The moment we've been waiting for is almost here, it's so tantalising close we can almost taste the salty Summer Bay sea breeze.
That's right, tonight the Home And Away finale is set to air and it's promising to deliver waves of emotion and drama, culminating in one shock ending.
With Colby behind bars, following his intense trial and the shock Witness X reveal, he finds himself trapped with the very criminals he put in there.
In tonight's season final we'll see Colby pacing the jail when a crew of inmates surround him. They recognise his face… it's one they'll never forget.

Speaking with Now To Love ahead of tonight's explosive season finale, the actor who plays Colby Thorne, Tim Franklin, spills on all the drama that's about to unfold.
"I knew when Colby decided to kill Ross that that drama was like… they let it rest and they let it rest for a long time. I knew it was on the back-burner and I knew it was going to come around, like a cheeky little storyline boomerang," he says with a laugh.
"I knew something was coming, but I didn't know how they were going to write it."
Colby may be keeping up a brave face behind bars but Tim says the reality couldn't be further from that for the ex-cop.
"He isn't coping well. He always knew it was a possibility to end up in that environment."
"We filmed it at an actual prison, which meant not a lot of acting was required, the place had such an intense energy."
"But Colby is constantly on edge, he's one word away from people finding out he's a cop, in a facility like that it's life-threatening," the actor explains.

Fans have been torn over Colby's storyline and whether he deserves to be behind bars for killing Ross.
So, what does Tim think?
"Lets be honest, Ross was a piece of work. He killed his parents, he kidnapped his sister and wife the day after his wedding, kidnapped his sister for most of his life."
"I don't even know what Tim would do in that situation! If someone killed my parents I can't be certain as to what I would do."
"I'm not saying his actions are justified, violence is the last thing that any of us should do but I think Colby was dealt a very hard hand and he just had to play it in the end."
As for tonight's final episode, Tim admits even he didn't see what was coming.
"I was really shocked," he teases.
Home And Away's season finale airs tonight on Channel 7 at 7pm
