"This is what Robbo's been so scared about all along," says Jake.
"Tragedy just seems to follow him wherever he goes."
Indeed, both Tori and Robbo are shell-shocked by this latest development, with Robbo taking off from the hospital leaving his fianceé Jasmine (Sam Frost) fearing that he's once again done a runner from the Bay.
"When you run away and leave the girls high and dry like Robbo’s done in the past, you can’t blame Jas for thinking this,” says Jake.
“But Robbo doesn’t cope with things and tends to go into fight-or-flight mode. He really has gone through a huge amount in his life already."
