Next week's Home and Away episodes see Robbo and Jasmine's marriage come under threat after tension over baby Grace, while Bella suffers a worrying health scare.
Here's a full collection of 14 storylines coming up.
1. Robbo struggles with baby Grace
Robbo is facing a big new challenge, as he adjusts to life with baby Grace while the youngster's mum Tori remains in a coma. During a vulnerable moment, Robbo admits to Marilyn that he's finding the experience of raising a child to be relentless.
Marilyn points out that Robbo has Jasmine around to help shoulder the hard work, but he insists that his wife is focusing on her career and that Grace is his responsibility alone. Irene overhears this conversation and is confused, knowing that this doesn't sound like Jasmine at all.
2. Jasmine confronts Robbo
Irene later pays a visit to Robbo and encourages him to let people help with Grace, rather than trying to do everything by himself. Jasmine is later baffled to find Irene babysitting Grace while Robbo is out for a jog.
Although it's good to see Robbo taking some time out for himself, Jasmine can't understand why her husband won't give her the same opportunity to help with Grace. In response, Robbo finally snaps – reminding Jasmine that she'd previously told him she didn't want children.
3. Jasmine works to reach a breakthrough with Robbo
Jasmine is stung following Robbo's outburst. She made her remarks about not wanting children months ago and can't believe that he's holding her to this now.
When the couple finally sit down for an honest conversation, Robbo expresses his fears that he's forcing Jasmine into a situation that she didn't want. Jasmine is adamant that she does want to help with Grace and be part of her life.
As Robbo finally lets Jasmine start pitching in with the baby, she hopes they've reached a positive turning point.
4. Bella sparks suspicion when she claims to be sick
When Bella announces that she doesn't feel well, plans for her to head into the city for a school excursion are called off. This means that Colby and Mackenzie also have to cancel plans to spend a romantic weekend together.
Mackenzie is bitterly disappointed to hear the news and wonders whether Bella is lying just to keep them apart. Things turn heated when Mackenzie outright accuses Bella of faking it. Even when Bella later suffers a collapse, Mackenzie can't help fearing that it's all part of her act.
5. The truth about Bella is revealed
Bella is admitted to hospital after her health scare and doctors confirm that she is genuinely ill. There is no record of Bella's immunisation history after her difficult upbringing, so the medical team suspect that this might be tetanus.
As Dr Alex points out how serious this is, Colby feels terrible for not taking his sister more seriously when she said she was feeling sick. In the heat of the moment, he takes his frustrations out on Mackenzie.
There's relief all round when doctors manage to stabilise Bella, but when Mackenzie pops in to apologise for the way she treated her, the troublesome teen refuses to accept her apology.
6. Ziggy feels threatened when Jade joins Summer Bay
An attractive backpacker called Jade arrives in Summer Bay and signs up for Dean's surfing classes, enjoying flirting with him. Ziggy isn't happy when she witnesses this and quickly warns Jade to back off from her man.
Dean struggles to understand Ziggy's hostile attitude, causing tensions between the couple. It's left to Willow to help sort things out, as she urges Dean to see things from Ziggy's point of view.
Thanks to Willow's intervention, Dean realises that Ziggy is worried history might repeat itself after she previously lost her husband Brody due to an affair.
7. Jade makes plans to stay in the Bay
Ryder is smitten with Jade after meeting her at Dean's surfing class. He offers to sort her out with a job at Salt so that she'll stick around in the Bay for longer.
When Ryder's plan pays off, Dean and Ziggy are troubled to hear that Jade is going nowhere. However, after some words of encouragement from her mum Maggie, Ziggy decides to have faith in Dean and trust that he wouldn't betray her like Brody did.
Dean also decides to nip the problem in the bud, warning Jade off when she tries to flirt with him again.
8. Willow and Alex hit another obstacle
After growing closer in the past few weeks, Willow wants to spend the night with Alex for the first time. Much to her surprise, Alex doesn't feel ready and suggests that things might be moving too quickly.
Alex explains that she's still hurt after a recent break-up, but isn't ready to discuss the full circumstances with Willow. Confused by Alex's reticence, Willow seeks advice from Jasmine and confides in her about her new relationship for the first time.
When Willow seeks out Alex again, there's no easy progress for the pair as Alex once again expresses fears that Willow is merely using her as an experiment.
9. Alex asks for a promise that Willow might not be able to keep
Alex later takes a more honest approach with Willow by finally opening up about her recent heartbreak. She explains that she has only ever had one long-term romance and has been struggling since it ended recently.
Alex is reluctant to leave herself vulnerable to the same kind of hurt again, so urges Willow to think long and hard about whether she really wants a relationship with her. Alex warns that if Willow is just going through a passing phase or feels unsure at all, it's better to end things now.
Later on, Willow admits to Alex that she can't make a promise not to hurt her as nobody knows what might happen in the future, but she still wants them to take that leap of faith. Both confirm that they already care deeply for each other and they agree to give the relationship a chance.
10. Ben panics over his business
After being cleared of the criminal charges he was facing, Ben starts to get his life back on track by re-opening the board shop. However, business on his first day proves to be slow and he feels stressed about the worrying situation.
Later, Maggie finds Ben on the verge of a panic attack as he frets about the business potentially failing. Maggie goes through relaxation techniques with Ben and insists on taking him to see Alex. As the dust settles on the eventful day, Ben starts to feel more relaxed about the situation.
A few days later, business starts to pick up for Ben and he also feels that his anti-depressants are having a positive impact. His relationship with Maggie is back on track too, which leads to them passionately kissing and heading to the bedroom.
11. Tori remains a cause for concern
Tori is still in a coma after the health scare she suffered following baby Grace's arrival. Justin is struggling to cope with the sad situation, but Leah tries to take his mind off things by suggesting that they should spend the day with Ava.
Justin continues to receive updates on Tori from the hospital, but there is no change in her condition. With the family in different states, it's all becoming too much.
Leah suggests that Justin should take a trip with Ava and Mason to see Brody and Raffy, allowing the Morgan family to be together once again. Justin agrees and looks forward to feeling less isolated for a while.
12. Leah comes to a realisation
As Justin heads off on his road trip with Ava, Leah can't help feeling troubled. When she confides in Irene, we find out what's bothering her.
Leah explains that she promised herself she'd never fall for another guy after her relationship with Zac, but now realises that she's starting to fall in love with Justin. Even though this should be a good thing, the feeling scares her.
13. Marilyn continues to struggle
Marilyn is facing a difficult time too, as she misses having Raffy around and can't help feeling over-invested in the Morgan family's current troubles. Things get worse when Maggie mentions that Raffy is starting a new school – something that Marilyn had been unaware of.
Marilyn confides in John that, while she's happy about Raffy moving on, she's starting to feel like they're not important to her anymore. Now that Raffy is already forgetting to tell them things, she worries that it won't be long until they lose contact completely.
John is uneasy over how Marilyn feels so lost and empty without Raffy and Jett in the Bay.
14. Alf and Martha return with some news
Alf and Martha return from their road trip and wait for the right time to announce some happy news – Martha will be moving into Summer Bay House for good.
This gives Leah food for thought over her own living arrangements as she considers moving into the Morgan house on a more permanent basis. However, she struggles to find the right moment to bring it up, as Justin is downcast over Ava going back to live with her mum.
Leah feels sidelined by Justin at this difficult time, so announces that she's going to pack up her things and move back to Alf's. Realising he has messed up, Justin assures Leah that he could have stayed in the city near Ava and Tori, but he came back for her. Justin asks Leah to move in and they finally seem to be on the same page.
