The fashion week saga continues next week on Neighbours in the UK, as Susan uncovers Karl’s dangerous financial move and Mackenzie goes on a huge career transition.
These scenes will premiere in the United Kingdom on Monday, April 18th, and in Australia on Thursday, May 12th.
Mackenzie makes a name for herself as a model
Mackenzie wanted to be Montana’s assistant at first, but when she realised she didn’t need another assistant, she had a better idea: Mackenzie (Georgie Stone) should model instead.
Mac was hesitant at first, believing she had the necessary skills because she had always been self-conscious about her figure. Montana, on the other hand, encouraged her that she had the perfect body and could serve as a trans role model for “all the other tiny Mackenzies out there who never believed they’d be appreciated.”
Mackenzie eventually accepted her idol’s offer, astonished.
Her first shot is the following week, and she’s terrified as she approaches the makeup chair.
Thankfully, she has the support of her loyal boyfriend Hendrix (Ben Turland), who promises her that everything will be alright.
The shoot is a huge success, and Hendrix even lends a hand by holding a fan behind her to function as a wind machine, while she looks stunning in a variety of clothes.
Even more difficult to impress Mick (Joel Creasey) is taken aback.
Mackenzie is overjoyed that her first shoot went so well, and she’s overjoyed that she was able to assist her business idol with one of her signature events.
Has she, on the other hand, taken on more than she can handle?
Montana is gushing over her new model, but she’s also a stickler for deadlines, and the next session arrives in the blink of an eye. However, there is a conflict with Mackenzie’s law school studies, and Montana insists that she attend the shoot.
Mackenzie asks her friends to cover for her at university so she can make the promo shoot. She doesn’t want to miss out on the opportunity or offend Montana, so she gets her classmates to cover for her. Hendrix, on the other hand, is concerned about her casual approach toward her schooling, which is out of character for her, especially because becoming a lawyer has long been an ambition of hers.
He can’t dispute how well she performs throughout the shoot, but a part of him fears that she’s becoming a little too self-absorbed.
Is modelling about to have a negative impact on Mackenzie?
Mackenzie isn’t the only Ramsay Street local who is modelling for Montana’s event.
Amy Greenway (Jacinta Stapleton), who recently won Montana over with her fashion designs, is slated to play a significant role in the lavish gala – assuming that the new revelation that Montana is in financial problems doesn’t derail it.
Amy sets her sights on Harlow (Gemma Donovan) and Corey in search of models to show off her clothes (Laurence Boxhall). Obviously, this makes Ned even more uncomfortable, considering he’s just told Harlow that he’s envious of her new love relationship.
Harlow, on the other hand, is unconcerned with Ned’s suffering and is eager to take advantage of the situation… That is, until Amy breaks the news to you!
Later, as she continues to work with Amy on the event, Harlow throws Ned a fiery serve, and he realises he needs to put himself together.
He’s attracted to Harlow, but he realises that the love and commitment he’s receiving from Amy isn’t worth squandering, so he chooses to focus on her.
How long do you think it’ll last?
Susan learns of Karl’s betrayal
Karl grew envious of Clive’s (Geoff Paine) opulent new flat last week. Susan (Jackie Woodburne) was taken aback by it, and it caused her to contemplate for the first time that Ramsay Street might not be the best place for them to be. Karl is now willing to go to any length to ensure that his wife receives the retirement she deserves.
Susan advised that Karl speak with Paul (Stefan Dennis) about investing more money in the tram, and the two agreed that they needed to make their money work harder for them.
Karl, on the other hand, overheard Paul chatting to Montana about investing in her new perfume, ‘glaMM by Montanna Marcel,’ when he went to find him. He instantly dressed himself in his best suit and pretended to be a wealthy buddy of Paul Robinson looking to explore investment prospects.
Susan, on the other hand, shut down the proposal right immediately when he presented it to her – there was no way they were going to hand over their savings to a lady they barely knew, even if Paul was intrigued.
Karl takes the dangerous step of going against Susan’s wishes this week, handing Montana a $20,000 check. Despite Montana’s guarantee that he’ll be back soon, Karl continues to lie to Susan the next week.
He’s still confident in his judgement, so he starts giving investment advice to everyone who will listen.
When Clive disagrees with Karl’s recommendations, he begins to question his decision — has he made a mistake, and is it too late for him to make the right decision?
Susan sees his ripped-up check and thanks him for not investing, but it’s a near call. However, the truth is that he has invested, as evidenced by the ripped up check, which indicates that he returned to Montana with much more money!
Susan realises the truth quickly and rightfully feels betrayed.
Susan decides to get a refund from Montana. The fashionista feels bad for the Kennedys’ financial disaster, knowing she’s in debt and the IRS is on her tail, meaning they’ll never get a return on their investment.
Montana considers returning the money, but her plans are derailed when she overhears Susan disparaging her.
Is Karl and Susan’s money gone for good?
