Next week on Neighbours, David’s new jail cell proves to be just as dangerous as everyone suspected, and Jane’s son Byron’s scandalous side job causes him problems.
Here are 11 spoilers for next week’s episode of Neighbours.
1. Glen and Kiri are proactive
Glen was determined to overcome his addiction withdrawals and attend Kiri’s birthday party, but he was forced to make up an excuse and bail out at the last minute, only to be caught out by Kiri.
Glen realises that the only way to make things right is to be open and honest with her about his issues. It’s a good idea to tell her because it brings them closer together.
Kiri is adamant that she does not want him to be a father, but she is open to the possibility of them becoming friends. Will this be the encouragement Glen needs to get himself out of this funk?
2. Terese acquires ammunition to use against Paul
Paul’s investment in Sapiko & Bazz Holdings has been a source of contention in his divorce with Terese, and she will find out what he has been up to next week.
Terese is suspicious when it is revealed that the company has gone bankrupt, and thanks to Toadie and Byron, she discovers that it was all a ruse to hide assets.
Terese, armed with this knowledge, sets out to find a way to prove it – and, in the process, derail the latest of Paul’s schemes…
3. Mackenzie is still having difficulties
Mackenzie appears to be coping well in the aftermath of Jimi Hendrix’s death on the surface, but we’ll find out next week that she’s nowhere near as prepared to deal with it all as she claims.
Sadie, who has been feeling guilty about her role in the incident, writes Mack a letter. Mackenzie takes the letter, which relieves Sadie, but when she leaves, Mackenzie tears it up and sobs – Sadie is still far from being forgiven.
4. Byron’s unexpected side project is disclosed
Jane was overjoyed when her son, Byron, arrived unexpectedly in Erinsborough, but he has a secret that will astound her when she discovers it.
Byron is distracted while working with Toadie at Rebecchi Law and has a habit of disappearing for long amounts of time. It turns out that working with Toadie isn’t his sole profession; he also works as a gigolo on the side.
Will Byron be able to preserve his secret, and how will his family react if they find out?
5. Amy has a dating problem
Amy is hellbent on proving Zara wrong and continues to dangle her toes in the dating world, despite Zara’s belief that her mother has deeper feelings for Toadie than she is letting on.
Amy feels she’s off to a good start when she goes on a date with Barry and the two hit it off immediately. Unfortunately for Amy, Barry is married, and she is back to square one – is love on the horizon for Amy, and could it be with her old pal Toadie?
6. Paul and Terese recognise that their marriage is over
Paul and Terese’s breakup hasn’t been easy, and Paul’s nastier side has been on full show several times over the previous year. The couple will eventually come to an agreement — and acknowledge that there is no way back for them as a married couple – next week.
The sticking point has been assets, so Paul decides to cut his losses and make Terese an attractive offer to buy her out of the hotel – which she gladly accepts. Paul and Terese’s marriage appears to be officially finished.
7. David is a prisoner who is fighting for his freedom
After the disaster of the ill-fated boat trip away, David has been placed in custody, and he is having to adjust to his new living conditions in jail. Worse, his friends and family quickly find that he is being incarcerated in a maximum-security prison.
Paul is anxious for his son’s safety and cautions him that if he wants to be safe, he must have his wits about him. And it turns out that Paul was correct, as David is going to collide with someone who appears to be on the verge of ruining his life.
8. Melanie is haunted by recollections of Sonya
With a large mural of Sonya at Lassiters and her being one of Ramsay Street’s most beloved inhabitants, it’s tough not to be reminded of her when you’re around Toadie.
Melanie will find it difficult to traverse Sonya’s memory next week, as she begins to feel as though she will never be able to live up to it.
Mel confides in Amy about her concerns, and this information reaches Toadie, who has a respectful discussion with her about his late wife. Will he say what Mel needs to hear in order for her to put everything behind her?
9. Nicolette and Kiri become more intimate
Next week, Chloe and Kiri will continue to work on their relationship, but recapturing the spark they once had will be difficult. Chloe looks to Kiri for a pick-me-up after what’s going on with David, but anything romantic is out when the mood doesn’t cooperate.
Kiri runs into Nicolette and asks if she wants to go to church with her, and Nic says yes. Will Kiri rekindle her relationship with Nicolette?
10. David’s friends and family are worried about him
David is in a grave predicament in prison, and his family and friends are trying to save him.
Paul tries to help by hiring his old rival, Holden, to keep an eye on him, but things swiftly spiral out of control, and everyone realises there is nothing they can do to save David from a terrible scenario.
That changes when Freya receives a call from Gareth’s ex-girlfriend Emma, who offers to help him, but can she be trusted?
11. Mackenzie attends a grief group
Mackenzie agrees to go to a grief counselling group since she realises she needs help reconstructing her life. Grant insists on accompanying her to express his support, and he is proud of his daughter when she gives a speech that demonstrates how well adjusted she is despite her ordeal.
While she appears to be doing well on the surface, things aren’t the same behind closed doors, and she still has a long way to go – but will she seek help when she needs it?
