However, it’s not long before Mackenzie’s brother Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor) finds out about the creep who is putting the squeeze on his sister.

Will the combined force of Dean and his policeman pal, Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) be enough to scare off Jason and send him packing from Summer Bay?
