Neighbours spoilers: Finn Kelly wakes from his coma...
Just when you thought it was safe, trouble is on the horizon when twisted teacher Finn Kelly wakes from his coma in Erinsborough Hospital...
Susan Kennedy and her nieces Elly Conway and Bea Nilsson have tried to put Finn Kelly out of their minds, after the twisted former school teacher tried to to kill them.
He's been lying in a coma in Erinsborough Hospital since the fateful day Susan shoved him off a cliff in self-defence. However, everyone's unaware, Finn's eyes have flickered open and he's awake from his months-long coma...
Meanwhile, tragic news reaches the residents of Ramsay Street as Toadie Rebecchi and stepson Callum return from their doomed family holiday to the beach.
As Toadie struggles to deal with his loss, Susan and her husband Karl and neighbours Shane and Dipi Rebecchi step up to support Toadie in his time of need. But when Karl spreads the news to Sonya's good friend Mark Brennan, the policeman is devastated and once again finds his focus on fiancee Elly and their wedding plans slipping away.
Toadie's brother Shane is also keeping secrets, after Sonya confided in him about cryptic information from conwoman Andrea Somers that Toadie's first wife Dee might still be alive! Confiding in wife Dipi, they decide to keep the secret until Toadie is in a stronger place.
Elsewhere in Erinsborough, it's business as usual down at Lassiters. But there's a surprise in store for hotel employee Ned Willis when he uncovers evidence linking dodgy real estate agent Mel Lohan and Paul Robinson.
Could Paul have known about Mel's plans to start the fire at the garage, which almost killed Ned's girlfriend Bea?
