Home and Away star Steve Peacocke has revealed that Brax and Charlie have a big role to play in the soap's 2011 season finale.

Brax and Charlie (Esther Anderson) prepare to leave Summer Bay with Casey (Lincoln Younes) and Ruby (Rebecca Breeds) in episodes airing this week in Australia, but their plans are soon thrown into jeopardy in time for the end-of-season cliffhanger.

Peacocke told TV Week of the storyline: "Brax is now with the one he loves. Charlie's left her job and her career for him, and he's left the brotherhood and the River Boys for her. They both realise what they had in Summer Bay is no longer there, so it's time for a fresh start somewhere completely new."

However, hinting at the shocks in store, he continued: "It's just so exciting - I can't believe my storyline is this good. I'm pretty sure Esther feels the same. It's such a genuine, good final week and it's a good cliffhanger - and nothing is decided. Drama follows them wherever they go, and I definitely think it'll chase them down the track as well."

Peacocke confirmed that the finale storyline involves a face from the past who makes an unexpected return.

"It's definitely someone who isn't welcome back in the Bay and whose presence will make a number of people afraid of what could happen," he explained. "It's someone coming back who could be dangerous to everyone."

Meanwhile, Esther Anderson commented: "There's a figure watching Charlie and Brax as they pack up and prepare to leave for the city. It is a familiar face and someone who has a past connection to Charlie and Brax."

Home and Away's 2011 season finale airs on Friday (November 25) on Network Seven in Australia, and early next year on Channel 5 in the UK.
