Neighbours spoilers: Christmas Day tragedy in Ramsay Street?
The residents of Ramsay Street unite for a Christmas Day concert. But when Dipi reads her tarot cards, she predicts tragedy is in store...
After the death of long-time Ramsay Street neighbour Miss Grundy, Toadie Rebecchi is determined to bring the community of Erinsborough together with a jolly Christmas concert. But is tragedy in store for someone?
Dipi Rebecchi reveals to Liz Conway her last two tarot card readings correctly predicted the deaths of two people close to her. So Dipi is shocked when she does another reading and the same death card combination shows. But whose days are numbered?
Meanwhile, Susan Kennedy feels drawn to visit former teacher Finn Kelly in hospital, where he remains in a coma after being pushed off a cliff by Susan who was defending her nieces Bea Nilsson and Elly Conway and their friend Xanthe Canning.
Even though Susan has been suspended from her job as Principal of Erinsborough High School and is facing possible attempted murder charges, somehow she can't turn her back on Finn. However, Susan is left reeling when she finds a mystery gift left on her doorstep... and it ain't no Christmas present!
Elsewhere, Bea has been asked to sing at the Christmas concert. But her stage fright gets the better of her when her mum Liz unkindly reminds her of a previous concert appearance she messed-up.
With Bea threatening to pull out of performing, will the Christmas concert be thrown into chaos?
