Dean Thompson (played by Patrick O'Connor) is heading on a downward spiral now that his best buddy, Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) has been sent to prison on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings).

Dean still feels bad that he didn't go ahead and confess to his own part in helping Colby cover-up the murder of his stepdad, Ross Nixon.

And after being betrayed by longtime friend, Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) who testified against Colby in court, it's all getting a bit much for Dean.

After drinking himself silly at Salt and making a scene in public, a drunk and emotional Dean turns-up on ex-girlfriend, Ziggy Astoni's (Sophie Dillman) doorstep.

He makes a drunken confession that he needs her! WHAT will Ziggy do?
