Leah and Zac’s marriage in Home and Away 2017 is hitting rock bottom.
This week in Home and Away 2017, Leah (Ada Nicodemou) will break down in front of her best friend Irene (Lynne McGranger) after husband Zac (Charlie Clausen) tells her the truth. After weeks of lying to her, Zac will admit to his wife that he has been cheating on her with his novel editor Sam (Cheree Cassidy).
In return, Leah tells Zac that she can’t forgive him. She will also tell Zac to live with Sam instead.
Sam has been trying to seduce Zac for months now. She and the teacher finally slept together after Billie’s (Tessa De Josselin) tragic death that leaves Zac’s devastated. Leah already confronted Sam about her suspicion and warned her to stay away from her husband. Sam, however, told her that it is Zac that needs to stay away.
Leah will further get upset when she finds out that Evie’s (Philippa Northeast) fiancé, Matt (Alec Snow), knew Zac’s infidelity but chose not to tell her. DigitalSpy cited Nicodemou’s interview with TV Week where she said:
“Things haven’t been going well for a while. They’ve been very disconnected and haven’t had time for each other. They’d fallen apart, but for Zac to sleep with Sam – she feels really deceived and can’t see how they’ll get past it. She is just so distraught and upset.”
Leah has a lot on her plate right now. Aside from her marital problem, she is also helping out his grieving teenage son raising his baby, Luc, after Billie died last month. She is also dealing with Luc’s uncle, Ash (George Mason), and biological grandmother, Irene. Both want to spend more time with the newborn.
Is Charlie Clausen Leaving Home and Away 2017 Too?
Zac’s niece Evie may not be the only one leaving the Bay, he might too. Speculations have been circulating for months that Clausen will also leave the Australian soap.
The rumors emerged when the actor’s CV has been updated to read “Zac Maguire Home & Away 2012-2016 Seven Network,” Back to The Bay noted. Clausen had denied the rumors and said he had signed a new contract for the show for an undisclosed period of time.
What is certain for now is that his character will not be able to attend Evie and Matt’s wedding ceremony. He will be at a teacher’s conference in Adelaide and his flight back to Summer Bay for the event will be delayed. Zac, however, will make it to the reception.
