Irene is at breaking point with her guilt over the attack on stalker Tommy on Home and Away. So she decides the time has come to confess all...
While teenager Bella Nixon (played by Courtney Miller) seems to be keeping her cool after what happened with her online stalker Tommy on Home and Away (opens in new tab), Bella's friend and landlady Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger) is close to breaking point.
Irene is rattled when an article in the Coastal News reveals the police are close to making an arrest in Tommy's case, and Irene fears it won't be long before the police knock on the door of the Beach House and find out she was the one who wacked Tommy over the head and then dumped his unconscious body outside the local hospital.
Despite Bella's pleas, Irene decides the time has come to tell the truth, and heads off to the police station prepared to confess ALL...
Horrified at the thought of Irene going to prison for trying to protect her, Bella realises she has no choice but to make a SHOCK confession of her own to her policeman brother, Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin)!
Colby reels when Bella comes clean about everything that happened with online stalker Tommy.
But as they race off to the police station, will they be in time to catch-up with Irene before she incriminates herself?
Elsewhere, it's the fallout from Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) discovering his best mate Colby has been secretly hooking-up with his sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir).
Dean's ex-girlfriend Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) tries to play peacekeeper between them. But Dean knows Colby has a history of stuffing up his relationships and he doesn't intent to be caught in the middle when Colby and Mackenzie break-up and suddenly hate each other!
Meanwhile, Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and his daughter Roo (Georgie Parker) are not impressed that Ryder broke-up with girlfriend Raffy Morrison (Olivia Deeble) without giving her a reason why.
Forced to face-up to his actions, Ryder apologises to Raffy for ending the relationship the way he did - but he just feels they don't have enough in common anymore.
Will the pair make peace and agree to remain just good friends?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
