who pays the price?

A TIMELINE TO TRAGEDY... * Months back, HOPE (Annika Noelle) arrived on Catalina Island for a pre-birth babymoon that turned ugly when gale-force winds delayed LIAM ’s (Scott Clifton) arrival and she went into labour!

Quite some time ago, Yashvi Rebecchi harboured a teenage crush on Ned Willis after she saved him from asphyxiating in a sauna! He repaid her efforts by assisting with her AFL footy training.
