After creating the fake document confirming the “death” of Andrea Somers’s estranged mum, Alice Wells encourages Toadie Rebecchi to visit Andrea at the psychiatric unit and break the bad news in person.
Alice knows she is playing on the paranoia of Toadie’s wife Sonya by sending Toadie to see Andrea again. After all, conwoman Andrea ran off with their money and almost destroyed the Rebecchi marriage after her one-night stand with Toadie which resulted in the birth of baby Hugo.
And Alice’s plan works when Toadie and Sonya’s have a huge argument, leading to Sonya storming out of the house in an increasingly paranoid state…
Meanwhile, will they/won’t they Bea Nilsson and Ned Willis have so far failed to become an official couple, since Bea was emotionally derailed by the re-appearance of her twisted ex-fiancee, Finn Kelly.
But after some words of encouragement from her friends Yashvi Rebecchi and Xanthe Canning, Bea decides to take a chance on love and make her feelings for Ned crystal clear. Swept up with emotion, Bea and Ned seal the deal with a passionate kiss. Hurrah!
Elsewhere, Sheila Canning is busy packing for a trip to New Zealand with her fella Clive Gibbons to meet his family. But before she goes, can Sheila find a way to make peace with granddaughter Xanthe after their fallout over the Finn Kelly cover-up?
