Indeed, Brett continues to strong-arm Dean, letting him know in no uncertain terms that this robbery is happening with or without him.
What’s more, he says menacingly, if Dean doesn’t ‘come to the party’, Brett will be paying Willow (Sarah Roberts) a visit!
Faced with an impossible choice, Dean hatches an extremely risky plan to turn the tables on Brett.
But Dean’s scheme goes horribly wrong when he arrives at Salt after closing time to discover Ziggy and Brody enjoying some alone time. This clearly wasn’t part of the plan!
Before he has the chance to usher the pair out of the eatery, Brett and his thugs descend on the restaurant.
The only thing that Dean can do is hide Ziggy and Brody in the storeroom.
‘Dean knows that protecting them is just as important as not being found out by Brett, so he locks them up for their own safety,’ says Patrick.
‘Ziggy and Brody have been finding it hard to get any time on their own, living in the family house,’ says Sophie.
‘They’re finally alone when Dean barges in and pushes them into the storeroom and they have absolutely no idea what’s going on.’
As for Patrick, he loved every moment of taking part in the edge-of-your-seat scenes.
‘They were so much fun,’ he says with a laugh. ‘It was like playing cops and robbers!’
But will Ziggy and Brody’s hiding place be uncovered, with dire consequences for both the pair and for Dean?
