On Home and Away, Mackenzie Booth (played by Emily Weir) is having financial difficulties.
Debt is weighing heavily on the restaurant owner’s shoulders.
To make matters worse, Mackenzie’s well-intentioned brother, Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor), has sought assistance from their despised father, Rick Booth.
However, businessman Rick has simply chuckled at Mackenzie’s plight, leading Dean to realise that he has only made matters worse.
Mackenzie’s stress levels are high, and she’s running out of patience.
A cancellation of a booking threatens to drive her over the edge.
And she feels betrayed when she learns that Dean and Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich), the bartender, have been discreetly probing her financial problems.
Mackenzie finds herself in a bind and considers selling the restaurant to her father.
However, not before firing one of her present employees!
Is Ryder about to pay a price for eavesdropping on Mackenzie’s finances?
With Bella Nixon, Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett) is overstaying her welcome (Courtney Miller).
Since the death of her stepfather, Ari, Chloe has tried to escape life at the Parata mansion.
As a result, she’s been hanging on Bella, a friend, for emotional support.
But now that Chloe is always around, Bella can’t seem to have a moment to herself!
Bella finally has had enough and tells Chloe that she must return home and face her family.
Will Chloe, on the other hand, pay attention?
After learning that her estranged father has died, Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) puts on a brave face.
Jasmine does not appear to be concerned in the least.
Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) and Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger), Jasmine’s boyfriend and landlady, are both annoyed by her no-nonsense attitude as she goes about her business as normal.
Will Jasmine realise she hasn’t entirely dealt with her sentiments towards the man who abandoned her as a child when she has a heart-to-heart with Cash’s sister, Felicity (Jacqui Purvis), about how she dealt with her father’s death?
