Between Tane and Ziggy, there’s an obvious spark, and we’re not just talking about their garage job!
But is she going to take a gamble on a new love or slip back into the arms of Dean?
Tane can sense the walls closing in after another near run-in with Leon (Will McNeill) and his band of thugs.
Not only have his brother Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), nephew Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) and Mac (Emily Weir) been pulled into his mess by his illegal actions, also his manager and co-worker Ziggy (Sophie Dillman)!
Tane is feeling very emasculated at this stage and not himself.
He doesn’t feel so much for himself and where his life has started, with all his run-ins with Ari and wanting to appease him, doing his hardest to lead a cleaner life, and not being able to communicate his feelings for Mackenzie for obvious reasons,” Ethan tells TV WEEK.”
As she is aware of his feelings for Mac and promised to support him, Ziggy feels bad for Tane. She is the sort of person who would give a fair shot to others without questioning their background.
Leon backed off after promising to do a last job to pay off the $25K prescription debt, but Mac was not persuaded.
By handing over the keys to her Porsche, she arranges to meet Leon and pay off the loan.
With his girlfriend, Ari is livid, while Tane’s shame eats him up inside…
Tane tries to do a good deed and arrives with pizza and beer on her doorstep, recognizing how overworked Ziggy is in the garage.
The mechanic is pleased and they talk for the night.
Ziggy provides the sofa as a place to sleep as the hours wear by the offer greeted with an intense Tane stare.
Before something happens, they all easily pull away from the moment…
“There’s chemistry, of course,” teases Ethan.
“It seems that Tane and Ziggy are bantering quite well and getting a joke.”
Ziggy’s mind races the next day with concerns about Tane.
Is there more on the cards than friendship?
Before she can figure out, Dean arrives on her doorstep, intoxicated and angry.
He’s just watching his best friend go to court, and he doesn’t want to risk Ziggy either.
The rejection that strikes Dean like a ton of bricks advises Ziggy to sleep it off. Before Ziggy can stop him, he stumbles into his car and speeds off.
Ziggy reprimands herself and runs to Salt for how she treated the case, but he’s not there.
She scours the sands of Summer Bay to locate him, with Tane’s help.
They finally noticed his car on the side of the road.
Dean is bent over the wheel and asleep!
Is he going to be fine?
