Neighbours policeman Mark Brennan gets dumped by Roxy Willis next week as their relationship turns toxic.
Mark (Scott McGregor) pushes Roxy too far by treating her badly as their casual fling continues – and even his own family are appalled by his behaviour.
Next week's episodes see Roxy (Zima Anderson) try to change her wild ways in the hope of building up a stronger connection to Mark.
Dismayed that Mark isn't taking their romance seriously, Roxy starts dressing more conservatively and tones down her outrageous behaviour on their dates.
Mark is surprised by the new sophisticated Roxy as they meet up for a wine-tasting event at The 82. Even though Roxy is trying her best, Mark grows irritated by the act that she's putting on.
After a few too many drinks, Mark lets his grumpy behaviour get the better of him, crossing the line by dishing out numerous small insults aimed at Roxy.
Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) disapproves of Mark's cruel behaviour as she watches on, but he later gets even worse by publicly telling Roxy to stop trying so hard as he could never be in a serious relationship with her.
The next day sees Mark receive a dressing-down from Chloe, who lets him know that he's firmly in the wrong.
Mark hopes to get back in Roxy's good books by giving her flowers, but after some wise advice from Sheila Canning and Harlow Robinson, she puts him in his place by ending their relationship.
Later, Mark tells Chloe that he feels lost and doesn't know what he wants anymore. However, he soon has even more to worry about when he receives a disturbing phone call from his brother Tyler – their mum Fay has gone missing.
