Home and Away spoilers follow from Monday's Australian episode, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.
Home and Away's Angelo Rosetta has decided to focus on Dean Thompson as he desperately searches for proof in the Ross Nixon murder investigation.
Angelo (Luke Jacobz) has been searching for answers over Ross's murder for several weeks now, but has struggled to move forward due to Colby, Dean, Willow and Bella's strict pact of silence.
Monday's episode in Australia (October 5) saw Angelo change tactics after getting nowhere with his enquiries so far.
Angelo decided that it was worth spending some time convincing Dean (Patrick O'Connor) to help with the investigation, after realising that he was likely to be protecting Colby's dark secrets.
When Angelo spoke to Alf Stewart and John Palmer about Dean's history with his Mangrove River friends, Alf refused to give any information away. John, however, happily gossiped about the strong bonds of friendship between Dean and the others.
Angelo was also later intrigued when he saw Dean spending time with his young son Jai, who'd just spent the night in hospital after being diagnosed with a middle ear infection.
Confronting Dean while he was at work at the board shop, Angelo demanded a quiet word. For the first time, Angelo then spoke openly about his belief that Colby was Ross's killer.
Angelo now wants to offer Dean a deal – leniency when it comes to his role in the cover-up, as long as he helps to bring Colby to justice.
The no-nonsense detective pointed out that this would help Dean in the long-run, allowing him to be around to watch Jai grow up. But will Dean be tempted enough to take the offer and betray Colby?
Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 at the end of the month.
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
