Did you figure it out? Harlow (Jemma Donovan) meets Corey (Laurence Boxhall), a backpacker who is a member of The Order, the secretive cult of which Harlow’s mother Prue (Denise Van Outen) was a member.
Prue’s membership in the cult was one of the factors that caused her and Harlow to fall out. Despite the fact that Prue stated she had left the order, she spent weeks attempting to elect Harlow into it. Harlow cut her mother off after knowing the truth.
A few months later, Gary Canning (Damien Richardson) reunited with Prue, who had been kicked out of the cult after failing to pay her dues.
When she returned to Australia in 2020, she announced that she was marrying Gary, which upset Harlow and Kyle (Chris Milligan). Prue and Gary died at the hands of psychotic Finn Kelly, therefore there was no happily ever after (Rob Mills).
Finn had hidden a bomb in Lucy Robinson’s (Melissa Bell) engagement package, but Prue was inadvertently killed when her box was mixed up with Lucy’s.
Prue and her car were both blown up when she opened the box to get a bottle of champagne.
Harlow traveled to London earlier this year to meet with her aunt Harriet (Amanda Holden) and reminisce about Prue’s recollections. So she reasoned. Harriet had actually enticed Harlow to London in order to obtain Prue’s journal.
The Order had offered Harriet £10,000 if she gave them the diary, it turned out. Harriet was short on funds after losing her job, so she leaped at the chance to steal Harlow’s diary as soon as she arrived in the British capital.
Harlow, thankfully, discovered the theft when Harriet’s diary fell out of her bag and persuaded her aunt to return it.
Harlow was soon persuaded to burn it by Corey, a mystery British traveller she met in her hostel, who told her that doing so would put an end to The Order’s obsession with it.
Soon after, Harlow returned to Erinsborough, determined to put the incident behind her and move on with her life.
Corey, on the other hand, surprised her when he showed up in Erinsborough barely a week later, having apparently been so taken with her that he hopped on a plane and went halfway around the world to see her.
At The Waterhole, the two enjoyed a kiss in front of their friends, and it appeared like Harlow was on the verge of a burgeoning romance – just what she needed to get Ned (Ben Hall) out of her thoughts.
It isn’t to be, though. After yet another unpleasant meeting with Ned, Harlow tries to make things work with Corey the next week, but it’s not long before she realizes that there’s no spark between them.
She ends things with the Brit, who, for someone who traveled all the way to Melbourne to be with her, handles things admirably. She’s relieved, and now she can concentrate on her lust for Ned.
While he appeared to be handling the news well, Corey’s intentions to meet her had been hampered by the breakup. Harlow is astonished to find himself still in Erinsborough the next day. She’s perplexed as to why he’s stayed, oblivious to the fact that he’s a member of The Order, in town to catch her.
He provides his Order contact a hidden USB, but not before making his own duplicate. Is Harlow in danger, and what is he up to?

Later in the week, as Fashion Week approaches, Ned’s stress levels rise, and it’s only Harlow’s encouragement that brightens his spirits. After everything they’ve been through, Corey cleverly encourages her to admit her affections, but she’s hesitant.
Corey’s newly altered plan includes forcing them together, but how will this serve The Order? Will Ned and Harlow be able to resist their undeniable desire as Fashion Week approaches?
