Neighbours spoilers: Elly Conway fears for Chloe Brennan's safety
During a night out, Elly is worried when Chloe starts flirting with a bunch of strangers, unaware of the real reason behind Chloe's drunken behaviour
Although Chloe Brennan laughed off her kiss with gal pal Elly Conway as just fun between friends, she is in emotional turmoil over her growing romantic feelings towards her future sister-in-law.
Chloe has been trying to put some distance between herself and Elly since the kiss. But it's a bit tricky since Elly is now engaged to Chloe's big brother Mark.
So when Chloe's other brother Aaron organises a fun night out, she once again feels awkward around happy couple Elly and Mark. To drown her sorrows, Chloe hits the booze and starts flirting with a bunch of waterpolo players in the nightclub.
But when Chloe suddenly disappears from the club, Elly fears for her friend's safety...
Meanwhile, Sheila Canning returns to Ramsay Street after her trip to New Zealand with her fella, Dr Clive Gibbons, to meet his family.
However, Sheila walks straight back into big drama when she catches her son Gary trying to dismantle the incriminating remote control device he retrieved from the Robinson Heights building site. Sheila is shocked when she discovers former prison inmate Gary has got himself involved with some crooked characters to make some fast money.
But the question is, will Sheila keep Gary's shady secret? Or will she tell Gary's girlfriend Amy Williams the truth that Gary is connected to the recent robbery at Robinson Heights?
Elsewhere, guilty teenager Willow Somers visits Sonya Rebecchi in hospital, believing she is to blame for bringing her awful grandmother Alice Wells into their lives.
Sonya and her hubby Toadie refuse to blame Willow for the actions of her mum Andrea and Alice. But wanting to see justice served, Toadie has a plan to hit wicked Andrea and Alice where it hurts. Will he go through with it?
