    • Episode #2000 saw Angel and her new family depart the bay.
    • Episode #3000 saw Mitch's departure, and ended with Alex, Dani and Brodie in a car accident.
    • Episode #4000 was Alf Stewart's birthday party, with numerous past characters returning. This also ended in a tragic car accident, this time fatal.
