Colby Thorne tries to keep his cool when his boss, Sgt McCarthy, calls him in for questioning about the day his stepdad Ross Nixon disappeared.
The policeman is convinced he’s talked his way out of trouble for now, and Sgt McCarthy still has no idea that Colby shot Ross dead and his best buddy Dean Thompson helped him bury the body!
However, Colby begins to worry how long he can cover-up the murder after he discovers Dean has cracked and confessed all to his ex-girlfriend Willow Harris…
Worried about Dean’s welfare, as he struggles with the guilt of what he helped Colby do, Willow decides to call someone who can tough talk Dean through his crisis. But who?
Meanwhile, Bella Nixon is having a tough time at Summer Bay High. Having missed out on going to school while she was on the run with her dodgy (and now dead) dad Ross, the teenager struggles to understand most of the learning.
When her classmates start making fun of her, Bella snaps and announces she’s done with school!
Can school principal Maggie Astoni and Bella’s brother Colby convince her to give Summer Bay High another try?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
