In a panic, Dean storms down to the beach where Senior Constable Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) stops him in his tracks while the police are investigating.

Justin Morgan's (James Stewart) erratic behaviour continues as he attempts to beat his painkiller addiction.

Justin's girlfriend Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) is losing patience since he still won't take responsibilty for his assault on Stephen Tennyson (Bren Foster).

He just claims his temper got the better of him when he saw Leah and Stephen looking a bit too close for comfort.

But Justin gets put in his place when Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) warns him to start treating his garage employee and Tane's girlfriend Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) with some respect... or he'll be dealing with Tane in the future!

Will Tane's warning be a wake-up call for Justin to get his act together?
