Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Next week's Home and Away episodes see Dean Thompson and Ziggy Astoni's relationship become the latest casualty of the Ross Nixon murder investigation.
Meanwhile, Nikau Parata faces opposition after inviting his girlfriend Bella Nixon to move in.
Here's a full collection of ten big moments coming up.
1. Ziggy dumps Dean
Ziggy is shocked after Dean explained the whole sorry story of Ross's murder and his involvement. She can't believe that Dean has been keeping this secret for the entirety of their relationship.
Ziggy is also surprised when Willow admits that she has known the truth for a long time, which only makes her feel even more isolated. Dean is left in no doubt over where he stands when Ziggy declares that he isn't the guy she fell in love with, so she's ending their relationship.
2. Dean goes on the rebound
Dean drowns his sorrows at Salt after the sad break-up. He's quick to pursue his old flame Amber and they end up sharing a kiss.
Things look set to go even further back at the pier apartment, until Dean lets slip that he only split from Ziggy hours earlier. Amber realises that Dean is treating her as a rebound option and hastily leaves, making it clear that she's not interested in these circumstances.
3. Colby clashes with Dean
Colby is horrified when he finds out that Dean has confessed everything to Ziggy. As far as he's concerned, bringing someone else into the dark secret will surely only make their situation even more complicated.
Colby and Dean end up in a big argument over Ziggy's involvement, which is witnessed by a suspicious Angelo. Willow desperately tries to take control of the situation, taking Dean away for a few days so he can clear his head and stay out of trouble.
4. Justin has his surgery
Justin is brought into the operating theatre to remove the tumour from his spine. When Dr Green opens Justin up, he's shocked to see just how big and severe the growth is.
Dr Green brings Tori into the room to make a key decision as Justin's next of kin. As removing the full tumour would pose a significant risk of paralysis, Tori must give permission for them to proceed.
Knowing how worried Justin was about losing his mobility, Tori tells Christian to stop. All they can do is hope that Christian has removed enough – but the signs are looking good when he seems to be recovering well in the aftermath.
5. Tori kisses Christian
Tori is overwhelmed with relief that Justin's surgery seems to have been a success. She's full of gratitude towards Christian, now seeing how brilliant he is at his job.
Caught up in the moment, Tori takes a surprising step when she shares a lift with Christian at the hospital and kisses him. Could this be the start of something special?
6. Nikau confronts Colby
Bella struggles to cope with Colby's reckless behaviour when she catches him in an intense conversation with Taylor. She desperately wants her brother to end the affair with Angelo's wife, but he's determined to keep it going.
Bella ends up confiding in Nikau about Colby's antics. Nikau refuses to stand back and do nothing, so he heads over to the pier apartment and gives Colby some home truths about how his poor choices are affecting others. Colby doesn't take kindly to his interference and argues back.
7. Taylor is left disappointed
With Angelo back in town after a few days away, Taylor tries to get their marriage back on track. She's even willing to cool things off with Colby if she gets the responses she needs from Angelo.
Taylor confronts Angelo and urges him to prove his love for her, but his underwhelming responses fall flat and threaten to send her straight back to Colby.
8. Ari thwarts Nikau and Bella's next step
Nikau invites Bella to move into the Parata house so she can secure a much-needed escape from Colby. He extends this offer without consulting either of his uncles, which goes down particularly badly with Ari.
Ari isn't happy with the idea of Bella living with the family, believing that it'll give Colby an excuse to start hassling them again. Bella quickly realises that she's not welcome, crushing Nikau's hopes of having his girlfriend living with him.
9. Tane pushes Mac away
Tane continues to give Mac a frosty reception, complaining that it's too difficult having her around all of the time. He makes it clear that they're not friends and never will be.
Wanting to be respectful towards Tane's wishes, Mac decides that it's time to start looking for somewhere else to live, even though Ari wants her to move in permanently. She gets her opportunity when she consoles Ziggy over the split from Dean and decides to become her housemate at the Astonis' farmhouse.
10. Ryder gives Owen a warning
Roo's relationship with Owen continues to gather pace as they share a kiss and ultimately sleep together for the first time. Everyone is happy for the new couple, but Ryder quickly goes into protective nephew mode.
Ryder warns Owen that if he ever hurts Roo, he'll have him to deal with. Can Owen offer any reassurances?
