Noticing the growing connection between the pair, Irene (Lynne McGranger) later asks Jasmine if there is something going on between the two of them.
Jasmine is quick to insist there isn’t.
They’re simply good friends, she tells Irene.
But Irene suspects that Robbo may be more involved than he himself realises.
And it seems Irene may well be right! Soon after, Robbo approaches Jasmine at the diner and asks if he can take her out for dinner as a ‘thank you’.
‘He purely wants to thank her for her help with getting on track,’ says Robbo. ‘In his mind, there’s nothing romantic about it, but that may change.’
Meanwhile, with Irene’s words ringing in her ears, Jasmine is reluctant to say yes, but eventually agrees.
And, as the dinner gets underway at Salt, it’s clear Robbo not only loves spending time with Jasmine, but feels comfortable enough to open up to her.
‘As far as Robbo is concerned, he was either going to spend the rest of his life with Kat [Robbo’s late pregnant lover, played by Pia Miller] or in jail,’ says Jake. ‘He certainly wasn’t looking for a new romance. He’s become very guarded.’
Will Robbo come clean with Jasmine, and with himself, about his feelings?
