Awkward! While studying together on a school assignment, Raffy gets the wrong idea and tries to make a move on ex-boyfriend Ryder on Home and Away!
Raffy Morrison (played by Olivia Deeble) and Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich) have sort of made peace since their break-up on Home and Away.
However the teenagers find themselves thrown together again today, when they must partner-up to work on an English assignment for school.
Although things are totally awkward between the pair at first, Ryder and Raffy eventually start to enjoy each other's company and it's almost just like old times.
At least that's what Raffy thinks, since she misreads the signs and tries to kiss Ryder.
Feeling rejected and humiliated, Raffy runs off. But she soon discovers if she bails on the English assignment then both her and Ryder's results will be effected. What will Raffy do?
Meanwhile, Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) is feeling down-in-the-dumps after her latest bust-up with stubborn brother Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) and wonders why she bothers at all.
However, all might not be lost when Mackenzie attempts to bond with Dean over the one thing they do have in common: surfing!
Unfortunately, things go horribly wrong when Mackenzie gets out of her depth and it all goes a bit Baywatch as Dean races into the sea to save her!
But the question is, after Mackenzie's near-drowning, will the squabbling siblings FINALLY put their differences aside and give their relationship another try?
Also, Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) is becoming increasingly frustrated that The Coastal News is branding stalker Tommy's attacker a monster, when she knows the attacker was her good friend, Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger).
Irene still won't tell her side of the story, since it brings back bad memories of when she was attacked years earlier.
After swearing boyfriend Justin Morgan (James Stewart) to secrecy, Leah opens up about Irene's plight. Can Leah find a way to help Irene before she truly comes unraveled?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
