Karen Thompson (played by guest star Georgia Adamson) is reeling from the revelation that she has a young grandson, Jai Simmons on Home and Away (1:15pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

But her happiness is short-lived after her son, Dean (Patrick O'Connor) awkwardly reveals that Karen is not allowed to see Jai, because of her past troubles.

Dean will lose his own access to Jai if he goes against the wishes of Jai's mum, Amber.

John Palmer (Shane Withington) steps in as a friend, when he finds Karen upset about the situation involving Jai.

Karen feels the weight of her past mistakes weighing heavily on Dean.

She doesn't want to do anything to jeopardise the relationship between Dean and Jai.

But being shut-out of her own grandson's life is all a bit too much to bear.

Can John provide some advice to boost Karen's spirits?

Felicity is desperate to drag the couple into the city, to get the party started.

How will they gently break the news that they already have plans for a romantic getaway?
