OccupationPsychiatric Nurse

Eve Jacobsen played by Emily Perry, made her first appearance on 21 January 2005.

Eve works as a nurse at a Psychiatric Institution and falls for one of her patients Sarah Lewis (Luisa Hastings-Edge). When Sarah's boyfriend, Felix Walters (Josh Lawson) dies of crystal meth overdose administered by Sarah, which she believes to be the result of a beating, she asks Eve to help her escape to get revenge. Sarah later shoots Noah Lawson (Beau Brady) dead before turning the gun on herself. Eve takes revenge on Summer Bay by murdering Zoe McCallister, a new nurse at Northern Districts hospital and assuming her identity and burns her body in a bushfire to prevent identification.

Eve then sets Noah's place alight, with his widow, Hayley (Bec Cartwright) still inside and plans further destruction by sabotaging a seaplane flight in order to kill the group on board but is only successfully in killing Benny Barron (Colin Borgonon), the pilot. She then frames Marc Edwards (Christopher Hobbs) for her crimes and begins targeting Sally Fletcher (Kate Ritchie) after she refers to Sarah as a psycho. Eve tries to kill Sally on two occasions but fails.

After a bomb threat at a murder mystery party is nullified, Marc is released on bail and works out that Eve is the stalker but she hits him over the head with a crowbar several times, killing him and then frames him once more. Eve continues playing more psychotic games by threatening another attack at the "Miss Groper" beauty pageant but she is only toying with the police. Detective Peter Baker (Nicholas Bishop) becomes convinced that Eve is Sarah returned from the dead and there is a confrontation at an abattoir. She begins playing further games with Peter and kidnaps Sally. Sally is rescued by the police before the building where she is held explodes with Eve inside.

Eve is later revealed to be alive and the body was that of Laura McPhearson, who disappeared on the same day Eve supposedly died. She continues baiting Peter and targets his apartment complex by moving in and assuming the identity of "Maxine Trood" (an anagram of "I Am Next Door"). She stages a bomb threat at the complex, forcing the area to be evacuated but it is only an alarm clock going off. Eve then sends a videotape to Jack Holden (Paul O'Brien) and Martha MacKenzie's (Jodi Gordon) engagement party and Peter is rattled. He solves the anagram but is still one step behind Eve. Peter receives an email telling him to arrive at the abandoned abattoir alone and he comes face to face with Eve but she overpowers him and tells him how she escaped the fire. Jack arrives on the scene and tackles Eve but she gets away. Peter and Jack separate in order to find her but Eve holds Jack over a balcony three stories above. Peter agrees to offer himself in exchange while Tracey Thompson (Sarah Enright) and several others circle behind and apprehend Eve. At the station, Peter tells her he has won but when he leaves the room she smirks, plotting revenge. Eve reappears at Jack and Martha's wedding and takes Tracey hostage and Peter bargains with her in the same manner he did for Jack but Tracey reveals she is Eve's accomplice. A gas explosion trigged by a cake with sparklers occurs and Eve and Tracey are killed instantly.

The Summer Bay Stalker storyline featuring Eve was nominated for "Best Storyline" at the 2006 Inside Soap Awards.[2] Eve ruining Jack and Martha's wedding day was nominated for "Best Storyline" at the 2007 Inside Soap Awards.[3] Eve also featured as part of Digital Spy's Serial Killer Poll in 2012.[4] Michael Idato of the Sydney Morning Herald hailed Eve's campaign of Terror against the Bay as "the storyline of the moment, discussed everywhere from the office canteen to the corridors of power." On Eve's revelation as the Summer Bay stalker, He opined "Of course, we knew all along. The clue? She was the only suspect not in the show's opening titles. Haven't you learnt your lessons? It's always the guest star."[5] An Inside Soap reporter branded Eve plotting to blow up the murder mystery party a "bonkers - but nonetheless brilliant" storyline.[6]

I was new to Sydney and I was driving around getting totally lost before the audition and I was running late".[17] Jacommeti experienced nerves when first dealing with his fame; "A bus driver said 'hey, I know you, you're Diesel' and I just slunk out of there and caught another bus. It's weird, amazing."[17] He described his castmates as being sincere and helpful.[17] Jacometti talked about his character; "He falls in love with the wrong people, causes a bit of trouble and then gets out of there, "I don't think we're alike but maybe his core is similar to mine."[17]

Diesel arrives at Summer Bay High and is introduced to Sally Fletcher (Kate Ritchie) by principal Barry Hyde (Ivar Kants). His unconventional dress sense makes him a target for bully Jason Pappa (Joshua Biagi) and his friends who begin picking on him and when they discover he has a rose tattoo they assume he is gay. In order to dispel the rumours about his sexuality, Diesel begins dating Matilda Hunter (Indiana Evans) who is attracted with him. However, he tells Cassie Turner (Sharni Vinson) he is not interested in Matilda romantically. Jason sees through the smokescreen and continues to taunt Diesel and beats him up.

Sally offers to tutor Diesel and makes excuses as to why she cannot go over to his house. It is revealed Diesel is living rough after falling out with his foster parents and Sally invites him to live with her and her husband Flynn Saunders (Joel McIlroy) who is reluctant to have Diesel there. Diesel and Flynn do not get along. After Diesel reveals to Sally it is his mother's birthday and he used to take her for a meal, she agrees to go a restaurant with him much to Flynn's unease.

Henry Hunter (Tobi Atkins) finds Diesel with a photo of Sally and Diesel tells him they are having an affair. During a tutoring session, Diesel kisses Sally, which is witnessed by Dan Baker (Tim Campbell). Sally rejects Diesel and he burns a sketch he drew of her. Diesel begins acting up in class and later alleges Sally has been sexually harassing him. The Allegations are soon all over town and Sally is suspended as a result. Ric Dalby (Mark Furze) and Cassie try to get Diesel to drop the allegations but it only exacerbates the situation. He tells Sally he will drop the complaint if she admits she loves him.

Diesel steals Sally's locket containing a photo of her and Flynn and fakes some emails allegedly from Sally to him. Carl Summons (John O'Hare), an investigator from the Education department interviews Diesel and he shows him the emails. When Carl asks Sally to show him her locket, a photo of Diesel is found and Sally is stood down from her position at the school. Barry threatens to make life difficult for Diesel if he does not admit the truth. Sally comes home to find Diesel holding her baby daughter Pippa hostage and threatens to harm her if Sally does not admit she loves him. Sally tries reasoning with him and he allows her to take a call from Flynn, who is alerted to the danger. Diesel works out what is going on and he tries to flee with Pippa but Flynn tackles him and Diesel is arrested. He confesses to Ken Harper (Mark McCann) about falsifying the allegations and framing Sally. Sally visits him and he tells her she reminds him of his mother.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Catholic Priest Toby Sherring spoke out against Several of the serial's storylines involving religion, including one where Mumma Rose convinces Tasha Andrews (Isabel Lucas) to join her cult the Believers. Sherring said: "Sometimes it is assumed that all churches operate like cults, who will steal away naive teenagers from their families, brainwash them with strange ideas and involve them in strange suicide pacts, or send them knocking on people's doors with predictions about the end of the world." He added: "Because religion in TV shows such as Home and Away is portrayed in this way, the media version is firstly more believable and secondly much more intriguing, although ultimately unappealing."[49]

Mumma Rose is the leader of a cult called The Believers. She has her son, Jonah Abraham (James Mitchell) convince Tasha Andrews to join the group. Tasha's friends are sceptical about The Believers but she refuses to listen. Tasha's boyfriend, Robbie Hunter (Jason Smith) tries to get her to see sense but he is pushed into a river by Mumma Rose who delays the search by stealing Tasha's mobile, so she cannot call her friends.

Martha's rescue attempt is foiled when she is spotted near the hatcher where Rebecca is held. Martha escapes but in unable to prove any evidence of the Believers taking Rebecca.

Mumma Rose engineers a plan for Jonah to impregnate Tasha by drugging them both. Neither have any recollection of the night before. When Jonah helps Tasha escape, they are captured and Mumma Rose arranges for a purification ceremony for Jonah and Tasha which involves the use of fire. Tasha quickly manages to turn the group against Mumma Rose by reminding them she is the chosen one and they attack her. The police arrive and arrest the believers but Mumma Rose flees into the night in a hidden car.

Some months later, Mumma Rose returns and tries various attempts to get Tasha back in her clutches but they fail. She manages to corner her and holds her and Martha hostage. Tasha is then taken to a remote where Mumma Rose tries to get her to induce labour. Tasha tells her if she does not have caesarean, the baby will die. Mumma Rose then arranges for Rachel Armstrong (Amy Mathews) to be kidnapped and threatens to cut Tasha open herself if she does not comply. Rachel tries to inject Mumma Rose with a sedative but gets Tasha instead. The police receive a tip-off from Nurse Julie Cooper (Lisa Hayson-Phillips) and Mumma Rose is arrested.

Mumma Rose escapes with the help of Charity Fernbrook (Charlotte Gregg) and snatches Tasha's newborn daughter, Ella Hunter and plans to cleanse the infant with fire. She is foiled when Charity has a change of heart and calls the police, who are followed by Tasha, Robbie, Martha and Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger). A hostage situation occurs and Mumma Rose demands to talk to Tasha, who agrees to meet her. She then locks them all in the room.
