Home and Away viewers were on the edge of their seat last week, with Mackenzie Booth’s (Emily Weir) poker storyline ramping to a new level, leaving Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) on the brink of death.
This week, there’s another twist in the saga when a body washes up in Summer Bay, blackmail is used to cover up a crime, and a fan-favourite plans her exit.
Dean gets framed for murder
Summer Bay residents are shocked to discover a dead body on the beach, with detectives Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) and Rose Delaney (Kirsty Marillier) suspecting foul play. Eagle-eyed fans have predicted that the body is PK’s, who was last seen tied up in the boot of Dean Thompson’s (Patrick O’Connor) car.
After abducting PK last week, fans are worried that Dean is getting framed for murder. With his criminal record, and anger towards PK in the Surf Club last week, his prospects are not looking good.
Sophie Dillman, who plays Ziggy Astoni, spoke to Yahoo Lifestyle and teased that viewers will really love the next few episodes. The star enjoyed filming this storyline, saying: “Everyone loves to see Dean in his truest form - a River Boy. It was really fun to film, having such great actors to work with and directors to play with as well.”
She touches on what’s going through Ziggy’s head, explaining that Dean getting the River Boys involved is really ‘horrifying’ to her.
“She is scared he will get hurt, first and foremost. She is also scared he could get caught and go to jail,” the actor starts.
“She is furious he has gone back to that way of thinking, and she hates every River Boy that comes near her!’
Millie blackmails Xander to keep him quiet
Both of Xander Delaney’s (Luke Van Os) sisters, Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) and Rose Delaney (Kirsty Marillier) are worried about his inappropriate relationship with patient Millie (Zara Zoe), who was recently in a fatal car crash.
Xander is surprised when Millie remembers she was at fault for the crash that claimed her best friend’s life. When Millie lets Logan take the fall for the accident, Xander threatens to tell the police. Millie won’t back down, and uses Xander’s past against him — saying she’ll report him for harassment if he tries anything.
Emmett returns — will this be the end of Nikau and Bella’s relationship?
Fans will be disappointed to see yet another bump in the road for Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) and Bella Nixon’s (Courtney Miller) relationship, when the arrival of photographer Emmett Ellison (J.R. Reyne) brings the couple to a crossroad.
When Emmett offers Bella an opportunity of a lifetime, it's going to be difficult for her to turn down. Yahoo Lifestyle revealed earlier this year that Courtney is now based in Melbourne, so it looks like her character may leaving the show for good.
Roo worries about Martha
Over at the hospital, Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) finally donates a kidney to her unwell mother, Martha Stewart (Belinda Giblin). After waiting so long, the family can’t believe the moment has finally come. Will everything go smoothly, or is there something dreadful on the horizon?
