Willow has only just started settling into a new chapter of her life in Home and Away, but it looks as if theres trouble on the horizon. Things are strained between Willow and her ex Justin, especially after he discovered that she only broke up with him after receiving an ultimatum from Nina.
Although she tries to move on from the situation and settle back down again with River Boy Dean, its not long before she finds herself in a bind. While Dean searches for a job, Willow finds herself struggling to cover the rent for both of them.
She steals some cash from the register at work, almost dropping Ryder in trouble when John counts the cash after his shift.
To make things worse, Jasmine catches Willow in the act, and asks her whats going on.
Taking pity on her, Jasmine offers her a loan, but despite being hassled for rent at the Caravan Park by Alf, she tries to make more cash by gambling her remaining finances. But her horses keep losing, and before too long, shes lost all her money.
Resorting to last measures, she sells some of the gym equipment at work and offers the cash to her friend.
However, after catching Willow in the act last time she stole, its not long before Jasmine discovers her bad behaviour again – this time by overhearing a conversation between Willow and Dean about her online gambling.
In Fridays episode, Jasmine approaches Willow, telling her shes an addict and needs help. But Willows guard is up, and she cant handle being confronted with her problems.
After being on edge for so long, Willow finally snaps – and slaps Jasmine, with a shocked Leah and Marilyn witnessing everything…
