    The One Plot Hole From "Home And Away" That Has Been Bothering Me For Many Years

    Yes, it's finally time to talk about the Sutherland twins.

    The year was 2000-and something. The Sutherland family was one of the most prominent families in the Bay. Summer Bay, that is.

    Here's the fam:

    Introducing the Sutherland twins, Kirsty and Jade. They're obviously fraternal, as you can tell.

    Now Kirsty and Jade have a tight bond. In fact, they can even feel each other's pain.

    One time there was a landslide (oh no!) but Kirsty was able to rescue Jade because of their special, telepathic ~connection~.

    I THINK it was a landslide. I could be wrong. It could've been another natural disaster, fire, plane accident, stalker, bushwalk gone wrong, boat crash, Summer Bay diner explosion, etc. The point is they had a telepathic connection.

    So that's cool. Their weird mind communication helped save each other's lives and shit.


    However, things then started to change a little...

    *cue some dramatic music*.

    Rhys and Shelley got some news that there had been a disastrous mix-up at the hospital.

    What could this mean?!?!?!

    That's right: one of the twins was SWAPPED. AT. BIRTH.

    Turns out Kirsty and Jade weren't twins at all... Kirsty, in fact, had an identical twin named Laura.

    ***lots of tears, anger, frustration, "why is this happening to me" etc.***

    "B-b-but..." I hear you murmur.


    I know. I KNOW.

    The telepathic connection right? That twin-thing. That fabled tale that all twins have some sort of mind-reading communication.

    I mean, how the fuck, they weren't even related in the end?!

    Home and Away, I don't think you thought this one through.
