, the group are being watched by a stranger who followed them from the city.
Settling into their new country digs, Robbo (Jake Ryan) busies himself by gathering firewood. While out in the woods, some wiring catches Robbo’s eye, and while it puzzles him, he carries on collecting wood – nonethe wiser that an explosive device has been planted nearby.
Kat (Pia Miller) and Robbo try their hand at canoeing, as Justin (James Stewart) and Scarlett (Tania Nolan) watch and kick back with a beer. Scarlett still has her ex-husband Caleb (Josh McConville) on her mind, but with things going so smoothly with her and Justin, her ex is starting to become a distant memory.
As day turns to night, the group enjoy the warmth of the fire, sharing stories and declaring their getaway a success. But have they spoken too soon? They still have no idea about the explosive device.
‘Robbo senses that something is off, but no-one is aware that they are being watched,’ Tania explains. ‘They’re relishing in this time alone. For Scarlett in particular, it’s a chance to escape from her reality.
Will the Bay favourites survive the blast?
