Will Griggs
Having arrived in Ramsay Street hiding the secret that his real name was Sebastian Barnes and he was the heir to a multi-million dollar hotel empire, Will started dating Carmella Cammeniti. But it wasn’t long before Paul Robinson recognised ‘Will’ and started blackmailing him when he found out that he was also the mysterious 2% shareholder in Lassiter’s. Although he didn’t want Carmella to fall in love with his money, he realised that he would have to tell her the truth. Unfortunately, the truth came too late and Carmella told him that, with no trust there, she couldn’t continue seeing him. Will then disappeared from Erinsborough and it was left to his older brother, Oliver, to explain that his younger brother’s stories about being a free spirit and going backpacking were all lies, and Carmella hadn’t been the first girl to be taken in by him.

A few months later, Katya was just recovering from her own run-in with the police, having become involved with some former criminal friends who were blackmailing her, when she was called to give evidence at Max’s trial. With that out of the way, and Max having escaped with his freedom, Katya decided that a fresh start with new boyfriend Ned Parker was in order.

A couple of months later, Max was spotted by Elle in Waratah Park, where it emerged that he had been staying with some people he met whilst sheltering in a church. In Erinsborough, Max’s wife, Steph, had been moving on with her life and was on the verge of a new romance with old friend Toadie, when Max returned.

Dylan kidnapped Paul and pushed him off a cliff, before breaking down and realising that he'd let his little brother down. After realising that Paul was alive and hanging from a ledge, Dylan helped him up, but the anger wouldn't go away. On the day of Stingray's funeral, Dylan trashed the bar and his mum's boyfriend, Senior Sergeant Allan Steiger, was alarmed when Dylan begged to be arrested before he seriously hurt someone. When Kim Timmins risked arrest to return for his son's funeral, Allan agreed to turn a blind eye and suggested that Kim could take Dylan back up north with him, giving him the chance to sort himself out.
