Home and Away, Mackenzie Booth, Dean Thompson

Mackenzie wants to bring her and Dean's dad Rick down. Will Dean agree to go after his rich long-lost father and get what he's owed?

Dean Thompson (played by Patrick O'Connor) has only just met his long-lost half-sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) on Home and Away (opens in new tab). But the siblings have already discovered they have a mutual enemy: their former footballer dad, Rick Booth.

Mackenzie now wants Dean to help her get revenge on their hated dad, ruin his political campaign and get what they deserve.

But when Mackenzie mentions Dean's mum Karen Thompson, who is still in hospital being treated for her mental health problems, he quickly shuts her down and realises his best buddy Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) has been blabbing to Mackenzie about his personal business.

Unimpressed, Dean stomps off to confront the pair...

Later, Mackenzie, who is in a spin over her hateful feelings towards Rick, seeks comfort with Colby and the new friends unexpectedly find themselves kissing...
