Justin (James Stewart) is in need of someone to talk to after trying to help Brody (Jackson Heywood) through his situation with Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and Simone (Emily Eskell), so he finds himself off-loading to Leah (Ada Nicodemou) over drinks at Salt. He doesnt mention the affair itself, but he does discuss his family problems in general.
Leah points out that everyone in the family apart from Raffy (Olivia Deeble) are adults, so cant they deal with their problems without involving him? Justin realises hes been the father figure since their parents died, and its time to let go.
The next day, Leah helps him to do that by having him enjoy a day at the beach. While hes excited about the idea, its soon dampened when he runs into Ben (Rohan Nichol) and asks after Ziggy. Ben is livid with him and reminds him that she wont be at work any time soon before walking away.
Leah sees the tension between the two men, and although she didnt hear the exchange, asks if everything is OK. Justin reveals the truth, and Leah is stunned. She wonders if Brody and Ziggy can work through it, but Justin is doubtful.
Later, Mason (Orpheus Pledger) leaves Justin alone after having another go at him about the affair, and Leah is there to console him. He soon realises the only good part of his day has been down to her.
