Last week, the cast of Neighbours filmed their final moments, and as the show regretfully approaches its conclusion, more tragedy will hit the townspeople.
Shockwaves reverberate down Ramsay Street when Hendrix Greyson (Ben Turland) survives surgery only to have his health take a deadly turn. With only hours to live, all he can do now is say his goodbyes and spend his final hours with his new wife Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone).
His death has repercussions throughout the town, with Toadie (Ryan Moloney) making a surprising move in response to his grief, leaving his own loved ones stunned. Others will seek solace in unexpected places.
Estelle (Maria Mercedes), Terese Willis’ (Rebekah Elmaloglou) mother, hits new lows as Glen (Richard Huggett) reaches out to help, only for her to blackmail him.
In the middle of the sadness, evil Corey (Laurence Boxhall) is ready to strike again when the right chance presents itself. Who will be the next to fall victim to him?
Here’s what’s coming up next in Neighbours.
In tragic scenes, Jimi Hendrix passes away
Hendrix and Mackenzie have the wedding to end all weddings — it’s a day filled with love and laughter, and they’re surrounded by their loved ones. When Hendrix is summoned for surgery, however, the joy is short-lived; things are about to get serious. He’s both nervous and delighted that this could be the start of their new life together, and things are looking up when he goes in for surgery and comes out with flying colours. But it isn’t long before he realises something is wrong: his health quickly deteriorates as his body fatally rejects his new lungs. There’s nothing that can be done; Hendrix will die. When he realises he’s about to die, he says his final farewell to a bewildered Mackenzie.
Ramsay Street mourns the death of Jimi Hendrix
The tragic death of Jimi Hendrix has shattered Ramsay Street. Sadie feels guilty about her role in his death and blames herself for getting him unwell in the first place. The rest of the street rallies behind Mackenzie, with Harlow doing everything she can to help her best friend. Kiri is there for Chloe when she needs a shoulder to cry on.
Zara steps forward with the video Hendrix was working on, just as the pain seemed to be overwhelming. The broken hearts are temporarily comforted by seeing him alive on the TV once more. But, without her sweetheart, how will Mackenzie cope?
In the aftermath of the shock death, Toadie proposes
The shock of a sudden death can often result in knee-jerk reactions, which Mel believes will occur in this case. Toadie realises he wants Mel in his life forever after seeing Mel comfort a grieving Nell and feeling the support and love she offers him. She’s his rock, and he doesn’t want to waste any more time before they’re legally married. Mel is completely taken aback when he asks the question. And her response to Toadie is the same – she says no. She makes him a counteroffer since she’s scared he’s only proposing because of his grief. Will he be able to accept her new strategy despite his shattered pride?
Glen is blackmailed by Estelle
With the passage of time, Estelle develops into a shadowy figure. While Terese is wracked with remorse about evicting her mother, Estelle is contemplating sneaky ways to reclaim her home. All she’d have to do is express some regret and demonstrate that she has no intention of changing her ways, preferring instead to manipulate others to achieve what she wants. When Glen learns of Estelle’s living predicament, he offers to put her up at the vineyard because he is a wonderful guy with a huge heart. She gladly accepts, which may be the undoing of a well-intentioned Glen. She discovers Glen’s dark secret and spots an opportunity for blackmail while at the vineyard. Unless he can get her back in Terese’s good graces, she’ll tell Terese everything. Glen is scared that the truth will be revealed; how far will he go to keep his secret hidden?
Terese issues an ultimatum to Estelle
Terese is appalled by Estelle’s extortion and Glen’s betrayal. Terese, enraged, issues an ultimatum to Estelle, handing her a check and telling her to choose between having her own kid in her life and having money. Which option will she pick? Meanwhile, Glen is devastated to have ruined his relationship with Terese; will this send him farther down the rabbit hole?
Corey strikes once more
When the opportunity to bring Corey down presents itself, Harlow sets her grief over Hendrix aside to make sure it happens. She’s working on her sting operation, but Corey has so far refused to bite. Andrew, Sadie’s father, wants her to abandon this risky mission, but Corey makes contact just as she is about to hand him her phone. She makes plans to meet him, but Harlow and Andrew scent a rat when he abruptly modifies the plans. They abort the scheme, but Sadie and Zara decide to continue with the perilous plot. They travel alone to meet the insane man, but how much danger do they expose themselves to?
Scenes will begin airing on Channel 5 on Monday, June 13th.
