It's only days until Mark and Elly's wedding. But things don't bode well when an overwhelmed Mark flees from Elly and Erinsborough...
Mark Brennan has been left devastated by the news of his good friend Sonya Rebecchi's passing. So his upcoming wedding to Elly Conway is just about the last thing on his mind.
Having recently caught Mark visiting the grave of his dead fiancee Kate Ramsay to share his woes, Elly remains unsure how to help and is once again feeling pushed aside. So she turns to Mark's sister Chloe for support.
However, Elly and the Brennan family are in for a surprise when Mark's anguish becomes too much and he flees Erinsborough! With just days until Mark and Elly's planned wedding, it's not looking good...
Meanwhile, the Kennedy household is shocked by the news Finn Kelly has woken from his coma. Everyone immediately fears the family will be in danger again.
But in an unexpected turn of events, doctor David Tanaka and the medical team at Erinsborough Hospital discover Finn appears to have no recent memory. In fact, he still thinks it is 2007 and he is at university training to be a teacher!
But if Finn now has amnesia, does this mean he'll also avoid the consequences of his crimes?
Elsewhere in Ramsay Street, Toadie Rebecchi faces the challenge of making preparations for his late wife Sonya's memorial. But since it's only been days since Sonya died, he's finding it hard to carry on.
Can friends and neighbours find a way to help Toadie fulfill Sonya's final wishes?
