Justin has not been feeling like himself for weeks now. He is naive, disoriented, and reckless.
And he found out why this week in Home And Away, as he rushed to the emergency room.
The horrific scenes play out in the garage, where mechanic Justin (James Stewart) uses radioactive acid to repair a vehicle.
He marches on, despite feeling woozy-before he collapses in a heap! Justin tips over the bottle of acid as he falls, causing it to spill around him.

“Originally, Justin didn’t think something was wrong. He’d just been exhausted and running down,” James, 44, tells TV WEEK.
“He’s been working on a car with a lot of rust and he’s got to use a dangerous special substance-if you inhale it or get it on you, it can burn your skin.
“Justin, when he has a spasm and collapses, pours some out of a large jerry can. It goes without saying that things are not looking very good for him.
Luckily, Alf (Ray Meagher) drives by, and discovers Justin on the concrete floor, suffering from chemical burns.
He calls an ambulance immediately, before letting out the situation to Leah (Ada Nicodemou) and Tori (Penny McNamee).
Tori is treating his burns at the hospital and is conducting tests to get some answers.
“In this moment Justin’s life is in danger because of the mystery,” says James. “We don’t know what caused him to crash, and how quickly his health is getting worse.”
What was considered to be a chemical reaction turned out to be much worse?
What does Tori discover?

Finally, as a parent, Dean has to face up to his obligations-and tell Ziggy (Sophie Dillman).
“Amber never wanted to tell Dean that he’s the father of Jai, but in the end it was the right decision,” Maddy tells TV WEEK. “She has a history with Dean, and would have a soft spot for him at all times.”

Yet when Amber introduces him to Jai as a friend, hiding the truth, his advance is cut short.
When Ziggy looks up curiously, she wonders if Amber can be trusted and where she fits into …
