There's drama heading for Ned Willis in today's Neighbours as his past traumas take him to a dark and dangerous place...
Ever since he was stabbed by his his dangerous ex girlfriend Scarlett Brady, Ned Willis has been haunted by memories of that fateful day when she almost killed him. But today’s Neighbours seems him put his life on the line once again as he tries to banish the ghosts from his past once and for all…
Neighbours fans were left horrified when Ned almost met his maker after being stabbed by manipulative stalker Scarlett on Halloween. If it wasn’t for his ex girlfriends Bea Neilson and Yashvi Rebecchi, Ned wouldn’t be alive, but as his stab wound heals, his mind is still playing tricks on him.
Ned has struggled to get memories of Scarlett out of his mind, and despite suffering terrifying nightmares he is still refusing to go and talk to a professional.
However, today’s Neighbours sees personal trainer Aaron Brennan offer to make him a workout plan at the gym in a bid to build his fitness and get him out of the house where he has spent the last few weeks recovering.
Ned is desperate to move forward and takes Aaron up on his offer… but once at the gym, things soon get heated when a boxing class gets out of hand as Ned tries to get rid of his pent up anger.
Aaron is quick to call time on the gym session, telling Ned he needs to take things gently with his wound still healing, but Ned is desperate to vent and another gym user sees his frustration.
As Ned goes to leave the gym, the stranger called Kane gives him a card with nothing on it but an address, telling him to get there after 9pm that night.
And while the whole thing seems sinister, Ned later can’t help but be intrigued by what is happening at the address and he heads into town to do some investigating.
Once Ned arrives, it’s clear he’s in a dodgy part of town, and once inside the building, Ned is shocked to see people bare knuckle fighting in a makeshift ring, and it is clear he is about to get himself involved in a very dark and dangerous world.
As Kane challenges him to a fight, Ned happily takes him on. But as the fight starts, it seems Kane is too much of a match for Ned. But as he is getting hit, Ned gets visions of Scarlett and he starts to fight back.
But will Ned win the fight? And is this new underground world he has got himself caught up in about to leave him fighting for his life once again?
