Neighbours has released episode synopses and pictures for the show’s fourth, fifth and sixth weeks, giving us a look at what’s in store throughout October.
We’re just entering our second week of Neighbours: The Next Chapter on Network 10 and Amazon Freevee, but the show has now released spoilers for weeks 4-6, teasing storylines up until the end of October.
It’s already been a busy week in Erinsborough. Two years have passed in Ramsay Street, and in that time Toadie (Ryan Moloney) and Melanie (Lucinda Cowden) have split, Paul (Stefan Dennis) jilted Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) at their vow renewal, Mackenzie (Georgie Stone) and Sadie (Emerald Chan) have become good friends, and there’ve been numerous departures and new faces.
In the first week back, Toadie and Terese married, Susan (Jackie Woodburne) revealed her resentment towards Karl (Alan Fletcher), newcomer Reece (Mischa Barton) was unveiled as an investor in Lassiters, and Mackenzie hinted at feelings towards housemate Haz (Shiv Palekar).
In episodes airing over the next fortnight, JJ’s (Riley Bryant) digging takes an unexpected turn, Terese’s business venture encounters a roadblock, and Harold makes a devastating admission.
Elsewhere, Terese discovers the truth of secrets that are very close to home, while Mike (Guy Pearce) finds himself the victim of his own impulsiveness. Read the rest of the Weeks 2 and 3 spoilers here.
Now, looking further ahead to Weeks 4 to 6, Jane (Annie Jones) is dealt a devastating blow, with pictures hinting it involves her new job as Principal of Erinsborough High.
New photos show Jane in the corridor of the school, ripping up architectural plans in front of Terese, while parents including Wendy Rodwell (Candice Leask) watch on in the background. Could the storyline be related to Terese’s proposed retirement village?
Paul’s rivalry with Reece Sinclair continues, as he makes a “calculated move that has explosive consequences at Lassiters,” while Reece is troubled by a personal discovery before an unwelcome guest from home pays her a visit.
Could it be her sister, who Mischa Barton recently told Back to the Bay is the real reason for her arrival in Erinsborough?
There’s also a violent display affecting the Varga-Murphys, as their past comes back to haunt them. The first week’s episodes have seen them reveal that they’re worried about someone from Cara and Remi’s past – could they make an unexpected appearance on Ramsay Street?
The photos also show the Varga-Murphys in the living room of Number 30, which was recently vacated by Toadie. They were only staying in Number 24 temporarily, while Jane and Mike were in England, so could they be about to make their Ramsay Street adventure much more permanent?
Wendy (Candice Leask) is also set to receive a devastating blow, leading her to dangerously take matters into her own hands.
New photos show the Rodwells interacting with JJ Varga-Murphy – will her bad news have something to do with the teen’s growing curiosity surrounding the street?
While producers are keeping things under wraps, fans suspect that JJ is trying to track down his biological father, and the new photos suggest that his investigation – if it is related – will have consequences for Wendy, as she’s pictured looking upset.
There’s drama for Toadie too, as he faces up to the issues threatening the happiness of his family.
Keep reading for all the synopses.
