Home and Away spoilers: Shock for Marilyn and John as Jett’s condition worsens

Tensions have been running high at home for Marilyn (Emily Symons) and John (Shane Withington) as they adjust to caring for Jett (Will McDonald). Home from the hospital and struggling with his new life in a wheelchair, it soon becomes apparent there’s more to his condition than physical injuries.

With the knowledge several of his men died as a result of the explosion in Afghanistan, Jett has been insistent he needs to travel to the funeral for one of them, having already missed the first one.

Marilyn and John try to support him, saying a break may do him good, but Jett says he doesn’t want to go because he should be the one who’s dead…
