Next week on Home and Away, Susie's scam pays off as she flees from Summer Bay with thousands of dollars in stolen cash.
Elsewhere, Nikau is shocked to learn that Ryder and Chloe are now a couple, while Dean is determined to impress his family.
Here's a full collection of 13 big moments coming up.
1. Justin and Leah receive shocking news
Justin and Leah are excited about making a fresh start after handing over the $90,000 deposit for their new house. However, when Justin gets in touch with the real estate agent to get the keys, he's told that the house was not sold to them.
Justin and Leah report this baffling situation back to Irene and Marilyn, pointing out that they signed a contract and paid a deposit. Irene fears that Susie has conned the couple.
2. Susie is confronted by Justin and Leah
Justin and Leah are stunned as Irene voices her suspicions that Susie has scammed them out of their life savings. The couple head to the Palmer house to confront Susie, but she makes out that it's a simple error on behalf of the real estate agent and she'll sort it out.
Willow and Irene do some digging of their own and find Susie's image online alongside another alias – Imogen Simons. Irene is convinced that 'Susie' is another fake name and that she's a ruthless conwoman.
3. Susie attacks Irene
With the walls closing in on her, Susie prepares to make her getaway from Summer Bay. Her plans are interrupted when Irene arrives at the Palmer house, confronting her for conning Justin and Leah.
Susie has no time to waste, so she attacks Irene with a chloroformed rag and knocks her out. With Irene unconscious, Susie is able to do a runner with her ill-gotten gains.
Before she leaves town for good, Susie pulls over her car and runs over her own phone – full of missed calls from Leah and Justin – to ensure that nobody can trace her in the future.
4. Alf discovers another scam
John, Leah and Justin are all left devastated after Susie's sudden departure. Leah and Justin have lost their $90,000 deposit, while John has also been scammed out of his own savings.
Alf and Roo look through the Surf Club files and discover that the planned surf competition was another of Susie's scams. It dawns on everybody that Susie was seeking sponsorship money under false pretences.
John can't bear to be part of the Susie aftermath, so he resigns as president of the Surf Club. Meanwhile, Justin and Leah's relationship starts to come under strain as they deal with the reality of being conned.
5. John hides himself away
Alf and Roo need further information on the missing sponsorship money, but they struggle to get in touch with John, who's hiding himself away in embarrassment after Susie's departure.
Marilyn tries visiting John, who doesn't answer the door. She goes back to Alf and Roo, expressing fears that John could be incapacitated inside the Palmer house after his recent health issues.
The trio team up to break into the house, but by the time they get inside, the place is empty. Jett later calls Marilyn to let her know that John has come to stay with him for a few days – it seems that answers over the missing money will have to wait.
6. Ryder and Chloe talk things through
Chloe confides in Bella about her recent kiss with Ryder and how he has been cold towards her ever since. Bella is shocked to learn that Ryder has seemingly rejected Chloe, rather than it being the other way around.
Ryder is surprised when he hears that Chloe believes he has rejected her. He sets the record straight with Chloe that this wasn't his intention, which leads to another kiss between the pair.
7. Nikau struggles with Ryder and Chloe's romance
After officially becoming a couple, Ryder and Chloe speculate over how Nikau and Bella will react. Before they get a chance to share their news themselves, Nikau and Bella spot them kissing.
Nikau is overprotective towards Chloe following his discovery and doesn't approve of the new pairing. It's only after Bella intervenes that Nikau agrees to offer his blessing – on the condition that Ryder doesn't mess Chloe around.
8. Bella seeks answers from Willow
Nikau advises Bella to give Willow a chance to explain herself after the Witness X drama that sparked Colby's downfall. Bella approaches Willow and asks for a chat.
Bella pushes Willow to reveal the full story of how she became the key witness in Angelo's investigation. Willow reveals her side of the situation, explaining that she sacrificed Colby because she wanted to keep Bella and Dean out of prison.
After some further advice from Nikau, Bella decides to give Willow another chance and suggests they should hang out together.
9. Dean seeks reassurance from Amber
Dean and Amber have spent the night together after deciding to take a chance on becoming a couple again. When Willow finds out, she tries to warn Dean of the likely consequences for him if this reunion doesn't work out. She fears that Dean could lose access to Jai if it all goes wrong.
Amber finds out that Willow has warned Dean over the pitfalls of this potential romance. She promises Dean that nothing will change even if their relationship does turn sour. Satisfied, Dean invites Amber to move into his bedroom permanently.
10. Tane tries to reunite Ari and Mia
After coming out of his coma, Ari is surprised to learn that Mia stayed by his hospital bedside in recent days. He reminds Mia that their relationship was on the rocks before the hit and run incident. Mia admits that she realised how much she still cares about Ari after he got hurt.
Mia's biggest concern is that the Parata family's gangster enemies are still out there somewhere, despite the police promising that Paul, Leon and their associates are all in custody.
Tane steps in and tries to talk to Mia on his brother's behalf, insisting that the recent gang drama was not Ari's fault. Mia is won over and heads back to the hospital, where she confirms to Ari that she wants to reunite.
11. Dean feels the pressure
Jai is full of excitement over the upcoming surf competition, which Dean plans to compete in. The first prize is a family pass to Movie World, so the stakes are high for Dean to impress his son.
Dean is disappointed when he receives word that the competition may not take place at all following Susie's dramatic departure. He tries to keep the news from Jai as he doesn't want to disappoint him.
12. Christian lashes out after another mysterious death
Christian's confidence is knocked after another one of his patients passes away at the hospital. As a pattern seems to be emerging, the surgeon is told that the hospital may need to investigate. His arch-nemesis Lewis, who appears to be secretly causing the deaths, couldn't be happier that Christian's professional competence is being called into question.
After drowning his sorrows at Salt, Christian crosses paths with Lewis and punches him. The incident is witnessed by Jasmine and Tori, who are both horrified.
Tori later has to put her personal relationship to one side as she tells Lewis that he's well within his rights to report Christian's unprofessional behaviour to the hospital.
13. Mackenzie makes a decision over her pregnancy
Mackenzie continues to struggle with her decision over what to do about her pregnancy. She hopes for a sign from the universe to guide her choice – and she believes it has arrived when she walks in on Ziggy singing and dancing around the house.
Mac is struck by how carefree Ziggy seems and realises she wants the same for herself, so she's not ready to have a baby at the moment. She books an appointment at the clinic for the following week, but is still eager to keep Ari out of the situation.
