When the day of the surf competition arrives, Dean (Patrick O’Connor) is under pressure to win so that he can take River Jarvis (River Jarvis) to Movie World. Amber (Madeleine Jevic) is privately concerned about the future of her relationship while Jai cheers him on from the sidelines.
Amber had been introduced to the thought that she might be second best to Ziggy (Emily Weir) not long previously, during a heart to heart with Mackenzie (Emily Weir) (Sophie Dillman). Mac, irritated by her own recent misfortune, had stated that she was second place for Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) and that no one should accept second place.
Ziggy later says it’s fantastic to see Dean back in the water as she prepares for her turn in the waves, because they’d always planned to travel to contests together. Amber’s concerns grow, reaching a pinnacle when Ziggy and Dean are declared the winners.
Amber runs across Tane (Ethan Browne) and the two make light of the fact that neither of them is a player any longer. Tane is jovial, and he claims that he and Ziggy are inseparable. Amber’s suspicions are heightened when she offers to compete with him, as he had intended with Ziggy, and he laughs her off, claiming she doesn’t even surf.
Amber asks Tane if he truly believes his connection with Ziggy is solid when Dean is called up to take photos beside Ziggy as the winners. Tane frowns when he watches Ziggy and Dean together and later confronts Ziggy, asking why she and Dean aren’t still together.
If Ziggy wants to retain her new relationship, would she have to admit to Dean’s part in Ross’ death as the cause for their breakup?
