Right now, it's hard to say where this will go."[9] A writer from TV Buzz said that "Henri may be an excellent teacher, but were not sure she should be tutoring young Casey in lessons of love."[10]

I didn't pack anything up because I thought it would be a quick trip."[21] The actress called the role her dream job and said she had always wanted to live in Sydney, where the show is filmed.[21]

Catherine Mack plays Natalie Davison

Natalie is a school counsellor, who helps Sasha Bezmel (Demi Harman) and Casey Braxton (Lincoln Younes).[23] A writer for Channel 5 said she would "have her work cut out for her" due to the amount of teen drama in Summer Bay.[22] Mack described her character as having "a very selfless quality and determination to help others that I really admire."[22] She stated that Natalie "is passionate and strong", but she does have flaws.[22] Mack added that Natalie went through some tough times as a teenager, which forced her to grow up quickly.[22] When asked if Natalie interacts with the Braxton brothers, Dan Ewing (who plays Heath Braxton) quipped to a TV Week writer that she has "no direct cuddles" with his character.[24] In June 2012, it was revealed Natalie would become Darryl Braxton's (Steve Peacocke) love interest.[23] Mack said Natalie finds Brax interesting and she is trying to work out who he is and what he is about.[23] In 2013, Mack received a nomination for the Most Popular New Female Talent Logie Award.[20]

In June 2013, it was announced that Mack had decided to leave Home and Away and that she had already filmed her final scenes.[25] The actress told a TV Week reporter "It was time for Natalie to leave the Bay, as she had some unfinished business with her family to attend to.

Natalie grows concerned for Casey when his father, Danny (Andy McPhee), is released from prison. Natalie grows closer to Brax, prompting him to tell her about Danny's violent past. Natalie and Brax have a one-night stand. Jett James' (Will McDonald) foster mother, Gina Austin (Sonia Todd), asks Natalie to counsel him after his biological father rejects him. However, Natalie realises that she cannot counsel Jett without his full co-operation and consent. Brax becomes worried when Casey spends more time Danny and they disappear from the Bay. He and Natalie learn that Danny is planning to rob a local bar and they go to find Casey. Shortly after getting to the bar, they hear a shot and find Casey has shot Danny. Natalie tries to help Danny, but he later dies. Natalie becomes friends with Bianca Scott (Lisa Gormley). Natalie and Brax notice that Casey is acting strange and they agree to put their relationship on hold to help him. Brax goes on a camping trip with Casey, who later goes missing. Brax and Natalie learn that he has been taken to the desert and they try and track him down. Natalie and Brax find Casey and he tells them about a mysterious girl named Tamara (Kelly Paterniti) who helped him. Natalie initially thinks Casey was hallucinating. Back home, Natalie learns that she must make a statement at Casey's court case.

But Zac tells Natalie to choose between himself or the Braxtons and she distances herself from them.

Zac accuses Natalie of still being in love with Brax and she admits that he is right and that she has not got over Brax. Zac and Natalie split up and Zac realizes that the reason Natalie clung to the Braxtons was due to her trying to fill a void in her life caused by her mother leaving her as a child.

He wants to make peace with Danny, so he will feel like a better father towards his son.[30] The TV Week writer explained that there is not a happy family reunion, with Danny's desertion and his criminal past still sore points for Heath.[30] Ewing told the writer "Heath definitely resents his father mainly because he idolised him so much when he was a young teenager. So it's pretty icy and there's a lot of pent-up anguish and emotion."[30] Danny surprises Heath by admitting that he regrets a lot of the things he did in the past, like throwing his family away.[30] Roz Laws from the Sunday Mercury called Danny a "deadbeat dad".[31]

He turns up in Summer Bay and Brax allows him to spend the night at his house. Danny later moves into the caravan park and befriends Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons). Danny tells Brax that he wants his money back and starts playing games with him. Danny invites Marilyn out to dinner, while some guys that he hired knock Brax out and leave him in the bush. When Casey confronts his father, Danny manages to lie his way out of it. Danny hints to Brax that he is going to get his money back from his ex-wife, Cheryl, and Casey becomes aware of Danny's darker side. Danny learns that Ruby Buckton (Rebecca Breeds) has a lot of money and he befriends her, hoping to scam her out of the money. When Heath tells Danny about his son's progress in hospital, Danny does not seem to care. Heath confronts him and Danny lashes out, making Heath realise that he has not changed.

Brax tells Danny to leave Casey alone, but he refuses. Danny is visited by Kyle Bennett (Nicholas Westaway), who gives him a gun and a fake passport. Danny learns that Casey has double crossed him, when Ruby moves into Summer Bay House. Danny attacks Casey, but he pretends to still be on his side. Casey accompanies his father to a motel and Danny robs the bar. They are caught by the owner and Danny pulls out his gun, forcing the owner to open the safe.

Tamara became involved in a love triangle with Casey Braxton (Lincoln Younes) and Sasha Bezmel (Demi Harman) in late 2012.[37] Paterniti revealed that things would become more complicated for the trio in 2013.

Adam later asks Bianca if she wants him to get rid of Heath, but she tells him no. Bianca later breaks up with Adam. Jamie then leaves Heath for dead under Adam's orders but then Heath survives. Brax then cuts ties with Adam. Brax, Liam, Heath and Kyle then set a trap for Jamie into finding Leah.

Hugo Johnstone-Burt plays Jamie Sharpe

James "Jamie" Sharpe, played by Hugo Johnstone-Burt, made his first screen appearance on 19 October 2012 and departed on 8 March 2013.[44] The character and Johnstone-Burt's casting was revealed on 28 June 2012.[32] The actor revealed "I'm doing a little stint on Home and Away. I'm playing a super-creepy stalker guy."[32] He added that he was working a lot with Ada Nicodemou who plays Leah Patterson-Baker.[32]

Nicodemou revealed that when Leah and Jamie see each other at a fundraising night, there is "an attraction across the room".[44] Leah thinks Jamie is "very cute" and when he later approaches her, they share a kiss.[44] Leah is hesitant about starting a romantic relationship with Jamie, especially as she has a young son and there is an age gap between them. However, Jamie does not mind their age difference and begins sending Leah lots of text messages asking for a date. Leah eventually agrees to go out with him and Nicodemou explained "On the date, Jamie's very open and interested in finding out about VJ. He opens up about his own family, and Leah really feels for him."[45] Following the date, Leah invites Jamie to spend the night with her and Nicodemou thought that there was "definitely chemistry" between them.[45] The next day Jamie starts "showering" Leah with gifts, which makes her feel uncomfortable.[45]

Claire Crick from All About Soap called Jamie "creepy" and stated "At first, his gifts seemed sweet, but what appeared to be innocent enough soon turned sinister when Leah told Jamie she wasn't interested, so he trashed the Diner… Um, that's not really how normal people deal with rejection, Jamie!"[46] Crick went on to say that she did not blame Leah for running away and thought that viewers had not seen the last of "Jamie's weird ways".[46]

Jamie attends a fundraiser at Angelo's Restaurant in Summer Bay and catches the eye of Leah Patterson-Baker. Her friend, Marilyn (Emily Symons), goes up on stage and reveals to Jamie that Leah likes him. Jamie then comes over to talk to Leah and they share a kiss at the end of the night. Jamie sends Leah text messages asking her out on a date and comes to meet her at the Surf Club. Leah tells him she thinks she is too old for him, but Jamie states that he likes her and does not mind her having a son. He invites her out to dinner, where he reveals that his mother died while she having an affair. Leah invites Jamie back to her house and they have sex. The following day, Jamie sends Leah lots of gifts, including an expensive scarf. He tells her that he will pick her up at eight o'clock for another date, but is told by Liam Murphy (Axle Whitehead) that Leah has gone out.

As Leah soon changes her mind about embarking on a relationship with Jamie she continuously tries to cut ties with Jamie but when he begins to take a dark turn by watching her sleep and deliberately spending time with VJ things come to a head when VJ tries to warn Jamie off he violently grabs his arm threatening him Leah arrives just in time and packs her things, says goodbye before departing Summer Bay and escaping Jamie. Jamie later leaves Heath for dead under Adam's orders. He and Adam are later arrested for their crimes. Jamie then goes to prison where Casey is doing time as well. Casey then saves Jamie from getting attacked and Jamie is later transferred.
