Note: This Home and Away spoilers article is aimed towards UK readers watching at Channel 5 pace.
Next week's Home and Away episodes see the drama levels ramp up, as we see the action-packed scenes which finished off the 2019 season in Australia late last year.
With Robbo's enemies up to their old tricks, not everyone will survive the week. Here's a full collection of 11 storylines coming up.
1. Robbo learns of two shock deaths
After finding Lance's bloodied police badge on his doorstep, Robbo knows that his enemies are back to haunt him. Robbo thought that he'd seen the last of the sinister Ouroboros gang when their leaders were arrested recently, but it turns out that some members are still out there and ready to settle old scores.
The criminals are trying to intimidate Jasmine and Robbo so they don't testify at the upcoming trial, and they'll stop at nothing to achieve their aims. Robbo is horrified when he learns that Lance's body has been found, while Dylan Carter has also been found dead in his cell.
2. Jasmine makes a big decision
Robbo immediately gets to work on Lance's murder investigation, but is frustrated by the lack of firm clues. Lance was shot at close range, suggesting that the culprit was somebody he knew and trusted, but the forensics report doesn't offer up many more revelations. Robbo quickly realises that he'll have to question Victor and Des, the two men he'd hoped he'd seen the back of.
When Robbo takes a break from the investigation to spend some time with Jasmine, she opens up over how much spending time with Grace changed her life. Despite her previous reluctance, she now wants to have a baby of their own. Robbo is shocked and overjoyed following the news, but knows deep down that it may never happen if his dangerous enemies continue to plot against him.
3. Justin drops a bombshell on Tori
As Tori discharges herself from hospital and returns home with baby Grace, Justin chooses to keep her in the dark about the fact that Leah is missing. However, the topic of Leah naturally crops up when Tori spots some of her belongings at the Morgan house, forcing Justin to reveal that she moved in while Tori was in her coma.
Reluctantly, Justin goes on to explain that Leah is now missing and there are currently no leads, even though the police are investigating. Tori is horrified by the news and tries her best to comfort her brother.
4. Ryder faces police questioning
Ryder is in big trouble with the police after Jade secretly recorded a video of them having sex, then uploaded it onto the internet to frame him. When interviewed down at the station, Ryder insists that he had no idea a sex tape even existed, but his story is undermined by the fact that Jade has used his phone and his account to release the footage.
When Ryder next sees Jade, she shows her true colours by relishing in her actions and warning her ex-lover that everybody will see her as the victim.
5. Ryder loses his job
Things get worse for Ryder when he's formally charged thanks to Jade's scheming. As Jade continues to play the victim, even Bella is fooled and she berates Ryder for supposedly treating the Summer Bay newcomer so poorly.
Jade is also claiming that Ryder was the thief who stole money from Salt. With the accusations against Ryder mounting up, Mackenzie has no choice but to fire him and give Jade her job back.
6. Ziggy returns
Ziggy surprises her family by returning home in an emotional state, explaining that she has quit her job with the race track team. She now sees her Summer Bay departure as a big mistake and wants to talk to her ex-boyfriend Dean.
When Ziggy tracks down Dean, she admits that she kissed another guy during her time away but it didn't go any further. Dean is upset and storms off, leaving Ziggy heartbroken.
Later, Ziggy confides in her parents by explaining that she had various reasons for quitting, including the Dean factor and the toxic work environment. Ben and Maggie encourage Ziggy not to give up when it comes to winning Dean back.
7. Bella makes a disturbing move
Bella panics that her lies could be exposed when Colby questions whether she's really still sick. Mackenzie suggests that Bella should simply own up to her fakery so they can all move on, but the troubled teenager has a different idea.
Determined to prove that she's sick, Bella takes some medication that she stole from the hospital. The medication has a worrying impact and when Mackenzie finds Bella seriously unwell due to an overdose, she takes her straight to the hospital.
8. Gunmen endanger the hospital staff and patients
Shortly after Bella has been admitted for treatment, four armed hostage-takers storm into the hospital building and order everybody onto the floor while Alex, Mason and Jasmine are all on shift. The criminals are connected to Robbo's enemies, which means Jasmine is a target.
Mackenzie manages to get a message to Colby warning him of what's going on, so it's not long before a police team assembles and gathers around the building.
9. Ari Parata arrives
The high-stakes storyline provides our first glimpse at a new Summer Bay regular, Ari Parata. Ari is among the patients at the hospital when the hostage situation unfolds and he urges the criminals not to hurt anyone. He also befriends Marilyn during the scary events, providing kindness and support.
Ari will be moving to the Bay with his family in upcoming episodes, so get ready for the arrival of his brother Tane, nephew Nikau and sister-in-law Gemma soon.
10. The hostage drama leads to a death
As the siege situation continues to escalate, animosity grows towards the hostage-takers. Bella has been forced to sit on the floor with the other patients, but she's becoming increasingly weak. Some of the doctors urge the criminals to let them provide treatment to Bella, but the request is refused.
When tensions escalate, one Home and Away regular will tragically lose their life.
11. Robbo receives a massive shock
As Robbo continues to work on the murder case with Scott, he's shocked to hear about the hostage situation at the hospital. Scott has been keeping Robbo in the dark while they've been grilling Des and Victor, but he claims that it was because he didn't want to worry him.
When Robbo realises Jasmine may be in danger, he speeds off to the hospital with Scott. Sadly, Scott has other ideas, pulling out a gun and telling Robbo that they'll be taking a detour...
