Home and Away's Bella Nixon is struggling to get past Tommy's sickening assault...
Home and Away fans will see poor Bella Nixon continue to be haunted by memories of Tommy in today’s trip to Summer Bay.
Ever since the teenager started chatting to Tommy online, viewers could see that this particular storyline wasn’t going to end well.
But nothing could prepare fans for the fact Tommy would not only track Bella down at home, but also try and attack her, only for Irene Robert’s to come in just at the right moment and hit him over the head with a vase.
However the drama didn’t end there… Tommy also begged Irene and Bella to keep his attack ‘their little secret’ – words that trigged a long-buried memory from when Irene herself was sexually abused as a child.
Fans know that Tommy ended up in hospital in a coma after Irene’s attack, but while he is now awake and has been charged with his crimes, the nightmare is far from over for Irene and Bella.
While Irene faces a lengthy court battle for her crimes, Bella is struggling with the memories of what Tommy did to her, and today sees her pushing away those closest to her as she tries to get her head around her emotions.
Despite having moved back in with big brother Colby, Bella is still shutting herself away from the world, but as she continues to have nightmares about the day she was attacked, Colby is at a loss over what to do.
In the end it is Willow who comes to Bella’s aid… getting the teenager to open up and talk about what is going on inside her head.
Both Colby and best friend Dean are desperate to help Bella too, but Willow is adamant that this time she needs female friend to lend her a shoulder to cry on.
But with Tommy’s attack playing so heavily on Bella’s mind, will Willow be able to get through to her before she pushes everyone close to her away?
