Feeling more than a little sad and sorry for herself on her 21st birthday, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) is in anything but the mood to celebrate.
And, really, who can blame her?
Not only is the young mechanic’s marriage to Brody (Jackson Heywood) well and truly history, but Brody is now parading his love for Simone (Emily Eskell) about town.
WATCH! Home & Away Rebound! Is Ziggy moving on too fast?
“Anyone would feel miserable being cheated on and dumped by their husband – and right before their 21st birthday,” says Sophie. “Ziggy is sure that she couldn’t feel any lower than this.”
But could Ziggy really be ready for a new love – and none other than Dean (Patrick O’Connor)? Certainly, it seems the beautiful blonde is acting impulsively when she plants a passionate kiss on the River Boy!
Earlier, a well-meaning Dean does his best to cheer Ziggy up on her birthday by surprising her with drinks and a cupcake at the caravan park.
“Dean is really trying to make the effort in a very ‘Dean’ way,” says Sophie. “I think Ziggy really appreciates his efforts and his being such a good mate to her.”
But Dean is taken completely aback when, after an evening of laughs and a drink or two too many, Ziggy suddenly pulls him in for a lip-lock. How will he react?
Meanwhile, hot on the heels of Ziggy’s shock move, we see that Willow (Sarah Roberts) may also be harbouring secret feelings for Dean.
Indeed, Willow is clearly not only caught off-guard, but is struck by a case of the green-eyed monster when Dean confides in her, telling Willow that Ziggy kissed him.
Cue an intriguing new love triangle!
