Next week on Neighbours, tragedy strikes as Hendrix Greyson (Ben Turland) dies in tragic scenes despite obtaining a lung transplant.
As viewers are aware, the beloved character was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis earlier this year, with a lung transplant being his sole treatment option.
Things were looking bright for him a few weeks ago when he got a call from the hospital saying that a match had become available, which meant that, despite his fears, he would get a life-saving transplant after all.
After Hendrix saw the donor in the hospital, his family decided to remove their son from the donor list, but Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone) persuaded them to reconsider.
As a result, Hendrix has decided to hasten his and Mackenzie’s wedding, and the happy couple will tie the knot in emotional scenes that will show this week.
Soon after, the day of the operation approaches, and Hendrix says his goodbyes to his loved ones before being brought away for surgery.
The lung transplant went well. However, tragedy comes when Hendrix’s body rejects the lungs, leaving him with only hours to survive.
He is devastated, but he battles through the anguish, attempting to savour his final moments with his loved ones before passing away.
You’re crying, not laughing.
The news of Jimi Hendrix’s death makes its way down Ramsay Street, and emotions are running high.
Sadie Rodwell (Emerald Chan) blames herself for what has transpired, while Harlow Robinson (Jemma Donovan) attempts to help Mackenzie, and Kiri Hua Durant (Gemma Bird Mattheson) stands with Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly).
Meanwhile, Zara Zelwyn (Freya Van Dyke) discloses that Hendrix was working on a secret project for his family, a DVD.
His family and friends view the video and are blown away, grateful to hear from Hendrix one last time.
Mackenzie will spend the rest of the episode perfecting two tributes for her late spouse.
But her anxiety rises when she realises they’re both scheduled on the same day, leaving her between a rock and a hard place because she wants to go to both.
