Home and Away

Murder, a chemical attack and hot romances: These are Home and Away's biggest moments from 2021

The Bay more than delivered this year!

By Tamara Cullen

Tori and Christian tie the knot

Their love affair began like a romantic comedy – as Tori (Penny McNamee) fumbled through her feelings – and ended in a beautiful event filled with celebration and love. After just a few months of dating, Christian (Ditch Davey) popped the question.
But their trip down the aisle was almost derailed by a patient named Rachel (Marny Kennedy, below) who was seriously injured in a skydiving accident.
Believing he was destined to save Rachel, Christian pushed Tori away and postponed their special day.
In a tragic twist, Rachel died and Christian reassessed what was most important to him: Tori. The pair married in a simple backyard wedding alongside friends and family, before deciding to relocate to London with baby Grace.

Dean and Ziggy loved up

When Dean was badly injured, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman, below with Dean) realised her feelings for him had never left. She ended her relationship with Tane (Ethan Browne), but it wasn't all smooth sailing, as Dean's slow recovery left him dismayed and resentful.

Who knocked off Susie?

She was the charming real estate agent who conned her way to wealth. But in a special whodunnit storyline, someone wanted revenge, and Susie's (Bridie Carter, above with Shane Withington as John) body was found floating in the water.

Chemical attack at Salt

A busy gala is the perfect setting for a masked killer to strike. An unknown figure was seen slipping a drug into Tane's drink, causing him to collapse. The figure then released a toxic gas around him and left him to die.
