Home and Away

Home and Away's Dean goes to extreme lengths to clear his name after being framed for PK's death

''Dean is fuming that he's been framed.''

By Tamara Cullen
With the evidence stacked against him, Dean takes matters into his own hands this week. But how far will he go to prove his innocence?
In tense episodes of Home And Away, police are pressuring Dean (Patrick O'Connor) to confess after the bloodied wrench used to kill evil businessman PK (Ryan Johnson) was discovered in Ziggy's (Sophie Dillman) car.
He denies any knowledge of how it got there, but Dean's motives and ties to the River Boys make him the prime suspect.

But he knows who committed the violent crime – and can prove it.
"Dean is fuming that he's been framed," Patrick, 29, tells TV WEEK.
"He's hoping it will be relatively easy to get a confession out of Nathan, but if not, he's prepared to go to extreme lengths to get it."
Ziggy wakes next morning to find a note from him: "I love you. Please don't worry."

Dean, meanwhile, arrives at a run-down house. Inside, the River Boys stand over Nathan (Ryan Panizzi) who's bound to a chair and has clearly been beaten.
Dean orders him to talk, but Nathan refuses. Getting nowhere fast, Dean tries a gentler approach and unties him.
But when Ziggy's persistent calls interrupt his interrogation, Nathan makes a run for it.
Dean and the River Boys scour the junkyard for the fugitive. Nathan tries to take refuge under a rusty tractor, but is bowled over by Dean, who tries to get the upper hand, but struggles to pin him down.
Nathan fights back, reaching for a length of scrap metal... Watch out, Dean!
"It's always a blast filming Dean in his bad-boy mode," Patrick says. "There's nothing like getting the River Boys back for the action."
