My guest blogger Chloe did so brilliantly with the last guest blog for Neighbours, that I have asked her to become my regular guest blogger for the show. Who better than a super-fan to have on board to add to the telly blogging here at Break A Leg? So, for your delectation here are her highlights of last week’s episodes:
A fantastic week in Erinsborough. A trip to the shed ended up in the newest Ramsay Street Resident arriving, whilst Sonya made a solemn exit from the Street. A dramatic mixed bag, I’m sure you’ll agree Here are some highlights…
Paige and Jack’s Shack ~ Apparently the ‘Love Shack’ has quite the hold on Paige as she is insistent she wants to revisit the place where her life changed. Yeah, I don’t get it either! With Susan and Piper in tow, they set off to the abandoned shed. But all is not well and Paige goes into early labour (rather quickly it would seem)! With Susan feeling increasingly unwell and Piper still recovering from the backpacker’s incident, all three of them are stranded and in great danger in the wilderness. Thankfully, help arrives in the form of guardian angels Dr Karl (of course) and Father Jack. Paige and Jack’s baby boy arrives – in a somewhat more dramatic fashion than your standard nativity but whilst we’re all breathing a sigh of relief, Paige falls unconscious and she’s rushed into hospital and straight into surgery, leaving Jack distraught at the thought of losing her. Confiding in Amy (a friendship I adore. by the way) he questions his future as a Priest (again!) and thinks it might be time to commit himself to Paige and his newly born son. Fast-forward a little while and Paige wakes to find mum Lauren by her bedside and the new mother and son finally get some time to meet and bond.
Susan’s been drugged! ~ Having offered to take Paige (and Piper) to the shack, Susan begins to feel unwell and woozy. She just about makes it as far as the shack, through the wilderness, to find out Paige is in labour. By the time she returns to the car she’s not looking so good and drifts in and out of consciousness, leaving poor Piper to drive to search for phone service. Once help arrives (the aforementioned guardian angels) Susan is admitted to hospital and tests done to determine whether she is suffering an MS relapse. When the results return it’s not MS Susan needs to worry about this time, but she appears to have been drugged! Everyone’s quick to assume a mistake has been made with her vitamins – that is until Elly hears the news, her mind jumps to just one person. But can she prove it?
Finn ~ We know he’s up to no good and playing dirty to get his way to the Principal’s job. So when Elly sets off to Sydney to dig up some dirt on Finn she finds it and assumes that he has a drug problem and that’s how Susan’s pills have been spiked. You’re way off the mark there Elly, but I’m more than ready for us to see Finn get his comeuppance. The only person on his side now is young and impressionable Xanthe, and it’s a manipulative relationship that certainly makes me feel very uncomfortable. The net is closing in, Finn! But who’s going to be the one to figure it all out?
Sonya leaves town ~ Having remembered that she is responsible for the Backpackers disaster, Sonya wants to apologise to all involved. However, her apology falls on deaf ears and there’s very little sympathy in the air for her situation. As Sonya gets lower and lower Toadie tries one last time to encourage her to give the two of them another go. In an honest, emotional and frank discussion they both admit their part in the situation – Sonya finally admitting that she railroaded Toadie into the surrogacy plan and takes responsibility for her part in the situation they now find themselves in. Concerned that too much has changed for anything to go back to how it was, Toadie tells Sonya they could leave Erinsborough together and tells her that he will always love her. But Sonya’s only heading to one place – rehab. Toadie is happy with this idea and it looks hopeful that the pair might reconcile. With half of the street watching on, Sonya departs. But when Toadie checks up on her later in the week, she’s checked herself out. With only one lead on where she might be (an old friend she knew in her previous life as an addict) Toadie is desperate to find her to stop her spiralling even further. Will he be able to convince her to come home?
