Home and Away spoilers: Mackenzie spirals and turns to alcohol

Deans rejects spending time with Mackenzie (Picture: Channel 5)

Dean (Patrick OConnor) has recently accepted an offer from his sister Mackenzie (Emily Weir) to work at Salt in order to meet his probation conditions. When he shows up for his first day, Mac tells him how he should greet customers as they enter and hands him a uniform. However, Dean tells him that is never going to happen and refuses to put on the uniform. Mac is unhappy, but Dean sticks to his guns and she eventually gives in.

The battle continues when Dean happily goes behind the bar, but without his RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) certificate, Mackenzie instead hands him some cleaning equipment and sends him to wipe tables. When Justin (James Stewart) and Leah (Ada Nicodemou) show up for lunch, Dean has to swallow his pride to greet them, and when Justin starts asking questions, he soon becomes irritated.



Mac offers to have a drink with Dean before the lunch crowd arrives, but Dean turns her down, saying he doesnt need any special treatment from her. Later on, Ben (Rohan Nichol) turns up, and Mac is offended to find that Dean chooses to go on his break then and have a beer with him instead.

Later on, Mac asks Dean for his advice on how Salt can be improved, but Dean doesnt have much to say in response. When Ziggy (Sophie Dillman), Willow (Sarah Roberts) and Bella (Courtney Miller) come into the bar, he stops working to gossip with them, leading Mac to snap at him after he ignores her and walk off. Dean chases after her but has no idea why shes upset.

Still trying to understand Macs behaviour, Dean tries to reach out to her again, but she shuts him down and keeps the conversation strictly work-related. He offers to close up for the night, but Mac makes it clear that she doesnt want him around and would rather be alone. As Dean turns around and leaves for the night, he looks back to see his sister pour herself a stiff drink and sit alone to get through herRead More – Source
