Who are the new potential lovebirds?
From the looks of a new ad for Home and Away 2023, romance—even forbidden romance—seems to be at the forefront of Summer Bay residents’ priorities.
The latest teaser has revealed some more spicily plotted storylines, especially between Mackenzie (Emily Weir) and newbie Dr. Levi Fowler (Tristan Gorey), following a dramatic cliffhanger that left fans reeling.
The promo features the beloved Summer Bay characters cooking and dining together in the gorgeous beachside setting. Various flashbacks from the 2023 season finale occur during this lunch.
James Stewart’s character, Justin, yearns to gaze longingly at a photo of himself and Ada Nicodemou before their relationship went south; Juliet Goodwin’s character, Bree, recalls her last moments with Remi (Adam Rowland), whose whereabouts are still unknown; and Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) and Tane (Ethan Browne), whose marriage hit rough patches, have an awkward encounter.
There was a noticeable absence of Leah, Remi, Eden, and Cash at the dining table. In the 2023 season finale, the lives of Remi and Eden were in jeopardy, leaving the remaining three in a state of shock.
Fans were thrilled, however, to see Mackenzie in a romantic space with the new doctor Levi. While sitting around the table, Levi draped a jacket over Mac’s shoulders and proceeded to hold her hand.
Things progressed as flashbacks showed the pair leaning in for a kiss!
“Mackenzie and dr ,” one fan commented.
Another commented: “Can’t wait for home and away next year Mackenzie end up with Levi.”
However, prior to the Home and Away finale Mac was recovering from heart surgery following a diagnosis with Spontaneous Coronary Arty Dissection when she was found unresponsive at home.
Mac was then rushed to hospital, with Dr Levi prepping her for emergency treatment. Everyone questioned whether Mac could survive two hearts attacks, so could the potential relationship between her and Levi be a figment of her imagination?
Home and Away returns to screens on January 8, 2024, on Seven and 7Play.
