That's when good Neighbours become (more than just) good friends? Things take a passionate turn between Piper and Leo...

Piper Willis has been a great mate to Leo Tanaka since his break-up with her mum Terese Willis.

With Leo still venting his frustration over his dad Paul Robinson getting together with Terese so soon after they broke-up, he has been spending more time with Piper who is sympathetic to his side of the story.

But when the friends get together for a marathon movie night down at the Backpackers, they find themselves snuggling-up together on Leo's bed and getting a bit too close for comfort...

Meanwhile, there's a blast from the past for Paul, when his late dad Jim Robinson's ex-wife Dr Beverly Robinson (played by Shaunna O'Grady) returns to Erinsborough.

Paul has called on Beverly's expertise in brain injuries to help with the case of Finn Kelly, who appears to have retrograde amnesia after waking from a coma and still thinks it is 2007.

Karl Kennedy and his wife Susan are still unsure if Finn is just faking memory loss to avoid being brought to justice for his previous crimes.

But could it soon be Susan who is brought to justice for her previous crimes, after Finn discovers it was Susan who shoved him off a cliff, which landed him in a coma...

Elsewhere, Gary Canning and his mum Sheila head into the city for their night at the ballet and have a heart-to-heart about the mistakes they've both made, which led to their recent bust-up. Could this be a fresh start for Gary and Sheila?

Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?
