Home and Away

How does she know Dean and Colby?

By Tamara Cullen
Home and Away has always been known for its unexpected twists and turns as characters come, go and cause a whole lot of drama in-between.
And the latest newcomer is no different - in fact, in scenes this week, we get our first look at The Bay's newest local, and our favourite characters best prepare themselves for her.
So how does the fresh-faced Amber make her entrance? TV WEEK found out...
With his marriage on the rocks and his health fragile, John is being irascible and difficult.
John (Shane Withington) has managed to drive away every candidate to provide the home-care he requires after suffering a stroke.
It leaves his wife Marilyn (Emily Symons) at her wits' end – that is, until Amber (Madeline Jevic) arrives.
Who is the inquisitive Amber? (Channel Seven)
She's bold, witty and won't take no for an answer. Marilyn hires her on the spot.
John, however, won't be ignored and corners her into an argument that causes Amber to storm out.

At Salt, Amber cools off and starts to explore Summer Bay.
Walking nearby is Dean (Patrick O'Connor), who instantly recognises her.
But before he has a chance to hide, Amber dashes over to say hello. It's clear they have history.
Later, Dean rushes to find Colby. But Amber comes across him first – and is far from happy to see him.
How do they know each other? And what has caused her to be so angry?
