Dean and Willow have been in a messy situation for a while now, but its about to get much worse. After the card skimming operation at Salt, which resulted in the pair knocking Alf to the ground and Willow calling the ambulance, they thought the incident was behind them.
But after hearing Willows emergency call, Colby takes her down to the station and tells her shes being charged with assault. Witnessing the scenes, Dean is alarmed, and insists hes to blame for the crimes.
While Willow returns to live with the Morgans and recover from her gambling addiction, Dean realises his life is a mess. Not only does he have nowhere to live, hes broke and waiting to appear in court.
When he appears in the Diner, Irene and Alf confront him over the assault and tell him hes no longer welcome. Later on, he uses the last of his money to buy a beer, and Robbo checks in with him. Taking pity on him when he sees Dean has no plans for moving forwards, Robbo hands him some cash and tells him he should have a decent nights sleep in a motel.
Reluctantly taking the money, Dean heads to rest – but things dont get clearer for him. In the morning, he packs up his belongings, gets in his car and drives away from the Bay. Will he be coming back?
