Colby and Chelsea’s joy is threat­ened by a cou­ple of dark storm clouds, one in the shape of the bride’s se­ri­ously un­happy fa­ther!

P ut­ting the en­gage­ment ring back on Chelsea’s fin­ger, Colby truly felt that noth­ing could stop him this time from mak­ing the woman he thought he’d lost his wife. Af­ter all, his sor­did past as a River Boy had made things un­work­able between them, with Chelsea vow­ing to cut ties with him for good! Since trans­fer­ring to Yab­bie Creek cop shop to work along­side Colby, the cute con­sta­ble has slowly worked through her feel­ings and re­alised he’s still the man she loves.

They’re now hap­pily mak­ing plans for an im­me­di­ate wed­ding – but the at­ti­tudes and ac­tions of those around them could very well in­ter­cept the “I dos”... or at least ruin the re­cep­tion if they do tie the knot. De­spite be­ing trou­bled by thoughts of her fa­ther Neil’s (Steve Na­tion) re­ac­tion to the en­gage­ment, Chelsea (Ash­leigh Brewer) bravely gave him the news (al­beit via voice­mail) be­fore reit­er­at­ing that he could like the news or lump it! The bride-to-be knew that her po­lice in­spec­tor dad de­tested Colby (Tim Franklin) since their first split, per­turbed that his dar­ling daugh­ter had been hurt by Colby’s affi li­a­tion with the River Boys gang.

Ar­riv­ing in the Bay in hopes of talk­ing Chelsea out of mar­riage, Neil suc­ceeded in hit­ting Colby where he knew it would hurt him most: by threat­en­ing the young cop­per’s ca­reer on the force! The de­ter­mined dad kept the bomb­shells com­ing, forc­ing Colby to make a diffi cult de­ci­sion – but his ac­tions could pro­voke Chelsea into os­tracis­ing her fa­ther, pre­fer­ring in­stead to walk up the aisle un­escorted and without him among the con­gre­ga­tion! If Neil plays even dirt­ier, Chelsea may weaken and suc­cumb to his pa­ter­nal in­flu­ence over her, leav­ing Colby bereft in love

and life. Given that they’re also be­com­ing en­tan­gled in the dan­ger­ous hunt for Colby’s miss­ing sis­ter, Neil may be even more mo­ti­vated to pro­tect his daugh­ter from mar­ry­ing a man with such a com­pli­cated, sul­lied past.

Mean­while, Karen Thomp­son (Ge­or­gia Adam­son), the highly strung and men­tally ill mother of Colby’s River Boy best mate Dean (Pa­trick O’Con­nor), could be an­other wed­ding spoiler. Cur­rently in psy­chi­atric care get­ting treat­ment for her ill­ness, Karen is a loose can­non who has al­ready dis­played the depth of her mood swings to­wards Colby. Ini­tially telling him she’d al­ways liked him, she then over­re­acted when he in­sisted on hav­ing her taken into care, so there’s al­ways a chance Karen could seek re­venge on him, choos­ing his wed­ding day to strike!
