In a terrifying twist, Robert Robinson manages to escape his prison guard just as he is about to go into theatre and donate his kidney to estranged half brother David.

Not only is Erinsborough in grave danger when Robert manages to make it out of the hospital building, meaning there is a serial killer on the loose on Christmas Day, but David's life also continues to hang in the balance as his body shuts down as the desperate wait for a new kidney continues.

And when Robert turns up in Lassiters, it seems no one is safe...

3. Elly has her baby at knifepoint

It wouldn't be a soap birth without some sort of drama, but Elly Conway has more than her fair share of complications when she ends up giving birth at knifepoint thanks to escaped killer Robert.

When Elly stays home alone while everyone else goes to the Christmas concert, trouble starts when she spots Robert on Ramsay Street stalking Paul on Christmas Day. Things take a seriously sinister twist when he then chases her into the Kennedy house where she promptly goes into labour.

Elly's baby is on the way... but will the birth run smoothly?

4. Amy discovers Jimmy's huge secret

Amy might have Jimmy back with her in Ramsay Street, but that doesn't mean she is any closer to working out what is wrong with her son... if anything she is more in the dark than ever.

After a series of worrying events, Amy decides to go through Jimmy's belonging to get some answers... but she is set to be horrified by what she finds.

As Jimmy's lies unravel, Amy is left wondering whether there is a future for her in Erinsborough.
