Home and Away spoilers: Will Marilyn Chambers and John Palmer split-up?

Home and Away, Marilyn Chambers, Jett Palmer, John Palmer

As John Chambers continues to obsess over the welfare of son Jett, he decides to return to the city... with or without his wife, Marilyn...

Marilyn Chambers and her husband John Palmer are on shaky ground, after his angry outburst that Jett Palmer is HIS son and she should stop interfering.

But a hurt Marilyn confronts John down on the beach and makes it clear she's been a dedicated mum to Jett since the death of John's second wife Gina, who originally adopted troubled Jett.

John realises the error of his ways, but still can't stop obsessing about the welfare of injured soldier Jett, who has just moved into a place of his own in the city.

Convinced that Jett cannot cope alone now he's in a wheelchair following an explosion at his army base in Afghanistan, John announces he wants to move to the city to be closer to their son.

However, when Marilyn once again argues that Jett needs to be given the chance to live independently, and that their lives are in Summer Bay, will John listen? Or is he about to abandon Marilyn and move to the city without her?

Meanwhile, with Mason Morgan's trial date approaching, after he was caught by the police in possession of marijuana, his sister Tori is still refusing to testify on his behalf and explain to the court how Mason was actually helping his teenage sister Raffy Morrison with her epilepsy as part of a secret CBD oil trial.

Feeling responsible that Mason's fate is hanging in the balance and he could go to prison for buying illegal drugs to try and help with her medical conditon, can Raffy talk Tori around?
