She’s had her guard up ever since Robbo (Jake Ryan) suddenly reappeared in the Bay, but this week Jasmine (Sam Frost) finally makes her feelings clear to the man she still loves.

Early in the week, with abandonment issues from her childhood weighing heavily on her mind, Jasmine organises an appointment with a counsellor.
“One of the things that’s really interesting about Jasmine – and which is certainly interesting for me to play – is that the viewers don’t know much about her past,” says
“It means that she has a long way to go.
“It’s great for everyone to get to know Jasmine better and unlock a little bit more about her back-story and who she really is as a person. That’s exciting and helps us to understand Jasmine wholly.”
Meanwhile, it’s clear the young nurse is hoping that Robbo will attend the therapy session with her.
“Jasmine is ready to face the challenges in her relationship with Robbo head on,” says Sam.
But when Jasmine tries to organise a time with Robbo, he’s clearly hesitant.
“Ideally, Jasmine wants Robbo to come along to support her, and when it appears that he doesn’t want to do so, it’s just another disappointment for Jasmine,” says Sam.
“She is struggling to understand why he keeps saying ‘I’ll be there for you’ and then continually lets her down.”
After a night of soul-searching – and some stern words from Willow (Sarah Roberts) – Robbo pledges his full support to Jasmine.
Driving her to the counselling session, the gym owner is quick to reassure Jasmine he’ll support her – no matter what.
And Robbo is true to his word when he agrees to be brought into the session. But everything changes when Robbo drops a bombshell of his own on Jasmine in the counsellor’s room – one that leaves her stunned!
Indeed, after returning to the Bay, Jasmine and Robbo are still both deep in thought, with Robbo asking Jasmine for some time to himself to think things through.
When the couple eventually reconnect, Jasmine decides she’s ready to tell Robbo exactly how she feels. She wants to discuss the possibility of being a couple again. But the big question is: does Robbo still feel the same way?
