As he faces a tough round of physiotherapy, Dean Thompson (played Patrick O’Connor) is determined to go it alone, but his doctor Logan Bennett has other ideas in Home and Away (6.00pm - see our TV Guide for full listings).

When Dean had his first physiotherapy session, his girlfriend Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) arrived to find him struggling and in pain, but as she wondered if he needed more medication, he not only ordered her to leave but told the physiotherapist to do one, too!

Dean knows he’s got a tough time ahead of him and that it’s probably not going to be pretty, so he doesn’t want to his loved ones to see him going through it.

Following Dean’s meltdown, Ziggy grabs Logan and Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) from Salt and they head back to the hospital where they get a hostile reaction from Dean.

When Logan asks Dean about his medication, the patient snaps but the doctor is unfazed and downplays his behavior.

Dean notes that Ziggy has brought reinforcements, but tells them all that they need to go because the physio is something he needs to do on his own.

Logan, however, isn’t going anywhere and laughs off Dean’s attempts to get rid of him and tells him that he doesn’t give up on his patients so he’s stuck with him!

As the thick-skinned doctor spends more time with his patient and gives him food for thought with a story from his army days, will Dean eventually realise that he needs his loved ones around him as he continues on the road to recovery?

Later, at Salt, Mackenzie reiterates to Ziggy that she’s not interested in Logan and is glad that she turned him down for a date because she doesn’t need more drama in her life.

Ziggy, however, doesn’t believe her and it seems Logan doesn’t think she’s for real either because he’s left a coaster on the bar with his name and number on it, plus a message for Mackenzie to call him if she changes her mind!

Now that John Palmer (Shane Withington) is going to be the new owner of the garage, Leah Patterson-Baker (Ada Nicodemou) and Justin Morgan (James Stewart) discuss what they should do with the money they were going to use to buy the garage.

Leah tells Justin that it might be a good idea if he finished his business course and let Ziggy take over the garage while he’s gone. However, when he goes to speak to Ziggy, she blindsides him by asking for time off to look after Dean…
