The show had teased that one character wouldn't make it out alive in a trailer.

The clip was tweeted with the caption: "Are you ready to say goodbye?"

Mason was one of a number of characters at risk after armed gunmen took several Summer Bay residents hostage in the hospital.

With Bella Nixon's life at risk, Mason bravely confronted the gang, but was shot dead himself.

It was a creative decision because it benefits the show the most at this time.

Fans who were watching in Australia were devastated.

Speaking to TV Week about his departure, actor Orpheus Pledger, who has played Mason since 2015, revealed: "[Leaving] was a joint decision.

"It was between the production moving forward and setting storylines, and me planning what's going on [with my career].

"It was a creative decision because it benefits the show the most at this time. And it gave me a bit of time to prepare for a lot of things as well, so there was no stress. I mean it was just so good."
