Completely stunned to have come face-to-face with a crossbow-wielding Bella (Courtney Miller), Colby (Tim Franklin) and Dean (Patrick O’Connor) are even more shocked when the traumatised 16-year-old fires a warning arrow at them.
"Colby is absolutely the enemy to Bella," confirms Courtney. "She really does love her dad, but has no idea how destructive he’s been in what he’s told her about Colby.
"So when Colby – someone she has been told for six years is evil - now rocks up, she’s completely terrified. She puts on a very brave front to protect herself."
When Bella suddenly runs off into the bushes at the derelict property, Colby - well aware that his dangerous step-father Ross could appear at any moment – pleads with his younger sister to reveal her hiding place.
But as Colby inches closer to Bella, he suffers a nasty injury. Will he be okay?
Back in the Bay, a worried Chelsea (Ashleigh Brewer) tells Willow (Sarah Roberts) that Colby did not come home last night. While Willow tries to cover for Colby and Dean, it’s clear Chelsea is not buying her story. Will an anguished Willow break her promise to Colby and reveal his true whereabouts to Chelsea, who is fast putting two and two together?
Meanwhile, John (Shane Withington) – still furious about Ben’s (Rohan Nichol) victory with the Surf Club board - continues to do everything he can to make Ben’s life as difficult as possible. Indeed, John intends to keep watching Ben like a hawk while construction of Ben’s much-anticipated new board shop gets underway.
Keen to help her husband, Maggie (Kestie Morassi) reaches out to Alf (Ray Meagher), asking him to act as mediator between the two feuding men.
But will the Summer Bay veteran – a man not exactly known for his diplomatic skills either – only succeed in making matters worse?
