Home and Away Justin prison fears as he becomes monster in brutal attack
Home and Away's Justin Morgan becomes a "monster" in upcoming scenes when he goes to extreme lengths to protect his daughter, with actor James Stewart admitting it was "so fun" to play.
Next week on the Aussie soap, Justin is frantic when Ava (Annabel Wolfe) goes missing and he discovers her in the back of a man's car.
With Ava lying on a mattress in the company of a shirtless stranger, Justin believes his daughter could have been sexually assaulted and brutally attacks a confused Conor.

With the police arriving on scene, an enraged Justin is pulled off a severely beaten Conor and dragged into an interview room.
Afterwards, Justin realises it was all a ploy from Ava to get Theo (Matt Evans) to come and rescue her.
Touching upon why Justin reacts the way he does, James exclusively told Daily Star: "She texts him saying, 'Help me. I'm in trouble.' Justin has no other information other than she's in a stranger's van and in trouble.
"I'm not justifying Justin's behaviour but most of the time, someone's going to get hurt. He finds Conor and unfortunately she's on his bed while he's just finished a surf and is putting a t-shirt over his naked torso."
With no context and believing this person has hurt his daughter, Justin doesn't think of the consequences and is blinded by rage.
Later in the interview room, Justin's world comes crashing down when he realises he assaulted an innocent man and is now facing prison time.
The 47-year-old continued: "Cash is the one that looks at Justin and says, 'She's lied.' Your daughter is the exact reason why all of this is happening and you're being charged with grievous bodily harm and could possibly be sent to prison."
James, who has portrayed Justin since 2016, revealed he has enjoyed the current storyline because he was able to act like a "monster" – something he doesn't get to play often.
The Aussie star added: "I remember the day in the studio because it's nourishing as an actor to play these stakes, so this was in my fun bag of things I really wanted to try and express.
"I've never really been much of a monster but Justin became this monster. It was so fun."
Home and Away airs 1:45pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6:30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.
