Marilyn returns to Bay

Little ray of sunshine Marilyn may have clip-clopped back into the Bay but she's dragging a dark cloud with her.

Just who was the blood-soaked amnesiac she discovered at the roadside? Well, it turns out it was Aden's estranged brother, Justin.

The mystery deepens when it turns out that Justin was involved in a car crash along with an unknown passenger, who has subsequently vanished. And why was Justin covered in blood when he was barely injured?

Meanwhile, Xavier moves in to the farm after falling out with Gina. But what is he hiding in his secret shoe-box? Marilyn moves in with Alf and Miles, but the guys are not impressed when she tries to impose her healthy eating regime on them.

Finally, still troubled by the secret he is keeping from Leah, Elijah considers leaving the Bay.


Sad Laurel looks for revenge

After struggling through the week with the memory of the ordeal he endured due to the machinations of the sinister Sally, Ashley reaches his breaking point.

Laurel is concerned with her husband's behaviour and when Sandy encourages her to confront him head on, she asks Ashley what is troubling him.

The priest breaks down and tells her what happened, and while Laurel is shocked, she pulls herself together, intent on not letting Sally destroy their marriage.

Dragging him to the police station, Laurel supports Ashley as he makes a statement. However, she struggles to cope as he begins to recount what happened, and vows that Sally won't get away with her actions.

When Viv reveals that she saw Sally in Hotten, Laurel turns up at her flat and forces her way in. She is shocked when Sally claims that she is pregnant and horrified when she sees the crazed woman has a shrine to Ashley in her home.

Laurel loses her calm and the two women begin to struggle on the balcony, moving dangerously close to the edge.

With everything that Sally has done over the past months, just how far will Laurel go to protect her family?


In River City, Innes agrees to go on a date with Jennifer's friend Beth - and despite his usually overconfident manner, he's oddly nervous about it. Nevertheless, the pair are soon locking lips and everything is going swimmingly, until he does a runner. Jennifer wants to know what's going on and is surprised by his explanation.


All change

Jason's life goes from one extreme to the other this week.

When his divorce papers arrive, he realises he's free to start a new life with Tina.

However, his life changes when he has a go at Nick for kissing Tina, splits with the raven-haired Kabin worker, quits his job, gets drunk and has an accident which leaves him with partial memory loss - he's 16 left believing he and the divine Tina are still an item.

Meanwhile, Nick and Audrey advise David to stop interfering with witnesses, and Gail is shocked when he tells her he visited the Lakes and risked her freedom.

Elsewhere, Graeme comes to the rescue when Aadi gets locked out of the flat on the balcony two floors up.

It's happy families


Raymond wants to be a foster parent. We know he's been down in the dumps lately but is bringing children into his life the way to snap him out of his slump?

Eileen doesn't believe it is. When he asks her to foster with him, she wastes no time telling him what she thinks of the idea - it would be a disaster, particularly as they didn't exactly do a great job first time around with their own kids. But when their neighbours also question his suitability as a foster parent, she leaps to his defence. Could she change her mind after all?

Jennifer decides the perfect way to raise some cash would be to organise a talent contest.

Big Bob reckons it will provide him with the perfect opportunity to prove he isn't like Molly, until nerves begin to get the better of him.


Old face returns

Australian soaps have an annoying habit of introducing a character, allowing us to get used to one actor playing them, then getting somebody else to portray them later on.

It happens again this week, when Steph's stepdaughter Summer Hoyland turns up out of the blue after being expelled from her posh music school.

The last time we saw her, she was a cute little blonde-haired poppet. Now she's got a completely different head - and nobody on Ramsay Street seems to have noticed. There's little wonder Zeke doesn't recognise his old friend when he first claps eyes on her.

Steph herself finally turns up after doing a runner following her night with Dan. She has big hugs and smiles for everyone - except poor old Lucas.

As we already know, she only has bad news for him - but does she have the guts to come clean yet?

Silly Billie holds up Phil

The Mitchells fight back when an armed Billie attempts to rob them


Do you remember when Carol disapproved of Billie's romance with Whitney, not because they were practically related, but because she feared Bianca's ward would be a bad influence on him? Well, it seems she was right to worry about her son being led astray - but she's been focusing her attention on entirely the wrong person.

OnMonday, all Whitney wants is for her boyfriend to join her for a meal at the Argee Bhaji, but he has other plans after his 'crew' discovers he didn't really get rid of the gun, and put pressure on him to rob the Vic.

That evening,Carol gets a shock when she comes out of the toilets at the pub to find her son holding Phil Mitchell up at gunpoint, but luckily Billy Mitchell keeps his wits about him, and tackles the lad.
