The Stewart Family
When Home and Away started broadcasting in 1988, it primarily revolved around the lives of the Fletcher family.
The show has been around for a long time and most of the original cast and characters have departed the show as their careers grew.
Since 2010, Alf Stewart’s family and life have been the backbone of the show.
Ryder Jackson’s Place In Summer Bay
When Ryder Jackson joined the Summer Bay community in 2017, fans of the show quickly speculated what his motives and agenda were.
In the show, his first appearance was stealing from the surf shop and being caught by VJ and Hunter.
He was then brought to Alf and decided to drop the bombshell that he was Alf’s long-lost grandson. Apparently, Ryder is the son of Quinn Jackson, Alf’s estranged daughter.
Initially, Alf and Roo didn’t believe him and it didn’t help his case when Ryder denied giving them Quinn’s number and stole money once again from Alf.
A major focus of Ryder Jackson’s stay in Summer Bay is piecing together his relationship with his family. We soon learn that Ryder ran away from boot camp to look for his grandpa while Quinn was on a cruise.
One night, Alf and Roo witnessed Ryder having an intense nightmare and Quinn assured them that he’s always had them.
Quinn spilled to Alf and Roo that Ryder’s unpredictable sleeping pattern has ruined her life. This, in turn, made Ryder storm out and steal Alf’s car – unfortunately hitting Roo and sending her to the hospital.
Eventually, things settled and Quinn agreed to let Ryder stay in Summer Bay, knowing that Alf and Roo can give Ryder the care he deserves.
