As Dean slowly continues to recover, he decides it's time to start helping others, turning his attention to Bella Nixon, who's also been struggling to find a purpose (via TV Week).

Dean admits to Bella that he misses surfing, just as she misses her photography, saying he would do anything to get back to where he was before the accident.

When Bella agrees that it might be time for her to follow her own dreams again, Dean is buoyed by her optimism and decides to take his own advice.

Later, determined to push forward with his recovery, Dean tries standing on his surfboard again – only to collapse in agony.

Is Dean's collapse a case of too much too soon, or has he ruined his chances of returning to the waves for good?

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
