Home and Away, Dean Thompson, Colby Thorne
7043 Dean (P.OCONNOR) and Colby (T.FRANKLIN) decide what to do

There's a life or death decision for Summer Bay copper Colby to make when he confronts Ross in a final showdown. Will he pull the trigger?

Armed with a gun, policeman Colby Thorne finally has his violent stepdad Ross Nixon where he wants him. But how far will Colby go to get even with the man who has made his life a misery and was responsible for the deaths of Colby's mum and dad, and the kidnapping of his teenage sister, Bella Nixon?

Normally, Colby's former River Boys buddy Dean Thompson is the loose cannon. But when Dean senses Colby is about to pull the trigger on Ross, he desperately tries to talk the copper out of doing something he'll regret in the name of revenge. Does Colby really want to be sent to prison just after he's been reunited with Bella and married Chelsea Campbell?

But will Dean's words be enough to prevent a SHOCK turn of events?

Meanwhile, Willow Harris has been rushed to hospital back in Summer Bay after being shot by Ross. As Willow remains in a critical condition, Sergeant McCarthy arrives and starts asking some questions about what happened on Colby and Chelsea's wedding day when Ross, disguised as a limo driver, kidnapped Chelsea, Bella and Willow.
