Home and Away

Home and Away gets steamy as Ziggy and Tane finally give into their feelings

''Ziggy has always been a sucker for the underdog.''

By Tamara Cullen
Lust, lies and loyalty are at the core of Home And Away's epic season finale this week.
But the question is: who finds happiness, and who's left to pick up the pieces of a broken heart?
Strap yourselves to your surfboard, because another wave of emotion is barrelling into Summer Bay.
The action begins at the local garage, where mechanic Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) is struggling to keep the business afloat.
She has stepped up in her boss Justin's (James Stewart) absence as he recovers from surgery.
Unfortunately, her new employee, Tane (Ethan Browne), decided to use the garage as a place to hide stolen goods – and this week, it becomes
the focus of a police operation.
"Ziggy has always been a sucker for the underdog and she wants to see the best in people. I admire that about her," Sophie, 27, tells TV WEEK.
"Unfortunately, it gets her into trouble when it comes to the law."

Ziggy tries to conceal the truth from Justin, who the police call to assist in the case, but Tane – who is now being blackmailed into committing a robbery with his brother Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) – confesses it was all his fault.
While his actions might be noble, his confession has inadvertently put Ziggy's job in jeopardy!
An angry Justin fumes at her for being so reckless and implies that the only reason Ziggy helped Tane is because she has feelings for him… not unlike how she and ex-boyfriend Dean (Patrick O'Connor) started dating.
Ziggy resents the suggestion and denies it… but is she lying to herself?
"She likes Tane as a person, and can see he's been struggling, so she wants to help. But in that friendship, she begins to develop feelings for him," Sophie says.
Ziggy heads to Salt to blow off steam and finds Tane drinking alone.
The pair quickly patch up their differences, their chemistry sizzling below the surface.

By the end of the night, Ziggy and Tane are tangled in the sheets, their desire getting the better of them.
"Ziggy tends to act first, think second in this situation, and she's drunk too much," Sophie says. "Whether she has feelings for him is yet to be determined."
The next day, her thoughts about the night before are interrupted by none other than Dean, who apologises for his inebriated behaviour earlier and begs for a second chance.
"I love you," he tells her on the beach. "Please think about it."
Ziggy is torn – she has always loved Dean, but Tane offers a fresh start, despite his criminal tendencies.
Who will she choose?
