After the great fire drama at Erinsborough High, Neighbours showed a shocking arrest scene for Zara Selwyn.
In the last minutes of Channel 5’s Wednesday broadcast, Zara (Freya Van Dyke) was taken to the police station for questioning.
Several strange flames have lately erupted in the Erinsborough area, according to viewers.
The on-screen confirmation that Zara’s so-called friends Aubrey Laing (Etoile Little) and Sadie Rodwell (Emerald Chan) were responsible for the occurrences made everything apparent this week.
To frame Zara, Aubrey and Sadie set the fires, expecting that she would be dismissed from school and sent away by her mother, Amy Greenwood (Jacinta Stapleton).
Zara and Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone) were both put in risk in the most recent episode of Neighbours as a much larger fire broke out at Erinsborough High.
Zara and Mackenzie were stuck in a store room together as Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne) coordinated an emergency evacuation of the kids.
Zara was able to escape through an air vent, but she had to leave Mackenzie behind when she grew too weak to help herself due to smoke inhalation.
Zara didn’t want to abandon her neighbour, but Mackenzie persuaded her to get out and raise the alarm about her whereabouts.
Meanwhile, Jane Harris (Annie Jones) risks her life in order to find lost students, and she encounters danger along the way.
Hendrix Greyson (Ben Turland), Mackenzie’s boyfriend, also dashed into the danger zone to save her, but was unable to do so without the assistance of the firefighters.
Everyone made it out alive in the end, but Mackenzie’s fate remained unknown as she stayed unconscious. At the scene, paramedics were unable to resuscitate her.
Outside the school, Zara tried everything she could to expose Sadie and Aubrey as the Erinsborough arsonists.
When Aubrey stabbed Susan Kennedy with the knife, she revealed that she and Sadie had truly observed Zara commit the arson attack.
When Zara returned to Number 30 after Aubrey’s bogus accusations, the inevitable happened: the cops came knocking to arrest her.
Before Zara was hauled away to face rigorous questioning for a crime she didn’t commit, Amy shared an emotional moment with her daughter.
Will the truth ever be revealed?
