Having refused to join his aspiring politician father Rick (Mark Lee) in a press conference, Dean (Patrick O’Connor) tonight discovers he’s made himself a powerful enemy.
Watch a sneak peek at tonight's episode here...
But when Rick deliberately riles up Dean by insulting his son’s mother Karen (Georgia Adamson), the River Boy hits boiling point.
As a typical River Boy does, he loses his cool at his father.
“Dean’s furious,” says Patrick. “This is about as low as his father can go. You have to be really careful about how you talk to a guy about his mum - and Rick definitely crosses the line here.
"Their relationship has really hit another level.”
And as Patrick says, “No-one is more sacred to Dean than Karen and his girlfriend Ziggy (Sophie Dillman).”
But Dean’s about to find out he’s played directly into Rick’s hands.
“Dean lets his temper get the better of him in this moment, only to quickly realise what his actions have cost him,” reveals Patrick.
To see how it all unravels, tune in tonight, 7pm on Channel 7.
