Home And Away's Charlie Buckton (Esther Anderson) will be left fighting for her life after she is shot and left for dead by bad boy Jake Pirovic (Fletcher Humphrys). The River Boy shoots the police officer after she shot his brother Hammer (Benedict Samuel) in a hostage situation.
The dramatic scenes have already aired in Australia as part of the season finale with viewers on tenterhooks to see if show favourite Charlie survives the shooting. In a tragic twist, Charlie was shot just as she and daughter Ruby (Rebecca Breeds) prepared to leave Summer Bay with boyfriend Darryl 'Brax' Braxton (Steve Peacock) and his brother Casey (Lincoln Younes).
It's currently unknown if Charlie will survive but with rumours that Anderson is leaving the role, it's not looking good for the Summer Bay cop. In other news, the season finale saw Dr. Sid Walker (Robert Mammone) facing assault charges after attacking Stu Henderson (Brenton Thwaites) who had been hitting Sid's daughter Sasha (Demi Harman).
Meanwhile, April Scott slept with bad boy Heath Braxton (Dan Ewing). The character, played by Rhiannon Fish is currently getting over a break-up with Dexter Walker (Charles Cottier)
