Scenes which air in Australia next week see Brax get stabbed by dangerous Jake (Fletcher Humphrys) as the gang battles over drugs in Summer Bay spiral out of control, according to TV Week.
When Casey and Ruby are held hostage by Jake, Brax is forced to deal with the situation by tracking down the bad boy and rescuing the teenagers.
"He's furious. He hates that what he does for business has crossed over into his personal life," Peacocke told the magazine.
However, as he comes face-to-face with Jake, a knife is brandished and Brax finds himself falling victim to a shocking attack.
"He's been stabbed in the back," Peacocke explained. "He knows he can't go to hospital so he tries to patch himself up. He's at death's door."
Subsequent scenes apparently see a weak Brax make his way to Angelo's restaurant, where his ex-girlfriend Charlie (Esther Anderson) finds him.
Peacocke added: "When she sees that she's almost lost him, it could make her re-evaluate what she thinks about him."
