Neighbours Spoilers – Nicolette and Wendy face arrest after protest

When Nicolette is arrested on Neighbours the following week for planning the Erinsborough High protest, Wendy feels that she should receive the same penalty.

The Erinsborough High rescue protest kicks up on Neighbours on Monday. It’s a desperate attempt to save the school, which has already been declared to be closing due to low attendance rates. It’s organised by Nicolette (Hannah Monson) and Wendy (Candice Leask).

The council had to choose between closing Erinsborough High, Anson’s Corner High, and West Waratah High. In the end, Erinsborough High was closed, despite Annie Jones’s (the school principal) best attempts to increase enrolment by luring students away from the rival schools.

Worse, Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) has already purchased the school site and been given permission to create Eirene Rising, her new retirement community.

The long-standing friendship between Terese and Jane has broken down, with Jackie Woodburne’s character Susan caught in the midst.

Nicolette started planning a protest with Wendy, whose daughter Sadie (Emerald Chan) attends the school, after noticing how unhappy her mother had been from the experience.

Summer Hoyland (Jordy Lucas), a former student turned journalist, gave the two a great helping hand by agreeing to broadcast it on her podcast for the radio station Rise FM.

The demonstration is larger than anyone could have predicted when things get underway the next week.

When previous students from Erinsborough return and converge onto the campus, including Michelle Scully (Kate Keltie), Brett Stark (Brett Blewitt), Melissa Jarrett (Jade Amenta), and former teacher Marty Muggleton (Nikolai Egel), initially everything is going well.

When Jane hears about the demonstration, she enthusiastically joins in rather than trying to put an end to it.

However, things swiftly spiral out of control as the staff and former students rush the school, smashing the door, and inciting a melee.

When the security personnel and police show up to close it down, Nicolette is left to question if she has done more harm than good for Jane and the school.

When a “Code Blue” sounds, Melanie (Lucinda Cowden), who was caught up in the pandemonium, is hospitalised. Her condition rapidly deteriorates; she is comatose and her blood pressure has dropped.

Melanie requires immediate surgery due to a brain bleed, as determined by Remi (Naomi Rukavina)! Will she survive?

The good news for the people living on Ramsay Street is that David (Takaya Honda), Aaron (Matt Wilson), Nicolette, and their daughter Isla will be returning to the street in this Wednesday’s episode, which airs on December 6.

David was holding out, but he recently decided not to after receiving an offer of employment that was too good to refuse.

The joy is short-lived, though, as Nicolette is detained for her involvement in planning the demonstration. She is accused of affray, property damage, and unlawful assembly.

Jane is furious that her daughter might be arrested for a well-meaning demonstration to protect a valuable Erinsborough resource, but Nicolette is devastated over sending Melanie to the hospital and believes the penalty is just.

Given that she co-organized the event, Wendy asks that her husband Andrew (Lloyd Will) arrest her as well after learning that Nicolette has been taken into custody.

Later, when Andrew and Wendy return to Ramsay Street, they come to understand that Wendy’s motivations went beyond merely wanting to keep the school open.

They’re still coping with the aftermath from the Pippa controversy and the few weeks they spent suspecting Andrew was Riley Bryant’s father, JJ Varga-Murphy.

Wendy like the thought of hiding something from her spouse. Even though they are aware of Wendy’s behavior’s underlying reason, they are unsure of how to address it.

When Wendy later goes to Susan for assistance, Susan says that Wendy could not be entirely focused on Andrew.

Wendy and Andrew converse from a fresh perspective, but will they be able to come to an understanding once more?
