Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Next week's Home and Away episodes see Tane Parata struggle to escape his past, while Dean Thompson finally tells Ziggy Astoni the truth over Ross Nixon's murder.
Here's a full collection of 11 big moments coming up.
1. Tane is stabbed at work
Tane has made a strong effort to turn his life around in recent weeks, but his past comes back to haunt him when two dodgy guys arrive in the Bay. The pair have previously teamed up with Tane for criminal activities and now want to tempt him into carrying out another dodgy job.
Tane firmly refuses, but his old acquaintances aren't giving up so easily and menacingly follow him into Salt. When Tane tries to kick them out for causing a disturbance, one of the guys reacts with violence by breaking a glass bottle and stabbing him with it.
2. Tane is taken to hospital
Tane tries to put on a brave face in the immediate aftermath of the incident, telling Mac that the injury is just a scrape and there's no need to get the police involved. Mac can tell it's more serious than Tane is letting on, so she insists on taking him to the hospital for treatment.
The dramatic day takes another unexpected turn when Tane and Mac get trapped in an elevator together inside the hospital building. Mac suffers a panic attack as she's reminded of her involvement in the hospital siege a few months ago. As Tane kindly consoles Mac, will she see him in a different light?
3. Roo gets cold feet over dating Owen
Roo has arranged a date with Owen, who turns to Ryder for some advice on how best to impress her. However, when the moment comes for the date to begin, it all becomes too much for Roo.
Struck by Owen's physical similarity to the late Evan, an overwhelmed Roo gets cold feet and bails on the date before it even begins.
Owen is shocked as Roo rushes off, but he catches up with her again the next morning and makes it clear that he won't give up on their chance of happiness without a fight.
4. Owen tries to win over Roo
After giving Roo a few days' breathing space, Owen tracks her down and asks for a second chance at making a date work. Roo isn't sure whether to say yes or not, but ultimately takes Alf's advice to seize the moment and see how things go.
As Roo and Owen head to Salt together, Ryder is excited over this new pairing. Can Roo and Owen make things work?
5. Tori's new love interest arrives
When Tori meets Christian for the first time and witnesses his unorthodox bedside manner, there's an instant spark between them.
A few days later, once Justin's surgery has been fully confirmed, Christian leaves Tori flustered by making a personal visit to the Morgan house to check all is well.
As Justin goes in for the operation the next day, can Dr Green make a success of it?
6. Angelo tricks Irene
Angelo is as determined as ever to solve the Ross Nixon murder case but is frustrated by his lack of progress. However, he's intrigued when he overhears Irene talking to Bella in the Diner about her recent time away.
Angelo casually mentions this to Irene, who happily spills the beans about Bella's trip with Nikau. What Irene doesn't realise is that this directly contradicts the excuses Bella gave for her repeated no-shows at the police station for her scheduled interview. Angelo is now aware that Bella and Colby have both been lying to him.
7. Bella is hauled back in for questioning
Bella is horrified when Angelo confronts her unexpectedly, asking for her to return to the police station for another interview. Irene is also concerned when she realises the consequences of her actions, while Colby goes into a panic as he wonders how much Bella will reveal.
In the interview room, Bella is forced to change her story – confirming that she did go away with Nikau, but only because she was nervous about being asked traumatic questions over her father's murder.
Once Bella is released again, Willow calls the police station with a false tip-off about the Ross case, hoping that it will send Angelo on the wrong track for a while. She's relieved when Angelo heads off for a few days to pursue the lead, believing that it could have credibility.
8. Colby sleeps with Taylor
Willow puts pressure on Colby to end his dangerous liaison with Taylor, but he refuses to listen. Colby takes his plan further and meets up with Taylor in a motel, where they sleep together for the first time.
When they wake up together the next morning, Taylor barely feels guilty after weeks of being neglected by Angelo. But how would she feel if she knew about Colby's ulterior motive?
9. Dean breaks Ziggy's heart
Dean fights for his future with Ziggy by bombarding her with a list of reasons that she should move back into the pier apartment. Ziggy has deliberately kept her distance since Jai's arrival.
Ziggy eventually decides to give things another go and prepares to move back in, but everything changes for Dean when he discovers that Colby is still recklessly pursuing Taylor.
Dean decides that Ziggy is better off staying far away from the Ross-related dramas, so he leaves her confused and heartbroken by suddenly insisting that he doesn't want her back in the apartment after all.
10. Dean confesses everything
Dean struggles after sacrificing his happiness with Ziggy and later changes tactics, coming to see her at the garage for an important conversation.
Dean is ready to tell Ziggy the truth over Colby killing Ross – and his own role in the cover-up by helping to bury the body. But can Ziggy ever really forgive him for this?
11. John takes some time out
In the aftermath of his split from Marilyn and the positive progress he has made with his recovery, John is feeling bored and lonely. He begins to hassle some of the Summer Bay residents – including Alf, Jasmine and Irene – in a desperate bid for company.
John's strange mood also doesn't go unnoticed when he offers to pay for Amber and Jai's desserts at the Diner, which is far more generous than his usual attitude.
In the end, Alf instructs John to go and visit Jett in the city for a while to keep himself out of trouble.
