Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian-pace episodes, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.

Home and Away has aired a busy week of episodes in Australia, with Jasmine Delaney's issues being revisited, Angelo Rosetta finally discovering the truth about Taylor's affair, and Nikau Parata considering his future in Summer Bay.

Here are seven big questions we've been left with after the latest episodes.

1. Can Jasmine accept Christian?

Jasmine has worked hard to get her life back on track in recent months, but her confidence took a knock this week when she saw how close Tori was getting to newcomer Christian.

Although Jasmine had previously encouraged Tori to go for it with Christian, she was unsettled when she witnessed a happy family-like scene for Tori, Christian and baby Grace at the beach.

Jasmine became distant and troubled afterwards, but once she was encouraged to open up over what was bothering her, she admitted that she feared Christian "replacing" Robbo in Grace's life.

Jasmine and Tori later tried to sort things out with an open and honest conversation, but could the new Jas/Tori/Christian dynamic still pose some challenges in the weeks ahead?

2. How much will Angelo hear on that necklace?

Angelo made a creepy move once he discovered the truth about Taylor's affair with Colby. Rather than call in the divorce lawyers, Angelo decided his best move was to pretend everything was fine and "kindly" gave Taylor a new necklace – with a hidden audio bug inside. Yikes.

Angelo was delighted to realise that he now had the perfect way to eavesdrop on all of Taylor and Colby's private conversations.

The ruthless detective already knows all about the affair, but could this listening device lead him to further discoveries in the coming days? We certainly wouldn't advise Colby to tell Taylor the truth about Ross when that necklace is on...

3. Has Dean lost Jai forever?

Thursday's triple bill of episodes focused on the ever-worsening relations between Dean and Amber, as they struggled to agree on what was best for Jai. Fed up with Amber calling all the shots, Dean made a risky move by kidnapping Jai.

Dean planned to take Jai away to Queensland so they could start a new life together, but had second thoughts when he realised how much Jai would miss Amber. Colby was also on hand to talk some sense into Dean, warning him about the implications of a life on the run with Jai.

Amber was relieved when Jai was returned to her after a night away, but she was adamant that there'd be no forgiveness for Dean and he'd never see Jai again. Once her anger has subsided, will she stick to this vow or give Dean one last chance?

4. Will Nikau leave Summer Bay?

Home and Away tied up one of its biggest loose ends this week, finally explaining why departed character Gemma Parata won't be back. Gemma has decided to stay in New Zealand full-time, wanting to be close to her mother, who's now getting older.

Gemma didn't want to be without her son, so she invited Nikau to come and live with her in New Zealand. Despite Nikau's close relationship with his two uncles and his successful romance with Bella, he gave the idea some serious consideration. Will Nikau and Bella now be torn apart, or will Nik decide that his future lies in Summer Bay?

5. What has happened to Tane?

Tane took a trip out of the Bay to find someone who'd take some stolen goods off his hands, but his mission has clearly gone badly wrong. After days of radio silence, Tane contacted Ziggy but she could barely hear him amid what seemed to be a chaotic and violent scene in the background. In the end, the line went dead.

Next week's episodes will see Tane return home, with a head injury and abdominal pain. An urgent trip to the hospital will also reveal that he has a tear in his liver. What exactly did Tane get up to during his time away?

6. Can Ziggy and Willow get rid of the stolen goods?

Ziggy and Willow took matters into their own hands after Tane failed to clean up his own mess. Tane had dragged the garage – and later Ziggy's home – into his criminal activity when he needed a place to store a stolen van and the goods inside.

With Tane AWOL and seemingly making no progress with finding someone to solve the problem, Ziggy asked Willow to help instead. She was hugely relieved when Willow reached out to a dodgy contact from her past and found someone who'd be willing to take the incriminating items.

Ziggy and Willow hastily arranged a road trip to sort out the problem, with Ziggy desperately hoping they wouldn't get stopped by the police on the way. Will their mission be a success?

7. Will Tori and Christian's relationship go further?

Tori has spent weeks in a spin over her romantic chemistry with Christian. After an awkward first date, she overanalysed things when Christian didn't move in for a kiss as they said goodnight.

When Tori questioned Christian over this afterwards, he took a much more forward approach by trying to book in some time for them to sleep together. Tori was stunned by his direct approach, but will she be tempted to take their romance to the next level?

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
