As Dean Thompson continues his self-destructive behaviour on Home and Away, can Ari Parata convince Dean to come back to the Bay?
Dean Thompson (played by Patrick O'Connor) doesn't exactly roll out the welcome mat when Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) tracks him down in Mangrove River on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings).
Dean seems intent on carrying on his downward spiral and bad behaviour.
Ari tries to get Dean to see reason, and reminds him of his responsibility to look out for Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller), while Bella's big brother, Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) is in prison.
But will Ari's guilt trip be enough to convince Dean to return to Summer Bay?
Back in the Bay, Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) is conflicted over whether to visit Colby in prison.
The policeman has always been a great mate to Jasmine. But the hospital nurse can't get over the fact that Colby murdered his stepdad (opens in new tab), Ross Nixon and then buried his body out in the bush.
Will some words of advice from friend, Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger) help Jasmine make her mind up?
Meanwhile, it's time for police detective Angelo Rosetta (Luke Jacobz) and his wife, Taylor (Annabelle Stephenson) to leave the Bay.
Their stay in the Bay almost wrecked their marriage, when Taylor had an affair (opens in new tab) with Colby.
But as they attempt to put all that drama behind them, could it be there's still hope of a new beginning for the couple?
Elsewhere, Ari is left feeling worried when he receives an ominous message from gang leader, Paul (Jack Finsterer) about the planned armed robbery in Reefton Lakes.
