Home and Away revisits Kieran Baldivis story as Martha faces a big decision

Could he return?

Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

Home and Away has revisited the Kieran Baldivis storyline on Australian screens this week.

Kieran (Rick Donald) had an eventful stint in Summer Bay earlier this year, which saw him head down a self-destructive path as he struggled with his alcoholism.

During his time in the seaside town, Kieran violently launched himself at Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and took his mum Martha Stewart (Belinda Giblin) hostage.

There were also outstanding warrants out for his arrest due to previous crimes that he'd committed. In the end, he was forced to face the consequences when Martha called the police on him.

This week's episodes on Channel 7 in Australia have seen Kieran's half-sister Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) receive a surprising call about Kieran.

Roo was told that Kieran had finished his rehab and counselling, so was ready to start getting back to a normal life again.

As part of his recovery, Kieran asked to come back to live with the Stewart family at Summer Bay House.

While Roo was open to the idea, Alf was outraged and made it clear that he'd be having nothing to do with Kieran again.

Martha, who'd just returned to Summer Bay herself, was upset that Roo and Alf weren't giving her a chance to have a say over the situation.

Martha saw it as yet more evidence of Roo and Alf not respecting her enough to treat her like an adult.

In the end, it was Martha who made the final call as she told her family that she wasn't ready to have Kieran come and stay again.

Instead, Martha decided to take a relaxing trip to Merimbula and invited Alf to come with her, once he'd apologised for mishandling the latest Kieran drama.

But has the door been left open for Kieran to return again?

Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes in July on Channel 5.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
