Home and Away spoilers follow for Australian and UK viewers.
Home and Away will air tense scenes between newly-reunited couple Ziggy Astoni and Dean Thompson this week, as Dean continues to push Ziggy away following the serious car accident he was involved in.
Former couple Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and Dean (Patrick O'Connor) rekindled their romance over the summer, with Ziggy splitting with her boyfriend Tane Parata (Ethan Browne) and getting back together with Dean. But this second attempt at a relationship has been under strain already, following Dean's involvement in the shocking car crash.
While recovering from his injuries, Dean has been pushing Ziggy further away and has even told her to leave the Farmhouse, which is actually Ziggy's place, so that he can recover without her, convinced that he doesn't want her to see him in pain.
TV Week reports that, in scenes to air in Australia this week, Dean's sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir), who has taken over his care, will decide to step back, following encouragement from doctor Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner).
Dean continues to struggle to take care of himself, but he remains adamant that he doesn't want Ziggy to return. However, Mac has a secret plan up her sleeve to bring the couple back together.
"Mac goes behind Dean's back, telling Ziggy he's ready to have her back home," actor Patrick said. "When she returns, Dean is very surprised. And he's not the kind of guy who likes surprises."
Dean is quick to demand that Ziggy turn around and leave again but this time, Ziggy refuses. Pointing out that Dean is staying in her house, she insists that they need to talk things through – but stubborn Dean continues to declare that he doesn't want or need her help.
"There's a lot of inner struggle for Dean," said Patrick. "He's not 100 per cent sure he can go through the rehab, but knows that if he doesn't, he can't be the man Ziggy needs."
Ziggy makes it clear to Dean that she is in it for the long haul and that she wants to help him recover from his injuries. But with Dean remaining stubborn, is their newly rekindled relationship heading for the rocks already?
