Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) realises she’s in dire financial straits in Home and Away
Mackenzie finds herself under a dark cloud when she receives a letter at Salt. But why does it put the restaurant-stroke-bar’s owner in such a downcast mood?
Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich) is super-excited about the cocktail menu that he’s put together at Salt, but when he shows it to his boss, she tells him to forget it!
It’s not happening!
Then, when Mackenzie’s brother Dean Thompson (Patrick O’Connor) turns up for a bite to eat, she snaps at him. If he’s expecting to get anything for free today, he can forget it!
Dean and Ryder are left reeling. What’s got into Mackenzie?
She tells them that she’s sick of being taking for a ride and is calling in her debts.
Later, all is revealed when Mackenzie gets a call from her insurance provider with terrible news. It turns out that her policy won’t cover the damages from last year’s gas attack.
Mackenzie shares her financial worries with Dean.
Mackenzie unravels as she realises just how much debt she’s now in and when Dean discovers her at rock bottom, she’s forced to admit that she’s broke.
Dean suggests that she should ask Logan Bennett (Harley Bonner) for help, but she says she would rather die than ask him for money and swears her brother to secrecy.
How is Mackenzie going to get out of debt?
Mackenzie’s not impressed by Dean’s debt solutions!
