They have many faults, but there’s one thing Steffy and Hope can agree upon.

HOME AND AWAY LEAH’S NEW (OLD) LOVER Ten years ago, eccentric DETECTIVE ROBERT ROBERTSON (Socratis Otto) blew into Summer Bay to tell tall tales and look at the world a little differently while investigating the murders of CHARLIE BUCKTON’s father GRANT BLEDCOE and later PENN GRAHAM.
