Home and Away's Willow Harris has agreed to leave Summer Bay with her girlfriend Alex Neilson, but it may not be her final decision.
The future of the popular couple has been thrown into question on Australian screens this week, as Alex (Zoe Ventoura) has been offered a new position at a hospital in Queensland.
As a locum doctor, Alex regularly has to move with her job and always knew that having to leave Summer Bay would be a strong possibility eventually.
Thursday's episode on Channel 7 in Australia (February 13) saw Willow consider her own future after Alex had invited her to come to Queensland with her.
Willow wasn't sure about leaving her job, family and friends in the Bay, but was also understandably reluctant to let her relationship with Alex become a long-distance one.
Meanwhile, Willow's friend Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) reacted badly to the possibility of losing her.
Speaking to Alex in private, a meddling Dean couldn't resist interfering by suggesting that she was asking too much by inviting Willow to leave.
Later, Willow finally made her decision by telling Alex that she wanted to follow her heart by joining her when she leaves for Queensland.
Dean once again made his displeasure clear when Willow shared the news with him, casting a shadow over their happy plans for the future.
Despite Willow's future path seeming clear, it's no secret among Home and Away fans that Sarah Roberts – who plays her – is still filming with the show. Could Alex still end up making the big move without Willow?
Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 in late March.
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
