Mackenzie Booth of Home and Away has hit rock bottom after being the target of a disturbing scam in the show’s most recent Australian episodes.
Mac is currently at the centre of a major plotline, as she has been attempting to fix her financial problems at Salt by conducting illegal gambling evenings.
Mac planned another event in this week’s Australian episodes, hoping it would go as smoothly as the others, but mysterious newcomer PK found a sickening way to manipulate her.
PK informed Mac that the house had lost and that she owed the poker players $100,000. He then stepped in, suggesting that he’d settle the loan for her in exchange for her sleeping with him.
Mac was coerced into joining PK in a hotel room, but she eventually refused to comply with his heinous demands and walked out.
Mac was shocked when her brother Dean Thompson explained to her that the house never loses in poker, so PK had duped her.
As Mac considered how to exact vengeance on PK, Dean advised her to focus on resolving her debt problems instead. He mentioned that she may still borrow money from her lover Logan Bennett.
When Logan warmly expressed his love for her, Mac contemplated it briefly but felt too terrible.
Later, a distraught Mac told Dean that asking Logan for assistance was still out of the question.
“PK disgusted me,” she explained. Even so, I opted to be present. That is something I cannot avoid. I have no choice but to accept it.
“You may not understand, but I’m not asking for Logan’s help after almost cheating on him.”
Dean tried to persuade Mac that she was not to blame for PK’s bad behaviour, but she refused to talk about it any further and walked away. What is she going to do now?
These scenes will air on Channel 5 in June for Home and Away fans in the UK.
