For the fourth, fifth, and sixth weeks of the show, Neighbours has made available picture galleries and synopses of the episodes, offering us a preview of what to expect in October.
Neighbours: The Next Chapter on Network 10 and Amazon Freevee is currently in its second week, but already, the show has revealed spoilers for weeks 4-6, hinting at plots that will continue until the end of October.
This week has been extremely busy in Erinsborough. Over the course of two years on Ramsay Street, a number of characters have come and gone, including Toadie (Ryan Moloney) and Melanie (Lucinda Cowden), Paul (Stefan Dennis) betrayed Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) during their vow renewal, Mackenzie (Georgie Stone) and Sadie (Emerald Chan) becoming close friends, and many more.
The first week back saw the marriage of Toadie and Terese, the revelation of Susan (Jackie Woodburne)’s animosity towards Karl (Alan Fletcher), the introduction of Reece (Mischa Barton) as a new investor in Lassiters, and Mackenzie’s romantic overtures towards housemate Haz (Shiv Palekar).
In episodes that will air over the next two weeks, Terese’s business endeavour hits a snag, Harold makes a heartbreaking revelation, and JJ’s (Riley Bryant) probing takes an unexpected turn.
Terese learns the truth about things that are very personal to her in another scene, and Mike (Guy Pearce) becomes a victim of his own impatience. See here for the remaining spoilers for Weeks 2 and 3.
Looking ahead to Weeks 4 through 6, we can see that Jane (Annie Jones) suffers a terrible blow; images suggest it has to do with her new position as principal of Erinsborough High School.
In the most recent pictures, Jane is seen tearing up architectural designs in front of Terese in the school hallway as parents, including Wendy Rodwell (Candice Leask), look on in the background. Could Terese’s planned retirement community have anything to do with the plot?
As Paul makes a “calculated move that has explosive consequences at Lassiters,” his rivalry with Reece Sinclair intensifies. Meanwhile, Reece is upset by a personal discovery just before an unexpected visitor from home pays her a visit.
Is it really her sister, as Mischa Barton revealed previously to Back to the Bay, that is the true reason she came to Erinsborough?
The Varga-Murphys are likewise subjected to a brutal show as their past haunts them. They’ve said in the first week’s episodes that they’re concerned about a former acquaintance of Cara and Remi; could they show up on Ramsay Street without warning?
The images also feature the Varga-Murphys in Number 30’s living room, which Toadie recently left behind. Given that they were just temporarily residing in Number 24 while Jane and Mike were in England, may they soon be embarking on a far more extended Ramsay Street adventure?
Another devastating blow is in store for Wendy (Candice Leask), which prompts her to recklessly intervene on her own behalf.
The Rodwells are seen conversing with JJ Varga-Murphy in new pictures. Will the teen’s increasing fascination about the street have anything to do with her awful news?
Although the producers are keeping everything under wraps, fans believe that JJ is hunting for his biological father. The latest images hint that Wendy may suffer as a result of JJ’s enquiry, if it is connected.
Toadie too experiences drama as he deals with problems endangering his family’s happiness.
