Scandal surrounding Zac's arrest is turning some Summer Bay residents against Leah and her family. Business is suffering at the diner and caravan park, but it's the heartless vandalism of Alf’s house that has hurt the most.

A guilt-ridden Leah suggests to Alf that it might be best if she and the family move out, but he’s adamant that is not even an option. He kindly reassures her that they’ll get through this together.
