Home and Away spoilers follow from this week's Australian episodes, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away has been airing a huge week in Australia, with the latest six episodes featuring the discovery of Ross Nixon's body, the return of Angelo Rosetta and a breakthrough for Jasmine Delaney's recovery.
Here are seven big questions we've been left with after the latest episodes.
1. Has Jasmine finally reached a turning point?
Jasmine made some positive progress this week after agreeing to undergo counselling. The local nurse started off by treating the sessions purely as a means to an end, knowing this was her best way to regain Tori's trust and get access to baby Grace again.
During her first appointment, however, Jasmine was surprised as hardly any of the questions focused on Grace. Instead, she was asked to address unresolved grief over the death of her fiancé Robbo, which had fuelled her previous abandonment issues.
Jasmine was given plenty to think about, as the counsellor suggested that she still needs closure over Robbo's death and this may be the underlying reason she became overly attached to Grace.
By the end of the week, Jasmine was fully embracing the sessions and accepted that she had a long way to go. But has she turned a corner?
2. Does Angelo already suspect Colby?
Angelo is back in Summer Bay to investigate the murder of Ross Nixon, which is bad news for Colby and his closest allies. 18 months on from Ross's murder, Colby thought that he had nothing to worry about, but the soap gods had other ideas.
When Angelo came face-to-face with Colby for an informal chat at Salt, he revealed that he'd already spoken to Colby's ex-wife Chelsea for her insight into the day that Ross disappeared.
Chelsea had made a telling comment about this being the day that her marriage ended – a secret reference to how she could never forgive Colby for committing a murder.
Angelo also ordered Colby to come down to the station for a more formal interview and sensed that he was making excuses when he claimed he wouldn't be able to remember much. With at least two clues already pointing to Colby's guilt, has Angelo already realised something is amiss?
3. Could Dean have implicated himself?
This week's episodes also reminded us of Dean's role in the aftermath of Ross's murder. In early 2019, Dean struggled with his guilty conscience after helping Colby to destroy evidence and bury Ross's body. Taking some dodgy pills to help him sleep, Dean started to sleepwalk back to the bushland where Ross was buried.
Well over a year later, Dean started to panic that he could have inadvertently left some evidence behind during these bizarre night-time visits. Colby assured him that any clues would be long gone by now, but could this have been wishful thinking?
4. Whose side will Amber be on?
Summer Bay newcomer Amber recently made a bold decision as she chose to let go of her hatred towards Colby. Amber will never be able to forget that Colby left her brother Jai to die, after an accident a few years ago. Despite this, she has realised that she doesn't want to waste her energy on arguing with Colby anymore.
Meanwhile, when Amber heard the news that Ross's body had been discovered, she made it very clear that she had no sympathy for Bella's dad – correctly branding him an abusive bully.
This has left us intrigued over where Amber's loyalties will lie as the murder case continues to make waves in the Bay. Would she be happy to see the tables turn on Colby, or would her resentment towards Ross leave her siding with old friends?
5. Can Tane keep his promise to Nikau?
After weeks of dating casually, Ari and Mackenzie decided to progress their relationship by taking things more seriously. They got to know each other better on a romantic fishing trip, which they followed up with a meal at Salt.
This was all bad news for Ari's brother Tane, who also has feelings for Mackenzie. During a private chat with his nephew Nikau, Tane admitted that Mackenzie is the first woman he could ever see himself settling down with.
Nikau warned off Tane and was relieved when his uncle promised not to stand in the way of Ari and Mackenzie's happiness. We have a feeling this love triangle is only just beginning, though – can Tane really keep his promise?
6. Will Marilyn turn her life around?
Marilyn faced an emotional week after moving in with the Stewart family. The Summer Bay favourite is now seeking a new direction after splitting from her husband John, who recently asked her to move out.
Settling into her new home wasn't easy for Marilyn, who tried her best to avoid Alf, Roo and Ryder as much as possible.
Despite her close friendships with the Stewarts, Marilyn felt like a burden – until Alf stepped in with some home truths and assured her that she was entirely welcome. But still feeling lost in life, can Marilyn start to move forward?
7. Is Justin okay?
Can a soap character ever have a headache that's genuinely just a headache? It's debatable, so we also have to mention the references to Justin feeling unwell in two different episodes this week.
Justin told Leah that he was struggling with head pain, leaving her to wonder whether he might need glasses.
Later, the pain seemed to have spread to Justin's back. Let's face it, these things are rarely written into the scripts for no reason – could Justin be about to face a health issue?
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
