Spoilers: Home and Away's Leah faces 'shocking' attack: 'Chilling'

Last week on Home and Away, Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) endangered her unborn baby after inhaling dangerous chemicals, and John Palmer (Shane Withington) had his tyres slashed.

This week, Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) faces a ‘chilling’ threat to her safety, Ziggy buckles under the pressures of pregnancy, and there’s a proposal on the horizon.

Summer Bay is starting to see Heather’s (Sofia Nolan) true colours, with Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and John sensing that she isn’t who she pretends to be.

While Heather is the one behind John’s slashed tyres, Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons) takes it upon herself to take the blame — something that doesn’t sit right with Leah.

Ada tells Yahoo Lifestyle that Leah knows Heather is ‘manipulative’, but she isn’t able to break Marilyn’s trust and expose their mother-daughter relationship.


However, she isn’t one to back down and gives Heather a piece of her mind, threatening to go to the police if she continues to harm Marilyn.

“I loved working with Sofia, she is such a great actress, loves what she does and is very good,” Ada says.

“Her threatening scenes with Leah were very chilling. She’s scary.”

The tension ramps up when Leah arrives home after work to find that somebody has broken in and completely trashed the place.

“Leah is shocked and scared and can’t believe Heather would do this, it’s definitely a real low. Leah is worried for everyone’s safety and knows she needs to tell Justin the truth,” Ada says.

This leaves the questions in everyone’s minds — how far is Heather willing to go?

Ziggy snaps under the pressure

After Ziggy’s health scare last week, Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor) is desperate for his girlfriend to come clean to her boss.

Of course, being extremely stubborn, she ignores how much she’s struggling physically. With her hormones raging, Dean isn’t able to do anything right — what happened to being a team?

The pregnant mechanic isn’t able to cope at the shop and breaks down in tears in front of Justin Morgan (James Stewart).

After some wise words from Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir), Dean realises he needs to be supportive, no matter how upset Ziggy gets.

Tane plans a special surprise

After seeing his ex-girlfriend Ziggy move into a more domestic bubble with a baby on the way, Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) starts to think about his future.

Felicity Newman (Jacqui Purvis) and Tane have been kidnapped, involved in an illegal gambling ring (where Tane got stabbed), and pulled off an undercover cop operation after bikies threatened their family.

It makes sense that their relationship has only gone from strength to strength, and Tane feels finally ready to settle down.

He spends days planning the perfect way to pop the question, but is Felicity ready to leave her wild and free nature behind her?
