Romeo, played by Luke Mitchell, faces the unexpected danger after Jett develops a crush on his wife Indi.

When Indi agrees to babysit Jett (Will McDonald), the Summer Bay youngster resorts to desperate measures to ensure that he gets to spend the entire evening alone with the object of his affections.
Wanting Romeo out of the way, Jett locks him in a shed and steals his phone. However, even when the scheme comes to nothing as John and Gina block his plan to spend time with Indi, Jett fails to reveal where Romeo is.
Samara Weaving, who plays Indi, told TV Week: "He has a little crush on Indi, but goes about it the wrong way. He's trying to impress her by being a 'man' like Romeo. Indi's really nice to him - she helps him with his studies since he doesn't have many friends in the Bay and she enjoys his company. It's harmless, until it goes a bit crazy."
She continued: "It's pretty irresponsible to lock someone in a shed and then run off. But at his age, you don't really think of the repercussions. The opportunity arose and Jett took it.
"Indi is at home making dinner and doesn't know the full extent of it. She's almost annoyed at Romeo for not telling her where he is."

Desperate to make his escape from the shed, Romeo attempts to climb through a window - but ends up falling to the ground and losing consciousness.
Weaving declined to reveal whether Romeo will be okay, but warned: "Jett can't really lie his way out of this one. It gets messy."
Home and Away airs these scenes next week on Network Seven in Australia, and early March on Channel 5 in the UK.
