“As Justin’s partner, Leah takes the position that he has to make the decision for himself,” says Ada. “But it’s just an awful time for all of them.”
And this week, Justin’s condition continues to deteriorate. As the Summer Bay favourite walks up the stairs to the Diner, his back seizes up so much that he can’t move.
Justin and Ada seemingly can’t get a break, with Leah still battling post-traumatic stress following her kidnapping ordeal, and most recently being attacked again at the diner.
Indeed, alone at the Diner at the time, Leah’s worst nightmare came true when a mystery person burst into the popular eatery and pushed her to the ground.
