Neighbours Spoilers – Karl left disappointed on his final day

Next week on Neighbours, as Karl’s final day at Erinsborough Hospital rolls around, he’s disappointed by a lack of a farewell.

Dr Karl’s medical prowess – and sometimes questionable medical decisions – have been a continued presence on Ramsay Street since he and the Kennedy clan arrived way back in 1994.

The Kennedy family back in 1994 – Malcolm, Susan, Karl, Libby and Billy

The GP soon set up his own practice, Erinsborough Medical Centre, in the Lassiters complex, where – other than a one-year break between 1996-7 following Cheryl Stark’s death – he remained until 2006.

Erinsborough Medical Centre was the location of Karl’s infamous kiss with Sarah Beaumont

After briefly quitting medicine a second time following a paternity mixup, Karl soon returned to the profession, this time taking up a post at Erinsborough Hospital.

While it hasn’t been without its dramas, Karl is deeply proud of his long-established career, and so is hoping for a grand send-off when his final day at the hospital arrives next week.

Soon after Neighbours returned in September last year, Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) headhunted Karl to be the on-site GP at her new retirement village – or ‘Resident Doctor and wellness expert’, to be specific.

In recent weeks, with work on Eirene Rising nearing completion, a publicity drive saw Karl’s face splashed on billboards around the suburb as Terese tried to tempt Erinsborough’s elderly residents to purchase a unit.

Next week, Karl’s final day in Erinsborough Hospital rolls around. Expecting a big farewell fanfare, he’s left disappointed by the absence of anything at all.

He gets his hopes up when fellow doctor Remi (Naomi Rukavina) asks him to join a gathering in a treatment room, only for an elated Remi to announce her successful promotion to Karl’s post of Senior Medical Officer.

Although Karl agrees to meet up with Remi for a drink after work, he’s left disappointed that she’s been the only one to acknowledge his final day.

In reality, Karl’s former colleagues, along with wife Susan (Jackie Woodburne), are setting up a surprise party at The Waterhole, and Remi’s invite of a drink is their way of luring him there.

Unaware of the plans, a dejected Karl shows up at Aaron’s (Matt Wilson) doorstep and admits he doesn’t feel like meeting up with Remi after such a lacklustre final day.

With Aaron also unaware of the surprise party, he agrees to go on a bike ride with Karl, putting the surprise in jeopardy.

In next Tuesday’s episode, as everyone waits for Karl to arrive at his surprise party, Remi gets a text from the main man, cancelling their catchup.

Susan is dismayed that her husband has rejected the bait, but with a little help from Aaron, she manages to convince Karl to join her for ‘dinner’ at The Waterhole.

As Karl finally arrives, he’s thrilled as he’s welcomed into the celebration in his honour.

Lapping up the appreciation, he makes a heartfelt speech as only Karl can, whilst expressing his gratitude that he’s able to hand the baton on to a skilful Remi.

Thanks for everything, Dr Karl, and good luck with the next chapter!

As the drinks flow at Karl’s party, a revelation from another doctor makes Karl feel extremely uncomfortable.

This week, as Remi contemplated whether to apply for Karl’s former position, she was given some encouragement by fellow doctor Gavin Bowman (Cameron MacDonald), who recently made his first appearance as Haz’s (Shiv Palekar) doctor.

Gavin insisted that he wasn’t interested in the job himself, but that he was more than happy to do a pros and cons list to help a conflicted Remi make her decision.

Remi was slightly thrown but appreciative of Gavin’s offer… but now it appears there was more to his offer than meets the eye.

Gavin reveals to Karl that he’d like to get physical with Remi and her wife Cara (Sara West), leaving Karl speechless.

He decides to report Gavin’s comments to HR, but decides it’s best if Remi remains unaware.

Does Remi have anything to worry about with the dodgy new doc?
