Summer Bay fans have been questioning how the hell Cash and Eden are currently surviving financially
After a debate about suspended Summer Bay police officer Cash Newman and how he’s been making ends meet while on forced leave and uncertain about whether he wants his job back, fans of Home and Away have called attention to a gaping plot hole within the show’s storylines.
In addition to being involved in a police scandal in the Bay Area that resulted in a three-month unpaid suspension, Cash recently endured the kidnapping of his girlfriend Eden and the difficult separation of his sister. However, with Eden secure once more and things improving, a fan asked a very pertinent question this week in a Home and Away Facebook group.
“Three months without pay. And Eden barely does enough gigs. How do they pay their bills?” they commented.
The comment had Home and Away fans laughing, though some came through with the facts.
As one person noted, “Cash had a lot of savings,” fans were reminded of Cash’s inheritance.
“Who needs money in Summer Bay?” Someone else made a joke. Someone said, “I need to go and live there!” in reply.
“Roo, who enjoys organizing things, will have to plan a fundraising. It will also provide something to do,” jokingly said another enthusiast.
Another user said, “Have often wondered that and also for all the coffees they have lol.”
Others agreed that despite taking long pauses, several Summer Bay firms continue to prosper.
As one individual put it, Justin’s garage is “like a garage that doesn’t operate for six months, then mysteriously reappears as a functioning business.”
