Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian-pace episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away aired Roo Stewart's return scenes in Australia on Thursday (August 31), but her comeback led to heartbreak for Marilyn Chambers.
Roo has been absent from the soap for several weeks after she was transferred to another hospital in the wake of the explosion disaster. However, the show's latest triple bill of episodes on Channel 7 saw her brought back to Northern Districts Hospital.
Alf Stewart set the ball rolling for Roo's return by requesting for her to be granted a day pass, which would allow her to spend some time with her loved ones out of the hospital.
This prompted the hospital to speed up Roo's transfer back to Northern Districts instead, allowing her to be closer to her loved ones again.
Roo is still recovering after getting caught up in the recent explosion drama, which saw corrupt skincare company Stunning Organics send a bomb to Marilyn.
Marilyn was wary over seeing Roo again, still blaming herself for the feud with Stunning Organics spiralling so badly out of control.
When Roo's loved ones paid her a visit at the hospital, she behaved warmly towards her dad Alf and friend Leah Patterson.
Marilyn was dismayed to see Roo show signs of frostiness with her in comparison.
When Marilyn confided in Alf later, he suggested that Roo was annoyed with her for not visiting in recent months. Marilyn had deliberately kept her distance from Roo, unable to face her as she was struggling with her guilt over the explosion.
An apologetic Marilyn headed back to the hospital to clear the air with Roo, but was left distraught when her worst fears were realised about being blamed for her friend's ordeal.
In an uncharacteristic outburst, Roo told Marilyn not to worry about her lack of visits: "I'm glad you didn't come. Why do you think? Marilyn, this is all your fault."
Will Roo regret her harsh words?
Georgie Parker, who plays Roo, disappeared from screens on Home and Away as she took a break to star in the stage play Rhinestone Rex and Miss Monica.
Her return scenes will air in the UK on Channel 5 on October 24.
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.45pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.
In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 and streams on 7plus.
